Healed By Love
The Bradens at Peaceful Harbor # 1 (The Bradens #13)

Nate and Jewel's story is an emotional journey. Jewel has had so much loss and sorrow in her young life, she has lost both her father and brother. She has dedicated her life to help her family, locking emotions inside, holding control on all the fronts, to avoid any further loss in her life, as long and as much as possible. She never really took the time to mourn for her brother, and lots of pain, sorrow, and sadness is locked inside her heart.
Nate loves Jewel, and everyone in town knows it, except Jewel herself. But the feelings of guilt, remorse, liability and pain from Rick's death are weighing his mind and heart.
The trek through all the emotions is not easy or gentle. But for the first time, they truly have each other to lean on. Their feelings are deep, real, and raw, passion runs hot, for the first time for Jewel. Forgiveness, acceptance, and love get them through the most. The story is touching, even though not overridden by angst, there were several times I was in tears. It shows clearly the path of mourning that Jewel has to take, and the route of survival guilt Nate has to clear for himself to be able to love freely.
It is a beautiful story, stunning, and wistful. The support, assent, and love of the families is priceless. Ms Foster writes steamy, yet tender love scenes, that heat up the pages, and shows the true adoration between Nate and Jewel
