Publisher's Summary

Family law attorney Gabriella Liakos has one true love, Elpitha Island, where she grew up and hopes someday to return. But Elpitha is in financial ruins, and Gabriella will do anything to keep it from falling into the wrong hands.

Duke Ryder is a savvy real estate investor set on making Elpitha into an exclusive resort. Unlike other investors, he's not scared of purchasing a property where one family has roots so deep they practically reach the ocean floor...until he meets his beautiful, stubborn, and enticing tour host,the daughter of the owner of most of the island.

Gabriella sets out to dissuade Duke from purchasing Elpitha, but Duke has other ideas. He wants Gabriella and the island. Duke's powerful seduction draws Gabriella in, but can a savvy investor who's used to glamour and glitz, and a woman interested in preserving the culture she adores find a happily ever after together?

Will a work trip change Dukes life forever??

Trust - can Gabriella trust Duke with her island but as we'll find out more importantly can she trust him with her heart. Duke always knew he would wait until he found the one and Gabriella is definitely his! Gabriella gives Duke a run for his money but it is wonderful to see Duke following his heart and keeping the essence of Elpitha Island even though it may go against his original plan. The love and importance of family is strewn throughout the story - I want Gabriella's grandpa to be my own. You'll love watching Duke fall.

BJ Harrison does a wonderful job of putting the emotion and angst that Gabriella is feeling in his narration of this wonderful novel. I particularly enjoyed the Greek that is used and the use of Gabriella's many nicknames.

Elpitha Island is the perfect place to go back in time and I would absolutely visit given the chance, especially once Duke is able to make some of his changes. you will not love the time you spend listening to Duke and Gabriella's story in Claimed by Love.

Duke & Gabby...Beautiful

OMG, where do I start? Melissa and BJ did it again...the writing and narration was amazing!

From the minute I started reading about Duke & Gabriella, I knew they would be hot and great together. Duke's fierce, loyal, and loving heart, and Gabriella's heart combined to make an amazing story.

Duke was called to buy the island she grew up on, where her family lives, with an idea of what they would be doing with the island. But, upon visiting and meeting Gabriella to show him around, he realizes that he has to curb his thought process on what they would actually do with the island. His love for Gabriella and the unexpected connection he felt with her and the island cause him to want to do something unique and better than what they originally had planned.

Sometimes the heart and business don't go together but, in some cases, such as this, it leads to something more beautiful and amazing then one could ever imagine!

Claimed by Love by Melissa Foster was a great read. I loved reading Duke and Gabriella’s story. Gabriella is an attorney who wants to see her favorite place, Elpitha Island, ruined by financial issues. Duke is a real estate investor looking to purchase a resort on Elpitha Island. I can’t wait to read more by Melissa Foster, this is a great series.

Super Great Love Story!

Duke Ryder went to Elpitha Island with the thought in mind to buy it. He was an investor. Gabriella Liakos was a family lawyer and was the one chosen by her grandfather to show him around. She loved her Island and she didn't want him to buy it because she wanted to preserve her culture. They both had a strong attraction for each other. The narrator did a super great job with the characters.

Awesome


This book is another wonderful one from Melissa Foster!! BJ Harrison did another amazing job with the narration. 
Duke Ryder meets Gabriella Liakos when he comes to the island of Elpitha as real estate investor. Gabriella doesn't want her beloved island sold. Duke has falls for hard. Her fear of what he will do with the island keeps her from giving him all of her love. What she doesn't know is that his love of faimly is just as deep as her love for her family. Family is very important to both of them.

Good read!!

Another amazing read from Melissa Foster! I enjoyed reading Duke and Gabriella's journey to love. The characters have a deep sense of family that I enjoyed as a reader. The characters had amazing chemistry as they navigated their feelings for each other. I enjoyed how the plot moved and did not drag as I could not wait to see what happened with the pair next. The narration from Mr. Harrison continues to be enjoyable to the listener as the narration was well performed. I enjoyed this book from start to finish.

Cute, sweet, and hot!

I’ve just finished listening to Claimed By Love by Melissa Foster. It is the first book of hers that I’ve read even though I’ve had lots of her books on my TBR forever! I think I looked at the covers and thought they would be cute and sweet romance... Well, it was cute and sweet, but also emotional and HOT! Great listen!
4.5 Stars!!
