Cowboy Cal Hayden has loved Rachel Gray practically since the first time he set eyes on her. But Cal's a careful, responsible man who knows better than to start a relationship before he can give it his all. He bided his time while caring for his family through his father's terminal illness. Now his father is gone and his mother is settled, but has Cal waited too long to make his move?

Find out more about these friends of the Bradens in LOVE AT LAST, and catch up with many of your favorite Love in Bloom characters, including much-anticipated news about babies for the Bradens in Trusty, Colorado!

If this is your first introduction to the Bradens, please note that this is a flirt not a full-length novel. Like all Love in Bloom books, flirts are written to stand alone, so jump right in and enjoy the fun, sexy, and emotional ride.

What is a Flirt?
The Love in Bloom big-family romance world has become so widely enjoyed, I have been asked by thousands of readers to write the stories of our beloved side characters. While I couldn't possibly fit in writing full-length novels for each of them while maintaining my normal publication schedule, I've created flirts. Flirts cover twenty-four to forty-eight hours of two side characters' lives on their path to their happily ever after, while also updating readers about their favorite main characters. Flirts vary in length and heat levels. I hope you love these quick, fun, sexy stories as much as I enjoy writing them.


A short, sexy and fun read! With a quick dip into the Braden world in Trusty, Colorado, Melissa Foster brings us some updates on some of our favorite previous characters as well as a short glance into the start of Cal and Rachel’s love story. Obviously with this short of a story, we don’t get a huge amount of underlying conflict or resolution, but we get a sweet and steamy dalliance with a new couple!

Horse trainer Cal Hayden has been falling for the prettiest girl in town for awhile now, but he’s had too much going on in his life to give her his all, so he’s been standing back and admiring from afar. Now that he’s finally settled enough to shower her with attention, he notices she isn’t acting like she’s all that into him anymore … did he wait too long?

Hairstylist Rachel Gray has been crushing on Cal for what seems like forever, and she was hoping for something to come out of it, but she’s getting mighty tired of the hot and cold he seems to throw her way on a regular basis. It might just be time for her to turn her sights on a more interested cowboy!
