Synopsis-Banner-2

A man who always sees beneath the surface.

Logan has lived his dream of being an artist for hundreds of years. He’s painted some of the most beautiful women in the world, but none of them compare to Meghan Campbell. When they are paired up to go after the next jewel, resisting her becomes almost impossible, but he knows he must. The witch is hiding something and until he knows what that is, he cannot fully trust her.

A woman who can lure any man.

As a witch with siren abilities, Meg has never had a problem with the opposite sex. That is, until she met Logan. The irritating man seems to be the one person in the world who doesn’t succumb to her spell. Unfortunately, he is the one man she really wants. No matter how hard she tries, he resists her.

As they embark on their quest for the next jewel, tempers flare and passion ignites. But when a new layer of the curse is revealed, they discover their failure could put lives in danger. The two must work together to fight the rising power against them and hope that those who support the Clan survive the fight.

Excerpt-Banner-2

She heard the sound of feet down the hall and knew her morning solitude was about to be broken. When Jack slid into the room laughing, she smiled in reaction until she saw his companion.

Logan.

The man brought about too many feelings to count. Dealing with him on half a cup of coffee was just not fair. And of course, he looked amazing. All that messy hair, his bedroom eyes, and the stubble he hadn’t shaved…how was a woman supposed to ignore all that beauty?

“Morning, Miss Meghan. How are you this morning?” Jack asked, drawing her attention away from Logan.

“I’m very fine indeed, Sir Jack.”

He giggled like he always did. “I am not a sir.”

She widened her eyes. “But you are the son of Angus, are you not?”

His smile grew. “I am.”

She looked up at Logan. “Good morning.”

“That’s your opinion,” he mumbled as he headed for the coffee. It was out of character for the artist. He’d always seemed to be in a good mood until the last few days.

“Did you wake Logan?” she asked Jack.

“Yes, but I needed to wake him. I had a dream,” he said sounding more like the solemn boy Maggie had told her about.

“Oh, don’t you know not to let dreams bother you.”

“Some of Jack’s dreams are premonitions,” Logan said as he placed his coffee at the head of the table. Where she liked to sit. Bugger.

“I understand. But, if they are premonitions, there is nothing we can do about it now.” Meg knew that better than anyone and had paid a steep price. She returned her attention to Jack. “So, Sir Jack, what would you like for breakfast?”

“I can get my own,” he announced.

Logan, for his part, had prowled over to the sideboard to get himself some food. As she had thought before, he hadn’t been what she would have pegged as a stereotypical artist. He had the look. But, his temperament had been one of well, a normal, every day person. Artists, and she had dealt with more than one in her day, tended to be moody and well, more trouble than they were worth. Meg didn’t like moody men. She liked them to be happy and somewhat needy because that’s how she had earned her living for so long.

Still, it was hard to ignore the way he moved, or those long, artist’s fingers as. She could just imagine what he could do with those. Lord, to feel them dance over her flesh …

Jack made a sound and he was looking at her strangely. Oh, bugger. The boy could definitely read thoughts from time to time.

“What else is on your mind this morning, Jack?” she asked as she sipped on her coffee.

He shrugged as he sat down to the table and started to eat his bacon. He chewed for a few seconds, then said, “Did you know that Logan sleeps without any clothes on?”

She choked, spewing a bit of her coffee. “Does he indeed?”

“Spilling all my secrets, Jack?” Logan asked.

“I didn’t know it was a secret. You have to tell me. Besides, Miss Meghan was thinking about …”

“Never mind about that, Jack. Get to eating,” she ordered, hoping Logan didn’t notice her blush.

From an early age, USA Today Bestselling Author Melissa loved to read. First, it was the books her mother read to her including her two favorites, Winnie the Pooh and the Beatrix Potter books. She cut her preteen teeth on Trixie Belden and read and reviewed To Kill a Mockingbird in middle school. It wasn’t until she was in college that she tried to write her first stories, which were full of angst and pain, and really not that fun to read or write. After trying several different genres, she found romance in a Linda Howard book.

Since the publication of her first book in 2004, Melissa has had close to fifty romances published. She writes in genres from historical suspense to modern day erotic romance to futuristics and paranormals. Included in those releases is the bestselling Harmless series. In 2011, Melissa branched out into self-publishing with A Little Harmless Submission and the popular military spinoff, Infatuation: A Little Harmless Military Romance. Along the way she has garnered an epic nomination, a multitude of reviewer’s recommended reads, over five Capa nods from TRS, three nominations for AAD Bookies and regularly tops the best seller lists on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Since she spent her childhood as a military brat, Melissa swore never to marry military. But, as we all know, Fate has her way with mortals. She is married to now retired AF major and is raising her own brats, both human and canine. She spends her days giving in to her addiction to Twitter and spends her days thankful for their new home and the short trip to Wegmans.

ALH Pleasure

Is it love, or a little harmless pleasure?

Cynthia Myers meets Chris Dupree at her former fiance’s wedding. After a little dancing, and champagne, she ends up back in Chris’s hotel room. For one night of down and dirty sex. That’s it, that’s all. He lives far away, and she has other things to do … like get a life.

Chris is a switch. He likes to dominate but he also likes to play the role of a submissive from time to time. His last relationship with a sub turned nasty and since then, he has shied away from anything but straight vanilla sex. When he meets Cynthia, he finds a woman who could change his mind. His mate. The only problem is he has to convince her.

In a carefully orchestrated seduction, Chris teaches Cynthia about submission and dominance, allowing her take the reins. As he leads her through pleasures she thought she’d never experience, Cynthia’s self confidence soars and she finds herself falling in love with him. But, when he asks for submission in the bedroom, can she surrender to prove her love or was it all about a little harmless pleasure?

This book was previously published, but has been substantially revised and expanded for Samhain Publishing.


ALH Lie

Falling for her might be easy, seducing her may be damned hard, but keeping her alive might just be deadly.

Coming from nothing, Micah Ross now has more than he knows what to do with. His Hawaii BDSM club is flourishing, and he has his pick of women. Except one. Dee Sumners is cute, sexy, feisty and, since she s on his payroll, off-limits. Plus, she insists she isn’t into the life. Until one heated kiss hints that his head bartender secretly hungers to be his sub.

Life on the run doesn t allow Dee to indulge in long-term relationships. Still, Micah manages to work his way through her tough armor and under her skin. Yet even as she succumbs to his skilled seduction, her survival instinct forms a plan to leave the island she has grown to love and the man she s in danger of loving.

When Dee disappears, Micah s anger turns to fear when he realizes she didn t leave willingly. Calling on his skills as a former bounty hunter, he tracks her to the mainland only to discover she is entangled in a web of lies and deceit that not only threatens their love, but her life.Warning: This book contains more Hawaiian settings, a Native American Dom who always thinks he s right, a woman on the run, sexy kisses, murderous relatives, a trip to Sin City, and a seduction that is sweet and hot and everything in between. Ice water and a towel are recommended while reading.


ALH Ride

 

When this Dom falls hard, he will do anything to protect the woman he loves.

Elias St John has lived a life most people wouldn’t believe. An Aussie by birth, he has found his way to the Big Island working as the right hand man to Joe Kaheaku. When his boss dies and leaves the ranch to Eli and Joe’s niece Crysta Miller, Eli finds himself more than a little attracted to her.

After finding her fiancé in bed with another woman and helping her father through his illness, Crysta is ready for a new start. The offer of the ranch far away from home is perfect. The only problem she has is with Eli who constantly tells her what to do. When an argument turns into a passionate kiss, both of them get more than they were expecting.

Eli finds himself completely enthralled with Crysta as his submissive. As seemingly simple accidents turn deadly, Eli realizes that someone is bent on destroying the ranch by any means possible — even murder.

Join the Santinis as they gather together not for the joy of the season, but in crisis. One major event throws everything they hold dear into jeopardy, causing Joey to travel back to the memories of when she and Papa first fell in love.

Joey Antonio doesn’t have time for men. Her focus is on saving money for art school. She definitely doesn’t need some jarhead Romeo bothering her. True, every time they run into each other she finds herself more attracted to him—not to mention the kisses he steals are becoming addictive. Still, no matter how sexy the Marine is, she isn’t a woman who is willing to risk her heart.

Stewart Santini, known to everyone as Papa, is convinced Joey is the woman for him. Sexy, smart and tough—exactly how he likes his women. He finds himself falling even before he knows what hit him…but there is one problem: Joey is willing to share her bed, but not her life.

Papa knows Joey is surprised when he agrees to a casual affair, but he has other plans to set him motion. This is one Marine who will battle to win the most precious thing in the world to him: Joey Antonio’s heart.

My Review
This book in 8 words of less …
A SPANK HAPPY COWBOY + FORBIDDEN LUST = DRENCHED PANTIES!

I have been a Melissa Schroeder fan ever since I discovered the first Harmless book … granted I was a little late to join the bandwagon but what can I say? This is what happens when you’re the last one to fall off the turnip truck by means of a reading challenge. But hey how’s that saying go? Better late than never … right? Well, needless to say I am tickled pink with the Harmless journey that Melissa as lead me on and that ride has brought us to the man of mystery himself … Elias St. John. Mee-Owh!!

Eli has been skulking in the shadows of Rough & Ready prowling from the very beginning but since he was never the central focus it has only drawn me to him more and now that his story is in my hands I have to say Ms. Schroeder did not let me down with this installment of the Harmless series.

Elias St. John is a smooth talking Aussie cowboy in the middle of a ranch on the Big Island in Hawaii who just happens to be an ex special forces man with skills that would make a mercenary proud. The deets on this man are chalked full of ab-so-freakin-lute deliciousness!! You have the Australian born accent … a body that would make Olympus Gods jealous from years of intense physical training … the honor of knowing what a hard day’s work really means from sweating day in and day out from ranching … and loyalty for honoring a deceased friend’s wishes even when said wishes start to unravel his disciplined control way too easily. So I ask what’s not to love! Oh … wait I think I forgot to mention the little detail about his mean back swing that will make anyone’s ass tingle just from reading about it. Yes my friends Elias St. John is man who exudes dominance tenfold. Dee-Lish!!

Now with a man who beholds all those fine qualities not just any lady can tame this tiger. No we need a woman who has spunk and a backbone but not someone who is vapid or malicious … welcome Crysta Miller everyone. She is just what Eli needs to make his life compete. She’s charming and empathetic while spirited and secure … she’s absolutely perfect when you add in her submissiveness and knowledge of the lifestyle. Although Crysta’s in touch with her submissive side don’t be fooled and mistake her for a weak wallflower because she will prove you wrong with the quickness. I totally adore her for not only having the testicular fortitude to stand up to Eli but being strong enough to stand by him when times get tough and believe me they do … you will just have to find out by reading the book because I’m not telling. Don’t be mad I gotta leave something for you to discover and boy the “who done it” suspense is a tasty treat that will have you fully engaged when Eli and Crysta’s maturing romance isn’t hold you captive.


Final Thoughts
As each story is read and more characters are introduced to the dynamics of my original favorites the addition to the newcomers has only made the Harmless World that more enjoyable and as I read A Little Harmless Ride the story has only confirmed my thoughts to be true. My love for the enigmatic Eli has only grown since his first appearance and the need to know the man that lurked beneath the emotionless mask and domination has been what held me to this series. But now that I have read Eli’s story Melissa has given me more chances to continue my enjoyment with my new fascination … Sean Kaheaku. He is my new Eli and I can’t wait to uncover his mystifying deliciousness!

Rating

If you find yourself wanting more from Melissa Schroeder I highly recommend her A Little Harmless Military, Cursed Clan Series and By Blood Series … ALL are amazing stories that I have come to enjoy.

Book Summary

Marco is the quiet one of the four brothers which works well for his career as a Navy Seal. Living in Hawaii is a dream come true, his only probably is the infatuation he has for his landlady. He’s not sure he wants to act on his attraction until his brothers push Marco’s temper with a little harmless flirting.

Alana Kailikea is a woman who understands loss. Her entire family was killed when she was only eighteen, leaving her an heiress. A bad experience with gold digger has left her wary of most men—especially gorgeous men like Marco. She never expected him to ask her out, or that it would lead to a romance that has them burning up the sheets.

Marco doesn’t want an affair—he wants forever. He decides to woo the love wary woman all the while taking everything he can do to make sure Alana understands they were made for each other.


My Review
This book in 8 words of less …
SCORCHING KISSES + INTENSE SENSUAL LOOKS = DRENCHED PANTIES!

Before I express my thoughts about Marco the next installment to Melissa Schroeder’s Santini series I would like to share my thoughts of randomness first … I don’t know if most people are readers like me but I’m one to read everything between the front cover to the back cover and one part of most books that I find myself enjoying a lot aside from the story itself is the Author’s Note section or Letters to Fans/Readers.

I take pleasure in reading these because I feel they open up the author in a more personal way … granted you get a taste of their humor and quirkiness or they way they may feel in regards to certain topics by the author’s writing style but still I get a scene of connection that I find has more of a personal touch then just the emotions expressed while reading one’s story. Getting a feeling from an author’s personal stand point makes me appreciate the author that much more. Appreciation for providing us with not only entertaining stories that give us long lasting memories for beloved characters they have created but for also sharing a part of the true self with us readers and fans. With that being said I have to say that Melissa is truly a lovely person and she gives you a taste of herself in every Author’s Note I’ve ever read. She is a gem and I’m not saying that because I have met the amazing Mel in person and had the time of my life hanging out with her back in August 2012 at AADNOLA.

Okay I’m done babbling about author praise and appreciation now so I will move on to what you came here for …
the very charming and charismatic Marco Santini!!

Meet The Characters
Marco Santini … is the quiet intense brother who get his feelings about a certain Hawaiian beauty outted when his rough and rowdy but very sensual brothers pay him a visit to help celebrate their brother Leo’s marriage. The natural observer who is generally genteel has to step up his game to keep his wayward brothers away from his lady love. When we see his inner alpha come out that splash of dominance just completes the rest of the package and as much as I love Leonardo I have to say that Marco has knocked him down to third place in my Santini line up.

Alana Kailikea … (don’t ask me how to pronouce her last name because there is a 95% chance that I will say it wrong. Lls!) is resilient, curvaceous and beautiful in MArco’s eyes and I find her to be a very likable character but very private when it comes to her personally and family especially when Marco enters her life. Having lost her entire family in a terrible accident and a recently ended engagement to a prick who was only after her money she has a hard time letting people in. But no challenge is too difficult when a man like Marco steps up to the plate with all his charisma and seduction.

Dogtags always make kiss better

Supporting Characters
Colin … is Alana childhood bestie, he has been there from kindergarden to her parents accident and beyon. Always showing her love and compassion but in the brotherly way because if he ever kissed her it would be like kissing his sister which he and Alana both will tell you is gross. Aside from Gee causing ruckus for the rest of the Santinis it is Colin who tosses in some truly hilarious moments every now and then to help lighten the mood. But just because he may act like a clown once in a while doesn’t mean he won’t kick some ass especially when it come to Alana. I would really like to see him get a HEA of his own.

Gee Santini … is the youngest of the Santini Brothers and boy does he let his actions show it. Being the instigator of the group he plays a mean game or flirt when it comes to Alana which only sends Marco off the deep end. As funny as Gee’s antics are I think he only does it to get his brother Marco to face the facts that he has feelings for Alana. The only problem is that Marco knows that expressing how he feels is a touchy situation that needs to be handled with care.

Vicente Santini … is back for more when he and the rest of the Santini Brothers come to visit Marco on the island. Only this time besides being the pretend flirt that he is we catch a glimpse of the oldest brother actually acting like an old man. When the younger Santinis witness this it just brings out more laughter and chaos.


Final Thoughts
I should be honest and say that I don’t particularly jones for novellas, not that there is anything wrong with novellas I just find that I enjoy full length novels better … BUT in this case I can’t get enough. I am uber delighted that these books are novellas and are coming out as quickly as they are because if I had to wait six months to a year to get my next fix of the Santini Brothers I will go bugfuck crazy! I LOVE the entire Santini Family and I appreciate how Melissa engages each of the characters!

Rating

If you find yourself wanting more from Melissa Schroeder I highly recommend her Harmless Series which has a spinoff the is Military Romance based entitled A Little Harmless Military, Cursed Clan Series and By Blood Series … ALL are amazing stories that I have come to enjoy.
