About this author

Melissa Cutler knows she has the best job in the world, dividing her time between her dual passions for writing sexy contemporary romances and edge-of-your-seat romantic suspense for Harlequin, Penguin, and Kensington Books.

She was struck at an early age by an unrelenting travel bug and is probably planning her next vacation as you read this. When she's not globetrotting, she's enjoying Southern California's flip-flop wearing weather and wrangling two rambunctious kids. Find out more about Melissa and her books at or write to her at .

Hi Carly,

Thanks for your interest in Jake and my Catcher Creek series! I love Jake, too, and I'm really hoping to write his story someday soon because he definitely deserves his own happily-ever-after, but I took a bit of a detour to write a second cowboy series that kicked off with THE MISTLETOE EFFECT last year. There are so many awesome stories that I want to write, and so little time! But I'm trying to get back to Jake...

Thanks again for asking!

As you might have heard, my family and I are going on a Caribbean cruise at the end of March and through the first week of April. This will be our first big family vacation in years and I’ve made a conscious choice that I’ve been working up the courage to tell you about, not just because–as an author, as a person with a public platform–I have an irrepressible and inexplicable drive to make myse...

“Turns out I’m not so easily broken.”
Melissa Cutler, Undefeated

“Hot damn, Diego Santero looked fine soaking wet. Everything about him radiated potent masculinity, from the slick, dark hair that drew emphasis to the angles of his cheeks and jaw, to the water beading off his forearms and the soaked black shirt and cargo pants that clung to every curve of muscle and flesh below.”
Melissa Cutler, Tempted into Danger

“You make velocity look good.”
Melissa Cutler, Tempted into Danger

Topics Mentioning This Author

“He shook his head again. 'I just can't figure out why anyone in his right head would bother these Virgin River women.'

'Yeah. Makes no sense.' Jack said.”
Robyn Carr, Shelter Mountain

“Jack, there are only two of us here. One of us is going to push him out, one of us is
going to catch him. Which job do you want?”
(Melinda talking to her husband)”
Robyn Carr

“There are times I wish things hadn’t changed between us. Sometimes I wish I didn’t know..." - Harper. "Know what? That's we're perfect for each other?" - Brandon”
Melissa Cutler, Game Changer

“One more salt to try," Kellan said, reaching into the box. He brought a jar of black, flaky crystals up to the light. "Black diamond finishing salt. Extremely rare and too bold for those with meek palates. But, for a true connoisseur, the flavor is incomparable." He lowered her head and torso to the ground and pushed her sweater up to expose her stomach and ribs. "I want to sample it on your skin.”
Melissa Cutler, The Trouble with Cowboys

“The ferocity of her passion was what he'd been waiting for night after torturous night. He wanted her to hunger the way he hungered. To need like he needed.”
Melissa Cutler, Seduction Under Fire
