Born to an Air Force family at an Army hospital Melissa has always been a little bit screwy. She was further warped by her years of watching Monty Python and her strange family. Her love of romance novels developed after accidentally picking up a Linda Howard book. After becoming hooked, she read close to 300 novels in one year, deciding that romance was her true calling instead of the literary short stories and suspenses she had been writing. She has had over 25 short stories, novellas and novels published in four years with seven different publishers.
Being a brat she swore never to marry military. Alas, fate always has her way with mortals. She is married to an AF major with two brats of their own. They live wherever the military sticks

Tricia,
Thanks so much for asking. I do plan on finishing the books, but I have to wait until the rights are reverting back to me. That is all I can say due to contractual obligations.

Hi, Florence.
I am planning on having the next two out back to back, but it will probably be next year. I am currently working on a three book series for Entangled Select Suspense, and I have required due dates on them as that is a contracted work. I hope to have set dates by the beginning of 2017 for the last two books of the clan.
Thanks

AuthorIsland Congrats on the new release Melissa!

All day today on our Cyber Launch Party Blog, we're celebrating the kick off of Melissa Schroeder's much anticipated new military romance series, The Santinis.  Four brothers who believe in service before self, and the women who will bring them to their knees. Each story is a stand-alone novella featuring one brother and his love interest. They do not have to be read in order, but to fully enjoy the reader might prefer to read them in order. Each book features a different service and a location where Mel was stationed with her husband.



LEONARDO by Melissa Schroeder



The Santinis Book One




Leo Santini is a man who always has a plan. It is the way to live a well-ordered life. He never planned on dealing with the hardheaded physical therapist who is taking care of his friend. He definitely never planned on being so totally infatuated with her.



Maryanne Johnson doesn't have time for a romance—especially with a military man. Sure, Leo is drop dead sexy, but more than one man in a uniform had hurt her before. Unfortunately, she can't seem to resist him or his kisses. It doesn't help that the man is as sweet as he is sexy. Falling for him is easy, but she does her best to keep herself from admitting it to him.



Leo knows she wants to keep things simple but when a Santini is in love nothing will stop him from achieving his goal—even the hardheaded woman he loves.



BUY THE BOOK   ***   READ THE EXCERPT   ***   WATCH THE TRAILER












From an early age, Melissa Schroeder 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 an AF major and is raising her own brats, both human and canine. She spends her days giving in to her addiction to Twitter, counting down the days until her hubby retires, and cursing the military for always sticking them in a location that is filled with bugs big enough to eat her children.

Jenn,
Thanks so much! I am actually editing A Little Harmless Submission and I will have news on that very soon. On top of that, I am starting a military series tied to it, the first one Infatuation: A Little Harmless Military Romance will have Chris and Jocelyn's sister, Shannon, as the heroine:) I am so glad you enjoy them.
Mel

Carol,
Thank you! Yes, I have at least two more stories planned for TT. One involves Cam and his brothers and then of course Delilah's brothers. After that I am not sure, but if some characters come up, then I will definitely write them.
I am so glad you enjoyed the TT stories:)

Mel


♋  Carol☯ Hi Melissa,
all of your stories are so good to read, they actually make you feel like your living the adventures that each of your characters experience. Cannot wait until the next installments are released. Are there any more stories to be released for the Texas Temptation series.
Thanks so much!
