Melinda De Ross is a USA Today bestselling author of multi-genre fiction novels. A prolific writer, she weaves humorous romance and tension-filled thrillers with the same enthusiasm. Her books combine the elegance of European literature with the modern appeal of American culture. While she's a law graduate and professional target shooter, she prefers to spend her days spinning tales for her readers. In her downtime, she'd rather read or watch a classic movie than go to a noisy club. She loves to hear from readers, so if you have a question or want to learn more about her books, visit her website: MelindaDeRoss.com ...more

Silent Strike by Melinda Colt
"Oh my, Melinda has a sure hit on her hands. All the Irish Garda books are great but Silent Strike is by far the best. Lot of mystery with some romance and unexpected emotion to keep you on a roller coaster of a ride. Well done!

“I want my books to be the illicit secret pleasure each reader is anxiously anticipating to open and savor.”
Melinda De Ross

“I want my books to be the illicit, secret pleasures each reader anticipates opening and savoring.”
Melinda De Ross

“I want my books to be the illicit, secret pleasures each reader anticipates opening and savoring.”
Melinda De Ross

“In the world I am
Always a stranger
I do not understand its language
It does not understand my silence”
Bei Dao

“Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability.”
H.P. Lovecraft

“Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
Rob Siltanen

“Nothing is impossible, the word itself says 'I'm possible'!”
Audrey Hepburn
