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

Janet Evanovich shared a note and highlight from
One for the Money by Janet Evanovich
Dear Reader,
They say write what you know. My first published works were romance novels. Obviously, I don’t know a whole lot about that subject since I almost immediately ran out of whoopee positions. So, I left the romance genre for crime. Problem was I didn’t know anything about crime, either. I’ve never been in law enforcement, criminal law or robbed a bank. I was a mom and a really crappy employee at any number of really crappy jobs. Then I saw the movie Midnight Run and realized the main qualification needed for being a bounty hunter was lying. That seemed like a skill I could embrace, and ...more

Positively bewitching!

As a fan of S.R. Mallery I've read most of the books in this series and I love the idea of the collection. Witches, food and romance - what more could one ask for? I've read this in one sitting. Excellent read, highly recommend!

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
