Have You Ever...


Lost track of what book in a series you need to read next?

I, I'm sad to say, just had this happen.  I came to the startling realization that I may have missed reading a few of Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark Hunter series.  I was going along fine, loving the books and the characters, and then another one came out and I didn't recognize the characters.  I meandered over to the website and sure enough, I think I've missed one or two?  I'm not sure how that happened.

On the upside, I now can happily start over at the beginning and re-read some of my favorites before getting to the ones I missed...I do love a good re-read!  ;)

Melissa Schroeder Blog Blitz


Welcome Melissa, and might I say score on the delicious cover you have for Logan!  Don't you just love it when the cover gods smile on you.  :)

Now, all you lovely readers, check out the blurb and excerpt for this sexy read, swing by and order your copy today...then don't forget to sign up for the give-a-way.



Bio:
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.




Blurb:
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:

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.
