Get USA Today Bestselling Author Melissa Schroeder’s FIRST military series, A Little Harmless Military Romance!

To prove her love and save her man, she has to go above and beyond the call of duty.

Infatuation: A Little Military Harmless Romance

Francis McKade is a man in lust. He’s had a crush on his best friend’s little sister for years but he has never acted on it. Besides that fact that she’s Malachi’s sister, he’s a Seal and he learned his lesson with his ex-fiancé. Women do not like being left alone for long months at a time. Still, at a wedding in Hawaii anything can happen—and does. Unfortunately, after the best night of his life, he and Mal are called away to one of their most dangerous missions.

Shannon is blown over by Kade. She’s always had a crush on him and after their night together, it starts to feel a little like love. But, after the mission, Kade never calls or writes and she starts to wonder if it was all a dream. Until one night, her brother Mal drags him into her bar and grill and Shannon gets the shock of her life.

Kade isn’t the man Shannon knew in Hawaii, or even the last few years. Losing a friend and being injured, especially one who had never felt so vulnerable. He still can’t shake the terror that keeps him up at night. Worse, he is realizing that the career he loves just might be over.

Shannon is still mad, but she can’t help but hurt for the man she loves. He is darker, a bit more dangerous, but beneath that, he is the Kade she’s known for so many years. When he pushes her to her limits in the bedroom, Shannon refuses to back down. One way or another, this military man is going to learn there is no walking away from love—not while she still has breath in her body.

Warning: This book contains two infatuated lovers, a hard-headed military man, a determined woman, some old friends, and a little taste of New Orleans. Of course, there is a Dom who wants to be in a charge and a sub who wants to challenge him. As always, ice water is suggested while reading. It might be the first military Harmless book, but the only thing that has changed is how hot our hero looks in his uniform—not to mention out of it.

Book Summary:

 Fans of the Justice Team Series will love this action-packed third installment!

As a Public Information officer for the US Supreme Court, idealist Hope Denby knows how to spin a story. A journalist at heart, she loves being in the middle of a juicy scoop and has her sights set on future Press Secretary for the White House. When the Supreme Court Chief Justice is accidentally killed in a road rage accident, and a high-profile conspiracy blogger claims it was premeditated murder, Hope has to shut down the paranoid blogger—which should be a slam dunk until she discovers he’s not as crazy as she thought and she has more in common with the secretive, hard-hitting investigator then she’d like to admit.

Cyber resistance against government corruption isn’t just a theory for Brice Brennan on his blog, The First Amendment Patriot. As a former ATF agent who blew the whistle on his superiors, he’s no stranger to government cover-ups and scandals. An anonymous tip on the Chief Justice’s death sends him searching for answers. What he finds is a sexy, young idealist about to blow his private, behind-the-scenes world to pieces.

Brice and Hope couldn’t be more opposite, but exposing justice makes them partners—and puts them on the track of a ruthless killer. As their investigation takes them into the dark underbelly of Washington politics and murder-for-hire, it also takes them into the bedroom where passion erupts and emotional walls crumble. But when the killer makes an attempt on Hope’s life, will Brice be able to keep her safe? Or will blowing the whistle on corruption and greed mean losing the one person he’s allowed himself to love?

Author Interview

Please tell us a little bit about your current projects?

Well, Sexy To Go Volume 6 is out now which is a boxed set of short stories by eleven authors. We put out a new volume every month if you can imagine!

My contribution to Volume 6 is Command Performance.

Can a billionaire playboy take charge of a headstrong ballerina or will she lead him a merry chase before dancing off into the sunset?

ComPerfTeaser2

When was the moment that you knew you had to be a writer? After someone read my first book which never made the light of day. I was so excited because they were excited. Loved that feeling!

Who gave you the one piece of writing advice that sticks with you to this day? BICHOK. Butt In Chair Hands On Keyboard. Can’t remember where I saw it first. But it is so true.

Describe the “perfect” hero. What about the “perfect” hero for you? I’m not sure any hero is perfect, and I love an imperfect hero. When I think perfect I get this image of a guy with super shiny hair and blinding white teeth with a super cheesy smile that just screams plastic. LOL! Me? I like them rough around the edges, a little dark, a little silly, and super sexy. That goes for books and Mr. Sorcha. *Wink*

What are some of your favorite pastimes? Do you have any hobbies or collections? Sadly I write and read romance in my free time since I have a day job. Otherwise I spend time with my husband.

When it comes to food, are you the adventurous type who will try anything once, or do you prefer to stick to tried and true foods and recipes? Somewhere in between. I can be adventurous, but mostly I stick with tried and true.

What is the one modern convenience that you cannot do without? My phone. I’m pretty sure I would go into withdrawals if not full on convulsions without it.

What is your favorite comfort food? Cupcakes. I can eat the hell out of some cupcakes, especially if I’m looking for comfort food.

What is your favorite season? What do you love about it? Summer. I love the heat and all the time spent outdoors. And I love sundresses. Can’t wear a sundress in winter. Well, okay. I live in SoCal, so yeah. I can. LOL!

What project are you working on next? Well, we have Sexy To Go Volume 7 coming out this month…and a new volume every month after that! I know we’re a bunch of crazies!

Me personally, I’m working on a new series called Tales From Epsilon. It’s a post-apocalyptic motorcycle club romance. A short prequel will be out soon—maybe in Sexy To Go, Vol 7—and then the first full book in the series will be out later this year.

Excerpt from Command Performance

Trish basked in the moment. Relished the thunder of applause. Did it matter if she wasn’t the one standing front and center beside her partner? Not right now it didn’t.

She’d worked too damn hard to become a soloist with the San Diego Dance Theater (SDDT) to worry about being the Prima Ballerina. Yet.

Katerina, the reigning Prima Ballerina for SDDT, nodded and as a single unit the soloists stepped to the right, extended their left legs—toes pointed!—then they tucked their legs behind them and curtsied. Bow your head. Look up, smile, and turn to run gracefully from the stage. Just another bit of choreography to remember.

Dancing the role of one of the four swans in Swan Lake was a dream come true. One realized after years of hard work. The wings of the stage were crowded by squealing women and, sadly, men. Too bad she spent her days surrounded by incredible specimens of the male form who were completely uninterested. Not that she’d ever sleep with a coworker. The incredibly small dance community had the grapevine to match.

The high pitched squeals faded away as she wandered deeper into the bowels of the theater. At her dressing table she found her cold cream, the first step in scraping the layers of paint from her face. As much as she loved performing, she detested all the makeup she had to coat on her skin. Some days it positively suffocated her.

An hour later she finished showering and dressed for the opening night cocktail party. Everyone in the company was required to attend so they could schmooze the donors who were the monetary lifeblood of SDDT. It came damn close to prostitution, but she wasn’t naive enough to believe it wasn’t necessary. It just sucked to play dodge the handsy millionaires all night.

She walked into the art museum filled to bursting by patrons and dancers. With deft fingers she snagged a flute of champagne as it drifted by and sipped. At least there were some benefits.

And then she spotted him.

The obnoxious jerk with too much money, and even more ego. Given a bit of care she could avoid him the whole night. After all, there had to be two hundred people at the party. Surely she could avoid one lone billionaire playboy.

Praise for To Tame the Wind

“A sea adventure like no other, a riveting romance!” -NY Times bestselling author Shirlee Busbee

“Another exciting historical romance from Regan Walker” –NY Times Bestselling Author Virginia Henley

“I was hooked from the first page! Political intrigue, a bit of mystery and a beautifully developed romance that swept me from Paris to London and to the waters of the English Channel! Very, very, very well done!” –The Reading Cafe

About the Author

Bestselling author Regan Walker loved to write stories as a child, particularly those about adventure-loving girls, but by the time she got to college more serious pursuits took priority. One of her professors encouraged her to pursue the profession of law, which she did. Years of serving clients in private practice and several stints in high levels of government gave her a love of international travel and a feel for the demands of the “Crown” on its subjects. Hence her romance novels often involve a demanding sovereign who taps his subjects for “special assignments.” And in each of her novels, there is always real history and real historic figures. Regan lives in San Diego with her golden retriever, Link, whom she says inspires her every day to relax and smell the roses.

Remy’s Painter by A.C.Katt

July 22, 2015 By: Romance Junkies Category: Latest News

Remy’s Painter
(Werewolves of Manhattan Series, Book 2)
by
A.C.Katt
~Synopsis~
Ian Sullivan is in trouble. His father and brother died
under questionable circumstances. When he died, his brother owed a mobster
quite a sum of money. Now the mobster wanted to collect from Ian and if he
doesn’t, he’ll take Ian as his boy toy instead.
Ian’s only hope is having his estimate on painting a large
house accepted by the homeowner. Little does Ian know that the house belongs to
a Rémy Clavier, a loup garou, who when he meets Ian realizes he’s found his
mate.
Now all Rémy has to do is take care of the mobster and
convince Ian, a human, to accept both him and his wolf.
~Excerpt~

As a wolf, he was young to be the Alpha of a region. Rémy was only seventy, but he was well trained for this job by the Chief Alpha himself. It was a tribute to Rémy’s acumen that he was asked to serve on the council as Alpha not only for his pack but also for the Northeastern Canadian and American packs at such young an age. He would have been content to stay as Alpha of the Catskill wolf pack and within his own territory, but destiny and the gods had other ideas. There was no one else to sit on the council and be in charge of the packs. Rémy was it.

Rémy sat in the kitchen. He heard Roland go to the front door only to find the painter had gone to the rear. The painter is here. He seems too young to be able to do such a large job. He’s at the kitchen door. He parked in the alley. Roland told him through the Alpha link.

I’ll answer the door and let him into the kitchen. Young or not, the company comes highly recommended.

Rémy opened the back door and stood by the stairs. Ian Sullivan stuck out his hand to shake Rémy’s. Rémy smelled green apples and cinnamon. They’re fingertips touched and Rémy’s inner wolf said, Mate—Mine.

BEYOND THE PAGE: How Editors Find Authors and Manuscripts

July 21, 2015 By: Romance Junkies Category: Latest News

NYC (1)

July 20, 2015

BEYOND THE PAGE: How Editors Find Authors and Manuscripts

It has arrived! The second installment in our BEYOND THE PAGE series, a tell-all about the process of turning a manuscript into a published book. 

Jane Arbogast is the Assistant Editor at FFF Digital, and she found FFF author Catrina Burgess on Wattpad. Read her bio here, and then read all about how she finds books for FFF Dig:

First of all, Serious questions that must be asked:

You’re ordering at Starbucks—what’s your drink of choice? Not a huge Starbucks fan. Maybe just a green tea …

Current book you’re reading for fun? Disclaimer by Renée Knight

What’s your go-to snack food? Definitely popcorn, but if there’s none of that around—pretzels!

What’s an object sitting on or by your desk? TUMS for when I eat too many of the above snacks.

Now, down to business:

How do you go about finding stories for FFFDig, and what are you looking for in a story?

Full Fathom Five Digital loves Wattpad (and other similar online story databases like fictionpress, and fanfiction.net, and Archive of Our Own… the list goes on). Besides our regular submissions list (in which authors, or agents on behalf of authors, submit their manuscripts directly to us), those user-driven websites are definitely our go-to places to search for the best and most original content.

The challenge there for a publisher is the seemingly limitless wealth of material. It truly is a process for us to sort through the thousands and thousands of stories to find that one, rare piece of writing that really speaks to us. The vastness of the internet these days is a curse and a blessing—but mostly a blessing, because without these sites, which allow writers to post their work for all to see, we would be forced to sit back and wait for authors to come to us. These websites let us take a more proactive approach. Some of our most popular and successful titles were originally fanfiction and stories published on sites like Wattpad (ahem, The Dark Rituals!). It’s a great resource, and as more and more publishers become aware of this phenomena, it has become a race to find the best material! This means we have to be even more innovative and forward-thinking in order to see potential in works that other publishers have yet to recognize.

When we’re on the hunt to find new material, FFFDig is looking for a pretty specific type of story, although it’s not so easy to define what, exactly, that means! We publish commercial fiction, so we look for stories that are accessible, concise, and that can usually fit into clear genre categories (although, this isn’t always the case). When evaluating a submission or online story, we ask ourselves several questions: Is the writing good enough that we don’t need to spend lots of time and effort overhauling it? How is the character and plot development? Is there a clear beginning, middle, and end to the story? Does it have potential to be a series? Have the characters kept us engaged throughout the story?

We actually have a “top secret” scoring rubric that we use to evaluate each submission we look at and give it a numerical value, which helps us sort the definite “no’s,” from the “maybe’s” and the “yes’s.” But, even with this scoring system, at the end of the day our answer for each submission is not so exact.

There always has to be something—an “it factor”—that draws us to the manuscript. And we not only have to love it ourselves, but we have to really believe that we’ll be able to successfully sell it to readers—which, from a publisher’s perspective, is arguably the most important factor to consider. Often, we deliberate amongst ourselves about acquiring certain titles for months. There’s never a “right” answer, and when it comes to the final decision, we have to trust our intuition and go with our gut. A lot of times we disagree with each other, or feel strongly about certain aspects of the book. We deliberate a lot, and weigh whether we think the story has potential and whether we can help an author take their manuscript from its raw stages to a successful, published book!

Aside from content, we also consider the marketability of the book (can we and how will we sell this book?). Some of the things we ask ourselves include: Does the author already have a following? If the story is posted on Wattpad or a similar site, what feedback has it received?

In the case of Catrina’s Dark Rituals series, I was looking at the list of winners of the 2014 Wattpad Prize. Awakening had over one million reads and had also snagged the title of best suspense story. Those credentials were impressive (if a million people choose to read a story, there must be something to it!). I immediately got to reading and could tell that we had a special series on our hands that was both highly original and commercial enough to be easily marketable. It was easy to like the main character, Colina. The only way to get this revenge is to learn some seriously dark magic—and what person, no matter their age, doesn’t understand what it’s like to feel dark inside? (Of course, later the FFFDig team learned that the darkness spoke to us so clearly because Cat drew on her own life experience when writing—see last week’s tell-all!) Immediately after reading the story and presenting it to our director, I contacted Cat via her Wattpad profile and asked if she would consider publishing her work with Full Fathom Five Digital. The rest is history!

P.S. In the past we have had people ask us whether we have an age requirement for submissions—we don’t! Whether this is your first attempt at writing a book or you are a seasoned veteran, we are interested in looking at your story. In fact, our youngest author is an amazingly talented 16-year-old whose story we found on figment.com, another Wattpad-like site.

Stay tuned next week as our BEYOND THE PAGE series continues. Next Tuesday, Cat comes back to tell us why she decided to sign with FFF Digital.

What is BEYOND THE PAGE?

Ever wonder what happens after you sign with a publishing house? Catrina Burgess, author of The Dark Rituals series coming this October, has convinced us to give you a behind-the-scenes look at how a manuscript becomes a finished book. Tune in every Tuesday for a new installment, and check out the series on the author’s blog at catrinaburgess.com!

But then Nathan himself falls ill, and he and Chloe must work from his penthouse while he recuperates.

Deadly Intent by Misty Evans

July 20, 2015 By: Romance Junkies Category: Latest News

A note from Misty:

Dear Reader,

Nothing pulls on my heartstrings more than kids and dogs.

The World Health Organization estimates there are 1.4 million kids worldwide who, like Lexie in Deadly Intent, are blind. Historically in the U.S. blind children and youth did not receive guide dogs until they reached the age of 18.

During my research, however, I stumbled upon the MIRA Foundation. MIRA USA was founded to provide guide dogs free of charge to blind children and youth between the ages of 11-17. MIRA has been successfully pairing guide dogs with children and youth since 1991, and they remain the only organization in the world dedicated to training guide dogs for this age group.

At $60,000 per placement, these dogs present a significant expense. MIRA USA pays all of the costs associated with receiving a dog as well as all of the follow-up training that takes place after the student returns home.

Also in my research, I came across 4 Paws For Ability. Their mission is to enrich the lives of children with disabilities by the training and placement of quality, task-trained service dogs to provide increased independence for the children and assistance to their families. They place dogs with youth and veterans and assist with animal rescue when possible. A win-win if I ever saw one.

I can’t say enough about these two amazing groups. A portion of the proceeds from the sales of this story will be donated to MIRA and 4Paws4Ability. I hope you’ll help spread the word about these great organizations and the work they do to help kids and adults alike!

Happy reading!

Misty

When orders come down that he has to protect the sexy, but oh-so-aloof, Agent Diaz without breaking his cover, Nelson must put his skills to the ultimate test. Especially since a previous relationship with Sophie compromised his career and wreaked havoc on his heart.

South of the border is no place to die…

Nelson’s never gotten over the time he spent in Sophie’s bed or the fact she double-crossed him on their last mission together. He can’t trust her…and she doesn’t trust anybody. As the two fight their red-hot, south of the border attraction, Nelson discovers a secret that could destroy Sophie’s world forever. Once again, he’s forced to put his job—and his life—on the line for her. Can he keep her alive and out of prison? Or will their careers, as well as their hearts, go up in the flames of desire?

Cuba Undercover2[5]

About Cuba Undercover

Description: Cuban-American TV reporter Rebecca Menendez’s success comes from playing by the rules. When she’s kidnapped by a fierce and intensely handsome man who needs her help, however, all of those rules seem pointless. Nothing could have prepared her for being taken hostage…or the irresistible reward if she complies: information about her long-thought dead father. Antonio Vega has spent almost every day of his adult life dreaming of revenging his father’s death. With his sister’s life and freedom in jeopardy, Antonio isn’t taking any chances. But once Rebecca and Antonio are in Cuba, they’re immersed in a world of corruption, deceit, and betrayal. It’s a deadly game…and there are no rules.

Check out the one of kind book trailer for Cuba Undercover here!

Here is an exclusive excerpt from Cuba Undercover:

“You sound like a man in love.”

“I am in love with Havana, with the city, the people, and our culture.”

Our culture. She didn’t feel the same connection. Never had. One thing had always been standing in the way. “But you hate the government.”

His body tensed, and he took a step to the side, putting distance between them. “Yes, Rebecca.” That condescending tone had returned. “You know how I feel about the government.”

For so many of their people, the problem came down to one man and his family, the hate so strong Cuban Americans could see nothing else. Her own mother had forbidden her to even say his name in the house. “Is this a Castro thing?” As if she had to ask. Antonio had the hate, and he had it bad. It had been tattooed all over his face from the moment she’d met him.

He stomped away, putting even more distance between them. “It’s a Communist thing.” He gestured toward the city. “First the government takes away religion.” Turning back to face her, a fire ignited in his dark eyes. “When you do that, you strip people of hope and separate them from their morals and values.” Crossing his arms, he stared across the bay. “Then you shred every iota of what makes a person unique, under the pretense of making everyone equal, but when you do that you take away drive and desire. You create a complacent society, weak from dependence, unable to dream and unwilling to raise a hand toward change.”

Jesus, he spoke like a politician, if a notably scruffy one with his goatee and strands of his crazy rock-and-roll-style hair blowing in the hot Havana breeze. Despite the fact that his words were resonating deep within her, the reporter in her automatically played the devil’s advocate. “Do you think you speak for everyone here in Cuba, or are you just speaking on behalf of the angry Cuban Americans back in Florida?”

He twisted toward her, nailing her to the space where she stood with a stare as hot as glue from a gun. She knew she’d touched a nerve, and she didn’t know why she felt the urge to push him like this. Honestly, this was not a man she wanted to piss off. Like it or not, Antonio was her life raft back to America. And after witnessing him with his family, she was actually starting to like him. At the very least, she admired him. Not every man would be so steadfast in his devotion to his family, risking life and limb to care for and liberate them.

Then there was the way he looked at her at times, with a heated gaze that made her insides quiver. And whenever they touched…

Hot Nights with the Fireman by Lynne Silver

July 18, 2015 By: Romance Junkies Category: Latest News

Hot-Nights-with-the-Fireman-Release-Week-Blitz

About Hot Nights with the Fireman

Everyone in Washington, DC, knows that when the heat is on, you call Valerie Wainright. This brilliant, brassy PR maven can spin any hot scandal, and she’s never let a client ruffle her feathers. Yet when she agrees to teach DC’s bravest how to handle a media frenzy, she faces an entirely different kind of fire. Keeping things all business and no pleasure is far harder than she expected.

After steamy photos ignite the Internet, firefighter Jason Moore instantly goes from hero to bad boy. While he couldn’t care less about an online rep, he cares a lot about his job and saving lives. If Valerie can help clear his name, he’ll do what she says-even if it means forcing himself to keep his hands off her. But beneath Valerie’s cool cover, Jason feels a smoldering desire that lights his own. And this is one inferno he’ll definitely want to stoke . .
