Melissa Schroeder’s 10th Aniv Blog Hop

Mel's AnniversaryIn celebration of Melissa’s 10th Anniversary of the Harmless series, she’s re-releasing A Little Harmless Sex. This book started the series, but has a new cover. Very sexy, yes?

LittleHarmlessSex72Congrats, Mel, on your 10th anniversary of sexy “Harmless” reads!

(Click the cover for more information)

Is it love, or just a little harmless sex?

Max has always been Anna‘s knight in shining armor. But Max has always seen her as a charming, and very sexy, little sister.

Until Max’s cold fiance dumps him, Anna unloads another of her many conquests and she invites him over for margaritas and Mexican food. Too much tequila, too much flirting, and too many years of fighting the attraction — Max loses control and has mind-blowing sex with Anna on her couch. And in her shower. And in her bed. When the sun rises the next morning, both of them must face that their night together is just the first of many.

For Max, he knows he wants Anna forever, but convincing a commitment-phobe like Anna is no easy task. For Anna, she can’t believe she has finally slipped beneath Max’s steely self-control. He is every woman’s dark, wet fantasy come true.

But what happens when Max pushes Anna for more than just A Little Harmless Sex?

PF2 WEB largeMel definitely writes hot, so in keeping with that theme I’m giving away a copy of my erotic novella, PHANTOMS & FANTASIES.

Phantoms & Fantasies is soft Sci-fi, lite paranormal, alternate reality contemporary and sizzling hot!

Available at: Smashwords / B&N /Apple(iTunes)Kobo(Sony) / Amazon-US / UK / DE / FR / IT / ES / ARebooks

After a devastating trauma, Zeenie attended a college mixer and experienced powerful Crainesian pheromones between herself and Turk. Unprepared for the life-mate call, she panicked and fled. Turk has waited and yearned for Zeenie for years while staying dialed in to her recovery. Finally, rumor says she’s ready to date again, and he’s determined to make her short list, even if it means resorting to a little trickery.

Zeenie’s plan is to ease back into the world of dating, not dive in heart first. Especially not with the hunk who’s supposedly bedded half the women in Dallas since she rejected him. On a blind date, he surprises her with patience and maturity when she fights against their pheromone bond, then shows tenderness and consideration when phantoms of her past arise.

As she learns more about Turk, Zeenie entertains heated fantasies of what could be and makes tentative forays into his sensual world. But her initial rejection broke with Crainesian custom and continues to cast a dark shadow on their future. Can she embrace her sexuality and summon enough courage to claim her man in true Crainesian style, or will their growing love be tainted forever?
