Santini Sunday: The Ultimate Novella Collection

October 5, 2014

As many readers know, I pulled the Santinis Collection off sale earlier this summer. It was so that I could put together the ultimate collection of the first five books!

Santinis-1 3D



Coming Soon



All FIVE novellas available for a limited time in one book! 
Get everyone’s favorite military family for one low price just in time before the release of the highly anticipated A SANTINI IN LOVE! 

Joint Base San Antonio Army Medic Leo Santini doesn’t know what hit him when he runs into prickly physical therapist Maryanne Johnson. 

Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam Quiet and thoughtful Navy SEAL Marco Santini doesn’t realize love is right under his nose, but once he does, nothing will stop him from capturing Alana Kailikea’s heart. 

Moody AFB PJ Gianni Santini finds the woman of his dreams the day before a deployment. When he returns, he has one mission on his mind, conquering professor Kianna Jones. 

Quantico MCB Vicente sees himself at the last Santini standing when he comes up close and personal with the one woman he has always loved, Jules Andrews. Now all he cares about is being that last man standing—as long as he’s her man. 

Join the Santinis as they gather together not for the joy of the season, but in crisis. One major event throws everything they hold dear into jeopardy, rallying the Santini brothers to support them mother and thrusting Joey back to the memories of when she and Papa first fell in love. 

Melissa Schroeder doesn’t disappoint as she continues to unleash her sexy Santini brothers on us. –Ms Romantic Reads 

Includes the first chapter from A Santini in Love! 


These books are different from the upcoming A Santini in Love in that they are novellas (less than 40K) and they are the start of a long series I hope to keep writing for a very long time. If you have not had a chance to try the books out, or if you missed one or two, make sure to pick them up now at the low price of 2.99 for FIVE books. It is the price of just one, so it is definitely a good deal. November 15th, the bundle will go up to 5.99, so make sure you get them now for this limited time offer.


And so it has come to this…

October 2, 2014

I have talked recently on Facebook about my issues. Normally, I would keep it a little more private, but it is really spilling over into my professional life so I feel I need to address it.

I have dealt with back problems for years. Finally, FINALLY, I had an MRI. The results were alarming enough that the doctor’s office called me on a holiday weekend on Saturday night. I have Degenerative Disc Disease–which I knew about–and now have Spinal Stenosis. It is causing problems with the nerves in my back and I now have issues with numbness in my feet, legs, arms, and hands. The PT they had me in before they did the MRI started a downward spiral for me and I have not returned completely.

What does this mean for you the reader? Sorry to say, there will be fewer books. I will not put a book up for preorder until the rough is finished which means there will be less notice for the readers. Also, other things are going to be put on hold. Only for Him is on the back burner. I want to have the last part finished before I release the fourth part, so you aren’t waiting a long time again, and I just don’t have it in me to finish it right now. Another thing on hold is the Harmless Shorts. As before, I have been having people leave nasty reviews complaining they are SHORT. Although I say they are SHORT and that they are SHORT STORIES, people seem to think I shouldn’t have released them for sale. The emails and the nastiness from people just don’t make it worth it.  Stress raises my pain level and dealing with that has made it not worth it. Since very few people have left reviews who actually like the books, it doesn’t counter the bad reviews so I can’t do much about that. It is what I have told readers before: If you love a series, you need to support it with reviews somewhere.

I will also not be online that much. I am either going to go through treatment or surgery, or treatment, then surgery. Either with, I have to be nice to my back. I can’t hang out online that much and write. I can do one or the other and I am pretty sure  readers will vote for books, lol.

Email response time will be greatly hindered during this time. There are days  I get a little overwhelmed and just have to shut down. So, it might be awhile before I answer emails, sometimes up to a week.

This isn’t all negative though. First, thank you everyone for your kind words for A Little Harmless Secret and for supporting me always! This is kind of good news though because this means we can at least come up with a solution and make it easier for me to get back to making appearances and spending more time with readers.

Thank you for understanding.

That Voice

October 1, 2014

Then, Dante heard that voice. She was laughing as she said, “I don’t know about you, but I better get at least two good filets out of that bunch.”

Santini Book 6It was the voice he hated, the one that had haunted his time at Annapolis. She had always been a pain in the ass, besting him in everything except the physical challenges. And she had not been that far behind him.

The Secret is out!

September 23, 2014

The long wait for the next Harmless book is over! The book is out now and will be loading in most places through the day. Enjoy this never before seen excerpt here on the blog.




Just because you love someone doesn’t mean you can trust them.

Devon Stryker is a man with no past—not one anyone can dig up that is. His made up identity has kept him safe from everyone, except one woman. Five years earlier he let his guard down once, one night of unforgettable passion. He has yet to get her out of his mind. When he thinks he sees her in Seattle, he becomes obsessed with finding her.

Alicia Hughes hasn’t forgotten Devon either. She had been on assignment from MI-6 to find him. Since he disappeared, her life has fallen apart. When she comes face to face with the one man she loved—and the one she fears the most—she panics. When he catches up to her, he finds the woman he has always loved—and the child they made together.

As the old lovers form a tentative alliance, the feelings they both had for each other rise to the surface. They have to let those things go to protect everything they hold dear in the world because someone is intent on destroying them…by any means possible.

»WARNING: This title includes secrets, guns, a sexy know-it-all hero, spies, a heroine who doesn’t trust the hero, meddling inlaws, even more spies, double crosses, cool computer things, and two people who can’t seem to keep their hands off each other even though they know it isn’t the right thing to do. Remember, it’s a Harmless book, so have ice water and towels nearby.


He pressed his groin against her. He was hard and getting harder by the moment. He wanted her…no needed her. It was just like that night years earlier. Something hot and dark moved through him, urging him to take her right there.

He pulled back then lifted her up on the counter.


He ignored her. Instead, he pulled her panties off and leaned down. The scent of her arousal filled his senses. He placed a hand on each of her thighs and pushed them apart. The moment he set his mouth against her pussy, he was in heaven. Hot, intoxicating and amazingly like the night so many years earlier, he found himself lost in her. Her exotic taste danced over his taste buds as he slipped his tongue up and over her clit. Without warning she screamed his name, bucking against his mouth. He lapped at her juices, enjoying the way she pressed her hands against the back of his head. She leaned back, widened her legs and rode herself against his mouth to another orgasm.

He pulled back, stood and cursed. Then he spotted his wallet on the counter behind her. He fumbled with it, dropping it twice before he finally got the condom out. She was clawing at his pants, undoing them for him. He thanked the gods that he decided to go commando.

Ali tried to rush him by trying to grab the condom out of his hands. He batted them way and she growled. He slipped it down his cock, but she was attempting to help him. Her small touches almost had him coming right there. Devon slapped at her hands.


He looked up at her and laughed at the irritated expression on her face. That, along with the British slang, was so uncharacteristic he couldn’t help but laugh more.

“I’m glad I amuse you,” she said, annoyance threading her voice even as arousal deepened it.

“Oh, it’s more than that, Ali. You make me so fucking happy.”

The disgruntled expression dissolved into something more vulnerable. It wrapped around his heart and squeezed so fucking hard he almost passed out. That tough layer she presented to the world was peeling back, bit by bit. It was at that moment, he remember why he fell for her. Remembered the way she had looked at him that night. It made him feel invincible…and it had made him think he had found the one woman who would understand him. In this one instant, he knew this was Ali, bare and undecorated with the years of training. Nothing artificial, nothing to hide her true feelings. This was the woman he wanted, the woman he would kill for.

Santini Book 6“So you had another nightmare last night,” Dr. James said to her. He had told her to call him by his first name. Calling him Ed just didn’t seem right.

“I have lots of nightmares.”

He said nothing, staring at her with those patient puppy dog eyes that were so much like Charlie’s. Some days it soothed her. Today, it irritated the hell out of her.
