ATH: MEL - Melissa Schroeder


So, we are coming to a close of the whole Addicted to Harmless Party, finally! I wanted to spotlight one more book, my September release, The Last Detail. It was my first MMF, so I am a little nervous how it will be received. But, I really enjoyed writing it. Here is a little taste of the book. I should be getting my copies of the book soon, so why don’t we do an ARC copy of the book for the prize with the understanding it might be a few weeks before I have it.

Sept 2011
Trust isn’t easy when the ones you want most are out to get you.

Ten years after she ran away from Earth, Lou Campbell is one job—just one more collar—away from earning enough credits to go home. All she has to do is lure Sam Dawson within range of her handcuffs with the promise of fast, hard sex. Easy.

Once she gets him there, keeping her own hands off him isn’t so easy.

Sam’s committed his share of sins, but he’s not guilty of selling secrets. Before he can convince the sexiest bounty hunter he’s ever seen that he’s been betrayed, all hell breaks loose. And he’s on the run with a false accusation on his hands—and a bleeding woman in his arms.

Alone in her boss’s safe house, Lou and Dawson’s simmering attraction explodes into full-blown fireworks. 

When Jared Flores walks in on his best hunter and ex-lover in bed together, the surprise is mutual. Worse, the need he has long felt for both of them overrides his better judgment. After the fists fly, the sparks catch fire into a budding three-way romance.

Then Sam disappears, leaving Jared and Lou in a race against time to not only retrieve their lover, but save his life.

Product Warnings

Hot M/F sex, M/F/M sex, and holy moly some really hot MMF sex amongst lots of weapons and fire fights. Deceitful family members, nasty set ups, and an Alpha male whose lovers have naughty punishments in mind—when they catch him.  


Sam Dawson watched the blonde as she approached his table and tried not to show his reaction. Reid and Denton were here for cover, but he didn’t think either contract agent would be happy if they knew he was sporting a boner hard enough to lift the table. He didn’t want it going in a report. And these two would do it just to mess with him.
Not that there would be a report. For some reason, he seemed to have lost his contact at Zenich Industries, the security firm he worked for. No one had picked up his transmissions for the last week. Considering his assignment had been flagged as covert with an immediate suspense, Sam thought it more than a little worrisome he hadn’t heard from them.
Shifting his weight from one hip to another, he winced when his pants drew tight over his crotch. His dick throbbed against the fabric.
Shit. He didn’t need to get itchy over a mean-looking woman. She looked like she was packing enough heat to take down half the bar. With a body like that, and the weapon she was carrying, she had to be trouble. Sam should know better. Women like her could get an agent killed.
Damn if that didn’t interest him even more.

Let me know, if you were a heroine in a futuristic book, would you want to be the damsel who was saved, or would you want to be right there beside the hero in the firefight?

  1. I would want to be fighting by my hero’s side. I don’t want to be on the sidelines.

  2. I would so want to be doing the kicking of butt. I definitely don’t see myself being a damsel in distress because I’m far too outspoken.

  3. without a doubt I have to fight beside my hero. There is nothing that gets on my nerves quicker than a whiny woman or man for that matter. You have to fight beside your alpha for example.

    Thanks Melissa for the contest…:)



  4. Wow Melissa that sounds like a great book. I actually prefer reading M/M/F so I don’t think you have to worry how it will be received.

    I would want to be right by the hero’s side. No question.

  5. Love the warning, Mel, and can’t wait to read this one.

    I would love to be right in the thick of things, fighting side by side with my hero or heroes, lol.

  6. This sounds like a really great book.Can’t wait to read it.

    I’d want to be right there beside him fighting.


  7. I would enjoy being by his side, but in reality, I probably would be the damsel in distress… 🙂
    Liked the blurb and short excerpt!

  8. I would love to be the badass right there in the thick of the fight. But I’d allowed myself to be rescued occasionally so I can stroke his ego. lol

  9. I would probably be the smartass that ended up being the damsel in distress. You know, the one that would end up being in distress because I couldn’t keep my mouth shut, and quickly find out I was way in over my head. 😉

  10. Put me in the fight, baby! (In real life I’m sure I’d be too chicken, but I like to pretend…)

  11. I would want to be in the fight but have a hero who didn’t want me there because he was alpha and over protective but I would win that fight

  12. By his side when it makes sense–so assuming I’m a capable fighter, I want to contribute; if that isn’t my strength, then I want NOT to be in the way. Nothing annoys me more than a heroine who assumes that because she has a weapon that she is automatically fine…

  13. Well I’m thinking I would have to be rescued first. Cause I was caught off guard of Me and my alpha hero would be fighting back to back cause we have each other’s back.Someone has to watch his back or toss him his weapon.
    Just like in real live. 😉
