Santini Christmas Party Day Four - Melissa Schroeder

Santini Christmas Party Day Four

Yeah, I took a day off yesterday. I figured most of us in the US along with anyone celebrating Hanukkah wouldn’t be online much. So, we will pick up today and then tomorrow will be the last day! And, I will do the interview tomorrow morning!

When I first came up with the idea for the Santinis, one of the first people I told was Brandy Walker. In fact, I think she was THE first person I told. At the time, she was my suffering PA (before she became a successful author). It was January or Febuary and I thought it would be cool to have four brothers who all served in four different services. Then, I got a crazy notion to have the books all release in one month. Cuz, I don’t have any stress in my life at all! HAHAHAHA

So, the guys came to me, and they were all fantastic. Readers all seemed to have their favorite of the group. One thing I liked about each one of the guys is that they were very individual to me and I hope that I conveyed that.  They are the feature of this day’s question which is, if you read The Santinis, which one is your fav??

And if you haven’t read them, there is no time like the present! You can get the Santinis Collection, all four novellas, for 3.99!


Leo Santini is a man who always has a plan. It is the way to live a well-ordered life. He never planned on dealing with the hardheaded physical therapist who is taking care of his friend. He definitely never planned on being so totally infatuated with her.

Maryanne Johnson doesn’t have time for a romance—especially with a military man. Sure, Leo is drop dead sexy, but more than one man in a uniform had hurt her before. Unfortunately, she can’t seem to resist him or his kisses. It doesn’t help that the man is as sweet as he is sexy. Falling for him is easy, but she does her best to keep herself from admitting it to him.

Leo knows she wants to keep things simple but when a Santini is in love nothing will stop him from achieving his goal—even the hardheaded woman he loves.


Marco is the quiet one of the four brothers which works well for his career as a Navy Seal. Living in Hawaii is a dream come true, his only probably is the infatuation he ha

s for his landlady. He’s not sure he wants to act on his attraction until his brothers push Marco’s temper with a little harmless flirting.

Alana Kailikea is a woman who understands loss. Her entire family was killed when she was only eighteen, leaving her an heiress. A bad experience with gold digger has left her wary of most men—especially gorgeous men like Marco. She never expected him to ask her out, or that it would lead to a romance that has them burning up the sheets.

Marco doesn’t want an affair—he wants forever. He decides to woo the love wary woman all the while taking everything he can do to make sure Alana understands they were made for each other




The youngest of the Santinis, Gee has always been the biggest flirt. He usually has no problem charming women. That is until he spies Kianna Jones across the room. For once in his life, he is unable to charm her into a date.

Kianna is a woman who doesn’t expect romance, especially with a sexy PJ who is five years younger than she is. But, he just won’t give up so she agrees to a date, which turns into several and eventually to the best sex of her life. Still, she isn’t ready to commit beyond their present status.

Gee isn’t happy when Kianna resists taking their relationship to the next level but he refuses to give up. If there is one thing a Santini understands is that nothing worth fighting for comes easily—and he is prepared to launch the fight of his life.



Vince Santini considers himself the last man standing. Being the only unmarried brother is a badge of honor, until the woman had always been in his heart returns. Acting on his attraction hadn’t been an option seeing that she was his best friend’s girl, but now she is single and free for him to pursue.

Julianna Andrews is a survivor. It took her years to walk away from her abusive husband, and now all she cares about is building her business. She doesn’t have time for Vince or the temptation he represents. He is a reminder of her past. One argument leads to a heated kiss, and the passion that threatens to consume them both.

Vince knows that Jules might not be ready for happily ever after with anyone, but he is bound and determined to convince her that he can give her that—and more. This Santini is happy to be the last man standing—as long as he is HER man.

  1. Choose a favorite? I’m going back and rereading them all. Maybe then I can make a decision but I don’t think that’s possible. Each guy is special for a different reason. It’s like picking my favorite child!

  2. Really, pick just one… I can say Vincent off the top of my head, but I really do love all the brothers. They each have a different type of specialness going on!!!

  3. Mel,
    You keep making this hard. How can I pick just one. They each hit your heart in a different way. Hummm! Marco, no Leo, no Marco. I can’t seem to choose.

  4. I haven’t read them yet but so far I’m loving them all from what I’ve read on other blogs and here. 🙂
