Frequently Asked Questions

The Most Asked Questions:

When will Twisted Emotions be released?

SOON! The truth is it was planned for 2024, but as I planned the 20th Anniversary of Harmless, I realized that it needed to wait until after Trust (The Wulf Family Book 3) released. The entire Task Force Hawaii o’hana plays an important role in the book, especially Adam. Right now, Twisted Emotions is planned to be the first release of 2025.

If you want to make sure you know when Twisted Emotions is placed on preorder and/or released, make sure to sign up for my MelissaSchroeder.net News or my newsletter…or both!

What is different about A Little Harmless Sex?

There are quite a few new features in A Little Harmless Sex for the 20th Anniversary Edition.

  • Updated scenes


  • Extra chapter
  • An expanded epilogue.
  • Clues and surprises from upcoming stories.
  • Same extordinary love story.


What are the Original Harmless Five?

With the changes to the Harmless series, I wanted to take just a moment to let you know about the transformation.

First up is The Original Harmless Five series. These are the first five books of the series and all of them were published by publishers before I went indie. These are the core five books that lead to so many other books in the Harmless World.

The books have been expanded with new scenes and expanded or brand new epilogues.

What is going on with the Harmless books?


That’s the short answer, but here is the longer explanation:

The books are going through some changes. After almost two decades, I have decided to give them an overhaul. What does that mean? Well, the 14 books (and Jakob Wulf is the 15th book) are being split into four different series.

I will have more information soon about the extra goodies that will be in the books! Think Easter Eggs, and lots more reader questions answered. It’s going to be fun!
