Melissa Schroeder is guest blogging tomorrow - fun and prizes!

Melissa Schroeder will be my guest here tomorrow! We're counting on all of you to stop by and help celebrate the release of her latest book, A LITTLE HARMLESS OBSESSION. Melissa is offering signed print copies of A LITTLE HARMLESS SEX and A LITTLE HARMLESS PLEASURE for one lucky reader! So come back and bring your questions for Melissa! She'll be popping by throughout the day.

What begins as a quest for submission becomes an unrelenting need for love.
May Aiona’s crush on sexy Evan Chambers is a bad habit that should be easy to break. It’s not like he's ever noticed her. Looking for a safe place to release the reins of control and explore her curiosity about BDSM, May takes a friend up on an invitation to visit an exclusive bondage club-all she has to agree to is a public submission.
Evan can’t help but notice the exotically beautiful May. But despite his success, the dirty secrets of his past whisper that he’ll never be good enough for her. When Evan sees her standing in his club ready to submit to his best friend, he gives in to the thing he wants most-May as his sub. After their session, he knows one night will never be enough. But loving May isn’t easy for a man always ready to take charge. She might like to submit in the bedroom, but she doesn’t like anyone telling her what to do outside of it.
When May insists she-s not in any danger from the person seemingly obsessed with her, she ends up in the sights of a deranged stalker-with Evan possibly too far away to help.

Warning: This book contains sexy Hawaiian settings, crazy relatives, and a submission scene that leaves the heroine breathless and the hero frustrated. There are toys, bondage, and love scenes so hot, you’ll need ice water and a towel. Remember, it’s a Harmless story, so you know there’s nothing harmless about it.

A brief review:
May Aiona works in the exclusive Hawaiian restaurant owned by Chris Dupree (whose story is told in A LITTLE HARMLESS PLEASURE) and while she loves her job, something is missing in her life. That something is the love and affection of a man, but the only man she's ever wanted is Evan Chambers, co-owner of a bondage club. May is intrigued by the BDSM lifestyle and thinks that perhaps it's the answer the strange restlessness inside her. When she visits the club and is paired with Evan as her dom, she couldn't be more pleased. By the end of their session however, incredible pleasure discovered, she rushes away with her emotions in tatters. Evan is more confused than ever, as the suspect emotions he's felt for May are most definitely confirmed. He knows that he'll never be satisfied with another woman.

Will pride keep these two apart or will true love bring them together? May and Evan are both hard-headed and strong-willed. When threats are made against May and then begin to escalate, Evan is more determined than ever to keep her safe, no easy task when she has a father and a brother who are highly protective. I have enjoyed the previous Harmless books so far and as I've said before, yes, they're a little dirty and a little edgy, but I would stress that Mel's writing style is such that it easily allows exception for a spot or two of discomfort. Melissa successfully puts strong emotion into her books, and conversations and actions are incredibly realistic. It's easy to lose yourself in her books as the characters and their conversations come to life on the page. Catching up with characters from previous books is always fun, but I would point out that while the books in this series easily stand on their own, I strongly suggest reading in order for even more reading pleasure!

Here are links to take you to Samhain to order A LITTLE HARMLESS OBSESSION and to Amazon where you can order the Kindle version. This book is bargain priced and I hope you'll take a closer look and order a copy! Remember, you don't need a Kindle to read Kindle books - Amazon offers a great app for the PC and iPod that are easy as pie to use.

Be sure to stop back! I'll have the link to a trailer and an excerpt to share tomorrow. Get those questions ready so you can participate in the drawing!

I tried to comment earlier, but my pc was going wonky. Thank you so much for the wonderful review:) I am editing the sequel to turn in this weekend and I got tickled at a conversation between Evan and Chris about Micah:) I am so glad that you like the other characters being in there. And again, thank you for your kind words.
