Happy Anniversary Melissa Schroeder

June marked the four-year anniversary of my first published full-length novel, Sex University: Physical Education. It's a BDSM erotic thriller, back before they became popular. 

My very first erotic paranormal short story -- "The Wait" was published in Rekindled Fire: An Anthology of Rekindled Lovers in May 2009. 

Here's a peek:

Rekindled Fire traces the stories of ten couples who lose each other, only to find their way back together once again. The love stories here contain two unifying elements: profound love and erotic, passionate heat. Whether the story is contemporary or features magic, vampires or shape shifting; whether it involves spanking, bondage, or simply pure, unadulterated sex; or whether the couples have been torn apart for several months or one hundred years; one question remains the same: Will these former lovers be able to rekindle the flame of love?

"The Wait" features a couple torn apart by time and war. When the hero returns, he's a totally different person -- in more ways than one. 

Contest: Leave a comment, wish Mel congratulations! and a valid email address and I'll giveaway a .pdf copy of "Rekindled Fire" and a new gifted copy of my latest release The Big One!

Now for a little bit of Melissa Schroeder love!


Is it love, or just a little harmless sex?

Max has always been Anna‘s knight in shining armor. But Max has always seen her as a charming, and very sexy, little sister.

Until Max’s cold fiance dumps him, Anna unloads another of her many conquests and she invites him over for margaritas and Mexican food. Too much tequila, too much flirting, and too many years of fighting the attraction — Max loses control and has mind-blowing sex with Anna on her couch. And in her shower. And in her bed. When the sun rises the next morning, both of them must face that their night together is just the first of many.

For Max, he knows he wants Anna forever, but convincing a commitment-phobe like Anna is no easy task. For Anna, she can’t believe she has finally slipped beneath Max’s steely self-control. He is every woman’s dark, wet fantasy come true.

But what happens when Max pushes Anna for more than just A Little Harmless Sex?

Here's to many more!
