Jingle Bell Book Hop


I'm so excited to be involved in this amazing blog hop! I'm even more excited to share a fun Christmas memory with you all. Plus I'm giving away an ebook to everyone who comments on this post!!! And as an added bonus just for you all I will be giving away 3 $5 Amazon cards and 1 $10 Amazon card!!


My memory is more of a tradition, but I'll tell you when it all started :)

I'm really lucky in having my dad marry an amazing woman who has always treated my older brother and I like we were her own kids. I was 14 when they got married and our first Christmas as a family my beautiful step-mom Annette started the tradition of giving us a new tooth brush in our stocking for Christmas. 
I know it seems like not a huge thing, but for me it's always been one of my favorite parts. I can remember as my little brother got older and more excited about Christmas and Santa he would ask how Santa knew he needed a new tooth brush. 
I lived at home until I was 22, so I had a lot of years with her and my dad. She's always gone out of her way to make Christmas special and magical for me and my brothers, and now for my son and niece and nephew. 
Now that I'm married and have a family of my own, I have continued the tooth brush tradition! We always get a new tooth brush from Santa!


This is me and my amazing 2nd mom Annette! Not a Christmas photo lol but one of the two of us that I love.

One night. That’s all it was supposed to be. No strings. No complications. 

Grace DeLeo didn’t do one night stands. She was a relationship girl through and through. All of that went out the window when she met Logan in a bar while he was in town on business. 

Logan McFadden liked his no strings lifestyle. He loved his rules. Everything had a place, and there was no space for a relationship or feelings. 

One night. That’s all it took to change things forever.




Part 2 is available on Amazon now for only .99!

Trust. A little word that means so much. 

Grace Deleo wanted to jump. She wanted to dive headfirst into love with Logan. The one thing that was missing was trust. If she couldn’t trust him, how could she love him? 

Logan McFadden knew he had screwed up the best thing he had going for him. All he had to do was tell the truth and it all would be ok. But trust goes both ways. Could he trust Grace with his secrets? 

Can they learn to trust each other and let love win? 





Part 3 releases 1/26/15!!!!


Happily ever after...did it really exist? Did a walk down the aisle with the man of your dreams automatically equal a ride off into the sunset?

Saying I do was supposed to be the end of all their problems, not the beginning. Grace and Logan were about to embark on one of the most challenging years of their lives.

Can they pull together and trust that their love is stronger than anything that would tear them apart? Their first year of marriage would be the most difficult year of all. They would face things that would break up even the most solid of couples.

Happiness, was it actually attainable? Find out in the stunning conclusion of Logan and Grace's story.


Please feel free to stalk me ;)

Cover JacketIt's A Date FINAL COVER JACKET!! Synopsis Worlds are realigned on one winter’s night.

“The thunderous storm that he is intensifies and I'm about to beg him for this.”

The Ballerina I've had plenty of practice being graceful, but he has my heart tripping over my pointe shoes. I've conditioned myself to rely on nobody else and I won't start now. I'll push back as hard as I can. However, he seems to be determined on pulling down the wall I use to separate myself from others. Removing myself from his vise grip just became excruciatingly difficult. The storm that follows this man—no, the storm that is this man—has given me more than what I’ve bargained for.

The Storm The primal need I have for her is deeper than any I’ve experienced before. My world has shifted in more ways than one, and I’m not going to stand around and be held hostage where I don’t belong. The next move I make won’t be for anyone else but myself, and if it happens to bring my world to a screeching halt, then I’m not going to fight it. I’m determined. I want her.

Assumptions Release Day







SYNOPSIS:

What happens when a girl set on playing by the rules …

Leeann Bradley is a college graduate who has achieved many of her personal goals, all because she follows the rules she’s set for herself. It’s simple. You work hard, enjoy life, surround yourself with friends and family, avoid jumping to conclusions … and oh yeah, don’t date jocks. These rules have worked well and have taken her down the path she wants in life. So what’s a girl to do when temptation, in the form of a sexy college soccer player, is placed right in the middle of that path? Deciding when to break the rules has never been easier for Leeann. But when assumptions are made, and more than just the rules are broken … will she be able to find her way down that path again? And what happens when it’s no longer the path she’s meant to take?

Finds a guy worth breaking them for …

Until now, Jonathan Baxter had one primary focus in his life, soccer. All decisions made, have been based on how it could affect his ability to play soccer. His grades, his choice of college, any type of extracurricular activities, were all carefully assessed. All of it has made playing college soccer possible. But when an injury sidelines him for the foreseeable future, and jeopardizes his dreams, he has to work even harder than before. Rehabilitating his injury becomes his primary objective. Until he meets Leeann, a physical therapy assistant whose touch has the ability to make him lose focus. She has him thinking there could be more in his life—in his future—than just soccer. So what’s Jonathan to do when Leeann assumes he’s just like every other jock out there? He has to prove her assumptions wrong.

EXCERPT:

“So, Leeann. I was thinking of asking you out on a date, but figured I should make sure there wasn’t a Mr. Leeann in the picture,” I stated matter-of-factly, taking another bite of my salad. Rather than respond right away, she gave me an amused look. I really liked that I amused her. It did great things for my ego.

“A Mr. Leeann?” she inquired.

I nodded, liking my choice of words. “Yeah. You know, a member of the opposite sex who you’ve attached yourself to. Maybe even have Cobb salads with. Although I’m sure there would be other things you do with a Mr. Leeann, but we don’t need to bring those up. I prefer to just think of you eating Cobb salads with him.”

She tried to conceal a snort by covering her mouth with a napkin, but I caught it. It was cute as hell. That unruly dick of mine began to make himself known again. I was actually surprised it had taken that long for him to realize she was within a five-foot radius. Maybe the temporary jolt of pain I got almost falling allowed for the delayed response. Fortunately, I’d taken Leeann’s advice from the other day and worn shorts that were a little more concealing.

When she removed the napkin, she smiled broadly. “Well, there really isn’t anyone else I eat Cobb salads with. Except you, of course. But—”

I interrupted her, “Perfect! That makes me your Mr. Leeann. I can totally be that for you. Except I could definitely see us doing more than eating Cobb salads together.”

Now she was giggling, and I couldn’t help but watch her as that simple sound exploded in my ears. It swirled around me, making me want more. When she slowed down the giggling, she asked, “So you can see me doing more with you, huh?”

My hands were clasped together, and I rested my elbows on the table, leaning forward a little. I lowered my voice and said, “Oh yeah.” The husky tone caught her attention, and she leaned forward in response. So I continued, “I could definitely see us doing more than eating Cobb salads. We could always try the Caesar, or even a Greek salad together. How do you feel about pizza?”

Leeann burst out laughing, and I couldn’t control every part of my body that responded without delay. There I was, joking with this sexy woman, dick at full attention, and all I could do was stare … and plan.

I needed to make a plan that involved making her laugh like that for me … every damn day.





AUTHOR BIO:

Melanie is an amazing mother of four, an awesome and tolerant wife to one, and nurse to many. If you don't believe her, just ask anyone in her family, they know what to say. She is also a devoted chauffeur, the keeper of missing socks, a genius according to a seven year old, the coolest soccer uniform coordinator according to a thirteen year old, and the best damn mac-n-cheese-with-cut-up-hot-dog maker in the whole world. Well that last title isn't really official, but it's still pretty cool to be called it.

When not being ordered around by any of the kids, you can find her with her nose in a book or on the sideline of a soccer game cheering on one team or another. But that's mostly because she has a thing for the coach. When not doing all of the above, you can find her obsessed with a group of fictional characters all vying for a spot on the page of whatever she's working on. It's a fun and crazy life to lead, but she wouldn't have it any other way.
