One way or another, this military man is going to learn there is no walking away from love—not while she still has breath in her body.Warning: This book contains two infatuated lovers, a hard-headed military man, a determined woman, some old friends, and a little taste of New Orleans. Of course, there is a Dom who wants to be in a charge and a sub who wants to challenge him. As always, ice water is suggested while reading. It might be the first military Harmless book, but the only thing that has changed is how hot our hero looks in his uniform—not to mention out of it.This is an original novella that is approx 32,000 words. It is an interracial military romance with light bdsm.Also includes for the first time in print the Harmless shorts: A Little Harmless Fling, A Little Harmless Kalikimaka, A Little Harmless Surprise and A Little Harmless Gift.
A beautiful wedding brings family and friends together to celebrate. It also provides the perfect opportunity for Shannon Dupree to finally take advantage of the man who has been starring in her fantasies for years. Kade is her brother’s best friend and his Navy Seal teammate. Shannon never wanted to get in between them, but she is dying to get Kade between the sheets.
Francis McKade has been infatuated with his best friend’s sister forever but always wary of taking things to the extreme like he wants to. A Hawaiian wedding sets the perfect mood for romance and Kade is more than willing to take advantage. However, after being wounded months later Kade is unwilling to go there again with Shannon, yet he can’t stand to see her with another man. Can Kade man up or will he watch the woman of his dreams walk into the arms of another?
Infatuation is overflowing with passion and fire! Kade and Shannon are sizzling together in and out of bed. Shannon is a firecracker and the perfect woman to make Kade toe the line. I just loved Kade’s struggle with jealousy. He so deserved it! I cannot wait to see what happens with the other characters that I have come to love in the Harmless series. It was great to see Mal, Shannon’s brother, again and I hope to read more about Mal and Kade’s other teammate Deke. Even though this is primarily set in New Orleans we still got some glimpses of Hawaii and the Harmless characters we love. Melissa Schroeder’s Infatuation is brimming with romance and it features an ending that is simply swoon worthy.
