JoyfullyRecommendedMolly Webster grew up having to face a very ugly and very public scandal.  That experience has never left Molly and she lives her life doing her best to stay far, far out of the lime light.  But when your newly discovered half-sister is a publicist for one of the hottest international rock bands, it becomes hard.  When Molly and her best friend decided to attend one of the parties for Schoolboy Choir, Molly thought she could enjoy her night and stay out of the media spotlight.  That was before she had her first up close look at Fox and his sexy lip ring, the lead singer of Schoolboy Choir.

 

Zachary Fox is a serious hard rocking bad boy but once you have his friendship, he is also the most protective man around to those he chooses to be his family.  Fox, like all of the other band members, knows that the media, publicity and access to the band members is part of the gig.  Fox felt lust the instant he saw Molly but he couldn’t get close enough to see if she felt the same way as the party went on.  So when he saw Molly leaving, Fox made his move that ended with one hot night’s passion for both Fox and Molly.

 

Molly agreed to one night with Fox, sure that would be enough to cool her lust for Fox and still keep her out of the limelight.  But when Molly learns that the band is staying in New Zealand for an extended period it takes steely nerves from Molly and determination from Fox to extend their night into a month of passion.  Fox thought it was just skittishness on Molly’s part on why she wanted/needed to stay in the background – that was before he learned the truth about her past.  Now Fox knows just what type of a battle he will have on his hands if he wants to keep Molly in his life and that is ALL Fox wants – Molly forever.  A rock and roll lifestyle is a rocky road with lots of pitfalls along the way, but it’s a journey that Fox and Molly travel together facing each hurdle as a team and learning just how together they can conquer anything.  But as the media and fans learn about Molly will that trust and love be enough to overcome Molly’s fear of the media?

 

Passion proves that even a media stung woman and a hot rock star can find a way to be a couple in the glare of the spotlight in Rock Addiction.  Molly and Fox had very different experiences with the type of media that follow public figures and attitudes about it.  I loved how both Molly and Fox were true to themselves – tempers, misunderstandings and hot passionate interludes – as they discovered the love that came out of their initial lust.  I also loved how real each of the band members and their issues were as Molly and Fox came together.  It seemed to me that just about everything was thrown at Molly and Fox in an attempt to tear them apart.  The best part was that every issue seemed to bring them closer and closer together.  The one thing you can’t miss and seals the deal is how both Molly and Fox found a way to overcome huge issues in their pasts just by talking and loving each other.  Rock Addiction is a fun, hot and an exciting beginning to a new series with Molly and Fox’s story the best starting point.  One of the best rock band stories I have read in a long time – in that it doesn’t hide the hard things and still finds a way to bring that awesome ending that romance readers long for.

 

There were two side stories that I’m hoping will become stories so I can see the entire journey on how and if these characters get together.  Another great sign that a new series is going to be a hit – hitting the author’s coming soon page to see when the next books are out right after finishing the first book.  Rock Addiction is a keeper from the first word until the last one, with so many things in between that will stay in your mind long after that last page is turned and it’s also a book that I Joyfully Recommend.

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.

Conner Dillon is working himself into an early grave. After a recent health scare his sister Maura puts him on a plane to Hawaii for a little R&R. It doesn’t sound like a terrible plan even though Conner does prefer to be in control of his own life. There is nothing he won’t do for his baby sister. However, Conner never counted on the distraction that his landlady would cause.

Best-Selling erotic novelist Jillian Sawyer makes her home on the shores of Hawaii and she is happy to help a friend in need. Jillian is excited to play tour guide for Conner and make sure he is relaxing as per her best friend Maura’s intructions. She may write all things erotic but she has yet to turn her body over to a man in a submissive way. That requires trust and Jillian doesn’t have a lot of that to hand out. But if there was a chance of it happening, Conner would be her guy.

The connection between Conner and Jillian refuses to be ignored. What starts as a casual fling soon becomes more than either of them know how to handle. Are either of them willing to change the life they have now to make room for the other? Will they get the chance? It looks unlikely as it seems there is a target on Jillian’s back. Find out if love conquers all in A Little Harmless Fascination.

Woohoo, things get hot in Hawaii as Conner and Jillian make waves in A Little Harmless Fascination! Conner has a hard time leaving work behind a lot of time due to his need to control things, but what better way for him to relax than with Jillian, a natural submissive. Jillian may be okay with his domineering ways in the bedroom but once out of the bedroom he better watch out. I really like these two! They both have difficult pasts that have brought them to their current place. I feel like Conner and Jillian equal each out if that makes sense; they are a perfect match. Ms. Schroeder brings back a lot of our favorite Harmless characters for bit parts in A Little Harmless Fascination. It is always great to get to see where your favorite characters are at currently! Conner and Jillian bring the heat to the story but there is also a danger quotient as well. I always love a little bit of danger with my romance and A Little Harmless Fascination brings it in spades!

Five-Hundred year old vampire Nicodemus Blackburn does not care for London’s ton. Unfortunately, he has no choice but to immerse himself within it when a rash of murders looks like the work of a sadistic Made vampire killer. He must find the culprit and put them down before they call too much attention to vampires. However, Nico finds himself distracted by the beautiful Lady Cordelia Collingsworth.

Lady Cordelia Collingsworth has basically been abandoned by her family. She is in London working to pay for her household. She is using her ticket into the ton to research the man everyone is talking about, but she never counted on Nicodemus Blackburn changing her life forever. How will Cordelia respond to the possessive Nico and what will she do when she learns of his true nature? More importantly will either of them survive the villain determined to ruin them both?

Vampires, vampires, vampires they are fierce and they are fantastic in Desire By Blood! I haven’t been this excited about a new vampire series in a long time! I am shocked by the fact that this is a historical and I am still so in love with it. I have always been a fan of my vampires staying in the present or future. I’ve never been one to enjoy the flashbacks to a vampire’s past but Desire By Blood is simply decadent! The thrilling thing about Desire By Blood is Ms. Schroeder’s world-building. The reader gets to enjoy a memorable setting. I literally felt pulled into the era. Next thing you know I will be taking afternoon tea! We learn the basic differences between Born and Made vampires while also learning about the sought after female Carriers. I am totally intrigued by the hierarchy of this vampire world and look forward to learning more in the next book which I hope is coming very soon!

Nico and Cordelia give new meaning to the word desire! I swear I had to fan myself when these two are in the room together. The reader can absolutely feel the powerful lust between them. Nico drips sex appeal while Cordelia is a bit modest but I love how as the story goes on Cordelia becomes stronger and more forceful with her opinions. These two will be fighting and making up for centuries to come!

I cannot wait to see what happens next with the rest of these fascinating characters. Specifically, Malik and Lady Diana; it was pretty obvious these two could be mates but it is also obvious that they may have to travel a much longer and harder road to find happiness. I can’t wait to discover more about the Egyptian vampire and I just know that Lady Diana is keeping secrets of her own.

Melissa Schroeder’s passionate and poignant Desire By Blood is destined to leave a mark on your heart! It’s unforgettable and a Joyfully Recommended Read!
