Get out! Perfect heroes who cook? ๐Ÿฅ˜๐Ÿฆ

Hello, friends!

Iโ€™ll start this post with a fun fact: did you know that today is National Men-Make-Dinner Day? Yep, you read that right! Today is the perfect excuse to get your man cooking, and although the rules say that no BBQ is allowed, I say you should take what you can get. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I am lucky and blessed that my husband actually enjoys cooking, and in the little free time he has, he spoils me with dishes from great chefs like Gordon Ramsay. I donโ€™t even care if he makes a little mess, if I get a delicious dinner (but he does clean up afterward!).

I know what you must be thinking: some guys sound too good to be true, right? Well, itโ€™s not like us, women, are perfect, so I figure men are allowed to get away with a few flaws here and there. Even in fiction.

But if you do like romance with heroes that are too good to be true, I have a treat for you this weekend. My romantic comedy, Unabridged, is FREE! So if youโ€™re in the mood for some romance, steam, and lots of laughter, take advantage of this limited offer and grab your copy from Amazon.

Whoever thought Cinderella had it easy didnโ€™t stick around for the alternate endingโ€ฆ

Everyone believed I was an idiot to leave Blade Spencerโ€”rich, handsome, and head-over-heels in love with me. But I did it for his own good, determined to take the secret to my grave.

I moved to Seattle, pursued my career as a journalist at Unabridged magazine, and almost convinced myself I didnโ€™t need a man. I had enough virtual admirers, and my email was jam-packed with marriage proposals and X-rated picturesโ€”not to mention hysterically funny letters from a clever fan.

Imagine my surprise when I show up at work, and Blade is my new boss. Did I mention he has no idea why I left him and thinks Iโ€™m a cold-hearted bitch?

Just as I decide to prove him wrong, I discover Bladeโ€™s life has changed in ways I never imagined. Having to work with him is the least of our problemsโ€ฆ

 

If you prefer audiobooks, you can find Unabridged on many retailers, including SCRIBD, audiobooks.com, Kobo, etc.

Who’s Your Dream Lover?

Every author has a visual image of her characters in her head. If she finds the right words, her readers will see whom she sees, too.

Okay, that’s a perfect world. If books did it all, no one would ever go to the movies. Many times the visual I have in my head of a hero or villain is attached to someone I know or a celebrity. I have to admit, Blake Shelton was my inspiration for Benji, THE GREAT BIG FAIRY.

A younger Blake Shelton as Benji, The Great Big Fairy (time traveler).

I needed someone tall, blue-eyed, red-haired, and with dimples. Well, Blake Shelton is three out four…or four out of four if a box of Nice ‘N Easy is thrown in. And my Benji loves to sing. Would that make Blake a five out of four?

Pierce Brosnan as Marty Melbourne aka DANCES NAKED.

Pierce Brosnan’s rugged look here would be a great example of a 21st-century gentleman, stuck in the 18th-century backwoods, without access to a razor or a barber.

Do you have a movie star doppelganger to your book hero? Leave comments below. Maybe we share the same one.

S is for Strike!

Hi, friends!

I hope this post finds you and yours well and safe. This has been a challenging year for all of us, for some more than for others. Personally, I often felt like thereโ€™s no light at the end of the tunnelโ€”and that the tunnel is underwater. But despite everything else, I kept my conviction that hard work pays off, and I dove into my work, giving it everything that I had.

This is how Silent Strike came to life, and I am thrilled to announce that today is Launch Day for my next Irish Garda Squad novel, which several early reviewers say is the best of the series so far.

โญโญโญโญโญ โ€œGripping and page-turningly fantastic from the very beginning. Silent Strike is not to be missed!โ€ โ€” INDโ€™TALE MAGAZINE

โญโญโญโญโญ โ€œColt Strikes Gold Once Moreโ€ โ€” Goodreads

โญโญโญโญโญ โ€œLots of mystery with some romance and unexpected emotion to keep you on a roller coaster of a ride.โ€ โ€” Goodreads

โญโญโญโญโญ โ€œI enjoyed a REAL mystery, one that I had to look at all the suspects and figure out whodunitโ€ โ€” Goodreads

So whatโ€™s this book about? Well, Iโ€™m happy that you ask! ๐Ÿ™‚

Detectives Aidan Connor and Jenna Darcy never had compassion for vigilantesโ€”until now.

A politicianโ€™s murder is always big news, but Detective Aidan Connor isnโ€™t sure if landing the high-profile case is a blessing or a curse. The late senator was not as well-liked as everyone claims. As the investigation advances, the problem isnโ€™t that Aidan has no suspectsโ€”he has too many.

Pressured to close the case quickly, Aidan partners with Detective Jenna Darcy, the finest cybercrime expert from the Irish Garda. As they dig into the politicianโ€™s life, the secrets they uncover go from dirty to shockingly disturbing. Aidan and Jenna start to wonder if the killer is the true villainโ€ฆ

Donโ€™t worry if you havenโ€™t read any of the other books in the series. Each story in the Irish Garda Squad series is a stand-alone, so you donโ€™t have to worry about previous backstories or cliffhangers.

If youโ€™re still on the fence, I need to mention that Silent Strike is launched at the special price of 99 cents, which is a very limited time deal.

You can buy it as e-book or paperback from:

Amazonย ย  *ย ย  Koboย ย  *ย ย  Nookย  *ย ย  iBooksย  *ย  Google Play

So go grab your copy, then after you finish reading, shoot me an email and let me know what you thought of it!

Until next time, Mr. Colt and I wish you a Happy September!

 

Fondly,

Melinda
