This week Melissa Schroeder visits the blog. I met Melissa at Authors After Dark Reader's Event in NOLA in 2012. She was on a panel about military romance and on publishing avenues. I found her perspective on the writing profession to be well-balanced and forthright. As such, Melissa writes erotic military romance and romantic suspense, often with the taste of BDSM. She has a new release up for preorder, SELECTIVE REASONING, a romantic suspense set in Hawaii out on October 13th. Today I asked Melissa one question about what inspired this new series.
BBTF: You have a new series out. What inspired you to start it and does it connect with your other series?
Melissa: Task Force Hawaii was inspired by Hawaii 5-0. I am a big fan and came up with the idea while I was working on the plot for A Little Harmless Rumor. Characters from that book spin off into the first TFH book, Seductive Reasoning. While Harmless characters will appear, the books can be read without reading the Harmless series. It is heavy in the romantic suspense part of the book.
Oooh, I love a good romantic suspense, Melissa! You can find out more about Melissa Schroeder's books on her website. Be sure to buy a book and tell a friend. Happy reading!
