Melissa and cover model Derek at her Harmless Luau this summer

Born to an Air Force family at an Army hospital Melissa has always been a little bit screwy. She was further warped by her years of watching Monty Python and her strange family. Her love of romance novels developed after accidentally picking up a Linda Howard book. After becoming hooked, she read close to 300 novels in one year, deciding that romance was her true calling instead of the literary short stories and suspenses she had been writing. After many attempts, she realized that romantic comedy, or at least romance with a comedic edge, was where she was destined to be. Influences in her writing come from Nora Roberts, Jenny Cruise, Susan Andersen, Amanda Quick, Jayne Anne Krentz, Julia Quinn, Christina Dodd, and Lori Foster. Since her first release in 2004, Melissa has had close to 20 short stories, novellas and novels released with seven different publishers in a variety of genres and time periods. Those releases included, The Hired Hand, a 2005 Eppie Finalist for Contemporary Romance and Tempting Prudence, a 2005 CAPA finalist for short erotic romance. Her contemporary, A Little Harmless Sex became an international best seller in June of 2005.

She has always believed that romance and humor go hand in hand. Love can conquer all and as Mark Twain said, “Against the assault of laughter, nothing can stand.” Combining the two, she hopes she gives her readers a thrilling love story, filled with chuckles along the way, and a happily ever after finish.

Victoria Dahl

Victoria Dahl lives with her family in a small town high in the mountains. During the summer she hikes and drinks margaritas (usually not at the same time). During the winter she likes to curl up with a book and a cup of hot cocoa and think about all those poor, freezing skiers working so hard out in the snow.

Her first published novel, the winner of the coveted Golden Heart for best long historical romance, debuted in 2007. As of the end of 2012, she will have seventeen books and novellas in print in historical, contemporary, and paranormal romance.

Victoria’s first contemporary romance, Talk Me Down, was nominated for both the Romance Writers of America® Rita Award and the National Readers’ Choice Award. Since then, her books have been nominated for two more Rita Awards, and she hit the USA Today Bestseller list with the contemporary anthology Midnight Kiss!

Good Girls Don’t- September 2011
buy from: Indiebound | B & N | Amazon | Borders | Powell’s
available as an ebook from Kindle, BooksOnBoard, BN.com and many others!


With her long ponytail and sparkling green eyes, Tessa Donovan looks more like the girl next door than a businesswoman – or a heartbreaker. Which may explain why Detective Luke Asher barely notices her when he arrives to investigate a break-in at her family’s brewery. He’s got his own problems – starting with the fact that his partner Simone is pregnant and everyone thinks he’s the father. The last thing he needs is a nice girl like Tessa getting under his skin.

Tessa has her hands full, too. Her brother’s playboy ways may be threatening the business, and the tensions could tear her tight-knit family apart.  In fact, the only thing that could unite the Donovan boys is seeing a man come after their “baby” sister. Especially a man like Luke Asher. But Tessa sees past the rumors to the man beneath.

Bad Boys Do - October 2011
pre-order from: Borders | Indiebound | Powell’s | Amazon | B & N

 

Bad Boys DoOlivia Bishop is no fun. That’s what her ex-husband said. That’s what her smart bob and glasses imply. And with her trademark determination, Olivia sets out to remake her life. She’s going to spend time with her girlfriends and not throw it all away for some man. But when an outing with her book club leads her to a brewery taproom, the dark-haired beauty realizes that trouble – in the form of sexy Jamie Donovan – may be too tempting to avoid.

Jamie Donovan doesn’t mean to be bad. Sure, the wild streak in his wicked green eyes has lured the ladies before. But it’s time to grow up. He’s even ready for a serious romance. But how can that be when Olivia, the only right woman he has ever met, already has him pegged as wrong.

Check out this sneak preview!

Real Men Will - November 2011
pre-order from: Amazon | Powell’s | B & N | Borders | Indiebound

 

Real Men WillIt was meant to be a one-night stand. One night of passion. Scorching hot. Then Beth Cantrell and Eric Donovan were supposed to go their separate ways. That’s the only reason he lied about his name, telling her he was really his wild younger brother. Hiding his own identity as the conservative Donovan. The “good” one.

But passion has its own logic, and Eric finds he cannot forget the sable-haired beauty with whom he shared one night of passion. When Beth discovers that Eric has lied, however, she knows he cannot be trusted. Her mind tells her to forget the blue-eyed charmer. If only every fiber of her being did not burn to call him back.

Here’s a little sneak peek!

Maisey Yates

There’s a first time for everything and for this one we brought in an amazing woman to play guinea pig.

The September 12 salon will have a very special new feature we are test driving, authors via SKYPE!!

Oh the windows to the western world have opened and we are jumping through guns blazing, but do you KNOW who we got to play guinea pig?

Maisey Yates.

Yep. That’s right. Maisey Yates the amazing.

a little about Maisey from the author:

“At the age of twenty-three, while pregnant with her third child, Maisey Yates sold her first manuscript to Harlequin Presents. She was very glad the good news didn’t send her into labor!

Maisey lives with her supportive, handsome, husband and three children in Southern Oregon. She enjoys the contrast of living in a place where you might wake up to find a bear on your porch, then heading into her home office to write stories that take place in exotic, urban locales.”

Maisey will be reading from her newest release Marriage Made On Paper which comes out TODAY in trade paperback and September 1, 2011 on Kindle.

So go track her down and congratulate her on the release of her new book!

You can find her on her website, Facebook, and Twitter!

Maisey we are looking forward to our little experiment! Thank you SO MUCH for joining us for the Denver Lady Jane’s Salon!
