Put some sizzle in your summer vacation
with A SANTINI TAKES THE FALL by USA Today Bestseller Melissa Schroeder!

The latest Santini is here! Can Anthony keep that “Santini
curse” at bay or will the sexy dancer, Lalani Hawkins, bring him down?


 A man avoiding his destiny. 

Anthony Santini is happy with life. The former
Marine is now working a dream job for NCIS in a dream location: Hawaii. He’s
watched his cousins and now his siblings fall into the Santini Curse and that
is not for him. Not yet. He’s happy to play the field and enjoy life. It still
doesn’t stop his cousin’s wife from trying to fix him up. 

A woman avoiding love. 

Lalani Hawkins has had enough heartache to last
a lifetime. The professional dancer isn’t looking for love and she definitely
doesn’t need a man like Santini in her life. After the worst blind date in
history, she thinks she’ll never see him again. 

For two people who want to avoid each other,
Lalani and Anthony can’t seem to achieve that. Each time they meet, Lalani
falls a little more under the Santini spell, and for Anthony, he is drawn to
the vivacious dancer. But when Anthony senses her hesitation to commit, he
starts to formulate a plan. Because when a Santini man decides he’s found his
mate, there is no stopping him.

About Melissa Schroeder
From an early
age, Melissa loved to read. First, it was the books her mother read to her
including her two favorites, Winnie the Pooh and the Beatrix
books. She cut her preteen teeth on Trixie Belden and
read and reviewed To Kill a Mockingbird in middle school. It
wasn’t until she was in college that she tried to write her first stories,
which were full of angst and pain, and really not that fun to read or write.
After trying several different genres, she found romance in a Linda Howard
Since the
publication of her first book in 2004, Melissa has had over fifty romances
published. She writes in genres from historical suspense to modern day erotic
romance to futuristics and paranormals. Included in those releases is the
bestselling Harmless series and her USA Today Bestselling series The
Santinis.. Along the way she has garnered an epic nomination, a multitude of
reviewer’s recommended reads, over five Capa nods from TRS, eleven nominations
for AAD Bookies and regularly tops the best seller lists on Amazon and Barnes
& Noble
Since she spent her
childhood as a military brat, Melissa swore never to marry military. But, as we
all know, Fate has her way with mortals. She is married to an AF major and is
raising her own brats, both human and canine. She spends her days giving in to
her addiction to Twitter, counting down the days until her hubby retires, and cursing the
military for always sticking them in a location that is filled with bugs big
enough to eat her children.
