Hello, everyone. Day three of the tour and I want to talk about music.

Many of my readers know how much music plays into my writing. Some of my best memories are filtered through the music of the time. I even danced with my husband the first night we met ūüėČ

So, it makes sense that I have a musical soundtrack for each of my books and of course, Tease Me was no different. So, here are a few of the songs I wrote to while I was writing:


I Wanna- All American Rejects ¬† ¬† ¬†¬†Don‚Äôt You Wanna Stay ‚Äď Jason Aldean w/ Kelly Clarkson ¬† ¬†¬†Catch My Breath -Kelly Clarkson

She‚Äôs My Kind of RainTim McGraw ¬† ¬†ThenBrad Paisley ¬† ¬†BelongCarey Brothers ¬† ¬†I Never Told You ‚Äď Colbie Caillat

Draw Me a Map ‚Äď Dierks Bentley ¬† ¬†(You Want To) Make a Memory – Bon Jovi

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 Potter 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 book.

Since the publication of her first book in 2004, Melissa has had close to 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. In 2011, Melissa branched out into self-publishing with A Little Harmless Submission and the popular military spinoff, Infatuation: A Little Harmless Military Romance. Along the way she has garnered an epic nomination, a multitude of reviewer’s recommended reads, over five Capa nods from TRS, twelve nominations for AAD Bookies, winning both Most Accessible Author and Author of the Year, and regularly tops the best seller lists on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. She recently had her first USA Today bestselling book, The Santinis Collection.

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, happy her husband is finally retired and they are living where the bugs die in the winter.
