The Boss

With: Melissa Schroeder

Giveaway of a $10 gift card!

Hey, everyone! A big THANK YOU to Just Romantic Suspense for allowing me on the blog again to share a bit of The Boss!
Mac awakened with a rush, fear and anger pulsing as she turned to face her attacker. Adrenaline flashed through her blood. She jackknifed up, ready to fight, but found herself flattened against the mattress with a hunky man on top of her. Panic surged through her, along with a healthy dose of anger as she struggled against the big, hard body pressing against her. Wrath quickly gave way to irritation, and then arousal, when she realized Vic was her assailant.
His mouth turned down in that sexy little frown that always made her want to corrupt him in so many ways.
“You could have lost your head there, Vic.”
He shook his head. “Nothing changes. Always on the attack when you wake up.”
She smiled. “You rarely complained, except for that time in Thailand.”
His mouth twitched as his expression lightened. There he was, the old Vic. Her heart warmed at the sight. They had always been like this. Banter, fighting, sex. They were really good at all three.
“Yes, but then you had a knife to my throat.”
She remembered that night as if it had just happened. They had both been after the same target. She’d broken into his room with the thought of gathering intel on him and what he had on the little start-up cult guru who had disappeared a few people. She was good at breaking and entering, but he had heard her, thrown her on the bed, and found himself with a knife to his throat. It had been kismet since the start.
“Who would have known the man I tried to kill would become my lover?”


Sick of the spy game, former CIA operative Vic Walker takes time off from his security firm to figure out just what he wants out of life. But peace and quiet isn’t in the cards with a former business partner and ex-lover like MacKenzie Donovan.

Mac doesn’t like asking for help from anyone, but this latest case has her in a little over her head. She crashes back into Vic’s life with the CIA, the Russian Mob, and the FBI, on her tail after a job goes south.

But even as old feelings rise to the surface while they’re busy dodging bullets, the authorities, and mobsters, they’ll need to get out alive before they can have a second chance at love.

About the author:
From an early age, USA Today Bestselling author 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 her first published book , Mel has had over 60 short stories, novellas, and novels published. She has written in genres ranging from historical to contemporary to futuristic and has worked with 8 publishers although she handles most of her publishing herself. She is best known for her Harmless and Santini series.
After years of following her military husband around the country and world, Mel happily lives with her family in horse and wine country in Northern Virginia.
