Protecting My Heart by Melanie Shawn (Book One)

Welcome to Valentine Bay!

Ella Fletcher spent all of high school in love with the boy next door–her best friend, Donovan. It was never more than that, but she fooled herself into believing friendship was enough.

Donovan Valentine knew he could never make a move on his best friend Ella. After all, she depended on him. He was the only stable man in her life. If denying his feelings was the price he had to pay for protecting hers, then he was more than willing to pay it.

Celebrating their high school graduation, they drunkenly took part in a marriage ceremony using fake IDs. But now, fifteen years later, it turns out that the IDs weren’t so fake, and neither is the marriage.

When Donovan returns to Valentine Bay to straighten things out, will this accident turn into the best thing that ever happened to them?

*** Standalone romance with HEA and no cliffhanger ***

Rescuing His Heart by Melanie Shawn (Book Two)

To Genevieve Rollins, Gavin Valentine has always been a casual hook-up. A no-strings fling. The sexy fighter pilot was only in town when he was on leave, so it could never be more than that. She didn’t have feelings for him. What would be the point?

But when he tells her he’s moving home to Valentine Bay, she just may have to rethink everything between them. Can she dig down under her sassy, sarcastic shell and find true vulnerability inside?

For Gavin Valentine, life has taken a turn. Diagnosed with a medical condition that means he’ll never be cleared to fly again, he loses everything that matters to him, pretty much overnight. The future he’d always seen for himself is gone in a blink.

Can the lone wolf pilot open up enough to let love in, and learn that sometimes the future you never pictured is the one you were meant to have?

New Release! Whisper of Surrender by Melanie Shawn

Stand-alone Whisper Lake romance, complete with HEA–and plenty of heat and heart along the way!

Jessa Meyers never let herself think about forever before her heart transplant. When you don’t think you’ll have a future, it’s too painful to plan for one. But now that the stunning, blue-eyed beauty isn’t “the sick girl” anymore, she’s determined to dream big and make those dreams come true.

Only one problem: every time she tries to dream up her “forever,” all she can seem to think about is Ethan Steele.

Ethan Steele knows that loving Jessa is a probably a losing proposition. She’s made it clear again and again over the years that she doesn’t want his attention.

Only one problem: that’s not what her eyes say each and every time they meet his.

The sexy, brooding U.S. Marshall knows that a plan is the clearest path to success, and he has one: convince her to be his fake girlfriend for the summer.

New Book Series! Whisper Of Love by Melanie Shawn

Stand-alone Whisper Lake romance, complete with HEA–and plenty of heat and heart along the way!

There is a thin line between love and hate. For Allison Walsh, that line was a tightrope hanging a hundred feet in the air, with no safety net to catch her if–or when–she fell.

Ali was barely treading water after losing her big brother, who was her hero and best friend. His sudden death left her to raise her twin nephews when the man that was supposed to share the responsibility with her went MIA after the funeral.

Kade’s MMA training made him a champion, but it never equipped him to fight off the one force beyond his control: his feelings for his best friend’s little sister. He’s sure his demons mean he’s not good enough for her, but he’s going to do everything in his power to conquer them.

When the sexy, tattooed fighter shows up on Ali’s doorstep out of the blue with a bag hanging over his shoulder and a smile that would make a nun blush, he seems different. But after all he’s put her through, Ali’s not in a forgive-and-forget kinda mood.

Will Kade prove that he’s the man worthy of Ali’s heart and trust, or will his past sins determine their future?

New Release! Ivan by Kit Rocha (Gideon’s Riders #3)

As the sheltered princess of Sector One, Maricela’s life is defined by duty: to her people and to her family. Her wealth and influence have allowed her to build a better world, but they come with a price—the responsibility to secure political stability with a practical marriage. Maricela cherishes the idea of marrying for love, but there’s not much romance in the endless line of suitors interested only in prestige and power.

And her handsome, brooding new bodyguard isn’t helping the situation.

Ivan is the perfect, deadly warrior, a man trained from childhood to be the ultimate protector to the Rios family. His focus on keeping her safe is intense–and a little intoxicating. When the threat of danger cracks his icy control, Maricela realizes she’s not the only one fighting against temptation.

Ivan knows that the blood on his hands makes him unworthy of the pure-hearted princess. But from the first kiss, their forbidden affair feels inevitable. He can give her a glimpse of life outside her gilded cage and a lover who wants the woman instead of the crown. The only thing he can never do is promise her forever.

Because spurning her noble suitors to marry her bodyguard wouldn’t just be a scandal. It could set off a political firestorm that would tear Sector One apart.

New Release! Fire & Temptation by Melanie Shawn

“Love is a responsibility. Love is a promise. Love is a life sentence.” – Grandpa Doug

Hotshot Evan Bishop was taught at a very early age that love was something to be taken seriously. The thirty-four-year-old alpha firefighter had only loved one woman his entire life, his childhood sweetheart who just told him she was engaged to another man. So when he locks eyes with a blue-eyed, blonde bombshell who has him falling fast at first sight, his instinct is to deny it, ignore it, and resist it.

Actress Shayne Fox was taught at a very early age that love was a luxury that she couldn’t afford. From growing up in foster care to working in Hollywood, the beautiful ingénue’s only concern was survival not love. So when she locks eyes with a tall, dark, and sexy stranger who has her wanting something that she never allowed herself to feel, her instinct is to dismiss it, suppress, and avoid it.

He was used to being in control of all things at all times but would he be able to control his heart? She was used to life giving her lemons but would she recognize it when it gave her love?

Sometimes the path of least resistance is the one that is the hardest to take.

Stand-alone Hope Falls romance, complete with HEA—and plenty of heat and heart along the way!
