Little Harmless Rumor

Rumors are swirling about the fall of Sean Kaheaku, but he’s ignoring them. Six months earlier, he had his entire world turned upside down and he still doesn’t know what to do about it. He retreated to his home in Hawaii to recover and reassess what he wants to do now that he’s been burned as a security agent.

Now lovers, Randy and Jamie arrive in Honolulu to find the lover they once knew is now even more secretive and belligerent. He refuses their help, but they are both too stubborn to leave—especially since they sense something dangerous is stalking Sean.

As the three lovers spend more time together, old feelings float to the surface and the twosome becomes a threesome. Nights are even hotter than the Hawaiian sun, and all three lovers find the connection exciting and overwhelming. But, the trouble is still out there and arrives intent on destroying Sean and everything he loves—including Randy and Jaime.

Warning: This book contains three spies who like to play games in and out of the bedroom, hot m/m loving, more m/m/f loving, dangerous games, lies, a few misdemeanors, and love scenes so hot, even most Addicts will be shocked. There is also a group of Alpha males with badges who will have their own series, a heroine who knows how to handle her two men, and two men who know exactly what she likes. As usual, ice and towels should be handy to help you through the book.

5 Stars

Melissa Schroeder turns up the heat up in Hawaii with the hottest and latest book in her Harmless Series, Rumor.

Sean, Jamie and Randy, each commanding, dangerous and strong willed, yet so different they complimented and challenged each other perfectly.  This M/M/F story is truly Ms. Schroeder’s finest. The love scenes are smoking, the emotions are deep and raw, and you feel the love coming from the pages.  I will be honest, I don’t know what worked me up more the danger, suspense and twists of the plot or tantalizing passion that two Doms and a beautiful woman realize they were missing.
The suspense keeps you on edge while the wicked passion has the pages turning. A trio of lovers, a dangerous secret and paradise makes A Harmless Little Rumor the most intense and emotional book of the series. Leaving the reader satisfied while building up what’s to come next in Hawaii.

Release Date: July 14, 2015



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.



 4.5 Stars

 Anthony is stubborn, somewhat pig headed and happy in his single life. He will tell you how it is without thinking twice about. Blunt is a light way of putting it. He is also a Santini. Good looking and being built is written into their military blood. As is a curse. Anthony swore that he wouldn’t fall into the Santini curse. Living the life with his dream job in paradise, Anthony finds the rock that makes him fall hard. Now the truly hard part is making her see what’s falling into their lives.

Lalani is beauty inside and out. Smart, caring and real. Being the daughter of a marine has make her a tough woman and past love has given her a guarded heart. Returning to Hawaii from the fast paced life of New York, for family and starting a dance school, Lalani life need a change for the good. Good changes become frustrating when an ex marine she wants nothing to do with gets under her skin.
Melissa Schroeder takes us to Hawaii for what is now my favorite Santini book. Anthony and Lalani make you laugh from the moment you meet them. Both wanting to stay as far from one another as they could, they couldn’t seem to stay away. No instance flames here. A steady building attraction that gives Anthony Santini the fall of his life. A Santini Takes the Fall is funny, sexy and passionate. Everything g I have come to love in a Melissa Schroeder book!
