The Santinis...and a contest

Yay, The Santinis Collection is now in print. Hurrah! I have been so overwhelmed by response to the brothers. I am going to be giving away 3 signed copies to 3 different winners. Plus, every comment here on the blog will get .10  ONE DOLLAR donated from me to the Wounded Warrior Project. (up to 500.00)
The contest ends at noon, central time, July 3.
And be sure to check out my VIRTUAL SIGNING, where I have not only The Santinis but also a lot of great swag.

This is open INTERNATIONALLY.

THE SANTINIS

Four brothers who believe in service before self and the women who will bring them to their knees.

LEONARDO Joint Base San Antonio Army Medic Leo Santini doesn’t know what hit him when he runs into prickly physical therapist Maryanne Johnson.

MARCO Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam Quiet and thoughtful Navy SEAL Marco Santini doesn’t realize love is right under his nose, but once he does, nothing will stop him from capturing Alana Kailikea’s heart.

GIANNI Moody AFB PJ Gianni Santini finds the woman of his dreams the day before a deployment. When he returns, he has one mission on his mind, conquering professor Kianna Jones.

VICENTE Quantico MCB Vicente sees himself at the last Santini standing when he comes up close and personal with the one woman he has always loved, Jules Andrews. Now all he cares about is being that last man standing—as long as he’s her man.

Melissa Schroeder doesn’t disappoint as she continues to unleash her sexy Santini brothers on us. –Ms Romantic Reads

  23. I've only worked on a project that benefited the USO, and that was an honor in and of itself, so I'm beyond thrilled that you've decided to donate to the WWP. Anything for the troops :)

    What is your favorite thing about a military hero? My favorite thing is their bravery both in and out of the field. The courage it takes to admit to a weakness and allow someone, a strong heroine, to love and help them without making them feel weak. Their loyalty and dedication they apply to everything they do, their strong convictions, and last but not least, their physiques ;) I love a strong alpha hero who looks like he could snap you in half easily, but at the same time Lord help anyone who tries to hurt his woman. Thank you for the chance to win!

  24. So much to love about military heroes. Their honor is at the top of my list even though they can make stupid decisions in the name of honor (at times) ;). WWP is fabulous organization.

  25. many things I love about military heroes, their sense of honour, their strength, loyalty. My Father and brother were in the Navy, so I had a close up look in the lives of the military.

  26. A great series and a chance to help! What a great combination

    ReplyDelete
  27. My favorite thing about military heroes is their sense of honor and responsibility, and their ability to get the job done. They make great family men/women. My hubby was a nuke on submarines, my brother retired from the Air Force reserve after serving 20 years including 2 deployments to Iraq/Qatar, my dad was a belly gunner on B17s in the Army Air Corp in WWII and was awarded the Purple Heart, and my grandfather drove trucks in the Army in Europe in WWI. On my hubby's side, he has letters passed down that were written from family members who fought in the Civil War and the Revolutionary War. None of them glorify war, just understand their responsibilities. Thank you for the donations!

  28. Absolutely love this series!
    I am also an Army Brat! My Dad was career Army (25 years) and besides all the things that have been mentioned I can add integrity, respect, dedication and selflessness to what I think of when I think of the men and women who serve our country. Even after Dad retired he lived his life with these qualities up until his very last day! This is a wonderful cause, THANK YOU for your donations!!

  44. Mel,
    I FINALLY got a free moment to pop over here and tell you how much I appreciate your love of our troops. My Hubby is a Gulf War-Era U.S. Army vet and your books have really resonated with me.

    Continued blessings and success and may that beautiful home in Hawaii be part of your, not to distant, future!

What can I say about our military hero's I have lived with one for 19 years and I have a do love his dedication, loyalty, commitment to country and service and his love because with all that rolls into the most amazing man outside the uniform as well.

  54. I teach in a school system that serves an Army base. Not only do I respect what these men and women do for us, but I am amazed by their children. They are the bravest of all. The children of soldiers are some pretty awesome heroes and heroines too! Having one or both parents deployed and frequently moving around the country/world - much respect.

    What I love about military heroes is how capable they are. Their strength, loyalty, smarts - and dedication. They're protectors, and care about something bigger and more important than just themselves.

    How could someone not want that or enjoy reading about such a person in a romance, or in general? <3
