Get USA Today Bestselling Author Melissa Schroeder's FIRST military series, A Little Harmless Military Romance!

To prove her love and save her man, she has to go above and beyond the call of duty.

Infatuation: A Little Military Harmless Romance

Francis McKade is a man in lust. He’s had a crush on his best friend’s little sister for years but he has never acted on it. Besides that fact that she’s Malachi’s sister, he’s a Seal and he learned his lesson with his ex-fiancé. Women do not like being left alone for long months at a time. Still, at a wedding in Hawaii anything can happen—and does. Unfortunately, after the best night of his life, he and Mal are called away to one of their most dangerous missions.

Shannon is blown over by Kade. She’s always had a crush on him and after their night together, it starts to feel a little like love. But, after the mission, Kade never calls or writes and she starts to wonder if it was all a dream. Until one night, her brother Mal drags him into her bar and grill and Shannon gets the shock of her life.

Kade isn’t the man Shannon knew in Hawaii, or even the last few years. Losing a friend and being injured, especially one who had never felt so vulnerable. He still can’t shake the terror that keeps him up at night. Worse, he is realizing that the career he loves just might be over.

Shannon is still mad, but she can’t help but hurt for the man she loves. He is darker, a bit more dangerous, but beneath that, he is the Kade she's known for so many years. When he pushes her to her limits in the bedroom, Shannon refuses to back down. One way or another, this military man is going to learn there is no walking away from love—not while she still has breath in her body.

Warning: This book contains two infatuated lovers, a hard-headed military man, a determined woman, some old friends, and a little taste of New Orleans. Of course, there is a Dom who wants to be in a charge and a sub who wants to challenge him. As always, ice water is suggested while reading. It might be the first military Harmless book, but the only thing that has changed is how hot our hero looks in his uniform—not to mention out of it.

This is an original novella that is approx 32,000 words. It is an interracial military romance with light bdsm.Get USA Today Bestselling Author Melissa Schroeder's

This is my first time reading a book by Melissa Schroeder and it won't be my last. Infatuation pulled me in from start to finish. Kade is one sexy hero who is "crushing" on his best friend's sister. What Kade doesn't know is that the feeling is mutual. Shannon has been lusting after the handsome SEAL for a while and decides that now is the time to finally make her move. After a sinfully sexy and hot tumble between the sheets, Kade is called away on a mission. A couple of months later, he returns; battered and broken. Shannon's feelings for Kade have not gone away but she's not to sure that he feels the same for her.

Infatuation is not only a hot and sexy read but it's very emotional. Even though it's not a full-length novel, the characters and plots are well-developed. Growing up around SEALS, Shannon knows how to stand on her own. She knows the danger that her brother and his friends face when they leave. She keeps the home fires burning, so to speak, where they have somewhere to rest, recuperate and relax when they are in town.

After returning from his mission, Kade is in limbo. He's not sure where he's headed next but he does know that he misses Shannon terribly even though he has nothing to offer her. He's dealing with an injury and PTSD. But Kade doesn't give Shannon a lot of credit. She is strong. And he realizes that he can lean on her as he works his way back to health.

I loved each character, especially Deke, also known as "Chief." His book is next and I can't wait! Infatuation has the perfect combination of emotion, humor and smexy times. I will definitely be reading more by Melissa Schroeder.

5.0 out of 5 stars HOT Infatuation 14 August 2012
By Kathy L - Published on

This is one beautiful, sexy, emotional and HOT story. Melissa did an absolutely fabulous job. Francis "Kade" McKade is one hot and sexy seal and he is in love with Malachi Dupree's sister, Shannon Dupree. She owns a bar in New Orleans and heads out to Hawaii for her big brother's wedding. While there she sees Kade again and she just goes weak in the knees for him. She decides to take matters into her hands and give Kade an invite not knowing when she would see him again.

Melissa had me emotionally invested in this story. I couldn't stop the tears from flowing. To see a tormented sole in Kade and watching Shannon try to give him what he needs without asking him for more, was very emotionally draining. This was a beautiful story filled with everything a girl could ask for: a sexy military man, beautiful locations and a little BDSM. This was great and I'm off to read about Deke.

Infatuation was a sexy fast pace read about a Navy Seal in need of some TLC from the women he has secretly loved for 5yrs. This is a familiar theme, H in love with his best friends little sister but never acts on his desires always believing there is something about him that makes him not worthy of her love. What kicks this sorry a notch above the norm is the H/h. Kade is a man of action but there are also deep depths to his character. He is also a Dom, the strong silent type, some might even say he is withdrawn in social settings ,but he is fully aware of what is happening around him. Shannon is the spark to his flame, she is sassy, outgoing, and knows how to tame the savage inner beast of her man. From the moment her brother brought Kade home in between missions she has been stuck on Kade, but afraid to make a move in fear of rejection. All of that changes while at a mutual friends wedding, they will hook-up for a night of passion. The next morning Kade is called out on a mission and Shannon returns home to New Orleans. Let the games begin in the romance between Kade and Shannon. How will she deal with the shell of a man that returns to her and will Kade loose the love of his life to PTSD.

Infatuation had many light moments but in essence it dealt with a heavy subject,what it means to love someone in active duty, every mission is highly stressful and very dangerous. More than anyone I would think those guys need love but how do they go about getting it knowing the potential heartache involved. And what type of women could deal with the constant not knowing if today is the day they get that Call. I loved the interaction between Kade and Shannon she was a worthy mate to his he-man tactics. She had a lot of moxie, but knew when to back down and when to apply the screws. The sex was hot and I enjoyed how Kade initiated Shannon into his Dom lifestyle. I will definitely be reading the next book in the series.

Awesome novella in the Harmless series.

Kade is the quiet hot guy in the corner. The quiet ones tend to be the most trouble, right? Yes! And the ones most worth it in the end. Shannon is his best friend and fellow Navy Seals sister. Kade is determined to stay away from her out of respect for her brother. He fails.

Shannon decides that after all these years she is going to take what she wants, and she wants Kade.

They share their one night of complete and total passion and the next day Kade is off on his next mission.

Then the pivotal point happens. Kade is injured during his mission and decides that he is no longer fit for to be with Shannon. He thinks she deserves better. Ah, the perfect conflict, and when he shows up in town four months later she is having none of that. Its always amazing to watch two people who love each other fight that love with irrational excuses and walls that don't really need to be there. All in all, they get their happy ending, but its not without the bumps and pain that go along with conquering such things. When they finally get out of their own damn way, the magic happens.

Loved this story and as always I cannot wait for the next installment.
