Review by Maimeo's Angels: Seductive Reasoning by Melissa Schroeder

Join Melissa Schroeder for a new Harmless spinoff series filled with suspense, hot men, and breathtaking romance.


Even paradise has a dark side…

Working with local, state, and federal agencies, the men and women of TASK FORCE HAWAII work on cases ranging from bank heists to terrorism. A diverse team filled with ex-military, law enforcement, medical, and technical support, they are Hawaii’s last defense against the worst criminals.


Resisting her might just kill him.

Former Army Special Forces Officer Martin “Del” Delano has enough on his hands chasing a serial killer and heading up TASK FORCE HAWAII. He definitely doesn’t need the distraction of Emma Mitchell. From the moment they meet, she knocks him off his feet, literally. Unfortunately, she’s the best person to have on the team to make the connections to help them catch their killer.

A temptation she can’t ignore.

For Emma, it’s hard to ignore the lure of a man like him. Tats, muscles and his Harley cause her to have more than a few fantasies about Del. He’d never be interested in a geek like her, but she can’t resist toying with him. When she pushes the teasing too far, she ends up in his bed. She convinces herself she can handle it until the moment he steals her heart.

A killer obsessed.

Del can’t help falling for the quirky genius. She’s smart, funny and there’s a sweet vulnerable side to her that only he can see. As Emma gets more involved with the investigation, she becomes the target of the psychopath. When the danger escalates, Del promises to do anything to save the woman who not only captured his heart but also his soul.

5.0 Star 

I received this book in exchange for an honest review. 
Melissa Schroeder is an automatic purchase for me and I was extremely excited to find out that she has created a new Harmless spin off series.
The Task Force Hawaii team works on a variety of cases in conjunction with local, state and federal agencies. 
The first book in the series is all about Martin “Del” Delano, a former Army Special Forces Officer, who heads up the Task Force Hawaii team. He and his team are on the hunt for a serial killer and Emma Mitchell is the genius who is contracted to the team to assist them.
Their attraction is mutual, despite Del’s best efforts to ignore his feelings and they eventually give in to their desires.  Del and Emma’s chemistry is off the charts; sizzling and hot.
However, no one counted on the serial killer fixating and targeting Emma. Will Del and his team be able to save Emma in time?
This book is in the romantic suspense genre and I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know these 
characters.  With fast paced action and a thrilling story line you cannot help but be drawn into the world created by Melissa Schroeder.   
I was equally enthralled with the supporting cast of characters and cannot wait to read their stories as I was with Del and Emma.
This book is exactly what I have come to expect from Melissa Schroeder, well written and thoroughly enjoyable. I anxiously await the next book in the Task Force Hawaii series.
If you are looking for a book that is hot, spicy, romantic and suspenseful, then look no further. 
Congratulations Ms. Schroeder, you have a winning series on your hands and I highly recommend both you and this book.

Born to an Air Force family at an Army hospital, USA TODAY Bestselling author Melissa Schroeder has always been a little bit screwy. She was further warped by her years of watching Monty Python and her strange family. Her love of romance novels developed after accidentally picking up a Linda Howard book. From then on, she was hooked. She read close to 300 novels in one year and decided romance was her true calling instead of the literary short stories and suspense stories she had been writing. After many attempts, she realized that romantic comedy, or at least romance with a comedic edge, was where she was destined to be. 

Influences in her writing come from Nora Roberts, Jenny Crusie, Susan Andersen, Amanda Quick, Jayne Anne Krentz, Julia Quinn, Christina Dodd, and Lori Foster. Since her first release in 2004, Melissa has written close to thirty short stories, novellas and novels released with seven different publishers in a variety of genres and time periods. Those releases included a 2005 Eppie Finalist, Two Capa finalists, and an International ebook best seller in June of 2005. Surrender was named top Category Romance by Authors After Dark, and she was named Author of the Year and Most Accessible Author.

Since she was a military brat, she vowed never to marry military. Alas, fate always has her way with mortals. Her husband is an Air Force major, and together they have their own military brats, two girls, and an adopted dog-daughter. They live wherever the military sticks them, which, she is sure, will always involve heat and bugs only seen on the Animal Discovery Channel. In her spare time, she reads, complains about bugs, travels, cooks, reads some more, watches her DVD collections of Arrested Development and Seinfeld, and tries to convince her family that she truly is a delicate genius. She has yet to achieve her last goal.
She has always believed that romance and humor go hand in hand. Love can conquer all and as Mark Twain said, "Against the assault of laughter, nothing can stand." Combining the two, she hopes she gives her readers a thrilling love story, filled with chuckles along the way, and a happily ever after.
