Talk about author love.... I loved this lady, even before I read her books. Trust me, you know it’s love, when the author gives you a book, and then you turn around and actually buy the book too.Today, I’m going to sit back and let the fabulous, amazingly talented, one of the nicest authors I have ever met take over Read Your Writes Book Reviews. Ladies and gentlemen, say hello to Melissa Cutler! BIG WAVE!!!!!Oh, wait... I should first introduce her, for those of you who don’t know her.
Melissa Cutler knows she has the best job in the world, dividing her time between her dual passions for writing sexy contemporary romances for Kensington Books and edge-of-your-seat romantic suspense for Harlequin. She was struck at an early age by an unrelenting travel bug and is probably planning her next vacation as you read this. When she's not globetrotting, she's enjoying Southern California's flip-flop wearing weather and wrangling two rambunctious kids.
Okay.... Now, I’m turning things over to Melissa. Hey Melissa!!!!!
A Commando's First ImpressionMelissa Cutler here and I'm thrilled to be on Read Your Writes Book Reviews to talk about my latest action adventure release, TEMPTED INTO DANGER. Thank you for hosting me, Kim! In the book, ICE black ops agent Diego Santero meets his match in math whiz Vanessa Crosby. Diego is one tough, gruff commando, but he doesn't have a way with words…or with the ladies.Initially, that's not a problem. When he and Vanessa first meet on the page, there's no time to talk. He's too busy saving her life by rescuing her from a bunch of really bad dudes. By the time he gets her safe enough to say anything at all, she's already watched him kill a man and he's already shielded her with his body while a bomb exploded. Finally—finally—he gets her to safety, rips the duct tape from her mouth, they look into each other's eyes, and his first words to her are…You didn't think I was actually going to tell you right here, did you? Let's just say it took me a lot of thinking and drafting to figure out exactly what this macho alpha warrior should say the first time he spoke to the woman he'd eventually fall in love with.I've brought an excerpt to share with you, and while it's not from Diego and Vanessa's very first conversation, I think you'll get the feel for the sizzling chemistry these two characters have throughout the story.Here's a scene to Tempt you:

Tempted into Danger deets:
When a simple mission to deliver the beautiful and brilliant Vanessa Crosby to a safe house goes horribly wrong, ICE agent Diego Santero’s life gets complicated. Keeping the anti-crime analyst safe from the notorious mercenaries after her program will put everything he’s worked for at risk. Relentlessly hunted and not knowing whom to trust, Diego takes Vanessa on the run, deep into the heart of the deadly Panamanian rainforest. Vanessa reminds herself that she’s just another asset to the ruggedly handsome black ops agent…until their intense situation leads to a release of passion neither expected. But even if they make it out alive, how can they ever have a future together?
