Meet Melanie Moreland

New York Times/USA Today bestselling author Melanie Moreland, lives a happy and content life in a quiet area of Ontario with her beloved husband of thirty-plus years and their rescue cat, Amber. Nothing means more to her than her friends and family, and she cherishes every moment spent with them.

While seriously addicted to coffee, and highly challenged with all things computer-related and technical, she relishes baking, cooking, and trying new recipes for people to sample. She loves to throw dinner parties, and also enjoys traveling, here and abroad, but finds coming home is always the best part of any trip.

Melanie loves stories, especially paired with a good wine, and enjoys skydiving (free falling over a fleck of dust) extreme snowboarding (falling down stairs) and piloting her own helicopter (tripping over her own feet.) She's learned happily ever afters, even bumpy ones, are all in how you tell the story.

A woman working in a male-dominated field.

Harvest of Love

Danica Rawlins

She’s a career woman, constantly busy, under pressure, and in demand. But the job that once seemed like a dream to her now feels more like a nightmare.

When the stress gets too much, she escapes the office and drives, discovering beauty in the wide-open spaces that surround her in the country. Leaving the worries behind, if only temporarily.

The last thing she expected to find was him.

 

Noah Edwards

He left the big city behind him long ago and forged a different path. One of earth and sky instead of steel and smog. Acres of plants instead of thousands of people.

The day she stumbled into his life, everything changed.

He saw his former life in her.

And when he looked in her eyes, he saw his future.

He was determined to save her.

Show her a life she never dreamed existed—and a love that would enrich them both.

Review: Finding Ronan's Heart

Finding Ronan's Heart Finding Ronan's Heart by Melanie Moreland
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Hero with Heart as big as his size

In a world of romance where alpha men and powerful redeemable heroes seem to rock the pages, sometimes a reader needs a bit of a nonshowy hero. A man who isn't always right, maybe has a flaw - a man who keeps it real. Ronan Callaghan is just that hero.

Ohhh don't you be worrying your head over but...I like my possesive alpha men. Thats the perfection of the writing in this story. He has the biggest heart, but protective of what is his.

“I decided right then streetlights were just as romantic as moonlight. Especially if the man kissing me was Ronan.”


Yup that is the sound of my heart swooning.

Beth is a relatable heroine. No OTT antics. Or sad Sally here. Just a strong, independent heroine is looking to give the best for her and her brother. My favorite kind of heroine who I can see being BFF with.

Things that I love:
- story development touching on the power of all types of love.
- kids are scene stealers and some of the best ones
- balance of sexual tension that makes you burn
- all the stuff before this

Things to consider:
- is part of a series but not necessary. This is easily and entrance point into the magic of this world.

Melanie Moreland serves up some of the best in contempory romance. Okay I am trying not to be biased but cant help myself- for me she is the best hitting the checkboxes in what i am looking for. Hopeful, heartful and romantic. I am going to be thinking about this couple for a long while.

PS: Excited for Liam & Paige. Yeah I get it - we’ve seen the story. But through Beth & Ronan’s eyes. I am tickled pink we get to have the curtain pulled back to see their side. Thank you readers for asking for more!!

EXCERPT


“Jesus, you’re sexy.” I spoke without thinking.

“Me?” she asked, sounding incredulous.

“Yes. Your curls, your curves, your smile. You’re so beautiful, and you have no idea, which makes you even more so in my books.”

She blinked, looking startled. “I had no idea you felt that way.”

I leaned forward, taking her glass from her fingers, setting it on the table, then dragging her onto my lap. I covered her mouth with mine and kissed her. I plunged one hand into her curls I loved so much, smoothing the silky strands between my fingers, and used my other arm to hold her tight. She opened for me, and I explored her, the crisp taste of the wine still lingering on her tongue. I only meant to kiss her once and let her return to her corner, but now that I had her in my arms, I didn’t want to let her go. I kissed her harder, delving my tongue into her mouth and finding all the sweet ridges, the smoothness of her teeth, the velvet feel of her tongue in my quest. She returned my caresses with enthusiasm, pressing herself closer, her legs splaying over mine so she straddled me. She wove her fingers into my hair, tugging and pulling, teasing the nape of my neck, making me hiss in pleasure. I was hard with desire for her, and I let her feel it. I wanted her to know how much she turned me on. When our mouths separated, I dragged my lips to her ear, after worshiping the smooth skin of her cheek and neck. “Beautiful,” I stated firmly.

She blinked at me, her dark eyes wide in her face. “I think you’re the sexiest man I have ever seen.” She ran her hands over my arms. “I have never met anyone like you. So strong and masculine, yet so sweet and amazing.” She swallowed. “You make me feel safe, Ronan.”

“You are always safe with me. Always.”

She bit her lip, glancing down between us. “You’re, ah, large everywhere.”

I chuckled. “All to make you smile, little bird.”

“Well, you do that just fine,” she responded.

Must Read Trilogy: The Amazing Falling Trilogy by Maya Hughes



BINGE THE TRILOGY

Amazon Exclusive https://amzn.to/32aAA9g
Read for FREE with Kindle Unlimited

 



🎶 ABOUT 🎶


The Falling Trilogy is a Fulton U Universe sports romance spinoff.


I don’t deserve her forgiveness, but I can’t stop myself from fighting for it.


Bay Logan ran from me four years ago and I can’t blame her. I broke her heart and my own with one split second mistake.


If I were a better guy, I’d walk away and let her live her life, but maybe I haven’t learned my lesson yet because I can’t stop thinking about her. And I won’t stop until she knows how much I still love her.


WHAT READERS ARE SAYING!

“Maya outdid herself and wrote a messy but beautiful love story.” - Jess, Goodreads


“This trilogy is beyond amazing! I loved the heart break which made me cry with them and then the joy when Bay and Keyton finally got it right.” - Read.Review.Repeat

“The love between these two is undeniable. It’s a palpable connection that reaches through the pages and touches the reader’s heart.” - Royal Blue Romance





🏈 EXCERPT🏈


Kissing her was a mistake. It was supposed to be the period at the end of the sentence, closing the book on this attraction between us. I’d thought maybe she’d slap me or shove me away. 

Instead, she’d met my lips with her own uncontainable desire. I’d pressed my hand against the small of her back and held her face to mine. Staring into her eyes, I knew it wasn’t the end of anything. 

I’d dropped a lit match into a warehouse of fireworks, and all I had was a garden hose to fight this fire.






AUTHOR BIO

 

Maya Hughes, that's me!, can often be found sneaking in another chapter while hiding in the bathroom from her kids! :-) I'm a romance writer who loves taking inspiration from everyday life, namely my husband and biggest fan. Inspiration also strikes when I hear a song, meet someone new or daydream while at soccer practice.

 

I love writing stories that capture the possibilities of the paths less travelled and enjoy experiencing life through my characters’ eyes.

 

I'm the mom of three little ones, the wife to an amazing husband and also work full time. Some of my favorite things are cupcakes, cinnamon rolls, white wine, laughing until I can't breathe, traveling with my family and Jeff Goldblum.
