Rand's Craving is out!!

The next book in the continuing series Great Wolves of Passion Alaska is out.

Book 5, Rand's Craving, gets you one step closer to finding out what's going on in Passion.

Eve hasn’t spent much time with Rand outside of the bedroom. And definitely not alone. But, with the violence against the wolf population growing, they investigate the issues together. With each day out, they grow closer, but she knows Rand is holding something back.
Rand has wanted Eve since the first moment he scented her. He has held back some of his true sexual nature because he worries she might freak out. Spending more time with her is making it hard to ignore his baser needs. And he has to keep his head screwed on straight. He has to protect her not only from himself, but from the violent villain who now seems focused on destroying her.
NOTE! You are purchasing Siren's newest serialized imprint, the LoveXtreme Forever Series. This is the fifth book in the Great Wolves of Passion, Alaska collection. These books are not stand alone and must be read in the numbered order. Each book may end on a cliffhanger but usually with a happy-for-now for the heroine and one or more men. The final book contains a happily forever after for the heroine and all her men.

Coming out of the Kiera Closet

 I am Melissa Schroeder.  I figured some of you have already heard, but I figured I would post here too of course. I've been published for seven years, but for the first time really, I wanted to try my hand at shifters. Now, those of you who know me well understand that I like a challenge and I am kind of crazy. So, when I saw that Siren opened up a new line, LoveXtreme, I thought it would be perfect for a pack mentality. I chatted with the wonderful owner of Siren and she agreed to let me write under a pen name, Kiera West. Then, Passion, Alaska and the Dillon shifters were born.

I have had a wonderful time writing them. In fact, I have so many ideas planned for the Passion, Alaska Preserve, I cannot wait to find the time to write them. But now some of you understand that while I was writing as Kiera, I was also keeping up Melissa Schroeder's schedule, which was loaded. As of right now, I have written 9 novels, novellas and short stories this year. Jason's Salvation will be number 10. Before the year is out, I should write 4-5 more books under both my names.

Kiera is going to stay with Siren as an exclusive name. So for those Kiera fans out there, make sure to keep your eyes peeled at Bookstrand for my books. I have a lot planned for the coming months including more shifters and another series set in Montana.

If you haven't checked out my Melissa Schroeder books, please do. I have a load of them out there, including my newest release, The Last Detail!

Rand's Craving

Just found out that Rand will be coming out this November, woo hoo. To keep you up with the series, this is Book Five. Of course, that is tentative. Book Six, Jason's Salvation, will be turned in this week so I am crossing fingers for a December release!

Updates and more

I have been so super busy. I have turned in Rand's Craving and should be turning in Jason's Salvation by the beginning of the week. I hope to hear really soon about both of those. I also want to give you a heads up on some other stuff. Many of you met the bears in the last book, Convincing Ethan. You see much more of them Shane's Need, and I promise, there will be a couple books about them. They will not be LoveXtremes, just to warn you. Now, the meet those guys in Shane's book and there is even more of them from now on, will probably end up being a serial book.

I am also starting to plot my first book in the Cherish, Montana series, Loving Lanie. This is just a straight menage contemporary, no shifters, but I thought it would be fun to play with three former Marines who decide to "help" their deceased friend's sister, Lanie, run her ranch. I am already loving the characters as I think about them, so I think the book will be a lot of fun.
Wednesday, July 27, 2011


Well, hey, I am jumping on to let you know that Shane's Need will be out September 19th, tentatively. I don't see an issue with it right now, but there is still some jostling with the schedule. Also, for Kindle readers, CONVINCING ETHAN is now on Amazon!

Crawling out of the rumble

Hey, folks. I know it has been a long time and I do apologize. I fell ill this winter, as did my youngest, with bronchitis, the viral kind. That put me way behind in writing while we both tried to recover. But, I am happy to say I am back on track.  Hopefully, I will be turning in Shane's Need sometime late next week, then Rand's Craving sometime in the next 10 days after that. That will get me a little ahead to turn in one book every month once I get  going and there will be regular releases.
I want to thank everyone for being so supportive and all the kind words about my work. Now, back to work.

The Alpha's Fall is up for Preorder!

Just thought I would let you all know that The Alpha's Fall, the next book in the Great Wolves of Passion, Alaska is now up for preorder! I know a lot of people don't preorder all the time, but it does help newer authors from what I understand. It gets up the list faster and puts our names in front of people who might not have looked at us twice. Or at least, that is what I have been told, lol.
This time Siren has the short excerpt up already so you can see a tiny little bit:)

First Review Site Review!

Woo hoo! I got my first ever review site review from Whipped Cream Reviews. Honeysuckle gave it 4.5 CHERRIES. Here is a little bit of what she said:
If you love shifter/mate books you will want to read this first book in Ms. West’s series. This reviewer is waiting (rather impatiently) for book two. If it’s anywhere as explosive and exciting as book one it will be well worth the wait! 
You can read more at WHIPPED CREAM!

It's Release Day!!!!!

Yay, I thought today would never get here! I am excited that readers are going to get to meet Eve and her Dillon men. When I came up with the idea, I wasn't sure if I would be able to do it. I have never really written wolves, but this idea would not go away. The Siren LoveXtreme Forever Series books tells the story over several books. The way mine is set up is that you get to meet all the characters in book one, Seducing Their Mate. Then Eve and Noah's love story will be released in March (The Alpha's Fall). Each Dillon man will have his own book where readers get to experience his story with Eve. It has been so much fun to do and I hope the readers like it:) Check out the coming Titles on my Great Wolves of Passion, Alaska Page here on the site.
Make sure to check out the EXCERPT and remember, it is 10% off right now on Bookstrand. Yes you can buy for your Kindle on Bookstrand, it has that option.
Sunday, February 6, 2011


WOW, I can't believe that tomorrow Seducing Their Mate will be out! I am busy working on my edits for The Alpha's Fall and finishing up Convincing Ethan, books two and three of the series. I am biting my fingernails though because I hope everyone likes the series. But, to celebrate, maybe we need a gorgeous hunk.

Strand Town

I am really excited about this. Strand Town is the brain child of Diana DeBalko, the owner of Siren Publishing. I LOVE IT. It is really cool. I know there isn't much to check out right now, but there soon will be, including Passion, Alaska! Keep an eye out for that and The Strand Pub. It looks like we will have a cool place to hang out with our readers.

Excerpt: Seducing Their Mate

I wanted to share a bit of Seducing Their Mate which will release on Monday! It has already made the top 100 list on Bookstrand so I am super excited. The Great Wolves of Passion, Alaska tells the tale of six cousins who have found their mate. It is part of a the Xtreme line which features one woman with five or more guys. Mine is part of their Xtreme Forever Series which is a serial series spread out over several books. The story of Eve and her wolves will be told through the 8 books, with each cousin having their own book with Eve:) There is a thread of suspense throughout the whole series also. Here is the blurb and a tidbit from the first book:

Seducing Their Mate
Preorder at Bookstrand
On Sale Monday Feb 7, 2011


Scientist and veterinarian Eve MacMillan loves wolves. She’s been studying them most her life. When she gets the opportunity to study on a private reserve in Alaska, she jumps at the chance. Four months into her year of research, she is as fascinated with the Dillon cousins as she is her wolves.
All six Dillon cousins know that she is their mate. And for four long months they have waited to take the final step. After their Alpha, Noah, seduces her, they tell her they want to share her. Overwhelmed by the passion they inspire, Eve lets her inhibitions dissolve.
Then an unknown enemy ramps up his attacks, and Eve discovers her lovers are more than just men when one of the pack is left fighting for his life.
A Siren Erotic Romance


Without hesitation, he pulled back, and his hands went to the bottom of her sweater. She said nothing as he pulled the heavy fabric over her head. He growled in irritation when he saw the long underwear top. It made sense since it was the middle of winter. The beast in him, though, wanted to see her skin. He apparently waited too long to pull the shirt off.
“Noah,” she said, her hands settling on top of his.
He glanced up at her. “What?” He almost growled the question.
“We can’t do this here.”
“Why not?”
Her face brightened, her ivory skin staining a delicious shade of pink.
“Your brothers. They know.”
Shit. He didn’t give a damn about his brother and cousins. They weren’t the ones who found her. They could wait. But from the serious expression on her face, this was not going to be easily explained away.
He opened his mouth, but she said, “Can’t we at least go to your bedroom?”
The reprieve sent a tremor of excitement through his blood as he felt his inner wolf stir. He was going to have his woman, their woman. It was as it should be, and the other situation could wait until morning. Or afternoon. Or, maybe next week. He grabbed her by the hand and all but dragged her to the bedroom. She came willingly, but she was a small woman, and it was hard to keep up with his strides.
Once there, he slammed the door shut behind them, locked it, and then crowded her up against it. Lust crawled through him, was taking over his better senses. As someone who considered himself a Dom, he usually had complete control over his libido. But he could smell her. The scent of her had driven him crazy for months, but now, she was aroused, willing. His response was primal, so deep down in his blood that he couldn’t deny it.
Eve opened her mouth to say something, but he slammed his lips down on hers. He needed that connection, the taste of her. His cock pulsed with need. Need to have her, to take her, to own her body.
She didn’t resist. Her mouth opened immediately, her tongue sliding against his. Her moves weren’t innocent, but he knew she wasn’t as experienced as he was. Somewhere in the back of his mind, he knew he should be moving slower, that he shouldn’t rush it. But he needed to mark her, not only for himself, but for the pack.
He moved closer, pressing his groin against her pussy. Even through their clothing, he could feel her wet heat. He growled thinking of just how it would feel to sink into her, feel those tight muscles clasp around him.
She slipped her arm over his shoulders, her fingers threading through his hair. Her breasts pressed against his chest.
He couldn’t stand it anymore. He pulled away and dragged her with him, still kissing her. He walked her to the bed. She fell with a laugh, and he followed her down, swallowing the joyous sound as he kissed her again.
He tore his mouth away to kiss down her neck and started working her shirt free. He wanted her nude. It had been an obsession of his to feel all that soft ivory skin against his. She wasn’t wearing a bra.
Her breasts were gorgeous. He had always gone for full-chested women. She was small, petite, but so fucking beautiful. Her nipples were pink berries against her pure skin.
She moved her hands up to cover them, but he grabbed them and snarled. He couldn’t help it. In this, he wanted honesty. And he wanted her to know not to hide herself. Why a woman with such a gorgeous body would think she had to cover herself, he didn’t know. But he planned on making sure she never had a reason to be embarrassed of her nudity again.
He lowered his head and took one sweet nipple into his mouth as he palmed the other one. They were hard, tight buds. She moaned and, once he released her wrists, moved her hands up to his head. Soon, though, he knew it wouldn’t be enough. He kissed his way down her body, enjoying the way her stomach muscles quivered as he moved his mouth over them.
He dragged off her pants and sighed with contentment when he saw the little black lace panty covering her mound. He grabbed the top of them with his teeth and pulled them down her legs, the scent of her filling the air around him. She was definitely aroused, more so than he expected. He tossed the panties on the floor behind him, and when he looked down at her, he decided to make sure to destroy every panty she had. Jesus.
Seeing her completely naked, her red curls damp with desire, her alabaster skin so pure he was worried he would mar it just by touching her.
He slipped his hands up her legs then spread her thighs further apart. Her pussy lips were drenched, her clit hard and throbbing.
He could hear the embarrassment in her voice. He glanced up at her and realized the need to establish just what he expected from her. Being part wolf made all of them very sensual, and it was something she would just have to get accustomed to it.  
He captured her gaze and leaned forward. He touched the tip of his tongue to her and gave her cunt one long, leisurely lick. Her breathing hitched, and she bit down on her bottom lip. She closed her eyes and moaned. His name.
He pulled her clit into his mouth, grazing his teeth over the hardened nub before pulling it into his mouth. The taste of her was the sweetest nectar that he’d ever had. She pulled her legs up, planting her feet on the mattress. Anticipation surged. Her scent grew stronger, overpowering. Inside, his wolf howled with delight. He never worried about her sensuality, but he knew a few of the others had. They knew she was their mate, but they had wondered if someone so repressed could give what they needed to them.
She was shivering with desire, but it wasn’t enough for him. He wanted her begging, pleading him to take her. He wanted to conquer her.
