About Melinda... 

Amazon bestselling author Melinda Di Lorenzo writes in her spare time - at soccer practices, when she should be doing laundry, and in place of sleep. She lives on the beautiful west coast of British Columbia, Canada, with her handsome husband and her noisy kids. When she's not writing, she can be found curled up with (someone else's) good book.

Heidi Bluthe is Miss Anonymous—queen of a confident, snark-laced advice column. Too bad she can’t take her own advice to fix the hot mess reality of her life. When one of her readers shows up claiming her advice ruined his life and demands she fix it, Heidi agrees to try. She is, after all, a professional and helping him will help further her career. But what happens next, falling hard for sexy British charmer, William, really knocks them both for a loop.

A year ago, William Rutherford was living the dream. Beautiful fiancée. Perfect home in the suburbs. All that changed in an instant. And the advice Miss Anonymous—aka, Heidi Bluthe–gave might not have been the root cause, but it was certainly the shove that sent things over the edge. William’s determined to have her set things right, even if that means unexpectedly risking his heart in the process…

Desire never takes time off . . .   

Six foot two. Lips to die for. And boy, can the man fill out a suit. The gorgeous stranger sending Aysia Banks steamy looks from across the bar is the perfect way for her to take her mind off her high-stress job, and maybe even forget about her ex. An invitation to dance leads to a smoldering night, which turns into a weekend of uninhibited, toe-curling, blow-your-mind passion. Things are starting to look up for Aysia—until Monday morning . . .

Another city, another company to save. It’s nothing new to executive Marcelo Diaz, who’s used to calling the shots and getting what he wants. But what is different, is Aysia: the vixen he spent the weekend rewriting the entire playbook with. But before Marc can take things any further he’s shocked by what he discovers . . .

Marc was hired to keep his employer’s reputation squeaky clean.

Part of Aysia’s job is to enforce her department’s strict no-dating rule.

And they work for the same company.

Now, with their red-hot connection doused by office policies and politics, Aysia and Marc try to put their fling behind them. It should be easy. But when a behind-the-scenes power play threatens their careers, they’ll have to bring their hearts to the table . . .

He lives by the law. 

 She’s dodging death at every turn. 

Craving closure from the blaze that took her father and her memory, Nadine Stuart returns home hoping to find peace. But the nightmare begins and the only thing that saves her from being pulled into the inferno is Anderson Somers’ determination to protect her. The undercover detective’s hot on the heels of a killer — and every instinct tells him Nadine will be the next victim.


 Let's Talk... 

AVRIL: First things first – hit us with your New Year resolutions! 
MELINDA: I actually don't DO resolutions. Don't get me wrong...I'm in favour of fresh starts and new beginnings. But I always have so much stuff going on in January that a resolution would definitely fail. 

AVRIL: Can you give us a run down on each of the series? 
MELINDA: After Hours is book one in my Business or Pleasure duet. The series is perfect for those who prefer things...spicy. Black panties and back alleys and no holds barred, oh my. If you're looking for non-stop heat, ramped up tension, and strong heroines, you've come to the right place. Each book can be read on its own. 

Unsolicited Advice is book three in my Between The Sheets trilogy. All three book in the series are RomComs, full of heart and humor.  My favourite thing about this book, in particular, is my very swoon worthy British hero. All of the book are standalone novels, with the commonality being the magazine where the heroines work. 

Undercover Protector is book two in my four-book Harlequin Romantic Suspense series. This series is aptly named Undercover Justice, and it follows four brothers-in-arms who are seeking to put their fathers' murderer behind bars. Each book has a complete HEA, but there is an over-arcing story, too. 

AVRIL: How far ahead to do you plan your writing schedule? 
MELINDA: I set my schedule deadline to deadline.  

AVRIL: What’s on your TBR list? 
MELINDA: I don't usually read while I'm writing. On my next break, I'll be reading Ruth Ware's In A Dark, Dark Wood, and a YA called Learning Seventeen by Brooke Carter.

We'd love to hear what's on your TBR list!
