About the Author

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.

TJ Callahan has been assigned to work with TFH as their liaison with the FBI but he is actually going in undercover. He is not happy about this assignment and something is not right about it from the beginning. Charity Edwards is the forensic tech for TFH and apparently she is the one under investigation. These two connect from the beginning and are made for each other. Both are intelligent, geeky, savvy, comic-freaks who throw off sparks even when they shouldn't. TJ is sure she is innocent from the beginning and when Charity finds out he is investigating her she want to hurt him. What really happens is this ohana comes together and does what it does best and works well together. This book can be read as a standalone but why would you want to!

This series just keeps getting better! TFH has continued to be a family and continues to care for those that are close to them. So when one of their own becomes under the suspicion of the FBI, they band together and get to the truth. Charity Edwards is the TFH resident forensic expert and always worked alone. So when she came under the radar as someone who was being manipulated by one of FBI's most wanted criminals, FBI agent, TJ Callahan was put on the case to get close to the target. Who knew he would be drawn to everything about the woman. This story has twist, turns, adventure, and some danger. It is definitely one of those stories that you won't put down once you start. It also has all the characters from the previous books so you get to see what our other favorite characters are doing... Melissa Schroeder has definitely created a great series here and it keeps you wanting more!!!

This is an exciting romance set in Hawaii with fantastic colorful and living characters. From Charity, a strong and intelligent hacker extraordinaire for Task Force Hawaii; To TJ a sexy, cunning and clever FBI agent, down to the secondary characters, there is not a character you are not curious to find out more about. The story itself is well written and shows the author's talent right away drawing you in within the first few pages and keeping you enthralled from cover to cover. There is not a bit of wasted space in this book. The author does a beautiful job of showcasing the dynamics between all of the characters in the book. It was exciting to travel with the characters as they tried to find the villain of the story because there were plenty of twists to keep you on your toes and guessing. The only draw back was I don't want it to end, and that's not a complaint. For me that's the sign of a good book, and with this being a series I am sure there will be more adventures to come. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys an exciting romance, or simply a very well written book! Received a copy for an honest review.

5.0 Star Review Constant Craving (Task Force Hawaii #3) by Melissa Schroeder The Task Force Hawaii team works on a variety of cases in conjunction with local, state and federal agencies. This is book 3 in the series and I would recommend that you read the previous two books as situations are referenced from the previous two books in Constant Craving. I have found myself gravitating to the romantic suspense genre over the last 12 months or so. I thoroughly enjoy Ms. Schroeder’s writing style; not only does she bring the characters to life but at times I firmly believe that I am in Hawaii. I really enjoyed TJ Callahan and Charity Edwards’s story. Charity is a hard nut to crack, intelligent and an extremely talented hacker. When TJ is forced into going undercover again (a job he loathes), as the FBI liaison to the Task Force Hawaii Team, his target is initially Charity. What happens when he is instantly attracted to her? Will he let things slide, or will he do his job? What will happen when Charity finds out that she is his “assignment”? Charity is afraid to love and while she trusts TJ to protect her, can she trust in him enough to give him her heart? She may not have a choice as these two are really meant to be together; their chemistry is explosive. There are so many twists and turns to this book that I was riveted and stayed up late into the night. I couldn’t put it down. If you are looking for a book that is hot, spicy, romantic and suspenseful, then look no further. I anxiously await the next book in the Task Force Hawaii series.

WOW! The best of the series to date in my not so humble opinion. Constant Craving lets the geeks have their day and boy is it fun. Of course nothing is ever easy and the good things are worth fighting for. I just love this story. So much fun and the characters will keep you enthralled. While this can be read standalone you would probably enjoy it more if you’ve read the previous books: Seductive Reasoning (Task Force Hawaii, #1) and Hostile Desires (Task Force Hawaii, #2) .

Two tech geeks from different government agency come together to catch a murdering hacker. The hacker attaches himself to a lonely woman, slowly steals her money and kills them. The FBI thinks the suspect is Task Force Hawaii's very own Charity Edwards, the hacking genius. TJ is sent undercover to get close to Charity to solve these crimes, however he quickly realizes it's not her. Schroeder gives us a smart mystery and keeps us guessing with creative clues. If you are a comic book lover or just love the superhero movies you will appreciate the connections to their story. TJ and Charity click together pretty quickly and the book turns into a hot steamy romance, pretty obvious by the half naked man on the cover. In the third book of the series we get to revisit the other couples and see the difficulties of others. The books standalone with the crimes and murders but the friendships and romances that bloom are a continuing story line, I recommend reading them in order. I was given an advanced reader copy for my honest review, thanks Melissa!
