A Little Harmless Pleasure by Melissa SCHROEDER

A night of forbidden pleasures leads to more than either of them expected.
Cynthia Myers meets Chris Dupree at her former fiancé's wedding. After a little dancing, and champagne, she ends up back in Chris's hotel room. For one night of down and dirty sex. That's it, that's all. He lives far away, and she has other things to do... like get a life.

Chris is a switch. He likes to dominate but he also likes to play the role of a submissive from time to time. His last relationship with a sub turned nasty and since then, he has shied away from anything but straight vanilla sex. When he meets Cynthia, he finds a woman who could change his mind. His mate. The only problem is he has to convince her.

In a carefully orchestrated seduction, Chris teaches Cynthia about submission and dominance, allowing her to take the reins. As he leads her through pleasures she thought she'd never experience, Cynthia's self confidence soars and she finds herself falling in love with him. But, when he asks for submission in the bedroom, can she surrender to prove her love or was it all about a little harmless pleasure?

» WARNING: The following book contains: Lots of sex, of course; bondage and submission done in a tasteful but wonderfully arousing way, propositions from a drunken woman, hot phone sex, southern accents, Hawaiian scenery, and OH MY, a m/f/m ménage that will send tingles all the way to your toes, along with other various body parts. A glass of ice-cold water for refreshment is recommended while reading.

This is a reissue.

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.

Starts a bit slow but then picks up at high speed. An exciting romance story with a wide variety of erotica. Interesting events towards the end. A must read. So different from other erotic books I've read. Couldn't put the book down. Very creative story.

I couldn't put the book down! (well my nook since I got the ebook) Great romance and erotica! Cynthia a stuck up snob finally puts her stuck up family behind to live life Ann turns her into a woman and not some woman with her nose turned up, working for the 1st time in her life at Ann's bakery (from book 1 A Little Harmless Sex) to earn a living making great goodies and to fall for one hunk of a man! I loved it and I think you will too!

This book's steam had me sweating. Love the dichotomy of submission and dominance. The author took me on an emotional rollercoaster that had me turning page after page. If you like BDSM play, you'll love this book.

Great read for a very erotic fantasy getaway, very easy read. The love scenes had me so focused that I almost forgot that there was a plot to the story lol!

The book came to my attention while I was looking for other books; and I am glad it did. While it is not a full blown dive into the "life style" as it is referred to by those into BDSM, it is a nice easy look into that world and how it can be. Anyone who is offended by the idea of someone being bound and dominated, or someone acting like a submissive and being shared between multiple partners need not consider this book. This is not a "vanilla" read. It is going to upset some people; mainly those easily offended. This book is an easy and enjoyable read. The characters are believable and enjoyable. The interactions are at times amazing. I am going to have to get the other books in this set now. I highly recommend it for those with open minds who enjoy romance with a little more. For those of you easy to offend "Vanilla" types, do not bother; this book will likely offend. That, or it will awaken things in you that bother you and excite you at the same time, just as happens to Cynthia.

Coninuation from "A Little Harmless Sex" with excellent lead into new story. The main character's role in this book was not expected from picture depicted in "A Little Harmless Sex."

If you long for something more than a touch of "vanilla" in your sex life, this book will fuel that longing. Very sexy with vulnerable yet powerful characters. Loved it!

Reviewer: Jen Series: Harmless (#2) Release Date: December 29th, 2008 Publisher: Samhain Page Count: 232 Source: Provided by author for review This is book 2 in Melissa's Harmless series. Cynthia was engaged to Max in book 1 and Chris is Max's best friend. This book opens with Max and Anna's wedding and Cynthia having just a little too much champagne after standing up to her father to attend the wedding. Cynthia decides she wants to rebel by having a one night stand with someone that her father would disapprove of, and Chris is the lucky guy. Fair warning, this book does some exploring of Dominant/submissive relationship. Chris is a switch (meaning he enjoys playing both roles, which evidently is not common) and is looking for a mate who has similar interests and feels he's found that in Cynthia... but first he has to introduce her to the lifestyle. The thing I enjoyed most about this book is watching Cynthia come out of her shell and grow from a debutant, bred to do what her parents ask of her to a woman confident in herself and her sexuality. Let's face it, Cynthia was a biotch in the first book; so to see her mature and come into her own was quite rewarding. I'm very much forward to seeing where the next books in the series are going to go. And Melissa has written a free short story as an epilogue, A Harmless Little Kalikimaka.

I didnt reallu enjoy this book...it was way overpriced to be a four hundred page ebook. The characters were weak and so was the sex...ive read books about bsdm that were way better. This book was weak and i wont be continuing the series...i do however recommend the first book of the series A Little Harmless Sex

A Dom would NEVER allow any other man to touch his sub... let alone join in. It would not happen. Don't know where this idea came from, but it's complete trash. I know a couple of people in the lifestyle and they all said exactly the same thing... No Dom would ever share his sub with another Dom. Absolutely no way it would happen. Turned what might have been a good book into a complete turn off. I've read a couple other books by this author that were good. This one book ruined it. I won't be reading any more.

Sometimes you find love where you least expect it... Chris Dupree wasn't looking for love when he went to his best friend's wedding. He was there to support the friend who accepted him no matter what! Cynthia Myers can't believe she is at her ex-fiance's wedding. Her family didn't think she should give up on her ex, and even though she caused a bit of trouble between Max & Anna, they still wanted her there. And she was happy she went. Chris was drawn to Cynthia from the first moment he met her. She was everything he wanted and he hoped she would be open to the man that he is. They took a chance on each other and promised one night... Nothing else... So what is one to do when they meet that perfect someone and they live on two ends of the world (in their eyes!) That is what Chris & Cynthia face and the changes that they make for their own hearts' happiness were just what they needed. But not everyone is happy about it. Danger lurks in their lives and they have to protect what they treasure most. Cynthia is a character that I had to adjust to. Meeting her in ALH Sex didn't show her in the best light, but she turns out to be one of my favorite leading ladies of the series. She grows into her inner strength and makes people lover her! This book a bit different in the BDSM aspects and it adds to the characters and helps them grow into the best person for their mate. It is definitely a great story to read and sets the foundation for the Hawaii aspect of Harmless!
