Interview With Author Melanie Shawn (Tempting Love, Contemporary Romance)


In your own words, please describe your book….
Tempting Love is the story of Haley Sloan and her sexy single dad neighbor Eddie. Long-time readers of The Crossroads Series will recognize both of these characters from past books. Haley is one of the Quad Squad – they are cousins to the Sloan brothers, who are the heroes of My First, My Last, My Only, and My Everything. Eddie is also the older brother of Chelle, the heroine from My Last.

Harper’s Crossing is a small town! 🙂

What is the genre?
Melanie Shawn books are contemporary romance, with a healthy dose of humor and heart. The motto that we live by and write by is “Love, Laughter, and Happily Ever After.”

Will this book be a standalone or part of a series?
Tempting Love is the 5th book in The Crosssroads Series. The first four books told the stories of the Sloan brothers: Jason, Riley, Alex, and Seth. Now, we are going to explore the stories of their cousins, The Quad Squad. First up is Haley, and the next three books will highlight Krista, Jessie, and Becca.

What books are similar to this one? 
Readers often tell us that The Crossroads Series reminds them of Bella Andre’s Sullivan Series, Jill Shalvis’s  Lucky Harbor Series, Shannon Stacey’s Kowolski Series, Erin Nicholas’s Counting on Love Series, and Melissa Foster’s Love in Bloom Series.

Where can readers find your book?
Tempting Love is available from multiple digital book retailers, including the following:





Can you tell us some about the writer behind the book?
We are a writing team of two sisters that live in Southern California. We are passionate about animals and have three dogs between the two of us. We are also opposites in many ways – Shawna is an extrovert and Melanie is an introvert, for example. Also, Shawna is a romantic and Melanie is a pragmatist. Our differing sensibilities make us the perfect balanced team!

Tell us one thing about you we wouldn’t know?
We are both California Girls through and through – neither one of us has ever lived in a different state at all, not even for a short period of time.

How can readers connect with you?
We love to connect with our readers! We are most active on Facebook  and Twitter .

What are you working on now?
Right now, four installments of The Crossroads Series are currently being released. Tempting Love just came out, then we have Crazy Love coming out in May, Actually Love coming out in June, and Fairytale Love coming out in July.

After that, we are entering the very exciting world of New Adult Romance with a brand new trilogy about Cat, a sheltered girl who is starting a whole new life as she begins her Freshman year in college. When she meets Jace, a sexy and sensitive bartender who is struggling with a dark past, the sparks fly and neither one of them will ever be the same. Those three books (Consumed by You, Captivated by You, and Completed by You) will be released in August, September, and October.
