    That's Novel Interviews Authors Melanie Harlow and Melissa West

    in Books

    Melanie Harlow likes her martinis dry, her heels high, and her history with the naughty bits left in. When she's not reading good books, she gets her kicks from TV series like Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire, Masters of Sex, Deadwood, Mad Men, and Downtown Abbey (although she wishes it were more HBO and less PBS).

    Melanie is the author of the FRENCHED contemporary romance series (FRENCHED, YANKED, FORKED, FLOORED) and the sexy historical series SPEAK EASY (SPEAK EASY, SPEAK LOW), set in the 1920s.

    She lifts her glass to romance readers and writers from her home near Detroit, MI, where she lives with her husband and two daughters.

    You can find her on Amazon at: http://amzn.to/1HCBLvx


    Melissa West writes heartfelt Southern romance and YA sci-fi romance, all with lots of kissing. Because who doesn't like kissing?. She lives outside of Atlanta, GA with her husband and two daughters and spends most of her time writing, reading, or fueling her coffee addiction.
