Melissa Marino books in order

Melissa Marino is an avid Storm Trooper collector and American author of contemporary romance novels.

Growing up, Melissa was obsessed by three things: The Wizard of Oz, Care Bears, and books.

One of her favorite books was Care Bears: The Witch Down the Street.

Her writing journey began when she inquired from her mom why there weren't books about Care Bears AND The Wizard of Oz.

So when she was informed there were none, Melissa was instead encouraged to write one—and she has never looked back since.

Melissa finally became a full-time writer after spending more than a decade in the beauty industry, and another decade as a stay at home mom.

She currently lives in Chicago with her beloved son and their highly opinionated dachshund.

Whenever she's not writing, Melissa can be found watching Friends reruns, mastering her cupcake frosting swirl, and desperately searching for the perfect red lipstick.

Bad Behavior

So Twisted

Sometimes it feels good to be a little bad.

Callie has found the perfect job. As nanny for a single dad and his adorable daughter, she can pay off her student loans and live in a nice house in the heart of Chicago. There's just one problem-her new boss. Definitely no dad bod here. Just six-plus feet of raw, sexual energy. Whoever heard of a dad being so hot?

From the sparkle in his daughter's eyes, Aaron can see that hiring Callie was a good decision. But Callie's breathtaking smile and long legs have him thinking about his own needs. Aaron knows it's a bad idea to get involved with the nanny, but it's been years since anyone has captivated him like Callie.

When living under the same roof proves too tempting to resist, Callie and Aaron discover a mind-blowing passion unlike anything either has experienced. But with a curious child and a nosy family in the mix, their secret, no-strings fling soon turns into a twisted, tangled knot...

So Wicked

"Fate has a wicked sense of humor."

Alexis's new life was made up of two things: baking and hiding the details of her old life in Chicago. The first allowed her to finally find some happiness. And the second is about to be destroyed by a man who knows all her secrets.

Marshall Rawlins was prepared to do anything when he moved cross-country to launch an upscale cocktail bar---anything except work with Alexis, his best friend and business partner's ex-wife. Adding Alexis's boozy-baked goods to his menu would be a major feat for his bar. But striking a deal means getting in bed with the enemy.

Battling between distrust and desire, Alexis and Marshall give in to a passionate, forbidden affair. They know if they're discovered the consequences would be bad---it's just hard to remember that when being together feels so, so good.
