Breaking the Rules by Melinda Curtis

Please welcome back Melinda Curtis to my home as she breaks the rules and talks about her preferences for brunettes.


Breaking the Rules by Mel Curtis

Recently, I realized something about the heroes I write. I don’t do blondes. They may have more fun, but apparently not in my books. I’m not into gingers either (sorry Ron Weasley fans).  My heroes have dark hair, brown hair, and black hair.  Come to think of it, I may have only dated two blond men in my entire life!  Does this mean that Brad Pitt and Chris Hemsworth don’t do it for me?  Uh, no.  But perhaps they don’t have that dark, dangerous edge I’ve come to love.  Thinking back over the heroes you’ve fallen for, what color hair did they have?


To say Jack and Vivian Gordon’s marriage has been rocky would be an understatement. The Gordons have been on a roller coaster of love and lust, but can’t seem to get on the same page at the same time. This power couple needs a time-out to find their happily ever after.  And life coach to Hollywood’s rich and powerful, Cora Rule, has just the solution – have the couple sign their divorce papers in a safe room…and lock them inside.


Vivian Gordon had a problem.

A six-foot-two-inch hunk of a problem.

Sex with Jack hadn’t solved the problem.  Marrying him hadn’t solved the problem.  Leaving him hadn’t solved the problem.

The problem was that Viv loved her husband, but Jack didn’t love her.

It wasn’t as if Jack was incapable of love, as some of Hollywood moguls seemed to be.  No, Jack had passion aplenty, but it was for the NBA team he owned, the L.A. Flash, not for a woman.  Not for Viv.

Viv watched Jack swim his daily laps with strong, commanding strokes.  Heaven forbid Jack didn’t get his laps in.  If he didn’t, he was the biggest shit.

Her Gianvito Rossi black suede lace up heels clicked slowly across the white marble tile as she approached the patio doors in the house they’d once shared.  Her cadence was one of a doomed prisoner being shown the open door of the gas chamber.

This is the end.

And she’d chosen the execution date.
