Instead, she finds sexy handyman Reed Kimball—and a small town full of fatal secrets.Five years ago, Reed buried his homicide detective career along with his wife. But when a hiker is found dead, the local police chief asks Reed for help. Why was a Celtic coin found under the body? And where is the second hiker? Avoiding the media, Reed doesn’t need a murder, a missing person, or a nosey photographer. Then Jayne is attacked, and her courage is his undoing. Reed must risk everything to protect her and find a cunning killer.

A revelation that puts her family in danger. As more people disappear, it becomes clear the killer is planning another ritual…and that he’s circling in on Mandy.


Melinda Leigh is a fully recovered banker. A life-long lover of books, she started writing when her youngest child entered first grade as a way to preserve her sanity. in 2007, she joined Romance Writers of America, learned a few things about writing a book, and decided the process was way more fun than analyzing financial statements. It was time to get serious about making her hobby a career. She began submitting her work in 2008. In 2009 she signed with an agent, who sold Melinda’s debut romantic suspense novel, SHE CAN RUN, in 2010 to Montlake Romance.
SHE CAN RUN released in November 2011 and became the #1 Bestseller in Kindle Romantic Suspense. SHE CAN RUN has been nominated for a 2012 Thriller Award for Best First Novel.
Melinda is also an avid martial artist. She holds a 2nd degree black belt in Kenpo Karate, studies Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and teaches women’s self-defense.

Melinda is giving away the following prizes on the tour:
GRAND PRIZE - a $25 gift card to Amazon and autographed copies of both MIDNIGHT books
TWO runners up get to pick a book of their choice from either the SHE CAN or MIDNIGHT series


  1. Anyone who reads Midnight Sacrifice, and its predecessor, Midnight Exposure, will not be disappointed.

    Both books have the perfect balance between romance and suspense, not an easy feat.

    While the books are stand-alone books, I prefer to read books in a series in order and would recommend any reader do so.

    Also, I have read the two books in your “She Can” series, She Can Run and She Can Tell, respectively. It is another great series, Melinda, and I cannot wait to read the next in the series, She Can Run.

  2. I recently received Midnight Sacrifice but have not read Midnight Exposure. I'd love to win a copy of M.E. so that I can read the storyline in order.

  3. I've only had the opportunity to read She Can Tell, but became an immediate Melinda Leigh fan. Looking forward to adding her other books to my library!

  4. This is a new author for me, but the books sound great. Will add them to the tbr.

    Thanks for the introduction and giveaway,

    Elizabeth Gray
