Melinda Leigh | My Very First Bad Boy


No. Iím not talking about my personal history. The hero of MIDNIGHT SACRIFICE, Danny Sullivan, is the first bad boy hero Iíve ever written.

To be precise, Iraqi War veteran Danny Sullivan is a reformed bad boy. This was the first time Iíd ever written a hero with a shady background. Danny had a troubled youth and enlisted in the army. Being a soldier brought out the best in him, but poor Danny was injured in Iraq. Heís sent home with a bum hand and PTSD.†

Danny is lost without the career that defined him as a good man. But he comes home determined to find a new purpose. His new goal in life is to find the escaped killer who kidnapped Dannyís sister and still haunts her dreams. Danny faces many challenges, but one of the most attractive qualities about him, aside from his sexy grin and piercing blue eyes, is his wicked sense of humor. The Midnight Series is very dark. When I write a book this dark, I always try to balance the drama out with light moments. Dannyís self-deprecating sense of humor blossomed into the perfect counter to the storyís dark plot.

Mandy Brown has a terrible time resisting him, but she must. For Dannyís determination to find the killer threatens to uncover a secret that endangers Mandyís family.

Tell me. Can you resist a reformed bad boy?

No! DH is proof of that.
I think that the more attention our soldiers returning home can get is amazing and great - it is really appreciated.

The reformed bad boy is gong to be a lot more interesting and streetwise than someone who's been a goody or lived in a gilded cage!
