Instead of trying to find your perfect match in a dating app, we bring you the “Author-Reader Match" where we introduce you to authors you may fall in love with. It's our great pleasure to present Melinda Curtis!


Melinda Curtis writes sweet romance and sweet romcoms set in small towns and bigger cities. Her stories make readers laugh a little, cry a little, and sigh a little. Her latest release is a small-town ranching romance loosely based on Beauty & the Beast.



Melinda Curtis developed her sense of humor working her way from a corporate cubicle to an office, which seems surreal considering she grew up on a 50-acre sheep ranch. She’s raised kids and furry creatures and is a newly minted grandma living in a fixer with a fishpond in the backyard (the previous owners stocked it with regular old goldfish that somehow are still alive). To combat a chocolate addiction and writer’s butt, she gets on the Peloton every morning, but her nights are filled with reading romances and watching kdramas or Hallmark movies.


What I’m looking for in my ideal reader match:

The ideal reader for my latest release – HEALING THE RANCHER – must love…

  • Gruff cowboys with hearts of gold
  • Rescue animals, particularly charming goats, and llamas
  • Fashion-forward heroines who aren’t prepared for the ranch life
  • Large, meddlesome but well-meaning families
  • Books by Susan Mallery, RaeAnne Thayne or Brenda Novak


What to expect if we’re compatible:

You’ll want to check out the other books in the Mountain Monroe series, in which twelve siblings and cousins inherit a small town in Idaho and end up getting more than they bargained for.


The Mountain Monroes # 11

Healing the Rancher

A Clean Romance


Widowed rancher and gruff single dad Finn McAfee hides behind his scars. That is, until city gal Kendall Monroe arrives, determined to learn everything about ranching. But while Kendall definitely doesn’t fit in, her infectious energy seems to touch the lives of everyone she meets—including Finn and his little girl. Now everything Finn cherishes could be unraveled by the one thing he thought he’d lost forever: love.

About Melinda Curtis

Melinda Curtis

Although Melinda has lived in Georgia and Texas, she's a California girl at heart. Her earliest memories are of life on an isolated 50-acre sheep ranch in rural Sonoma County, California. Picture rolling hills covered in brown grass, a eucalyptus forest, a long gravel driveway lined with plump sheep and no sidewalks. It was a big deal to drive into town on a one-lane road in a ramshackle, bubble-fendered pickup for an ice cream.

Flash forward to this century. Melinda lives in California's hot central valley with her husband - her basketball playing college sweetheart. With three kids the couple has done the soccer thing, the karate thing, the dance thing, the Little League thing and, of course, the basketball thing.

Melinda writes sweet to medium heat contemporary romances as Melinda Curtis and red hot reads as Mel Curtis. She loves writing romances about women who don't realize how strong they are until a hero comes along to show them, while capturing the wry humorous power struggle of falling in love - because, really, who lets the man have the last word?
