New Release ~Breaking All the Rules~

Wednesday, April 18th, 2018

PROMO_Burke_BreakingAlltheRulesNEWHappy Release Day to me.

Okay, full disclosure, it’s not actually a new release. It’s one that was out at All Romance before they closed their doors. No new words are added here. Just this awesome cover and a new company.


Publisher: Twisted E-Publishing

Genre: Contemporary, Interracial

Series: DARK, INC. Book 1


One night of passion can lead to anything, for a woman and her boss, can it—will it lead to happily ever after?


A member of D.A.R.K. Cover, Inc., Kristopher “Wild” Wilder is taking a few days of R&R in Belize after his last mission. There he meets a woman who sets his blood on fire and the night they share is explosive to say the least. Little does he know, she’s the woman his brothers’ hired to be their company’s newest pilot. After the passion in Belize, he looks forward to continuing the connection. Problem: she isn’t on board with that idea.

Alyse Lamar is a damn good pilot. She’s taken this new job for a few reasons but when she realizes she’s slept with one of her new bosses, she isn’t sure it’s the best place for her to remain. She can’t seem to keep her hands off him, nor him her. Her strict rule about never mixing business with pleasure is taking one heck of a beating.

Wild is many things, a quitter isn’t one of them. He wants this feisty woman and knows she wants him just as much. He vows to find a way past her walls and make her understand that what began as one night in Belize is worth breaking all the rules and can lead to forever.


New Release ~ Wednesday Whisper ~ Code Name: Sleeper

Wednesday, March 21st, 2018

PROMO_CodeNameSleeperNEWHappy Wednesday. I know it’s been a while since I’ve tossed up a Wednesday Whisper but as today is my release day for Code Name: Sleeper figured I would roll two into one. *grin*

I know people have been waiting for Michael and Lisa’s story after having met them in Code Name: Papa. And it took a while but here they are.



You can’t always let go of the past, sometimes you don’t want to…

Michael Whyte has been branded a traitor to his country. He’s betrayed those closest to him all in the line of duty. When the plan starts to come to fruition he breaks out of prison and goes to one woman who will either help him, or kill him.

Lisa Rockers has moved on with her life since leaving EGIS. Or so she thought. Everything changes one rainy night when the man she’s always loved but who betrayed not only her but also everything she believed they stood for, returns. After hearing him out, can she let him deal with this unbelievable story he tells her alone? Or is she willing to risk it all for him.


A cup of coffee accompanied her treats and two cops strode in as she paid. The men nodded at her and she returned the gesture. Shoving her change in the pocket of the rolled-up sweats she wore, she eyed her donut with a ravenous hunger.

Damn donuts.

Toasting the attendant with her coffee, she strode back out into the deluge. The all-important donuts she retained beneath her shirt, she juggled her keys and coffee. Ignoring the rain streaming down her skin, she started her truck. As she paused, she ate a donut and put the cup in its holder. One immediate need soothed, she sucked the final frosting from her thumb then shifted into gear. Going right out of the lot, she drove to SoDo, named for its location. South of Downtown.

Locating an empty place, not with any close corners or lingering cars, she parked and killed the engine. As she unbuckled her belt, she put her fingertips on three specific areas then slid open a storage area top and grabbed two items. She hopped out in the rain and moved to the tailgate, body humming with energy.

She lowered it and clicked on her Maglite, spilling its illumination across the bed to the tarp against the cab.

“Whoever you are, I have a 9mm loaded with hollow points aimed at you. Come out, extremely slowly, showing me your hands at all times. And do not make me repeat myself.”

She inched slightly to the right, continuing to remain in a great shot line. The second the tarp began to move, it was all there was in her world. No rain. No anything but her and the potential threat to her life.

Her heart pounded hard in her ears, but her hands never wavered. Not until the removed tarp allowed her light to shine on the stowaway kneeling in the bed of her truck.

Michael Whyte.

New Release ~ Beyond His Control

Wednesday, January 10th, 2018

COVER_Burke_BeyondHisControlSo, yep, I’m late again in announcing my newest release.

This story falls after the Quad series when their children are all grown up and doing stupid things…just kidding. *grin* However, it is the story of Derek and Jacey’s son Caleb and Kamden, Lane and Kenya’s daughter.


For him, rules were meant to be followed, except when it comes to her…

Caleb Moser loves being a Marine. His life couldn’t be much better, if only he could learn to let the one woman who he turned down, go. He can’t. He won’t. And when she is in trouble, he’ll break all those rules he was fine following before to save her.

Kamden Strong is in Taiwan when her life turns upside down. Struggling to survive her kidnapping, she’s not sure she will make it out. When her rescue comes, it’s the last man she ever thought she would see again.

Will they have something beyond the jungle? Beyond the painful memories?



New Release ~ Vindication

Monday, December 25th, 2017

Happy December.

It’s my last release of the year. This is book 3 of Theta Corps. And yes, for those of you who were asking about him, this is Beauregard’s story.


What happens after all those years of sniping at one another when they are alone together?

Beauregard Jackson has a reputation of being a ladies man. It never bothered him until an ex shows up from his past and makes his life hell. When she goes after the one woman he’s never dated but has loved truly, Beau takes action.

Shanon “Mino” Tumelo has spent years putting off her own dreams to work at Theta Corps. Since she’d quit there, she’d gone back to medical school and was months away from finishing when she’s yanked back into that world.

While she and Beau work together, she struggles to fight her feelings for him, aware he’s not a long-term kind of man. Beau, however, wants to change her mind for she’s the one he wants. Can he convince her of his love for her?

New Release ~ His Pryze to Claim

Wednesday, September 20th, 2017

Burke_Omega_2_HisPryzeAre you loving the Kindleworld stories? I am, it lets me get a taste of a new author. Anyway, I have a new one out in Desiree Holt’s Omega Team Kindleworld series. This one ties in with my last one, His Rysk to Take. The heroines are cousins.

A wedding, a car crash, and more heat than they know what to do with.

Liz Pryze is attending her cousin’s wedding where she meets the handsome best man. Sparks fly immediately but she’s determined to be on her best behavior and not proposition him. Not an easy task especially with the looks he’s been giving her all night.

Cullen O’Rourke is enamored by the bride’s cousin. Determined to get her alone, he offers to drive her when she’s recalled to work. The trip doesn’t go as planned when they’re rammed off the road and hunted. After she gets out of the hospital, together they figure out who’s after one of them and why. Being locked up with her in a cabin is the perfect time for him to claim his prize.
