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?

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.

New Release ~ Restitution

Tuesday, September 12th, 2017

restitution_800[5059]I know some of y’all know the In Aeternum series that had Casanova in Training, Harbour of Refuge, Protected by Shadows, & Polar Opposites. And within that series there were mention of Theta Corps and the Jackson cousins, Ethan, Anabelle Lee, and Beauregard.

Well, this one, Restitution, is the first of these Theta Corps stories and it is Ethan’s story. The other two will also be out this year.


This spy has fallen for the princess who helped save him.

Ethan Jackson has been a prisoner for longer than he cares thinking about. An opportunistic perimeter alarm allows for him and one other to escape. Almost recaptured, they are saved by the timely arrival of his family. Now he just has to figure out who this woman with him is and where the man behind his own kidnapping has gone.

Zahra “Rally” Kidjo has a kinship with the man who saved her but her trust only goes so far. The youngest child in the ruling royal family she’s used to betrayal from the inside. Once brash and outspoken on her beliefs, she’s now reserved and soft-spoken.

While this horrible ordeal is now over, can Ethan keep this princess in his life or will he lose her to her familial obligations?

New Release ~ Autumn Frost

Thursday, September 7th, 2017

Happy Thursday.

Another release for me this week. This one is Autumn Frost and is my first of 4 stories that will be taking place within the Brotherhood Protectors Kindleworld series by Elle James.

I’m honored that she’s allowing me to play in her world. All 4 of mine will have dogs in them as an added bonus. So, here’s a bit more about Autumn Frost.

Burke_AutumnFrost LGBlurb:

Simon Frederick, freshly separated from the military, was minding his own business heading home to his cabin when a woman stumbles from the woods and right in front of his truck. When she passes out in his arms, he takes her home.

Geri found herself in a strange cabin with a man she didn’t know. The only familiar one around her was Lars, her Beauceron. As her memory comes back little by little, she realizes that there is much more than meets the eye of the man who saved her. They grow closer as does the danger. When the bullets stop and the calm returns, will they be together?



New Release ~ Labor of Love Anthology

Monday, September 4th, 2017

Happy Monday,

This is a collection of 10 stories by myself and Dahlia Rose, Reana Malori, Angela Kay Austin, Hadley Raydeen, Leila Lacey, Raven Starr, Cordelia Michelsen, Jaimie Lyne Sanderson, and Autumn Latimore.


We all experienced Love of some sort and know there are some struggles that come with. This Anthology is 10 such shorts for your enjoyment.

•Beale Street Blues -Angela Kay Austin: Darling Crawford lost the man she loved to another woman. Returning to her parents was bad enough, but returning home broke, divorced, and jobless is awful.

•Fall from Grace- Dahlia Rose Grace Kyle fell in love and fell in love hard for an older sexy soldier. Even though she knew it was a bad idea. She was part of the group sending humanitarian aid out Ecuador after a brutal storm and mudslide. Grace met him on base in Lawton Oklahoma and it was a hot and heavy month-long affair with Major Oliver Mason. “It’s been fun Grace, but we knew this didn’t have a future…” she didn’t hear the rest of his words because his words broke her heart. Pride made her turn on her heels and leave before he saw her tears and she went back to Eugene Oregon with a broken heart and a vow to forget him. One year later as the holidays approached, a knock on her door brought all those memories to life. Oliver stood at her doorstep, handsome as sin in his uniform with his hat in his hands. He begged her to forgive him, she was the only thing the thought about in the last year and he tried like hell to find her. But it fell on deaf ears because Grace vowed never to be hurt again by anyone. The sweet woman he fell for was gone, she buried that naivety and while he vowed he’d put in the work to win her back. She promised him and herself she would thwart his effort. But his kisses still made her sizzle and the passion they shared never dulled. Now she was the one saying it was for fun and games, except now there may be something that connects them forever. It would be a labor of love to win her back and Oliver was not one to step away from a challenge.
•For You I Will- Hadley Raydeen: Callie Johnson has worked as the Office Manager at Harmon and Associates, a top law firm in the city for a number of years. She runs the office smoothly and without being second guessed. The Managing Partner, Paul Harmon, trusted her to take care of the office, while he tended to the law.

Can they find a way to work together in harmony or will they see themselves both in the unemployment line?

A woman with a checkered past finds love in the least expected of places…

Sanura “Mac” McKie is a restaurateur who’s trying to put her past behind her. Running her business is her focus and has made her into a woman who’s unused to explaining her actions to others. Taking a delivery one morning changes everything.

Gavin Rawlins is an architect looking to start his own company and get away from his current boss. Wealthy and used to getting what he wants, he’s immediately enamored with the woman who stops by to deliver their lunch during a meeting. She’s completely different from the women he usually meets—those who want access to his money. It isn’t an issue for her, at least not in the way he’s used to.

His pursuit of her is hampered by an interfering mother, a few misunderstandings, and a past that keeps popping up to haunt her. When the smoke clears, will Gavin be able to keep the woman who’s become more to him than just his vision for the future? Can he get Mac to trust in his love and prove he’s out for more than a little taste of home?
