Megalodon Team Members Profiles


Tempest Burnell was content with her life in the Southwestern desert until the day she came face to face with her past. Time had been wonderful to him, a tall Native American, blessing him with jet black hair, obsidian eyes, and bronzed skin covering a body packed in muscles.
James “Maverick” Lonetree heads to New Mexico because of a vision. When he lays eyes upon a sexy bartender, new life pours into him. He longs to know more about the dark-skinned, curvaceous woman and yet she seems to hate him.

When the past comes out, Maverick is faced with a hurdle more crucial than anything he’s ever faced in his thirty-six, even recent years as a SEAL. He is however, determined to break through the wall erected around Tempest’s heart and earn forgiveness for past transgressions. Combine her mistrust, with interfering families, and the fact he calls the other side of the country home, he knows it won’t be easy.

SEALs are known for many things, giving up…isn’t one of them. Maverick vows to make Tempest understand she’s not just his salvation, she is…

“Nope. I’m staying until closing. I’ll pick you up around two tomorrow.” Pushing the money closer, he sent her a predatory grin. “Plain Coke.”


Biting her lip, Tempest got him his drink, sliding it across the smooth finish. “Here you go; no charge.” Then she was gone, moving down the counter to tend other patrons. 


Maverick’s glass never went empty but Tempest kept her distance. He could tell the other workers wanted to ask her what he’d meant by his blatant admission. But she shook off their questions and stayed focused on her work.


It was after two-thirty in the morning before the place was empty aside from Tempest, Mili, and Maverick. Mili finished up sweeping the floor while Tempest cleaned behind the bar and did some inventory.


When Tempest had announced it was closing, everyone had groaned but began leaving. Last call had been made much earlier, so clean up was relatively easy. Maverick had merely drunk his Coke and watched people leave.


Only when two bouncers approached him had he reacted. He’d cast a glance back towards Tempest, who’d sent the men a nod of approval. So the men hadn’t bothered him and had made certain everyone else had left in an orderly fashion.


“You know you can’t make this a habit,” Tempest said as she ran a dry rag over the counter, making it gleam.


“Can’t make what a habit?” Maverick asked, deliberately being obtuse.


“Staying here all night. Don’t you have something more important to do?” Turning her back on him, she ran a critical eye over the bottles before her, taking stock.


Maverick allowed his eyes to travel all over her body. She stood with most of her weight on her left leg. Her stance allowed the leather of her pants to form even tighter to her derrière. She had a beautiful hourglass shape, one he longed to explore and get to know on an up close and very personal level.


With a quick wink to Mili, he vaulted effortlessly over the bar to land silently behind her. “I don’t have anything more important to do.” He allowed his eyes to move over her one more time, trying to control the insistent jerking of his swollen cock inside his pants. Maverick had to give her credit; she’d only jumped a small bit.


“What are you doing?”


“Turn around,” he spoke in a low, authoritative voice.


Slowly, Tempest complied with his order. “What? I’m really tired and want to get in bed.”


His eyes twinkled. “Is that an offer?"

Reviews of  Chayton’s Tempest

Nikita Steele at Joyfully Reviewed gives a Joyfully Recommended and says in part: “This story had all my favorite qualities: betrayal, hatred, distress, trust, drama, passion and most of all undying love. The chemistry between Tempest and Maverick was scorching hot from the start and their passion didn’t die down for one moment. Fans of this series will be thrilled by the revisit of all eight Megalodon Team men and their awesome wives. Overall, Chayton’s Tempest is one spectacular, Joyfully Reviewed recommended read not to be missed!”

Hollie at Coffee Time Romance gives Five Cups and says in part: “Chayton’s Tempest is full of love, hate, hurt and trust brought together into an amazing story of fate working to bring people together despite childhood betrayal by their parents. Maverick is determined to know his son and love Tempest regardless of how much she fears love and commitment. Ms. Burke has written a spectacular story to complete the taming of the Seal Megalodon Team”
