Second Go-Round by @AuthorLynnBurke

Second Go-Round
Elite Escorts #2
Contemporary Erotic Romance, Suspense


Christine Gemberling doesn’t enjoy breaking hearts, but she has yet to find a man who knows how to handle the package between his legs well enough to satisfy her needs. No man has held her interest beyond a second date—much less her love. Until one sultry night with an Elite Escort rocks her world like never before.


Professional escort Jarod Zimmerman has a strict code when working with clients—no emotional attachments. But the beer-drinking, football loving Christine and her curves push beyond his control, until the guarded playboy finds himself craving another go-round with the only woman intriguing enough to make him break his own code.


With her defenses stronger than his favorite football team, it will take more than Jarod’s talents in bed to change her stance on relationships. He’ll have to sacrifice his heart when the unexpected circumstance thrown their way threatens to rip them apart forever.


*Warning: Exhibition, spanking, anal sex, sex toys



Jarod lowered onto the limo seat beside me and pressed close, his large hand grasping the top of my thigh.
“Where to?” Ricky asked as he settled behind the wheel a moment later.
I spouted off my address quite a ways up Route 1, and with a nod, he shut the window between us, encasing Jarod and I in complete privacy. Soft music came to life, and seconds later, the limo pulled out into Boston’s nighttime traffic.
“For the first go-round, I’m going to fuck you against the front door of your house, but right now,” Jarod said, lowering to his knees in front of me, “I’m going to bury my nose between these thighs and lick your cunt until you squirm.” 
“I like the way you think,” I said, my voice breathless, betraying my body’s need.
His hands slid up my thighs, pushing my skirt into a bunch. I wiggled, assisting in his plan, and he yanked me to the seat’s edge.
“Comfy?” he asked, trailing a fingertip against the soaked silk covering me.
“Comfy enough.”
Jarod hooked his fingers under the sides of my panties and pulled them down my legs, releasing my heeled feet one at a time. He tossed the panties aside, and grasping my knees, spread me wide.
“Bare.” He stared at the smooth skin between my thighs as he moved close. “I like that.” Palming my ass, he lifted me and buried his face in my pussy as promised, my moan and his groan colliding in the air between us.
My eyelids fluttered shut and head tipped back as he ate me out like a starving man. Tongue, nose, and teeth, he didn’t pussyfoot around, but tortured me with his need to taste every inch, fuck me deep with his long tongue, nibble my swollen lips … flick and suck my throbbing clit.
My fingers found purchase in his hair, and I ground myself against his face, chasing my orgasm. Bastard let off and dipped low to lick my ass and tongue me every time I neared the crest. I tried to force his head back up to my clit, but he held steady, denying me what I wanted.
“Goddamn it, Jarod!” I yanked on his hair as my clit popped from his mouth’s suction again and he roamed southward to my ass.
He snickered and caught my gaze as his tongue rimmed my puckered hole.
My hold tightened on his hair, my heart thundered in my chest. “Please. I need to come.”
Finally—finally—he pressed two fingers deep into my sopping wet core. “Is this what you need, Christine? My fingers fucking your cunt and my mouth on your clit?”
“Oh, fuck.” My head tipped back again as he latched onto my clit. “Don’t stop. Please … Christ, don’t stop!” You’d think I hadn’t climaxed in months the way my orgasm ripped through me. 
Jarod’s fingers and tongue drew out every clench of my pussy, every shudder rippling down through me as I gasped for breath. He lapped up every trace of my cum and sucked his fingers clean, the noises in his throat barely reaching through the ringing in my ears. 
I sagged into the leather seat, sucking wind. “Holy shit. It’s no wonder you get paid to please a woman.”

Cover Reveal: Juniper Unraveling by Keri Lake

Juniper Unraveling Mailerlite Image


Title: Juniper Unraveling

Genre: Dark Dystopian Romance

Cover Design: Okay Creations

Release Date: October 31, 2017


Papa says everyone has a story that deserves to be told.

Most begin years ago, after the second bomb hit, unearthing a deadly contagion that divided the population into the pure, the infected, and the Ragers.

Many recount the moment we rose up from the ashes and started anew.

Others tell of the day we built a wall to keep them out.

For some, they’re nothing more than the vestiges left behind—a simple name carved into the knotty bark of a Juniper tree.

My story begins with a boy. A mute, from the other side of the wall, known only as Six, who touched my heart in ways that words never could, and gave me the courage to face my darkest truth.

Dan & Liv Bonus Story: An Update

Okey dokey.

If you’ve read CORNERED, there’s a chance you know about the offered Dan & Liv bonus story.

I’ve even had emails about it, asking when it might be available.

At the time, I thought I’d have it out to readers earlier this year. However, authors are just regular people, and stuff gets in the way, and sometimes deadlines don’t get met, and I won’t bore you with this anymore. Just know that I worked my butt off trying to free up time to get this written. And in July, I finally did.

And then one of my dogs got sick, and I had a lot of sleepless nights, until in early August, we made the tough decision to send her off to play in the clouds. Which took a little bit of getting over.

Even so, I persisted with Dan & Liv whenever I could. And then, the 6 – 8K of words I’d anticipated for this story turned into almost 20K ….



Yup, yesterday morning, I called wraps on the Dan & Liv bonus story.
If you have signed up for it, it should be coming through to you REAL soon.

If you haven’t, or you don’t know how, let me just explain what this story is and how you might get it.

  1. The Dan & Liv bonus story is a FREE read and is a thank you gift to those who have followed along in the novels of the Holloway Pack
  2. If you are not up to date with the Holloway Pack books, you won’t understand the bonus story, because I’ve written no back-story in to explain the set-up, or introduce the characters (if you’re up to date, you’ll know what you need to know
  3. If you are not up to date with the Holloway Pack books, you’ll be hit with a bunch of spoilers
  4. If you ARE up to date with the pack, then you SHOULD know about and how to sign up for this freebie
  5. If you ARE up to date and don’t know about it, then you can contact me either via here, or my website, with some kind of proof that you’re up to date with the series and want to read it because you’re excited to see where the story goes, rather than you want your hands on it because it’s free/you can pirate it out to every man and his dog, and I’m happy that you’ve read what you need to have to grab this, then I’ll ensure you know how to grab yourself a copy.

This might all sound a little unnecessary, or cloak and dagger, but

  1. Pirating is constantly on the rise and I ain’t contributing to that, and besides pirating something that is supposed to be a gift and is free, is just nasty and fairly petty (imo)
  2. I don’t really want this one being added to Goodreads, so it can get a bunch of 1* reviews from folks who have read it without reading the previous books and get miffed because they haven’t a clue what’s going on

That’s why I’m making it available this way, and (hopefully) this way only.

So, if you signed up for the story, keep an eye on your email, and if you didn’t and are up to date with everything else, you might want to get on that.



The Holloway Pack Boxed Set …

… is out TODAY!

For the first time ever, THE WOLF WITHIN, BLUE MOON, and CAGED are available in a single boxed set, and you can grab your copy now.

Boxed Set 1-3

Seven alpha wolves.

Not brothers by blood, but brothers by nature.

When Jem Stonehouse reunites with the Alpha’s son, Sean, she has no idea just what she is taking on.

And the pack has no idea just how many lives will need to be taken, when they accept Jem into their fold and agree to protect her.

For the first time, books 1, 2 & 3 of The Holloway Pack are available in a single boxed set.


Jem Stonehouse, a housewife with a neurotic husband bent on keeping her in line, dreams about werewolves in, what she believes to be, a bid to escape boredom.

Sean Holloway is a werewolf, living a charade within the human race, whose mind drifts to a bond he shares with a woman he hasn’t met—at least, not in this lifetime.

Apart, the two are safe, but live unfulfilled lives.

Together, they’ll become prey to rival packs, just as they have been for hundreds of years.

When their worlds collide, instinct takes over. Dreams become reality. Their renewed bond deepens. To keep history from repeating itself, Sean must teach Jem about his heritage, convince her of her role, and win her love.

Can Jem accept her destiny before it’s too late, or is her inner wolf buried too deep to save her future with Sean?

***Previously published as Darkness & Light***


Someone is watching the Holloway Pack, and this time, the female isn’t the target.

Life with a group of seven male werewolves worries Jem Stonehouse not one bit. She is engaged to the Alpha’s son Sean Holloway after all. So what has Jem’s territorial instincts on high alert?

The pack’s latest addition. Both of them.

None of the men think there’s a problem with the new girlfriends. Jem’s intuition tells her otherwise—that and a nagging suspicion the new females aren’t there to partake.

Jem believes they’ve joined in to take.

The question is … What?

As the eve of the blue moon draws ever closer, Jem’s running out of time to find the answer and outwit a thief of the worst possible kind.

A woman who believes she can’t lose.


If the meek can become deadly, the strongest can be weak.

For Ethan Holloway, his mission to find a missing werewolf should be simple. Crack a few heads, bust a few chops and the solution always reveals itself. Always.

Not this time.

Ethan’s reputation precedes him, and because it does, someone is ready. Waiting. Unbeknownst to Ethan, he’s about to go down. Hard. Against a foe he never suspected and in a world he never imagined could be real.

What awaits Ethan is a fight not only for his reputation, but also his pack, his female, and his life. If he survives, damage control will become priority number one.

If he survives.

Because even Ethan’s not sure he’s strong enough to take on an entire race all by himself.

Especially one hell bent on exposing who and what he is in the name of sport.

Love #BDSM? Check out @LynnBurke’s New Release: Abel’s Obsession

Title: Abel’s Obsession
Author: Lynn Burke
Genre: BDSM Novella
Release Date: August 31, 2017
Publisher: Evernight Publishing
25% off through Evernight Publishing
A young man of religious fervor and self-control, Abel Beiler has every intention of honoring his parents and being baptized into the Amish church. The woman with red curls and flashing green eyes in the back of a convertible, however, makes Abel wonder what life with the English might be like.

He strives to withstand temptation, but the memory of the woman he yearns to dominate, coupled with the explicit images in his cousin’s filthy magazine, threatens his restraint.
Red, his sinful obsession, haunts his shameful dreams and becomes a secret part of his life. When faced with truth beyond faith, Abel must decide where he belongs—with the Amish community, or the woman who owns his heart.

Much later and hoarse from singing for two hours, my curiosity overrode my better sense, and I followed Eli into the hayloft of their barn. While I held the kerosene lamp, he climbed high into the rafters and returned with a magazine clutched in his hand.
“Got this from my new English friend, Toby.” He sat on a bale, opened the magazine, and turned it toward me.

Lust kicked me in the gut, and I couldn’t speak.

A naked woman lay spread eagle and bound by ropes to a bed, a blindfold and some sort of ball gag in her mouth. A man loomed over her, whip in hand. Tear streaks lined the woman’s face. Red slashes marked her thighs. Wetness coated the pink folds of her sex, glistening, and set my mouth to watering.

The image burned into my brain—submission in an entirely different way than the Old Order’s definition of the word. Spirituality is submission, is what had been reiterated in my ears since childhood. Self-surrender. The willingness to give up oneself to the community and Gott’s chosen leaders.

I soaked in the sinful picture, and for the first time in my life wanted power. Wanted control. I wanted a woman’s submission like the man in leather beside her owned. Unable to tear my gaze off the image, I struggled to swallow.

“Didn’t know people actually did this shit.”

Eli’s curse, the first I had heard from him, barely registered past the blood rushing in my ears. My body tensed as longing to be the man standing over that woman, whip in hand raced through me faster than any thoroughbred—or car.
The image of Red flashed in my mind, and suddenly it was her bound to the bed in the picture, breathing heavily, trembling, and begging for me…
