Spy versus spy...

Top-secret government operatives can't afford emotional attachments. Years ago, Beckett Hanson broke the rule and fell in love. Hard. She was a spy - like Beckett - until she went dark eight years ago. She simply disappeared. And for Beckett, that meant hardening his broken heart and being the job. Until one phone call changes everything...

Indigo Grey left her life behind eight years ago when she became pregnant. Since then, she's lived a "normal" life with her son, until a trip lands them both in some serious hot water. Now her son's life is in danger and Indigo is desperate. The only person who can help her is the man she ran away from years ago, and they're running out of time...


"Burke delivers on the spy romance and with a dangerous couple to boot. Pick this up when you need your kick-butt heroine action romance fix." --Danielle the Book Huntress

"Excellent book! The pacing, the characters, the research. Lots of action, weapons, gizmos, all sounding authentic for mercenary assassins. But that didn't overwhelm the story. I'm all about the relationship in a romance and that never wavered in this one." --Andrea Jackson, Goodreads

Ms. Burke gave me just what I was asking for: a great interracial spy romance. And the heroine is Grade A Certified Kickbutt Artist. She reminds me favorably of one of my all time favorite heroines, Charly Baltimore from "The Long Kiss Goodnight." There's even a line about her joining the PTA and ma ...more

Loved, Loved this story! Every place that I leave a review, I'm giving it the highest rating that I can. It drew me in right away with some pretty quick action right out of the box in the very first chapter. What's not to like about a kick-butt mother out to save her young kidnapped son? She has ski ...more

Excellent book! The pacing, the characters, the research. Lots of action, weapons, gizmos, all sounding authentic for mercernary assassins. But that didn't overwhelm the story. I'm all about the relationship in a romance and that never wavered in this one.

Mission: Impossible

"Code Name: Papa" was an enjoyable read. I liked Indigo and Beckett together and wished that the story was more focused on them (trying to make their way back to being a couple) and Sean and not the extremely detailed mission. Otherwise, great read. ...more

Good story. Liked the characters and the flow of the story. Disliked the concentration on their lust for each other. Didn't appreciate the details on weapons. Neither stopped me from enjoying the tale. ...more

This book was really exciting. From the first word I was drawn into Indigo and Beckett's story. Her son is kidnapped and she will do everything she can to get him back, including kill anyone that stands in her way, even her former co-worker and ex lover.

The book was a roller coaster ride and I enjo ...more

Ms. Burke hits the jackpot once again. With this new publisher and part of the Select Suspense books this book is a winner.

By Trina July 27, 2015

I really enjoyed this book. The story was perfect. Just enough action and love. I love this feisty duo. What got me was the back and forth. At times it dragged for me. I felt I was reading the same problem issues they shared over and over. I was alright with the reminder when they argued. It just se ...more
