Jean-Luc Cavalier has only ever cared about three things: sex, booze, and the dangerous missions he undertakes with HORNET. Laissez les bons temps rouler is more than a Mardi Gras motto—it’s the way he lives his life. But all that changes the night he rescues Dr. Claire Oliver from deadly mercenaries.

Now he can’t get the gorgeous blond virologist out of his head.

Claire is running for her life. Someone wants her antiviral research and they’re willing to kill anyone and everyone to get it. She has no one to turn to except a womanizing Cajun with a silver tongue and devastating smile.

But when an ultra-deadly virus decimates the Niger Delta, saving Claire and her research becomes the least of HORNET’s concerns. The virus has all the markings of a bioweapon and Nigeria is only the testing grounds…

Each book in the HORNET series is a standalone story that can be enjoyed out of order.

Lots of suspense, action, and romance make this a great read!” –Rose M., NetGalley

“I'm delirious. I just finished this book and I'll be lucky if I can form complete sentences. I loved this book! I'm a little in lust with Jean-Luc anyway, that crazy Cajun and this just sent me right over the edge. It's a white knuckle kindle gripping ride as Jean-Luc goes after the woman that has captured his heart, Claire Oliver.” – Lori Z., Goodreads

A thrill ride into another third-world environment and the dark world of bioterrorism, corruption, and greed. A favorite amongst HORNET readers, Jean-Luc finally gets his chance to shine and charm the ladies. That said... let the good times roll, mon ami!” – HEA Chapter

Asi que ... Estoy enamorada. De Jean - Luc. De Claire. De la historia. De todos los personajes de esta saga, no hay ni una sola cosa de estas novelas que no me tenga completamente encantada.

When the training mission in Martinique went south in the last book, Jean-Luc Cavalier risked his life for Dr. Claire Oliver and told her to run. She was the target of a deadly group determined to steal her ground-breaking research and samples of Akeso, an anti-virus panacea. Trouble is that Claire ...more

By ♥ WishfulMiss ♥ April 24, 2018

My latest obsession seems to be the brainiac/nerdy heroine and the sexy/dangerous Hero trope. So when I saw this cover and read the blurp I was hooked. A virologist being targeted for her ground breaking research and the hot for her former CIA turned private hostage and rescue linguist that follows ...more

ARC received for review

Jean-Luc chases Dr. Claire to Africa and then they fall in love in the middle of an outbreak of a very, very deadly virus and bad guys trying to take her research and kill everyone. Jean-Luc is all kinds of sexy and perfect for Claire.

Now what stupid thing is he (can't tell y ...more

Amo a Jean Luc con la fuerza de los mares, me vuelven loca los tipos como él.

By Sarah April 27, 2018

I've been a fan of Jean-Luc since the beginning of this series, he's that kind of fun-loving, irresistible ladies man who you just know would break your heart but you can't help falling for anyway. He's charming, funny and would be great company but he's never been one for sticking around in the pas ...more

> > Judging a Book by it's Cover < <
This cover continues with the darker, edgier, cold and broody feel. While the covers fit the often darker subjects that Ms. Burrows delves into, they are dramatic but flat visually. Unfortunately, if not for the author, I'm not ...more

By Between My April 28, 2018

No one, and I mean no one, can write better adrenaline-fueled bad-assery than Tonya Burrows! Her heroes are flawed, hot, alpha and, well, badass. In this story, the hard-drinking, women-loving, brilliant linguist and “Ragin Cajun” Jean Luc Cavalier gets his front and center to flex his hero muscles ...more

Having read a couple of this authors books I am always on the look out for them with success once in awhile like this one. Having one of those books been in this series makes this one sweet for sure.

He’ll do anything to save and ...more

Jean Luc es un personaje que siempre me ha gustado. Su carácter alegre y risueño da ese toque divertido a una serie con grandes dosis de violencia. ¿Me ha gustado su historia? Sí, me ha gustado; sobre todo la primera mitad de la novela me ha encantado por lo bien que la autora ha logrado dar continu ...more

I took a risk with this book, as I hadn't read the previous books in the series, but I'm really glad I did! It was a fast-paced medical mystery with lots of action, adventure, and steamy romance. I loved the main characters, and even the bad guys had a lot of drama going on behind the scenes. The st ...more

I received Reckless Horner by Tonya Burrows through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

If you enjoy your books fast paced, action packed, with a fun steamy romance look no further. That's exactly what this book is. Whether you have read previous HORNET books or not, you'll enjoy Jean-Luc's story. Always the joking playboy, Jean-Luc finds himself inexplicably drawn to Dr. Claire Oliver ...more

This was such a fantastic romantic suspense read. There were moments when I did not know how Tonya was going to make things work for Claire and Jean-Luc. I also loved seeing all the past characters and how they all worked together like the family that they are.

I can't wait to see what else Tonya ha ...more

Jean-Luc I found to be adorable, I mean you're not supposed to describe a manly-man as adorable but Jean-Luc just was, “right. Alors pas.
