Conner Burke never expected Sofie Callahan to come back.
Where she’s been for the last two and half years is a mystery, and so is the reason she left in the first place. Now, though, she’s back in their hometown of Shelton Bay, South Carolina, at the same time Conner’s band Dirty B is home on a tour break.
Sofie Callahan has spent the months since her father’s death avoiding anything to do with her home town. But with her brother in Afghanistan, she has no choice but to return and sort out her father’s house, even if it means facing the boy she fell in love with and revealing the reason she left.
Conner has questions, and when his broken heart and her guilty one collide, Sofie has to start answering them. Their present is rocky, their future unknown. Only one thing is certain:
Sofie’s daughter will change everything.

I was first introduced to Emma Hart when I read Wild Temptation, then of course Wild Addiction and LOVED Them. I said to myself, this chick can write! She keeps it hot and steamy, funny and serious all at the same time! She certainly knows how to create strong male characters that are sexy, charming and strong. Did I mention SEXY? So now we have the Burke Brothers and with the way these boys are I just know they all have a story to tell.
In Dirty Secret we get to know Sofie Callahan and Conner Burke, just one of the sexy Burke Brothers. Sofie and Conner were total high school sweethearts and up until a little over 2 years ago were inseparable. Dirty B is Conner and his brother’s band and they were about to hit it big, then all the sudden Sophie took off. POOF gone, no one knew where she went.
Now years later, after her father’s death she shows back up in Shelton Bay, South Carolina but she is not alone. She has a little girl named Mila with her and she is Sofie’s sole focus. Is she Conner’s? Is that the reason she left or does she have another reason? Not back in town for two days on a tour break and Conner hears about her return. Of course, he goes ballistic. He wants to know why she just up and left him with a broken heart.
Once he showed up on her doorstep, things were about to get real. You know rockstars, always followed by paparazzi, never left alone so of course as hard as you try, EVERYTHING becomes public eventually no matter how hard to try to hide it….. EVERYTHING.
“You’re right” he whispers huskily in my ear. “I do care about perfect- but not your idea of perfect. I care about my perfect….”
Once Conner learns Sofie’s secrets will he be able to forgive her? Can they get a chance out of the limelight to make a go at it again? Both never lost their love for each other but some things may not be able to be forgotten, but possibly forgiven? Can one’s idea of perfect be enough?
I can tell you I think I am already in love with the entire Burke Family. The banter between them all and even with Sofie cracks me up. I think each have their own story to tell and can’t wait to hear them. This is certainly a series I think everyone would love!
