My apologies to any readers who’ve tried to access my website this past month. I recently noticed the “Website Suspended” page and feared the site had been highjacked! Thankfully, it was all my own fault. LOL. Happy to be back online now.
Life it good with the Barker family. I’m wishing the same for all of you. Enjoy the summer and happy reading.
Coming soon (as I finish it 😉 TRUSTING ADAM
My latest release, WESTERN DREAMS
Western Dreams is a sexy, humorous western romance. It has a lighter, family oriented theme but with lots of steam between Reece and Bree! The official release date is February 26, 2021. After that date, you can read an excerpt at online bookstores. The audiobook is already in the works, so I hope to make that available soon, too. As always, happy reading!
Bree Conley is back at the Blackstone ranch and Reece Blackstone is at the end of his rope. Maybe he loved her once but that’s in the past, and now she’s a total distraction. How can he get any work done when Bree’s so beautiful, so sassy and so tempting?
Bree has no intention of rekindling their romance. She has new dreams to fulfill, which includes turning the neighboring ranch into a wildlife sanctuary. Maybe, if he’s lucky, she’ll take Reece for a walk on the wild side…
5* at Amazon: “Seldom does a book the caliber of this read come along, and I fell totally in love with it. A second chance romance that grabs your heart and refuses let go until the last word is read, and then you can only hope the author writes a sequel because you just cannot get enough of Reese, Bree, and the Blackstone family. The electricity between Reece and Bree arcs so high at times I was worried it would stop my heart. Delightful from beginning to end, filled with love, laughter and family.”
DEEPER THAN LOVE.
Billionaire in Pursuit…
After being framed for embezzlement, Ciara Jayne Moore fled her executive position as well as her lover, Wyatt Marcum, to start a new life in southern California. There she manages an elegant, but aging seaside resort. The only thing she wants now is to put the past and man out of her mind. He’d let her down when she badly needed his support, and she didn’t think she’d ever trust him again.
Ciara’s disappearance from Marcum International’s Manhattan office had CEO Wyatt Marcum and his security staff scrambling. Despite their considerable resources, it took five months to track her. Wyatt had his private jet in the air less that six hours later. He needed to explain his actions and trap the people who’d stolen from him. But first he had to break through the indifferent attitude she wore like armor. Read an Excerpt. Purchase links: Kindle Nook Apple/iTunes Kobo
Some early reviews:
“This book grabbed me from the very first line. Fast paced and tightly woven, the emotional journey with Ciara and Wyatt is riveting. Becky Barker set the bar high and then she exceeded it. I am just in love with this book.” Sue B
“These two complex characters have created layers of emotional protection to guard their hearts. Will Wyatt be able to expose his vulnerable side? Will Ciara allow him back into her life so they can have their HEA? Or, will the accusations of the embezzlement always hinder their future?” Yvonne
UNDERCOVER LOVE (Rewritten, retitled and reissued)
Retired FBI agent Kyle Tremont reluctantly agreed to one last job as a favor to his former boss. His mission was to extract an agent by the code name ‘Phantom’ from a deep undercover assignment. And the plan went smoothly until their identities were compromised. On the run with a sexy, yet mysteriously innocent operative, he found her more intriguing by the minute. Which meant the sooner he delivered her to safety and made his way home to Texas, the better! Phantom, aka Rianna Sullivan, had trained for years to bring down the man who’d destroyed her family, but nothing had prepared her for the impact of working with an FBI legend. The bond of trust they forged was fierce, the attraction between them even fiercer, but what they shared had to be temporary. As they fought side by side for justice, she wondered what it would be like to keep him longer…
I’m happy to announce that UNDERCOVER LOVE is now available at Audible.com in audiobook format! Email me for complimentary codes.

5 star review – “Let me start and say, I am a HUGE Becky Barker fan. I came across her a few years ago and she became a huge obsession. I devoured her back list in a very short time. So when she has a new release it is like Christmas to me. I jumped at the chance to review Chey’s Cowboy and I absolutely loved it.” Rhayne, GuiltyPleasuresBookReviews
“CHEY’S COWBOY is a fast paced read that captures the imagination, engages the senses and even provides a little life lesson. Chey and Trace are wonderful characters who are dealing with their own personal demons and fears while trying to build a relationship… you get caught up in the story and don’t make a move until you’ve read every last word.” Chrissy Dionne (courtesy of Romance Junkies)
“He’s handsome, hot, hunted and hurt…a plea for help from this undercover detective is one her nurse’s heart can’t refuse.“
