Northern Escape

Northern Rescue Book 1

Brielle Ives prefers dogs to people, and who could blame her? Her sled dogs are loyal to a fault, trust her implicitly, and couldn’t care less about the scars that mar her face. The only human who’s never disappointed her is her mentor, Dr. William Hunter. When his plane goes missing in the remote Alaskan wilderness, Bree will do anything to find him . . . even if it means turning to a frustrating, irresponsible, and too-sexy-for-his-own-good California boy for help.

When Ellis Hunter enlisted in the Army at eighteen, he put Alaska—and his womanizing drunk of a father—in his rearview mirror. He promised himself he’d never return, but even he can’t resist Bree’s panicked plea for help. If she’s hell-bent on trekking into the bush to find his father, then he’s determined to go with her. But Ellis isn’t the only one shadowing Bree’s rescue attempt…

When the search for answers leaves Ellis and Bree trapped together in the wilds of Alaska, they’ll have to put aside their differences—and an attraction hot enough to melt glaciers—to survive the elements. Because someone dangerous lurks in that icy wilderness—a killer desperate to keep Dr. William Hunter’s secrets buried deep in the snow.


“No one, and I mean no one, can write better adrenaline-fueled bad-assery than Tonya Burrows!”

August Update on Northern Deception

I’m so sorry but I’m not releasing Northern Deception yet. I’m still not happy with it and it’s not going out into the world until it’s something I can be proud of. This book has been stressing me out for several months now because it’s just not any good. I tried to...

Update on Northern Deception: I screwed up. I’m sorry.

I screwed up. I'm sorry. You may have noticed an email recently from Amazon stating that all preorders have been canceled for Northern Deception. It was a hard decision, but I couldn't in good conscience release the book. Life's been getting in the way the last few...

Los Angeles, California When the 907-area code first popped up on Ellis Hunter’s phone, he was busy. The kind of busy that left a guy naked in bed with a beautiful woman, indulging in one of his favorite activities.  Had he not been otherwise occupied he still...
