When times get crazy, sometimes you just have to turn off the news, load a steamy read onto your iPad and get out of town—even for a day. There’s nothing more sensual than driving down the highway and blasting tunes with the car windows down, the wind in your hair, and a roaring engine between you and the open road…
Nolan Jackson would agree. He’s the smooth-talking charmer who holds the title role in The Southern Gentleman Books 1 + 2. Nolan is a dirty-talking Dominant who likes fast cars, deadly weapons and total control.
He had been a driving enthusiast since the age of fourteen, and lately had found any excuse to hit the open road…Driving was his zen time, his mindless time, when he could forget that this country—his country—had betrayed him, and instead appreciate its sheer, raw beauty…
Nolan is a jaded Washington fixer who gets hired to track down the daughter of a U.S. presidential candidate after she ditches the campaign and disappears. What begins as a routine job turns into the drive of Nolan’s life.
He escorts Lola Randall, America’s favorite political daughter, across the US, dodging sleazy paparazzi and thugs hired by the opposing campaign, all while trying to resist his uncontrollable attraction to the off-limits heiress.
Newly independent Lola needs nothing less than an alpha male trying to take over her life…but she finds herself intrigued and aroused by Nolan’s commanding ways.
“I want something from you, Lola Randall,” he said. “Total honesty. Can you give me that?”
It seemed like a big question, and she wasn’t prepared to answer in her semi-dazed state. “I can try,” she stammered, glancing over her shoulder and catching the predatory look in his eyes.
She counted ten heartbeats, waiting for him to speak.
His voice came low and hoarse. “What would it take to make you give up control?”
He’s brilliant, bossy and likes to be in charge. She’s smart, headstrong and wants her independence. It’s only a matter of time before the chemistry between these two combusts. They’re drawn to each other, but can two opposites make a relationship work?
Nolan and Lola’s road trip across America takes them places neither of them ever imagined, from a hipster party in San Francisco to a swank Los Angeles art gallery, from a smoky pool hall in rural Mississippi to the stage at a celebrity studded benefit concert before 80,000 cheering fans. But most important is the inner journey, the things they learn about themselves as they fall irrevocably in love.
We romance book addicts know the course of true love never runs smoothly. With hired guns at their backs and an Election Eve deadline looming, can Nolan keep Lola safe, conquer her heart and nail the bad guys before the opposition finds a way to steal the White House?
There were serious bad guys to catch, with enough money and power to do very bad things. Nolan would see them beg and plead for mercy before he was done with them. No one fucked with his girl and got away with it.
