In the pulse-pounding style of New York Times bestsellers Maya Banks and Lexi Blake comes a new romantic suspense series about sex, politics and scandal…
When a shadowy group intent on stealing the U.S. presidential election targets a leading candidate’s daughter, jaded professional fixer Nolan Jackson is hired to safely escort her across the country to a star-studded Election Eve event. There’s only one problem: She’s ditched the campaign and disappeared… A southern gentleman who likes fast cars, deadly weapons and total control, Nolan is used to winning at all costs. Except in love. Yet, he’ll soon find himself irresistibly drawn to the candidate’s beautiful, naïve daughter.
Sheltered heiress Lola Randall has always played it safe. Now she’s gone rogue. After escaping the media spotlight and her overbearing parents, the last thing she needs in her life is an alpha male. But when Nolan shows her how good it can feel to relinquish control, she begins to secretly crave his domination. Now, she must choose between her independence and falling in love. Because Nolan is determined to win her heart and nail the bad guys before the opposition finds a way to steal the White House.

“I haven’t quite read an erotic romance like this that had so much suspense and sizzling, erotic chemistry…A breathtaking, exciting romance that has some very delicious BDSM…From incredible heart-thumping suspense, to the most wowing eroticism, to the sweet sweet romance, this book does NOT leave you disappointed. It will have you needing to do a reread to capture all that you felt all over again because it was THAT mouthwatering good!”
—Marie’s Tempting Reads
“Ms. Reese has created a love story for all time in this life changing novel brilliantly crafted with both types of readers—the average romance reader and the seasoned player—in mind. The story strikes at the chord of what exists between the two in a Power Exchange. The very real need of a Dominant to protect and cherish and the very real strength of a submissive to release control.”

“You know how you see a book that has a ton of good reviews and you think to yourself, ‘It can’t really be that good, can it?’ Well, I can unequivocally say this book was amazing and worth 5 stars…I would rank Sweden Reese right up there with romantic suspense authors Sylvia Day & Maya Banks.”
“Is it getting hot in here, or is it just me? I feel like this was my personal mantra the entire time I read The Southern Gentleman…There wasn’t a minute I was able to put this book down. Pretty certain I stayed locked up in my room the entire time. This is one book you do not want disruptions for. The thrill, the sexiness, the characters themselves, it was all just a wonderful read that I just didn’t want to end. Both Protective Instinct and True Consequences are easily my top favourite reads right now.”
“The Southern Gentleman books are a must read!! Every single thing about these novels had me on the edge of my seat, tapping my screen, dying to figure out what was going to happen next…Nolan and Lola have the perfect connection. They have the tension and steam between them, however, their connection also runs much deeper.”

“Man, that was a wild ride! These books have the perfect mix of a dirty mouth dominant and sweet Southern Charm…If you are looking for a fast paced, suspenseful novel with one very dominant, dirty alpha then these books just might be for you.”

“I read this duet in one breath. I absolutely couldn’t put it down…It’s a roller coaster ride until the very end. Why? You can find everything from tension and betrayal, dominance and submission to love and feelings so deeply seated that you couldn’t believe these could even exist…And you know that feeling when you have to put the book down because you love your family and you have to do something together? Right at that moment I wanted to cry because I just wanted to know what happened next.”
“I loved how well it was written. I loved that there is wit and intelligence to the story…I loved the mystery and suspense, the fact that there is a true story beneath the story of the couple’s relationship.”
