Release Date: May 3, 2016
The New York Times bestselling authors of the Masters of Ménage series present the third scintillating novel featuring the privileged, wealthy, wild men of Creighton Academy—the Perfect Gentlemen.
Years ago, Naval officer Dax Spencer and NCIS agent Holland Kirk indulged in a steamy affair—until she betrayed him in the wake of his father’s death. Dax tried to put her behind him with a payback of his own. But he never forgot Holland…
Now, as Dax and his fellow Perfect Gentlemen unravel a web of lies, he discovers his family’s tragedy is part of a much larger conspiracy. Soon, all clues point him back to New Orleans…where Holland waits, protecting her deadly secret and holding a torch for the only man she’s ever loved.
Once reunited, they can’t fight the passion flaring hot and wild. But something sinister lurks around every corner, from the elegance of the Garden district to the beauty of the bayou. Dax and Holland may find their way back to each other—if they survive...
And now, it’s Dax’s turn. If I wasn’t already in love with him—one, because of his name and two, because he is a Perfect Gentleman—I would be after about five percent of this book! Holy smokes!! He could charm me right out of my panties.
Dropdead good looks—check.
A bit mysterious—check.
The WHOLE package—check, check!
I don’t think there is anything else I would want in a man. The chemistry between Holland Kirk and Dax Spencer is off the charts and burns white hot. From the streets of NOLA to the history of the two, and all the twists and turns that occurred in their relationship, we are headed full steam ahead towards disaster… or are we?
This winding road, which brings us one step closer to solving the puzzle of a much larger conspiracy involving all the men—Zach, Gabe, Connor and Dax—kept me turning pages at an insanely rapid rate. I was on a quest to figure out the whodunnit’s and the why’s of the mystery, but the extreme, integral relationships of all the characters kept me on my toes.
I’m so in love with the characters, the plot, the ever-evolving story line, I sit on the precipice of a cliff, constantly waiting for what happens next. As the words flow effortlessly, I’m able to visualize the scenes on a movie real in my brain. So, who will be your Dax?
~ Review by Heather
Three years ago, in the wake of his father’s scandalous affair and subsequent death, Dax Spencer found comfort in the arms of Holland Kirk. Holland and Dax had a quick, steamy affair that ended when Holland’s betrayal came to light. After cutting all ties, Dax is thrust back into Holland's life when more details of the conspiracy surrounding the deaths of some of the Perfect Gentlemen’s loved ones come to light.
Holland is an NCIS agent stationed in New Orleans, and all current clues point Dax in that direction. Dax doesn't realize Holland's been keeping a secret from him for all this time—one that could prove deadly. As Dax and Holland get reacquainted, they can't deny their feelings, but as more details of the conspiracy are revealed, will Dax and Holland survive long enough to truly reunite?
Man, oh man, I love this series. I cannot get enough to of Dax, Zack, Connor, Roman and Gabe! And I adore strong-minded, determined female leads—Holland is amazing, and so is Dax. I love the two of them together and was heartbroken when circumstances split them apart. I found myself silently cheering for them to work it all out—I had to keep turning the pages to find out where things between them ended up, because it could have gone either way. Now I'm dying to read Roman and Gus’ story!
