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...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from yes! Third book in the Perfect Gentlemen series with the story of Dax Spencer, multimillionaire Navy Captain and one of the six Perfect Gentlemen who met during their seventh grade at Creighton Academy and his soul mate Holland Kirk, who works for NCIS as an investigator. Dax is one of the six Perfect Gentlemen who are now among the most powerful men in America. The others are Connor Sparks (wife Lara) who works for the POTUS heading security, Roman Calder, right hand man to the POTUS, Gabe Bond (wife Everly) billionaire businessman, Zack Hayes,(wife Joy - deceased) POTUS and Maddock Crawford, now deceased billionaire businessman. Dax fell for Holland years ago when he met her at Zack and Joy's wedding. This is a two part book reflecting what occurred years ago to everyone and second part with current events. So much occurs with sniper shoots, betrayals, Russian mob, murders, so many unexplained "accidental deaths.", so many scandals, it is so difficult to figure out the good guys from the bad guys everyone is suspect. This book gets you closer to figuring out who Sergei is and who and what the Russian Mob is after that they are going to expect from Zack. You will wonder why they murdered so many of the Perfect Gentlemen's extended family members and it ends with so many more questions. I enjoyed the story of Dax and Holland and finding some of those answers. Hopefully the next book Smoke and Sin will get us closer to the missing answers.
