Editorial Reviews


"Watch out for this author! Sweden Reese comes storming onto the scene with The Southern Gentlemen. This 2 book series that is one wild, romantic thrill ride, with a sexy, protective alpha and a heroine who probably needs to be saved from herself. The chemistry between Nolan and Lola is off the charts! Jump aboard for the wild ride and prepare to strap on your parachute!"
--Que Sara Sera Book Blog

"I read this duet in one breath. I absolutely couldn't put it down...It's a rollercoaster 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 the 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."
--R. Hollmuller

"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."
--Lives and Loves of a Book Nerd

"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

"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."
--J. Hollar

"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."
--Fictional Sunday

"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."
--My Slanted Bookish Ramblings

From the Author


By Sweden Reese

SET AMID THE DIRTIEST presidential race in U.S. history, The Southern Gentleman Books 1 & 2 are based on a premise that could happen in real life: A shadowy group of billionaires will do whatever it takes to steal the White House--even target the popular adult daughter of the opposing candidate.

And the candidate just happens to be the country's first woman presidential candidate!

If that sounds a little too familiar, I promise you don't need to know (or care) about American politics to enjoy the books. Despite the fast-paced suspense plot lines, the story that begins in The Southern Gentleman: Protective Instinct (Book 1) and completes in The Southern Gentleman: True Consequences (Book 2) is first and foremost a love story.

Books 1 + 2 = The Complete Story. This 2-book story kicks off the Dominant Heroes Collection, a glam new romantic suspense series about sex, politics and scandal. The series revolves around J.Agency, an ultra-exclusive crisis management firm specializing in celebrity scandal and political intrigue.

I'm so excited about the collection of sex god heroes I've planned for this series, and I can't wait to share them with you!

First up is J.Agency CEO Nolan Jackson, a charismatic southern gentleman who likes fast cars, deadly weapons and total control. Nolan is a Dominant in every sense of the word, from the way he handles his business to the way he handles a flogger.

Nolan likes to be in charge and he runs a tight ship. If you like a controlling, possessive alpha male with high-minded principles, twitchy palms, a dirty mouth and a closet full of sex toys, you're going to be begging for Nolan Jackson's punishing touch...

But Nolan isn't all tough love. He has a romantic side. All his life, he's been burning to find that one strong yet submissive Dream Girl who will surrender to him and him alone. A failed marriage and a string of bad relationships have doused but not extinguished the fantasy.

After the most powerful couple in the world hires him to track down their missing daughter and escort her across the country, Nolan finds himself uncontrollably attracted to the beautiful young woman. For a man who likes to be in charge, losing control can only lead to trouble...
