More than a decade ago, Roman Calder had a scorching affair with the sister of one of his best friends. Augustine Spencer drove him so crazy he thought of nothing but her. The only thing they did more often than heat the sheets was fight. Unprepared for the intensity of their relationship, Roman broke things off and concentrated on the things that made sense to him: his career and putting his best friend, Zack Hayes, in the White House.

Gus Spencer is known to Washington insiders as the president’s secret weapon. Gorgeous and brilliant, Gus runs the press pool with the determination of a shark. No one dares to cross her, not when she’s known for having a spine of steel. But long ago one man melted her down. Despite the fact that she’ll never forgive Roman for breaking her heart, now that they work together she can’t get him off her mind.

When a dangerous investigation leads both Roman and Gus to London, the heat between them becomes unbearable. As they begin to unravel an international conspiracy, they find themselves falling all over again. But when a killer threatens their world, can they fight to stay together or will the sins of their past keep them forever apart?

When it comes to romantic suspense, Shayla Black and Lexi Blake are the absolute PROS! Whether they are writing individually or as a team, nobody brings us sex, excitement, and danger quite like this pair! There’s passion. There’s heart-pumping suspense. It’s romance at its finest with enough grit and raw sensuality to have you blushing for days. Black and Blake are my GO TO authors in the romance genre, period. And every single new release they present to the world, makes me fall harder than the one before. This dynamic duo brings PURE MAGIC to the romance community and as a reader, I’m telling you, your life will be changed once you dive into their worlds. 

“Nothing has ever made me feel as alive as you.”

Her eyes had gone cold. ”And no one has ever broken me the way you did, Roman.”

SMOKE AND SIN is book #4 in The Perfect Gentlemen Series. This is a romantic suspense series that MUST BE read in order. Each book features a different couple, but it’s an ongoing complex storyline throughout the series. Be warned that when you start this series, there is NO turning back. You WILL become addicted, hooked, and obsessed! SMOKE AND SIN brings us Roman Calder and Gus (Augustine) Spencer – two of the most STUBBORN characters in this series, which of course makes for a FANTASTIC love story. There’s obvious chemistry the first AND second go-round. There’s the push/pull aspect that makes you tingle all over. They are super INTENSE, super PASSIONATE, and they will make you FEEL all sorts of wonderful things. Of course, there is danger around every corner, but Gus is a woman who can handle her own, so it’s so fun to watch these two fight for control. It makes the surrender and the passionate moments that much sweeter.

“God, she tasted like heaven, like something sweet and forbidden. Like precious memories he’d forgotten. Like perfection.”

Two AMAZING characters. One UNDENIABLE connection. A SECOND CHANCE they never knew they wanted. SMOKE AND SIN was absolute PERFECTION!
