Privileged, wealthy, and wild: they are the Perfect Gentlemen of Creighton Academy. But the threat of a scandal has one of them employing his most deceptive--and seductive--talents...
Recruited into the CIA at a young age, Connor Sparks knows how dirty the world can be. Only when he's with his friends can he find some peace. So when an anonymous journalist threatens one of the Perfect Gentlemen, Connor vows to take down the person behind the computer, by whatever means necessary--even if it means posing as his target's bodyguard.
Publishing a tabloid revealing Washington's most subversive scandals has earned Lara Armstrong the ire of the political scene--and a slew of death threats. To keep herself from ending up a headline, Lara hires a bodyguard, a man as handsome as he is lethal.
When the bullets start to fly, Lara is surprised to find herself in Connor's arms. But as they begin to unravel a mystery that just might bring down the White House, Lara is devastated when she discovers Connor's true identity--and finds herself at the mercy of forces who will stop at nothing to advance their deadly agenda.

Bestselling authors Black and Blake create red-hot erotic romance on their own, and offer extra-special spice when they team up. Their second Perfect Gentleman novel (after Scandal Never Sleeps) is no exception. CIA agent Connor Sparks grew up as the poor kid on scholarship at one of the nation's most exclusive prep schools, where he garnered a tight-knit band of rich and influential friends, including one who ended up becoming president of the United States. Liberal crusader Lara Armstrong is a senator's daughter who runs an extremely explosive political blog—and, as a result, someone wants her dead. When Connor steps in to keep the petite beauty alive, the last thing he expects is that she'll steal his heart. On the surface, the hard-edged agent and the progressive activist wouldn't be expected to get along, but their chemistry is off the charts. Despite a slight tangle of red herrings near the end, this book captivates and will have readers eagerly awaiting the next tale. Agent: for Black, Kimberly Whalen, Trident Media Group; for Blake, Merrilee Heifetz, Writers House. (Jan.)
