Southern Gentleman, an all-new full length standalone contemporary romance by Jessica Peterson is LIVE!

COVER .jpg

I know two things when I meet my new boss, Greyson Parker Montgomery III.

One, he’s an egomaniac.

And two, we’re going to get naked.

Something I didn’t know? That I’d end up pregnant.

No one is more surprised by our off-the-charts chemistry than me. I’m a free spirit with a passion for design and a taste for the bohemian. Greyson is a cocky venture capitalist who’s as pretentious as his sharply cut power suits.

He owns half of Charleston, and has the other half at his beck and call. But the only place he owns me is in bed…or in the backseat of his car, boneless and begging for mercy.

We argue over contracts and costs all day long. Behind closed doors, however, we engage in a different kind of business. The kind that has me surrendering to his unique brand of dominance.

Our no-strings attached arrangement suits me just fine. Until I wake up one morning with what I think is a wicked hangover.

Only it’s not a hangover.

I thought Greyson was a typical “greed is good” grump. But when he demands to be involved in the life we accidentally created, I start to see a different side of him. One that’s more gentleman than jerk.

Am I crazy to think we could be a family together? Or is making me fall for him just another one of his power plays?

A stand-alone, contemporary romance.



This is the third book in the Charleston Heat series. It is a complete standalone. Each book is about a separate couple, with interconnected characters. Honestly, I had mixed feelings going into this book. On one hand I really loved the other two books in this series. On the other hand, I’m not a fan of accidental pregnancy books. I had faith in this book and this author, so I jumped right in, and I’m glad I did. This book was so well written. It was a different take on a typical trope. I love the journey of their story. They learn to adjust the path they are on, while they are learning about each other. The challenges they faced were handled in a mature and realistic way.

Greyson is a grumpy, workaholic, on the verge of being a complete a**hole, alpha male. There are so many layers to him. Once you crack that hard shell you start to see the sweet and gooey side of him. You will be swooning in no time.

Julia is one of the female characters I love to read. She is strong, independent, and capable. She takes what happens to her and deals with it in a believable way. She does have her own vulnerabilities also, but they seem so real and raw. Together, they are explosive. Even then they were “enemies”, their chemistry leapt off the page.

This book is a sexy, steamy story that is also sweet and swoony, with a healthy dose of southern charm. You should definitely be added to your TBR pile!
