The Gentleman series

The Gentleman series features a duet of steamy small-town romances with plenty of heat. Clothes will come off. Satisfaction will be found. Declarations of love will be made. And there just might be a cuss word or five.

Her Shirtless Gentleman (Book #1)


Her heart is in his hands.

Her Shirtless Gentleman: Gentleman series Book 1 by M.Q. Barber -- a steamy small-town romance

After her marriage ends in betrayal, Eleanora Howard finds herself struggling to navigate the dating scene as a thirty-one-year-old divorcee. Living alone in the house she once shared with her ex and feeling undesirable beside her younger coworkers is hardly the recipe for finding new love—until she meets Rob. He’s just the kind of charming, old-fashioned guy she needs—but he’s also eager for intimacy.

After serving in the Air Force and landing a well-paid civilian job, Rob Vanderhoff planned to settle down with the right woman and raise a family. But at thirty-six, he’s still single and searching—until he meets Eleanora. She’s everything he wants. All he has to do is draw her out of her shell. Soon he’s taking her on the kind of dates she dreamed about as a teenager, fanning the flames of her desire—and helping Nora rediscover the sexy, adventurous woman they both know she really is.

A 61,000-word standalone steamy small-town romance.

An Accidental Gentleman (Book #2)


He’s on pause. She’s all play.

An Accidental Gentleman: Gentleman series Book 2 by M.Q. Barber -- a steamy small-town romance

Kit Runyon isn’t looking for a man to keep—she’s happy with the occasional one-night stand and no strings. Making sure her family’s appliance repair shop is profitable enough to support three generations is her main focus. But when Brian Hendricks walks into her life, one look, one word, and she knows he’s not wired like any man she’s ever met before.

Brian is attracted to Kit’s strength and no-nonsense attitude, but he’s tired of the one-and-done dating scene. He’s ready to settle down with the right woman, even if that means he’ll have to play things slow and stay out of her bed to show her there’s more to love than brain-melting sex. But at this rate, he’s liable to blow all of the fuses between them.

A 61,000-word standalone steamy small-town romance.
