No one expected Stephen McEvoy to fill his father’s U.S. Senate seat at such a young age, least of all him. The scion of a revered political dynasty, he’s appointed to the Senate after his father’s untimely death. Now he’s in a tough election battle against an archconservative. When clever Anne Norwood interns in his office, he dismisses her as another pretty face—until her independent streak catches his attention. She soon finds him far more interesting than his Senator McEvoy persona. They’re both too smart to fall for one another, yet they do. Their relationship becomes a political gamble in a tight election, and all the while, his opposition lies in wait for him to make a mistake. As Stephen’s past catches up with him, he and Anne must fight for their future. Their lives mean more than politics, and campaigns—like love—are either won or lost.
An intriguing, well written novel that has you from page one.
The characters and the setting are beyond what anyone would expect from a book. Ms. Whitney has totally out done herself!
I truly found myself falling for Senator Stephen McEvoy myself, but who wouldn't....with his charismatic self. Intelligent and romantic, just what every woman wants.
When Anne Norwood comes on the scene, I knew from that first few lines where things were going to go....it's just as if you are sitting there at the table with the rest of the interns....AWESOME!
She is everything thing he wants....Lovely, smart, ambitious...but everything he doesn't need with a re-election coming up.
The numbers are too close!
All through out this novel you find yourself giddy to worried to on the edge of your seat....to the end.
Chemistry is a strong thing!
One of my top ten books of the year!
