Robert is just ending his term of being the Mayor of New York City. There must be a party to celebrate his good work. Doesn't hurt that he is thinking of running for Governor too. The people seem to like him and he is good at this job.
Adeline, trying to make the party for Robert, is fighting the feelings she is starting to feel for him. It is a madhouse to go back into the slippery slope that is politics. When he finds out who her father is this whole scenario will be worse. Since he is the first man to make her feel in years should she take a chance?
I absolutely loved the story. Fast paced, with corners of darkness shadowing the light, I loved the characters and their weaknesses that were showing. There was banter, and sexual innuendo and frustration at first. All the more titillating and the sparks were humming as we read the first half. The second half, however, is where the real scandal lies. I give this great read a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
