Fans of Scandal, House of Cards, and The Good Wife will love Grace Colton...

U.S. Congresswoman Grace Colton is the most famous woman in politics—and the loneliest—until a drawling, sexy stranger offers her one night: no strings and no regrets. And it rocks her world.

Grace wakes to an empty hotel room and a phone call. The dark horse for the 2016 presidential election, Senator Shep Conover, is considering her as his vice presidential running mate.

Before she can be selected, Grace must be vetted and coached by Shep’s political consultant, Jared Rankin, who already knows too many intimate details about her. He’s Mr. One-Night Stand.

Grace is torn: play nice with Jared to join the senator’s ticket, or play hardball and back the slick frontrunner? As the Democratic National Convention approaches, Grace must decide where her loyalties lie and if she can trust Jared with her future—and her heart.

The Phoenix Candidate is an erotic romance set in the world of presidential election politics. Recommended for mature readers due to sharp dialogue, wickedly hot sex, and a few delicious taboos. This full-length novel is first in a series and can be read as a standalone.

Would definitely take you THERE.

A powerful woman. A man who doesn't take no for an answer. What is in-store in their future?

The beginning of the story already had me panting, and I didn't think panties would be necessary, it would just be a waste of laundry.

You will love Grace Colton.

She became a US Congresswoman after a tragedy struck her life. She made herself a household name after fighting for issues that are controversial. Despite this, she's a lonely woman.

One night, a sexy stranger offers her one night: no strings and no regrets.

And her world was never the same again. It was one hot night...

He was someone who wanted control, and she was someone who was ready to give it, 

but first, 

she needed to make sure to protect her privacy. 

Because in the world of politics, every man was on his own. One wrong move, and every single hard work she made will be forgotten, and the only thing people will remember will be her transgression.

She woke up the following day, on an empty bed and a phone-call. One of the candidates for presidential for 2016 is considering her for her running mate. But before she gets selected, she must be vetted and coached by Shep's political consultant, Jared Rankin - her Mr. One-night stand. 

It started the whirlwind in her life. She wanted to make that change, to be the vice-president, but not at the expense of her principles and of her heart. The people should want her because of what she did, not what she projected in the media. And this what made me admire this woman. 

She had been through the toughest time, and it's hard when it gets retold every now and then. However, she never forgets why she got elected in the first place, and although she got a little bit side-tracked because of all the people who wanted her on their ticket, in the end, she stood her ground.

And there's Jared, the one who caused her world to tilt. He's an enigma. I wasn't sure if he's the enemy or not, if he really wants what is best for her. But he's so freaking hot, and knows which button to push. He has some issues though, and I wanted to know desperately what his deal was. Although, what he did? Especially at the end of the novel was completely swoon-worthy, and worth the wait. 

Strong Heroines, amazing plot, and hot sex = perfect combination to warm your cold night.
