That she doesn't share the mayor's politics is her secret, and it's t the only secret she's keeping in conservative Oklahoma City. Madeline Stratton believes that you reap what you sow. Yes, she has allowed her marriage to become one of bitter expedience, but she is devastated by the magnitude and viciousness of her husband's sudden scandal that erupts into off-color headlines and late night comedy routines. When her young staffer offers a hideout one will suspect she gratefully accepts--and finds Jo's sympathy and advice increasingly useful and needed. Until one night feelings far beyond gratitude will longer go away... Politics and passion collide in this debut romance from Riley Scott!
