Casey Cleburne is the descendant of the great Confederate General, Patrick Cleburne. Beautiful and intelligent, she's a single mom with two boys working as the personal assistant for the newly-elected President of the United States.
Enter Secret Service agent Phillip Henry “Colt” Sheridan IV, the descendant of the renowned Union General, Phil Sheridan – enormous, handsome and brilliant, Colt has earned himself the nickname of “The Anti-Christ” in the ranks of the secret service for his intimidating persona and no-nonsense tactics. Colt is newly assigned as President Talbot's Special Agent in Charge and when the descendants of two great Civil War generals meet face to face for the first time in the halls of the West Wing, sparks fly as the woman the president fondly calls “The General” clashes with the man known as The Anti-Christ.
But the sparks swiftly turn into genuine interest, and Casey and Colt soon find themselves enveloped in a powerful romance. Danger and intrigue lie below the surface, however – although Colt is indeed a Secret Service agent, he is also a double agent for a rogue government branch called The Core. The Core is privy to information that the new president has conducted illegal activities in the past and Colt has been carefully positioned in the president's entourage to uncover enough evidence to impeach the man. Colt's directive is to use anyone he can to accomplish this task and he has been specifically ordered to get close to Casey. Although Colt tries to keep his feelings a bay, he quickly falls in love with the beautiful woman, muddling his drive to complete his mission as he realizes he can't hurt her and he can't use her.

too much unrealistic romance dominated the story. In my mind a kept thinking "seriously" not realistic
Yes, I would because it was filled with danger, suspense and romance!
I loved the narrator's voice, it was filled with realism and suspense till the very end.
Henry McNulty is a new narrator to me!
I never compare books!
None favorite ones, but loved the scenes filled with intrigue and danger lurking...
Amazing Spy fiction!
I am a huge fan of Kathryn Le Veque's books and audios!
An ok story with the main character being a totally wimp! Seriously? No women who has children and is pregnant would try to kill herself because she's heart broken!! Not sure I'll try this author again.
At first I was confused with the prologue of the book. I had no idea what it had to do with the story. Still didn't understand until the end. the book definitely made up for it though and kept my attention the whole time. Great love story that lasted.
