Publisher's Summary

Presidential candidate Jane Kincaid - gorgeous, dynamic and extremely driven - is taking the country by storm, passionately outlining her blueprint for America. Voters quickly fall in love with her...and so, unwittingly, does Secret Service Agent Alexandria Warner. 

Their mutual attraction begins to take on a fiery life of its own, and soon Jane fears that their intense feelings for each other are a tinder box that could destroy the landscape of her career...and alter the history of the country. 

Jane had always expected the road to the White House would exact a high personal toll. She just never knew how high...until she's forced to choose between her heart and her political destiny.

Perfect way to kick off Jane and Alex story..

Enjoyed reading this book and the follow up book The Campaign and decided to support the audio because of Lori Prince who once again does an amazing job. Truly enjoyed listening to Jane and Alex love develope and Jane’s mom Maria is a bonus of sweetness. It’s an easy listen and flows the entire time. Well worth a credit or purchase. I Highly recommend this audio, Ms. Richardson books always leave me pleased and I often reread or listen to audio of her books. Looking forward to listening to The Campaign as well.

To assure her security, Secret Service Agent Alex Warner is assigned to be her close protection agent. After only days, Alex is in live and enthralled with Jane. Life gets in the way and Alex has to pull herself off the detail. Will they ever be able to admit their love. A great story about the sacrifice of service to the country. Recommend.

Not the best voices

The voice for Alex basically ruined this book for me. I wish the narrator had not tried to make Alex’s voice so deep with a forced southern accent. It could have been much more subtle and make the performance way better.

Not a bad story

I just couldn't call in love with the characters. Lori Prince can be good but shine of her voices are a bit annoying in this one. I think this one might br better as a book.

I loved this book

And I am looking forward to listening to the sequel. I loved the characters, and narration is always great when Lori Prince is at the mike. But, it is time to write about non left “liberal” democrat lesbians, it is time to talk about a republican lesbian, or to push less the agenda of democrats, I am sure there are republican lesbians at least in the same ration to those in the democrat side. I am not a political woman but I would like to read a WLW book who is more conservative, without converting them to the “liberal side...
