Sex. Lies. Greed. Power. Scandal. Politics.
This is my first political romance and my second Jeanne McDonald novel. I was expecting this to be a good story based on my prior experience with the author’s work. ‘Politically Incorrect” gave me insight into the happenings of the US political arena. It demonstrated the underhanded tactics that some politicians would employ in an effort to besmirch their opponent character.
I admired the heroine in this book. From the moment I met her I knew I would love her. She is a divorcee and a single mom who has experienced a lot of adversities, but as managed to come out on top. She is feisty, strong, independent and powerful. She is a great political strategist and it was for that reason she was hired to manage Congressman William Baxter’s campaign for a seat in the Senate.
William Baxter was not your typical politician. He was honest which is a unique trait within the political arena. Elizabeth was skeptical of his persona at first as in all her years as a political strategist, she has never encountered a politician who was completely honest. As such she had a hard time believing that William is all that he purported to be. However, the more time she spent with him she came to
The attraction between Elizabeth and William was instantaneous. Elizabeth fought hard to keep her feelings for William at bay as she feared to cross professional boundaries. Yielding to temptation would certainly create a scandal which her client could ill-afford. Added to that was their age difference which she considered to be a major issue. Will she be able to stand firm in her decision or will she succumb to the attraction and find love in the arms of a young and promising politician?
This book had all the ingredients that made for an exciting story.
If you love romance stories that are centred around the political arena, then you will love ‘Politically Incorrect’.
