The Kingmaker: A Powerplay Novel
Selena Laurence, author
He's America's golden boy. A power broker. A Kingmaker. She's America's dirty little secret. A sex broker. A scandal maker. Together they are headline news. Lies, deceptions. A Presidency hangs in the balance. Then, there is the chemistry. It's combustible, incendiary, explosive. She. Will. Ruin. Him. He might not care.
Finely tuned political intrigue meets intense sexual chemistry when Washington, D.C., power broker Derek Ambrose catches presidential candidate Jason Melville, one of his clients, having too good a time with London Sharpe, a high-priced escort. Derek is willing to pay a bundle to convince London to stay out of Jason’s life, but soon Derek is obsessing over her himself. She’s happy to take the money and run, since a scandal could ruin her own carefully constructed double life. No one in London’s social circle knows where her money comes from, and in order to stay in business she needs to keep it that way. So when a reporter learns that London spent an afternoon in Jason’s hotel suite, everybody has a lot to lose, and there is only one way to save the day. Laurence’s tightly woven story is a superb mix of sexual and political tension that’s certain to please fans of both. (BookLife)
