Jamie McAlister has resigned herself to the fact that in
this job market, her painfully expensive degree might only get her a position
at Starbucks, when she suddenly lands a prestigious internship at the White
House. Although she doesn’t hit it off with the other interns—lockjaws who come
from so much money that ten weeks without a paycheck doesn’t faze them—she is
eager to work hard and make the best of the opportunity while it lasts.
An unexpected encounter late one evening with the
charismatic President Gregory Rutland seems like just a fleeting flirtation,
but when he orchestrates clandestine meetings and late-night phone calls, their
relationship quickly escalates. Jamie knows what she is doing is wrong: he’s
married, he has kids, he’s the president. Yet each time she tries to extricate
herself, Greg pulls her back in.
With the conflicted desires of the most powerful man in the
world driving her to her breaking point, Jamie can’t help but divulge intimate
details to those closest to her. But she must have confided in the wrong
person, because she soon finds herself, and everyone she cares about, facing
calculated public destruction at the hands of Greg’s political enemies
and—perhaps no matter how much he cares about her—at the hands of Greg himself. Download and start listening now!
