In the new book by Margaret Garrison, “Prez: A Story of Love” (published by Abbott Press), a high-ranking female university official falls in love with a married man, resulting in major internal conflict.

Katherine Embright is chancellor of North Carolina’s Wickfield University during an era when female executives had to fight for equal recognition. When she discovers she has colon cancer, she decides to keep her illness a secret from the public eye.

But the one person who can help her maintain privacy is Paul Stafford, the security officer who ignites her romantic feelings. As their relationship grows, Katherine faces the moral implications of a head-versus-heart dilemma. Will this secret relationship threaten her reputation and legacy?

“Prez” takes the reader behind the ivy walls of academia into the real-life drama of the human heart. Themes of romantic passion, devotion to family and spiritual grace permeate the pages of this debut romantic fiction.
