Get wrapped up in "A Political Affair" by Mary Whitney

Whoever said politics was boring, never read Mary Whitney’s “A Political Affair”.

Our Nation loves a scandal, and there’s nothing like the airing out of a politician's closet during an election year. Enter Senator Stephen McEvoy and intern Anne Norwood. What starts as a friendship between two like-minded people becomes mired in scandal as the nation’s capitol learns of the relationship.

No one expected Stephen McEvoy to fill his father’s U.S. Senate seat at such a young age, least of all him. The scion of a revered political dynasty, he’s appointed to the Senate after his father’s untimely death. Now he’s in a tough election battle against an archconservative. When clever Anne Norwood interns in his office, he dismisses her as another pretty face—until her independent streak catches his attention. She soon finds him far more interesting than his Senator McEvoy persona. They’re both too smart to fall for one another, yet they do. Their relationship becomes a political gamble in a tight election, and all the while his opposition lies in wait for him to make a mistake. As Stephen’s past catches up with him, he and Anne must fight for their future. In the heat of an election, no one is above surveillance, rumors, and threats. Campaigns— like love—are either won or lost.

Ms. Whitney manages to weave love, intrigue, drama, and family into a romance that would heat up any election campaign. Readers are given a clear picture of what it means to be in the public eye and have your every move scrutinized and publicized.    

“I love politics, and I relish a good scandal. In writing A Political Affair, I wondered what would happen if the affair was actually a well-intentioned one. What if the pair truly loved one another? How could they get around their situation and actually grow a relationship? And how would the public react once it was disclosed in the middle of an election? I hope I’ve drawn a story that plays that out, while poking fun at the political world. After all, making fun of politicians is always good time,” says Whitney.

Whoever said politics was boring, never read Mary Whitney’s “A Political Affair”.
