Dignity…Diligence…Desire… A standalone spin-off trilogy set in the world of the Governor Trilogy. He wants it back… She wants it all… He wants them. A disgraced TV news host, a determined Senator, and a driven Secret Service agent. All have something they want from each other. They’re all determined to get what they want. But will they get what they need?
He wants it back… My name is Kevin Markos, former star anchor for Full News Broadcasting. I say former, because an exhaustion- and frustration-fueled emotional on-air meltdown of apocalyptic proportions means my previously dignified reputation and stellar career as a highly respected conservative TV news host and commentator lay in smoking, irreparable ruins. Only one person will hire me now, and it’s the last person I want to work for—Democratic Senator ShaeLynn Samuels, who’s determined to be the next president of the United States. My reluctance isn’t because of her, but because of who’s working for her—Special Agent Christopher Bruunt, the head of her Secret Service detail. A college spring break trip I thought was safely hidden in my past, even if it never strayed far from my thoughts, now comes back to haunt me. But if I take this job and succeed, it could resurrect my career and put me at the right hand of the most powerful person in the United States. But how much am I personally willing to sacrifice to claw my way back to the top? Because Christopher never forgot that spring break, either. And he has a few agendas of his own.
She wants it all… My name is ShaeLynn Samuels, and all my life I’ve settled for second place to my own mother, who is a political legend in our home state of Florida. So far, I’ve proven myself through several crucibles, and now I’m a US Senator. Many people would be happy with that accomplishment, but not me. Because I want more—I want it all. I’m determined to be POTUS. And if washed-up TV news host Kevin Markos is my best chance to get elected, then by god, I’ll make him to come work for me however I have to. Even if Markos doesn’t want to, and even if it means I turn the head of my Secret Service detail loose on him. Because Special Agent Christopher Bruunt has a secret assignment beyond protecting me—he’s warming my bed. And he has a few plans of his own for Kevin Markos. You see, Christopher and Kevin have a secret history…and Christopher has pictures.
He wants them. When I first met Kevin Markos, we were both drunk college students at Spring Break. It was a week I never expected, and a week I’d never forget. Especially since I took pictures. Unfortunately, life got in the way, careers got in the way…as did Kevin’s miles-deep closet. I thought the only way I’d ever see Kevin again was on a TV screen. But now? He’s desperate, broken, and broke. ShaeLynn Samuels is a unique woman with future plans I want to be a part of. And Kevin never left my heart or my thoughts. Now I have a chance to make both ShaeLynn’s biggest dream come true—and mine. Kevin’s coming along for the ride whether he wants to or not.
