Ambition. Lust. Sacrifice. Politics just got a whole lot sexier.
Grace Colton’s life is a blur—security, appearances, and a desperately fast ramp-up to Election Day. Political consultant Jared Rankin is pulling the strings to win the White House with the Conover-Colton ticket.

But the fragile relationship Grace and Jared forged could be ruined by secrets traded for political leverage. She’s hiding her new relationship with Jared from the public, and concealing a deeper secret from everyone.

When Grace reveals the explosive truth to her running mate, squeaky-clean Senator Conover must confront his own haunted past. Grace’s future—and their campaign—could be ruined by the lies meant to protect what they love most.

Peek behind the curtain and under the covers in this sexy political drama that exposes the true cost of ambition, lust and sacrifice.

The Phoenix Campaign is an erotic romance set in the world of presidential election politics. Recommended for mature readers due to sharp dialogue, wickedly hot sex, and a few delicious taboos. This full-length novel is second in a series but can be read as a stand alone..

The Phoenix Campaign has us back in the race to the big Oval Office and its one heck of a marathon. Things pick up right where we were left from The Phoenix Candidate and of course since we’re talking politics there was not a shortage of scandals, secrets, lies, backstabbing. It was one of the go get the popcorn because it’s going down.With that said I had mixed emotions with this one. The writing and storyline once again captured my attention. Not only were the characters well developed, but they also dragged so much emotion from me. There were some moments where I felt it was too much .

I’ll start with Congresswoman Grace Colton, this woman has to be a PR nightmare she makes me absolutely without a doubt bat sh*t crazy. This lady had the ability to make me growl, do the muffled scream, and my favorite the fist clenching. Her fearlessness is a quality I’m sure every mother hopes her daughter has. She never backed down, even when it was in her best interest. She had this family first, mama bear quality her that made her like, unfortunately it was not enough the overshadow her stubbornness. That headstrong trait was not only applied to her work, but her “situationship” she had with her former campaign consultant Jared Rankin.

Let’s be honest Jared is not the man I thought he could be. He came in dominated, allowed Grace to be who she is, and even gave LOTS of blissful gratification. My only compliant for him was that he wasn't around more. I mean its ok to come by just be there. Not every meetup met the clothes needed to fall off. I think his best move yet was to give up Grace professionally.

I'm still not convinced about Grace and Jared’ s relationship, they have too many doubts and insecurities to workout. When things don’t go their was she rebels and he runs, its like grow up, open your mouth, and talk. Most of the drama could have been avoided if only that rare thing called communication would have taken place.

I was almost disappointed with the ending because in lead me to a cliffhanger, but I found a pleasant surprise within a few more pages, because I learned there will be one more addition to this saga that I can’ t wait to be entertained by.

I would definitely recommend The Phoenix Campaign under a few stipulations 1: please read The Phoenix Candidate first, 2: If you’re a fan of scandalous and sexy politics, and 3: If you enjoy people in high power positions that don’t exactly have it together, because let’s be truthful it makes them that more interesting.
