Fans of Scandal, House of Cards, and The Good Wife will love Grace Colton…

Congresswoman Grace Colton is the most famous woman in politics—and the loneliest—until a drawling, sexy stranger offers her one night, no strings and no regrets.

Grace wakes to an empty hotel room and a phone call: the dark horse for the 2016 presidential election, Senator Shep Conover, is considering her as his vice presidential running mate. But first, Grace must be vetted and coached by Shep’s political consultant, Jared Rankin, who already knows too many intimate details about her. He’s Mr. One-Night Stand.

Grace is torn: Play nice with Jared to join the senator’s ticket, or play hardball and back the slick frontrunner? Grace must decide where her loyalties lie and if she can trust Jared with her future—and her heart.

The Phoenix Candidate 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 first in a series and can be read as a standalone.

Tarah's Review

The synopsis to The Phoenix Candidate caught my eye. I’m a sucker for a good political drama. I love me some Scandal. #TeamJake Anywho… the tricky bit with these political romances is that the bar is already set quite high. The Phoenix Candidate wasn’t able to knock off the top spot on my list of political hot couples, but it was close.

Grace is a firecracker and she gives hell to Jared. Both caught in the world of politics and ethics, things never seem to simmer. There is always a line drawn and deciding when to cross it can be a struggle. Jared seems to be made for Grace because he not only knows how to take her, but he has mastered how to give it back.

The Phoenix Candidate holds a great level of maturity. Both with its characters and storyline. Heidi wrote this very well and the information wasn’t dumbed down for readers. It’s always refreshing to read about a heroine who can hold her own, but allows her partner to support her all the same. Grace and Jared fight their way to not only win in the world of politicians, but in the world of love. This book is sexually and intellectually delicious. Give it a read.
