She’s the President of his heart.
A leader beloved by her nation.
Jessica Hampton is the heir to a political dynasty, and the first woman President of the United States. For six years she has given up everything in order to fulfill her late husband's legacy. But now, as her term in office draws to a close, she wants nothing more than to finish with the dignity her family demands. But when Jessica begins to negotiate an important Middle East accord with the sexy Egyptian Ambassador, being President takes a back seat to being a woman.
A man trapped on all sides.
Kamal Masri knows all about being an heir. He's not only Egypt's Ambassador to the US, he's the first-born son of one of the world's wealthiest men. Kamal's father has controlled his fortune, his career, and now possibly his life, because when the Egyptian parliament instructs him to negotiate an accord that threatens his father's illegal business dealings, all hell breaks loose. But as dark forces from the far side of the globe conspire to destroy the accord, Kamal is prepared to do whatever it takes to win Jessica's love. He'll fight to protect her, even from his own country.
Sexy Political Thriller
Jessica Hampton married into political royalty, never expecting that she would find herself serving in the highest position of the United States government. As President, Jessica has fulfilled the dreams of the Hampton family, stepping into a role that she always assumed would go to her dead husband. But the years in office have taken their toll, and Jessica barely remembers what made her, well, her anymore. Kamal Masri has always lived his life for the good of his family. As the eldest son, his responsibility is to secure his family's place in the world political arena. When his work with Jessica to broker peace in the Middle East evolves from a purely political alliance into something much more, Kamal will be forced to decide where his true loyalties lie.
Although she's the President of the United States, Jessica is extremely down-to-earth, a leader that resonates with her people. She's suffered incredible loss, but has managed to rebuild her life and carry on the legacy of the man that she lost too early. But living in the public eye and carrying so much responsibility has left her ready for change, for a chance to be the woman that she was before she stepped up to lead the U.S. Jessica's meetings with Kamal begin as purely business, but progress quickly to passionate and clandestine, and both Jessica and Kamal find something in each other that allows them to be more free than they've been in forever. With much to lose if their relationship goes public, and if the treaty that they are negotiating goes forward, Jessica and Kamal find themselves fighting for their love and for their lives.
POTUS is a great addition to Selena's Powerplay series. This book, with it's imaginative and timely plot, engaging characters, and all of the markers of a political thriller, grabbed me from the beginning and didn't let go. The action is non-stop, and the steam factor is waaay up there, earning POTUS 4 sexy, intrigue-filled, action-packed stars, and a recommendation for TBRs everywhere.
