“The president died earlier this morning in his sleep.”
That’s the startling news Carla Hamilton, fashion model turn politician—and the first African American woman to serve as vice president of the United States—receives a month after an election that will turn the country over to a new president. Carla understands she will occupy the Oval Office for only six weeks.
But in Washington, D.C., six weeks is a lifetime.
Hours after being sworn in, Carla is confronted by numerous challenges that test her determination. She must resolve a fast-moving international hostage crisis, manage a dysfunctional White House staff and stave off attempts to usurp her authority by the devious president-elect, who has unearthed dirt about her past. Carla’s hectic life is further complicated by family problems and the attraction she feels for her chief military adviser. Is it all too much for one person to handle?
President Pro Tem presents a compelling story complete with all the essentials necessary to captivate the reader: an attractive and intelligent heroine, political intrigue—and a touch of forbidden romance.
