Selena Laurence has done it again. Setting another of her exciting Powerplay novels in the high stakes atmosphere of Washington, D. C. where even a hint of scandal can destroy the lifelong dream a highly qualified candidate for the Supreme Court. This is a steep and crooked roller coaster track leading to a rocky second chance romance that explores the highly volatile subjects of race and the taboo of interracial dating. Teague and Deanna come face to face 12 years after she caved to pressure from her wealthy, white and deeply prejudiced parents and walked away from the man she loved. Her defection left him broken and bitter while Deanna has had to live with her guilt and her regret. Newly united, they face devastating and impossible consequences of those choices with a grace and dignity that I found especially riveting. It's a love story that is sinfully sexy, achingly poignant and beautifully color blind. Kudos to this amazing author!
