The author of I See London sets her sights on Washington, D. C., with a sexy new series about three sisters, the secrets they keep, and a powerful blog with a knack for exposing scandals...
Jackie Gardner knows all about dirty little secrets. The illegitimate daughter of one of the most influential senators in Washington, D.C., she grew up surrounded by the scandals and shadows of politics. Now that she's landed an internship with a powerful political consulting firm, she's determined to launch her career and take this city by storm.
William Andrew Clayton was born for politics. He knows the drill: work hard, play discreetly, and at all costs, avoid scandal. At twenty-six, his campaign for the Virginia State Senate is the first step to cementing his future. It's time for him to settle down, to find the perfect political spouse. He needs a Jackie Kennedy, not a Marilyn...
When Jackie meets Will in the bar of the Hay-Adams Hotel, sparks fly. But the last thing Will needs is to be caught in a compromising position, and an affair with a political candidate could cost Jackie her career. When what began as one steamy night, becomes a passion neither one of them can walk way from, they must decide if what they have is really love, or just another dirty little secret...
If a woman’s in my bed, it’s because I want her there. I’m not a child who gets bored with his toys after five minutes. If the guys you’ve been with treat you like that, then you’ve been screwing around with boys. Wouldn’t you rather fuck a man?
Either you stay the night or I take you home now. His voice was firm. “I’m not going to be some guy you use to get off and then leave. I’m not going to let you turn us into that. If we’re going to have sex, then you’re going to be there through the night when I wake up wanting you, and you’re going to be there in the morning. Those are the terms. Take it or leave it.
Flirting with Scandal Playlist by Chanel Cleeton
Music is a huge part of my process and when I’m working on a book I always find myself listening to the same songs over and over again. With Flirting with Scandal, I wanted a playlist that captured the chemistry between Will and Jackie and the angst of wanting someone who’s just a little bit forbidden. Here’s what I came up with 🙂
Ho Hey by The Lumineers
Take Me to Church by Hozier
fallingforyou by The 1975
