Secrets and lies have been the foundation of Lucy Washburn’s life. We’re taught to learn from our past, and she’s definitely learned from hers. Now that she knows what not to do and whom not to trust, her life is finally coming together, just as she hoped.
“Life is nothing more that a series of choices, and I’ve learned the hard way that the decisions we make can impact not only our lives, but the lives of others.”
Drake Prescott has earned my vote! From the first page to the last, Senator Prescott captured me with his honor, character, and the forthright manner in which he not only ran his campaign, but also his heart. A true family man grounded in the ideals of his country, Drake Prescott is the perfect man to lead this country. But when Lucy Washburn, a social studies teacher, captures his heart, he must determine if following his heart is more important than the dream he has held.
And Lucy? Well, she is a teacher who found her way into the profession in order to make a difference. When Senator Prescott enters her classroom as a guest speaker, the attraction to one another is immediate, and Lucy is shocked to be asked out on a date. However, Lucy’s past if full of secrets that could prove to be detrimental not only Prescott’s campaign, but could also ultimately affect her standing in the life and the career she has built. How can she share herself with him when she has worked so hard to build a life away from her past? Will the two ever be able to build something together? Or is the campaign trail and the dirty campaigning more than the two can take? Will the choices of her past impact the future of Drake’s?
