      "Stephen McEvoy never expected to fill his father's U.S. Senate seat at such a young age-or to fight to keep it. When clever Anne Norwood interns in his office, Stephen dismisses her as another pretty face-until her independent streak catches his attention. They're both too smart to fall for one another, yet they do. During a tough election, their relationship is an impossible political gamble. Campaigns-like love-are either won or lost."
