This isn't Michael Picetti's first presidential election cycle. He wants to win, but he's too burned out to be a true believer. These days, he doesn't feel much at all, except when a conversation on the plane to Iowa ignites a spark he thought was gone. Desire.
Lydia Reales has just landed her dream job. She has to impress the campaign manager and win this election, and she doesn't have time to flirt with a strange man on a plane or in a hotel bar, especially not when he's the enemy.
Michael and Lydia should have nothing in common. They shouldn't even talk. They should absolutely not start a reckless secret affair that threatens their careers and reputations. But as the campaign rages on, they'll question everything they should do in politics—and in love.
