Overview

Politics on a good day is a tricky business, and then throw in an outspoken African-American teacher and a charismatic white candidate, and watch the campaign trail heat up. Schoolteacher, Eden Warner is fed up with politicians using school children for their staged press conferences. However, when she comes face to face with the politician of the hour, her anger suddenly dissipates as she finds herself physically attracted to the man. Mayoral candidate, Chase Mathews has always dreamed of one day being mayor. But in the midst of his first press conference, all he can think about is the beautiful teacher staring up at him, daring him to saying something different. So when Chase announces that he will be spending a week in her classroom, Eden can't believe what she is hearing, nor can she fathom her sudden excitement to the news. White, handsome, and privileged, she shouldn't be falling under his spell. And Chase shouldn't be thinking of crossing the color line with a political race to win. But when love calls, he'll risk it all in The Politics of Love.

This books gets you from the first page and you wont stop until you have read the last page. This is a romantic sexy story about two people who find each other and learn how to love each other. I truly loved this book.

This book by Giselle Carmichael was one in which I could not put down. I've read many romance stories, but this one kept me interested as to what would be the outcome of the main characters. The relationship between the couple was positive and hopeful. I certainly hope Mrs. Carmichael writes another interracial story. Thanks!

This is the first novel I've read by Mrs. Giselle Carmichael and you can bet I'll be looking for more of her novels. 'The Politics of Love' is a fast-paced and believable romance. I was totally enthralled with Chase and Eden from the very beginning. The characters were well-developed and Mrs. Carmichael handled the interracial issues very well, without following the normal stereotypes. The suspense of the campaign and the bumps in the road for the couple keeps the story flowing. Mrs. Carmichael also delivered some very sexy and erotic love scenes. I LOL, got angry and even had to pull out the Kleenex because I was truly touched by this story. I couldn't put the book down, yet I truly hated for the story to end because the love between Eden and Chase just leaped off the pages. A Definite MUST Read if you are a true romantic at heart! Way to Go, Mrs. Carmichael!

I read a great deal. 3-4 books/week if time allows. I love romance. Paranormal romance some historical romance, so this was a different direction for me. The synopsis was interesting and I was curious to see what direction the author would take with this story. Let me say that I am an African American woman with a very diverse mix of relatives. I often despair at the lack of racial mixtures in romance novels. Giselle does a great job of focusing on the similarities, humanity, and love between these two characters as they struggle to find each other under difficult political and racial circumstances. BRAVO to Giselle for her focus on the two main characters as simply people in love, and their ability to find the beauty in each other regardless of their race. (PS the love scenes are pretty good too LOL)

This book was fanastic. I really got into this book. I look at this not as a racial black-white interracial romance, this book was no color. You will cry if you read this book. I was so happy for Chase and Eden they exemplify what love should really be between a man and woman. This book make you believe in love and Chase is so sexy. I want a Chase. Also, this was the best interracial novel, I have read in a long time.
