With the launch of her political campaign, the last thing Tess needed was a distraction. She had enough to deal with running as a Republican and a closeted lesbian. But when Special Agent Robin Hart from the FBI arrives in Cincinnati to investigate a corruption case, Tess finds herself spending more time than she should with the attractive woman. Things get a little more complicated when Robin begins to display signs of affection, and Tess fears her own outing might erupt in political scandal and sink all chances of pursuing her dreams.

FourStars Such a very good book. Two strong but very different female lead characters, supported by the humorous and intelligent Samantha. Together and apart Tess and Robins characters are a dichotomy and I feel this is one of the great strengths of this novel. Not only was the plot well written but this almost played second to the relationship between these two fascinating women. I felt the turning point of this novel was when the protagonist was finally exposed and the two women concentrated on their own needs and the needs of each other. If you enjoy a well written mystery and hot sex scenes then this book is a must. This is the first book I have read by these authors but I will certainly be researching further ones. My only criticism would be that in the beginning Tess says she has no friends, and this is entirely believable given her character, however, a couple of pages later Tess states one of the reasons for not "coming out" would be the reaction of her friends. However I did thoroughly enjoy reading this book and found it hard to put down. I was given this in return for an honest review by Inked Rainbow Reads. Chris
