Sex. Lies. Greed. Power. Scandal. Politics.
Nothing gets by Elizabeth McNeal. As a forty-five year old
divorcee and a nationally renowned political strategist, she can claim to have
seen it all. Most of her adult life she’s focused on two important things ─ her
daughter and her career. Now, challenged by a new campaign and a new candidate,
Elizabeth is forced to reevaluate the things she most values and make some
major decisions that could impact her future.
William Baxter is a thirty-four year old Democratic
Congressman for the great state of Texas who’s vying for an empty seat in the
U.S. Senate. Accustomed to standing out in a crowd, Liam takes pride in being
true to himself and the people he serves. He refuses to fall in line with the
stereotypical persona of a politician. Backed by one of the richest men in
Texas, Liam is offered the chance to work with D.C.’s most elite political
strategist. With the odds already against him because of his party affiliation
and age, it’s an offer he can’t refuse.
Apprehensive about their age differences and driven by
politics, Elizabeth finds herself keeping score of their sensual game for
control. For the woman who thought she’d seen it all, the man in the eccentric
ties and a dashing smile teaches her a new game to play. Rules are made to be
broken. Lines are meant to be crossed. But in the high stakes sport of
politics, where one bad decision can destroy a campaign, can they afford to
rewrite the rules to meet their desires or will they choose to remain

One of my first (of two read together) political romances and I loved it. Politically Incorrect addresses the issue of office romance, ageism and love in politics. Elizabeth is older, republican and a single mother. Liam is young, democratic and a bit old fashion. Together they embark on an unconventional and possibly career ending relationship. Liam challenges Elizabeth and brings out a side of her that reminds her she’s a woman first. Elizabeth tries but can’t deny that even with the age difference that Liam is a man who ignites something inside of her. I was worried at first that the relationship would hit a snag and the story would drag, but Jeanne McDonald tells a wonderful story. I enjoyed the continuity of the storytelling and the resolutions. Each obstacle was met head on and there were no ambiguity or games.
I was given an arc in exchange for an honest review.
