Washington, D.C. and Oklahoma – Present Day

Ever since she got out of college, Georgie Dreyfus has worked for US Senator Clay Barron as his communications director. She's loyal and efficient, but Clay has not really thought about how important she is to him until one night when protesters at a convention where Clay is speaking suddenly get bold, and it's Georgie who ends up hurt. Clay goes into protective mode, and realizes she's more than just his employee. But since he's about to announce his run for the presidency, is he playing with fire by having a fling with her?

Clay is Georgie's idol—and the man she has loved since the moment she met him. His sudden interest in her well-being shocks her as much as it secretly thrills her. The last thing Clay needs as he prepares for his presidential bid announcement is that he's sleeping with his communications director. But he's very persuasive. Having Clay make love to her is thrilling and toe curling, but how long will it last? Then Georgie receives some devastating news that about to rock both their worlds…

Wow, what a roller coaster of emotions in THE BOSS AND HIS COWGIRL by Silver James. There is Clay, the handsome young senator who's the poster boy for honest American politics. Georgie helps him cultivate that reputation, so she knows sleeping with Clay will only cause a scandal. Yet, when she's spotted coming out of his home early one morning, their affair can't be denied. Clay's father, Cyrus, demands his son fire Georgie, but he doesn't want to give her up. No, he'd rather she remain by his side…and in his bed.

Georgie will do the proper thing, even if her heart will break if she has to leave her job and Clay…but he's persistent and breaks down her defenses. She's doesn't want to disrupt his potential run for the White House, and when she gets some bad news, she wants to break things off with him. But he refuses, even though it will likely distract him. He cares for Georgie that much. Or, is it love?

THE BOSS AND HIS COWGIRL is part of the Red Dirt Royalty series about the powerful Barron family of Oklahoma. Clay is doing what his father wants by being in the senate and planning a run for the presidency. But after everything is said and done, maybe it's time he does what he wants. Georgie has been faithful and has helped guide his political career. She'd make the perfect wife, but is he ready to ask for her hand in marriage? Add in that Cyrus Barron thinks Clay should marry someone more Hollywoodish, then their relationship is being tested on many sides.

In THE BOSS AND HIS COWGIRL, the plotline pretty much starts out with the boss who ends up finding his assistant attractive, but this tale soon branches into something stronger. I won't give away the spoilers, but it's safe to say that readers will be rooting for Georgie and Clay to have their happily-ever-after in more ways than one. Get THE BOSS AND HIS COWGIRL and see what I mean.
