Politics and Passion and Prose: A Romance Panel, DC Edition! with Aimee Agresti - Campaign Widows, Tracey Livesay - Love Will Always Remember, and Kelly Maher - The Bridesmaid and the Hurricane, moderated by Andie J. Christopher

Upcoming Event
Saturday, July 7, 2018 - 6:00pm to 7:00pm

P&P is excited to continue the popular Romance Panel series with a theme Washingtonians are sure to love—politics! Join three talented local writers as they track affairs of the heart among Capitol Hill staffers, media figures, and assorted speechwriters, consultants, and bloggers. The discussion will be moderated by Andie J. Christopher, best-selling romance author, most recently of Before Daylight.

In Campaign Widows (Graydon House, $15.99), Aimee Agresti, a widely-published entertainment journalist and author of the Gilded Wing trilogy for young adults, puts us both at the center and on the sidelines of a tumultuous campaign season. Cady has recently moved to Washington to join her fiancé, but now he’s always out on the road campaigning. But she’s not really alone, and as she connects with other bright and ambitious women in similar circumstances, the novel becomes a smart, witty look at the nexus of politics and society.


Tracey Livesay, a former criminal defense attorney, continues her Shades of Love series with

Love Will Always Remember (Avon, $6.99). The story centers on Leighton Clarke, a lobbyist, who comes from a prominent African-American political dynasty. She’s engaged to Thomas, a white power broker, but is increasingly attracted to his restaurateur brother, Jonathan. Then while Thomas is away in London, Leighton suffers a brain injury and goes into a coma. She comes out of it remembering nothing of the last six years, but is all too willing to believe that Jonathan is the man she’s going to marry. He humors her and falls for her…just as Thomas and her memory return.


A D.C. librarian and romance writer, Kelley Maher launches her Capital Kisses series with The Bridesmaid and the Hurricane (D Ink Edit, $11.99). Radhika O'Leary and Malcolm Jones, aka "Colm" and "The Hurricane Hottie," hooked up for a weekend over a year ago. They meet again when Jones, a broadcast meteorologist, is hired by the Washington TV station where Radhika works. He’s eager to pick up where they left off, and though she’s interested, she’s all too aware of how a relationship with a colleague could be perceived, spun, and used to damage her professional standing.
