The author of I See London sets her sights on Washington, D. C., with a sexy new series about three sisters, the secrets they keep, and a powerful blog with a knack for exposing scandals...

Jackie Gardner knows all about dirty little secrets. The illegitimate daughter of one of the most influential senators in Washington, D.C., she grew up surrounded by the scandals and shadows of politics. Now that she's landed an internship with a powerful political consulting firm, she's determined to launch her career and take this city by storm.

William Andrew Clayton was born for politics. He knows the drill: work hard, play discreetly, and at all costs, avoid scandal. At twenty-six, his campaign for the Virginia State Senate is the first step to cementing his future. It's time for him to settle down, to find the perfect political spouse. He needs a Jackie Kennedy, not a Marilyn... 

When Jackie meets Will in the bar of the Hay-Adams Hotel, sparks fly. But the last thing Will needs is to be caught in a compromising position, and an affair with a political candidate could cost Jackie her career. When what began as one steamy night, becomes a passion neither one of them can walk way from, they must decide if what they have is really love, or just another dirty little secret...


Purple My Review

Flirting with Scandal is the first book of author Chanel Cleeton’s Capital Confessions series. The romance, politics and scandal drew me in from the beginning to the end. This is a great start to a new series!

In Flirting with Scandal we meet Jackie Gardner, a young intern at a powerful political consulting firm. She’s lived in Washington, D.C. all her life and loves the thrill of politics. This is surprising since she is the illegitimate daughter of a very influential senator, a man who has never acknowledged her existence. The anger and pain caused by her parents fuels her drive to succeed. She’s worked hard to put herself through college and is determined to make her career goals. But all her dreams are compromised the moment she meets William Clayton in a hotel bar. Sparks fly immediately until Jackie discovers his true identity, a candidate for the Virginia State Senate. The news quickly douses the heat between Jackie and Will, but fate has more stored for them. When their paths cross again can they ignore their intense chemistry and full-fill their career dreams? Or will they give in to their passion and risk losing everything? You have to read the book to find out!

I absolutely loved Flirting With Scandal! The romance between Jackie and Will is intense and passionate. This is written in dual point-of-views so readers get a glimpse at how both characters are affected by their strong connection. I loved how Jackie is intelligent, independent and a hard worker. Washington is a man’s world but Jackie is just as tough and smart as her male competitors. And Will recognizes that in her and respects her drive and passion for her work. Will is the perfect guy! He’s handsome, wealthy, and honest. He wants to make a difference in the world. Flirting With Scandal has the perfect combination of steamy sex, drama and emotion that has me wanting more. Author Chanel Cleeton created characters I loved in her International School series and now in this series. Her writing is clear and flows well. The blog posts from Capital Confessions are a fun and creative lead into each chapter. I can’t wait for more in this series!
