About “The Congressman’s Wife”

The tabloids are full of stories about senators, congressmen, even presidents who cheat on their spouses.  The Congressman’s Wife is about a beautiful woman who cheats on her high-profile politician husband.  Eden Bancroft knows all she has ever been to Mitchell is a trophy wife, born and bred for the part.  She believes she has no choice but to play it until she meets Kaleb Stavros, a talented chef and restaurant heir.

The more her husband uses and belittles her, the more deeply Eden falls in love with Kaleb.  Even with Mitchell’s campaign in full swing, Eden and Kaleb manage to find ways to be together.  Their brief stolen moments take them to Paris and then Cyprus, where Kaleb’s family owns olive orchards and a vineyard.

When her husband is wounded by a bullet from a disgruntled lobbyist, Eden must stay by his side.  What she learns by doing her duty is the key to her freedom, if she has the courage to take a stand.

“The only thing more exciting than writing The Congressman’s Wife is diving into the second book, The Congressman’s Mistress,” says Keel. “In an election year, with all eyes on politics, it’s fun to take a fictitious peek behind closed doors.”

“This is a romantic, action-packed tale that could have been ripped from today’s headlines, told with remarkable insight and passion,” said Micky Hyman, Red Sky Presents’ Publisher.

“The Congressman’s Wife” is presented in the Romance section of Red Sky Presents’ website, www.RedSkyPresents.com and on www.redskybookblog.wordpress.com. The paperback debuts in February at a suggested retail price of $ 14.99 at select bookstores and online at Amazon.com, and at $9.99 for the digital version at Kindle.com, Barnes and Nobel.com and iBook’s.
