CAPITOL MADNESS  
June 25, 2014
Author:  Sonsyrea Tate Montgomery
Category:  Fiction: Women's/Romance
Description:  SCANDAL meets THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA. Based on the author's own real-life experiences as a Congressional communications director during the historical 2008 elections, this novel goes behind closed doors on Capitol Hill and into the private lives of those who work there, and behind the headlines of the bailouts, backroom deals and unscrupulous politicians.

R.C. Paige is an idealistic young political administrator working for venerable yet vulnerable Senator Billie Jean Picasso during the tumultuous days following the election while the push is on to pass ground-breaking legislation, appease countless constituents and, for R.C., make her way in a strange and frantic new environment. Her fiance is supportive, but nerves soon fray after date after date is broken under the press of obligations, and R.C. finds herself at the beck and call of Madame Senator 24/7.

R.C. discovers truths about the inner workings of the political system that leave her deeply questioning both her chosen career and her allegiances, and pressures from her fiance leave her resentful and confused. Even if she suspects he's right, she hates to be pushed into decisions. When all of the elements come together into an explosive climax, R.C. knows she has to listen to her heart, even if it means burning bridges.
