On the outside, Alex Conrad has everything. He’s gorgeous, rich, and has just been elected to the United States Senate by the state of Virginia.

But for the past few years, something has plagued Alex. Something has been missing from his life of privilege and opportunity. Something he has never allowed himself to acknowledge, until the night of his election.

Prudence Romaine is seventeen years Alex’s junior. The daughter of a friend whose life had taken a wrong turn, Prudence came into Alex’s life when she was just sixteen. Despite the passage of time and evidence to the contrary, Alex still thinks of Prudence as the little girl he once tried to rescue.

On election night, the sexual tension between Prudence and the senator reaches a tipping point. Prudence has been in love with Alex for some time, and now that she is in a position to do something about it, she has her aim set on Senator Conrad with no plans of giving up.

But Alex is already committed and a scandal is the last thing the newly-elected politician needs. As Alex pushes Prudence away, convinced their relationship can only end badly for them both, Prudence becomes even more determined to have Alex Conrad in her bed as well as her heart.

And Alex? He can only hold out for so long. And once he gives in, the passion they’ve held back for years threatens to undo them. But loving the senator is not all it’s cracked up to be.

Prudence must learn to handle the pressure that comes with being with a high-profile politician, Alex’s jealous ex-girlfriend, and the demands of the people, if she wants to make this work.

Loving the Senator is an erotic romance aimed at mature audiences and is part of the Capitol Affairs series of novels.

NinaReview

I am stupid crazy for books about politicians. Everyone wants the billionaire or the MC guy these days but for me I am all about a man in political power. He is the chosen one…he is the most popular guy in the room…and there is a sex appeal and a subtle arrogance knowing that he is the one most revered with a big fat W in his column.

When my partner in crime, BSG, pointed out Loving the Senator, I knew I had to get it. Even if it wasn’t about a sexy politician, the cover itself would caught my attention…a man in a suit with a red tie just screams power! I must admit I read this in a day. The story was fresh, the plot of was captivating, and I really liked the main characters.

Prudence Romaine, our heroine, and Alex Conrad, our Senator, have history. A kind of seedy yet very tender history. When Prudence makes a play for Alex….twice….she is shot down. I mean she goes down in flames and it was painful to read. Mia Villano wrote Prudence’s affections for Alex so honest and real, you couldn’t help but feel her ache. As time goes by and Alex finally comes to terms with his feelings for Prudence, the story starts to really heat up. They are a great couple in and out of the bedroom and as they deal with things from their past and managing a relationship in the public eye, you cannot help but root for this couple.

Loving the Senator is an extremely sexy book. Alex has a filthy mouth but better yet, Prudence is about as sexually confident woman as one could write. I am really loving these new found, aggressive women in books who not only enjoy sex, but aren’t afraid to ask for it. There is very little doubt left in the reader’s mind that these two were made for each other with their equally sexual appetites.

I think Mia Villano did a great job with her debut book. Although this book did not end in a cliffy, there is another book coming out in this series and I am really excited to see what she does with it. The pace of the book and the time frame was well executed and the storytelling and the back story of Prudence’s past was very appealing. You don’t have to love the political arena to fall for this book, but if you like a guy in power, then most definitely snuggle up with Alex Conrad and his dear Prudence.
