Between a domineering father and a high-pressure career as a politician, Vaughn Hamilton doesn't stand a chance for a fulfilling personal relationship with any man, especially a handsome, sought after, high-profile lawyer like Justin Montgomery.

Justin enters Vaughn's life on the eve of the kick-off of her senatorial campaign, just when her life can't handle another commitment. The instantaneous passion that explodes between them won't be denied, though. Nor is Justin going to let this beautiful, intelligent woman get away.

Against the glittering backdrop of the nation's capital, SCANDALOUS plunges the reader into the turbulent lives of two lovers about to be ripped asunder by dark secrets of the past and heartbreaking betrayals of the present.

This sensual, fast-paced novel rife with drama, passion and politics showcases Ms. Hill's impressive talents, which have blossomed from a delicate bud into an exotic flower. (June, 320 pp., $4.99)
