The Senator approached them. "Well, hello, Miss Evans. Whatever brings Washington, D.C.'s, most celebrated gossip columnist and sometimes muckraker way out here?" There was a threatening quality in his voice. His eyes had a look of cold steel that sent a chill down Janelle's spine. Her mouth fell open. What was she going to tell him? She certainly wasn't ready to admit she was checking on land deals he might be involved in. A warm wave of protectiveness swept over Bart. Whatever it took, he was determined to protect her from the senator and any strong-arm connections he might have. Suddenly he had an inspiration. "We're here to get married," Bart blurted out. Janelle stared at him, her eyes wide with shock. She was too stunned to do more than sputter, "Bart!" A romance of two strong-willed personalities competing for love and bylines in a world of journalism, politics, and intrigue.
