Politics on a good day is a tricky business, and then throw in an outspoken African-American teacher and a charismatic white candidate, and watch the campaign trail heat up. Schoolteacher, Eden Warner is fed up with politicians using school children for their staged press conferences. However, when she comes face to face with the politician of the hour, her anger suddenly dissipates as she finds herself physically attracted to the man. Mayoral candidate, Chase Mathews has always dreamed of one day being mayor. But in the midst of his first press conference, all he can think about is the beautiful teacher staring up at him, daring him to saying something different. So when Chase announces that he will be spending a week in her classroom, Eden can't believe what she is hearing, nor can she fathom her sudden excitement to the news. White, handsome, and privileged, she shouldn't be falling under his spell. And Chase shouldn't be thinking of crossing the color line with a political race to win. But when love calls, he'll risk it all in The Politics of Love.
