Author Pamela Clare has called on her own experiences as an investigative reporter to write a stunning romantic suspense story that takes you into the world of corruption, high stakes government, and reckless abuse of power. A story that's part romance, part action-adventure, and part police procedural, EXTREME EXPOSURE is a roller-coaster ride that will have you turning pages long into the night.

For single mother Kara McMillan, finding a man hasn't been a top priority for several years. The only problem is that her body is urging her otherwise, and Kara has to admit that five years without a man-and without sex-has been about five years too long. Her friend Holly's advice? Go to a bar, have a few drinks, find someone you want to spend the night with, and make your intentions known. For Kara, whose life has revolved around nothing but her son, Connor, and her job, journalism, Holly's advice is easier said than done.

Unfortunately-or fortunately, depending on how you look at it-after one too many margaritas in that bar crowded with fine male specimens, a man enters who has all of Kara's juices flowing-the private and the professional ones. State Senator Reece Sheridan is a man to be admired, feared, or lusted after; depending on which side you fall upon. For Kara, this smooth-talking, well-dressed man who could be a male model is a cause for alarm-he gets her bells ringing, and it's been a long, long time since that happened.

A drunken conversation about sex in a crowded bar somehow leads to an invitation for a date, and Kara finds herself growing more and more attracted to Reece. And as their relationship develops to the next level, Kara finds herself on the other side of the newspaper for once-there's a lot of public interest in her relationship with the Senator, not all of it good. Someone is urging her to investigate her lover in something more sinister than having Reece get to know her son; something, in fact, that might have Reece Sheridan as a government official abusing his power in the Senate, and doing things that are strictly illegal-not to mention dangerous.

Suddenly both their reputations are on the line-Reece's as a Senator, Kara's as a reporter and a mother. Can the fact that their growing attraction, admiration, and respect have grown even deeper save them from the storm of bad publicity around them? And why is someone so desperate to see Reece Sheridan removed from the Senate?

Kudos to Ms. Clare for such a great story! An innovative and intriguing story line made better by real life characters, EXTREME EXPOSURE is a hot, sexy novel that has enough twists and turns to keep everyone satisfied. Romantic suspense that's heavy on details that only a true reporter would know, I highly recommend this book.
