Daryn Austin, political princess and daughter of a Georgia governor, has
always dreamed of being the first female president of the United States.
In November 2000, she and Craig Parker, an independent, win the
national election and Daryn moves into the Vice Presidential mansion. On
June 6, 2003, however, destiny propels Daryn to the pinnacle of power
when Parker dies unexpectedly. She now controls the White House, but she must tread carefully if she is to
win the 2004 election and implement real change in American society. To
help her through political and legal quagmires, she hires Paul Santana,
the brilliant lawyer she had loved while attending law school.
When she nominates Paul to fill a vacancy on the Supreme Court, however, her
grand plans begin to crumble.
After being influenced by another
justice, the man she loves begins to love God, a rival with whom Daryn
cannot compete. Daryn’s obsession with the changed Paul leads to an
emotionally charged battle of wills from which neither can escape
