State representative, romance writer -- same thing

God, I love our Legislature.

State Rep. Stacey Abrams, D-Atlanta, moonlights as a romantic suspense writer who scribes under the nom de plume of Selena Montgomery. (She's also a deserved winner of our illustrious Arnie Awards.) Her new novel, Reckless, recently hit stores.

Here's the plot:

Atlanta attorney Kell Jameson has just won yet another acquittal for a famous, if guilty, client. Then one frantic phone call wrenches her back Hallden, Georgia, a place she's spent years trying to escape. The head of her childhood orphanage has been accused of murder, and Kell is her only hope for freedom. Unfortunately for Kell, she is forced to work with Sheriff Luke Calder to prove her client’s innocence – but perhaps at the cost of revealing a secret Kell has worked a lifetime to keep hidden. And a secret a murderer will kill to protect.

The book's garnered rave reviews and is sure to include thinly veiled references to xenophobic, money-hungry and asphalt-lovin' state lawmakers.
