Sometimes, politics make the strangest of bedfellows…and enemies.

Terrell Warren is a rising star within the ranks of the Democratic Party. Buoyed his former heroic exploits in Desert Storm, the two-term senator has ascended quickly, currently being vetted as a part of the party’s presidential ticket in the upcoming election cycle, entering rarified air as an African-American politician. He’s charismatic, devilishly handsome, and possesses both the pedigree and the type of bipartisan support that could have him sitting in the Oval Office as Commander-in-Chief in the near future.

Even his unconventional marriage to the stunning Kianna Warren doesn’t seem to sway the public, as rumors from media circuits continue to swirl around their alternative proclivities. After all, who wouldn’t want to surrender and be in service to the powerful, irresistible statesman? He has managed to claim the American public’s imagination, providing the catalyst as the face of the wave of the future of the party.

Unfortunately, there are forces at work that wish to derail the inevitable, and they will stop at nothing to ensure that Senator Warren is discredited.

Kianna’s unexpected abduction takes him off the campaign trail, as the mysterious organization taking credit for her abduction has made one rather extraordinary demand—one that threatens to revert American foreign policy back to the previous century’s “Cold War” history. The ultimatum is clear—either comply with the demands, or his wife will be killed.

In Service to the Senator is the latest explosive tale from best-selling author Shakir Rashaan, where a race against the clock might mean the difference between life and death.

Politics. Intrigue. Suspense. Drama. Sex.

You get all of that and some more in the newest release from Shakir Rashaan. I was not sure what to except because the material is quite different than what this author has written in the past. I would classify this book as political suspense with a hint of erotica. The synopsis clearly states what the book is about so there is no need to rehash that here. The race against time is filled with so much drama and imagery, that I could close my eyes and imagine how it would actually play out and to me that is the sign of some excellent storytelling skills.

I’ve been quite critical of Mr. Rashaan’s work in the past, but I can say without a doubt, that this was my favorite book of his to date. There was politics, suspense, drama, and of course his signature style of giving us some insight into the BDSM lifestyle. I sometimes wonder if certain folks have their current positions because of their intelligence and/or if they slept their way there and after reading this book I will be even more leery. One last thing, they say there’s nothing like a woman scorned and In Service to the Senator proves it!!
