Twenty years after having an affair with an English woman, an American presidential candidate learns that he has fathered a son, and the mother is desperate to keep the angry youth from devastating his father's chance for the presidency. A first novel.

Blackwell North Amer
Sweeping from the wild student scene of the sixties to the cutthroat political arena of the present, Special Relationship measures the explosive ramifications of a secret, twenty-year-old love affair between a lovely young Englishwoman and the charismatic American running for the presidency. It probes the fascinating contradictions of Jordan Hope, at once a deeply feeling human being, a lusty male, and a perfectly programmed political animal. It goes into the heart and longings of the still-beautiful Annie, who travels across the Atlantic to head off disaster, only to find herself joined with Jordan Hope on the brink of an unthinkable but increasingly irresistible new involvement. And it poignantly depicts the desperate dilemma of Tom, the son who is brought to the shattering realization that to reach out and touch his own father will be tantamount to destroying him.
