The Chosen One

Will Ainsley’s love for the enigmatic girl enable her to break her Carmichael shackles?

Girls are a risk college freshman Ainsley Carmichael can’t take. Her powerful political family sees her as the Chosen One who will someday be president. Upholding a carefully crafted veneer is second nature until the first day of class when Maya’s mysterious gray eyes hold her in thrall.

Ainsley may be out publicly regarding her sexual orientation, but she lives under the shadow of the Carmichael’s ancient but shrewd matriarch in this contemporary lesbian romance. It soon becomes clear Maya is hiding something when she cuts their first kiss short by pointing out they come from different worlds.

The privileged world of the Carmichael clan stands in stark contrast to Maya’s limited means. Ainsley’s quirky and carefree cousin helps her investigate, only to discover details of Maya’s past are sketchy at best as the suspense builds in this work of LGBT fiction.

Ainsley Carmichael is destined to be president, but she can’t resist Maya’s gray eyes. She’s out as a lesbian, but her powerful family casts a long shadow.

Maya has secrets and a different background.

Ainsley’s cousin helps her uncover the truth in this lesbian romance with suspense.

Ms. Markinson is a historian and likes to supply the reader with random tidbits of information about former US presidents and historical data but it never feels as info-dump, at least, nor for me (though I majored in Political Science).

This wonderful story where two girls, from different backgrounds are searching for different levels of normalcy from lives that they aren’t really in control of fascinated me.

I wish to thank the author for this gift, for that is what this book is. It is very well written. I loved the intrigue and the hidden threat of almost love lost. I highly recommend this book.
