This is an auction for SPECIAL RELATIONSHIP by Robyn Sisman.

"At Oxford, free-spirited Brit Annie Hamilton and driven American Jordan Hope shared a brief, but intense, connection. Now Jordan is the charming Democratic hopeful everyone is betting will be the next American president. When Annie's 19-year-old son convinces himself that Jordan is his father, it sets all of their lives in a tailspin. First published in the United Kingdom in 1995, Sisman's novel is set during the 1992 election, with Jordan Hope as an obvious Clinton stand-in. Considering the events of the last 10-plus years, the story may seem dated, perhaps nostalgic. But like Sisman's Weekend in Paris (2004) and Summer in the City (2005), this is an enjoyable read with sympathetic characters, and the portions set at Oxford in the late 1960s are especially engaging. More thoughtful than most chick lit, it is a fine addition to Sisman's shelf."

"It's late October 1992, and 21-year-old Tom Hamilton, son of top London literary agent Anne, has just learned that his biological father is a certain saxophone-playing former Rhodes scholar who is now running hard for the U.S. presidency. That's the premise of Sisman's first novel, which redeems its titillating concept through fluid writing and well-wrought characters. Insider details about the publishing business in London and New York add further to the hard-edged excitement. To Sisman's credit, what at first glance appears to be trading on tabloidism turns out to be a fine bit of storytelling, a captivating roman a clef in which politics and passion mix with bombshell potential."
