Faithful secretary to John Smith MP, Monica juggles his public social calendar and personal affairs with consumate ease. Then again, not so difficult when she’s usually the focus of his social and political activity — in more ways than one. Despite the frustration of not being his significant other, the mistress tries to shield him from the harsh realities of public office, flak from his shady deals, his interfering Private Secretary, Harper and of course, his wife, Dierdre. One day, she hopes they can just get away from the Political Circus and make a new life. Preferably somewhere hot.
