He seduced her when she was only fifteen.
Now, seventeen years later, he’s about to win the US presidency.

The Baby Game is a political thriller set in a very troubled election year. But the trouble has only begun.
Camelia is a recently orphaned teen who has to make it to her estranged grandparents' home in South Dakota or face foster care. But she's too young to travel alone, and she doesn't have enough money.
Bear is Camelia's neighbor, an aging biker with a terminal illness who is determined to make one last run to the big Harley riders' meet in Sturgis.
Camelia talks Bear into taking her along, since her grandparents live less than thirty miles from Sturgis.
Together with Bear's younger sister and a friend, they take off on Harleys, planning on going the long way and soaking up the scenery.
Things go well for a while, and it really is a dream vacation. Then people they meet start turning up dead. The group learns that a mass murderer known as the Northwest Killer is operating in the area. That's bad enough, but it soon becomes apparent that they are somehow psychically linked to the man.
For Camelia, it becomes less a matter of reaching her grandparents than of simply staying alive.
The Last Ride is a road novel. While technically a young adult book because of Camelia's age (14), adults who don't require sex or four-letter words in their reading material will probably find it an interesting read.
WARNING: There are a couple of lesbian characters in the novel. They're good characters and don't do anything you or I wouldn't do, but they are there, in case that matters.
Elliott is still mourning the deaths of his parents and his brother when his brother’s widow and her small daughter arrive to stay for a while. The foul-mouthed, exhibitionist mother he can do without, but Gee, the five-year-old girl, is a charmer.
But Gee tells stories, stories that no child her age could make up. In the stories she’s a grown woman, a dancer, and she meets a tragic end. Elliott doesn’t know what to make of it. Could Gee have lived before?
His feelings are a conflicting mix of disbelief and curiosity, needing resolution, so the pair sets out for the place where the murdered woman lived. There Elliott meets a woman he knows, even though he’s never met her, and there he and Gee come to the attention of a man who has killed many times over the centuries. And who is not about to stop.
