A so-cute-it-hurts political love story set in a happier alternate timeline

The "alternate" part of this universe is that instead of our current POTUS #45, we have President Ellen Claremont-Diaz, whose hotheaded adult son, Alex, is attending Georgetown and presiding over the East Wing. Alex's diplomatic responsibilities become more complicated when his passive rivalry with the reserved, handsome Prince of England explodes in an embarrassing international incident that -- surprise! -- sends unexpected sparks flying.
 
The very cute cover makes it look like a Prince Harry/Pete Buttegieg romance, and thankfully it's not quite that close to reality. Instead it's heartwarming and tooth-achingly sweet, with smart subplots about identity, found family, and international politics.
