Fires of Siberia

by Tréy Sager


“What do you get if you combine Michele Bachmann and Fifty Shades of Grey?”

— Huffington Post

“Light some candles… [It’s] going to be a long and politically sensuous night.”

—NY Daily News

“The Summer's hottest read?”

—National Review

“A sweaty, sticky, hot summer read.”


“Tréy Sager’s Fires of Siberia is a flaming ode to erotic lyricism. Protagonist Danielle Powers, a sexy sociopath and politician on the make, wants to be made and made again. She’s Sarah Palin, Machiavelli, and a philosopher no one has ever heard of. Fires is so bizarre and witty, real yet unbelievable, and compelling, it hurts. Read it on the beach.”

—Lynne Tillman, author of American Genius, A Comedy

Inspired by the life of Tea Party leader and Republican Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, Fires of Siberia is an old-fashioned bodice ripper romance that brings the heat for the 2013 summer beach reading season. Presidential candidate Danielle Powers, full of firebrand pluck and red state sex appeal, has the country in a tizzy. But on an international tour to beef up her foreign policy experience, disaster ensues—her plane explodes over Siberia. Miraculously, Danielle survives, along with one other passenger—a mysterious stranger named Steadman Bass. Trapped in a wilderness of snow and ice, the two begin a journey that pushes Danielle to the brink. There she must confront her deepest self and choose between civilization and a wild, primitive ecstasy. All the while, Steadman harbors a terrible secret that threatens to destroy them both.
