Stacey Abrams has won the hearts of progressives for her voting rights campaigns, and now she's set to see three of her earliest romance novels return to bookshelves.

The big picture: Before she helped Democrats flip Georgia this January, was considered a vice presidential pick in the 2020 election and a gubernatorial candidate in 2018, Abrams penned novels under the name Selena Montgomery.

  • Publisher Berkley will in 2022 release her romantic suspense trilogy "Rules of Engagement," "The Art of Desire" and Power of Persuasion," which she wrote some 20 years ago when in her final year at Yale Law School.

What she's saying: "As my first novels, they remain incredibly special to me," Abrams said in a statement.

  • "The characters and their adventures are what I’d wished to read as a young Black woman — stories that showcase women of color as nuanced, determined, and exciting."
