A fictional version of U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann will soon be featured in e-novel that its publisher calls "an old-fashioned bodice ripper romance," City Pages reports.

Written by Trey Sager, "Fires of Sibera" features a cover of a woman that distinctly looks like Bachmann, and it wasn't by mistake.

Publisher Badlands Limited, says in a press release that the story was "inspired by the life of Tea Party leader and Republican Congresswoman Michele Bachmann."

The company says it is releasing the book just in time for 2013 summer beach reading season.

Here's a description of "Fires of Siberia" from the publisher.

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.

Badlands Unlimited is releasing the book June 1 on Apple iBooks for the iPad, iPhone and iTouch, as well as Amazon for all Kindles for $2.99.

This isn't the first time Bachmann has served as a muse for a creative type. She inspired an episode of the vampire romance series "True Blood" during the presidential primaries in 2012.
