I have chosen The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood.
The Commander is an architect of the new laws of the Republic. He and his wife, Serena Joy, convinced the government to enslave woman and force them to give birth to babies for women who can no longer have children of their own, which in Gilead is 90% of the population. To his horrror, a doctor informs him that he is no longer fertile. He hides this from his wife and blames her for their inability to have children. He finds himself needing to host a handmaid. Things go horribly wrong with the first handmaid so he must host a second one. This one, named Offred, is both beautiful and intelligent, which is rare. He finds himself spending time with her doing things far more scandalous than having an affair. However, his wife discovers this and starts to help Offred. If Serena can get Offred pregnant than she can get Offred out of her house, and has a chance at saving her marriage.
