Relieved to have finally finished his three-year assignment leading the security team protecting former First Lady and respected philanthropist Tess Carlisle, Secret Service Agent Doug Chesnic is shattered to discover that Tess has requested- probably from her good friend, the current President of the United States- that Doug be assigned to her security detail permanently…

Characterized by his attention to detail and pride in every aspect of his work, what drives Doug most of all about Tess is her total disregard for everything he stands for; from abandoning any recognition of his actual function as the head of her security and treating him as a house servant or butler, to stubbornly throwing a wrench into and wrecking Doug’sprotective measures whenever she chooses. Considering Tess a royal pain, Doug’s frustration soon turns to guilt and fear for Tess when they find out that Tess has been kidnapped
