Since her mothers untimely death, crusader Josephine Callahan has served as New Jerseys First Lady. Acting as her fathers official hostess in the governors mansion is tantamount to living in a fishbowl, which makes S-E-X extremely difficult.

Hes told to, not only track down the governors classy daughter and hold her in protective custody, but to also teach her a lesson by letting her believe shes been kidnapped.
When Josie discovers the scarred, but still sexy, badass has played her for a fool, she retaliates by feigning a raging case of Stockholm syndrome, teasing the brute until all he can think of is the hold her part of his orders. How can Ryder concentrate on keeping Josie safe when hes busy avoiding the danger she poses to his heart?
