Wealthy heiress Grace Hall's life has been in turmoil for the longest time: She's about to receive the title of 'Countess', is in the middle of a divorce, is running her father's company --- while fighting the Board's underminding efforts to kick her out --- and is now on the list of a serial killer. In desperation she hires bodyguard John Smith --- a man who is as much a mystery as he is dangerous. When John moves in with Grace, he's "all business" as her sole protector, never once suspecting that he'll soon find himself falling for the beautiful heiress. Grace and John's strong personalities have them clashing at every turn, despite their mutual attraction, and neither is willing to take the chance on an emotional relationship that might --- inevitably --- end in heartache. But the danger that surrounds Grace throws caution to the winds and John realizes he's falling in love with her; and now he's protecting more than just a life --- he's protecting his heart's desire. Grace fights her inner battles and comes to the realization that John is the man she's been looking for, and learns to finally trust her heart.
