San Francisco columnist Tanzy Harrington classifies the world quite simply around the concept that two types of males populate it: wolves and sheep. Tanzy prefers the dangerous wolves as her bed mate over the flock of dependable husband material. The key to her unusual attitude is that she loves them and leaves them with her heart untouched.

Her Aunt Millicent feels that Tanzy is missing out on real life so she chooses a candidate for her niece. Tanzy immediately blows away Millicent's selection as a sheep or why else would her aunt select him. In actuality Millicent hired security expert Riley Parrish to protect Tanzy from an anonymous fan threatening her. As Riley escorts Tanzy throughout the Bay area they fall in love, but she begins to wonder if he might be a wolf in sheep's clothing.

Fans of chick lit will enjoy this contemporary romance due to the uniqueness of Tanzy. The story line moves slowly forward, as the suspense elements remain de-emphasized though suspects surface. Instead, the tale focuses on Tanzy's Baa Humbug attitude towards sheep and her doubts about which classification Riley belongs to while she disregards the well known fact that wolves mate for life.
