Susan Kelsey is smart, beautiful, successful, and furiously independent, but one very naive small town girl. When Susan's purse is stolen, she's outraged when the overworked police arrive an hour later and treat her like a ninny because she was stupid enough to leave her purse on the front seat of her unlocked car while she returned to the grocery store for something she forgot.
But the stolen purse was just the beginning of a bigger crime. A terrorist stalks Susan to gain access to a highly classified military project called S-2. Once he gets what he wants, he'll kill her with the guns she hates.
Derrick Makay isn't about to let that happen. He works for the federal government in Homeland Security, and they had been chasing this terrorist for months.
Though Susan and Derrick are highly attracted to each other, they differ greatly on key issues such as gun control. She believes if all the guns are taken away, then the world would be a better place. Derrick believes she needs to educate herself with the facts, least of which is that not everyone is murdered with a gun. She must also learn that nothing is cut and dry on the mean streets of a big city.
