Inside the lines... It's the definition of life for Tracy Rhodes, and she has no choice about that. Lines-lots of them-are what happens when one is sworn in as second-in-command of the free world. But the lines are crushed beneath the boots of Captain John Franzen, assigned as a special advisor to her security team for a high-profile event in Vegas. The towering warrior with the haunted stare shatters her composure, invades her libido, and makes her yearn for things she shouldn't. Sweaty, illicit things...with her body pinned beneath his... Outside the boundaries... John Franzen, six and a half feet of rigid composure on the outside, is a lost man on the inside. What's he doing here? A guy isn't supposed to survive eleven years in Special Forces, especially after the crazy missions he's been assigned. Accepting the security gig in Vegas is just a favor to a friend-a way to fill time that's become too damn empty lately. Until the cushy "babysitting job" becomes the most treacherous mission of his life. And the politician he's protecting becomes the woman in his bed. The lover beneath his bonds... The submissive he longs to claim forever. Breaking all the rules... She's destined for marble halls and an oval office. He's wired for jungles, dirt, and violence. Will her passion be enough to tame his demons...to claim the ultimate wild boy as her own?
