Joshua Carter is an undercover agent who has built up a James Bond-like persona as part of his cover - the suave, sophisticated playboy. This is why shy, "plain" secretary Amanda Wainwright can't believe that he's serious about wanting her. Besides, she believes in love and marriage, while his past has made him gun-shy of both. In the midst of the danger they face because of Joshua's undercover work, they learn to accept each other.
Although it does have some element of external conflict, mainly to do with Joshua's occupation, much of the book is focused on the relationship of the hero and heroine, their emotions, their fears and their desires.

A woman worth waiting for...
Undercover Agent Joshua Carter had only wanted to help sweet Amanda Wainwright. Instead, her being seen with him had put the shy secretary's life in danger...and under his twenty-four-hour protection.
But from the moment Amanda stepped into the playboy's apartment, it was Josh's life that was on the line, because he still remembered one long-ago, stolen kiss. And although Josh had tried to act honorablely by giving Amanda space, her fragile vulnerability still called to him and awakened every male instinct. Now Josh wanted a future, could he make this inexperienced beauty see beneath the playboy facade to a heart that beat true?
