If Josh Wyatt was surprised to find himself naked and on display in the tabloids, he was even more surprised to find that dark-haired beauty Tess Franklin was the perfect bodyguard for him. But helping his bodyguard fend off the advances and lawsuits of lust-stricken women proves to be much easier for Josh than fending off his lustful feelings for Tess. Struggling to remain professional, and also under the watchful eye of Tess' father/boss, they begin the dangerous game of mixing business with pleasure.
