"This is what really happened… reported by a free press, to a free people…"

After nearly dying in the wilderness, Julia Bancroft is ready to dive right back in to her sometimes-dangerous job as a photojournalist for The Golden Mail. The problem is, no matter how hard she tries she can't forget the kisses she shared on assignment with her handsome editor, Wes.

Now that they're both back at corporate headquarters, their coworkers will be watching their every move. Giving in to her attraction to him could jeopardize her career, but ignoring her feelings for Wes could cost Julia her fragile heart.

All Wes Shaw wants to do is pretend kissing Julia never happened. Even though he can't stop fantasizing about her, kissing her was a mistake. As her secret boss, he can't let her get close enough to figure out that he's the owner of The Golden Mail. Easier said than done, since all he wants is to kiss her again. To make matters worse, when a cold case lands on his desk Wes has no choice but to chase the story with his star reporter, Julia.

As work brings them closer together can Wes and Julia keep pretending they're nothing more than coworkers, or will they give in to a temptation that neither of them can afford?
