Being a U.S. Senator is my dream job... until my new bodyguard walks in and turns my whole world upside down.

Christian is the brooding, silent type, and he does something to my insides...
He turns them into a hot, sticky, not-befitting-of-a-public-servant, unholy 
mess.

When he swears an oath to protect me, I must admit my heart flutters the tiniest bit.

But as the danger around us heightens, I start to wonder who Christian really is.

Is he here to protect me, or is there something else going on... something he's not telling me?

When everything falls apart, I don't know if my new hero will still be by my side...
...and that scares me more than anything.

Chapter 1 Look Inside

If someone told me that my first day as a US Senator would involve a bucket of rotting fish guts being poured over me, I would never have believed them. I would have called them crazy.

I would have been wrong.

When I arrived at the Hart Senate Office building, I dropped my cardboard box onto my new desk and glanced around the office. It was bigger than my last office, but it felt cold. Clinical. Empty.

For now.

I wandered over to the window and looked outside. My office overlooked the internal courtyard of the building. It had a massive glass roof that cast a dim, artificial light over everything it covered—including my office. People in suits rushed from one side of the courtyard to the other, checking their watches and lugging expensive-looking briefcases with them.

My eyes drifted over everything as a smile tugged at the edge of my lips and excitement snaked in the pit of my stomach.

I never expected to be here, in D.C., so early in my career. I never expected to be the youngest female senator that this country had ever seen.

And yet… I was here. All the sacrifices that I’d made on my way here were starting to pay off. All the late nights campaigning, all the unpaid internships, all the relationships I never had—it was all worth it.

I made it.

A nervous tingle spread through my body and I took a deep breath.

All eyes were on me. I’d been handed an opportunity on a golden platter, and I wasn’t going to mess it up.

The Governor appointed me after Senator Nathan Blanchet was exposed for his involvement in a Russian weapons deal last month. It was up to me to fill his position and make sure that no more scandals hurt our office from now until the next election.

I would serve as the interim senator until the General Election in three months’ time. After that, the people would vote. If I won, I’d serve for the next six years.

Thanks to Nathan Blanchet’s traitorous deal, my career was on a fast track to success. If he wasn’t a traitor and a felon, I’d thank him for what he’d done for me.

Walking back to my desk, I opened one of the drawers. Two old pens and a few paperclips slid toward the front of the drawer, and I grinned.

This was all that was left of Nathan Blanchet’s term—a few leftover office supplies. I took a deep breath and started unpacking my box.

I set a picture of me, my older brother, and my grandfather on the corner of my desk and a cactus on the other. I put some books on the bookshelf that lined the eastern wall and tucked my favorite pen into the stationary drawer. Glancing around my office, a grin tugged at my lips. This was the beginning of something big.

A knock came from the doorway, and I saw the other senator for Maryland, Levi Whitehall, grinning at me like the Cheshire Cat. He was an older man with salt-and-pepper hair trimmed in a tight crew cut. He adjusted his tie and whistled.

“Nice office, Cat—or should I say Senator Crawford?”

“Cat is fine.” I grinned. “But Senator Crawford does have a nice ring to it.”

He extended his hand toward me and I shook it firmly. His eyes gleamed with fatherly pride. “I’m proud of you, Catherine. I remember when you started as my intern. It wasn’t that long ago, really.”

“And look at me now.” I smiled, spreading my arms out wide. “I guess I have Senator Blanchet to thank for that.”

Whitehall’s face darkened. “If I’d have known…” He shook his head, inhaling. “I should have figured it out. He was always sneaking around, and I knew he had contacts at the ports in Baltimore.”

“No one expected it, Levi. I have contacts at the ports in Baltimore—hell, my brother works there. But it doesn’t mean I’m making deals with the Russians.”

He nodded. “Well, I still should have seen it coming. I never liked that guy.” He tilted his head. “You ready for your first committee meeting?”

I scoffed. “Yeah, the Fisheries, Water and Wildlife Committee—lucky me. Senator Blanchet was serving on half a dozen Armed Services Committees, and I’m assigned to watch over the fish?”

Levi chuckled. “You’re green, and he was an embarrassment to the entire Senate. They’re not going to let that happen again. You’ll have to work your way from the bottom up. Plus, you said it yourself—you’ve got contacts at the ports. That’s related to the fisheries, right?”

I grunted in response, and Levi grinned.

“Oh, and Cat?”

I glanced at him, arching my eyebrow in question.

He nodded to my feet. “Might want to choose some more, uh, senatorial footwear.”
