In this contemporary romance a young American heiress has a very public, disastrous affair which causes embarrassment to her billionaire family to such an extent that they send her on "vacation" to an unnamed Middle East country until the media interest has died down. To the man assigned to accompany her and protect her she epitomizes the kind of American tourist with too much wealth, in a land dominated by poverty that he despises. Over a few days in the country the American surprises the bodyguard a number of times by acting contrarily from his stereotype; then an armed rebellion breaks out on the streets and the airport is closed. The two are ambushed trying to return to their hotel, but an explosion enables them to escape and spend the night in his apartment where he learns more about the insecurities of this likeable and quite vulnerable girl. There is more excitement in this short story the next day when they escape another kidnap attempt before they are able to return to the safety of their hotel. They both realize the strengths of the other and are beginning to fall deeply in love.
