Sally loved her job — and her tough, crusading boss. She was determined to protect him. She just didn’t know how vicious his enemies were!

From the back:

Sally went to work for Brian Barton, the dedicated consumer advocate, with stars in her eyes. To her, he was the finest man in the world, even if he was too wound up in his work to give her all the love she wanted. She learned, too late, that Brian had powerful, implacable enemies who would do anything they could to ruin him… And that they would use her as their totally helpless weapon!
