The beautiful young widow of the President of the United States thought she was free of the White House, but circumstances have forced her back into the role of the First Lady. Not for long, however, because Cornelia Litchfield Case has made up her mind to escape - if only for a few days - so she can experience an ordinary life. All she needs is the perfect disguise . . . and she's just found it.
Journalist Mat Jorik is a pushover for females in trouble. He's already agreed to ferry his late ex-wife's daughters across the country when he takes pity on a pretty hitchhiker. He offers her a ride in return for her care of the baby and teenager. Cornelia accepts his offer, little realising that she's about to lose her heart to two kids and a not-so-perfect stranger. Only the Secret Service is hot on her trail and it's just a matter of time before Mat discovers that the woman he thinks he's rescued is actually the scoop of a lifetime . . .
