Plot Summary

  • Anna Foster has never had an ordinary life. At eighteen years old, she is the most protected girl in America; she is the First Daughter. Frustrated with her overprotective father, the President of the United States of America, Anna makes a deal with him: only two agents are allowed to guard her while she attends a concert in Prague. When her father backs out of his promise, Anna flies into a temper and goes on the run with Ben Calder, a handsome photographer she runs into outside of the music club. They travel together with the intention of going to the Love Parade in Berlin. Anna hasn't told Ben who she is but more importantly, Ben hasn't told her who he is. Under the orders of Anna's father, Ben is supposed to keep an eye on the rebellious girl but falling in love with her wasn't something he expected to do. Romance blossoms between the wild, sassy Anna and the cool, distant Ben as they backpack through Europe. Problem is, when it is time to go back and Anna finds out about Ben, what will happen to the two lovers?

  • As the daughter of the US President since age twelve, eighteen year old Anna Foster has always faithfully carried out her diplomatic duties as requested, until now. Reaching young adulthood, she is now wanting a little freedom in her life, especially as she starts to date, not wanting a mass of secret service personnel, out in plain sight or hidden behind potted palms, watching her every move. For a state visit trip with her parents to Prague, Anna is able to negotiate with her father a one night only reduced security team as she hangs out with an old "diplomat brat" friend, Gabrielle, at a nightclub, which is much less freedom than she originally wanted, but to which her father would agree. On that night out, Anna finds that her father reneged on his promise, that breach which she considers grounds truly to get her freedom and run off to Berlin for the Love Parade, which is one of the things her father would not let her do. She is able to elude her secret service team with the help of a white knight, twenty-three year old Ben Calder, a British tourist. What Anna does not know is that Ben is actually part of her security detail for this trip. Ben's new instructions are to stay with her as her friend to ensure she is all right, while not divulging who he is, the two items which become increasingly incompatible as time progresses, and as they get into one misadventure after another. Anna starts to fall for Ben, her first true love, which may all change if she finds out who he is. Ben also starts to fall for her in return, which places him in a conundrum about how to reconcile his personal feelings with his professional obligations. Meanwhile, part of the secret service team that is following them are partners Alan Weiss and Cynthia Morales. Part of their regular banter includes Weiss' continual cheap come-ons to her, which may mask true feelings he has for her.
