First-term U.S. Senator Lance Michaels resists his campaign team involving his high school reunion in a re-election bid. He prefers keeping politics separate from his personal life. But his planned brief visit at the event goes awry when he runs into Kate Taylor.
In the guise of a visiting alumna, Kate works undercover in order to jump from tabloid reporter to mainstream media. To succeed she must uncover dirt on the senator before the November election.
Their attraction burns hotter than a Washington scandal and could put both their careers in jeopardy. When the smoke clears, nobody can guess who will be left standing.
