When Charles Macquarrie inherits a fortune and an international clothing company, he also inherits three young cousins he desperately needs help raising. By a stroke of luck, he discovers and hires Jonathan Lamb, who spent his life in a children's home due to chronic illness, to be his nanny.
If Jon thought a budding romance with his wealthy boss complicated his life, he has no idea of the hardships awaiting him when he's charged with embezzlement and kidnapping. But even when threatened by accounting discrepancies and mob connections, Jon and Charles won't let go of the family they've built together without a fight.

Charles Macquarrie is a wealthy clothier that not only inherited his families business but his three young cousins. He has been through 12 nannies in less than 5 years and not sure what to do. His assistant Albert has hired a new one, this time, a young man from a Catholic orphanage.
Jon is quite content with his life but his Sisters think it's time for him to venture out, and this job seems to be a perfect opportunity for him, and it sounds the three young children need him. Jon is attracted to the wealthy businessman before they meet but knows he is a playboy and straight from all the pictures he sees.
Charles can't believe how well the kids take to Jon and how well they act. He soon finds himself attracted to the enigma that is Jon but can a playboy change and actually have a family?
Ok. This one is hard for me tor rate, so I went with my heart. There is a touch of mystery here as to the embezzlement and kidnapping charges. There's quite a few gaps, and I was left with several questions a to how this person pulled this off. I can't explain without spoilers. If I was rating on that I would give it a 3.
Now having said that...Jon, and the kids are absolutely charming. Charles is dashing and though a playboy he too has a good heart and was put in this position at a ver young age. The romance is sweet and clean and heartwrenching at times. I picked up the story in the afternoon and stayed up till the wee hours reading it. And that's why I have to rate this a 4.
If you are looking for a captivating sweet romance with a touch of mystery, and like stories where the kids have a good part I recommend this.
I was born on an Air Force base and I’ve been in flight ever since. My father took the family with him wherever he was stationed; Spain, Morocco, Turkey, and Alaska were among his postings. While studying commercial arts, I married a musician who turned out to be a pilot in disguise. Having no burning ambition of my own at the time, I devoted myself to his dream. His job as aircraft designer and competition pilot has taken us all over the world. I have now set foot on almost every continent (a personal life ambition), but I don’t hold out much hope for Antarctica anymore.
I have always loved to read. Since I was four, reading has been my favorite diversion and books my best friends. A few years ago, with my husband’s support, I set out to become a writer. I wrote every day and posted what I wrote at various Internet groups and later on livejournal. I cannot recommend this school of writing highly enough. The candid feedback I received was invaluable to my development. I kept working at it, and one day I received the most exciting e-mail ever. A publisher wanted to talk to me.
That’s pretty much it so far. There are a few fun facts like: my only child is a rescued Greyhound named Lizard, I live at a small grass airfield with a hang gliding school, I have what’s commonly referred to as a “photographic memory”, I collect words as a hobby, and my only nickname is “The Judge”.
Pleased to meet you.
