The Nanny’s Secret-Elizabeth Lane

The Nanny’s Secret Elizabeth Lane Harlequin Desire, Jan 7 2014, $5.25 ISBN 9780373732906 In Dutchman’s Creek, Colorado, Wolf Ridge Ski Resort owner Wyatt Richardson advertises for a nanny to watch his sixteen year old daughter Chloe’s newborn Michael. Several candidates answered the former Olympian medalist’s ad in the Dutchman’s Creek Sentinel, but none seemed suited. His last interview is with part-time local reporter Leigh Foster, whose only experience with infants is baby-sitting. She affirms his opinion that she needs the money, but desperate and at the hospital with Chloe’s bitter approval he hires the twenty-six years old. Leigh learns immediately that Chloe is spoiled and filled with rage at her dad for not ever being in her life and with her mom for choosing New York with her lover over seeing her new granddaughter. As Wyatt and Leigh begin to fall in love, she fears he will kick her to the curb when he discovers The Nanny’s Secret as to why she really wanted this position. The latest Billionaires and Babies romance (see A Billionaire for Christmas by Janice Maynard) is a wonderful family affair with the title character, the father and teen daughter fully developed. Although Leigh’s hidden agenda seems inane, fans will enjoy this warm contemporary. Harriet Klausner
