The Nanny Proposition
Harlequin Desire, Aug 5 2014, $5.25
In Los Angeles at Sacred Heart Hospital a midwife informs stunned botanist Liam Hawke that he is the father of two day old Bonnie, whose mother Rebecca Clancy dies from complications. One look at the infant convinces confirms in his mind Bonnie is his daughter although he had no idea that when he and Rebecca ended their relationship she was pregnant.
Rebecca’s parents want to raise their granddaughter, but so does Liam. He hires his brother Dylan’s housekeeper Jenna Peters as the new nanny and his personal parenthood coach. With Dylan’s approval, she accepted the position because she can keep her eight month old infant Meg with her instead of at a daycare facility. As the adults fall in love with each other and with both babies, Jenna hides her secret that before she became pregnant out of wedlock, she was Princess Jensine Larson of Larsland.
The latest Billionaires and Babies (see His Lover's Little Secret by Andrea Lawrence) is a fun contemporary starring two likable leads supported by babies who cry and fuss. Although the plausibility is over the top of the Hollywood sign; The Nanny Proposition is a warm engaging drama as two single parents and their infants become a family of four.
