A new career was just the change Leila Hilson’s life needed. Her love of children helped her decide upon being a live-in nanny. With the help of her brother, Leila lands a position with a rancher who has an eight-year old daughter. She’s nervous about leaving her family for the unknown, but Leila is positive things will work out. After meeting her new boss, Leila is positive that she can’t load up her luggage and get away from the horrible man fast enough.

Clayton Moore is a widower, who loves his daughter more than anything in the world. If he could keep the little girl happy and protected on their isolated ranch without another soul, Clayton gladly would. After a fiasco with the last nanny, Clayton hopes that Leila is the right woman for the job. In less than five minutes of meeting her, Clayton is torn between tossing her off his property and tossing her into his bed.

Getting off on the wrong foot doesn’t stop the attraction from growing between Clayton and Leila. However, the intrusion of other people and their boss-employee status does cause a few stumbling blocks for Leila and Clayton. Leila put up a good fight but once Clayton made up his mind, it was a done deal. Clayton’s daughter, Sam, was such a cutie that I wanted to take her under my wing. It moved me to see the changes that Leila made in Sam’s life. Never underestimate the power of a woman’s touch. Clayton was a wonderful father, but he certainly needed some guidance. That man is one doable daddy who found his match in Leila. She held her own and turned out to be made of stronger stuff than I originally thought. There are a few supporting characters in this story who add an element of unexpected danger and a twist that could lead to another story. Marie Rochelle has created another happily-ever-after romance, with a family appeal. If you have never read a Marie Rochelle story, Roped Into You is a great one to start with.
