Why is gorgeous, rich movie star, Quinn Roberts, living with a baby he calls “Junior”, if it isn’t his own? Susanna Barnes, his beautiful, live-in nanny, can’t figure him out and Quinn refuses to comment. Though wildly attracted to him, his distance from the adorable child puts Susanna off.
Daughter of a famous college basketball coach and an assistant art curator at a well-known art museum, Susanna lost it all at the hands of a drunk driver. Forced to find a new way to earn a living, she relies on her experience with her sister’s kids to show Quinn she can take charge.
Their overwhelming mutual heat challenges his guarded heart and her reserve. They inch closer until a slip of the tongue shatters his dreams and destroys any chance for a relationship. Will Susanna unravel the mystery of Junior’s birth? Can she do penance for a career-wrecking mistake?
A snippet from the book:
Junior was asleep in the stroller. Susanna crept up behind Quinn, who jumped when she spoke. “Got an aversion to clothes?” She blurted out.
He leapt into the air, grabbing the towel at his waist. “Whoa! What are you doing here?”
“Shhhh. I live here now, remember?” She whispered, gesturing toward the sleeping baby.
A devilish gleam shone from his eyes as he approached her. Susanna backed away slowly, but Quinn kept coming.
“It’s weird to have a beautiful woman in my house who’s not here with…for…staying with me.” He blushed, casting his gaze at the dishes in his hand.
Open mouth, insert foot, Quinn? She chuckled behind her hand before placing it on his forearm. “I know, right? I was going to say sort of the same thing. I mean, having dinner with a gorgeous guy who wasn’t going to jump me afterward.”
