What is it about a baby? What’s this power they have to turn even the most cynical hero to cooing, adoring mush? Little babies can be noisy, messy, smelly and demanding. No matter. As soon as that little fist closes around his manly finger, our hero hasn’t got a chance.
Pair a baby with a rich, powerful man and a heroine who could be your best friend, and you have Harlequin Desire’s Billionaires and Babies series. I’m new to the line (THE NANNY’S SECRET is my third Desire and my second Billionaires and Babies book), but I’ve already discovered how much fun happens when baby meets alpha male. I love writing about these little scene-stealers, and as the mom of three and grandma of three more, I don’t have to go very far for inspiration. The possibilities are endless.
Not every baby is born under ideal conditions. That’s what THE NANNY’S SECRET is about. Little Mikey enters this world as the result of a teenage blunder. Chloe, his unmarried sixteen-year-old mother loves him and wants to keep him, but she’s still a child herself. Wyatt Richardson, Chloe’s wealthy father, is still young, virile and handsome. The last thing he expected to be is a grandfather. Worse, he has no idea how to cope with a willful teenage girl and her newborn that his ex-wife literally dumped on his doorstep.
Enter an unlikely nanny, challenged with helping these three become a family. Mary Poppins she isn’t. In fact, her lack of experience with babies rouses Wyatt’s suspicions about her motives. But her devotion to little Mikey and her determination to give him a good start in life go far beyond what might be expected of hired help. Not only does she take care of Mikey—she does everything to make sure Wyatt and Chloe bond with the little boy.
Mikey’s sexy grandfather begins to see her as more than a nanny...much more. But the beautiful Miss Leigh Foster is not what she seems. The secret she hides is powerful enough to turn all their lives upside-down.

THE NANNY’S SECRET
In this Billionaires and Babies novel, the nanny wants her boss...but can she have him and keep her secrets, too?
Haughty and handsome, resort owner Wyatt Richardson has never met a problem he couldn’t buy his way out of. Facing custody of his teenage daughter and her newborn son, he hires a nanny to handle them both. His attraction to Leigh Foster is an unexpected perk. He’s confident the feeling is mutual.
But Leigh knows she’s on shaky ground. Falling for her new boss could prove devastating—especially if Wyatt finds out her true connection to baby Mikey. But when the billionaire’s arms beckon, will she be powerless to refuse?
