Good book. Annie is in Louisiana posing as a nanny to help protect a little boy. She is also investigating who is making the threats against the family. When the threats continue in Louisiana Nate gets involved. He's pretty sure she's hiding something but he's certain that she isn't involved in the threats. Neither one expects the intense attraction between them and Annie is especially wary. The more time they spend together the more each one starts to hope for a future together.

I had the pleasure of sitting next to Liz Talley at the RWA's Librarian's Day luncheon. She has a delightful Southern-type accent and thoroughly baffled my Yankee self with a story involving her dog and a fence. It took me longer than I'd care to admit before I figured out that the aforementioned fence probably wasn't a chain-link like I was used to, but something more unique to Southern climes. In any case, I used my phone to request this title at my local library before I even left the table....more

This romantic suspense story, set in the bayous of Louisiana, is quite interesting. The reader is introduced to an undercover bodyguard (former FBI agent) who is acting as the nanny for a young boy who is the son of two famous people involved in making a movie set in the bayou. The boy is the subject of some threats against his life and the nanny needs to find out who is the culprit. The house where everyone is staying is quite interesting. The male romantic lead is caught up in the family dynam...more

This is the story of a private detective who goes undercover for a wealthy "Hollywood" family that has had threats on their sons life. The detective takes the newly vacant role of nanny to help solve the threats. Of course there is a hot police detective who is also trying to help solve the crime also. As most romances quick, easy and predictable.
I won this book in a goodreads giveaway. What a great read on Mothers' day! I started it early in the day and finished by the afternoon. The characters were likable and the story line was plausible. There were many ups and downs and the sub-story was heart warming on Mothers' day.
I was already a Liz Talley fan before I read this book so I wasn't at all surprised that I liked it. However it wasn't a mere like that kept my laundry unfolded and the floor unvacuumed, I couldn't put it down. This is my fave by her so far. Keep 'em coming Liz!!
Different and I enjoyed that a lot. Lot's of spelling mistakes which were annoying because they didn't look wrong but just used the wrong tense of a word which somehow made the word fit until you finished the sentence and realized it made no sense.
My life has always been papered with novels. From traditional Harlequin romances to epic books like Lonesome Dove, my reading interests are vast. I can't imagine a life without coffee, hot tamale candy and a book in hand. I write romance, but I read every genre...except sci-fi. But I can be persuaded.More about Liz Talley...
