 Danielle The Book Huntress (Self-Proclaimed Book Ninja)
This was a cute Christmas book. It seemed a little lighter than usual for Sara Craven, until the evil ex shows up and it gets real. And that woman was wretched! I can't imagine how much Dominic regrets marrying her, except for his daughter. When it's just Phoebe, Dominic and Tara, this almost has a sweet feel, a family oriented holiday romance. It's nicely steamy in parts, but appropriate to the subject matter. Phoebe is perfectly likable, an orphan with a bit of a Cinderellaesque feel. Dominic ...more
Sixteen year old Phoebe was a shy good girl when she made a terrible friend and her life was ruined. She’s conned, and ends up drunk and naked in some man’s bed. It’s all pretty nasty really, with the guy she thought liked her undressing her and feeling her up while she’s out of it, and her non-friend being all ‘stop touching that loser, you get to have me’ while various other personages stand around and laugh and probably comment on her boobs and bits.

When Phoebe wakes up, there’s a man. His n

3 1/2 Stars ~ When Phoebe was a very vulnerable 16, she'd had a crush on a young man who was only playing her along. He and his friends set her up as a prank on his elder step-brother, leading to her humiliation and scarring her with nightmares of the step-brother's demeaning treatment of her. Now 6 years later, having finished her university and looking for a job as a librarian, she takes a temporary job as a waitress in a tea room. A young girl comes in each afternoon and Phoebe becomes her ...more

With the title containing nannies and Christmases, I wasn’t expecting Sara Craven to be the author!

And shockingly, the H turned out to be a nice, almost mild guy, so I was getting more disoriented.
Alternately, the h was snarky, prickly with multiple chips on shoulders, but still relatable and likable. The H showed an awful amount of patience to her rudeness.
“I'm not hungry,' she snapped.
'Truly?' His smile widened. 'You look to me as if you're ready to take a bite out of something.”

More drama than romance, this explores the complicated relationship between two people at odds over an unfortunate incident that happened years previously. While they hate each other, of course soon fate intervenes and they are forced together against their will. Naturally, they come a new appreciation of each other and realise how badly they misjudged each other.

I really liked Phoebe's strength and determination in the face of almost total ruin, and Dominic's ambiguity throughout kept me guessi

Actually 3,5 star. Nice story, loved H/h interaction and the dry humour. But the ending was too rushed. The ex wife conflict and the solution was cramped in the last two chapters. Phoebe didn't even get the chance to tell Dom the truth about that night.

This is a reissue from 1998. It was good, but felt a little dated. I didn't mind the phone booth thing, but the heroine's age and the overall issue bugged me some.
