Maternity nanny Naomi Hamilton comes to New York City during Christmastime to help her friend Merida Devereux (and her husband Ethan) with their newborn baby, Ava. Naomi is excited to be in NYC, since she has never been out of the UK. On her first night, staying at the Devereux family home, she meets Abe Devereux (gorgeous Manhattan tycoon and brother of Ethan). She thinks he is more beautiful than anyone she has ever seen. They both share a pizza and talk for some of the night. Abe is usually a

The title fits. Heroine was a Cinderella. The hero is a billionaire. It takes place at Christmas. But there is a little more substance to the story than that. And in the end, it's kind of a tear-jerker so be warned.

Our jet-lagged heroine is the bff of the heroine from book one in this series. She arrives in NYC to work - to be a temporary nanny for book one H/h's newborn. Hero is the older brother and is considered even more cold and ruthless than his sibling. We saw his cynicism about his brot

“the answer’s no.’
He didn’t get it, he just didn’t. ‘I’ve told you, I’m no good at relationships.’
‘Then you’re no good for me.”

I loved the heroine. <3 She was real sweetheart and has a backbone. I liked the hero. He looked cold but not with her. And I loved the book. It’s little bit old fashioned and sugary sweet but it reminded the fairy tales. Maybe I have needed a fairy tale and it came right on time. :)

Rating 3.5

Abe was a closed off and cold individual. A Mother who was all about herself and not nurturing at all, she died when Abe was nine years old. And his Father wasn't much better a man who was distant and never really there contributed to the issue that Abe had. Now Abe's Father is terminally ill and he's struggling with the fear of losing his father and what if's.

Naomi is a sweet, caring and strong heroine. She grew
Sweet Cinderella Christmas story. Wish it had an epilogue with babies. Both hero and heroine are super nice.

Sweet but a little slow in the romance department.

Considering I didn't like the hero Abe Devereux of what was shown of him in the previous book --The Innocent's Shock Pregnancy (TISP) that was about his younger brother Ethan-- to my surprise I liked him a lot in this book. It's because CM did a great job of walking us through his feelings and thoughts that were very emotional and showed us that the most closed-off, cold and ruthless of the Devereux men comprising of him, his father and Ethan, did have a human side. I also loved the deep

The Billionaire’s Christmas Cinderella by Carol Marinelli is a sweet and sensual holiday romance for a hardened businessman and the baby nanny who captures his heart!

Naomi has come to New York to help her friend Merida with her newborn baby. She specializes in care for new babies and has no home base, moving from one job to the next but never sticking around for long. She grew up in a series of foster homes so she knows that getting attached only leads to heartbreak. Staying in the Devereux fami

Abe Devereux is the elder brother of the Ethan Devereux ( H in Innocent's Shocked Pregnancy). Abe was the the brother who protected Ethan from the Mother's neglectful ways as a result his callous attitude on women evolved. He had no heart... He was a gorgeous scrooge. Naomi was the h with a soft heart, precious and rare. She was a Birth Nanny and also a friend of Merida (Ethan's wife). From the moment this couple met life changed for them. Abe's black heart started to heal and Naomi was awoken f ...more

Naomi is just adorable, ‘oh, I’d love to see it…’ Naomi said, but it came out wrong. ‘I meant Greenwich Village is on my to-do list…’Not the view from his bedroom window." Abe is just a charming man at times, ‘no,’ he said immediately, his voice dripping with sarcasm. ‘We’ll have separate rooms and play charades at night. Of course we’ll sleep together.’ I liked this book, I loved Abe.

Abe is a playboy who does not believe in love and Naomi is a very innocent heroine. Naomi comes to work as a nanny to take care of her friend and her friend’s baby. While there, she meets Abe and they start to spend some time together. I liked that Abe never mistreats Naomi or thinks that her innocence is a lie. From the very beginning, Abe starts to fall in love with Naomi and he begins to clean his act. Though he keeps on denying his interest in Naomi, he continuously looks out for her and eve ...more

Abe is a billionaire who doesn't show his emotions. Then he meets, Naomi, his brother's nanny and everything changes. A fun tale of how two people determined never to fall in love found each other. Thank you, Netgalley.

Now this was is the type of Harlequin Presents a reader can enjoy. Interesting unique plot and likeable characters with a dash of romance and hot steamy sex. A definite 4 star book.

Enjoyable romantic read.
Sissy's Romance Book Review
The Billionaire's Christmas Cinderella by Carol is the story of Abe and Naomi.
Abe is a distant cold person due to his mother's lack of love for him and his father who seem to be indifferent to them. Abe did have a brother who he tried to protect. Naomi grew up in foster care but she isn't bitter and has went forward to help new mothers with their babies for the first few months of their birth. When her friend is about to have a baby she goes to help her and meets her friends brother in-law, Abe

I'm giving this one 4.5 stars because I really just loved it. A Cinderella story set in a snowy New York at Christmas, filled with emotions and heartbreak. Couldn't pull myself away till I finished. Yes, it was a typical M & B romance, yes it was filled with angst, yes it's been done before. ❤❤❤

For tycoon Abe Devereux, women have their uses but none of those uses include marriage. When he meets his brother's new nanny, Naomi Hamilton, he sets out to add her to his conquests. Naomi, on the other hand, sees no reason to reach for anything beyond her station in life. When her best friend hires her to be her newborn nanny, she expects to spend six weeks with the family. She doesn't expect to be pursued by Abe.

Can two people with major trust issues learn that not every man runs from respon
