Absolutely perfect. I loved reading the early chapters as part of Rosalind James' newsletter and the book lived up to my expectations.

Zora Fletcher is a widow with an eight year old son called Isaiah. Her husband Dylan was a rugby player who played for the Auckland Blues. One day her son literally runs his trolley into the car of Dylan's older brother Rhys, who has returned to New Zealand (or En Zed as they like to say) after years abroad playing rugby, now he's the new coach for the Blues and has just moved into the area.

Just as Zora and Rhys are getting acquainted Rhys receives a bombshell, he has a six year old daughter in the US that he never knew about and her mother has been killed in a road traffic accident. At first he denies everything but one look at a photo of the little girl and he knows she's a Fletcher - but not his! To save his niece from a life in foster care, and to protect his sister-in-law, Rhys acknowledges the little girl, Casey, as his own and brings her back to En Zed.

Picture this, a big gruff manly man, the sort who can bulldoze through his opposition, and a girly girl who loves Moana, unicorns and bunnies. A man with no sisters learning to braid long hair. Rhys leans heavily on Zora to advise him on what to do but also to help with childcare while he is away with the team.

Rhys is just the nicest man ever. He's so determined to do the right thing and to look after this little girl that has come into his life. He pushes himself and others, yet he is also thoughtful and observant, doing the little things like buying food for dinner and washing up which mean so much to a working mother.

Zora is kind and funny, a great mother, practical and incredibly creative, I would have loved to see some of the floral arrangements that she makes for her customers.

Don't let me forget the smexy times because hoo-wee they were hot-hot-hot. Rhys might be all restrained emotions and practicality but he has a vivid imagination and an ability to read body language honed from years of playing rugby and watching his opponents.

I love this series and it just gets better and better, romance, cute moppets, rugby, sexy moments and fluffy bunnies - absolute bliss.
