I'm going to use the plot summary from the back of the book.
When heiress Victoria Templeton learns her fortune is gone, she has to move to the Colorado frontier to live with her uncle. but with no money to pay for the trip, she must accept a position as a traveling nanny for a widowed rancher. And, much to the chagrin of the man entrusting his children to her car, she soon finds herself in over her head.
Mitch MacLeod lives for two things: his ranch and his children. And pampered Victoria isn't qualified to help with either. But the former socialite has more grit-and determination-than he first thinks. If her uncle has his way, though, Mitch will soon lose his ranch-and any hope of a future with Victoria
I give this book a 5.
1: It was a romance book, but it was sweet and not all ooshy-gooshy! It was the perfect amount without going over any lines!
2:I loved the fact that a few times an element of suspense was thrown into the mix.
3: I loved the children. They added a lot to the story, and to the plot and how everything played out. And also how Mitch and Victoria both just accepted Emily like she was.
4: Rachel may not have had a huge part in every chapter, but she added something to the whole dynamic of the story. She was compassionate to the woman of ill-repute (no bad details given!) and also to her cousin who she seemed to empathize with even after knowing her for such a short time! It was one of my favorite things.
5: The masterful use of Pride, and the repeated Bible verse, it was beautifully woven into the work. It was really maybe more influencial to the story line than about anything else in the book! Well done!
