Beau Montgomery is not the typical single dad for three reasons:
1. He’s rich and famous.
2. He needs a nanny, like yesterday.
3. He has no idea if eight month old, Mia, is actually his daughter.
Only, number three doesn’t matter to him at all, because he’s determined to give up everything to be a standup dad, including racing, partying, and his very favorite vice, women. Until that is, he’s invited to race at Monaco—a dream he’s always had. Now, all those things he’d sworn to give up are at his fingertips, including the very inconveniently hot nanny, Landry Basnight, who’s travelling with him.
Landry Basnight is the typical college graduate for three reasons:
1. She’s broke and in debt up to her eyeballs.
2. She needs a job, like yesterday.
3. Nothing exciting ever happens in her life.
Only, number three is about to change, because she’s been hired by Beau Montgomery, son of NASCAR Racing Royalty. Landry’s parents are big fans of the Montgomerys, while she couldn’t care less—all she wants to do is make a dent in her student loan bill. However, that doesn’t stop her from falling in love with her little charge, nor does it make it easier to resist Beau’s charms. In fact , she doesn’t resist at all.
Lines are crossed and then forgotten as Beau and Landry grow closer, but when Beau’s ex-girlfriend, the woman he’s loved since high school, and Mia’s mother shows up, everything starts to fall apart for the new couple.
Will their love weather the storm, or will Beau abandon Landry for the family he’s always wanted?

A round of catcalls greet me as I walk in. Great. They’re turned on by the lipstick lesbian act.
“Excuse me, miss?” I turn my attention to the opposite side of the room. On the plush leather sofa sits one of the most gorgeous men I’ve ever seen. Dark blond hair, light eyes, and a mouth made for sinning greets me. But that’s not all… oh no, he has sort of a playboy business man thing going , wearing dark slacks and a light blue button down shirt, with the cuffs turned up to reveal muscled forearms.
I swallow. Down, Landry. He’s just another customer, is all. Nothing to write home about. Besides, I have a job to do, and money to make.
I sashay over to him. “What can I get you?”
He lifts his eyes to mine and I want to groan. It’s not fair for a man to have such pretty features. His eyes are grey and framed by lashes so thick and long that they should be on a contestant in a beauty pageant. That gaze of his stays right on my face, something unexpected in a bar and especially in a private room.
“What’s your name?” he asks, in a slow drawl that makes me think of hot summer nights and skinny
