Struggling film student Kitty Shakespeare is determined to make the most of her new job as nanny to major producer Everett Klein's son, Jonas. It might not be exactly the career she'd hoped for when she moved from London to LA, but thanks to her habit of freezing up in interviews, this is her last chance to impress a key player in Hollywood – if she can get this right, then surely he'll take a moment to look at her work. However, what Kitty hasn't allowed for is Everett's sexy-as-hell brother, Adam – but love at first sight this is not.

Adam Klein may be sexy, but he's also gruff and rude and in no way ready to make a fool of himself over the nanny – not after the year he's had. All he wants to do hole up in his cabin and hide from the brother who destroyed his life. If only he could find it easier to ignore the way Kitty makes his heart race

As Christmas approaches, Kitty and Adam come to realise that the course of true love never does run smooth – and just maybe, it's more interesting that way...



Kitty is looking for an internship but instead ends up working as a nanny for a film producer and when they go to Virginia for the Christmas holidays Kitty goes with them.

Her first meeting with Adam, her employer's brother, does not go well, they dislike each other on sight.  He's very rough, full of contempt for her and was not a gentlemen .... though he was gorgeous!

During the holidays, Kitty is busy with looking after her charge, while Adam is trying to avoid his brother after they had a huge falling out over the summer.  He blows hot and cold with Kitty, he is having therapy due to his bust up, and there is plenty of tension in the family because of their disagreement.

There are highs and lows to their story.....

I loved this book, I immediately warmed to Kitty, she is so lovely and compassionate, and the little boy she looks after is adorable, not some spoiled kid.  She goes sledding and has snowball fights with him.  And he adores his Uncle Adam.  

A heart warming story, with characters that I cared about, in a romantic snowy setting.  Perfect for curling up with in front of a warm fire.
