“Sexy, heartfelt--did I mention sexy? With the perfect touch of the forbidden, Melanie Harlow has outdone herself with single dad Mack and Frannie’s story!”
-- Ilsa Madden-Mills, Wall Street Journal bestselling author
I’m a full-time single dad to three daughters and CFO at Cloverleigh Farms. I don’t have time to fall in love—I’m too busy trying to run a business, keep the red socks out of the white laundry, and get the damn pillowcases on without owing a dollar to the swear jar. Sure, Frannie Sawyer is beautiful and sweet, but she’s twenty-seven, the boss’s daughter, and my new part-time nanny—which means she’s completely off-limits. It’s bad enough I can’t stop fantasizing about her, what kind of jerk would I be if I acted on the impulse to kiss her? (Exactly the kind of jerk you’re thinking.) Actually, I’m worse than that—because I didn’t stop with a kiss, and now I can’t stay away. She makes me feel like myself again. She reminds me what it’s like to want something just for me. She’s everything I ever needed, but nothing I ever imagined. I’m a former Marine. I should have had the strength to resist her from the start. But I didn’t. And now I have to choose between the life I want and the life she deserves. Even if it means giving her up.

Excerpt:I was holding my breath. I wasn’t even sure why, but it was something about the way Mack was looking at me. And the tension in his body—the taut muscles in his neck. The grip of his fingers on the edge of the counter. The set of his jaw. It gave the impression of restraint. Like he was holding himself back. Something unfamiliar hummed in the air between us. I could feel it—he wanted me the way I wanted him. No wonder I couldn’t breathe. Then he cleared his throat and turned away from me, cutting off the current. “Sure. Everybody needs to make mistakes now and then.” I’d forgotten I’d even asked the question. He turned the sink on, rinsed his dishes, and placed them in the dishwasher. I stood there staring at his muscular back, at the width of his shoulders, at the snug fit of his jeans on his butt. If I were his and he were mine, I’d go over and wrap my arms around his waist, press my cheek to his back. Then he’d turn around, winding his arms around me. He’d lower his lips to mine, and— “I should get you home,” he said, interrupting my fantasy. “Want to grab your coat?” “Sure.” But I didn’t really want to leave. I wanted to stay in this warm, chaotic house with him and the girls. Pretend I belonged here. Pretend I belonged to him.
Can a full-time single dad of three adorable girls ever hope to love again? Can he ever hope to sleep late again?
Mack is our adorable dad. When his ex-wife dumped him and the girls and moved far away, he was left on his own to raise his three daughters Millie, Felicity, and Winnie. He loves them more than life even if he is going out of his mind while trying to keep them healthy and safe. All three are precocious and very opinionated. They do not hold back and let him know what they are thinking. With a swear jar that keeps growing, he does the best he can even if he still does not know how to cook anything tasty.
Frannie is the daughter of Mack's boss. She is the object of his late night fantasies. Even though Frannie is the sweetest woman and most beautiful he has ever met, he cannot make himself approach her for a date. He keeps second-guessing himself because he is ten years older, he has the three girls, etc. Mack feels he has nothing to offer Frannie other than all his baggage.
Frannie, on the other hand, cannot stop daydreaming about Mack. She will do anything to be around him and the girls. She is always there to help when he needs her. She babysits for him two days a week and she would do more if he would let her.
This is a feel good, lovely, fractured fairy tale. Never did happily ever after envision this much happiness with three young children playing fairy godmothers!
