A rock star. The nanny. A love that could rock their world.
The only thing rock star Marcus Troy loves more than making music is his kids. So finding just the right nanny to take on tour with them is important—as is proving to his ex he deserves joint custody. Falling for his employee wouldn’t just be fodder for the paparazzi: it could ruin everything.
Too bad the perfect nanny turns out to be beautiful, vibrant Ryan Evans. Ryan’s never left her small Montana town before, so she jumps at the chance to see the country. And as much as accidental fame doesn’t gel with shy Ryan, what does is her relationship with her capricious, smoking-hot, shockingly good dad of a boss. Marcus is nothing like what she expected. But when the whole world’s watching them, will life in the spotlight be too hot to handle?
Marcus checked out his reflection in the rearview
mirror. Maybe Bianca was right. Was it mature to conduct
an interview in his underwear? Was it mature to sabotage
an important tour by chasing away a prospective nanny that
a trusted employee had personally vouched for? Are you an
adult, Marcus Troy? he thought. Or are you really no good,
like your ex-wife is constantly saying?
Marcus checked the road again. There was no sign of
the red truck. He was almost at 206, the turnoff to Glacier
National Park. He’d driven almost fifteen miles at about
eighty-five miles an hour; if he hadn’t caught up with Ryan
by now, he probably wasn’t going to. She must have taken
82 after all. The instincts he had relied on his whole life had
been wrong, and now his kids wouldn’t have a nanny for the
Just after the 206 turnoff, he pulled into Woody’s, a
Montana gas station/general store that sold everything from
camouflage “Cougar for Hire” baseball caps to live fishing
bait to alcoholic energy drinks that had been banned in
California years earlier. God, he loved this state.
Marcus had planned to pull a u-ey in the Woody’s lot,
but something, or someone, rather, caught his attention in
the rearview mirror: a long-legged woman walking toward
him in sneakers and clingy jeans that showed off her athletic
legs. First, this was just Marcus being Marcus, unable to tear
his eyes away from the sudden appearance of a hot girl.
But then he saw that this particular hot girl was wearing a
sweater with a big-ass ugly acorn right in the middle of it.
He got out, slammed the car door, and jogged over to
her. “Ryan?” he said.
“Mr. Troy?” She didn’t look pleased. “What are you
“Where’s your red truck?”
She pointed behind her. “I parked it back there, because
I had to use the restroom. What’s it to you? Did you…follow
“Listen, you may have noticed that I am wearing a full
set of clothes right now.”
“Yes, I noticed.” She wasn’t smiling, but she wasn’t
frothing at the mouth, either. Maybe Marcus had a shot.
“Can we try that interview again? For real this time?”
