Texas heiress Vivienne Stansfield's dream of being a bride was about to come true. But in a startling change of fortune, her safe, reliable fiance proves himself to be neither-and her wealthy, eccentric father disappears, leaving her with no money, no explanations, and no choice but to find a job. Determined to prove that she isn't the pampered princess the tabloids say she is, she seeks the position of nanny for sexy real estate mogul Max Landry's young sisters. With to-die-for clothes and a heart as pure as her gold charm bracelet, Vivi steps up to the challenge. But how to resist her irresistible employer?
Max needs a nanny. But the last person he wants is a knockout who doesn't know the first thing about taking care of herself, much less two young girls. But once she arrives, he learns that there is more to Vivi than her short skirts and high heels imply. And when she asks Max to teach her about the game of life and passion, this strong-willed man realizes that he wants to play for real, for keeps-and he has no intention of losing this woman's surprisingly fragile heart.
