Reeling from loss and heartbreak, Stella King is desperate to escape painful memories. The position of nanny on an isolated ranch in British Columbia’s rugged Chilcotin Plateau seems the answer to her prayers.

Cattle rancher, Dawson Wheeler, has worked hard to overcome grief and build a predictable world for his young daughter. The last thing he needs is the all-too-attractive Stella disrupting the smooth running of his ranch, especially now that disturbing incidents are happening on his property.

Defending his land against those who want to gut it will be a challenge, but the biggest threat of all may be to his heart.

I love this story trope, “single dad falls in love with child care provider” because there’s something about it that always pulls at my heartstrings. Perhaps it’s because I’m a nanny myself and can visualize being the leading character.

First, I’ll talk about Stella, the heroine. Her kind of loss and heartbreak is not the type that anyone wants to endure. I can’t imagine going through what she went through, so to say “she cries a lot” isn’t fair because I imagine I’d be a hot mess if I were in her shoes. There were a few times I thought “not again”… but then had to remind myself that I’d probably cry too. If a reader is a “pull up your big girl pants” kind of person then this book wouldn’t be for you. If a reader is a sympathetic and empathetic person, then this book is should work for you.

The hero, Dawson, is also going to require a sensitive type reader to fall in love with his character because he too experienced loss and heartbreak that was life changing. Dawson’s sweet little girl, Deirdre, the one Stella is nannying for, is like your average five-year-old. As cute as she was, there is one scene she was in that was a stretch of reality, but I went with it.

As if the reader isn’t dealing enough with the complex narrative of the characters dealing with learning about, and connecting with, one another, the author slides in another plot twist. Now more characters are introduced and have to intermingle with everyone else. This addition leads to the set-up of the suspense/mystery thread. Dawson’s land is being threatened and the path of the plot twist leads back to … I’m not telling. All I will say is that it’s very intriguing, to say the least. I was surprised and impressed with the flow of sequences.

The story was well written and entertaining. My one personal gripe was the back and forth see-saw of “I’m going home!” to “No, I’m not going home” and back again. It was just a little headache inducing. Otherwise, I really enjoyed the story. This was my first C.B. Clark book and I’d certainly consider reading another story by this author.

If you are looking for a little sensual romance with a few “sit on the edge of your seat” moments then this book qualifies. I think if readers enjoy dramas with high emotion, then I’d recommend picking up this story. Dawson and Stella couldn’t be better matched to heal each other’s hearts!


  1. Another wonderful review with enough detail to intrigue me, but not enough to spoil the book for me.
