The Boss's Baby Affair (Silhouette Desire #2067) - Tessa Radley Nicholas Valentine returns home from overseas to learn that his six-month -old daughter, Jennie, has a new nanny. His beautiful baby girl scares him. His wife died, leaving him the sole guardian of Jennie. His whole life has shifted, and Nick needs some help. After their permanent nanny bails on them, Nick’s sister hires Candace.Candace Morrison is a registered nurse, and when she learns that Nick needs a nanny, she jumps in on the opportunity. Instantly she and baby Jennie forge a bond, and Candace struggles with her place in the Valentine home. Candace harbors secrets that can bring her stay with Nick and Jennie to a halt. Will she take a gamble and reveal all?Nick is a distant and remote, but he has his reasons. His wife had problems conceiving, and Nick believes she was having an affair that resulted in Jennie’s birth. Being the guardian of a baby he doesn’t feel is his own weighs Nick down. My heart went out to Nick as his story was revealed.Eventually, he strips off his hard mask and reveals a softer and more sensual side to everyone. The best part of the story is how Jennie brings Nick to his knees. It is so heart-warming to see Nick interact with Jennie: There was a moment of stillness when neither of them moved as they examined each other. Then Jennie gave a coo and stretched out a hand. Nick stilled. What did the past matter? This was a baby…innocent of it all. He touched her hand with one finger. Jennie’s hand clutched his forefinger. They gazed at each other. Nick held his breath. The silence in the nursery was absolute, the moment powerful and intense. The story has a lot of secrets, and once they are revealed and the characters are connected, readers will be surprised. Jennie, Nick, and Candace’s story will warm hearts and readers will cheer them on. The sexual build-up between Nick and Candace is intense. They don’t rush into their affair, but take time to get to know each other and get past one another’s defenses, making their HEA realistic.I can’t wait to see what’s next in this series of Billionaires and Baby books from Silhouette Desire.
