When you find your family, you'll do anything to keep it.

When Charles Macquarrie inherits a fortune and an international clothing company, he also inherits three young cousins he desperately needs help raising. By a stroke of luck, he discovers and hires Jonathan Lamb, who spent his life in a children's home due to chronic illness, to be his nanny.

If Jon thought a budding romance with his wealthy boss complicated his life, he has no idea of the hardships awaiting him when he's charged with embezzlement and kidnapping. But even when threatened by accounting discrepancies and mob connections, Jon and Charles won't let go of the family they've built together without a fight.

This was a sweet slow building romance between the very sexy Charles Macquarrie and sweet but forward Jonathan. Jon is 20 years old and has lived his whole life at the Blood of the Lamb Home for Children orphanage, but was very well loved by all the nuns, especially Sister Grace, who took care of him his whole life through chronic sickness and finally health. Jon was finally convinced by the nuns that it was time to leave and went in search of a job outside of the Home.

Jon builds an immediate and strong relationship with Charles’s wards Madeline, Holland, and Juliana. Charles who heads up his company Macquarrie International Clothier works hard and long into the night mostly staying away from the children leaving all care taking to Jon. Charles is determined to run the company the way his father had wanted even though his very strict and all business right hand man Albert disapproves. Charles also is determined to not have any emotional attachments to the kids he inherited. But Jon pushes, suggests, and befriends the distant Charles into trying to build a bond with the children. In the middle of that the family is on the run from unsavory people and the ruination of Charles’s company.

This was a sweet romance with a little heat and flirting between the two main characters, a little action to go along for the ride, and some fun secondary characters who add so much fun and lightness to the story.  It is a HEA for all concerned and everything tied up in a nice little bow which fit this story perfectly.
