Ruby Campbell isn't daunted at the prospect of working as a Nanny for the notorious Barclay Rothchester. She’s warned he’s a strict control freak, but she’s sure she can soften him up.

Barclay Rothchester lost his wife three years ago. Of course he’s never going to find someone to replace her role, the one she did so perfectly. He’s sure its not going to be hippy dippy Ruby with her sass and rebellious ways.

Ruby is determined to give his daughters the Christmas they deserve. Now if only she can tolerate their father long enough to make that happen.

Are they both willing to put their stubborn pride aside, or will they risk losing the one gift that can't be wrapped: each other.

*Audiobook Review*

This was such a cute yet steamy holiday romance. With a sassy nanny coming to work for a gruff and grouchy widower and his two girls it was a good basis for this book. This new to me author pulled it off quite nicely. The leading lady Ruby was an excellent nanny and her affection for the girls was obvious. Another element I enjoyed was the slow burn of the romance between Ruby and the leading man Barclay. While this story definitely wasn't clean, it wasn't instant jumping into bed either. I felt like there was real development in the relationship and opportunities for them to get to know each other despite the somewhat short time frame in which the story took place. I also laughed a lot with this story and I can always appreciate that in my romance. Ruby and her antics had me laughing out loud often.

The narrator for this story was really good. She was also new to me but she was really fun to listen to. She had a good range in the voices she provided for the different characters. Her male voice may not be my favorite but she wasn't bad either.
