When a fun-loving American nanny turns a millionaire British single dad's world upside down, it's inevitable life is going to get complicated.
Taking a break from screenwriting in New York City, Londyn Bellerose takes a nannying job in Colorado to get away from the hubbub. A summer to live without regrets is all she wants. While her boss is British, gorgeous, and a millionaire, he has no clue how to have fun. Determined to mend the relationship between father and daughters, Londyn doesn't expect to fall for the museum curator.
Londyn is American and everything Callum Archer swore to never fall for again. With her carefree spirit and energetic smile, she's perfect to nanny Callum's two daughters. The problem is she's also perfect for him. She's sassy, musical, and tends to speak her mind more than she means to.
When old history and new dreams threaten her happily ever after, will Londyn and Callum's love survive?
Hearts Abroad is book one in Skye McNeil's contemporary romance series, Atlas. Each book contains a millionaire to envy, snort-worthy comedy, and visits to many beautiful cities in the world. Yes, all of that, plus each novel ends with a fabulous HEA.
McNeil (Appointed by Fate) starts a contemporary series that only hints at her potential. When British single father and international museum curator Callum Archer needs a nanny for his Colorado summer home, he hires aspiring playwright and Iowa transplant Londyn Bellerose. Londyn, smarting from personal and professional rejection, is looking forward to a break from her theatrical attempts in New York, and she quickly falls in love with the two girls and their emotionally available but physically absent father. While Londyn pushes Callum to adjust his priorities, he struggles with her similarities to his ex, not wanting himself or his daughters to be hurt again. Londyn and Callum eventually become a charming couple, but flaws in the plot and characterization make it difficult to stay involved until that conclusion. The supporting characters include Callum's delightful daughters and Londyn's supportive best friend, but there are also three disappointingly caricatured maternal figures. Whirlwind emotional shifts and a strong sense of authorial wish fulfillment mask the stronger moments. Though McNeil's talent occasionally shines through, this story simply feels inconsequential.
Skye McNeil is a new author to me and I have no idea why she hasn’t crossed my radar before now, I really enjoyed Hearts Abroad and I will certainly be checking out her other books.

4.5 star review Hearts Abroad (The Atlas Series #1) by Skye McNeil
Skye McNeil is a new author to me and I have no idea why that is. I was engrossed from the first to the last chapter and frankly was disappointed when it ended. This was a fun, light hearted romance that had me smiling throughout my read.
Callum Archer is a single dad who hires Londyn Bellerose to be his children’s nanny for the summer.
What will happen when Londyn’s sunny personality and joy of life gets to the British millionaire? Callum is rather dour and serious all the time and yet there is something about the vibrant woman that attracts him. He is detached from his children and Londyn make it her business to bring them together.
Londyn is feisty and sassy and everything that Callum dislikes and she is not afraid to speak her mind when the occasion calls for it. Frankly I loved her personality and the banter between her and Callum made for some funny moments throughout.
Callum's children nearly stole the book on occasion; it just left me with a happy feeling when I finished the book.
If your looking for a fun, romantic light read then this may well be the one for you.
