Everything can change in the blink of an eye.
Widower Robert Stone had lost everything—and that was before the tragic news of his son and daughter-in-law's death shattered his world, leaving him five grandchildren to raise on top of running a failing ranch. Overwhelmed and on the verge of selling his legacy, Robert can't focus on love. Not even if the nanny he'd hired is exactly his type.
Love was never on the table for Paige Griffin no matter how much she might have wanted it. Too late to have children of her own, she fills that void via her passion for working with children. Paige brings a warmth and understanding that the children desperately need and at the same time softening the heart of this hardened cowboy.
While Paige's nurturing presence begins to heal Robert's soul and strengthens his resolve to save the ranch, her continued presence could cost them more than either bargained for.

Great story. Robert has suffered so much sorrow and now is in charge of raising his five grandsons. Paige is a nanny so she can fulfill her love for children. They are wonderful characters that are immediately attracted to each other but fight their feelings and try to stay professional. While trying to save his ranch, he loses sight of what is really important. This prequel tells their story before the boys are grown and have their own stories. I really enjoyed reading this. I received a free copy of this book and this is my voluntary, honest review.
