An action-packed, emotional ride!
This is book 7 in the Hellfire series and it features Tony and Lily. I am so impressed with Lily. She is a total bada**! Anytime you have kids as cute as Robbie and Mari, you know the story is going to be fantastic. As Lily is hired as an Au Pair for Tony’s kids, what happened next in Costa Rica was unexpected. I actually thought the hotel manager would be a problem.
This is an emotional, action packed, sweet and sexy romance that includes a couple of adorable kids. I enjoyed the read from beginning to end and I can’t wait to visit Hellfire, Texas again.
I love this series!
Another exciting intense read in the Hellfire series. Tony learns to be more loving, tough and he is yummy. Lily can be a spitfire when she wants to be. Of course there has to be someone trying to cause problems but nothing they can ultimately handle. I enjoyed reading this story.

As much as she loves her hometown, Hellfire, she doesn’t want to be stuck there during the summer. Lily wants to travel, enjoy new experiences, and see the world before she settles down.
Antonio Delossantos, a lonely widower, is in need of a nanny for the summer. Tony, an extremely successful rancher/businessman, has no one to watch his kiddos for the summer as Rosa is ill and won’t be able to travel. When Tony goes to pick up his son from school, he meets Lily. Although she puts him in his place, he likes her determination and spunk. After witnessing her Krav Maga skills, Tony decides Lily is the perfect nanny for his children. So he makes her an offer she can’t refuse...
While I have yet to read a novel in the Hellfire series, I can certainly vouch for this novel. It’s a well written, suspenseful, page-turning novel. I enjoyed Tony’s interactions with his children and his realization of all the time he’s “missed” with them while grieving the loss of his wife. Lily’s empathy, compassion, courage, and love shown towards Tony’s children was a huge plus for me. I also loved that the story didn’t feel rushed. I highly recommend this novel. I read a gifted copy and all opinions stated are my own.
