Just out of college and completely alone in the world, Maggie Montgomery has one shot left to save her life from an abyss of poverty and hopelessness. Clinging to the last shred of fuel and hope, she arrives at the mansion of Texas billionaire Conrad Ayer. Although Maggie is clearly not what Mr. Ayer and his wife have in mind for a nanny, they agree to hire her temporarily until they can find someone more appropriate to fill the position. However, Maggie's whole world is about to be up-ended by two way-over-scheduled children and one incredibly handsome hired hand. As she struggles to fit into a world she was never made to fit in, Maggie wonders if she can ever learn to become a perfect version of herself so she can keep the job, or is she doomed to always be searching for a life she can never quite grasp?
Keith Ayer despises his life. As the son of Texas billionaire Conrad Ayer and the fiance to a Senator from Texas' daughter, it looks great on the outside, but inside, he is dying. He would vastly prefer to manage and train his father's racehorses. However, everyone else thinks that is beneath him. He needs to get into industry and build on his father's success. Suffocating under the constrictions of his life, he meets Maggie who begins to teach him that wealth and power is not everything in this life. But can Keith defy the most powerful men in Texas to follow his heart?

Beautifully written, clean, and refreshing love story. Even when I wasn't listening, I was thinking of the characters and could not wait to finish it.
Compared to the rich family she was working for, she had nothing. Not even a car that would make it out of town. For now, she would care for their children. Then she met the hired hand, or who was he? Life shattering events collidein this story of love.
I am an avid reader of Christian fiction, can't get enough. Love Karen Kingsbury, Irene Hannon, Staci Stallings, Sarah Sundin, Cathy Bryant
this was my third book by her and I really enjoyed every one of them. I plan on reading more for sure!
This narrators voice is not so great, too breezy for my taste. The writing felt like cotton candy...super sweet with no substance. When the female protagonist accidentally fell into the male protagonist it was commented that she weighed very little, it felt like a weightless butterfly. The rich people were almost all self centered and obnoxious. Children who have had horrible things happen to them are still very sweet and never do anything wrong. There were some good lessons, like realizing important and urgent aren't the same thing, but overall not a well written book or nice narration.
really enjoyed this book. I couldn't stop listening. a book about how God took all the bad things in two people's lives and eventually worked it all out for good though I sure wondered how He could work it all out. a good clean book. worth the money I spent for it.
