Publisher's Summary

Ian Grant isn’t a man who accepts help easily. After promising his young son that he could participate in the strawberry festival and then missing the admittance deadline, Ian’s in a bind and forced to ask the mayor for a favor. 

The mayor agrees, on one condition: His niece has run into hard times and needs a safe place to stay - Ian’s place. She’s great with kids, and Ian needs someone to look after his rambunctious son Andy while he ranches. Ian agrees, expecting some college-aged girl who’d flunked algebra. Instead, he finds a full-grown woman - a beautiful and sassy one to boot. 

Katie Rylie has always dreamed of helping others by teaching them to cook. Her online persona was thriving, until a scandal with her forthcoming cookbook rocked her career. Not only did she have to pay back the entire advance, but her once-loyal fan base has turned against her. 

Defeated and with nowhere to go, Katie feels it’s better to hide out in the country until she can get her life back together. The offer of a free home, an open range, and a wily six-year-old to focus on sounds like just the escape she needs.

When Andy’s diet restrictions force Katie to become creative in the kitchen, she finds herself drawn back into the food world, just as she’s falling in love with Ian and Andy. But Ian, who likes having control of everything, doesn’t know how to ask Katie to become a permanent part of their lives.

If their love is ever going to work, Ian and Katie will need to learn that having it all doesn’t mean giving anything up.

Please note: This novel contains sexual content and profanity.

Cute & Romantic

The Cowboy's Surprise Nanny is a well-written romance about a widowed cowboy who is grappling with being a single father. The plot flows smoothly, and the storyline is fun and entertaining; it captured my attention. The characters, Ian and Katie, are delightful, relatable, and well-developed. Unique circumstances brought them together to live under the same roof.

The return on a favor from the Mayor results in Ian hiring Katie, the Mayor's niece, as his son's nanny. Despite Ian's reservations, Katie is ideal for the job. It doesn't take long for them to grow an intense attraction for each other and form a passionate bond.

Excellent narration by Mathias Strongbow, he brought the characters to life. I enjoyed Ian and Katie's journey, they had a great dynamic and chemistry. Overall, this was a fabulous listen, one I recommend. I was given a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.

Love is a family affair.

Children tend to change the dynamic of a story. Whether real or fiction, a child's innocence, can bring out the best or worse in people. North understood the complications and was determined to take the risk. The Cowboy's Surprise Nanny is a romance that becomes a family affair. Ian and Katie prove that true love is neverending and always growing.

Sweet Cowboy Story

The Cowboy's Surprise Nanny is the first book in the Grant Brothers Series, a contemporary romance. Ian and Katie's story is sweet, romantic and sexy. Katie is smart and beautiful. Grant, a widower single Dad, is handsome, caring, and protective. I liked to follow them in their story. Andy, Grant's son, is a good and sweet kid. The supporting characters are great and intriguing. Looking forward to listen to the next installment, The Cowboy’s Contract Marriage, Jonah's story. Mathias Strongbow is a new narrator to me. He did a good job with the narration.

You can't go wrong with food and cowboys!

Leslie North has a new trilogy out and this first book in the Grant Brothers just leaves you wanting more! Ian Grant is the first brother we meet and he is a force to be reckoned with. He finds himself in a situation, and to get himself out has to give the mayor’s niece, Katie, a safe place to be. His son takes to her immediately because the two share a love for cooking, and with her help he can enter a competition. But there is more to Katie than just cooking, and Ian is suspicious. Will she bring more trouble to his family than she is worth? Will his attraction to her get in the way? And can I get some of the recipes they make? Ian is the protective dad I love. He has a dominant personality and Katie has her hands full! Katie is a blast. I love her honesty as well as her love of knowing her dreams. She is strong and will do anything for those she cares about. This is what I love about Leslie North. She creates characters that feel real, and are people we could know ourselves. It makes the listen so fun and easy to relate to.

Mathias Strongbox brings the twang to this listen. He has a great voice and is a wonderful storyteller. I found he honed in on each character and gave them each distinctive voice and personalities. He was enjoyable to hear.

Stoic Widower Single Father, Apprising Chef Becomes Nanny

Ian’s high school sweetheart died and left him with a small son and he became isolated. His son Andy has many food allergies and has also become isolated.
Katie won a cooking show and was trying hard to fit into please everyone which resulted in the opposite. Lively she becomes a nanny for Andy and indispensable (against his will) to Ian.
I’d have liked to hit Ian in the head a couple times with his gruffness but he is a good man and has only to open up, which he does.
The narrator has a very deep sexy voice and provides excellent emotion and storytelling ability A short and romantic, sweet romance with the best little boy!
I received a free audiobook for an honest and voluntary review.
