MY THREE SONSIs It In Wendy's TBR?: Not this one, although I have a couple of other categories by Mallery floating around in the TBR.
Rugged Craig Haynes came from a long line of lady-killers. Lately, though, the single dad was targeting only Jill Bradford, his sons' new nanny. Two parts sweetness, one part sin, the pint-size redhead proved a wizard with his three rambunctious boys. So what made this miracle-worker insist she was strictly hired help? Could a houseful of Haynes males ambush her wary heart...and maker her a mother and wife?
Any Reviews?: RT gave this 4.5 Stars:
As always, Ms. Mallery treats the reader to wonderful characters with a gift for snappy dialogue, splashes of humor and the ability to love and learn.There's also three customer reviews over at Amazon, ranging from 3 to 5 Stars.
Anything Else?: Another RRS entry that I picked out because of the cover. I'm a sucker for a pretty dress as much as the next girl, but this cover model looks particularly glass-eyed imagining her wedding day. Like a grown-woman playing dress-up. I wonder if she's thinking of riding to her nuptials on the back of a pink My Little Pony?
Then there's the back cover blurb. I'm a little disconcerted that the hero, a father of three, is described as a "lady killer." I get it, he's handsome. But now I'm imagining that creepy old guy who hangs out in college bars trying to pick up nubile young coeds.
Not that single guys (or gals) with kiddies running around the house aren't allowed to date and have a sex life....but lady killer implies bed-hopping lothario to me and....
Ahem, anywho. Mallery has a backlist that's about 10 miles long. I know she has a slew of fans out there. Hey, when you're an author with a backlist this size fans are a given. Harlequin appears to have digitized some of her backlist, including a couple titles in this series, but alas, not this one yet.
(And since I know someone is going to ask: If you don't "get" the references I made in the title of this post, here you go. What can I say? I watched a lot of Nick At Night as a kid. Oh, and if you don't know what a "wingman" is, here you go.)
