For more than two years, Rose has been the nanny for James Harwood's daughters. She adores the girls, but she tries to maintain a professional distance with James-no matter how attractive she finds him. However, when his engagement falls apart and he starts to look at her differently, Rose no longer sees him only as her boss.

James isn't the kind of man to fall for

Overview

For more than two years, Rose has been the nanny for James Harwood's daughters. She adores the girls, but she tries to maintain a professional distance with James-no matter how attractive she finds him. However, when his engagement falls apart and he starts to look at her differently, Rose no longer sees him only as her boss.

James isn't the kind of man to fall for his nanny, so he doesn't know why he can't stop thinking about her in very wrong ways. He's determined to resist, to keep his life simple and to find an appropriate substitute for his wife who died.

But with a manipulative ex-fiancée, two precocious daughters, Rose's interfering Southern grandmother, a short-lived fake engagement, and feelings that won't be denied, nothing remains simple for long.

I liked book 1 and 3 better, this one was ok but all the while reading it my mind kept going to a famous star who nanny had a baby for him. That just me and because that star was on my mind I guess I could not really get into this story.

I am a big Noelle Adams fan, so whenever she has a new book available, I add it to my TBR list. Her stories always keep me happy, entertained and interested. Substitute Bride is a welcome addition to her Beaufort Brides series and I enjoyed it very much. I love stories about weddings and Ms. Adams always tackles the subject with lots of creativity. A kind and loving nanny can most certainly help a family that lacks maternal support. In this story, Rose Beaufort is the nanny to two very cute little girls, and she has created an environment filled with warmth and affection. For two years she has worked for James Harwood, a wealthy widower, and truly loves her job. Most recently, Rose and James shared a dance, and all at once they begin to see each other in a romantic way. As a result, James breaks it off with his bitchy fiancee and begins to see a life with Rose as a wife and mother. Rose has been hurt before and is skeptical about finding love, plus her job is very important and she loves the girls with all her heart. She does not want to ruin what she has if a relationship with James does not work out. Ms. Adams nicely combines joy, heat, and drama into this romantic novella. I immediately connected with Rose and James, and there was never a moment that I did not want them to be together. James' girls added a cuteness factor that kept me smiling from ear to ear. Overall, a solid read. Complimentary copy provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.

This is a sweet and sexy romance with a fairly predictable plot, as Rose realizes that she's starting to see her employer James as more than just her boss, and vice versa. I liked how the story starts, with Rose having been a nanny for the two young girls for two years, and is a part of the family though she still maintains a professional distance - until a spark of chemistry occurs between her and James to liven things up and make them both realize that perhaps what they are looking for has been right in front of them all the time. Though stories with children aren't my favourite, these two girls were really cute and their characters came across as true for their ages. Their father James is a handsome and successful businessman just trying to do right by them, and it's clear that he cares for them very much. It's a slow build romance that leads to some steamy scenes between Rose and James and a sweet happy ending. Very enjoyable. 4 stars.

Substitute Bride is the second book Noelle Adams Beaufort Brides series. I have read many of Noelle Adams’ books and I have to say this is my favorite so far. From the moment I started the book I was pulled into Rose and James story. Ms. Adams knows how to bring the emotion out in her characters. I loved how Rose interacted with James’ little girls from the outset. I liked the fact that she dealt with Genevieve in an expeditious manner and didn’t allow her to harm his daughters. This is one of those stories that grabs you and drags you in and before you know it you can’t put it down until you read the happily ever after. I thoroughly enjoyed Substitute Bride and I highly recommend it.

My Thoughts: Another sweetie of a story from Noelle Adams! In this continuation of the Beaufort Brides series, the story centers on Rose. She's a nanny for two adorable girls, Jill and Julie, who are the daughters of James. After his fiancee proves herself to be less than likable, the engagement is off. He and Rose talk, and he finds himself seeing Rose in a new light. Given the circumstances, he can't give in to that temptation no matter how strong the pull is. But since his former fiancee doesn't seem to get the picture about their engagement being over, James and Rose pretend to be engaged. It doesn't take long for them to realize how much they want something fake to actually be real. Substitute Bride is quite charming! I loved watching the romance unfold between James and Rose. It was sensual and sweet at the same time. And his daughters are absolutely the cutest--I wish I could just hug them both for real. It was also great to see and hear about characters from the first book again. Noelle Adams does it again as usual. Can't wait for the next story in the series! My Rating Very Good
