Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Highly recommended

The first of an all new miniseries, The Tycoon's Instant Daughter by Christine Rimmer provides a heart touching, secret revealing tale of the Stockwells of Texas.

An extremely well appointed nursery and unlimited funds is not enough to convince social worker Hannah Miller that three-month-old Becky should be left with her biological father. Cord's new nanny calls the morning of Hannah's arrival stating shouldn't accept the job after all, leaving Cord Stockwell without the appropriate child care for round-the clock attention for the baby.

Hannah has grown inordinately fond of her charge, even to the extent of taking vacation time to foster the little girl. Leaving Becky with a playboy father that didn't even know of the child's existence until the call came from Social Services just doesn't suit Hannah. So it's little wonder she finds herself agreeing to nanny the child until another caregiver can be found. Now not only must Hannah find a way to protect her heart from breaking when she leaves the child, but also when she leaves the child's sexy father.

Hannah isn't Cord's kind of woman at all. She's too bossy, and she wants things done her way. Strange how he suddenly doesn't want her to leave. She is, after all, an exasperating female, but a worthy adversary as well. Suddenly Cord finds himself fantasizing about her simple cotton gown and bare toes, instead of seeking the company of sexy Texan aristocrats.

Add to the mix of Hannah, Cord and baby the rest of the Stockwell family, including a dying patriarch with a passel of secrets, a mother said to have died while boating with an uncle, and brothers and a sister with their own secrets and the result is a promising miniseries of Texan proportions. With a healthy dose of feistiness, Rimmer creates the perfect read to hook the attention and leaves the reader anxious for the next installment. Highly recommended.

    Cord Stockwell is a Father?

    Ms Rimmer writes the lead story in this miniseries -THE STOCKWELLS OF TEXAS. Bigger than life characters and Ms Rimmer has created the whole family for us! Eldest son Cord Stockwell finds he has a daughter by one of his many affairs and the social worker for the baby ends up having to be the nanny, Hannah Miller, in the Stockwell mansion. Cord, the rich Texan, and Hannah, the 'Okie', find love but have many obstacles to overcome to finally reach the point of letting the other know. I thought it was one of Ms Rimmer's best books. I highly recommend it! I'm looking forward to reading the rest in the miniseries.
