Jordan Long has serious issues with the attractive young live-in nanny his aunt hired while he was away on business. He specifically requested a more experienced, matronly woman to take care of his two young daughters, and Kathleen Darrow is an unwanted sexy distraction. She has to go.
After three years working as a nurse, Kathleen was ready for a change, and she was thrilled to take the governess job at Long’s magnificent home near Delaware Bay. Soon after meeting little Annette and Marsha, she begins to hate the idea of being separated from them—and from their charismatic father with his powerful air of self-confidence and darkly handsome features.
But if two very resourceful little girls have their way, their passionate, auburn-haired caregiver will soon be assuming a more permanent position in the family household—and in the heart of their widowed dad.
With more than 300 million books sold, New York Times–bestselling author Janet Dailey is one of America’s premier romance fiction superstars—and she now continues her romantic tour of every state with this heartwarming tale of Delaware passion.

Read an Excerpt
When I first started writing back in the Seventies, my husband Bill and I were retired and traveling all over the States with our home--a 34' travel trailer--in tow. That's when Bill came up with the great idea of my writing a romance novel set in each one of our fifty states. It was an idea I ultimately accomplished before switching to mainstream fiction and hitting all the international bestseller lists.
As we were preparing to reissue these early titles, I initially planned to update them all--modernize them, so to speak, and bring them into the new high-tech age. Then I realized I couldn't do that successfully any more than I could take a dress from the Seventies and redesign it into one that would look as if it were made yesterday. That's when I saw that the true charm of these novels is their look back on another time and another age. Over the years, they have become historical novels, however recent the history. When you read them yourself, I know you will feel the same.
So, enjoy, and happy reading to all!
