Lee creates irresistible heroines, and Vivienne Stansfield is no exception. An heiress and the pampered darling of El Paso society, Vivi is planning her Christmas wedding to lawyer Grady. She's also hunting for the perfect newlywed nest with handsome real-estate magnate Max.

Vivi does her best to ignore her attraction to Max, until her bank account is emptied, her car is repossessed and she finds her fiancé kissing another woman. The moment she loses everything, she remembers Max needs a nanny for his younger sisters—and she needs a job.

There are few things in fiction more satisfying than watching a skilled author pull off a convincing transformation. As Vivi faces each new challenge, including Max and their incredible chemistry together, her story becomes increasingly compelling. (Oct., 368 pp., $6.99)
