It would be easy to envy Julia Davies. After all, she's smart, pretty and oh-so sexy. Kids love her. Dogs love her. Men certainly love her. But she isn't perfect. She's impulsive and stubborn and sometimes lacking in good judgment in the boyfriend department. In fact, it is the need to flee an abusive relationship that is the catalyst for her taking a job as a nanny to Alex Sutherland's kids in faraway Halifax.
Alex Sutherland comes with baggage of his own. The death of his gorgeous wife has taken a toll on his two little boys, leaving them fragile and needy. Alex is over-worked and desperate to find the perfect nanny for his kids. What he doesn't need at this point in his life is a romantic entanglement.
Take these two strong but wounded people, add cute kids, angry in-laws and a threat from the past and you've got a recipe for laughter, danger and love.
