     The proposal is fake, but the feelings are real. 
    June Green is heartbroken when her boyfriend gets engaged to another woman mere weeks after their breakup. She says a little too much to the dad of the two adorable children she nannies, and he decides to help her save face... by faking a proposal in front of her ex. She's always been quite fond of Roland, and can't pretend he's not attractive, but pretending to date your employer seems like a risky plan.
    Successful businessman and young widower Roland Kirk should know better than to get mixed up with his children's (inconveniently attractive) nanny. But when June's cruel ex starts baiting her right in front of him, he can't help himself—he not only claims he and June are an item, but stages a full romantic proposal. June goes along with it, and he's sure it's only to get back at the guy, but when their faked moment leads to a very real date and an unexpected, spine-tingling kiss, things get even more complicated.
    With the risk of messing up his kids' one good relationship, the stakes are high. But neither one of them can ignore the intensity of their attraction...

Only now does she realise she’s in love with Barry Dunbar, only to learn that on his oriental travels, he has become a Buddhist monk. Has she discovered the love of her life just days too late?
