The Playboy Prince and the Nanny is a sweet romance that almost has a fairy tale feel to it. I would definitely call this an “escape novel”. The writing, the location, and romance all allow the reader to step away from their real life for a short period of time.
Prince Diego is always making the headlines and stealing the spotlight for his family. He has been labeled as a playboy but underneath that facade is a man who will do anything for his family. This is shown to be true when his sister-in-law and the family nanny is killed in a car accident and he rushes home to be with the family. Once there, he helps hire the new nanny for his niece and nephew, a young woman named Rose.
Rose has worked for a nanny agency for several years and enjoys teaching and taking care of children. She has a light energy about her and starts bringing laughter and joy back to the children and their family. She also finds herself attracted to their uncle. She learns that Prince Diego is not the man in the headlines but, she is conflicted on if they can make an actual relationship work with her employment status and his status as a royal. There is some sneaking around in The Playboy Prince and the Nanny which bring some sweet scenes to the fold.
As I said, this is what I would call an “escape novel”. The reader is taken to a different location with sweet romance, heart-felt characters, and a little bit scandal to keep you guessing. There is a second book in this series called The Crown Prince’s Bride. It follows Diego’s brother Raoul, and I’m hoping that Rose and Diego make a few appearances as well.
