Marrying the Nanny by Dani Collins

When infant Storm is orphaned, nanny Emma Wright, on a work visa and still reeling from a painful divorce, yearns to adopt her but must relinquish Storm to her three adult half-brothers. They remind her of a pack of wolves–protective, but not prepared to care for a baby. Alpha male Reid is especially aloof and intimidating.

Like his younger brothers, Reid Fraser left the Westcoast village of Raven’s Cove at eighteen and never looked back. Now a successful corporate consultant who rescues failing businesses—which is what this fly-in fishing resort has become, Reid must rally his brothers to save Storm’s inheritance, but he and his estranged brothers barely get along. They can’t deal with an infant, too. They need the nanny.

As Emma coaches Reid through midnight feedings and teething, they try to ignore the sexual pull between them. Then they learn Storm may have family who could take her from them. Reid proposes a marriage of convenience, but will it be enough to keep this fractured family together?

 What is the most difficult part of your artistic process?


It’s difficult to feel like I’m writing something fresh. It’s a balancing act because lots of readers really enjoy certain tropes, like babies. I love writing about babies!! So I guess it’s always trying to make each character feel like an actual individual. That’s always challenging but fun.

How long on average does it take you to write a book?


It really depends on the length and whether there is a lot of research involved. Also, if I’m fitting it in around other deadlines.


MARRYING THE NANNY took over five years from concept to hitting the final email that said it was ready to publish. Tons of life stuff got in the way. However, I typically write a Harlequin Presents in three months or less.


When I’m planning my projects, I generally schedule writing 2000 words per day, 5 days a week, but then I write on most weekends and often have a negative word count if I’m stuck and have to throw stuff away, lol.

Do you believe in writer's block?

I believe in stress and real life distractions and burn out.

If I’m in a healthy head space and the words aren’t coming within a story, that usually means I’ve taken a wrong turn somewhere, so I usually go back and look at how I’ve structured the book so far.


But I went through some loss and was deeply stressed and found that my writing slowed considerably so I wouldn’t say I was ‘blocked’ but that I was struggling on all fronts.

Three estranged half-brothers lose their father and have to return to their roots in Raven’s Cove, a fly-in fishing resort on BC’s central coast. The twist? They also have to take custody of their baby half-sister, Storm.


The eldest, Reid, is now a corporate consultant. He knows how to rescue Raven’s Cove from bankruptcy, but he doesn’t know anything about midnight feedings or teething. Emma came to Canada from NZ as a nanny, after her recent divorce. She adores Storm and wants to be her mom, but she can’t adopt her.


When outside threats make all of them realize they could lose custody of the baby, Reid asks Emma to marry him. They have chemistry, but she was determined that if she married again, it would only be for love. Is loving Storm enough?
