Tandis que tous les hommes du clan Fortune se prêtent à des tests ADN pour que le père du bébé retrouvé soit identifié, Logan Fortune se trouve brusquement confronté à un défi de plus : élever la petite Amanda, sa fille, dont il vient juste d'apprendre l'existence à la suite du décès de la maman. Mais comment s'y prendre avec un bébé de vingt mois quand on est avant tout, comme lui, un homme d'affaires et un homme à femmes ? En attendant de trouver la nounou idéale, Logan ne voit qu'une solution : faire appel à sa fidèle assistante, la très sérieuse et très réservée Emily, qui ne sait rien lui refuser. Il l'installe donc chez lui, certain d'avoir résolu son problème. Mais, au fil des jours, les choses se compliquent de manière inattendue pour Logan. Car, alors qu'il la voit s'occuper avec douceur d'Amanda et gagner l'affection de l'enfant, il découvre sous les airs stricts de sa secrétaire une femme sensuelle, presque mystérieuse qu'il se surprend à désirer...

But the confirmed bachelor's plan to become the perfect dad needed the help of the only woman the corporate cowboy depended upon. His ever-loyal assistant, Emily Applegate, would surely care for his child without romanticizing the situation. After all, the prim and proper Emily had never elicited passionate feelings in her boss before. And yet, as the shy secretary blossomed in her role as temporary mother, Logan began to feel the pull of attraction- and the need to make Emily his . . . in every way.

Logan Fortune is all business, although he's indulged in his share of pleasure, a fact made abundantly clear when he meets the new lady in his life: his toddler daughter.
Admittedly out of his league, he turns to Emily Applegate, his no-nonsense assistant, perhaps the only woman in Texas who can resist his charms. Deep down, Emily's crazy about her boss, but playboy moguls are definitely out of her league. Tasked with hiring a nanny, she soon discovers none of the candidates is good enough for the little girl she's coming to adore.
With her hair down, her glasses off and smiles aplenty for his daughter, Emily is suddenly so desirable to Logan, leaving him feeling a little unsteady. Now he's got to pull off the biggest merger of his life, convincing a woman with no illusions that his heart–and his daughter–belong to her.
