Can their love survive her secret?
Hannah Rhodes is determined to keep her beachfront property, even though she can’t afford to. But it’s her childhood home and she can’t bear to see it plowed down by the billionaire investor who keeps raising his offer to buy it. When the same man hires her to be his daughter’s nanny—providing her the income she needs to reject his offer—the irony is not lost on her. However, seeing him as a loving, worried father makes it difficult to enjoy her secret revenge.
For Carter Ellis, building his own resort was a massive risk, but worth it to build a new life for his daughter away from his controlling mother. Everything is going to plan except that the owner of the tumbled-down home blocking his resort view and threatening its success refuses to sell. If only his new nanny would stop distracting him, he just might be able to figure out how to solve this problem. Not only is she beautiful and vibrant, she’s helping his daughter bloom. Just when he begins to give in to his feelings, he discovers who she really is.
When their trust is shaken, will Carter and Hannah sacrifice what they wanted most for a chance at something more?

Sure, it is a little formulaic. The billionaire and the nanny to his daughter. But who said formula is wrong?
The Trust of a Billionaire is a surprisingly touching story of a young man who had been used by the woman he had married and then dumped. Moreover, it is the story of a young woman, desperately clinging to the house that represents a happy childhood with her parents who are now dead. And it is the story of a young girl who has never known the love of a mother and a grandmother who has never allowed her to be a child.
This book is well-written and enjoyable with a romance that is sweet and believable. And it even has a meddling mother who is convinced that she knows what is good for her son more than he does.
