Rachel Harris Excerpt: The Nanny Arrangement

The Nanny Arrangement by Rachel Harris

Soft-spoken and shy Hannah Fisher is determined to make the man she’s loved her entire life finally see her as a woman. With the help of a makeover, a new mission—Operation Find My Happy—and the convenient forced proximity of a tour bus, she vows to win her best friend Deacon’s heart.

Former bad boy and current fiddle player Deacon Latrell has the world at his fingertips: a new gig with a famous band, plus his best friend on tour as his son’s nanny. Life couldn’t get much sweeter. Now if only he could stop imagining kissing the daylights out of his childhood BFF…

With one friend set on pushing the boundaries and the other afraid to rock the boat, one thing’s for certain—their story would make one heck of a country song.

Good Lord. Cherry was trying to kill him.

Right there, in his best friend’s childhood bedroom, Deacon was having a heart attack. Gripping his chest, he swallowed thickly and tried to force his gaze away from the scrap of silk and lace held high between Hannah’s fingers—but his eyes refused to budge.

Visuals fired in his mind, enticing images that he had zero business picturing. Visions of Hannah sauntering toward him, her sea-green eyes filled with heat as her long red hair bounced around her creamy shoulders. Her slender body draped in that wisp of high-cut silk. Lace playing peek-a-boo with what lay underneath.

Biting back a curse, Deacon pinched the bridge of his nose. When the bite of pain didn’t stop the blood rushing south, he started reciting last year’s Tar Heels statistics, figuring cold, hard facts would knock some sense into him, but even the glow of last year’s championship win didn’t stem the tide.

He was going to hell.

“As a matter of fact, I am.”

Deacon blinked, wondering if he’d spoken his thoughts aloud. “You’re what?”

“Bringing this on the road,” she clarified, brandishing the nightie with a huff. “In fact, I’m bringing them all.” She motioned toward the bed where, indeed, a plethora of options were piled high in an open suitcase, available in a rainbow of colors, too. Awesome.

“They make me feel sexy,” Hannah went on, shocking him even more. “And…and I’m a woman, so I should feel that way. Cosmo says feeling sexy leads to acting sexy, which makes men think about sex.”

At that, Deacon’s eyes snapped back to hers, and he watched as the pale skin of Cherry’s throat turned pink. The familiar sight of her sweet and innocent blush—the reason, along with her red hair, that he’d christened her with the nickname years ago—reminded him that it was, in fact, his best friend talking. But the words coming out of her mouth didn’t compute.

Hannah bit her thumbnail and rocked back on her heels. “Does um…does it make you think about sex?”

Deacon nearly choked on his spit. No way in hell was he answering that one.
