What was wrong with her?He kissed her A swift gentle caress that made her mind swirl in giddy abandonmentWithout thinking she lifted a hand and rested it against his chest just over his heart She planned to push him away but her mind betrayed her Instead her fingers curled around the soft cambric cloth of his shirt and she pulled him in closerThat's it that's the whole kiss That's the sum of kissing in the book except the part when view spoilershe kisses Tyler on the neck when he proposes Neck kissing is very serious I'm not being sarcastic I really mean that It feels so damn good hide spoiler A Doctor for the Nanny is by Leigh Bale It is a Lone Star Cowboy League novel Since it is an inspirational romance language sexual content and language are all clean It makes for a wholesome read and one you do not have to skip parts that make you uncomfortable It takes place in Texas Although she is loved and accepted on the Stillwater Ranch Eva Brooks still fills like an outsider She is just the cousin they took in when she had no other place to go She hadn’t found her calling yet; but knew it had nothing to do with cooking or waitressing She felt like a failure Having her fiancé leave her at the altar didn’t help at all Now her latest in food preparation had failed Where could she find her niche?
