Candy Kisses - Verna Clay
After a bull riding competition accident, widower Dirk Branigan is flat on his back with a busted leg. In dire need of a nanny for his ten year old daughter Tessa, as well as someone to cook and clean, he accepts a referral from friends and hires a woman sight, unseen. After meeting his "domestic help," he decides his friends are going to owe him big time. The woman is spoiled, temperamental, frustrating, and yes, occasionally, endearing. Thankfully, Tessa takes to her immediately. As for Dirk, uncovering the woman behind the facade will take patience, coaxing, and a lot of love.
