URGENTLY WANTED: a nanny for Christmas. Seeking an adventurous nanny to work for the aristocratic Lord family at their country estate. Must love naughty dogs, mischievous children and have a high tolerance for Christmas chaos. Room and board provided.

Penny Windlesham is stunned when her long-term boyfriend suddenly dumps her, leaving her with a broken heart just in time for Christmas. At a loose end, she accepts a job as a short-term nanny to a family she’s never met. Climbing aboard a train bound for the Dorset countryside, a tear rolls down her cheek. Alone, working and amongst strangers… could her Christmas be any less magical?

As she crunches up the family’s frost-covered drive, Penny’s spirits lift when she glimpses her home for the next month: an enormous manor house, its windows glowing with firelight and festooned with twinkling holly. And, as she settles into her role caring for the adorable Lord children, she finds herself surrounded by a quirky cast of characters, including loveably frazzled Spanish chef Pilar and the children’s grouchy uncle, Lando Lord.

Despite Penny’s attempts to avoid him, the darkly handsome Lando seems to be everywhere – hanging around like Scrooge amidst the happy present-wrapping and gingerbread baking. Apparently he wasn’t always this way… is there some secret reason he’s so cranky at Christmas?

When Lando is commissioned to carve a beautiful new Nativity scene for the local church, Penny blushingly agrees to be his model, and a sudden spark flickers between them. But it’s not long before the past comes knocking, and Penny discovers exactly why Lando left his old life behind…

My Thoughts

This story is about family dynamics, with charming twins, a struggling Bunny, a love-struck Grandfather, William, a mischievous Uncle Xander, and a powerhouse cook named Pilar. Despite their past, Penny and Lando are open to new love, making for a delightful, mature, slow-burn romance with plenty of quaint holiday fun. It’s a perfect read for the Christmas season!

About Hannah Langdon

Thank you so much for visiting my author page – and welcome!

I live in London but visit the lovely county of Dorset regularly and hanker after those beautiful views and chocolate box homes. I find it all too easy to imagine myself living a peaceful country life, pottering about a cottage garden in between writing bestsellers and taste testing cream teas around the county. However, I know that I’m not ready to leave London, so I content myself with sending my characters off to rural idylls in my place, and thoroughly enjoy myself through them.

I live with my husband and our young daughter and work in a lovely little school as Nursery Teacher and Assistant Head. People wonder how I have time to write; so do I, sometimes, but it brings me so much joy that I can’t imagine a life without it. Even those little pockets of writing time give me the opportunity to escape the city and wander round a stunning manor house meeting lovable, eccentric characters and making sure my heroine finds her happy ending. Sometimes I’m quite surprised to look up from my laptop and find myself in my own house!

Although I have been writing romantic fiction for over twenty years, I am in the early stages of being published. I’m so excited to share my books with readers and I do hope that you enjoy them. Please come back for more; I’m going to keep spilling out stories and I’d love to have people to share them with!
