Stevie Colvin is an unlikely heroine.
She has hopeless passions and a tendency to get herself into trouble. In the opinion of her long-suffering best friend Julia, she's a walking black spot who should be sectioned off with cones.
But when Stevie lands a job as a nanny to the children of Formula One racing driver Patrick Alexander and his wife Annabel, it's her chance to put her murky past behind her.
But that's reckoning without Patrick's junior team-mate, the gorgeous Italian sex god Rafe Dussi, who has set the pulses of Edenfield village racing even faster than he drives.
Only one member of Edenfield, arrogant landowner Charles Cusack, suspects the golden boy of motor racing may not be twenty-four carat.
