Prohibition Era, Chicago

Caught in a raid at an illegal speakeasy, good girl Erin O'Mara loses everything: her job, her home, and her reputation. Handsome and so out of her league attorney Seth Harrison, her best friend's brother, rescues her not once, but twice. He bails her out of jail and offers her a job as nanny for his son.

Seth has no intention of falling in love after the death of his wife. But despite his better judgment, he can't help being drawn to Erin's innocence.This Christmas, letting go of the past and embracing the future may be the greatest present of all.

Previously publishing in A Very Scandalous Christmas Anthology
This is a very sweet historical romance.  The characters were very captivating and Seth's son is absolutely adorable.  The 1920's is sadly neglected (or I just can't find them) in historical romance and it is such an interesting era.  We get to see quite a few different sides of this period, from a speak-easy, to a shop girl, to a wealthy family home.  The time period was really brought to life.

Erin is such an innocent girl - a little too much maybe.  But I still loved her for it.  Seth falls for her from the moment he sees her in jail.  But he never imagines that she will end up working for him as a nanny.  Having her under his roof is such temptation, and he falls even more for her.  It was very well written and I was so happy when they got their HEA.
