Dennis Murphy’s rambunctious seven-year-old twins swear he’s the best lawyer in Arlington, Connecticut. They don’t make his job easy, however. When the nanny he hires to watch the twins walks out on them one afternoon while Dennis is meeting with Gail Saunders, the opposing attorney in a libel case, Dennis is forced to bring his work home with him.
Gail’s client is a Russian immigrant who’s had a few scrapes with the law in the past. She agrees to represent him, even if it means going up against Murphy and his prestigious, wealthy law firm, and even if it means she has to deal with his wild children once their nanny goes AWOL. Gail isn’t the sort to become all warm and fuzzy around children—especially imps like Sean and Erin Murphy. She’s missing the maternal gene, and the romantic gene as well. Just because Murphy is smart and funny and sexy as hell doesn’t mean she’s going to fall for him. She knows his seductive charms are merely tactics in his effort to win the libel suit.
Being the sister of one of the founders of the Daddy School, Gail believes Murphy could use a few lessons in how to be a better father. But she’s got a few things to learn, too, and Dennis Murphy might just be the man to teach her.
