STORY-LINE THE SHIFTER’S NANNY BY T. S. RYDER

In The Shifter’s Nanny, we find Rose Doctor applying for a nanny position for the first time in five years.  After leaving an emotionally abusive relationship, Rose needs a job, and she has a degree in childcareArriving at Devon McGullicuddy’s for an interview, Rose finds the handsome panther shifter needs a nanny for his baby girl.  Neither of them is looking for a relationship or love.  However, fate has different ideas.

As their relationship builds, an old trauma in the form of a rabid stalker will appear on the scene to throw a monkey wrench into the works.  Come along with Rose and Devon as they fight their feelings, fight an evil stalker, and find a love which was worth waiting upon.  My shifter romance book reviews of The Shifter’s Nanny follows.

CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:

Firstly, let me say, how much I enjoyed this short, intense book.  Most shifter novels are full of explicit sex; I must commend T. S. Ryder for using prose rather than sex to sell this story.  Secondly, although a love scene does occur, it is tasteful and well-written without being offensive.

With twists and turns, Ryder kept my attention as she led me through Rose and Devon’s journey.   Setting a fast pace which remained smooth throughout, I became enmeshed in Ryder‘s shifter world.  With an original concept of humans and shifters living side by side, I found this refreshing as most novels have the shifters hidden from humans.
