When Vivienne's father disappears with all their money, she turns to Maxwell for help, and against his better judgment, he gives her a job as nanny to his two youngest sisters. Despite being engaged, Vivienne finds herself drawn to him, and he to her. Anxious to prove that she is not a pampered princess, she soon has his house running like clockwork and is working to earn the trust of his sisters. When her engagement is terminated, little stands in the way of a relationship with Max except for old myths and disappointments. Getting past these, as well as the return of both of her absent, divorced parents, and the discovery that Max has a secret box of news clippings about her, is difficult, but they finally make it. Initially it seems as though Lee should have continued writing elegant Victorian historicals, but what at first seems forced turns into a wonderful story of two lonely people meant for each other.

From the Inside Flap
He may turn out to be the best gift she has ever received. . . SHE WAS READY TO TIE THE KNOT.
NOW SHE'S FIT TO BE TIED.
Texas heiress Vivienne Stansfield's dream of being a bride was about to come true. But in a startling change of fortune, her safe, reliable fiance proves himself to be neither-and her wealthy, eccentric father disappears, leaving her with no money, no explanation, and no choice but to find a job. Determined to prove that she isn't the pampered princess the tabloids say she is, she seeks the position of nanny for sexy real estate mogul Max Landry's young sisters. With to-die-for clothes and a heart as pure as her gold charm bracelet, Vivi steps up to the challenge. But how to resist her irresistible employer?
Max needs a nanny. But the last person he wants is a knockout who doesn't know the first thing about taking care of herself, much less two young girls. But once she arrives, he learns that there is more to Vivi than her short skirts and high heels imply. And when she asks Max to teach her about the game of life and passion, this strong-willed man realizes that he wants to play for real, for keeps-and he has no intention of losing this woman's surprisingly fragile heart.

Desperate for someone to care for his two siblings he gives her a chance. As they fight she begins to provide a positive influence on his two wards and his other adult siblings. She feels good that he seems to care about Vivienne and not the media darling princess. Soon Max and Vivienne fall in love, but her faith in Max is shattered when she learns he has kept a scrapbook centered on her since they met twenty years ago as children from different sides of the tracks.
THE WEDDING DIARIES is a fine contemporary romance starring two likable lead characters, a host of congenial secondary players (his siblings), and two disagreeable parents. The story line is fun as readers enjoy watching the "Pampered Princess" struggling yet persevering against all odds. Though key issues and problems resolve too easily, Linda Francis Lee provides a delightful tale that sub-genre readers will enjoy.
Happy Reading Lisa
Vivienne gets a job with Max Landry taking care of his 2 sisters - including the teenager from hell (dressed in black).
We know that Vivienne and Max will fall in love but it won't be easy and that makes for a fun read.
Linda Francis Lee has an amazing writing style, she definitely knows how to grab the readers attention and keeps you interested throughout the entire story. I even found myself reading the book while stirring dinner on the stove, as I didn't want to put the book down. Luckily nothing got burnt :)
And the ending of the book is absolutely wonderful. A perfect story for all you romantics.
Max and Vivi are wonderful well writing characters. You will pull for them and cry with them. I will be looking for more books from this author.
