Meg Lacy came to Sydney to chase her dream, but the dream is somewhat elusive, so she finds herself unemployed, uninspired and on the verge of giving up. A chance encounter with wealthy single father Bryce Carlton gives her a temporary reprieve: a job as a nanny to his headstrong eight-year-old daughter.
The arrangement is supposed to be short-term, an easy way for her to save money while she pursues her dream. But her heart doesn't understand, and before long she is growing attached to her charge and falling in love with a man determined not to risk his heart a second time.
When his first marriage ended Bryce vowed to never become seriously involved with another woman, but Meg turns his house, his life and his heart upside down.
She is his daughter's nanny, he's not the right man for her, and there are a million reasons why their relationship shouldn't be. Everything was going according to plan...until he meets Meg.

Elise Reid wasted years on a bad relationship, dreaming when she could have been doing. Now she's making up for lost time – taking all of her savings and heading straight for Paris and the Cordon d'Or cooking school, the first step in her café dreams.
No dream is without its roadblocks, and Elise's come in the form of a dark, delicious, decidedly rude Frenchman who works in the café below her studio apartment. Forced to tutor Paul in exchange for reduced rent, Elise finds herself laughing, teasing and sharing her dreams.

There are 14 000 kilometres between Australia and Paris, but that may be nothing compared to the emotional distance two people have to cross...losing their baggage along the way.
