Award-winning and USA Today Bestselling author Dani Collins thrives on giving readers emotional, compelling, heart-soaring romance with laughter and heat thrown in, just like real life.

Do you have unpublished or half-written manuscripts?


I do! Not many. I’ve self-published a lot of books that otherwise haven’t found a home, but I have at least one Harlequin Presents that got side-tracked at one point and I haven’t gone back to it. I also have a two rom coms that need homes. They both need some rewriting before I can put them out into the world and my time has been tight lately. I’ll get there!




What kind of research do you do and for how long before you write a book?


It really depends. If it’s historical, I do a lot more, but I prefer to do most of it while I go. For Marrying the Nanny, I wanted to physically be there, which helped a lot with the actual setting. With a historical, I often stop what I’m writing and look things up as needed – eg. when were can openers invented?


If it’s a Harlequin Presents, I regularly google things like ‘red carpet gowns’ and ‘engagement rings’ and ‘super yacht’ as I’m writing.




Tell us about your book...


Marrying the Nanny is the first in my new Raven’s Cove trilogy, available Mar 5.


The working title was Three Men and a Baby on an Island and that about sums it up. Three half-brothers have to go back to the fly-in fishing resort after their dad passes, leaving them with custody of their infant half-sister. Emma is the nanny and the eldest brother, Reid, suggests they marry so that Emma can finally become a mom.


If you love small towns, nature, gruff men with babies and families knitting themselves back together, you’ll love this one!

When infant Storm is orphaned, nanny Emma Wright, on a work visa and still reeling from a painful divorce, yearns to adopt her but must relinquish Storm to her three adult half-brothers. They remind her of a pack of wolves–protective, but not prepared to care for a baby. Alpha male Reid is especially aloof and intimidating.

Like his younger brothers, Reid Fraser left the Westcoast village of Raven’s Cove at eighteen and never looked back. Now a successful corporate consultant who rescues failing businesses—which is what this fly-in fishing resort has become, Reid must rally his brothers to save Storm’s inheritance, but he and his estranged brothers barely get along. They can’t deal with an infant, too. They need the nanny.

As Emma coaches Reid through midnight feedings and teething, they try to ignore the sexual pull between them. Then they learn Storm may have family who could take her from them. Reid proposes a marriage of convenience, but will it be enough to keep this fractured family together?
