A Lady’s Secret by Jo Beverly (2008)

Description: When Robin Fitzvitry, the fun-loving Earl of Huntersdown, encounters a cursing nun in a French inn, he can’t resist the mystery. Expecting only amusement on the tedious journey home from Versailles, he offers to help Sister Immaculata reach England.

Petra d’Averio is not exactly a nun, though she has spent years in an Italian convent with her widowed mother. Her mother’s death has left her in danger, and she must find the only person who might protect her: her true father, an English lord who does not even know she exists.

This gorgeous young aristocrat will be a dangerous ally, but she’s glimpsed her pursuers and must race to the coast. She will resist him, use him, and eventually escape him with her virtue and secrets intact… she hops.

Review: This amusing tale is non-stop action from beginning to end. Add in a dash of great historical references and it proves to be a most interesting novel. I had fun reading it and would definitely recommend it to others and read it again.

Score: 4 out of 5
