A LADY'S SECRET
Extraordinary storyteller Beverley mixes witty repartee, danger and simmering sensuality with her strong and engaging characters, including a fetching Papillon, in this delightful, delicious gem of a book.
Robin Fitzvitry, the Earl of Huntersdown, is cured of his boredom when he catches sight of a cursing nun in the courtyard of a French inn. Posing as Sister Immaculata, Petra d'Averio needs a companion to accompany her to England, and Robin offers his services.
She soon discovers that Robin is also not what he seems to be. On the journey, they succumb to the tingling desire that runs between them. When Robin is wounded protecting her, Petra realizes that she'll have to leave him to keep him safe. She disappears, and Robin does everything in his power to find her. Will their discovered love for one another against a most formidable obstacle keep them apart? (SIGNET, Apr., 432 pp., $7.99)
