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

Petre d’Avernio is not exactly a nun, though she has spent years in an Italian convent with her mother. The death of her father 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 know she exists. The gorgeous earl Robin Fitzvitry 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 ... or will she?

    " I really liked the beginning of the book and the interaction between the hero and heroine. The problem came when the two separated. Then, it just lost its spark. "

    " I don't think I will ever tire of re-reading this book. the laughs from each misunderstanding, and the rescues...and the work of fate-all end up creating a nice ending. it could have been stronger-Rothgar punching Robin, or something, so that he could be rescued by the lady. "
