OK, so she 's never eally a nun, but HE does n't say hat for sure until quite a bit further in thi bestsellin.

" Th Lady 's Secret " is a wonderful reunion with Jo Beverley 's Malloren family, one of my cherished keeper series.

It as my own stupidity that had th book sitting in my TBR pile ( which should more correctly be called 'the Alps' vice 'pile') as even after reading the back cover blurb, I did n't connect it with the Malloren family.

He 's only the fun-loving and adventurous man from earlier books, but with his uncl 's death he knows it 's eve a matter of time before he 's compelle to face the responsibilities and accompanying boredom of life as The Earl.

Disguised as a nun, she 's wanting to reach the father she 's never met, and who want nothing of her, in England.

I icked this as my next Jo Beverley experiment because while it 's middle of the Malloren saga, it 's start of the " Georgian Secrets " triplet.

Previously, the Malloren 's played a major role in th nove o now I know the backstories.The high rating in this case was because I fell in love with both main characters, almost from the start.

After reading a few of Beverley ’ s Company of Rogue ’ s books last month I wen to start this latest trilog in the Malloreen series.

I did like that it tarted in a French setting and with a Italian heroine, then it oes on as an entertaining road romance, it has a bit of adventure and mystery and it has the main characters falling in love.

Both the heroine, Petra, and hero, Robin, were clever and well-written characters.

Where some of the villains in his series are cool, calm and collected, and ofte downright grim and grumpy at times ( ahem, Fort ...), Robin was a harming change.

Petra was also quite adventurous, and an interesting haracter.

So of course I knew she had something to complai about, but it was actuall fun, and an I ay, cute, to read how he handled it.

She was raised as the granddaughter of an Italian count, but learned late in the game that she is not he product of a peccadillo between her grandmother and a titled Englishman touring the continent as young men did in those year.

It goe out that Petra is being pursued by the inions of a dastardly Italian count ( no, not her stepdaddy), who betrayed her but has no intention of marrying her as she anticipate.

So she 's racing to England to seek the protection of her real daddy.

Anothe story actually ties in with a standard setting for Regency Romance… A solid four stars, just for that.
