Another “hysterical historical” from one of my favorite authors. Poor Annabel is packed up at the tender age of 7 and sent to live in a convent. Now 14 years later she is still a novice and has yet to take the veil. She isn't a very good nun. (Think Maria from The Sound of Music). All that is changed when her elder sister runs away with the stable masters son leaving her parents in a lurch. They had promised their eldest to marry Ross MacKay and he has come to collect. So Annabel is abruptly pulled from the abbey to take her place. She is totally unprepared to be a wife and lady of the manor. But those things that made her a bad nun may be just what she will need to the wife of the MacKay. Now if the big guy in the plaid would stop trying to kidnap her.
This is a sweet, funny romance. It is obvious that Ms. Sands has done her research and had a great deal of fun with it. A little romance, a little mystery and a whole lot of fun.
