This request is from C, who is looking for a romance that's possibly from the 80s.
I am looking for a romance novel that I never got to finish when I was
younger because my grandma thought it was inappropriate. Now that I am all
grown up, I want to find and finish this book whose title and author I do
The plot is a young English heroine who has been recently orphaned. Her
perverted Uncle is now her guardian and tries to force himself on her. She
knocks him unconscious and flees to her former nanny. The nanny protects her
by becoming an indentured servant to an American, secreting the girl out of
the country with her. She stays hooded and concealed when they meet her
nanny's new employer, and the nanny tries to pass her off as her tall,
twelve year old daughter.
Anyone know of this book? Wowser. Anyone recall this book? That sounds rather cracktastic!
