Found request for title on another discussion and it sounded interesting but no one has identified yet.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.

I just remembered!

The only one I can think of that might fit is Creole Fires by Kat Martin. The heroine is in disguise as a twelve year old child ans she also gets indentured to the hero.

A WOMAN OF HIDDEN FLAMES
The Louisiana sun beat mercilessly on Nicole St. Claire just as Fate, too, had been merciless. The once wealthy, flirtatious belle stood on the auction block to be sold as a servant. Her sensual figure disguised, her glorious titian hair disheveled, she looked like a waif, but she was all woman, trembling when she recognized the highest bidder--idol of her childhood dreams, the owner of plantation Belle Chene.

A MAN OF BLAZING PASSION
Alex du Villier bought the girl out of pity, but her aqua eyes stirred his soul and her body ignited his blood. She would be the perfect mistress to make him forget his coming marriage to a cold, haughty heiress. Now he intended to teach this innocent beauty that although he had purchased her freedom, he could steal her heart.

AN AFFAIR OF BURNING DESIRES...
Under a Creole moon their passion became a wildfire neither could control, driving them to heart-wrenching choices of silken sin... or freedom and love.

Did we ever get to the bottom of the book search set in Russia with the provocative dress?

As far as I know, it was never identified.

Here is the link to the provocative dress book search:

I know I've read this. I just can't think of the title or author. I may be wrong, but I think that the heroine thought she killed the uncle when she hit him.

After doing a search, I found the post from a year ago.

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
not recall.
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.
