Praise for The Renegade Royals Series:
“Kelly combines diverting dialogue, delightful surprises and finely tuned pacing to make this a winner.” ~Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Praise for The Improper Princesses Series:
“Kelly launches her new Improper Princesses series with another superbly crafted Regency historical romance that puts a clever spin on My Fair Lady while at the same time delivering the usual elegant writing, tempered with a deliciously dry wit and artfully nuanced characters readers have come to expect from her.” ~Booklist
Ewan Mostyn thinks a job as a duke's daughter's bodyguard will be easy—but Lady Lorraine has a few tricks up her sleeve that spark an undeniable passion
Fiercely loyal to his friends and comrades, Ewan Mostyn is the toughest in a group of younger sons of nobility who met as soldiers and are now trying desperately to settle back into peaceful Society. Ewan trusts his brawn more than his brains, but when he's offered a job watching the Duke of Ridlington's stubbornly independent daughter, he finds both are challenged.
Lady Lorraine wants none of her father's high-handed ways, and she'll do everything in her power to avoid her distressingly attractive bodyguard—until she lands herself in real trouble. Lorraine begins to see Ewan's protectiveness in a new light, and she can only hope that her stoic guardian will do for her what he's always done—fight for what he wants.

Another enthralling romance from Vanessa Kelly’s bestselling series about the illegitimate sons of English royalty…
Captain Roman Cantrell, illegitimate son of a royal duke, served his country as a ruthless privateer on the high seas. But the war is over and his father orders him home to London to find a respectable wife, one who will help restore his reputation amongst the ton.
But the only woman Roman finds remotely attractive is the opposite of respectable. Antonia Barnett is decidedly unconventional, positively scandalous—and entirely enchanting. Unfortunately, she’s also the daughter of his greatest rival, a man who believes that Roman’s dangerous past will come back to haunt him.
But troublesome fathers and ruthless enemies are no match for Antonia—as Roman is about to find out…
Previously published in the anthology, THE DUKES OF VAUXHALL
Sunt oameni a căror naștere provoacă un adevărat scandal. Și sunt oameni care aleg să ducă o viață scandaloasă. Griffin Steele, fiul secret al ducelui de Cumberland, face parte din ambele categorii.
Unul dintre cei mai cunoscuți oameni din Londra și proprietarul unui tripou, Griffin se pregătea să-și lase afacerile și să plece într-o călătorie în Orient, când la ușa lui este lăsat un bebeluș, alături de un bilet prin care i se spune că acesta este în pericol. Dominic Hunter, mentorul lui cel insistent, i-o trimite în ajutor pe Justine Brightmore, pentru a se ocupa de îngrijirea micuțului. Nepoată de viconte și totodată fiica unui spion, Justine s-a angajat să apere cu orice preț copilul abandonat, devenit o țintă din cauza unei presupuse descendențe regale. Cum s-ar putea însă apăra ea însăși de libertinul Griffin? Căsătoria cu el îi poate salva reputația, dar îi va pune în mare pericol inima, cu atât mai mult cu cât mirele se dovedește a fi un seducător pasional.
Și dacă mariajul le-a fost forțat de împrejurări, va fi îndeajuns doar pasiunea pentru ca în final să clădească împreună o relație bazată pe afecțiune... sau poate chiar pe dragoste?
