Quote Cards 1

Only a few more weeks till the release of Lost in a Royal Kiss, the kick-off to my new historical romance series, The Renegade Royals.  Woot!  You can find more info on the series on my Books Page, which includes blurbs, excerpts, and reviews, including this Top Pick from Night Owl Reviews for Lost:

“I absolutely loved this book, and I simply can’t wait to dive into the next book, Secrets for Seducing a Royal Bodyguard. Romance fans seeking a sweet and sexy romance with heart and just enough spice should look no further. This book will definitely fit the bill.”

Have a great Saturday!


Cover Reveal!!

It’s been an exciting week for me!  My editor sent me the covers for the first works in my upcoming historical series with Kensington Publishing, The Renegade Royals.  This is the cover for Lost in a Royal Kiss, which is the e-novella that kicks the series off.  Isn’t it simply gorgeous?!

And here’s the blurb:

In this thrilling introduction to her Renegade Royals series, Vanessa Kelly transports readers to the court of King George III—where a London street urchin unwittingly plays Cupid, ushering in a new era—and ultimately a new kind of royal…

With her widowed mother working long hours as governess to the royal children, Linnet St. Clare must look after her siblings and run the household. Now she must add to her worries the fate of Dominic, a poor orphan who has inspired the wrath of the king himself. Clearly Linnet has no time to consider her own desires—much less notice the attentions of a certain handsome, powerful magistrate…

Sir Anthony Tait is at a loss for how to capture Linnet’s interest. If only she would be still long enough for courting. Outright seduction seems the only answer. But will his kisses be enough to persuade her—or might Anthony have something to learn from young Dominic about matters of the heart? And in saving the boy’s future, might Anthony and Linnet at last create their own?

Cool, eh?  Later this weekend I’ll publish the cover and blurb for book one in the series, Secrets for Seducing a Royal Bodyguard.  Oh, and Lost in a Royal Kiss will be out in December, with Secrets to follow in January.  More details to come!!


New Regency Historical Series!

I’ve been hinting about my new Regency historical series with Kensington Publishing for a few months now, so I’m really thrilled to be able to announce titles and release dates.  The series will be called Renegade Royals, and it’s about four sexy alpha males who also happen to be the illegitimate offspring of Britain’s royal princes.  These four roguish cousins will get into all kinds of scrapes and adventures as work they claim their rightful place in society, and win the hands of the strong-willed women who love them.

There will be two novellas and four books released in a two year period. 

Lost in a Royal Kiss will be released in December, 2013, and is a digital novella that will introduce some of the main characters and set up the premise for the series.

A Royal’s Rules for Love is book one in the series, and will be released in both print and digital in January, 2014.

Confessions of a Royal Bridegroom is book two in the series, and will be released in both print and digital in April, 2014.

The second digital novella will be released in December 2014, and books three and four will follow early in 2015.

My editor and I are very excited about this series, and I can’t wait to share covers, excerpts, and lots of other fun details with you.  If you want to keep up with all the latest news on the Renegade Royals series, please sign up for my newsletter.  And you might also want to check out my Pinterest board, my collection of pictures and various inspirations for the new books.  I really have fun brainstorming on Pinterest and I’d love it if you joined me – I also have a great Cupcakes and Cakes Pinterest board, for those of you with a sweet tooth!
