Overview

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?…

    For a short work, I liked it

    The character development was rushed, as is to be expected. With that in mind, I award it four stars. The premise was oddly refreshing as it focused on those people who operate at the margins of the monarchy, walking a fine line betwen familiarity with the royals and offense.

    80 page teaser

    For the rest of the books one would have to buy.
    I am not convinced I wanna buy.
    Well written, good luck to the author. I dunno how well these books functions as baits to sell subsequent books but if anything, she does write well and deserves it.

    London 1786- Linnet St. Clare has gone to Sir Anthony Tait to a

    London 1786-

    Linnet St. Clare has gone to Sir Anthony Tait to ask for his help in taking Dominic Hunter into his household. Dominic, an orphaned butcher's son, was taken in by the Queen in hopes that he would give her sons a greater empathy with England's lower class. In fact, the opposite occurs and they tease and cruelly pick on him. Linnet sits down with Anthony and explains what has occurred and why she needs his help.

    She comes upon Chloe Steel, the Reverend Steel's daughter, right after the fact of her being seduced by Prince Ernest in the gardens. Dominic comes upon them seconds later and they start to brawl with Dominic soundly trouncing the Prince. Linnet throws a bucket of water on the Prince to break them up and she boxes the Prince's ears telling him that if he speaks of this to anyone she will beat him within an inch of his life. Dominic and Chloe are best friends and he feels such guilt for not protecting her properly. With Anthony being the liaison for the Court and the Home Office, Linnet feels he can step in and get Dominic released from the Court and into his guardianship. Anthony agrees to help.

    Anthony has had his eye on Linnet for some while now and wants to take her as a wife but Linnet stands firm in her wishes to remain a spinster. Her mother works for the Crown and Linnet takes care of her brother and sister while her mother is away. The attraction builds and she tries to deny it at every turn until a chance encounter in a study while they are both at a house party in the country. She finally gives in to her feelings and when Anthony begins to tell her their future plans, she gets enraged that he cannot even ask for her hand, but just expects it, and she storms out.

    Weeks pass and they don't speak when suddenly in the middle of the night he hears banging on his front door. Linnet tells him that Chloe is pregnant and that her and Dominic have run off together. They leave to track them down and find them at an inn. Linnet and Anthony talk to them about the dangers of what they've done. Dominic would not be able to provide for them even if they made it to America and talk them into coming back home. Chloe's father is sending her to her uncle until the baby is born. Linnet and Anthony begin talking about marriage again when she tells him she can't marry because of her responsibilities and he makes it clear they will bring Amelia and Peter to live with them until her mother decides she's ready to leave her service to the Queen and come home.

    The story ends with letters exchanged between Chloe and Dominic that sets the story up for the new four book series that follows, The Renegade Royals. Dominic Hunter's story continues in this series and I look forward to following him on his journey.

    I loved the way all the characters interacted. I enjoyed watching Anthony on the prowl for what he wanted and smiled as he became truly frustrated at times with Linnet. I'm sure he wanted to go all caveman on her but held back for decency's sake. She, on the other hand fought her own self over her feelings. She couldn't get around him without blushing and felt she wasn't good enough for him. When these two finally came together, it was like taking a deep breath and releasing a happy sigh. This novella did not feel rushed at all and kept a pace that kept me happily in the story and eagerly awaiting the next book, Secrets For Seducing a Royal Bodyguard!

    As I posted earlier I don't enjoy historical romance novel that take place around 1786 but I loved Vanessa Kelly's 1st book in the Renegade Royal series. Linnet is such a MOM but in a good way. Anthony was the royals 24/7 for 365 days. It's a miracle he did drop dead before Linnet could overtake his stressful life. I really loved Dominic and Chloe and can't wait for their story. Griffin's book is next and I already love him!! I give this book 5 fingers up and 8 toes.

    No.

    I love this era but this boo doesn't really put up with the hight stories that can come out of it. Too long for the story trying to portrait so it really it's not difficult to put down. I liked the characters but you can't really rely with them on anything. Don't buy it, read it if it's free.
