It’s a funny thing about romance. There are some authors who write great sometimes, but are kind of hit and miss.
One of the reasons I like Vanessa Kelly’s books so much is because she comes up with great series hooks, populates them with smart, sexy, vibrant characters and then lets them loose on each other.
You can depend on her books to hit that romance sweet spot every time!
I’m especially enjoying her current series, Clan Kendrick, which is a kind of spin-off from her last series, The Improper Princesses, since in the last book, the eldest Kendrick married the last “improper princess” and we met the lively, boisterous clan.
All of the Kendricks have wounds and vices they have to overcome, but as the best romance novels do, Kelly has paired them all with the exact right partner to steady them and win them a happily ever after.

THE HIGHLANDER’S PRINCESS BRIDE
The illegitimate daughter of the Prince Regent might be expected to pursue various dubious professions. Actress, perhaps, or artist’s model. Even courtesan. Victoria Knight, however, has become a governess—a respectable choice, until she travels to Scotland to meet her new charges.
The younger brothers of Nicholas Kendrick, Earl of Arnprior, aren’t children at all. They’re brawny, wild Highland men. As for the Earl, he’s handsome, guarded, and far too compelling . . . especially for a woman hiding a dark secret.
Nick needs a proper teacher to transform his unmarriageable brothers—and a sensible, straight-laced wife for himself. Miss Knight seems to fit the bill on both counts. But he soon discovers there is more to Victoria than he thought. It’s not just her notorious origins, or the danger that’s followed her all the way to Scotland. It’s the fiery loyalty beneath that sedate façade. This, the real Victoria, is the woman Nick is starting to desire so desperately. And what an earl wants, he’ll use every seductive means to get . . .
