Aden St. George is a spy who prefers to stay away from the
ton. Unfortunately, his latest mission is to protect
unconventional Lady Vivien Shaw. Rescuing her from
kidnappers was easy, but keeping his hands off her is not.
Aden must control his impulses if he is to keep Lady Vivien
and himself alive, and bring the kidnappers to justice.
Vanessa Kelly has written a romance filled with intrigue and
passion. Aden is a wonderful hero with dark secrets and a
dangerous job as a spy. His job brings mystery and intrigue
to SECRETS FOR SEDUCING A ROYAL BODYGUARD, and helps create
shadowy plot twists, and a few surprising twists and turns.
Vivien has her fare share of family problems, yet her
passion and happiness makes her a character readers will
effortlessly connect with. The secondary characters are
and move the plot along. The villain is exceptionally evil
and will raise the hairs on the back of the reader's neck
every time he enters the story.
I do find SECRETS FOR SEDUCING A ROYAL BODYGUARD to be a bit
slow in places, and I find myself drowning in repetitive
descriptions, and for a story based around a spy, the lack
of adventure was disappointing. Aden spends most of his time
babysitting Vivien, and the ending is wrapped up quickly and
almost too easily.
Kelly was able to write steamy and passionate romance scenes
between Vivien and Aden, which I enjoy, and the characters
they meet in St. Clement are unexpected and fun. SECRETS FOR
SEDUCING A ROYAL BODYGUARD is a romance with sensuality and
emotion, but little adventure.
In this witty, sensual new series, Vanessa Kelly
introduces the Renegade Royals, illegitimate sons of the
Royal Princes who are finding their rightful places in
society. . .
Accomplished spy Aden St. George prefers to stay away from
the frivolous ton, especially after the way his mother was
used by the Prince Regent. But his latest mission compels
him to guard unconventional, vibrant Lady Vivien Shaw.
Rescuing her from kidnappers was easy. Resisting her beauty
is not. Duty demands he keep an eye on her--and naturally,
his lips soon follow. For someone who views entanglements as
a weakness, this is pure, delicious folly...
Though grateful for Aden's help, Vivien has secrets she must
keep hidden. Yet with her abductors still at large, she
needs Aden's protection almost as much as she craves his
