    Awesome, amazing, and a must read!

    I loved and enjoyed reading the fabulous and fantastic historical romance by the wonderfully talented Vanessa Kelly. I received a copy from NetGalley for an honest review. Charles Valentine Penley, Duke of Leverton, is suppose to get Gillian Dryan, the illegitimate daughter of a prince, ready to make her debut as a debutante. Leverton, Perfect Penley, finds himself thrown off balance, intrigued, and attracted to Gillian. Gillian tries hard not to fall for handsome Leverton that she keeps letting down by her unladylike ways. Read the beautifully written, highly recommended love story of two opposites destined for each other.

    A princess not defined by her title

    Two opposites who discover and fall deeply in love with another. This isn't a new romance idea. I've read it before. But it's attractive, you know? Like friends to lovers romances. They're familiar while being completely unfamiliar due to circumstances, characters, and, of course, the author. Ms. Kelly is not a new-to-me author. She is not just a standby historical romance author either. She's my go-to when I need a historical romance fix. Her writing is beautiful and clear, precise and engaging. That doesn't change with this story. Charles and Gillian play the opposites attract trope to their advantage. He's her guide to becoming a proper lady. She's the crack in the sidewalk that trips him up every time. Yet, that original reason for coming together doesn't matter one iota when their hearts come into play. Their individual strengths and weaknesses melt away as they come to appreciate one another for who they really are. That knowledge gives them what is, in my opinion, the greatest foundation for their relationship to grow and thrive: trust. The verbal sparring made for great reading but it wasn't the best thing about this story. For me, it was Gillian. She is a wonderfully made character. Her strength resonates from the pages. I laughed plenty as I read her antics, but I applauded and cheered loudly when she remained unmovable despite expectations and demands to become the proper lady she was supposed to be. Her "scandalous" behavior was hardly scandalous but rather an outward display of her unwillingness to compromise and/or change when it came to something she cared deeply about and believed wholeheartedly. Her intelligence added appeal that opened Charles' eyes to all he'd been missing. Propriety has a place but so does impropriety. A life lived consistently within the walls of propriety is a life that hasn't been experienced as it should. That was Charles before Gillian. The Charles after Gillian was a completely different man, one I felt complimented without taking away from the woman Gillian always was. This is a great starter to Ms. Kelly's new series. I wonder what adventures Ms. Kelly will write about the other princesses in this series. I can't wait to find out. Received from author for an honest review

    The Tomboy And The Duke

    I really loved the repartee between the woman from Sicily and the Dashing Duke of England. I really enjoyed their escapades, conversations, interactions and happy ending. I loved it!
