Talented storyteller Kelly hooks her readers into book one of her Renegade Royals series, featuring illegitimate sons of princes. She introduces a spy working for the Intelligence Office who meets his match in an intriguing stubborn young woman. Add abduction, a cast of engaging secondary characters and an obsessive, dangerous villain, and this entertaining, sexually charged story is a delight.
When Lady Vivien Shaw is kidnapped, Aden St. George rescues her. He is quite taken with her, but emotions have no place in his work. It is with some relief that he leaves Vivien in the hands of her mother and his mentor, Sir Dominic Hunter, one of England’s most powerful spymasters. Since they do not know the identity of Vivien’s kidnapper, Dominic informs Aden that he must be Vivien’s bodyguard. Vivien is thankful for Aden’s protection and suspects that the prince who is offering for her was behind her abduction. The prince doesn’t give up easily; he threatens Vivien’s family and Aden’s life. Aden senses something is wrong, but will he be too late to save Vivien? (ZEBRA, Jan., 432 pp., $7.99)
