Exclusive Cover Reveal: Vanessa Kelly's MY FAIR PRINCESS

We love revealing covers for lots of reasons: getting excited for a new book, ogling the pretty dresses, adding to our ever-growing TBR pile. But, if we may be frank with you, and we think we can, we also really enjoy checking out the heroes. And the hero on the cover of Vanessa Kelly's first in her Improper Princesses series My Fair Princess is HOT. H-O-T HOT. We call 'em like we seem 'em here at RT. But first, the blurb! (We're such teases!)

Despite being the illegitimate daughter of a prince, Gillian Dryden is happily ignorant of all social graces. After growing up wild in Italy, Gillian has been ordered home to England to find a suitable husband. And Charles Valentine Penley, the excessively proper, distractingly handsome Duke of Leverton, has agreed to help transform her from a willful tomboy to a blushing debutante.

Powerful and sophisticated, Charles can make or break reputations with a well-placed word. But his new protégée, with her habit of hunting bandits and punching earls, is a walking scandal. The ton is aghast . . . but Charles is thoroughly intrigued. Tasked with taking the hoyden in hand, he longs to take her in his arms instead. Can such an outrageous attraction possibly lead to a fairytale ending?

We love him. Look how he's clutching her dress! The dreamiest. My Fair Princess will be with us in September. Until then, why not check out our Everything Romance page?
