In this thrilling introduction to her Renegade Royals series, Vanessa Kelly transports readers to the court of King George III—where a London street urchin unwittingly plays Cupid, ushering in a new era—and ultimately a new kind of royal…

With her widowed mother working long hours as governess to the royal children, Linnet St. Clare must look after her siblings and run the household. Now she must add to her worries the fate of Dominic, a poor orphan who has inspired the wrath of the king himself. Clearly Linnet has no time to consider her own desires—much less notice the attentions of a certain handsome, powerful magistrate…

Sir Anthony Tait is at a loss for how to capture Linnet’s interest. If only she would be still long enough for courting. Outright seduction seems the only answer. But will his kisses be enough to persuade her—or might Anthony have something to learn from young Dominic about matters of the heart? And in saving the boy’s future, might Anthony and Linnet at last create their own?

My Rating: 5 Roses

A lovely introduction to a new series, Lost in a Royal Kiss was a fantastic historical romance novella. I really enjoyed reading this sweet novella. I absolutely loved it!

Linnet was a great heroine. She's very loyal to her loved ones and determined to do her duty to her family, even if she has to sacrifice what she wants. She was strong, determined, and clever. I really liked her. I thought she was great.

Anthony was also wonderful. He's absolutely determined to win Linnet over. He was very sweet, cunning, and truly kind. He was a true gentleman at heart. I adored him. I thought he was perfect.

The romance was sweet and spicy. Linnet and Anthony were perfect together. Both of them had been infatuated with each other for a while, so it was sweet seeing that emotion finally grow. And, there were certainly sparks between these two. They were definitely compatible in every way ;)

The plot was fast paced. I was hooked the entire way through. There was a ton of royal drama to keep me riveted. I really enjoyed the story and the ending was lovely. I can't wait to see more from this series.

Lost in a Royal Kiss was a brilliant historical romance novella. I absolutely loved it! It had sweet and steamy romance, royal drama and I enjoyed every bit of it. Lovers of romance, this something you'll definitely want to read.
