Leverton didn’t seem to share her discomfort, since his arousal apparently hadn’t decreased at all. She had some knowledge of the male physique, from personal experience and observation of ancient statuary. If Leverton was not an anomaly, she was going to have to revise her understanding of the general dimensions of the male appendage.
Finally, he pushed up a bit, which nudged his erection against a certain delicate spot. Gillian couldn’t hold back a tiny squeak.
“Sorry,” he whispered with a grimace. Then he craned over the dune and breathed a relieved sigh. “I think we’re in the clear.”
“Then get off me at once,” Gillian ordered in a low voice.
“Right.” He sounded rather sheepish, as he should. But when he quickly rolled off her, Gillian had to stifle an instinctive sigh of regret.
There was little doubt she was suffering a bizarre form of insanity. Leverton had snuck up on her, squashed her, and generally treated her like a totty-headed female. And yet all she wanted to do was pull him back down, wrap her arms around his broad shoulders, and kiss him senseless.
TODAY’S REVOLVING BOOK is the historical romance MY FAIR PRINCESS by Vanessa Kelly. NEW RELEASE! #REGENCY!
First, Vanessa Kelly brought readers The Renegade Royals. Now, in a delightfully witty new series, she introduces The Improper Princesses—three young women descended from royalty, each bound for her own thrilling adventure . . .
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?

STELLAR REVIEWS For MY FAIR PRINCESS:
“Gillian’s antics imbue her story with energy and some intrigue, but the most affecting part of Kelly’s tale is Charles’s development as he falls in love with Gillian and breaks free of complacency and propriety. This is a fun ride with a colorful, adventurous heroine and a happily disconcerted, formerly perfect hero.” ~Publishers Weekly
“When a scandal-ridden heroine meets the perfect duke, it’s a recipe for catastrophe. Throw in sparkling dialogue and attraction that sizzles and MY FAIR PRINCESS is my favorite book of 2016″ – Bronwen Evans, USA Today Bestselling Historical Author
For The Renegade Royals Series:
“Kelly combines diverting dialogue, delightful surprises, and finely tuned pacing to make this a winner.” ~Starred review from Publishers Weekly for SECRETS FOR SEDUCING A ROYAL BODYGUARD
“Kelly pairs a rogue of a hero with a courageous heroine. With a few returning characters, an abandoned infant, political intrigue and forgiveness, Kelly keeps her readers’ attention until the highly satisfying end to a sensual, well-plotted and wonderfully crafted love story.” ~RT Book Reviews, 4-1/2 stars on CONFESSIONS OF A ROYAL BRIDEGROOM
“HOW TO MARRY A ROYAL HIGHLANDER kept me in stitches! What I found most refreshing was the unique plot, which is sometimes difficult to find with these historical romances, as the typical trope is so tried and true. However, Highlander definitely had my rapt attention.” ~Smexy Books
