The Improper Princesses—three young women descended from royalty,
each bound for her own thrilling adventure . . .
THREE WEEKS WITH A PRINCESS
Improper Princesses #2
Releasing June 27, 2017
In Vanessa Kelly’s captivating series, three young women are descended from royalty in the most improper way. But that doesn’t stop them from pursuing lives rich in adventure. . .
Lia Kincaid, illegitimate daughter of the Duke of York, comes from a long line of notorious women. Raised by her grandmother, formerly mistress to the late Marquess of Lendale, she has little hope of a respectable marriage. But the new Marquess, her childhood friend, Jack Easton, would make a very desirable protector . . . if he weren’t too honorable to take her to bed.
It s bad enough being saddled with a title he never desired. Now Jack must resist the beautiful woman he desires far too much. Duty calls, and he is duty-bound to choose a wealthy bride. But then Lia makes another outrageous suggestion: asking Jack to devise some tests to find her the perfect paramour. Tests that involve flirting, kissing, and other pleasurable pursuits. Tests that, in a matter of weeks, could transform friendship into the ton’s greatest scandal, igniting a passion even duty can’t deny. . .
There was just something so sweet about the love between Lia & Jack that made this the perfect read. Lia and Jack were childhood friends and have grown to be quite important to each other. The two of them together are a perfect match. I don’t know that I’ve ever read a character who has more headstrong as Lia. I loved everything about her; the author just really brought to the reader a female main character that you can just absolutely fall in love with 100%. The way Jack dotes on her, and always wants what is best for her, was a huge indication of his feelings for her; however, like a typical man he didn’t quite realize what his feelings were until other men became interested. I was so excited when they finally had a chance to be together and then was almost instantly groaning in frustration because the author threw a curveball.
This was my first read by author Vanessa Kelly, but I really want to go read the other books in her Improper Princesses series. The whole cast of characters that the author had made for many comedic relief moments while reading. The pacing of the book was almost perfect – not too fast and not too slow – and the read was smoothly transitioned from one point to another. I can’t say enough good things about it.
