Next up is…

Award-Winning Author Vanessa Kelly!

Vanessa Kelly is an award-winning author who was named by Booklist, the review journal of the American Library Association, as one of the “New Stars of Historical Romance.”  Her Regency-set historical romances have been nominated for awards in a number of contests, and her second book, Sex and The Single Earl, won the prestigious Maggie Medallion for Best Historical Romance.  Her latest book, My Favorite Countess, was nominated for an RT Reviewers’ Choice Award for Best Regency Historical Romance.

Vanessa spends most of the year in Ottawa, Ontario with her husband, but she’s lucky enough to spend some of the winter near lovely Amelia Island, Florida.  When she’s not dreaming of plots for her next Regency novel, she’s writing contemporary romances with her husband, under the pen name of V.K. Sykes.

Vanessa’s latest release is MY FAVORITE COUNTESS:

Spirited, stubborn, and entirely irresistible…

She is difficult, demanding, and at times, quite fierce.  And Dr. John Blackmore can’t take his eyes off her.  The Countess of Randolph is the most striking woman he has ever seen…and the most infuriating patient he has ever tended.

Mired in responsibility, Bathsheba doesn’t have time to convalesce in the country.  She should be in London, hunting for a wealthy new lover to pay off her late husband’s vast debts, not dallying with a devastatingly handsome doctor.

But it is only a matter of time until the good doctor and the obstinate countess will have to contend with the sparks that fly between them.  Once their bodies surrender, their hearts may follow…

“In her latest sublimely sensual Regency historical, Kelly delivers wit, a tightly knit plot, a refreshingly different hero, and a realistically complicated heroine who could give Scarlett O’Hara a run for her money.”

    I’ve been reading Tessa Dare’s Spindle Cove series. I love Tessa’s historical romances. And I was lucky enough to meet her in person when she spoke to our RWA chapter.
    Vanessa’s book sounds great. And I love that red dress the cover model is wearing.

    Probably Amelia Grey’s AN EARL TO ENCHANT and I just loved the “witty dialogue”!!! Great mystery throughout the story … loved the tenderness shown by both … and had to finish it in one day because I had had had to know the ending.
