Griffin has made his fortune through his gambling halls and his brothel. Now he is in the process of selling off all of his disreputable businesses for more respectable pursuits. When a baby is delivered to him with a cryptic note to keep the infant safe, Griffin tries to find out who left him, to no avail. Now, taxed with dealing with a baby in the midst of his other concerns, Griffin needs help. Not wanting the child taken care of by prostitutes and needing someone to look into the threats behind the child’s situation, he turns to his friend, spymaster Dominic. But the last thing he expects is for Dominic to bring his goddaughter to live in Griffin’s home, which is next door to the brothel.

Justine Brightmore, the daughter of a spy and goddaughter of Dominic, has taken care of the accounts for her father, including the sensitive documents, although there are some things he would not allow even her to see. With her father’s recent death, she has been working as a companion to an elderly lady in the country. But when Dominic asks her to help him out by caring for a baby, even if it is at a brothel, she cannot refuse him, despite the risk to her reputation and safety. He has always been there for her whenever she needed him. To keep her from being ruined, she is not supposed to go out or let anyone see her there. But when the girls in the brothel face danger while Griffin is elsewhere, she takes matters into her own hands and soon finds herself wed to him.

As she and Griffin spend a great deal of time together as a married couple, while trying to keep the baby safe and find his parents, Justine struggles to keep her heart safe. But Griffin has fallen for his bride and is determined to seduce her into being his forever.

A deliciously romantic tale, CONFESSIONS OF A ROYAL BRIDEGROOM, the second book in award winning author Vanessa Kelly’s THE RENEGADE ROYALS series, is a clever, sensual historical romance that is absolutely unputdownable. Although Griffin and Justine did not seem to like each other upon first meeting, it doesn’t take long for things to heat up between them as they are forced to spend time in each other’s company. Meanwhile, Dominic seems to have plans of his own. Justine’s interaction with the prostitutes and her love for the baby is heartwarming.

A brothel full of prostitutes, a mysteriously abandoned baby, royalty, political intrigue, danger, suspense, scorching sensuality, a marriage of convenience and love combine to give readers an unforgettable story. Although this story can be read as a standalone, I am sure that readers new to this series will also want to check out the first book of the series, SECRETS FOR SEDUCING A ROYAL BODYGUARD. Meanwhile, as I look forward to the next addition to this wonderful series, be sure to pick up a copy of CONFESSIONS OF A ROYAL BRIDEGROOM for yourself. I am sure you will be glad you did!
