Sealed With a Kiss Event with 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 current series, The Renegade Royals, is a national bestseller. Vanessa also writes USA Today Bestselling contemporary romance with her husband under the pen name of V.K. Sykes.

The course of true love doesn’t always run smoothly, as you’ll see in the letters between Capt. Will Endicott and Miss Evie Whitney, the hero and heroine of How to Plan a Wedding for a Royal Spy. Will and Evie were best friends and childhood sweethearts—until Will broke Evie’s heart by marching off to war and a career as a military spy. But Evie did recover and even found herself a beau. In fact, Evie and her beau are on the verge of getting engaged. Until, that is, Will comes back into Evie’s life and they once more fall in love.

But there’s a catch. Will is still an intelligence agent and he’s on one last mission. And that mission includes spying on Evie, since her former beau is suspected of treason. Throw in a few scandalous encounters, a wardrobe malfunction, and a hasty marriage proposal, and things are getting complicated!

This exchange was written shortly after Evie discovered that Will was spying on her. They might not be conventional love letters but, after all, successful couples do need to learn how to work through their problems!





Check out Evie and Will's love story in How To Plan a Wedding for a Royal Spy.


Whether as spies or lovers, the Renegade Royals—illegitimate sons of England’s Royal Princes—are bold, skillful, and a force to be reckoned with…

A war hero returned from Waterloo should be able to indulge in a bit of bad behavior. Instead, Captain William Endicott is summoned by his father, the Duke of York, to investigate an assassination plot. The unlikely suspect: William’s former sweetheart. Will can’t believe that innocent Evie Whitney could be mixed up in anything so nefarious. Then again, almost everything about Evie has changed—except for his body’s instinctive response to hers…

Just as Evie’s life is finally coming together, Will saunters back into it. Should she slap him—or seduce him? Even as she tries to decide, scandal pushes her toward marriage with a man she can neither trust nor resist—and into the heart of a deadly conspiracy…

  7. Ahhh, Vanessa.... Long time no talk to! Great to see you here!
    "Innocent Evie"??? Methinks she isn't (at least in one way, LOL)!

  8. Oh Vanessa, how I love your stories, including this one! That scalawag Will should know that women do NOT like secrets withheld from them. So Will better make sure his "mission" is over soon before Evie does take matters into her own hands! Thanks for the post. jdh2690@gmail.com

  9. WOW! Will sounds like a very strong and heroic man. But, keeping secrets from Evie, does not sound like a good plan. This does appear to be a story I will want to read and enjoy.
