Accomplished spy Aden St. George prefers to stay away from the frivolous ton, especially after the way his mother was used by the Prince Regent. But his latest mission compels him to guard unconventional, vibrant Lady Vivien Shaw. Rescuing her from kidnappers was easy. Resisting her beauty is not.

Though grateful for Aden's help, Vivien has secrets she must keep hidden.

Publisher's Summary

Accomplished spy Aden St. George prefers to stay away from the frivolous ton, especially after the way his mother was used by the Prince Regent. But his latest mission compels him to guard unconventional, vibrant Lady Vivien Shaw. Rescuing her from kidnappers was easy. Resisting her beauty is not. Duty demands he keep an eye on her, and naturally, his lips soon follow. For someone who views entanglements as a weakness, this is pure, delicious folly. Though grateful for Aden's help, Vivien has secrets she must keep hidden. Yet with her abductors still at large, she needs Aden's protection almost as much as she craves his touch.

    What did you like best about Secrets for Seducing a Royal Bodyguard? What did you like least?

    I have listened to only four hours of this book, and I'm sorry, I just cannot go on! I really, really like Veida Dehmlow, but even she couldn't make this enjoyable. I'm not certain I can adequately describe the tedium. For every moment of dialogue there was at least 3-5 minutes of inner contemplation, and most of this centered on how badly the character had been treated by a family member but how much the character cherished the family member anyway. Or how the hero was instantly taken with the heroine (or vice versa) and how unsettling the feeling was. The hero and heroine are often unsettled, and amidst all this inner turmoil, they're busy gazing at each other's lips or observing social proprieties..and all of this while escaping kidnappers. There was so much thinking after each spoken sentence that I'd forget what was said to get the person thinking. I thought that after the first few chapters there would be more dialogue and less explanation of the situation through inner reflection, but I finally gave up hope. I didn't like any of the characters, but especially the heroine, who was the epitome of stupidity.


    What could Vanessa Kelly have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    She could've gotten someone else to write it for her. It was a decent premise...maybe she could've just provided an outline.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I never got to one I liked.


    Was Secrets for Seducing a Royal Bodyguard worth the listening time?

    No!
