ARC Review ~ Tall, Dark and Royal by Vanessa Kelly

Tall, Dark and Royal (The Renegade Royals #2.5)

by Vanessa Kelly

~ Categories ~ Regency, Historical romance

Magnificent and stubborn. Fourteen years apart had not changed Chloe Steele, or Dominic’s love for her. He’d been a street urchin, a boy raised at court, and finally a magistrate, yet he’d never belonged anywhere—except by her side. Now Chloe devoted herself to girls threatened by scandal—like she had been. But she was in danger, and Dominic was determined to help—and hopefully make up for lost time…

Even in childhood, Dominic had made Chloe feel safe. Now she also felt thrillingly flustered by the powerful man he’d become, and by the longing he inspired. Because Dominic meant not only to protect her, but to untangle the lies that had separated them. Yet for Chloe, surrendering to temptation may be easier than risking a future that could ruin them both.

I got to read this unique novella as part of "How to Marry a Royal Highlander (#4)". It's a story of a man and a women who became friends as children and an awful situation that happens to a young girl, Chloe and how her life as she knows it is destroyed. It tells a story of her strength to change her life and a boy who becomes a man that still loves this women he no longer knows. It is a quick read, though there are parts where I got a little lost and had to reread them, an enjoyable read. It has intrigue, forgiveness and love.

I loved how Chloe's character was developed and she was shown as strong and able to survive her obstacles with grace. It was very refreshing to have the male lead, Dominic, be faithful in his love for her.
