An American writer, Vanessa Kelly has become a strong and independently singular voice in the genre of Regency set romance novels. Taking the medium forwards she has managed to create something entirely new in the process, allowing it to flourish and prosper as a whole. This has lead to her becoming one of the main authorities on the field, with her books selling worldwide to an ever increasing audience of readers.

Early and Personal Life

Born and raised in America, the writer to be Vanessa Kelly would come to love literature from an early age. This is something that she’d continue to work on throughout her upbringing, as she would put all of her experiences growing up back into her work. Over time her voice as a writer developed, allowing her to become a lot more articulate clarifying herself as an author and novelist of fiction.

Reading Jane Austen in high-school she had a clear idea of what she wanted to do from quite an early period. Studying the works of both 18th and 19th century British writers during her time in graduate school, she would come to learn a lot on the subject. This would then give her the academic background and tools that she required in taking her and her writing career forwards.

Following her graduation from university, she then went on to work as a researcher within the public sector. Whilst she enjoyed this her love and passion for Regency lead stories still captivated her like nothing else would. Taking her experiences and her insight gained, she then went on to publish her first novel creating what would be an exemplary writing career.

Currently still writing on a regular basis, she continues to maintain a strong presence both online and off. Living in Ottawa, Ontario in Canada, she resides with her husband, whilst spending the winter months down in Florida. Planning a lot more novels on the horizon, she isn’t stopping any time soon either, as she looks set to continue on into the foreseeable future.

Writing Career

It was in 2009 that Vanessa Kelly would write her first book, as she made her initial debut to much acclaim. Releasing ‘Mastering the Marquess’ she would arrive on the literary scene with the first in the long-running series of ‘The Stanton Family’ novels. This would then lead to her quickly becoming a household name, as it would cement her reputation as a serious writer for many years to come.

Creating a number of series, she has become well known for her grand franchises that are both epic and sprawling in their nature. With ‘The Renegade Royals’, which is a Regency set series about illegitimate heirs, ‘The Stanton Family’, which is a very loose spin-off, and ‘The Improper Princesses’, which is also a spin-off of the first, she has a lot of titles to date. Whilst these are all interconnected in some manner, however loose that connection may be, she is a very consistent in both her themes and ideas.

Also known for writing under the pen-name of V.K. Sykes, she writes alongside her author husband as well. This collaborative effort allows the both of them to explore new avenues within their writing, whilst developing it more in the process too. Producing romantic suspense novels under that name, they both manage to create exciting and highly enthralling stories and characters.

Well known for maintaining a good relationship with her many fans and readers, she has a strong presence as a writer. This allows her to build this into her writing, as she takes feedback in and processes it all into her work. With both her real profile and her pseudonym she has built a strong and reputable brand for herself as a full-time author.

Still writing on a full-time basis, she continues to put out work regularly, with an ever growing audience of readers. Not just read nationally, she is read internationally too, as her themes and ideas are universal to all with their ever timeless appeal. This is something that’s set to continue for some time to come, as there are plenty more releases planned on the horizon.

How To Marry A Royal Highlander

Brought out in 2015 on the 30th of June, this was released to an already eagerly awaiting public, as it was the fourth title in the ongoing series of ‘Renegade Royals’ novels. Published through the ‘Zebra’ publishing label, this continued on from the previous novel, as it marked a progression of the story and characters. Delivering a lot of what the audience had now come to expect with this particular series, it manages to deliver, along with plenty of twists and turns along the way.

An heir to the Scottish throne, the young Alasdair Gilbride fled the Highlands at just sixteen years of age, after being faced with his arranged betrothal. Returning ten years later, Alasdair is somewhat reluctant to face the music, something which is made all the more daunting when also faced with Eden Whitney. Seeing her as one of the most intoxicating women he’s ever laid his eyes on, a passion begins to brew between them both. Can Alasdair ever truly return? How will they overcome their differences? Will they both discover how to marry a highlander?

My Favorite Countess

Released on the 1st of May in 2011, this was first published through the ‘Zebra’ publishing label to much acclaim. Setting up the third part in the ongoing ‘Stanton Family’ series of novels, it works as part of a franchise with its own story to tell. Developing the arcs and the characters, it further establishes the series and the period that it’s set within to an even greater degree.

Faced with an alluring woman, Dr. John Blackmore feels that he can’t quite take his eyes off of the Countess of Randolph; Bethsheba. Supposedly in London with the intention of paying off her late husband’s many debts, she is hunting for a new lover to take care of her. That’s when the two of them meet and passions fly, as she soon finds herself forgetting her original mission amidst the sparks flying between them. Will she find a lover? Can they ever become an item? How will things play out when the Dr. asks ‘what will become of my favorite countess’?
