REVIEW: Tall, Dark, and Royal (Renegade Royals #2.5) By, Vanessa Kelly

He’s the man behind the mission to track down the illegitimate children of England’s Royal Princes and help them get their due. But his deepest desire is far more personal… 

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…

This is my first Renegade Royals book and I am kind of sorry that I didn’t read the whole story before I read this one. There is so much background and history between all of the characters that you miss out on if you only read this one. Vanessa Kelly gave us the main details of the character’s life but there was only enough to make you want to go back and read the story again.

While I was not as emotionally invested in the characters as I would like the story was still very good. There were a lot of emotions and tension running through this novella. Chloe and Dominic apart have been through so much. When they were younger they were inseparable and something happened to Chloe that sent them apart for years. Now that they are together again Dominic is going to do whatever he can to break down Chloe’s well-built walls.

Overall this novella was well written. Even though I have not read the first two books this novella makes me want to. I enjoyed reading this novella. It was full of romance, emotion, and intensity. The characters grow and find their happy endings. This series if definitely one you should read.
