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…

Their mom has always loved everything about Edie, but she has never stop lecturing Evie for everything. When she finally straps on her BIG GIRL UNDIES, she demanded glasses, so she could stop walking into plants & walls, but Edie was just to vain to get herself some. Evie grew up with her FOREVER guy, Wolf, but he joined the army, deserted her & ripped out her heart. Evie has finally found a man who wants to marry her & take her away from her toxic mom, but he is catholic & her mom doesn't approve, but she hopes her family's house party will prove he is her future hubby.

At her family's house party, bespectacled Evie comes face to face with the man who stepped on her heart & Wolf is delighted to see the BOMBSHELL that his little Evie has grown into & CRAVES her NEKKID body draped across him ASAP. As Wolf & Alec begin their mission, Alec plays interference between Evie & Michael by asking endless questions about their charity, the Hibernian Benevolence Association. Evie knows that Wolf & his Scottish sidekick are up to no good & she & troublemaking Edie are keeping their eyes on them. Soon her mom starts matchmaking & throws Evie at Wolf 24/7 & soon their hormones go NUCLEAR! Since Wolf is in her mom's good graces, he takes Evie on an outing to her charity to sniff out clues about the conspiracy. When a undies drenching runaway kiss leads to a Evie's dropped bodice, they are invaded by a devastated almost fiancé, a happy mom, a shocked twin & a laughing Scot!

Will Wolf wipeout the assassination plot before its too late? Who will kill who first, Alec or Edie? How much chaos will Wolf's FAIRY GODDUDE cause?

This is book #3 of the Renegade Royals series & they just keep getting better & better! Ms. Kelly twists this romance up with the Twin Team against the Cousin Team & it would not of been as great or hilarious without all the kooky twinNESS & the cousins' BROMANCE! Now Evie was the wallflower of the twins, but she never hated Edie for all her popularity & just embrace her unique & troublemaking twin. Evie also thought she had to settle, but Wolf came back & blowup her safe small world apart. Ms. Kelly made Evie take a rough & potholes galore journey & she discovered her inner SEXUAL KRAKEN & never looked back! Now Wolf was the only Renegade so far with a loving family, but he just wanted his royal dad's approval all his life. Of course, Ms. Kelly makes Wolf go against all he ever wanted, his dad, to find his own path & get the girl! As all my romance peeps know, I love myself some PULL THE FIRE ALARM NAUGHTINESS & Ms. Kelly did disappoint me. This book was the HOTTEST of the series & Ms. Kelly filled it with unique available surfaces for the undies scorching scenes that will make all y'all pleasure centers wake & smell the New Year! This action packed romance had it all with espionage, baddies getting their collective a$$es kicked, hilariousness that will make you ROFLing, kooky characters & scenes full of yummy NAUGHTINESS! Ms. Kelly completely earns & deserves my top score of 5 fingers up & 10 toes & I can't wait to get my greedy hands on Alec & Edie tale that I know will be even more HILARIOUS & YUMMY!

NetGalley ARC given for my honest review.
