For this stop, Vanessa is sharing her Top Seven Confessions of a Royal Bridegroom. Keep reading for some interesting tidbits about Griffin, the hero from the novel!

Griffin Steele, the hero of Confessions of a Royal Bridegroom, is an exceedingly private man. In fact, one might even call him secretive. But I’ve spent a lot of time with Griffin over the last few months, so I’ve gotten him to open up a bit—in confidence, of course, so keep these under your hat.

1. He doesn’t like to admit it for fear of spoiling his reputation as a big bad, but he hates owning a brothel and he wasn’t that keen on running gaming houses either. Griffin saw them as a means to an end -- although he didn’t mind fleecing some of the more arrogant members of the aristocracy. Oh, and he really likes that his royal uncles, including the Prince Regent, are massively in debt to him.

2. He does not have a spinster fetish, even though he finds himself ridiculously attracted to Justine Brightmore, the walking definition of an annoyingly prim spinster, as far as Griffin is concerned.

3. Even though she abandoned him shortly after his birth, Griffin really would like to know what happened to his mother. He loudly proclaims that he doesn’t care, but it still wounds him to think she rejected him.

4. On the other hand, Griffin has no desire to ever talk to his father, the Duke of Cumberland. The man’s a brute who seduced Griffin’s mother when she was little more than a girl, and Griffin has nothing but contempt for him. Despite his reputation and the fact that he made his living in the “sin” trade, Griffin treats all the women who work for him with respect and decency. He’ll be damned if anyone think he’s a poltroon like his father.

5. Griffin got a tattoo on his chest when he was seventeen -- of a gryphon, a mystical, winged beast. It hurt like hell and now he thinks it’s kind of silly, but he thought it was cool at the time. Well, he still thinks it’s cool, but don’t tell anyone I said that.

6. Griffin dislikes guns. He’d much rather use his wits or his fists, if need be, to solve a problem. And the occasional sword, if really necessary.

7. Griffin never wanted to get married, but when the prim and proper Justine Brightmore walked into his life everything changed. But he still swears he doesn’t have a spinster fetish.

Thank you, Vanessa! Griffin sounds very interesting. ^_^

About the book:

ONLY ONE WOMAN IS WORTHY OF HIS SECRETS...

Some men are born into scandal. Others pursue it with a passion. Griffin Steele, secret son of the Duke of Cumberland, is guilty on both counts. Yet somehow London’s most notorious scoundrel has been saddled with an abandoned baby boy -- and with the unflappable, intriguing spinster summoned to nurse him ...

Justine Brightmore may be a viscount’s niece, but she’s also a spy’s daughter, determined to safeguard the infant when his suspected royal parentage makes him a target. Yet how to protect herself from the rakish Griffin? Marriage might shield her reputation, but it can only imperil her heart, especially with a groom intent on delicious seduction ...
