9780062412782: One-Eyed Dukes Are Wild: A Dukes Behaving Badly Novel

When does proper behavior deserve a deliciously improper reward?

The scandalously unmarried Lady Margaret Sawford is looking for adventure—and is always up for a challenge. Her curiosity is aroused by a dangerous-looking stranger with an eye patch, an ideal companion for the life she longs for, no matter what Society might say. So when the piratical gentleman turns out to be a duke—and just as boringly proper as any other nobleman—she can't help but incite him to walk on the wild side.

Well-heeled, well-mannered, and well beyond any interest in society's expectations, the Duke of Lasham is tired of being perfect. Margaret's lush beauty and gently laughing eyes are an irresistible temptation to embrace the imperfect—and her. But if a little misbehavior is appealing, unleashing his wild side is completely seductive—as long as the lovely Margaret is the object of his passion . . .

About the Author:

Megan Frampton writes historical romance under her own name and romantic women’s fiction as Megan Caldwell. She likes the color black, gin, dark-haired British men, and huge earrings, not in that order. She lives in Brooklyn, New York, with her husband and son.

From Publishers Weekly:

Frampton's latest Regency never quite delivers on its promising premise. Lady Margaret Sawford is "a lady of scandal": an unmarried writer, an advocate for disadvantaged women, and a skilled card player. She is looking for an opponent "worthy of her skill and attention." The Duke of Lasham has an enigmatic and piratical appearance, caused by the patch over the eye he lost years earlier. He is tired of the dullness of running a duchy and wants adventure. From the time they first meet, Margaret and Lasham fight their attraction to each other, but they keep ending up in situations that are socially, physically, and emotionally compromising. Margaret and Lasham's conflicted romance is slow to evolve, as is the extended story of their trips to seedier parts of London to assist downtrodden women. The heroine and the dragon of Margaret's serialized story serve as a metaphor for Margaret's relationship with Lasham, creating a nice thread through the narrative, but that tale also lacks development. There are several sensual interludes between the two protagonists, and their verbal sparring is witty, but both the encounters and discussions become repetitive. The references to both Margaret and Lasham's family history hint at a deeper dimension to the characters, leaving readers wishing more had been done to bring it out. Agent: Louise Fury, Bent Agency. (Jan.)\n
