One-Eyed Dukes Are Wild

Avon. (Dukes Behaving Badly, Bk. 3). Jan. 2016. 384p. ISBN 9780062412782. pap. $7.99; ebk. ISBN 9780062412775. HISTORICAL ROMANCE
Card-playing, novel-writing, shockingly unmarried Lady Margaret Sawford just knows that the Duke of Lasham, complete with eye patch and piratical air, must be a bit reckless. Unfortunately, she's doomed to disappointment when she discovers he's as boring and responsible as any duke can be. Yet in reality, Lash is tired of being correct all the time and is attracted by Margaret and her unconventional ways. He asks to join her on her various escapades, never dreaming he'd find love in the bargain. Delightful selections from Georgiana and the Dragon, the heroine's novel within this novel, introduce each chapter.
VERDICT An adventure-seeking writer and an oh-so-proper duke take a walk on the wild side with delectable results. This sexy, often funny early Victorian romance captivates from the start. Frampton (Put up Your Duke) lives in Brooklyn.
