Tall, Duke, and Dangerous

Tall, Duke, and Dangerous

by Megan Frampton

Description

Megan Frampton returns with the second book in the Hazards of Dukes series, a series that made Sarah MacLean say “Make Megan Frampton your next read!”

He needs a bride…

Nash, the “dangerous” Duke of Malvern, has always bristled against the rules of English society. Hot tempered and fearful of becoming like his brutish late father, he lives a life of too much responsibility and too little joy. And although he’s vowed to never marry, a duke has a duty—and there’s only one way to get himself an heir and a spare. So Nash reluctantly takes a look around at society’s available young ladies to see who might be willing to put up with his one-word answers and frequent glowers.

She longs for love…

After the death of her father and wicked stepmother, Ana Maria goes from virtual servant to lady-in-training, and while society life has its benefits—gorgeous gowns!—its restrictive rules stifle her sprit. And when her independent actions put her in danger, her half-brother insists Nash teach her some self-defense. While most of London’s ladies find Nash intimidating, she only sees a man who needs introducing to all the joys life has to offer. So although officially they are coming together for fighting lessons, unofficially their physical contact begins to blur the line between friendship and begins to grown into something more…

Review

I wanted to love this story. I really did. I just wasn’t in the right mindset to read it. And that lead to me forcing myself to finish the story not because I was invested but just because I felt like I should. Apparently I should have read the previous book before this one and that would have helped. There were things about this book that were lovely. A heroine who, while always a lady, went from being a servant to actually being a lady and is now trying to find her place in the world. A hero with serious family issues but who has been Ana Maria’s friend for a long time. And then there’s the “teaching me to fight for my protection” leading into “teach me about passion”. All the elements for a story I’d really enjoy and yet, I wasn’t engaged. I’m going to blame this one on my state of mind and say it’s a solid 3 star and probably a higher rating for another reader.
