Megan Frampton returns to the blog with the second in her Hazards of Dukes series
Tall, Duke, and Dangerous
Nash is reluctantly taken over the dukedom from his abusive and ignoble father: searching out and finding all his ‘illegitimate’ brothers and sisters, taking care of them, and generally using his fists to speak when he can’t find the words. He’s gained a reputation as a hot-tempered and closemouthed ruffian, but in his heart is so much more.
Ana Maria has, now with her Cinderella-like stepmother’s death, ascended to the role she should have had all along, Lady. With her brothers allowing her some freedoms and the money to do as she will, her seasons are much more interesting, even if her best known topics of conversation all revolve around cleaning. Determined to make her own life and not be subjected to a ‘half life” she knows Nash from when they were children – but this Nash is all grown up and gives her chills.
Frampton takes these two very broken childhood friends made ‘good’ and gives them a plot that allows them to grow, together and apart, and allows Nash the opportunity to show that he’s far more than “just like” his horrid father and can be everything to Ana Maria that she wants and needs. Steamy and hot, with plenty of ‘input’ from family and friends, the story is a lovely taste of Frampton’s writing and development of characters and relationships, giving readers a new couple to watch: if only for their more modern ideas they intend to share with society.

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 spirit. 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…
