One-Eyed Dukes Are Wild
Dukes Behaving Badly #3
“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 . . .”
This story has an interesting twist I don’t too often see in historical romances and that is the hero being the prim and proper one and the heroine being rebellious.
I enjoyed this novel, but I feel like there was a bit much going on in the secondary plot, and there could have been more character development. Not that Lady Margaret is anything but an admirable, strong, woman, but the Duke’s emotions could have been more naturally evolved.
Overall I recommend.
