The heart is its own worst enemy. It wants what it wants and whether good or bad is a deciding factor in the choices one makes. Megan Frampton gives comedic insight with “Why Do Dukes Fall In Love?”. It is so refreshing to read a story where not everything has to be a complicating mass of confusion. It didn't hurt that Michael, our hero, was not afraid to show his sensitive side. Love is messy, but it's not rocket science. Edwina and Michael's romance is a hotbed of sweetness sprinkled with spice.
In Megan Frampton’s captivating new Dukes Behaving Badly novel, we learn the answer to the question:
Why do dukes fall in love?
Michael, the Duke of Hadlow, has the liberty of enjoying an indiscretion . . . or several. But when it comes time for him to take a proper bride, he ultimately realizes he wants only one woman: Edwina Cheltam. He’d hired her as his secretary, only to quickly discover she was sensuous and intelligent.
They embark on a passionate affair, and when she breaks it off, he accepts her decision as the logical one . . . but only at first. Then he decides to pursue her.
Michael is brilliant, single-minded, and utterly indifferent to being the talk of the ton. It’s even said his only true friend is his dog. Edwina had begged him to marry someone appropriate–—someone aristocratic . . . someone high-born . . . someone else. But the only thing more persuasive than a duke intent on seduction is one who has fallen irrevocably in love.
