Title: Lady Be Bad
Once upon a time, a duke had five daughters who never made a stir. They practiced their French, their pianoforte, and their dancing…until one ran off with the dancing instructor, and the rest were left to face the scandal.
Lady Eleanor, the Duke of Marymount’s eldest daughter, knows the burden is hers: she must marry well to restore the family name. So a loveless match is made and her fate is set. But then Eleanor meets her intended’s rakish younger brother. With his tawny hair, green eyes, and scandalous behavior, Lord Alexander Raybourn makes her want to be very bad indeed.
With his very honorable sibling too busy saving the world to woo Eleanor, Alexander is tasked with finding out her likes and dislikes for his elder brother. But the more time he spends with the secretly naughty Eleanor, helping her tick off all the things on her good list for being bad, the more he knows what they want, and need, is each other.

Alex and Eleanor star in Megan Frampton’s new Duke’s Daughters series. When her sister ran off with their dance instructor, and left the family to deal with the disgrace, Eleanor became the one tasked with setting the family’s image right. The first task is to marry-and marry well, there by setting the standard for the family and her other sisters. She is set up to marry Lord Bennett whose pedigree is right. She would get the title and he would get her dowry. But neither is happy about being forced into marriage.
Alexander is Bennett’s younger brother. When he and Eleanor meet-there are sparks! Under the guise of helping his older brother, he and Eleanor spend a great bit of time together. Knowing nothing can come of it because Eleanor is promised to Bennett, they partake in a lot of fun and share some rather heated moments! Eleanor wants to live life to the fullest with Alex, knowing when she does marry Bennett, she can look back and not think she missed out on so much. But can she give Alexander up when the time comes? Can he stand by and let his brother marry the woman he loves?? Can they find a way to make it work between them or will that make everything even worse??
I have read a lot of Megan Frampton’s books and I expect a fun filled time. I got some of that in this book, but not a lot of action. There was enough to keep me interested but it lulled quite a bit for me. I felt really bad for Eleanor because there was so much riding on this marriage. I’m glad she got to throw caution to the wind and let loose for awhile! Alex was such a nice man who truly looked up to his brother. Sad he felt like he was betraying him most of the time, but he was taken with Eleanor. Love makes you do things you may not normally do! Megan doesn’t let us down and gives us that HEA we are seeking!! I also enjoyed meeting all of the sisters and I am sure we are in for some treats with each of their stories to come!
