The duke’s five daughters have beauty, breeding, and impeccable reputations. Or at least, they did. Now that two have chosen to follow their hearts, can the others be far behind?
It was easy for society to overlook Lady Ida Howlett; they found her bookish, opinionated, and off the marriage mart. But little did they know that behind a calm exterior beats the heart of an adventuress, one who, determined to discover her runaway sister’s whereabouts, steals a carriage and sets off on a daring mission. Then she discovers she’s not alone! Bennett, Lord Carson, is inside, and he refuses to leave.
Lord Carson’s plans had always been to find a soft, gentle wife who would run his home and raise his children. Still, he makes a bargain with Ida—he won’t desert her during her mad adventure. He’ll make sure she’s safe, and then find a suitable lady to fall in love with. But when rules (and garments) become discarded during this long, intimate journey, it’s soon clear that this surprisingly daring lady is the woman he’s needed all along.
Read An Excerpt
DUKE’S DAUGHTERS: LADY IS DARING by Megan FramptonFrom Chapter Seven
“This room is for the young lady,” Mrs. Hastings said, opening the second door on the right-hand side.
Ida looked inside, almost unable to process what she was viewing as the tumult of emotions swirled inside her brain. She shook her head, trying to clear the fog of whatever it was she was feeling.
He’d held her hand. And she had held his.
Her skin tingled where they’d touched.
And he’d joked with her. In Latin. No wonder she was all tingly.
The room was small, but tidy, the bed in the center made up with a floral counterpane. There was a table beside the bed, a screen in the corner, and a chair in front of one of the two windows.
“It’s not much, but it’s quiet,” the innkeeper said. “I’ll send someone up to help you with your gown, since your own servant hasn’t arrived yet. Do you expect them tonight, my lord?” she said, twisting to look at Bennett.
“Likely not. I told them to find lodgings elsewhere if they could not get here by this evening.”
“Ah, then you’ll be needing my Mary’s help. She’s Eustace’s younger sister, and she’s been helping out in the inn.”
“That would be excellent. Thank you for thinking of it,” Ida replied. She drew a coin from her purse and began to hold it to the innkeeper, who waved it aside.
“You’ll pay me tomorrow morning for the food and rooms. You can save that for Mary, if she serves well enough. And you’ll let me know if she doesn’t.”
The innkeeper stepped back out into the hallway. “I’ll show you your room, my lord, and then wish you and your sister good-night. It’s just two doors away,” she continued, gesturing to a door on the opposite side. “If you need anything in the night.”
He would be leaving her. Alone.
“Good night, Ida,” Bennett said. He stepped forward and gazed down at her face, an intense expression on his face.
“Good night,” she replied abruptly, shutting the door as she spoke.
The ladies most definitely take the cake and eat it too. In Megan Frampton 's latest Historical Romance offering. Most aptly titled The Lady Is Daring.
Staring one staunchly forthright and twice as erudite Lady Ida Howlett. A young woman seemingly doomed for the shelf. Simply for being "too smart for her own good".
For it can't be said that her failure to make the trip to the alter can be chalked up to anything else.
Certainly not a lack of trying on the part of her parents.
So desperate now to see their daughter wed, that they are on the verge of marrying her off to any eligible man with a title and a pulse.
But a chance to bring home her wayward sister, Della, gives Ida just the impetus she needs to set of on the adventure of a lifetime.
With just one little hitch.
A stow away by the name of Lord Bennett Carson.
So much for "best laid plans".
Or is it?
This book is truly a case of " I had no idea what I was looking for until I found you. "
Both in the case of Ida and Bennett.
There is the usual delightful banter and the well timed discovery of mutual interests and attraction.
Exasperated by their growing need to inhabit the same space as the lodging choices they encounter on their trip become dodgier with each subsequent stop.
But the thing that makes this read stand out by the biggest lead. The author's very fem-dom friendly approach to the sex in this book.
Ida may not know much in the ways of "what goes on between the sexes". But it becomes quite clear quite quickly. That she knows that she wants full control of both her pleasure and her man.
A fact that Bennett is all too willing to live with.
This is a very sweet and sexy romance. Full of adventure, family and love.
