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.… (mer)

What happens when an uptight, well organized, work-horse of a Duke meets his match? Edwina Chaltham, a widow with a young daughter, is left poor and with very few options when her husband dies. While her organizational and business skills didn't manage to impress her husband (even when she turned his business investments around), they were just the skills needed to apply for the position as the Duke's secretary. While we have no problems with women secretaries it was an outlandish idea at that time.
Edwina and the Duke get along well - she is perfect for the position. Edwina's daughter Gertrude also comes to live at the Duke's house and forms a relationship with the Duke's dog.
While keeping their work relationship strictly professional they both feel the tug of attraction finally giving in to a kiss. The longer she is there, the more the Duke begins to open up and become "more human" - asking, not telling, thanking people, considering other opinions.
The attraction is there but a regular woman who works for a living doesn't have a future with a duke who must marry in his class. The future seems hopeless and she eventually realizes that she could not continue to work for the Duke is he chose to bring home a wife.
I loved this story, the characters were quirky and interesting although not always lovable. It is great to see the Duke's transformation from stuffy to loving - allowing himself to love and be loved for the first time. ( )

ARC Review: Why Do Dukes Fall In Love? (Dukes Behaving Badly) by Megan Frampton

The heart is it's 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 was not afraid to show his sensitive side. Love is messy, it's not rocket science. Edwina and Michael's romance is a hotbed of sweetness sprinkled with spice.

Here comes another great story from Megan Frampton. As the ones before it, I liked the main characters and I had so much fun following their journey to their happily ever after.

Edwina is capable, strong and fun heroine that’s in dire straits after her husband dies. She needs a job in order to support herself and her child. Her hero is a handsome, lonesome and equally smart Duke who hires her as his secretary.

Their personalities are what makes this story fun and entertaining. I highly recommend it!

Edwina Cheltam and her daughter Gertrude were left in dire circumstances after her husband died and his useless younger brother was irresponsible with the money, despite the fact that she made the money, running his businesses for him; but because she was female, he took her responsibility away from her as soon as she made it a success. But now with no other choice, she is left to find employment, and she finds that with Michael, Duke of Hadlow.

Michael, Duke of Hadlow was a driven man, he wanted to be the best person he could be, the best Duke, the best representative in the House of Lords, the best at everything he put his extremely logical mind to. So it was the most logical more to hire the most logical person for his position as his secretary, and that person is Edwina Cheltam, even if it means that she brings her child with her, it’s a logical move after all. But Hadlow had underestimated the attraction between them, until he finally gives in and asks her for a kiss.

Everything seemed perfect between them; professional during the day and passionate at night, that is until Edwina's irresponsible brother in law rears his ugly head and takes Gertrude from the house when they are visiting factories. Once they collect Gertrude and bring her home; Hadlow gives Edwina a logical way to protect both her and her daughter from Cheltam again…Marry him! but when Edwina turns him down, Hadlow is astounded, but Edwina couldn't say yes, when he didn't give her the three words she need to hear, she decides to leave, but can Hadlow figure it out before he loses everything he cherishes?

I have never read any of the books in the Dukes Behaving Badly series, but that is soon to be rectified as I seriously couldn't put this book down! The authors writing and plot had me so enthralled in this story, that I couldn't bear to put the book down! I needed to know what happened, I will have to say that my only disappointment is that Mr. Cheltam didn't end up in debtors prison (yes I know I'm awful ;-) ). I loved that both Edwina and Hadlow are super logical people, which made the story smooth and streamlined, which made it a really nice to read a unfussy historical Romance.

I love both Edwina and Michael's characters, with their logical approach during the day and their steamy, sex talk in the bedroom. I loved the way that Michael's character respected Edwina's position, thoughts and decisions. They really are a perfect fit for each other and Gertrude just completes the little family perfectly. I will say that I absolutely loved Miss Clark and I'm hoping that we meet her character again, and maybe she can find her happily ever after too!

I give Why Do Dukes Fall In Love 5 stars!
