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 . . .
“An adventure-seeking writer and an oh-so-proper duke take a walk on the wild side with delectable results. This sexy, often funny early Victorian romance captivates from the start.” (Library Journal)
“Frampton cleverly turns one of the standard romance tropes-good girl meets bad boy-upside down, with wonderfully entertaining results. Readers who like delectably sexy and sharply witty historical romances are in for a rare treat.” (Booklist (starred review))
