Review - Lady Be Reckless

Lady Be Reckless - Duke's Daughters #2
by Megan Frampton

What they say: 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?

Lady Olivia refuses to repeat her siblings’ scandalous mistakes. Instead, she will marry the lord rejected by her sister and help with his good works. When he resists, Olivia forms another plan: win his lordship’s admiration by helping his illegitimate best friend find a bride. How difficult can it be to transform the rakish Edward Wolcott into a gentleman? To ignore his virile good looks? To not kiss him in a moment of impulsive madness? Apparently, very difficult indeed.

Edward Wolcott promised his ailing father he would marry well, and it appears Lady Olivia wishes to assist him. The sparkling firebrand intends to smooth his way through London’s ballrooms, parlors, and eligible ladies, while all Edward’s thoughts suddenly revolve around bedrooms . . . and Lady Olivia herself.  Only a scoundrel would seduce the duke’s most dutiful daughter. And only a truly reckless lady would risk everything to be in his arms...

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review!

What I say: Lady Be Reckless is the second instalment in Megan Frampton's standalone Duke's Daughters historical series. It tells the cute and funny romance as it develops between Edward and Lady Olivia.

Olivia is singlehandedly determined to marry family friend Lord Carson. She wants to fulfil her duty and marry well,  but is not prepared for his reaction to her rather unconventional suggestion. In steps Carson's friend, the acknowledged but illegitimate Edward. 

Edward is extremely wealthy and handsome, he should be regarded as quite the catch, but as illegitimate he finds it difficult to be accepted by society. He wants to marry well and please his father.

Edward and Olivia decide to work together: he'll help her gain Carson's affection and she'll find him a society wife. Now I'm sure you can probably guess what happens in the end (it's not a spoiler), but I really liked their story. It was hilarious watching them try to deny the inevitable. It turns out they may have been played instead...

4 Stars in my Sky!
