The Lady is Daring - Review

The Lady is Daring - Duke's Daughter's #3
by Megan Frampton

What they say: Five well-bred sisters, one sensational scandal. Now the Duke of Marymount's daughter Ida is about to find love in the most unconventional way...

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.

Releases 25th Sept by Avon Books - Pre-order

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review!

What I say: I do love me some historical romance and Megan Frampton always knows how to bring on the swoon.

The Lady is Daring is the third instalment in Frampton's Dukes Daughters series but the books are standalone so you don't need to have read the first two.

Lady Ida Howlett goes against tradition and family expectation. She's considered too opinionated and not marriage material aka a bluestocking. When she takes it upon herself to track down her missing and disgraced sister Della, she knows this will damage her reputation beyond repair. She's headstrong and loyal so when she sets off on her rescue mission in a 'borrowed' carriage she's not expecting an infuriating stowaway...

Bennett aka Lord Carson is a busy man. He's running the duchy for his useless father and has no intention of ever treating anybody as badly as the duke treats his mother. He doesn't want to marry a whimpering, rich society heiress even to gain back some of the money his father has wasted. He finds himself on an unplanned adventure with Lady Ida and he can't help finding her bossy ways endearing.

Their developing relationship is really sweet. Neither wants to be a burden to the other but they are also not prepared to admit the truth.

Ida is probably my favourite of the Howlett girls so far because she's really funny. I loved her feminist approach and how she isn't prepared to be married off, or to become another society girl who is seen and not heard.

4 Stars in my Sky!
