One-Eyed Dukes are Wild is the 3rd book in Megan Frampton's Dukes Behaving Badly series, and yet it's the 1st in the series I've read. That didn't take away from my enjoyment of the story as I was able to follow along, never feeling like I'd missed something for having not read the previous books. And though it took a bit for the story to really grab hold, once it did I was thoroughly captivated!I have to say this right up front - Margaret is one of the most refreshing leading ladies I've read i [...]
Steam level was extremely low. Writing was boring at best, and bad at worst. Dialogue was awkward. The plot was poorly executed, and there was no real conflict. The heroine was too anachronistic; she was way too independent and carefree (ex: ordering a duke around in public, intervening in a marital argument between people not related to her, going to the duke's house at night without any companion, letting a man take liberties with her without demanding marriage). The hero was nice and sweet, b [...]
This was my second attempt with Frampton's work and I was much more pleased with the result. Frampton's has a subtle sense of humor, which I greatly enjoyed here.Lady Margaret has been skating on the edge of society ever since she refused to marry a man chosen by her parents. As a result, she has given up trying to be imminently proper and instead embraced art, her work for abused women, and her love of richly colored clothes.The Duke of Lasham is an exceedingly proper duke, heavily burdened wit [...]
Another great offering - romantic, sexy, sweet. This series and Megan Frampton are quickly becoming one of my favorites - recommend for everyone in need of a light, fun, witty regency escape.
This review was originally posted on Addicted To RomanceOne Eyed Dukes Are Wild is the latest release of Megan Frampton's series Dukes Behaving Badly. I will admit I was super excited to pick this one, because I had enjoyed the previous books so well. This one opens up with a daring heroine and a reserved duke. They both have a instant attraction to one another, however love is never simple or easy. The story is well written and at first I enjoyed the verbal interaction sbetween the characters a [...]
Originally posted at SmexyBooks-smexybooks/2016/01/review-Favorite Quote: “Men. She’d be better off just making the fictional men in her life do what she wanted, since she thus far had little luck with the real ones.”Lady Margaret Sawford has lived her life on her own terms since she refused to be forced into marriage by her parents and they disowned her. Using her skills at cards and writing serial romances, Margaret not only manages her own household but also helps those who are far less [...]
It took me but a few paragraphs to remind me why I love Megan Frampton’s books so much! Lady Margaret Sawford is firmly on the shelf, and she assumes her slightly scandalous reputation with flair. Mind you, the scandals are not as bad as it they could be, but still she did refuse to marry the despicable Lord Collingwood, and she does write a – very successful – newspaper serial. Because her parents shunned her after the Collingwood debacle, she put her unusual talent to good use: she is ex [...]
If you are looking for a romance with a repressed and scarred hero, learning to come out of his shell, I think you would enjoy this story. The Duke of Lasham is awkward and unhappy and he has no idea who is really is inside. He only knows that as a duke, he has a responsibility to be proper, to do the right thing, as befits his station. Then he meets a bold and fiery lady who turns his world upside down when she makes him realize there is another way to live.Lady Margaret thumbs her nose at conv [...]
Reviewed @ Confessions From Romaholics Review copy kindly provided by publisher in exchange for a honest reviewreviewThe catchy title and series name drew me to this book despite knowing next to nothing about the author or the book for that matter.

4 StarsOne-Eyed Dukes Are Wild is a fun and romantic romp through Victorian England with two characters that couldn't be more opposite. Lady Margaret caused enough of a scandal last Season that she was disinherited by her reputation-obsessed parents and now survives thanks to her writing and her married sister's kindness. She is always looking for the next bit of entertainment and thinks she finds it when she spots a handsome gentleman with an eye patch. Unfortunately, her expectations are dashe [...]
4.5 Stars. I so enjoyed this sweet story of two people that shouldn't fit together according to their temperaments and stations in life. Margaret is a somewhat disgraced sister of a duchess, card shark, and crusader for downtrodden women. She is out-spoken and direct, but loving. The Duke of Lasham forbidding in appearance due to his missing eye and withdrawn behavior. He is ultra-responsible and probably shy. Their initial attraction slowly blossoms as Margaret helps Lash connect with his emoti [...]
This wonderful humorous historical romance is the story of the Duke of Lasham (whose first name we don’t even know until much later in the story, as he goes by Lasham, or ‘Your Grace’) and Lady Margaret. They are as opposite as can be. Lasham is a staid, upstanding, respectable (i.e boring) gentleman. He always does what is right and what is expected of him. He had the misfortune of losing an eye, and wears an eye-patch that ensures he can’t go anywhere without notice. When Lady Margaret [...]
3/3.5 Stars | Hot SteamOne look at that smoking hot piratical duke on the cover of ONE-EYED DUKES ARE WILD, and I leapt at the chance to read Margaret and Lasham’s fun, seductive and unexpected story! Accustomed to cocksure, larger-than-life and overtly sexual alpha-male heroes commanding their way around town and their willing women, it was delightful to read a hero so entirely opposite from the norm. Handsome, smart and big-hearted, Lasham is a very likable character who sympathetically stru [...]
Margaret is disowned by her parents when she refuses to marry Collingwood. They are further outraged that she is "The Lady of Mystery" writer of a popular serial in one of the penny papers. They insist that her newly married sister (to Collingwood's brother)cut her off as well.Margaret must rely on her wits and ultimately the affection of her sister to keep her household together. She derives income from her writing and her card playing. She uses her winnings to support herself, her servants and [...]
Margaret Sawford is an original and a free spirit. No one is gonna dictate her how to live her life, so when her parents announced her she was to marry Lord Covington, she simply ran away from home and became quite the talk of the ton, not only because such an independent nature for a woman is unheard of but she also revealed she's A lady of Mystery, the writer behind a popular serial. It doesn't matter what people think, Margaret is perfectly capable to survive on her own. The first time she se [...]
Charming and engaging. A pleasure.
I had a lot of fun reading this book, the hero is prim and proper and rarely does anything out of his comfort zone and the heroine is ready to show him a different side of life. Opposites attract is one of my favorite tropes and Ms. Frampton has given us a delightful story.The Duke of Lasham is a serious man, he was raised to be regal and duke-like in every situation, although to look at him, you may think he is wild and dangerous with is eye patch and handsome looks. When he first sees Lady Mar [...]
This the story of a scandalous young lady and a very staid and proper Duke.We met Margaret in "Put Up Your Duke" , the younger sister of the heroine Isabella. As this book opens, Margaret has caused a Scandal and is disowned by her parents and living on her own with a maid. She is writing fiction for a publication, and helping woman less fortunate than herself. Her life is full and she is happy, enter the Duke. The Duke of Lasham is everything a Duke should be. Responsible, well mannered, rich a [...]
Full Review at: What's Beyond Forks?One-Eyed Dukes are Wild is the third book in the Dukes Behaving Badly series by Megan Frampton. This book is a stand alone story. Margaret is a little spit fire, rebel with a heart. I think she's the kind of girl everyone one wants to be. Her internal monologue alone was fantastic and fun. I think that's what I liked best about this story. I just loved her character. Equally lovable was the Duke of Lasham for completely opposite reasons. He's very much a play [...]
The ARC of One-Eyed Dukes are Wild by Megan Frampton was kindly provided to me through for review. The creation of Duke of Lasham went quite well, so pleasant, unique character, adorable (which won’t match with the title of book!). And his match Lady Margaret as well, fiery spirited, independent and risky. Even second characters like Annie who couldn’t hold her tongue and Jamie with all teasing Lasham were very well developed. I can say all characters complimented each other.The plot was ni [...]
With this cover , title ,characters and events in this book ,I should have given it 5 stars but I couldn't. For one reason ,it had so much inner talk that some times it felt repeatable. The fresh scent in it that The duke here isn't the typical kind we have in historical romance , he is not confident .(Perhaps he should start wearing a bonnet after all.) The heroine too isn't the typical kind , she is a walking scandel .At the end , it is a good read .
Pub date: Dec 2015This is one of my favorite romances in a while! Margaret is such a wonderful character--I want to be like her when I grow up! Her confidence, her goodness, and most especially her humor, even when she's talking to herself, is super charming and entertaining. And her dragon story interspersed with each chapter had me rolling! Her piratical duke, Lash, is endearing with his vulnerability. Their honesty with each other was refreshing as well. So, home run, Ms Frampton!!!
Plutôt 3,75/5.J'ai bien aimé leur relation, et le côté associal du duc. La fin aurait mérité être un peu plus poussée, y ajouter un peu plus de passion.Je n'avais pas réussi à lire le tome 1, mais du coup, je tenterai peut être le tome 2.
Who knew I would love shy heroes so much??
I’ve read this series from the beginning, and think that this book, One Eyed Dukes Are Wild, is my favorite: I adored Lash and Margaret, as two people who approached their lives and positions in quite different ways, even as they have framed those approaches into rather inflexible boxes. Margaret is the second daughter, always feeling overlooked by her parents until her usefulness as a marriageable young woman becomes a tool for social enhancement. Unwilling to be bartered and fobbed off, Marg [...]

This series has exceed my expectations over the last year. Each installment has been entertaining, with endearing heroines and engaging heroes. I don't think I have rated any of them less than 4 stars, and I know one or two got 5 stars. So I highly recommend this series to historical romance fans. Megan Frampton is on my auto-buy list (for those times I am not lucky enough to snag an advanced readers' copy).As you know from the earlier books, the series revolves around women who have been the su [...]

Lady Margaret is on the shelf, on her own, and she likes it that way. She plays cards better than any woman I've read about in historical romances, is far more outspoken than some young miss looking to rebel against her parents, rescues women in distress, and doesn't give one inkling about propriety. After all, it never did anything for her except almost condemn her to a lifelong commitment to a man she didn't care to marry. Almost.The Duke of Lasham is everything Margaret thumbs her nose at. He [...]
I won this book through a giveaway and I was quite delighted to do so! I can't abide reading a series out of order, though, so I started at the beginning and have worked my way up to this one. It has been fun getting to read each of the novels and novellas and each of them could do quite well as stand alone books.As for this one in particular, I quite liked it. Lady Margaret was my favorite character in Put Up Your Duke, book 2 in the series. While some might call her free thinking and honest n [...]
