The Duke’s Guide to Correct Behavior
Dukes Behaving Badly # 1

All of London knows the Duke of Rutherford has position and wealth. They also whisper that he’s dissolute, devilish, and determinedly unwed. So why, everyone is asking, has he hired a governess?
When Miss Lily Russell crosses the threshold of the Duke of Rutherford’s stylish townhouse, she knows she has come face to face with sensual danger. For this is no doting papa. Rather, his behavior is scandalous, and his reputation rightly earned. And his pursuit of her is nearly irresistible—but resist she must for the sake of her pupil.
As for the duke himself, it was bad enough when his unknown child landed on his doorstep. Now Lily, with her unassuming beauty, has aroused his most wicked fantasies—and, shockingly, his desire to change his wanton ways. He’s determined to become worthy of her, and so he asks for her help in correcting his behavior.
But Lily has a secret, one that, if it becomes known, could change everything . . .

I am new at reading Ms. Frampton's work, but will be looking for more of her books in the future. I enjoyed this book, it was fresh, a completely different spin from the historical romances I have read of late.  I get the feeling in the first few chapters that Marcus, the Duke, was trying to get comfortable in his new "ducal" shoes. There were a few moments in the beginning that seemed hard to believe, One minute he was a typical rakish rake- wild parties, missing article of clothing slung over statutes and then the moment he finds out he's a father ~viola~ he immediately purges all those bad habits out of his system and starts to become an upstanding citizen. This part seemed quick and unrealistic but Ms. Frampton made it work. 
I immediately fell in love with the Marcus, the Duke.  The plot could have gone so many different ways once he found his young daughter, Rose, at his doorstep. He took responsibility and he made every effort to make her feel welcomed and that she was wanted and needed.  The first order of business is to find a suitable governess, enter our heroine Lily. From the beginning Marcus and Lily are drawn to each other, immediately your sense "I feel complete when you are near", but they are from different sides of the track, which prevents them from acting upon them. The banter between the two main characters had me LOL. I was rooting for them to be a forever family, to recognize their love for each other and get their HEA. I am not going to spoil the read for you, you will need to find out on your own how this stories ends. Happy Reading!

I'm with the reviewer! I liked that Marcus did a turnabout and took Rose into his home, meaningfully intending to change his bad behaviors of the past. I'll have to get to know Lily a bit better before forming an opinion about her. But I know this much, Lily is a gutsy woman to answer the ad for a governess when it's not something she'd done before. I think this plot is going to be very interesting. :-)
