Megan Frampton returns with the second book in the Hazards of Dukes series, a series that made Sarah MacLean say "Make Megan Frampton your next read!"
He needs a bride…
Nash, the “dangerous” Duke of Malvern, has always bristled against the rules of English society. Hot tempered and fearful of becoming like his brutish late father, he lives a life of too much responsibility and too little joy. And although he’s vowed to never marry, a duke has a duty—and there’s only one way to get himself an heir and a spare. So Nash reluctantly takes a look around at society’s available young ladies to see who might be willing to put up with his one-word answers and frequent glowers.
She longs for love…
After the death of her father and wicked stepmother, Ana Maria goes from virtual servant to lady-in-training, and while society life has its benefits—gorgeous gowns!—its restrictive rules stifle her sprit. And when her independent actions put her in danger, her half-brother insists Nash teach her some self-defense. While most of London’s ladies find Nash intimidating, she only sees a man who needs introducing to all the joys life has to offer. So although officially they are coming together for fighting lessons, unofficially their physical contact begins to blur the line between friendship and begins to grown into something more…

Why Did I Listen To Tall, Duke, And Dangerous by Megan Frampton?

Tall, Duke And Dangerous is the second book by Megan Frampton that I have recently listened to — although from a different series of Frampton’s. I decided to give this a whirl to listen to as. it was on Libby. Also, I had an eARC that I had not yet gotten to. Plus, I like Frampton’s historical fictions. I like that her characters are imperfect and do have some issues. So, in an effort to get through my Netgalley queue, I listened to Tall, Duke And Dangerous with no regrets.

What’s The Story Here?

Tall, Duke And Dangerous is the second book in the Hazards Of Duke series but the first from the series I have listened to. It is about Nash the Duke of Malvern and Ana Maria who is newly a lady now that her stepmother has died. You see, Ana Maria was treated as a servant and now is like Cinderella in that she goes from servant status to lady status. Nash on the other hand is considered a dangerous duke. This is because his father was abusive and so there’s suspicion that he will repeat the family pattern — at least there is that fear on Nash’s end. Ana Maria and Nash cross paths when Ana Maria needs to learn self defense after an incident. Nash teaches her. As it turns out though,they have physical chemistry. Nash resists though, he wants to marry someone who he doesn’t care about in case he has his dad’s tendencies.

What Did I Think Of Tall, Duke, And Dangerous?

Megan Frampton’s Tall, Duke, And Dangerous is not a bad read. It is somewhat enjoyable for the most part. I’ll admit that I was not super invested. I think maybe that is because I had recently listened to a romance audiobook with a narrator that I had gelled with more than this one. However, I did like that Nash had his demons but that he ended up fighting them. Also, Ana Maria is humble and kind to those in a lower class than she is which is also something I really liked. To me, it is a big deal that Ana Maria knows how to do things for herself. It is quite admirable. And well, the chemistry between Ana Maria and Nash was fun to read.

How’s The Narration?

The audiobook is narrated by Jilly Bond. This is the second audiobook by Megan Frampton narrated by Jilly Bond that I’ve listened to. Overall, I would say this was an okay audiobook. I felt like it was not easy to listen to at a high speed. It was really hard to understand Bond at 2x and even at 1.75x speed. So, I had to slow it down to 1.25x and 1.5x speed. That’s fine and all, just I was sort of in a hurry. Still, I do plan to go back and listen to the first book in the Hazards of Duke series regardless.
