    One thought on “Put Up Your Duke”

    1. Oh, what a fun story! By the blurb I wasn't sure what to expect, but Nicholas and Isabella won me over! This second book in the Duke's Behaving Badly series is even better than the first. Lots of romance, passion, and humor made this unputdownable, and has earned Ms. Frampton a spot on my "must read" authors shelf!An ARC was provided by Avon Books. In appreciation I'm giving them an honest review. Short, but honest!

    2. This review was originally posted on Addicted To RomanceSummary Nicholas, has just learned that he has become the new Duke of Gage, and as such he has an obligation to marry the beautiful Isabella Sawford. Nicholas has no clue how to be a Duke, he knows women and box ring fighting, but how to handle a seemingly perfect wife, and dealing with tenants and the house of Lords are so out of his comfort zone. He has no idea where he is going but he knows one thing, that his gracious wife is the key. H [...]

    3. I've given this a B+ at AAR, so 4.5 stars.Although this is part of Ms Frampton’s current Dukes Behaving Badly series, Put Up Your Duke doesn’t seem to involve characters from previous books and can easily be read as a standalone. I was between books when the offer of a review copy reached me, and as I’m pretty much unable to resist any story in which the protagonists are forced into a marriage of convenience, it solved the problem of my temporary booklessness and did it in a most enjoyable [...]

    4. Review posted on Got Fiction?I’ve been sitting on this review for months, because I really like the author. But I didn’t love this book.This is a DNF for me. All the reviews say that the heroine finds herself in this book, and that’s great, but I’m not invested enough in her to care. I don’t like who she is now. The hero is…sort of a cliche rake who will reform.Quick summary-Isabelle is engaged to the Duke of Gage. Her parents have brought her up to be a duchess. Her entire life is [...]

    5. This review was originally posted on Cocktails and BooksI liked the premise of this one (man inherits a title he didn't know he could get and a wife he wasn't sure he wanted). I liked how Isabella and Nicholas came together. But I wanted more heat between both the characters.Nicholas and Isabella were forced into a marriage that neither of them really wanted. But you could tell from each interaction the two had, the potential for an excellent match was at handspite the circumstances that got the [...]

    6. oviousely I have not much luck with my books at the moment. Or my mood is so different from that of my fellow reviewers, whom I trust normally implicitly.but this book was although quite nice and a good storyy, I had troubles with Isabella. I do understand where she comes from but for me her change is not really done as well as I would have hoped fore comes across as icy or childish and I really have a hard time to understand why Nicholas should fall in love with her what I liked was Nicholas an [...]

    7. Outstanding fun! I can't believe that this was my first Megan Frampton - her style is witty and charming, the plot is focused all on the romance - there are hardly any distractions from it, which is unusual and highly appreciated. Also, this is very much on the steamy side of the genre. Loved it!

    8. 3.5 stars--ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date June 30, 2015He was once happily bedding and boxing, but in the newest Duke's Behaving Badly novel, Nicholas Smithfield has inherited a title and a bride . . .To keep his estate afloat, the new Duke of Gage must honor an agreement to marry Lady Isabella Sawford. Stunningly beautiful, utterly tempting, she's also a bag of wedding night nerves, so Nicholas decides to wait to do his duty—even if it means heading to the boxing saloon every day to punch away [...]

    9. 4.5 A charming romance with Nicolas coming into a Dukedom and inheriting Isabella as his fiance in the process. Fun, very romantic, and almost fairy tale-like, the pair have to figure each other out and join ranks to solidify their position. I'm hoping that Margaret is a next featured character, since I quite liked her spirit. Maybe with Griff? Ms Frampton is now solidly on my auto read list.

    10. *I received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.* I love a good marriage of convenience story. Something about a couple marrying, and THEN falling in love is just very appealing to me. Therefore, when I saw that in this book, the hero inherits not only a title but a bride, I was definitely sold on reading it. Luckily for me, I was not disappointed. The two main characters, Nicholas and Isabella, were very likable. Nicholas started out as a typical rake, but what was inte [...]

    11. 2.5 starsI don't even know it was okay. I felt like I didn't know the characters. All I knew was that I didn't like the heroine and the hero was too patient.Our hero, Nicholas, at first the beginning was shakey. I'm all for Rakes. I love them. But when they start of the first page of the book in bed with not one but 3 women. I can't help but feel apprehension to his sudden okay-ness with being faithful. Honestly I started to warm up to him, but what I didn't understand was his liking other than [...]

    12. An awesome historical romance that I savored. Nicholas Smithfield and Isabella Sawford seem to be so different and not at all a couple that you expect to be together. They find themselves in a weird position that’s anything but typical.One of the things that I found that I really enjoyed about both Nicholas and Isabella is that they are both in a situation that is not of their making, but other people’s doing. He never expected for a dukedom to come his ways, but because of some not so great [...]

    13. Review Originally Posted at Ramblings From This ChickramblingsfromthischickspoReading Put Up Your Duke by Megan Frampton was like riding a roller coaster for me. The book would build and build and I would be more and more into it. Then the story would tumble back towards the ground with just a paragraph. I’m not one who enjoys reading the “F” word when describing sex. I know many other readers don’t mind it, but it takes away from the romance for me. So if you don’t mind it, this book [...]

    14. This delightful historical romance is the story of Nicholas and Isabella. When Nicholas inherits a dukedom through a fluke of incorrect ancestral paperwork, he also gains Isabella, betrothed to the previous gentleman who held the title, and now, his to marry. With her parents threatening to cause him problems if he reneges on the deal, he reluctantly agrees. But Isabella is more than just the perfect duchess and as he gets to know her, she also surprises herself with the realization that with Ni [...]

    15. Nicolas Smithfield unexpectedly inherits a Dukedom and a Bride. He wasn't interested in marriage but sees no way out of the situation. He has to complete the betrothal of the former Duke because money was borrowed from the fiancée's family. Isabella Sawford has been raised to be the perfect duchess. She never disobeyed her parents, always stayed on the straight and narrow, and never had a chance to be who she actually is. She didn't want to be engaged to the Duke of Gage-he was a bastard, but a [...]

    16. *I received this title from the publisher for the purpose of an honest review.*I have to say this story starts with a new "idea" a Duke who takes the place of "the duke who was" due to some legal issues, in other words the man who thinks he's a Duke learns he's not and a man who never dreamed to be a Duke learns he is. There could be much more that side of the story but PUT UP YOUR DUKE focuses more on the "romance" between Nicholas and Isabella. For me that works. I loved watching these two dea [...]

    17. I received an ARC of this book from Tasty Book Tours in exchange for an honest review and as part of the book's blog tour promotions.Every now and then, I always find pleasure in reading a historical romance. It's not my usual genre of choice, but if it's with a really good author, then I don't hesitate. Megan Frampton is one of those authors in this genre that many people already know. Her brand of historical romance is entertaining and substantial.Put Up Your Duke features a hero and a heroine [...]

    18. I’m so in love with Megan Frampton’s writing.Our heroine, Isabella, always so proper with her “traditional courtship” and engagement for the time being. Her family is a big part of the story: she fears reprehension from her – strict – parents, and her sister and – only – friend is the only person she can confide in.Nicholas on the other hand, has to deal with a new title, home and a wife! He uses all his sexual frustration to practicer some boxing, as the author puts as a “prev [...]

    19. "Put Up Your Duke" by Megan Frampton is the story of Nicholas, the newly appointed Duke of Gage, and Isabella, his new bride. This starts as basically a marriage of convenience and, as these stories, go, grows to much more. I really enjoyed both characters. Nicholas is a rake - he's a boxer and a lover of women. Despite that, I really liked him. Although he believed himself to be only skilled in two areas - the boxing ring and the bedroom, he is such a terrific husband and lover. He treats Isabe [...]

    20. I liked this book very much. I read and enjoyed the first book in this series but I think this one was better. I did not feel as if I'd read this same plot over and over. The heroine's mother has made her a very proper lady so that she can land a duke. When her fiancee, a duke, is discovered to have wrongly inherited, her parents "force" the new duke to uphold the contract. That he agrees turns out to be lucky for them both. His brother and her sister are interesting secondary characters. You'll [...]

    21. Charming. I always appreciate when a romance has the couple fall in love after they marry, and when the man is pursuing the woman. Here we have both!

    22. 2.5 starsI was really hoping for more with this one.I was kind of disappointed with the lack of plot actually. On the one hand, I did enjoy the focus being on their relationship, however I think the lack of other going-ons meant that it was so easy to find flaws in the development of feeling. I just didn't feel connected or felt like all the emotions were very believable. I think if there had been more of a plot, I would have been able to see them developing feelings rather than just being told [...]

    23. The premise of this book hooked me straight away. I love the idea of a heroine discovering who she is after a life of living to please her parents and society. I also adore a hero who is patient, gentle, and understanding towards the woman he cares about (though make no mistakes, he's still very strong and passionate). And I enjoyed how slowly the romance unfolded between them as they got to know each other.However, there were a few missteps. The book lacked any strong sense of conflict, and I f [...]

    24. Isabella Sawford’s entire life has been spent preparing to be a perfect wife and duchess. But when she marries a man, Nicholas Smithfield, who encourages her to be herself, she realizes that she doesn’t know who that person is. I really enjoyed the blossoming romance between these two characters, but my favorite part of the novel was watching Isabella push her own limits, start to make her own choices, and accept that she’s allowed to make mistakes. Isabella’s lived under her mother’s [...]

    25. Another lovely offering from Megan Frampton!Perfectly groomed Isabella has accepted the fact that she is to marry the Duke of Gage. It will be a typical society wedding in which she will gain an impressive title while her husband to be will have his debts settled. Love isn't up for consideration since such a sentiment won't be playing a part in the negotiations. But then the unthinkable happens! It is discovered that the Duke of Gage isn't really the Duke of Gage at all but that the title belong [...]

    26. I received this book for free from the Publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. MY THOUGHTS First off, I would like to apologize for scheduling my post without my review. I mistakenly opened a new post for this tour and that was where my review went (face palm). Very embarrassing, yeah?Put Up Your Duke is an interesting story. Picture a rakish boxer who unexpectedly became a Duke and who is forced to hono [...]

    27. This was a delight to read; I love how the hero and the heroine’s relationship grew closer each day as Nicholas takes the time to woo his bride. And I also thought the author’s voice was enjoyable as she infuses humor and romance into the story.Isabella is destine to become a duchess; she has been taught all her life the intricacies of the position and her parents feel she will fulfill her calling with dignity. She is supposed to marry theDuke of Gage, and although she is hopeful of a small [...]

    28. I almost quit this story at the beginning. So glad I didn't.Nicholas enjoyed two things: sex and boxing. But while he always found satisfaction in the ring, he almost always came up short in bed. Not because he couldn't perform. Not because he couldn't satisfy his partner(s). Not because he couldn't find his own satisfaction. Oddly enough, it was because he wondered if the woman he was with would make him feel sex was more than physical, if she would make him feel a connection that was deeper th [...]
