Includes an excerpt from Gentleman Seeks Bride.
Summary, etc.:
"Thaddeus, the new Duke of Hasford, holds his new title reluctantly, but his sense of duty is strong. Task number one: find a wife and secure an heir. He thinks he's found the perfect choice in Lady Jane Capel--until her sister Lavinia bursts onto the scene. Vivacious, rebellious, and strikingly beautiful, Lavinia is determined to keep him away from her shy, sweet sister. And she's also determined not to think so much about his broad chest and strong thighs. When Lady Lavinia and Thaddeus end up in the most compromising position, witnessed by Lavinia's mother and nearly everyone at a party, they're forced to get married to protect their reputations. With no love between them, but with an heir to conceive, they strike a bargain in bed. Only Lavinia demands passion, and Thaddeus complies, with both of them realizing this marriage of convenience may turn into much more..."--Page 4 of cover.

Library Journal

When he unexpectedly inherits a title, Thaddeus, Duke of Hasford, decides he should take a wife--someone as serious and no-nonsense as himself. Lady Jane Capel seems like the type of demure woman he should marry, but her sensual, free-spirited sister Lavinia inexplicably stirs his lust. Lavinia, who secretly writes lurid romances, is taken with the handsome, dour duke. In an effort to stop Thaddeus from marrying her sister, who is in love with someone else, Lavinia accidentally ends up in a compromising situation with him. Forced to wed, Thaddeus and Lavinia agree to be emotionally distant and separate once Lavinia becomes pregnant with an heir. Despite enjoying a passionate marriage bed, neither can admit that they may want more from each other. VERDICT The protagonists can be annoyingly stubborn (an honest conversation would easily clear up the central conflict), but fans of Frampton and her detail-rich historicals will find themselves pleasantly transported.--Kathryn Howe, Saint John Free P.L., NB

A Wicked Bargain for the Duke : A Hazards of Dukes Novel

Booklist


From Booklist, Copyright (c) American Library Association. Used with permission.

Thaddeus Dutton, formerly a soldier in her majesty's army and now duke of Hasford, has never met a checklist he didn't love. At the top of Thaddeus' current to-do list is to find a suitable wife, and he thinks he has discovered the perfect candidate, sweet, shy Jane Capel. As the pseudonymous author Percy Wittlesford, Lavinia Capel also knows the value of good checklists, and rising to the top of her current to-do list is to find a way to keep Thaddeus Dutton from marrying her sister Jane, who is hopelessly in love with another man. However, Lavinia's plans to play third wheel between Thaddeus and Jane end up working so well that Lavinia unexpectedly finds herself engaged to the duke! In the latest in her Hazards of Dukes series, Frampton (Never Kiss a Duke, 2020) successfully merges her madly original storytelling skills and penchant for sizzlingly sensual love scenes with her delightfully tongue-in-cheek sense of humor to create a fabulously fun love story.
