Review ❤️ Tall, Duke and Dangerous by Meghan Frampton

October 29, 2020


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…

Tall, Duke and Dangerous is the second book in Megan Frampton’s Hazards of Duke’s series. I very much enjoyed the first in this series Never Kiss a Duke, but this second entry in the series was just not my cuppa tea. Which makes me angry because I like Frampton. I think she’s an excellent writer, a great follow on social media, and an all-around badass lady.

There’s a lot of chatter in other reviews about what didn’t work in this book, so I won’t spend too much time on the things that didn’t work that have already been repeated several times over. What I will say is this book is another example of why you don’t always have to pair side characters for their own book. Neither of the two main characters felt fully formed and their love story was not as well crafted as I’ve seen Frampton is capable of.

The book got stuck focusing on the reasons why “not” that I never really understood the reasons “why”. These two both had horribly broken childhoods and I wanted them to get their ultimate HEA’s I just don’t think they belong together. And I have to wonder if Frampton even likes them because she ended the book so abruptly that I am curious if she bored of these two just as I did.
