When Good Earls Go Bad by Megan Frampton – Review, Book Tour and Giveaway



Megan Frampton’s Dukes Behaving Badly series is back, though this time it’s an earl who’s meeting his match in this delightfully fun and sexy novella!

What’s a lovely young woman doing asleep in his bed? Matthew, Earl of Selkirk, is shocked to discover it’s his new housekeeper! She’s a far cry from the gray-haired woman he expected. Matthew is no fan of surprises, and Annabelle Tyne is pure temptation. Perhaps he shouldn’t have had her hired sight unseen.

Annabelle, co-owner of the Quality Employment Agency, is no housekeeper, but she wasn’t about to lose a potential client simply because there was no one to fit the bill. Imagine her shock when the Earl arrives at his London townhome and she’s awoken in the night by the most attractive man she’s ever seen.

Matthew is a man who lives life by the rules, but sometimes rules are made to be broken…and being bad can be very, very good.

My Thoughts:

Annabelle Tyne is a partner in an employment agency which is trying to make its mark, and provide services to members of the ton.  A gentleman comes in, stating that he needs a housekeeper NOW.  There is no one available, but when the gentleman mentions that this is for an earl, Annabelle decides to take on the task herself.

Matthew, the Earl of Selkirk, is Scottish, and is in England for a month to help his uncle with a business decision.  He is renting a home, and doesn’t need much, but he is adamant about wanting a housekeeper.   He and Annabelle have an interesting first meeting when he arrives sooner than expected, and seeks out the first bed that looks ready to be inhabited.  It just so happens to be Annabelle’s , and she happens to be in it.

Matthew and Annabelle are polar opposites.  He is serious, somewhat dour, and rarely smiles.  Annabelle is sunshine and butterflies and a chatterbox.  At first, I found her to be a little annoying, but then I realized that she was truly a happy person who was full of the joy of just living.  Though we don’t get all the intimate details, Annabelle does have a past, but she’s not letting it bring her down.  The earl, on the other hand, has very little experience.

This unlikely pair is immediately attracted to each other, and their close proximity soon leads to intimacy. I loved them together – she makes him smile, and he makes her feel cherished.  Their time together is very limited, so what can they do when they have fallen in love?  They are not only from different stations in life, but from different countries.  This short novella had me smiling from beginning to end, on the way to their happy ever after, and I recommend it for a warm, sexy and feel-good read.

  1. I have no particular hero that has really snagged my attention that I remember names. I read so many books of all kinds and enjoy them as I read the book but mostly don’t really fall in love with the characters. The only one I really remember is Roark in JD Robbs In Death series and those aren’t historical romances.
