Five well-bred sisters, one sensational scandal. Now the Duke of Marymount's daughter Ida is about to find love in the most unconventional way . . . It was easy for society to overlook Lady Ida Howlett; they found her bookish, opinionated, and off the marriage mart. But little did they know that behind a calm exterior beats the heart of an adventuress, one who, determined to discover her runaway sister's whereabouts, steals a carriage and sets off on a daring mission. Then she discovers she's not alone! Bennett, Lord Carson, is inside, and he refuses to leave. Lord Carson's plans had always been to find a soft, gentle wife who would run his home and raise his children. Still, he makes a bargain with Ida--he won't desert her during her mad adventure. He'll make sure she's safe, and then find a suitable lady to fall in love with. But when rules (and garments) become discarded during this long, intimate journey, it's soon clear that this surprisingly daring lady is the woman he's needed all along.… (mais)

The Lady is Daring is book three in the Duke’s Daughters series by Megan Frampton. This is my first time reading Frampton and I enjoyed The Lady is Daring. Now I'm a person who reads series in order, I just prefer it that way, but I will say that this book stands well all by itself, but if you enjoy reading a series in order then I’d suggest you do that.

Ida Howlett is the third daughter of the Duke of Marymount, and while her sisters have made wonderful matches and pleased her parents, she’s not interested in marriage. She wants to live her own life, free to explore topics that take her interest, and if there’s a little adventure in the mix– all to the better.

Bennett, Lord Carson has successfully managed to avoid marital entanglements to this point, serving as ‘matchmaker’ for the first two of the sisters of the Duke of Marymount. Pressures from all sides, is stressing him out, and to add to that his father is determined that he marry a Duke’s daughter and bring a not so insignificant dowry into the family coffers.

I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I enjoyed this book more then I expected. I was glad we didn’t get a marriage due to statues or societies wants. I don’t think I would have liked this story if it turned out that way.

What I really liked was Ida our heroine. For the time period she is in, she’s interesting, intriguing, intelligent and for her to be that head strong, well it’s not acceptable, so I really enjoyed her. Some surprising circumstances have Bennett talking to Ida for the fist time with out societies pressures and several eyes on them. He starts to see her in a different light. I liked how Bennett and Ida ended up on an adventure together. Their interactions were cleverly plotted, and Ida’s realization that everything that made her ‘undesirable’ to most are what intrigues Bennett. The author wove in wonderful revelations to their personalities, opinions, along with some moments from both Bennett’s and Ida’s viewpoints, and the sheer excitement of the adventure all added to the story.

The Lady is Daring was a lovely novel to read. It’s witty, humorous, and entertaining.

Rated: 3.5 Stars

Lady Ida Howlett steals a carriage in order to run off and find her missing sister. Unfortunately she unwittingly kidnaps Lord Carson who has found the carriage a nice place to rest after a bit of drinking. Now Ida is the clever sister, bookish and opinionated and her parents have tried to marry Bennett to two of her sisters who fell in love with other men (Bennett's brother and friend). Ida isn't turning around, and Bennett feels obliged to continue the journey with her to try and keep her out of trouble... ( )

Please see all of my reviews on my blog at https://www.robinlovesreading.com.

Lady Ida Howlett is none too pleased to have her mother tell her that it is time for her to find a suitable mate and marry. She is hardly bride material. She is a bookworm, smart and far too opinionated to be a good choice for any man. Instead of worrying about that, there is something even more important for her to do. One day she steals away because she has always wanted to know the whereabouts of her older sister, Della. When she spots a carriage, she jumps in, fully intent on finding Della.

Bennett, Lord Carson, is both shocked and suddenly powerless. A woman jumps into the very same carriage he has just taken refuge in. Bennett thought he was just getting away from his problems, which includes marry well in order to deal with his father’s debts, if only for a little while. He won’t leave the carriage, she will not return home. What soon begins is a remarkable journey for both Ida and Bennett. Both need to marry, they know that. However, despite the most undeniable chemistry between them, after many discussions, they know that their journey will one day end and that they both will indeed marry. But, certainly not each other.

Ida is certain that she is in the adventure of a lifetime. But all her wit and intelligence have not prepared her for the incredibly intense way that Bennett makes her feel. Nothing she read in books prepared her for that. On the other hand, Bennett is fully aware of the effect that he and Ida have on each other. He does his best to remain a gentleman, fighting the fact that desire quickly moved to powerful feelings.

The Lady is Daring is a sexy and exciting story. There are some humorous moments as well. This is also a very warm read. This was definitely a nice read to wrap up a lazy Saturday afternoon.

This is the third book in The Duke’s Daughters series. I haven’t had the opportunity to read the first two stories. They are Lady Be Bad and Lady Be Reckless. The next book in the series is Never a Bride, which is due for release on April 30, 2019. It is obvious that Bennett was in both of the first two stories, so this series might better be enjoyed if read in order.

Many thanks to Avon and to Edelweiss for this ARC to review. This is my honest opinion. ( )

Historical roadtrip romance FTW!

I loved Ida and Bennett's story--finally, one of the duke's daughters actually falls in love with Bennett ;) Their banter was great--"hedgehog" and "leopard" LOL--and the forced proximity of their rescue mission felt spot-on for both of them (plus was a whole lot of fun...) Bennett being able to see and appreciate Ida for her Ida-ness was wonderful, and seeing the relationships that both of them had with their families (the families that count, anyway) was wonderful.

The reasons why they can't be together aren't the strongest--initially they makes sense, but the longer they cling to them the weaker they seem--but the way they overcame their obstacles was lovely, and that made all the difference.

You don't have to have read the other two books to appreciate this one (confession--still haven't read Eleanor's book!), but if you have, then the "finally falls in love with Bennett" comment will make a lot more sense...

Two more Howell sisters to go--can't wait!

Rating: 4 stars / A-

Megan Frampton is normally one of my favorite reads. I enjoyed this story, but it was mostly because of the humor of the ‘classification game’, etc. Otherwise, I thought it was a bit slow and I never came to feel involved with the heroine because I didn’t like her or relate to her. I liked the hero much better, but I found him to be more milquetoast than hero. I think the author was trying very hard to put modern standards in period dress without seeming to do so. My rating is a 3.5, but I have had a hard time deciding whether to round down to 3 or up to 4, so I guess I’ll decide once I have the review written.

Lady Ida Howlett has inattentive, uncaring and uninvolved parents. Ida is highly intelligent and loves learning – and she has no problem sharing her knowledge ad-nauseam with others. She is the youngest of five sisters. Two sisters are happily in love and married, two live at home and one, Della, has run away and they don’t know where she is. It is Ida’s dearest wish to locate Della and bring her back to London.

Bennett is the son and heir to a marquess, but he might as well be the marquess because he is the one who takes care of everything while his father is off living the high-life and spending money right and left. Bennett is a person who takes care of others – always – and before himself. Sometimes, he’d just like to chuck all of the responsibilities and run away – maybe have an adventure.

Something Bennett NEVER does is get drunk – but, he has gotten drunk tonight and has fallen asleep in someone’s carriage. The door was open and he was sleepy so he crawled in. Now, imagine his shock to awaken and find himself in a moving carriage. He repeatedly wraps on the carriage roof and finally, the carriage comes to a stop. Shock! He is several hours outside of London and the carriage is being driven by Lady Ida who has stolen the carriage and is on her way to find her sister. Since Bennett cannot let her travel alone, they set off together on an adventure. I think the book could have profited from a bit more ‘adventure’ during this part of the story, but it was a pretty staid trip.

So, as I said, I enjoyed the humor in the story but wasn’t impressed by much more. Here are some of the things that bothered me:
(1) This one really aggravated me after a while. The constant, incessant, repeated references to how smart Ida was. It was as if nobody else in the world had a brain – only Ida.
(2) Ida’s ‘brilliant’ solution for her NOT being ruined when they returned to London. It was absolutely bonkers. She had spent a week traveling totally alone with a man who was not her husband and bringing her sister back with her was going to keep her from being ruined. What?????
(3) The relationship between Ida and Bennett was just too modern. It just wouldn’t have happened that way in that time period. If you want that, then write a more modern story rather than writing a modern story and draping it in period dress.
(4) Bennett’s role in the House of Lords was mentioned a couple of times. Well – he was an heir and would NOT have been in the House of Lords. His father would be the one in the House of Lords. Doesn’t matter who is running the Marquisate, ONLY the title holder can serve in the House of Lords.
(5) Bennett’s solution to how he was going to cut back on his duties and his reaction to his father’s objections were ridiculous. Of course, his father could take over the running of the Marquisate – he is the Marquess after all. It doesn’t matter that Bennett has been running things and signing everything – he still isn’t the Marquess.
(6) The wedding vows. I’m certainly not an expert here, but I don’t believe that, in that time period, they would have been allowed the change the vows. I believe those were dictated by the Church of England.
(7) It was hard to get a feel for a timeline since few if any, dates or periods were given in the book. Even the epilogue didn’t tell us how long after the marriage it took place. Of course, I guess that is one way to eliminate timeline errors – just don’t have one.
(8) The Epilogue. I love epilogues and think every romance should have one. However, I didn’t see any point in having this epilogue at all other than to – maybe – set up the idea that Della will be the heroine in the next book.
