“Readers will look forward to seeing whether Eleanor’s three sisters can find such suitably improper matches in future books. Adventures abound when a lady and her lord decide to be bad together.” (Kirkus)
From the Back Cover
Once upon a time, a duke had five daughters who never made a stir. They practiced their French, their pianoforte, and their dancing…until one ran off with the dancing instructor, and the rest were left to face the scandal.
Lady Eleanor, the Duke of Marymount’s eldest daughter, knows the burden is hers: she must marry well to restore the family name. So a loveless match is made and her fate is set. But then Eleanor meets her intended’s rakish younger brother. With his tawny hair, green eyes, and scandalous behavior, Lord Alexander Raybourn makes her want to be very bad indeed.
With his very honorable sibling too busy saving the world to woo Eleanor, Alexander is tasked with finding out her likes and dislikes for his elder brother. But the more time he spends with the secretly naughty Eleanor, helping her tick off all the things on her good list for being bad, the more he knows what they want, and need, is each other.

Today, Eleanor is in a bookshop searching for a book on ancient mythology when she accidentally bumps into a man reading an erotic book on Greek mythology, complete with pictures.
Lord Alexander (Alex) Raybourn enjoys looking at erotic books and is intrigued by the young woman who bumped into him. Alex lives with his older brother, Bennett, and his mother. The lady has been ill from what is probably depression. His father is never around as the man lives with his mistress and their children.
It turns out that Bennett is Lord Carson, the man Eleanor is supposed to marry. As the family funds are dwindling, Bennett’s father and Eleanor’s father have made a business arrangement for them to marry. Lord Carson is nice, but he is just average and does not excite Eleanor.
At a soiree, Bennett introduces Alex to Eleanor who is the woman from the bookstore. When Bennett proposes to Eleanor, she tells him she must think about it. So, as Bennett is so busy, he asks Alex to step in and find out what Eleanor is seeking in a husband and to simply woo her for him.
This is a cleverly written book with a hero and heroine who share a lot of interests. Of course, as the book has been written by Megan Frampton, you can expect some delightful laughs as well. Don’t miss it!
I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book.
I liked that Eleanor didn't just do what was expected of her. She is determined to take charge of her life and Alex is the man she wants. Alex gradually realizes that he is capable of so much more and he wants to prove to his father, brother and Eleanor that he is a grown man who knows what he wants and he wants his brother to he happy and Eleanor to be his.
Megan writing is smart, witty and her plots are intelligent and her characters are wonderful, sensual and likable. Alex and Eleanor are perfect for each other. There is no hemming and hawing, or misunderstandings that sometimes plague romance novels. They are both strong and honorable and know how they feel about each other. A very nice romance that you will enjoy
I so enjoy Megan Frampton's somewhat snarky humor and it is very evident in Lady Be Bad. The relationship between Eleanor and Alexander was cute, clever and touching. Each one had to find their personal strength to be able to make their families understand them.
A clever story with more depth than you might expect. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
