Good morning/afternoon/evening all! I hope you are enjoying this short month and are preparing for Spring. I am so not ready for Spring cleaning. Tell me, have any of you read Megan Frampton before?
She likes the color black, gin, dark-haired British men, and huge earrings, not in that order.
She lives in Brooklyn, NY, with her husband and son.

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.
Matthew, the Earl of Selkirk is in need of a housekeeper and he expects a boring, older woman who will give him no trouble while he is in London. What he gets is a young, attractive woman who offers her opinion whether he wants it or not… So much for no trouble.
Annabelle is the co-owner of Quality Employment Agency but isn’t exactly a housekeeper, but desperate times call for desperate measures and since she doesn’t want to lose out on having the Earl of Selkirk as a client, she accepts the job herself. She just didn’t expect the earl to be so attractive.
Quirky and fun, When Good Earls Go Bad is perfect for readers who want a quick, light hearted read to pass a few hours.
In the beginning I didn’t think these Matthew and Annabelle were a good match, they were so different and came from different social classes. I genuinely liked Matthew, probably because I had a lot in common with him. He was a bit awkward at times and because he was such a logical thinker, had a little trouble being a normal human being. Meanwhile Annabelle is chatty, a bit scatter brained but quite daring. She didn’t completely grow on me to be honest, I found her a bit annoying at times and while author Megan Frampton’s style was a bit different than what I was used to, I could have done without so much internal dialogue from Annabelle.
All and all though, When Good Earls Go Bad was an upbeat and interesting way for me to be introduced to an author that I had heard about but hadn’t had a chance to read.
Final Verdict: Minus the internal dialogue, When Good Earls Go Bad was enjoyable and probably won't be the last time I read this author.
