Review: The Lady is Daring by Megan Frampton

Release Date: September 25, 2018
Publisher: Avon
Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book via Edelweiss for the purpose of an honest review.

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.

The Story in 4 Sentences or Less: Lady Ida Howlett is opinionated (uh oh), well read (gasp), and not interested in marriage, but despite her seemingly quiet personality she secretly longs for adventure. So she steals a carriage and sets off to find her runaway sister, except the carriage she stole isn’t empty. Lord Carson always wanted to find a quiet, gentle life and Lady Ida is definitely not that person but he agrees to help her find her sister then they’ll go their separate ways. But during the long journey, Lord Carson starts thinking that maybe Lady Ida is the right woman for him.

Like It? Hate it? Love it? Why? I liked The Lady is Daring well enough but it wasn’t all that memorable of a read. More like a one and done thing. Lady Ida is interesting, adventurous, and curious. I liked her determination to find out what happened to her sister. Accidentally kidnapping Lord Carson could have been a disaster but the adventure gave these two a chance to talk and get to know each other, something they never would have been able to do in “polite” society. Although these two spend a huge amount of time together talking, I felt that the romance wasn’t really there between them. It was headed in the right direction but never quite hit the mark for me. I enjoyed the adventure they went on though, at times it seemed a bit mad-cap but in an entertaining way. I’m actually interested in going back and reading the previous books and of course, the books that come after.
