The Duke’s Guide to Correct BehaviorDukes Behaving Badly # 1
By: Megan Frampton
Releasing November 25th, 2014
All of London knows the Duke of Rutherford has position and wealth. They also whisper that he’s dissolute, devilish, and determinedly unwed. So why, everyone is asking, has he hired a governess?
When Miss Lily Russell crosses the threshold of the Duke of Rutherford’s stylish townhouse, she knows she has come face to face with sensual danger. For this is no doting papa. Rather, his behavior is scandalous, and his reputation rightly earned. And his pursuit of her is nearly irresistible—but resist she must for the sake of her pupil.
As for the duke himself, it was bad enough when his unknown child landed on his doorstep. Now Lily, with her unassuming beauty, has aroused his most wicked fantasies—and, shockingly, his desire to change his wanton ways. He’s determined to become worthy of her, and so he asks for her help in correcting his behavior.
But Lily has a secret, one that, if it becomes known, could change everything . . .

Hello, and thanks for having me at Romancing the Reader!
The Duke’s Guide to Correct Behavior does indeed include a guide to being a duke (because so many of us need that guide, right?).
One of the reasons I like guides and such so much is that I can be pretty clueless at times about what to do in certain situations. So I thought I’d talk about what guides would be really useful to those of us who are not dukes (raise your hands, everyone!).
The Introvert’s Guide to Attending a Cocktail Party without Hiding by the Snack Table the Entire Time:
Are you shy and retiring, but still watching your waistline? Don’t worry! We have all the tricks to making polite conversation at a cocktail party that doesn’t mean you’ll just be chowing down on onion dip the entire time and talking about the quality of the potato chips. Tips include: Asking the loudmouth in the room to tell you all about his latest job success; offering to refresh everyone’s drinks; recounting the entire plot of Pulp Fiction in correct chronological order.
How to Look Your Best without Looking Like You Tried When You Know You’ll be Running Into an Ex and His New Girlfriend
Sure, you dumped him, but still. You don’t want him to think you’re doing worse now that you’ve broken up, do you? But you also don’t want him (or more importantly his new girlfriend, who can probably spot this stuff better) to know you actually care about how you look in front of him. Tips include: Flipping your head upside down right before you walk into the room so your hair is extra bouncy; kissing a random hot stranger for five minutes and making sure to keep the smug smile on your face after; accidentally texting him something flirty (not a sext, mind you!) and then immediately following up with an ‘oops, wrong number, sorry!’
How to Effectively Disguise the Naughty Stuff You’re Reading on Your Kindle When You’re in a Public Place
You take your e-reader everywhere, right? And sometimes—well, maybe a lot of the time—you’re reading some super seriously hot material that you really don’t want anybody to know about. But you’re on the subway, or at a parents’ meeting waiting for it to start, or on an airplane, and someone else is RIGHT there next to you, and you really don’t want him or her to see what you’re reading. Tips include: Adjusting your hands and arms to shield the page; lowering the type size; flipping to something very academic (ie boring) like a calculus textbook and letting the person read THAT, then switching back when they look away.
