The lovely Avon marketers asked me to write up a quiz on just how noble you are. So I did, and here it is; let me know what rank you ended up with.
Sorry for being absent here–I tried to log in a bit ago, only something was off, and then I wandered away and forgot. Because ME.
Let’s see. The Duke’s Guide to Correct Behavior is out, it is doing well, and got chosen by awesome author Sarah MacLean to be included in her list of Best New Romance Novels for December in the Washington Post (my Boston Globe editor father might’ve groused, but I’m pretty darn pleased!).
Put Up Your Duke, the second book in the Dukes Behaving Badly series, has a cover* and a blurb! It’ll be out June 30, 2015.
He was once happily bedding and boxing, but in the newest Duke’s Behaving Badly novel, Nicholas Smithfield has inherited a title and a bride . . .
To keep his estate afloat, the new Duke of Gage must honor an agreement to marry Lady Isabella Sawford. Stunningly beautiful, utterly tempting, she’s also a bag of wedding night nerves, so Nicholas decides to wait to do his duty—even if it means heading to the boxing saloon every day to punch away his frustration.
Groomed her whole life to become the perfect duchess, Isabella longs for independence, a dream that is gone forever. As her husband, Nicholas can do whatever he likes—but, to Isabella’s surprise, the notorious rake instead begins a gentle seduction that is melting every inch of her reserve, night by night . . .
To his utter shock, Nicholas discovers that no previous exploits were half as pleasurable as wooing his own wife. But has the realm’s most disreputable duke found the one woman who can bring him to his knees— and leave him there?

I am currently writing the next book in the Dukes Behaving Badly series and it’s going pretty well, I think. I hope.

*I am having problems uploading the image, probably MY problem, but if you click you can see it. Or wait until I figure it out.
Meanwhile, you can sign up for my newsletter, which will be sporadic (because I know myself!), and will just share release news and other important Frampton thingies.
I am starting work on a new project, one that has a character from Put Up Your Duke, my second Dukes Behaving Badly book (PUYD comes out in June of 2015).
And that’s it! Thanks for stopping by, thanks for signing up for the newsletter, thanks for reading.
I’m working on edits for my February 2015 novella, When Good Earls Go Bad. It’s one of my zanier books; the heroine is exceedingly literal, and the hero is quite pragmatic. They share a love of books, toast, and honesty. Here’s a bit from when Annabelle and Matthew are walking home, and she’s taken his arm:
Goodness, he was strong. Maybe he did do his own housework; bringing in firewood, beating rugs, moving furniture around, and other tasks would certainly build up his muscles. Perhaps there were different requirements for Earls of the Scottish persuasion so it was necessary for them to be all muscular, as well as handsome.
Or maybe it was only this one. In which case she was quite pleased she had not ended up with, say, the gouty Earl with the high-pitched cackle and a penchant for eating smelly fish.
Not that she knew if this one ate smelly fish, but she knew about the rest of it.
After I turn the edits in for this one, I’m launching into edits for Put Up Your Duke, and then–? I’m not sure!
