Put Up Your Duke: A Dukes Behaving Badly Novel (Dukes Behaving Badly Book 2) Kindle Edition
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?

Having said that, I thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it as Nicholas and Isabella worked their way to HEA. Although a lengthy read, and a lot of introspection, the plot did not flag.
The little epigraphs were fun too.
I look forward to Margaret's story.
Nicolas and Isabella are both likable leads. Nicolas has unexpectedly inherited a dukedom and a wife along with it. Needless to say, he is not pleased to be forced to marry. Even though Isabella is the most beautiful woman he has ever seen.
Isabella has been raised to be perfect. She hides her true self behind the façade of perfection. No one knows the true Isabella - including herself.
I fell a little in love with Nicolas while he got to know Isabella and the way he treated her. I fell more in love when he remained faithful to her after their marriage, when it was clear to him that their relationship wasn't going to be physical any time soon. And for a man that only did two things - boxing and bedding - I was impressed.
It was a very sweet story, not nearly as steamy as I usually like - but appropriate for the story. I also liked the Lady of Mystery serial that was featured at the beginning of each chapter. I was almost more invested I that story than I was with Nicolas and Isabella :)
I would happily recommend this book and am looking forward to the next installment!
