She lives for passion
Bold, impulsive, and a magnet for trouble, Juliana Fiori is no simpering English miss. She refuses to play by society’s rules: she speaks her mind, cares nothing for the approval of the ton, and can throw a punch with remarkable accuracy. Her scandalous nature makes her a favorite subject of London’s most practiced gossips…and precisely the kind of woman the Duke of Leighton wants far far away from him.
He swears by reputation.
Scandal is the last thing Simon Pearson has room for in his well-ordered world. The Duke of Disdain is too focused on keeping his title untainted and his secrets unknown. But when he discovers Juliana hiding in his carriage late one evening–risking everything he holds dear–he swears to teach the reckless beauty a lesson in propriety.
She has other plans, however; she wants two weeks to prove that even an unflappable duke is not above passion.
I wasn’t quite as entranced by Eleven Scandals to Win a Duke’s Heart by Sarah MacLean as I was the other two books in the series, but I still found it to be an absolutely addicting read that I didn’t want to put down for a moment.
Juliana is not my favorite character of this series, so I think that’s why I was not as crazy about Eleven Scandals to Win a Duke’s Heart. That aside, I loved seeing all the other characters again. It was fun to see both Ralston and Nicholas and their families in this one. I loved that there was more of Georgiana in Eleven Scandals to Win a Duke’s Heart, as she is a lovely character and really grew a lot in this one.
Sarah MacLean has the best stories in her books; they are just so easy to instantly get caught up in. When you pair that with the awesome characters, you have just a wonderful story I am so sad to see the Love By Numbers trilogy come to a close, as I have just loved all three books. Sarah MacLean is one talented writer, and I am really anxious to see what it next for her.
