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.

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 love, love, love this book! I’ve been anxious for Juliana’s story and was a little worried that I wouldn’t like her story as much as I did her brother’s. I liked ELEVEN SCANDALS TO WIN A DUKE’S HEART even more. There is so much sexual tension and heat between Juliana and Simon that I was worried my Kindle was going to catch fire. Both characters have external pressures – Julianna’s mother and Simon’s sister – that they must overcome before they can be happy. Julianna loves to push boundaries with everyone, but especially Simon. Simon wants to live a scandal free life and knows that it isn’t possible with Julianna. I loved how these two fight against the inevitable and that when Simon decides to fight for love he does so in an enormous way. ELEVEN SCANDALS has a perfect ending (and I’ve reread it several times already). This book is definitely one for the keeper shelf (I had to order a paper copy!) and everyone should run out today and buy it.

5 Comments on “Review: ELEVEN SCANDALS TO START TO WIN A DUKE’S HEART by Sarah Maclean

  1. I have been hearing good things from this author! I think I will definitely pick up the first in this series!

  2. This book should come with a warning. On the front cover it should say in big, bold black type “Don’t start reading if you have a big day tomorrow and can’t afford to stay up all night.” The book is great – it deserves a 5+ rating.
