Review: Eleven Scandals To Start To Win A Duke’s Heart by Sarah MacLean
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 loved Sarah MacLean’s first book, Nine Rules to Break When Landing a Rake, and was disappointed in her second book, Ten Ways to be Adored When Landing a Lord, so I wasn’t sure what to expect with the third book. Would MacLean redeem herself or would I be relegated to the land of disappointment?
I am pleased to report that Eleven Scandals to Start to Win a Duke’s Heart was a most enjoyable read. The hero is a complete jerk in the beginning of the book but watching him come to terms with his past was more than enough to keep me turning the pages. The heroine is a breath of fresh air and watching these two generate their own special magic was sheer pleasure. ~ Renee, www.ireadromance.com
