Eleven Scandals to Start to Win a Duke's Heart | [Sarah MacLean]

Eleven Scandals to Start to Win a Duke's Heart

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.

Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Not as good as the 2nd book."

    This was an okay story, not nearly as good as the second book. I liked the chemistry and the bickering between Juliana and Simon "The Duke". The story was good. I would have liked there to be a better ending with the mother, ie, she deserved to get exiled or something without a penny. But unfortunately that was left with no resolution.

    The narration was not the best. I thought the narrator did the men's voices better than the women's. She made Juliana sound like a wretched old crow most of the time, especially when she was angry. And she should never do an Italian voice ever again.

    Story
    "Enjoyed the family loyalty"

    The first part was more intriguing than the second because it tended to be repetitious and move slower after the first half. Interesting characters including the stereotyped straight-laced Duke. Count how many times the author uses her favorite word: imperious. The narrator's Italian accent was actually quite good, although loud.

    "Love Simon!!!"

    Simon's character was hard to like at first but as the story went on he became easier to understand. He had family and duty and in that time it meant everything. He loved his sister, not always I the right way, but he still loved her.

    His love for his siren made him a true man. He loved someone who all deemed undesirable. In the end they both learned that love was enough.

    Married, not quite 40 mom from the mid-west. I sit behind a computer all day translating large amounts of data into business solutions.

    "Opposites Attract in this fun read"

    Another entertaining read by Sarah MacLean. Simon is the least likable of men, but you cannot help but celebrate as Julie delivers her lessons on what it means to live. I plan on checking out the other books from this author.

    Story
    "Duke of distain and a shameless heroine"

    The hero is not very likable and the heroine’s total lack of self-respect is appalling. The wager between the hero and the heroine was a bit silly since he had not much to gain from it and no true reason to agree especially since he was engaged to be married to someone else. It almost seemed like he wanted to go along with the wager to have fun at her expense. He did not stop to consider that by doing so he is endangering a good friend’s sister's fragile reputation even further. The heroine’s total lack of concern for her purity or reputation in addition to her constant attempts at pathetically chasing a man, who found her completely unacceptable as a wife, was so very unsatisfactory. I can’t imagine this method working for anyone but apparently it worked for this Duke.

    I understand that the times were different and being from a different culture myself I can see how one can get brainwashed enough to follow society’s rules at any expense. I did however like that he did find his heart at the end of the book. Not a 5 or 4 star but a definite 3.
