There is no telling where a scandal might lead…

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.


Sarah MacLean wrote two of my favorite books I read last year (see below), and I’ve been eagerly awaiting the release of this book! It’s the conclusion of the trilogy which makes me sad. :(



Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake is the first book in this trilogy. It was my first Historical Romance book ever and I LOVED…LOOOOOVED it!! If you have not read it, do it soon!







The sequel, Ten Ways to Be Adored When Landing a Lord, was also really good…but to me, the first one is still better.

    I love historical romance, I grew up on it reading my moms books! Started with Joanna Lindsey at around 10 (LOL, got quite the sex ed lesson there) but I really loved the historical dress, surroundings, mannerisms, etc… of course the Dashing ______ (fill in the blank)Great choice, I need to read more historical romance, I love it but my blog is mostly YA PNR/UF, Chic lit, etc… but I read a lot for enjoyment. This will go on my TBR list!Thanks so much for sharing this!Kristi-The Book Faery's WOW

    I just finished reading The Luxe by Anna Godbersen, which is a YA novel, but these 2 books by Sarah McLean kind of remind me of that same setting– they sound very "sexy English Victorian" haha– I think I might just have to read these!! Feel free to check out my WoW at LC's Adventures in LibrarylandHappy reading to you!! :)
