Eleven Scandals to Start to Win a Duke's Heart

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.

What a mouthful!

The first book of the St John family series was amazing. It actually was my favourite read of last year. The second book was an entertaining read but it felt flat in comparison to the first. So you can imagine how much I was looking forward to the final book of the series.

I cannot tell you how disappointed I was with this book. It felt to me like it was written by the same author. Where in the first two books Juliana seemed to be fiery and exciting, in this one she came across as a klutz and attention seeker. Simon on the other hand was his usual self, you know the type...stick up you know where. A snob with a capital S-N-O-B! I couldn't understand their mutual attraction. I'm sure I'm missing something....
