Eleven Scandals to Start to Win a Duke's Heart (Mass Market Paperback)
Not currently in the store – Usually ships in 1-5 days
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 eveningrisking everything he holds dearhe 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.
About the Author
Sarah MacLean grew up in Rhode Island, obsessed with historical romance and bemoaning the fact that she was born far too late for her own season. Her love of all things historical helped to earn her degrees from Smith College and Harvard University before she finally set pen to paper and wrote her first book.
Sarah now lives in New York City with her husband, their dog, and a ridiculously large collection of romance novels.
Praise for Eleven Scandals to Start to Win a Duke's Heart…
‘Wow! What an amazing book about two people who are meant to be together, but need fate to intervene.”
-Eye on Romance
MacLean’s devilishly fun debut novel is an absolute delight: rich in supple wit, suffused with sensuality, and enlivened with a wonderfully engaging cast of characters.
-Booklist (starred review)
MacLean has penned a fast-paced, funny tale with a marvelous cast of characters who captivate and enchant. This book should come with a warning: Once you start, you won’t want to put it down!
-Romantic Times BOOKclub
An entertaining Regency debut.... The 19th-century clothes are luscious, the 21st-century sensibility is raunchy, and it’s all implausible, escapist fun.
Wow, what a great book! I love it. One of the best wrenching-heart scenes ever...Fabulous!
“Sarah MacLean has a gift that seems to get better with every book.”
-Night Owl Romance
Sarah MacLean became an instant must-read author with Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake last year. Fourteen months and another two books later, that hasn’t changed.
“Cleverly orchestrated and genuinely touching, 11 Scandals to Start is a treat from start to finish.”
-New York Journal of Books
