Juliana Fiori is not scared of anything or anyone except causing more scandal for her family. Unfortunately, she cannot seem to avoid it. From being accosted in the garden, to riding full speed through Hyde Park, she has a problem staying out of trouble. Her Italian roots guarantee her need for adventure and passion, but this is the cause of many of her problems, especially her problem with Simon Pearson, Duke of Disdain. While she is trying to escape an overzealous suitor she hides in Simonís carriage, and that is when the fun begins.
Simon Pearson is all about decorum. He has worked to keep his reputation and the reputation of his family pristine, but then when something threatens it, he pledges to make a good match with someone above reproach. Unfortunately, he is attracted to a beautiful, blue-eyed walking scandal. She challenges him that he cannot exist without passion, his challenge is she cannot exist without reputation. Ultimately, they cannot exist without each other and unfortunately for them, others would rather they go their separate ways.
Eleven Scandals to Start to Win a Dukeís Heart is a pretty good read. Juliana begins to grow on you and you begin to root for her happiness. The chemistry between the characters is breath-taking. This story wraps you up and does not let you go. As historical romances go, I learned more about London society and its unfair caste system. Good job Sarah MacLean. This is the third of a trilogy and I have enjoyed all of them.
