ELEVEN SCANDALS TO START TO WIN A DUKE'S HEART
The third book in the Love by Numbers series is a fast-paced, funny and tender read. You’ll love watching MacLean’s well-developed characters fall in love and define their relationship and enjoy the cameo appearances of her first two couples in this unforgettable story.
Juliana Fiori, the younger half-sister of the Marquess of Ralston, hasn’t been in England long, but she already knows that the English put lots of stock in proper behavior, but they’re not much for passion. When she meets Simon Pearson, the Duke of Leighton, who values his reputation above all, her mission is clear: show him the value of passion and bring him to his knees. Simon is equally intent on teaching the untameable Juliana some propriety. When scandal erupts Juliana leaves London for her brother’s home. She is shocked to find Simon there, and their desires explode. Ever the gentleman, Simon offers marriage, but Juliana refuses. Will Simon be able to prove to her that reputation be damned, she is his beloved? (AVON, May, 398 pp., $7.99)
