Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.

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.

Review by Library Journal (2011-04-15)

Recently reconnected with her twin half-brothers, Italian-born Juliana Fiori derides London society. Having their mother abandon the boys 25 years earlier and then her daughter as well makes the whole family subject to gossip. Juliana does seem prone to her own form of brash behavior, so is it any wonder her escape from a drunken lord during a ball leads her to hide in the carriage of the one man who would consider her a scandal? Simon Pearson, the Duke of Leighton, is devoted to adhering to ton strictures and avoiding any blot on his name and reputation.

His marriage to a very respectable young woman will ensure such propriety. Yet somehow he is engaged in a wager with the outlandish Miss Fiori whereby she will force him to admit that "not even a frigid duke can live without heat".

Verdict: MacLean (Ten Ways To Be Adored When Landing a Lord) brings the trilogy of the St. John family to a rollicking end with this delightful story of a high-spirited young woman trying to fit in and a straight-laced duke who comes to realize that a touch of scandal might be good for the heart and the soul. Witty and deeply involving, MacLean's latest should not be missed.
