Waiting on Wednesday 3/23: Eleven Scandals…by Sarah Maclean

It’s Wednesday again, and I’m trying to start posting again on a regular basis. I had a wonderful trip with my family to the Mexican Riviera in late February-early March and I’m still in that vacation mode.

Anyhow, here’s one of the many books I’m looking forward to reading soon.


Eleven Scandals to Start to Win a Duke’s Heart by Sarah Maclean

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.

I think I’ve even had dreams about this book, that’s how much I want to read it. In the meantime I might even reread Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake. It’s one of the books that sets the bar high for light, sexy historical romance.

Until next time!
