This book has it all! Two wonderful main characters, a great story, witty dialogue, sensual and hot love scenes, swoony and break-my-heart emotional moments and a beautiful happy ending Photobucket

A great story:
Running away from a drunken idiot trying to maul her, Juliana tries to hide in a carriage. But she is soon discovered, not by the drunken idiot, but by the Duke of Leighton, aka The Duke of Disdain. He thinks she's there to trap him in marriage, and that only lessens

*Warning: Some spoilers may not be tagged*

I was hoping for a fun bodice ripper, and this one had so many glowing reviews that I thought it would be a good choice.
Unfortunately, I didn't like the Simon or Juliana.
In my opinion, the title could easily have been The Ass and the Idiot .
And really, if you don't like the characters what are you left with?
I finished this in one day, so the problems I had with the book had nothing to do with readability.

This book was very, very, good, but I must admit the hero, Simon Pearson (the Duke of Leighton) at times drove me absolutely crazy! All that worrying about his family's reputation...his position...finding the perfect wife...avoiding any hint of scandal...arrgh! God, was he frustrating! At times I wanted to throttle him the way he continually hurt Juliana, and Juliana...I don't know why she didn't give up on him! But...I'm glad she didn't!

“Some things are more powerful than scandal, Simon.”

A heroine who is a walking scandal in everyone’s eyes. A scandalous bomb that is bound to explode anytime. A hero who is named as the “Duke of disdain” because of how he always looks down on everyone and all he cares about is his reputation. A love story between a cold-hearted logical hero and a very passionate heroine. Then there’s Me here just reading and enjoying all the back and forth, push and pull, and the hopeless resi

I was so excited for Juliana's book when we met her in the first book. She's trying to integrate into society, but her mother's scandal follows her everywhere and she doesn't seem to care what English people think of her. Simon, on the other hand, is a duke who must marry well to save his family's reputation from a scandal that will leak any day. Juliana and Simon have immediate chemistry, but Juliana is the kind of person Simon can't associate with if he wants to save his family.

I adored this book. I fell in love with Juliana in Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake, and in Eleven Scandals, the young woman she becomes does not disappoint.

When we first met Juliana in Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake, we met an impetuous unsure young lady who wasn’t sure she wanted a place in society. Juliana was fantastic, and passionate, and so desperate to prove she didn't care what the ton thought of her. But too

I feel sick because of how good this was. My heart is so full! 🥺

"You are beautiful and brilliant and bold and so very passionate about life and love and those things that you believe in. And you taught me that everything I believed, everything I thought I wanted, everything I had spent my life espousing--all of it…it is wrong. I want your version of life…vivid and emotional and messy and wonderful and filled with happiness. But I cannot have it without you. I love you, Juliana. (…)"

I feel like a traitor for rating a Sarah MacLean less than 3 stars and yet, here we are.

The story is fine. I like the opposites attract thing Julianna and Simon had going. I probably would've enjoyed it more if I didn't dislike the two main characters so much. It was cute at first. Simon's orderly world is being upended by the daring and carefree Julianna. And then it just devolved into these two behaving stupidly and making even stupider decisions.

Good riddance! I was torn between banging my he
Cute and fun, like the rest of the series. But, it really took me a long time to like the guy in the book. He was a smug jerk-face douche in the last book, and spent most of this one the same. This guy thinks he is way too good for our girl. He's a duke, after all, and she's just the half-sister of an earl. And, she's Italian - prone to emotions. A scandal waiting to happen. He might consider her for a mistress, but she is nowhere good enough to marry.

The baby is right. He totally deserved that.

Simon, the Duke of Leighton is described as being enormous, but he’s not going on my “hero is a mountain” shelf. He doesn’t deserve it.

The third in the “Love By Numbers” series is the one I most wanted to read. I was intrigued by the starchy Duke who had become interested in the beautiful Italian Juliana -- and then rejected her when he discovered her sketchy background. (By the way, although the characters were introduced in the earlier books, I think one this would stand alone just fine.) I lo
His eyes narrowed on the marquess, a man he barely tolerated on a good day. This was not turning out to be a good day. “I’m not marrying the girl.”
“There’s no way I’m marrying him!” she cried at the same moment.
Well. At least they agreed on something.
She didn’t want to marry him? She could do a damned sight worse. He was a duke, for God’s sake! And she was a walking scandal.

Every once in a while, a historical romance comes along that makes all those other cliched and unabsorbing HRs, if not
3.5 Stars

I was really uncertain about whether or not I would like this book. The first book in the series was a big hit for me, but the second book was a letdown. I loved the tension between Simon and Juliana in the first book, but in the second Simon crossed over from being cold and arrogant (which is not necessarily a bad thing) into an outright ass. His behavior of a certain family member severely dropped his appeal in my eyes. I was hesitant to start this, but the first chapter sucked me in

I can't stand the romance heroine who's hot-headed, stubborn, self-centered, childish ... it's a character type in novels that I simply hate. I knew from the prior two books that I would have a problem with Juliana and boy did I ever.

I have issues with this character type for a few reasons. 1) They're selfish and annoying, 2) It's the kind of thing historical romance authors always do to women who are not English. Especially to French and Italian women. They're always brash and calling everyone

"It seems you are not so immune to passion as you think, Your Grace."

Holy cow! This was my favorite of the series. I cannot tell you how much I love Sarah MacLean's writing. Her characters. Her witty dialogue. Her sexy as sin heroes. And most of all her fabulous heroines. There was nothing about this book I didn't love.
6 stars!!!!

After reading Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rakeand Ten Ways to Be Adored When Landing a Lord I was excited to hear about the third book in Sarah MacLean’s “Love By Numbers” series called “Eleven Scandals to Start to Win a Duke’s Heart” and man was I totally blown away by this awesome romance novel! Full of excitement, forbidden pleasures and pure love making scenes, this novel will definitely stand the test of time!

After hating the previous book I never even wondered about this one.
If there were not some funny statuses from a dear gr friend I would never have read it.
And that is horrible!
I would miss out a lot!
This book is one of those book that give you back fate in to a genre.
I read a lot of HR and to be frank it was becoming a strain. Most of the time there were no new themes,and the same old way things are narrated are ever present which make me bored even with the sex scenes.

Another great installment in the Love By Numbers Series. I love the way Sarah MacLean weaves her story around intelligent, witty characters and their banter always holds my attention from the first page until the last. I also like it when a romance novel makes me laugh, and there were some laugh out loud moments for me in this one!

This is the 3rd installment and I loved it! Juliana Fiori is full of spunk and character. This beautiful young Italian is bold, impetuous, intelligent, quick witted, a
Finally....Juliana and Simons story, and what a story it was!

Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake simply stole my heart. I LOVED that book. Ten Ways to Be Adored When Landing a Lord was okay but didn't wow me. In fact, I didn't know if I wanted to continue with this series after book 2.

Eleven Scandals to Start to Win a Duke's Heart made me love this series all over again.

If you haven't read book 1, or book 2, there might be small spoilers in my review. You have been warned.

5+++ Stars!

A fabulous ending to a magnificent series!! This book was beyond enjoyable, I could not put it down. Great characters and the plot is solid. Leighton and Juliana are one of a kind characters. I was sad when it ended. This is what an historical romance is all about! I wish I could give it 10 stars! I'm hard to please when it comes to historical novels so if I say its a good book its a good one indeed.

I was really looking forward to reading this book. I loved Nine Rules and Ten Ways, the first two books in the series, and enjoyed the author’s writing. I loved Juliana in those books and hoped to see her throw the Duke of Leighton off his high horse. I was hoping to love this book as well. Sadly, what I got was a lot of frustration, anger and disappointment.

Favorite Quote: “You are a scandal waiting to happen.

Although this is the third book in the trilogy, it’s the first I read and it works perfectly as a stand alone. This book is so well written, I don’t see how it won’t capture your heart.

Simon, Duke of Leighton or nicknamed the “Duke of Disdain” made my insides flutter. He is the cold, impenetrable duke who lives his life as he was raised – emotionless and bred for his title. His lineage is perfect and he portrays the perfect duke. But he has a

We got to see both Simon and Juliana in previous books. And while I liked Juliana, Simon was kind of a jackwagon. Particularly in the last book where he cast off a sister he professed/seemed to love because she got pregnant (out of wedlock and won't reveal who the guy was). So I was curious as to see how MacLean would redeem him. Answer: she didn't really bother.

Indeed, I'm struggling to see what Juliana sees in the big jerk. He's mean to her over and over and she keeps signing up for more. That
Ugh. I think this could be my least favorite Sarah MacLean. I didn't feel any chemistry between the main characters and I think the love story was not as cute as I hoped it would be.

I think I have an unpopular opinion but my favorite book of the series was "Ten ways to be adored when landing a lord". Nick and Isabel were my favorite couple in this series.
5 Big Stars

I'm sorry I can't give more stars, because I'd give this book 20 if I could. IMO, this is by far the best one in the series and one of my all-time favorite books.

Warning: Minor Spoilers. If you mind please don't read further.

Juliana and Simon, Duke of Leighton, were introduced to us in book 1 and they felt an instant attraction for one another, that is before Simon learned about her identity and decided that she's not good enough for him. So the story starts with the h/h already a

This was my first time reading Sarah MacLean. I’ll admit that when I started this book, and saw where the story was going, I felt an eye-roll coming on. Well, it didn’t take long for that feeling to change. Juliana captured my heart quickly, the daughter of a fallen English marchioness, and an Italian merchant, she is considered by the ton to be a mere commoner. Her mother took off when she was a child, and after the recent passing of father, she was shipped off to London to live with her half b
Reflecting on this book, I don't know who annoyed me more. The hero or the heroine? But by golly, I think there were moments I wanted to smack them both because they were so repetitive. But getting down to it, it's probably the hero that gets to me the most.

I don't necessary hate Julianna. But out of the three heroines from the series, I find her the weakest. Sure she's running around yelling and screeching demands and holding her head up high. But at some point her level of maturity was so stag
