Series: Love By Numbers, #3
Publication Date: May 1st 2011 by Avon

Summary: 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.

Heroine: MacLean is a fantastic writer because no matter how hard you resist, you will end up cheering for Juliana. She is so easy to relate to because MacLean taps into that feeling of just wanting to belong.

Hero: Leighton is my kind of hero. He’s stubborn and he does think quite highly of himself, but it makes it all the more fun to see his facade crack.

Supporting Cast: A highlight of the entire series – not just this book in particular – is the interaction between the siblings. I love the scenes with Juliana, Gabriel, and Nicholas. I love the role that Gabriel played in this book, especially whenever he is in a scene with Leighton.

Plot: I didn’t enjoy the premise of Eleven Scandals as much as I had with Nine Rules, but overall the “scandals” that Juliana starts are so much fun.

Romance: Fantastic romance. MacLean kept me on my toes up until the very end of the book. Juliana and Leighton had the best chemistry. This wasn’t the steamiest novel I’ve ever read, but it definitely ranks high on sexual tension and chemistry.

Love Potion Strength:

Exceeds Expectations

MacLean is officially one of my favorite romance writers. If you loved any of her previous books or if you’re new to this author, definitely pick this up!
