★★★★ This is the third book in the "Love by Numbers" series. I found this book an enjoyable read. I liked Juliana and Simon. I liked him in the other two books in the series - well I enjoyed the idea of his character finding love and the story it could be, as he is a hard man with rigid rules. So you know that they are going to need to be broken. That said, sometimes through out this book, it bothered me when even while engaged, he would still entertain another. But that was not that big a deal. I look forward to her next series where some of these characters continue their stories.
Here's the Blurb:
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.
