Editorial Reviews


‘Wow! What an amazing book about two people who are meant to be together, but need fate to intervene.” (Eye on Romance)

MacLean’s devilishly fun debut novel is an absolute delight: rich in supple wit, suffused with sensuality, and enlivened with a wonderfully engaging cast of characters. (Booklist (starred review))

MacLean has penned a fast-paced, funny tale with a marvelous cast of characters who captivate and enchant. This book should come with a warning: Once you start, you won’t want to put it down! (Romantic Times BOOKclub)

An entertaining Regency debut.... The 19th-century clothes are luscious, the 21st-century sensibility is raunchy, and it’s all implausible, escapist fun. (Publishers Weekly)

Wow, what a great book! I love it. One of the best wrenching-heart scenes ever...Fabulous! (Eloisa James)

“Sarah MacLean has a gift that seems to get better with every book.” (Night Owl Romance)

Sarah MacLean became an instant must-read author with Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake last year. Fourteen months and another two books later, that hasn’t changed. (McClatchy-Tribune News)

“Cleverly orchestrated and genuinely touching, 11 Scandals to Start is a treat from start to finish.” (New York Journal of Books)

From the Back Cover

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.

More About the Author

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Sarah MacLean grew up in Rhode Island, obsessed with historical romance. Her love of all things historical helped to earn her degrees from Smith College and Harvard University before she finally set pen to paper and wrote her first book. Sarah now lives in New York City with her husband, their dog, and a ridiculously large collection of romance novels.

This book is the third book in the Love By Numbers Series. After reading the first book in the series, I was filled with excitement in finding the joy in historical romance. Then I read the second book in the series and was less than thrilled. Since I had already started the series, I decided to accept the review copy and give the author another chance to wow me with the third book.

Readers, this book surpassed my excitement that I had with the first book. It was a complete turn around from the second book as well. With Juliana and Simon focused on in this book, my love for Historical Romance has been renewed. I admit that I had reservations on how the author was going to make Simon a character that I would enjoy. Let's face it, Simon could be a stuck up jerk half the time, but I loved how the author sucked me into his web of love. Juliana was wonderful as well. I loved how she was portrayed and how she was able to bring Simon down a couple of notches.

I devoured this book in less than 3 hours! If I didn't have a bunch of books sitting in my to-read pile right now, I would seriously consider rereading it again. If you are a new reader to this genre or are just looking for a new Historical Romance to read, then this is the book! This author has made me open my eyes to this genre a little wider and it will leave you breathless!

I had 4 of my favorite authors releasing a new book today, and I didn't hesitate to purchase Sarah Maclean's book first. And boy was I not disappointed! It involves Juliana, a young half-Italian, sister of a Marquess, who's mother caused a scandal just by running off and marrying her father which makes everyone doubt her legitimacy. And of course makes her less than desirable on the marriage mart, even though her brothers have acknowledged her. (also, she's a bit feisty and can't help but land in scandal after scandal) I know...sounds confusing, but stay with me! Then you have our hero, Simon, the duke of Leighton. He is what you might think a duke would be... haughty, uptight, overly concerned about his reputation and finding a bride with a impeccable pedigree. Now put this proper duke with the scandalous Juliana, and what you get is a romance that will take you on a roller coaster ride of challenges, emotions, stolen kisses, romance and tons of fun. He wants her but doesn't want to admit it. She wants him but is too proud to let him see it. She knows that he believes himself too good for her and she does everything she can to goad him into admitting he feels passion for her.

And boy does she succeed! I could not put this book down and i read it front start to finish in one morning (and missed my workout!). It's a fun and entertaining read, but you also feel the emotion pouring from Ms. Maclean's dialogue between the H&H. Simon is uptight, but not so much as to make him unlikeable. Once you read how he was raised, and meet his mother, well, you begin to understand why he is the way he is and you'll find yourself rooting for him to step out of his self-imposed rules and finally reach out for the woman who has shaken his whole world. I loved Juliana.

Let it be known that Sarah MacLean is Queen of Romance! Nine Rules was an infatuation and Ten Ways really swept me away, but Eleven Scandals is in a whole other level of LOVE that I'm pretty sure that I'm still floating on Cloud 9 after weeks upon finishing it. I didn't think it was possible for Ms. MacLean's romances to burn any hotter, but holy fried-Twinkie-on-a-stick, the temperature of Eleven Scandals most likely rivaled the Sun's!

I was surprised to see how hard I fell for this new couple since the Duke of Leighton proved himself to be a right bastard by the end of Book 2 and Juliana didn't really have much pagetime in the first 2 books! Simon still was a bit of a pompous jerk at first, but once the spotlight shone on his inner conflict between his upbringing and his desires, he has to be one of my absolute favorite male characters! Watching the Duke carry the weight of reputation and family scandal was fascinating - and he definitely redeems himself after giving us a poor impression in Nine Rules and Ten Ways.

Juliana definitely sparkled in Eleven Scandals - and I have to commend Ms. MacLean for creating a character with such an adorable quirk of not quite mastering English idioms. My favorites include: "He called me a pie!" and "I would like to clean the air." Oy, it was just too cute for words! Juliana has a lot of heart, and I could not help but admire her strength and determination to teach Simon a lesson on passion and what "family" truly means.

The most remarkable thing about Eleven Scandals is how it brought back beloved characters of the previous installments - Callie and Gabriel, Nick and Isabel, Leighton's sister Georgiana. I've read other romance series where prior characters make brief reappearances in the next book, but nothing of much substance.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I've given this 4 stars for the romance and for the writing. It's not especially historical and the language and behavior of the characters is somewhat anachronistic, but who cares? This is one to read for the love story. It's much better than the second in the series (TEN WAYS...) but not quite as good as the first (NINE RULES...). (Possibly because you always remember your first as being very special?)

I'm not exactly sure why heroine Juliana falls for hero Simon, other than the fact that he is a hunk. But fall she does and hard and we just go on from there. The story is not unique. Unconventional, beautiful heroine of somewhat iffy background and staid, respectable very upper-class hero, but MacLean writes well enough to make it seem fresh and the interactions between the two are quite romantic and compelling. You can, as they say, feel the love and attraction (mostly the attraction). It's worth the read. There are warm, romantic moments and even some rather heart-wrenching ones.

MacLean also manages this time around to make the love scene dialogue less trite and silly. No "I'll-catch-you-when-you-fall-my-beauty" stuff, for which I am grateful. All in all, it's a good love story if you don't read it to learn about life in 1823 England.
