    3. 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 reputationhis positionnding the perfect wifeavoiding any hint of scandalrgh! God, was he frustrating! At times I wanted to throttle him the way he continually hurt Juliana, and JulianaI don't know why she didn't give up on him! ButI'm glad she didn't! It took over 350 pages for Simon to finally get a clue, but when he did, all my [...]

    4. I received this wonderful book as an ARC from NetgalleyI 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 ba [...]

    5. 2.5 stars*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?However.I finished this in one day, so the problems I had with the book had nothing to do with readability. Trashy Romance novels are a guilt [...]

    6. FULL REVIEW NOW POSTED"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. (…)"5 scandalously shiny stars!Scandalously entertain [...]

    7. 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.Wait.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 unabs [...]

    8. 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 [...]

    9. 3.5 StarsI 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 [...]

    10. 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. [...]

    11. 3'5 y con una generosidad enorme. Tenía echado el ojo a Leighton desde el primer libro y me frotaba las manos al leer éste. Ya podría haber frotado la lámpara de Aladino para pedirle que en lugar de once escándalos hubieran sido tres, tal vez así el libro no me hubiera parecido tan repetitivo y a veces aburrido. Ha conseguido que hasta el duque-palote-por-el-trasero me cansara. Y de ella ya ni digo nada porque no se puede ser más cansina (si dice más veces que es un escándalo andante me [...]

    12. 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!Juliana Fiori, the Italian half sister of Nick and [...]

    13. 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.I was tired of rakes. So w [...]

    14. Juliana hayran kaldığım kadın karakterler arasında hızla üst sıralara tırmandı. Simon'dan nefret ettiğim kadar, Juliana'yı sevdim. Ne istediğini bilmesini, kuralları takmadan içinden geçtiği gibi yaşamasını, aşkı da tutkuyu da korkusuzca hissetmesini ve söylemesini Her şeyini sevdim. Bunun yanında Simon da bir o kadar antipatik geldi. Kafasına sürekli tavayla vurmak istedim. Kasıntı, kibirli, soğuk, duygusuz olmasının yanında düşüncesizlikleri beni çileden ç [...]

    15. 5 STARS"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.

    16. 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 [...]

    17. Finally.Juliana and Simons story, and what a story it was! We first meet the lovely, feisty, bold, impulsive Juliana Fiori as she is thrust in London society into the care of her twin half brothers, whom she had no clue existed and vice versa, in Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake and we get a couple glimpses of Simon, Duke of Leighton. Simon is known as the Duke of Disdain as he has no tolerance for anything but a pristine reputation. So when he learns that Juliana is barely a respectabl [...]

    18. 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 "id [...]

    19. 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.Before the book:Simon is a jackass. He is a snob, a jerk, thinks he is better [...]

    20. Mi opinión del libro es completamente personal, y aunque me encanta como escribe la autora y sé que seguiré leyendo sus novelas, deteste ésta.¿La razón? Esta pareja.Odie a Simón, es prepotente, arrogante e indeciso. No sabe si quiere a Juliana, pero no puede dejar que sea feliz, se la pasa censurandola y diciéndole lo que es mejor para ella, cuando eso no es ni remotamente la verdad. Al menos no es la verdad que Juliana parece buscar.Juliana, ¿qué te paso? En el primer libro te adore, [...]

    21. 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. [...]

    22. beahreads "Onze Leis A Cumprir Na Hora de Seduzir" é o terceiro e último volume da trilogia "Os Números do Amor" de Sarah MacLean. E finalmente, após lermos (e nos apaixonarmos) sobre os gêmeos Gabriel e Nick, chegou a vez da nossa querida Juliana protagonizar a sua própria estória de amor.Conhecida por sua ousadia e nacionalidade italiana, Juliana Fiori é basicamente um escândalo ambulante. Seu espirito livre e sua falta de familiaridade com as rigorosas regras da aristocracia britâni [...]

    23. 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 ha [...]

    24. I ADORED this book. Hands down, one of my favorite books of the year. Even now, after having read this several hours ago, I cannot stop thinking about it or the many emotions I experienced while reading it.I love a good strong heroine, and Juliana was all of that and more. I felt for her as she so desperately tried to fit in with the crowd and was consistently mocked and put down. She handled it with such poise and grace, that in turn, she was more of a lady than those that put her down. I espec [...]

    25. 5++ stars. Wow, wow, wow. What a book! It put me through an emotional wringer. This is one of the best books I have read in a while.To watch Simon change from something so cold and arrogant into a man that is worthy of Juliana's love was so amazing. I couldn't even dislike him in the beginning because I knew he would turn it around. Even though he kept rebuffing her the audience could feel his longing for Juliana.Every time Juliana had to face someone gossiping about her I got a little hitch in [...]

    26. 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 [...]

    27. First disclaimer: I got an ARC of this book from Avon via NetGalley and I'm so grateful to them for it! Also, I'd like to note that it's often SO much harder to tell why you loved a book than why you didn't, so forgive me if I babble. How much did I enjoy this book? I devoured it in 2 1/2 hours this morning. I do read fast, but still, I couldn't tear myself away from Juliana and Simon's story. You know that feeling you get in your stomach and throat, when you're enjoying a book so much, and want [...]

    28. 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 at [...]

    29. Simon Pearson, the Duke of Disdain is arrogant, proud and as the gossip proclaims way too aware of his status as a duke. That doesn’t make him sound loveable, now does it? But underneath the mask of an aristocrat hides a passionate, funny, loving man. He spent his entire life following the rules, being proper, but life throws a curveball at him. His sister, his unwed sister, is having a child. His brilliant plan – marry and marry well, so that when the scandal hits it would be easier to surv [...]
