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.

This was my favorite in the series, the characters were three dimensional and the story was so engaging! I couldn't put it down!
Not for me
I'm not a big fan of overly willful, independent female characters, but I can enjoy a 'strong' heroine if the creativity is just right. This author has made the mistake, in my opinion, that many romance authors make when trying to create a strong female character. The immature banter between the male & female was utterly monotonous. Man! I just wanted to pull my hair out at her constantly reminding him of his need for 'passion'. The heroine's/Juliana's reckless willfulness was so over the top that it became a little tedious to read. Most men I know would never be attracted to a woman who acts so immature and contrary. And what is the author's problem with petite females?
