The scandal of the season!
For American Katrina Vandenberg, the rules of London society are stifling. So, when a rare moment of solitude at a particularly tedious ball is interrupted, she's disappointed…until she lays eyes on a very handsome stranger!
Julian Carlisle, Duke of Lyonsdale, is destined for a dull marriage of convenience, and Katrina couldn't be further from the docile, blue–blooded bride he needs. An affair would be scandalous, but could there be a way for this highly unsuitable woman to become Julian's perfect duchess after all?

An excellent debut novel and first book in the "Secret Lives of the Ton Series" by author Laurie Benson. I adored the hero and heroin in this book and the secondary characters are excellent. The banter between all is fun and entertaining and the story is well written. I'm looking forward to reading the other books in this series. Laurie Benson has become an automatic buy for me!
Mixing an American and a Duke led to some interesting places. Katrina was intriguing with her very proper behavior when required and her more colonial tendencies as time. I found her fun to read. Julian's desire to do what was expected of him made him a bit aloof at times, but when he realized life had more to offer than duty, I enjoyed him more. I loved this story and look forward to reading the rest of the series. I received this book free through Harlequin, and this is my unsolicited review.
I love strong heroines and this one was amazing! She stood on her own and didn't take any flack from anyone while still acting like a lady. I loved that Julian caught her attention without her even knowing who he was. The witty banter between the two was what caught my attention and their interaction kept me reading! A new to me author who I'll be following from now on! Wonderfully written for a first book!!
