When You Give a Duke a Diamond (Jewels of the Ton, #1)
Book 1
Jewels of the Ton

He had a perfectly orderly life...

William, the sixth Duke of Pelham, enjoys his punctual, securely structured life. Orderly and predictable—that's the way he likes it. But he's in the public eye, and the scandal sheets will make up anything to sell papers. When the gossip papers link him to Juliette, one of the most beautiful and celebrated courtesans in London, chaos doesn't begin to describe what happens next...

Until she came along...

Juliette is nicknamed the Duchess of Dalliance and has the cream of the nobility at her beck and call. It's disruptive to have the duke who is the biggest catch on the Marriage Mart scaring her other suitors away. Then she discovers William's darkest secret and decides what he needs in his life is the kind of excitement only she can provide...

I gave this book a 
When You Give A Duke a Diamond by Shana Galen is historical romance at its wittiest! Galen brings us audacious and animated characters that will keep you in stitches.  Juliette's use of amusing sarcasm and expressions allow readers to experience this story in a unique way, being fodder for gossip mongers never looked so fun.  The Dangerous Duke, Will, gets tastier on each page as readers watch his transformation.  Mystery and intrigue grip this story from the very beginning, not to mention a ghastly murder. I enjoyed this  book and look forward to the next, If You Give a Rake a Ruby by Shana Galen. In fact, I will be reviewing the ARC as soon as I'm done writing this review!  Thank you Shana Galen for making this journey so memorable.
