Juliette, Duchess of Dalliance, is a beautiful courtesan. She has just learned that the biggest catch of society is on the marriage market, causing quite a stir.

Juliette finds herself cut in front of the entire ton by this Duke, even though scandal sheets claim that they are having an affair. Going to the balcony for some air after being humiliated, she ends up witnessing a murder and finds her life in danger. Juliette turns to the Duke for safety and doing so, finds out his darkest secret. She feels that she is the only one who can help the Duke and give him what his life needs most, excitement.

William, the sixth Duke of Pelham lives his life on schedule, never wavering from his routine, until he meets Juliette. This outspoken, beautiful woman who is known for living life to the fullest, turns his life upside down. He makes the rules and she breaks them, throwing his life into turmoil. He believes he can correct this but finds himself falling under her spell. Knowing a relationship can never be, he fights his instincts and finds out that this could be a losing battle.

I most definitely agree with a back cover review that calls this romance 'brilliant and sexy'. Shana Galen portrays her characters with such brilliant definition that readers fall in love. And the build up for the steamy hot love scenes is definitely sexy. When You Give a Duke a Diamond is full of action, surprises, humor and of course romance.
