Rated 5 out of 5 by from Captivating Regency romance I really enjoyed reading "When you give a Duke a Diamond" by Shana Galen This is the first book in her "Jewels of the Ton" series.Her character is one the three Diamonds in this series who also shares a mysterious past. It's the story of Juliette, the Duchess of Dalliance, a Courtesan and William, the sixth Duke of Pelham. It's really a charming romance filled with mystery, romance and intrigue! Very well written, it was a page turner. I first won and read, her second book "If you Give a Rake a Ruby" it was the story of Fallon, the Marchioness of Mystery, a Courtesan also and Warrick Fitzhugh. You will enjoy every minutes of these two delightful and wonderful romances set in the Regency era. Ms. Galen is an excellent writer and I can't wait to read the story of Lily, the Countess of Charm. Her third book "Sapphires are an Earl's best friend" expected to release in 2014
