Title: Royal Treatment (Royal Scandal #3)
All this duke needs is his duchess...
For five blissful months I've been engaged to Dylan Hale, the most handsome, commanding, and wickedly sexy duke in England. For five months I've woken up next to the man I love, indulged in secret trysts, and submitted to every delicious desire. Even better? We've managed to keep it hidden from everyone. That means no paparazzi scandals, no snide comments from Dylan's mother, and no harsh public scrutiny. It's been heaven, but with Dylan's royal responsibilities looming, our time alone is running out. And while I can't wait to be Dylan's wife, I'm terrified that becoming Dylan's duchess might mean losing myself.

I love a good royal story, but this one fell very flat for me. I was utterly lost almost from page one; the dirty talk between the two main characters was over the top for a new-to-the-series reader such as myself.
Perhaps readers familiar with the couple from the first two books can accept the way in which Dylan speaks to and acts with Lydia. Perhaps they’ll also understand what the heck is going on with the mess in which Dylan’s father left their shipping company, and the reason why his mother is so hostile towards Lydia.
I picked up this book 5 different times over the course of a month and a half, and I just couldn’t get into it at all. I wasn’t invested in the characters or the plot line, and it wasn’t explained to me in a way that was engaging. I was expected to know the backstory and the characters; therefore, in my opinion, this is not a standalone novel, and I didn’t care enough to read the first two.
