Studies in Scandal

When Lady Celeste Beauchamp, a bluestocking spinster with one of the most celebrated private libraries and art collections in Regency England, dies, she leaves all of her property—including a manor house on the English Coast—to four strangers: bespectacled and rational Miss Ivy Wareham; awkward but brilliant Lady Daphne Forsyth; scandalous and beautiful Miss Sophia Hastings; and curvy wallflower Miss Gemma Hastings. Beginning with Ready Set Rogue, Manda Collins sweeps her readers into a thrilling mystery when Ivy Wareham and Quill Beachamp, Marquess of Kerr, learn that his aunt was murdered…and Ivy is the killer’s next target. Can Quill save the woman he loves before it’s too late?

Manda Collins

Manda Collins grew up on a combination of Nancy Drew books and Jane Austen novels, and her own brand of Regency romantic suspense is the result. An academic librarian by day, she investigates the mysteries of undergraduate research at her alma mater, and holds advanced degrees in English Lit and Librarianship. Her debut novel, How to Dance with a Duke spent five weeks on the Nielsen Bookscan Romance Top 100 list, was nominated for an RT Reviewer's Choice Award for best debut historical romance, and finaled in the Gayle Wilson Award of Excellence contest. Both How to Entice an Earl and Why Dukes Say I Do were selected for inclusion in Eloisa James's Reading Romance column. Her latest book, Why Earls Fall in Love, a February 2014 release, was called "sparkling romance" by Publishers Weekly and is set in Bath, England, one of her favorite cities in the world.
