Ugly Ducklings Trilogy

How to Dance with a Duke, Manda Collins’s debut novel and the first in her Ugly Ducklings Trilogy, spent five weeks on the Nielsen Bookscan Romance Top 100 list. Set in Regency period historical England, this fast-paced romantic-suspense series follows a roving casts of independent, bluestocking women as they try to track down hidden secrets, scandalous rumors, missing friends—or even just a dance would be nice. From the dark underground streets of historical London to its majestic royal ballrooms, from Dukes to Earls, one thing is clear: nothing is more dangerous than unexpected love. “Sexy, thrilling, and romantic,” according to bestselling author Kieran Kramer.
