Description

Duke with Benefits continues the Studies in Scandal series where four women are left with a mysterious inheritance. This time a hidden cipher, a lost treasure, and an unexpected love take residence in Beauchamp House. All Lady Daphne Forsythe wants to do is search the library for clues to the Jacobite Cipher: a mathematical problem that holds the secret to great riches. Unfortunately, her plans to search alone are continually thwarted by the handsome Mr. Dalton Beauchamp, nephew to her benefactress and a distraction she hadn't counted on. Despite Daphne's vows to keep Dalton at arm's length, his knowledge of numbers has Daphne doing something she never calculated - falling in love. But Daphne and Dalton learn that there's more to the puzzle than meets the eye...and someone is willing to kill to keep that secret hidden forever.

About Manda Collins

Manda Collins is the author of several books, including Ready Set Rogue and The Lords of Anarchy series. She spent her teen years wishing she'd been born a couple of centuries earlier, preferably in the English countryside. Time travel being what it is, she resigned herself to life with electricity and indoor plumbing, and read lots of books. When she's not writing, she's helping other people use books, as an academic librarian.

Review quote

"A delight to see a classic Regency hero so smitten with a truly unusual heroine. Driven by multiple passionate scenes and the hunt for a murderer, it's a swift and intense read. A bluestocking Regency romance of unusual intensity." -- Kirkus Reviews"Intense romance." -- Publishers Weekly"The romance is lovely, with both hero and heroine falling into love the way people do in life outside of books -- in a slow tumble and a sharp drop, all at once." -- New York Times bestselling author Sarah MacLean"This is a terrific historical romance...I definitely have to recommend." --Night Owl Reviews (Top Pick!)"A delightful book full of romance, intrigue, and mystery, Duke with Benefits should be on your to-buy list for July!" -- Romance Reviews Today"A go-to for historical romance." -- Heroes & Heartbreakers"A delicious romance with a curious mystery thrown in to spice things up!" -- Fresh Fiction "This is a marvelous murder/mystery with lots of fun and danger.
