Description

LADY + DUKE = TRUE LOVE?
Lady Daphne Forsyth is a brilliant mathematician with a burning passion for puzzles. When she learns that the library belonging to her benefactress houses the legendary Cameron Cipher—an encrypted message that, once solved, holds the key to great riches—Daphne is on the case. Unfortunately, her race to unlock the cipher's code is continually thwarted by a deliciously handsome distraction she hadn't counted on. . .and cannot resist.
Dalton Beauchamp, the Duke of Maitland, is curious as to why Daphne is spending so much time snooping around his aunt's bookshelves. He's even more intrigued by her bold yet calculating manner: She is unapologetic about her secret quest. . .and the fiery attraction that develops between them both. But how can they concentrate on solving a perplexing enigma once the prospect of true love enters the equation?
"Witty, sensual historical romance that will captivate readers." Romance Junkies
Duke with Benefits is the second in Manda Collins' Studies in Scandal series set in Regency England.

      • bioText: 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. Why Earls Fall in Love, the second book in her Wicked Widows series, was called "sparkling romance" by Publishers Weekly and is set in Bath, England, one of her favorite cities in the world.

        In Collins’s enjoyable second Studies in Scandal Regency (after Ready Set Rogue), a handsome duke falls for a brilliant mathematician. Lady Daphne Forsyth is one of four women who have inherited the manor house of Lady Celeste Beauchamp. Only Daphne knows that the library at Beauchamp House contains the famous Cameron Riddle, which points the way to the elusive treasure said to have been hidden by the head of the Cameron clan near the end of the Jacobite rebellion. Though Daphne is initially unable to find the riddle, she does meet the brother of her chaperone: Dalton Beauchamp, the Duke of Maitland. When Daphne reveals her quest to the other residents and to Dalton, they assist her in her search, which becomes more intense when a man is murdered in Beauchamp House. The long arc of the mystery plot complements the intense romance between Dalton and Daphne. Agent: Holly Root, Waxman Leavell Literary.

        Love is a riddle that even a genius can't solve alone.Most noblewomen would be delighted to find themselves accidentally betrothed to a duke. Not Lady Daphne Forsyth. She's decidedly different from the people around her, no matter how many rules of human behavior she observes and decodes. She'd rather focus on the Cameron Cipher, a legendary puzzle she inherited as part of an unexpected bequest from Lady Celeste Beauchamp, a champion of women's rights who left her house to Daphne and three other bluestockings. But her benefactress's nephew, Dalton Beauchamp, Duke of Maitland, continues to distract her. Despite Daphne's clear preference for mathematics, Dalton can't stop thinking about her, and her blunt honesty only serves to intensify their connection. After an unexpected death in the house, their dangerous hunt to solve the cipher keeps both from noticing what their friends can see: they're in love. Daphne's love of her freedom, however, may be stronger. In the second entry in her Studies in Scandal series, Collins (Ready Set Rogue, 2017) expands the world of Beauchamp House, and the friendship between the four heiresses provides a charming backdrop to the story. Daphne's intelligence and inability to comprehend social interactions are thoughtfully drawn, and it's 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.
