READY SET ROGUE
by Manda Collins
From the bestselling author of The Lords of Anarchy series, comes the exciting first installment of Manda Collins’ new Studies in Scandal series: READY SET ROGUE (St. Martin’s Paperbacks; January 3, 2017; $7.99; 978-1-250-10986-6). Collins is back in the Regency era with a passionate, yet unexpected romance that comes in the wake of a thrilling murder mystery.   

When scholarly Miss Ivy Wareham receives word that she’s one of four young ladies who have inherited Lady Celeste Beauchamp’s estate with a magnificent private library, she packs her trunks straightaway. Unfortunately, Lady Celeste’s nephew, the rakish Quill Beauchamp, Marquess of Kerr, is determined to interrupt her studies one way or another...

Bequeathing Beauchamp House to four bluestockings—no matter how lovely they are to look at—is a travesty, and Quill simply won’t have it. But Lady Celeste’s death is not quite as straightforward as it first seemed…and if Quill hopes to solve the mystery behind her demise, he’ll need Ivy’s help. Along the way, he is surprised to learn that bookish Ivy stirs a passion and longing that he has never known. This rogue believes he’s finally met his match—but can Quill convince clever, skeptical Ivy that his love is no fiction?

Don't miss Ready Set Rogue, the first in Manda Collins' new series set in Regency England!


I am in love with this series because the woman are so smart. Not only are they smart but each of them is gifted in different areas and their differences keep this story extremely fascinating and fast paced. With the addition of humor via Daphne's character the reader will find this an amusing and fun read.

Quill and Ivy's interaction are like a tug of war over who will be in control. Quill the poor man doesn't know what to make of Ivy's intelligence and he spends much of his time trying to staying out of trouble with her by saying the wrong thing. But honestly he is very quick to learn his lesson and soon those two have the reader going around in circles as they chase clues to his aunt's death.


There are numerous secondary characters that add lots of drama and spice to the story. Each of them could have an interesting story and I can't wait to see if the author takes these other characters further in other books to this new series.


This book is like a mystery murder story with very intelligent women, two hot men and lots of fun along the way. Don't get me wrong this is not a frivolous read but a brilliantly executed story leading into more books to this series. I can't wait for the next book and it looks like it may involve Daphne and the Duke.


 Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.



AUTHOR BIO: Manda Collins is the author of The Lords of Anarchy series, which includes Good Earl Gone Bad and A Good Rake is Hard to Find, as well as several other Regency-set romances. She spent her teen years wishing she’d been born a couple of centuries earlier, preferably in the English countryside.

When she’s not writing, she’s helping other people use books, as an academic librarian.
