Two rivals join forces to solve a mystery, but might just find love, in One for the Rogue, the next thrilling novel in the Studies in Scandal series by Manda Collins.
LOVE IS THE GREATEST DISCOVERY OF ALL
Geologist Gemma Hastings has no interest in pursuing romance—and no patience for Lord Cameron Lisle, an esteemed fossil hunter who has a way of always honing in on her territory. . .annoyingly handsome though he may be. But when a shocking attack puts Gemma in very real danger, she may have to accept Lisle’s offers of protection. Even if that means entering into a dangerous flirtation. . .
Lisle was once amused by Gemma’s dedication to her work. But now that he understands how much he’s underestimated her—a woman whose beauty is matched only by her genius—Lisle is desperate to prove his respect…and prove himself worthy of her. But is he too late? A bitter rival, desperate to steal Gemma’s scientific findings, is still at-large. Can Lisle help uncover the culprit and keep her safe—forever, in his loving arms?
“Plenty of pleasure.”—RT Book Reviews
This story was packed with a delicious amount of intrigue, drama, deceit, murder, a love-hate romance and fascinating characters. Beautifully written with likable characters that will capture your attention and take you on a journey you will not forget.
I couldn’t put One For The Rogue down. The characters are fabulously crafted and gloriously complicated, who live, breathe, and jump off the pages and into your heart. The author balances the dark with a light witty humor, as well as a sexual tension that adds sizzle to many scenes. What a fabulous storyteller. Lovers of historical fiction could hardly do better than Manda Collins.
I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Two people, Gemma and Cam come together due to their love of fossils but not of each other. As Gemma has sworn never to marry and Cam wants a bride who is biddable their is no romance between them but things change as they are thrown together, more and more. There is a HEA but not before there is a thief of a fossil, a murder, a pretend marriage and an attempted murder. The book is a great read and I would highly recommend it. I received a copy of this book thru Netgalley.
Smart, sexy historical romance
Smart, sexy historical romance with sides of murder and science
Amanda Collins' One for the Rogue was a wonderful addition to the Studies in Scandal series.
I liked watching the dynamic between Gemma and Cameron evolve. I think they were a great fit. The background story about fossils was interesting as was the murder subplot.
