One for the Rogue (Studies in Scandal #4) by Manda Collins: Aha! The “Battle of the Sexes” is alive and well in Regency England! It seems that Lord Cameron Lisle, well-regarded fossil hunter and geologist, is not quite ready to accept geologist Gemma Hastings as his peer.
Gemma is one of four young ladies, considered bluestockings, who has inherited Lady Celeste Beauchamp’s estate. It takes Cam getting to know Gemma better as well as threats to her to enlighten him enough to appreciate Gemma’s personality and abilities. Both of these two characters initially declare that they plan to never marry. Will they feel the same by the end of the story?
This is the fourth book in author Manda Collin’s A Studies in Scandal series. Manda Collins delivers a clear plot along with action and suspense and some sweet love scenes. Her characters are very likeable and remain consistent throughout the series. This is a fun read and one I definitely recommend.
