    Historical Romance

    Ready Set Rogue by Manda Collins A Studies in Scandal Novel #1 Quill, Marquess of Kerr, believes his recently deceased aunt was duped by four females into bequeathing her estate to them. Quill sets off to make things “right” and in so doing steps on a few toes, including those of Ivy the heroine of this story. The other three bluestockings are introduced along with the cousin and sister of Quill, a murderer provides a mystery to be solved and of course there is the romance between Quill and Ivy that takes place. From me this gets a three. It was okay but did not wow me. The meet-cute was so-so, I did not feel a true connection between Quill & Ivy or how he so easily and quickly compromised her, the conversations were a bit stilted between the couple and perhaps it was a wee bit predictable. That said, I did enjoy the story and am very curious about Daphne the mathematician. She intrigued me more than any of the other bluestockings. This is the first book I have ready by this author and I would be willing to read another since so many have rated her books highly. Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for the copy of this boo. This is my honest review. 3 Stars

    Studies In Scandal #1

    Torquil Beauchamp the Marquis of Kerr is rushing to the home of his dead aunt, determined to throw out the upstart women who his aunt left the property to. They must have schemed in some way to persuade her to leave it to them rather than the family. After a delay and a chance meeting he finds there is a lot more behind his aunt's actions. Miss Aphrodite Wareham (Ivy) is one of the four blue stockings who are to inherit the wonderful house and scholarly collections from a woman who wanted educated young ladies to be able to continue their studies. When Ivy gets there she finds special instructions from the Lady she had never met. A fascinating historical romance with an intriguing murder, mystery thrown in. You can't help but be drawn in to the lives of all the wonderful strong characters. Lots of humour, scandalous behaviour and a touch of danger make this a great read. I loved every page and can't wait to read the next in the series.

    Ready Set Rogue

    I'm going to be blunt, I'm giving this three stars because I feel like it was a good idea but could have been done better. It's called Ready Set Rogue right?...So you would think that the main guy would be rakish and a player or something...but he's not, he's a gentleman and that in itself dissapointed me simply because it didn't match the title and that's kind of important. Also, the cover...she doesn't match the girl in the story either.Ivy wears glasses and is curvy so I would like to know how the cover is supposed to make me connect with her. Moving on from those points, the romance felt rushed and more insta-lust to insta-love than I care for and the mystery was what was keeping me intrigued, until the characters came out made themselves known before even being discovered and gave it all up. So yeah... I'm pretty sure this story could be WAY better if given more thought, hence the three stars. I didn't love it, but I didn't absolutely hate it either. *I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book from Netgalley. I was not compensated for my review, and I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed here is my own.*

    love, mystery, passion

    This is a wonderful story of Ivy, the daughter of an independent scholar, and Quill, the Marquess of Kerr. Thrown together by accident, they are both en route to his late aunt's home; she to inherit and he to stop it. Soon after arriving, Ivy learns her patroness died under mysterious circumstances from a letter. She and Quill are to uncover the mystery. Through their search for the truth, the bonds that tie them together increase as they start falling for each other. A delightful story of an unexpected love through mishaps, a little danger, sexual tension, and determination. I highly recommend this story! I was provided a NetGalley by the publisher. The opinion is my own.
