One for the Rogue
Studies in Scandal #4
“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?”
As the fourth book in the series, I came into this novel having been introduced to both the hero and heroine. I’m not 100% sure, but this maybe the last book of the series as it is about the last remaining heiress.
Overall this was a pretty solid romance, not my favorite of the series, but still intriguing in its own right. I job major desires to become a paleontologist from this one, which marks it as very unique to me. Additionally, there were some very steamy scenes, one which involves a closet.
I fully recommend this series to historical romance fans!
About the Author
“Manda Collins spent her teen years wishing she’d been born a couple of centuries earlier, preferably in the English countryside. Time travel being what it is, she resigned herself to life with electricity and indoor plumbing, and read lots of books. An affinity for books led to a graduate degree in English, followed by another in Librarianship. By day, she works as an academic librarian at a small liberal arts college, where she teaches college students how to navigate the tangled world of academic research. A native of coastal Alabama, Manda lives in the house her mother grew up in with two cats, sometimes a dog, sometimes her sister, and always lots of books.”
I received this book from the publisher, via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.
