Read Duke with Benefits (Studies in Scandal, #2) Online Free - LADY + DUKE = TRUE LOVE?
Lady Daphne Forsyth is a brilliant mathematician with a burning passion for puzzles. When she learns that the library belonging to her benefactress houses the legendary Cameron Cipher―an encrypted message that, once solved, holds the key to great riches―Daphne is on the case. Unfortunately, her race to unlock the cipher’s code is continually thwarted by a deliciously handsome distraction she hadn’t counted on. . .and cannot resist.
Dalton Beauchamp, the Duke of Maitland, is curious as to why Daphne is spending so much time snooping around his aunt’s bookshelves. He’s even more intrigued by her bold yet calculating manner: She is unapologetic about her secret quest. . .and the fiery attraction that develops between them both. But how can they concentrate on solving a perplexing enigma once the prospect of true love enters the equation?

We’re going on a treasure hunt...
My first “big girl book” was The Treasure Hunters by Enid Blyton. I felt so grown up reading a hardcover book with chapters in it and I still remember feeling very accomplished after finishing it. Straight after finishing, I was consumed with the need...

"I would think that finding a dead man's body in the library would do more damage to Beauchamp House's reputation than the hasty marriages of two of Aunt Celeste's proteges."
"You know full well that sex is far more scandalous than murder."
While my main issue with book one in the Studies in Scanda...

I don't read a lot of romance but I needed something with a happy ending! This is part of a series but I didn't read book 1 and was fine. A bit of a flipped script where the lady is the awkward one who is good at math and the Duke is the one good with people (and always asks for consent.) There i...

I enjoy Historical Romances. I particularly enjoyed Duke With Benefits. I enjoyed the characters. I enjoyed the intrigue. I really enjoyed Lady Daphne.
Now, here was a woman who knew her value, knew her capabilities but had no idea how to act in public. She was brash. When she had something to say...

This is one of the best suspense filled regency romance series I have ever had the pleasure to read. I loved the first book in the series and was eager to read the subsequent books so grabbed the opportunity to read this, via NetGalley, with absolute delight. The background is that four bluestock...

Duke with Benefits by Manda Collins is the second story in her Studies in Scandal series but the first one I’ve read by this author. My reading resolutions for 2017 included reading more historical romances and new to me authors so this accomplishes both tasks nicely, and I’m very happy with this...

I always enjoy Manda Collins books. This is a new series for me, about female scholars who receive an inheritance that allows them to study their interests, and also find love in the process. Daphne is a math scholar who has trouble relating to people, but Dalton is the one man that she finds a c...

Damn.....I really thought I would enjoy Daphne's story :( Quite disappointed I couldn't get into it and I did try to give the book another chance by having a break and coming back to it but no...
