If you’ve been waiting for Gemma and Lord Cameron Lisle’s story in the Studies in Scandal series, your wait is over! Happy book release day to Manda Collins and everyone in Romancelandia who has been enjoying this delightful historical romance series (with a touch of mystery and intrigue!) One for the Rogue is a fabulous book to end this series. Here’s an overview to whet your appetite.
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?
Here’s what readers and reviewers are saying about One for the Rogue…
“A fine conclusion to a Regency series dedicated to celebrating the intellectual and artistic achievements of women.” – Kirkus Reviews
“Readers who like their Regency historicals smart, sexy, and served up with plenty of dry wit and a generous dollop of intrigue will find One for the Rogue, the latest sparkling addition to Collins’ Studies in Scandal series, to be a rare find.” —Booklist
“…the characters were lovable, the sexy times intense and the mystery kept me riveted.” —Stacey is Sassy (Goodreads)
“This was a delightful read and I didn’t want to put it down once I’d read the first page. Well, actually, I didn’t put it down — I read it straight through and enjoyed every minute of it.” — Barbara Rogers (Goodreads)
“This was such a fun and lovely historical to read–complete with a murder mystery, a scholarly and enigmatic matriarch, a hate-to-love romance, and an elusive fossil.” — Angie (Goodreads)
Tennessee Takedown introduced readers to the fictional town of Destiny, Tennessee and the sexy, funny detectives and part-time SWAT team of five alpha men and one kick-butt woman. Readers loved it. Tennessee Takedown won the prestigious Daphne du Maurier Award of Excellence. And to this day, it’s still my best-selling Harlequin Intrigue.
Fabulous reader response to Tennessee Takedown resulted in the creation of an entire series in 2017 and 2018. The fifth and final installment, SWAT Standoff, releases on June 19. It’s been a fun, wild ride and saying goodbye to this series is bittersweet. I’ll miss the heroes and heroines of Destiny, Tennessee. But as I learned after Tennessee Takedown‘s release, you never know where a book – or a series – might lead. One day perhaps another new series may intersect with this one and I’ll revisit the SWAT team of Destiny, Tennessee. You never know!
A SWAT team vanishes.
Can two partners put aside their differences to save them?

But before they can resolve their differences, they discover that the rest of their team has been kidnapped by an unknown assailant. Now as they race to rescue the small Tennessee town’s real heroes, they share a growing mutual trust…and a hot, life-changing connection.
