THE WICKED CITY BOOK TOUR
Back in Time with Beatriz Williams
by Lit Lair Lady Karen
Beatriz (pronounced Bee a tris, not Beet riz) is a sucker for old movies and going back in time. I love how she collects stories from all over, researches them, then puts them all together—from her mother-in-law’s kitchen table, to a neighborhood she found interesting, to a haunted cellar. She is also influenced strongly by books she has read.
From the bestselling author of The Lords of Anarchy series, comes the exciting first installment of Manda Collins’ new Studies in Scandal series: Ready Set Rogue
St. Martin’s Press
Release date: January 3, 2017
Collins is back in the Regency era with a passionate, yet unexpected romance that comes in the wake of a thrilling murder mystery.
When scholarly Miss Ivy Wareham receives word that she’s one of four young ladies who have inherited Lady Celeste Beauchamp’s estate with a magnificent private library, she packs her trunks straightaway. Unfortunately, Lady Celeste’s nephew, the rakish Quill Beauchamp, Marquess of Kerr, is determined to interrupt her studies one way or another…
Bequeathing Beauchamp House to four bluestockings—no matter how lovely they are to look at—is a travesty, and Quill simply won’t have it. But Lady Celeste’s death is not quite as straightforward as it first seemed…and if Quill hopes to solve the mystery behind her demise, he’ll need Ivy’s help. Along the way, he is surprised to learn that bookish Ivy stirs a passion and longing that he has never known. This rogue believes he’s finally met his match—but can Quill convince clever, skeptical Ivy that his love is no fiction?
Don’t miss Ready Set Rogue, the first in Manda Collins’ new series set in Regency England!
