Review of Duke with Benefits by Manda Collins

The second book in the "Studies in Scandal Series" is a delightful read.  I am so glad Maitland and Daphne got their own story.  This story has a great mystery, a treasure hunt,  murder,  mayhem and a really nasty villain.

One of four young ladies to inherit an estate, Daphne is the mathematician who loves anything to do with numbers.  When a cipher that will lead to lost gold is found Daphne is the only one who can solve it.   She has always been an outsider to the world that she has lived in her whole life.  She doesn't mean to be socially awkward but her straightforward approach tends to rub people the wrong way.

Until she meets Dalton Maitland,  Dalton seems to understand her and is very attracted to her and would like to have a future with Daphne.  Daphne is perfectly willing to become Dalton's lover but she has no interest in matrimony.  Dalton will use all his Dukely wiles to convince Daphne to marry him.

Manda writes a fast paced exciting story that will have you reading non-stop.  Her characters are wonderfully witty and intelligent.  If you like adventure and a truly gorgeous love story, this is your kind of book.
