For the first time in one volume, The Rogue Goes On combines two of Manda Collins’s novels in the critically acclaimed Studies in Scandal series.

In Wallflower Most Wanted, Miss Sophia Hastings, a dedicated painter, is more concerned with finding the right slant of light than in finding Mr. Right. But when an overheard conversation hints at danger for another local artist, Sophia is determined to get involved. Even if it means accepting help from the impossibly good-looking Reverend Lord Benedick Lisle, who insists on joining her investigation—and threatens to capture her heart.

In One for the Rogue, 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 danger, can Lisle help uncover the culprit and keep her safe—forever, in his loving arms?
