Manda Collins spent her teen years wishing she'd been born a couple of centuries earlier, preferably in the English countryside. Time travel being what it is, she resigned herself to life with electricity and indoor plumbing, and read lots of books. When she's not writing, she's helping other people use books, as an academic librarian.
"Witty and smart, Collins' prose flows smoothly as she merges a charming, compassionate love story with gothic suspense....Add strong pacing and depth of emotion, and there's no doubt this is a winner." --Top Pick, 41/2 stars, RT Book Reviews "Collins has a deft touch with characterization, and she expertly weaves a thrilling thread of danger throughout the story. Why Dukes Say I Do is highly recommended for readers who enjoy their historical romances with a generous soupcon of suspense." --Reader to Reader Reviews
