    1. Jasper Grey has shrugged off the responsibilities of his birth, and most of the proper behavior expected from a man in Victorian society: working as an actor when he’ not out living the life of an unrepentant scoundrel with drink, damsels and debauchery. Blessed with good looks, charm and a glib tongue, he’s not interested in assuming the mantle of ‘proper gentleman’ and his two day celebration of his most recent birthday was full of all he loved, including drink. But his responsibilitie [...]

All conclusions are my own responsibility and I was not compensated for this review.What’s it About? Super sensible Sophia spends her time doing research for her lady detective novels all while projecting an image of a proper lady. She doesn’t want anyone to tempt her into behaving scandalously, especially her brother’s friend Jasper Grey bu [...]

    3. I received a copy of this title to read and review for Wicked Reads 5 Stars A Study in Scoundrels is the second installment in the Romancing the Rules series. I adored the first in the series, and enjoyed this almost as much. Now that Sophia's brother is married and their little sister is away at school, her life includes taking care of someone else's house, family, needs and wants. She doesn't want to be the family's spinster sister for life. The writer is looking for a husband to spend her lif [...]

    4. After two nights of debauchery celebrating his birthday, cold reality comes knocking at Jasper Grey’s door. A friend from the past informs him that his seventeen year-old sister Liddy is missing, she might be with a man, and the whole sordid episode must, understandably, remain hush-hush. How will Grey ever find his sister if he can’t even alert the authorities? Sophia Ruthven is fond of detective stories, she has even started to write her own, but she is also the co-author of a rejuvenated [...]

    5. I did not read the first book of this series, but you can bet you knickers that I will be going back to read it after reading this hair-raising race across England and Sophia. She seems to be the proper English lady but she did some things she ought not do. I found her fun and a bit exciting. She knew her own mind and knew what was the right thing to do. She just did not always do the right things. There was just something about Grey that had me on his side from the very beginning. I could under [...]

    6. This was fun, and engaging. Easy to read this without having read book 1. Looking forward to reading more from this series and author!

    8. Book Review For: 'A Study in Scoundrels' by Christy Carlyle 'A Study in Scoundrels' by Christy Carlyle is book Two in the "Romancing the Rules" series. This is the story of Sophia Ruthven and Jasper Grey. I have read the previous book but fell this can easily be a standalone book.

She was a strong character that knew sh [...]

    10. Originally post on the blog What the Cat Read.As the second book in Carlyle’s Romancing the Rules series, I enjoyed this book much more than the first, and I’m looking forward to continuing this series as more books come out. Fans of Carlyle’s novels and of historical romances will want to add this title to their lists of books to read in the coming weeks.I’ve wanted Sophia’s story ever since I met her in Rules for a Rogue, so I was excited to learn more about her in this novel, and I [...]

    11. I’m reluctantly DNF-ing this book for two main reasons: my lack of interest in the nonsensical storyline(s) and the absence of any chemistry between the main couple.The focal point of the plot was Grey’s search for his runaway sister Liddy, and it seemed Sophia just happened to be there to go along for the ride. This ‘leads thrown together and sparks fly’ situation has always worked for me in the past but for some reason, it didn’t work here. To me it almost read like insert hero A and [...]

    12. **Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of this book.**A scoundrel needs help from a lady and gets so much more in return!Grey is a titled gentleman but don't you dare remind him of this fact. He's content to live out his life as an actor, putting on a facade for the public and drinking away his misery behind the scenes. His life is filled with women who know the score. He isn't looking for a marriage.Sophia wants nothing but a marriage. She won't settle for anything less. She's even so de [...]

    14. A dynamite 5 Stars for Christy Carlyle's A Study in Scoundrel's! This series just keeps getting better! Here we meet Sophia Ruthven who is a pirm and proper young miss, and secretly she loves a good mystery and writes mysteries. However, she has no desire for a real mystery and she definitely has no desire for Jasper Grey, the Earl of Stanhope.

    15. A tale of a Aristocratic Rogue Actor who follows no rules but his own and a young Lady who has lived by a set of rules that she grew up with. Add in a runaway sister and a chase that covers remote parts of England and you have an adventurous romp with a wonderful mystery, enough action to have you turning the pages and a compelling, sensual and heartwarming love.I really enjoyed this book. There are splendid characters from the first book in the series, which I haven't read yet but will be sure [...]

    16. A 5* read!Jasper Grey has a mystery to solve. His little sister Liddy has disappeared and Sophia, who writing her first female detective novel, volunteers to help. A STUDY IN SCOUNDRELS is the 2nd book in Christy Carlysle's Romancing the Rules series and it's a fantastic read. I'm already looking forward to the next in the series, How to Woo a Wallflower. Until then, I look forward to reading the first book in the series, Rules for a Rogue. I read this as a standalone and had no problems. This s [...]

    17. Our hero is running from his childhood demons. He is hiding himself in dishonor and debauchery until he needs to find someone. As he begins to search he finds that he needs and wants some help from a fetching blonde beauty. I loved the storyline and the characters. I fully understood them and their decisions. There were allusions to the previous book, but it still read perfectly as a stand-alone. A great choice for any historical romance lover to pick up.

    18. This was such a cute book! I loved Sophia and Grey's relationship and the "mystery" that needed to be solved. This was the first book I've ever read by the author but I plan on reading more!

    19. Ok folks settle in, this story is a bit madcap.Sophia, who we saw in RULES FOR A ROGUE trying desperately to get her brother Kit to do the right thing, returns in fine form. Released from the hell of etiquette rules the family lived under, Sophia (who still finds comfort in some of those rules) is working on her first lady detective story while pondering marriage to a man she found in the paper.In walks Jasper, well sort of, with a mystery he needs solved (where the deuce his sister Liddy disapp [...]

    20. I adored this book. We met both Sophia and Grey in the first book Rules for a Rogue. Sophia was Kit's younger sister while Grey was his best friend. From the moment they met in the first book I just knew they'd be fascinating to read about.By all accounts, Sophia and Grey were polar opposites. And truthfully I think that was the absolute best part of the book. It kept things interesting, but also it allowed the two of them the room to grow and adapt into better versions of themselves as the stor [...]

    21. Posted on What I'm ReadingWho doesn't love a scoundrel hero? Seriously, they make the best heroes to read. At the beginning you see the potential the hero has, and you start to wonder what's going to make him change. You can only go up, or at least you hope. So, we have Jasper Grey who is a scoundrel of the first order. Technically, he's a the second son who happens to inherit his brother's title due to circumstance. Anyway, still living a dissolute life when his cousin's wife asks for his help [...]

    22. The setup: Jasper Grey is an actor, rake, and reluctant lord, who has fully embraced his dissolute lifestyle and more or less turned his back on his duties after a traumatic event in his past. But when his sister goes missing, he's forced into actiond into proximity with Sophia Ruthven, his friend's sister. Sophia is a proper ladyr the most part. She's a writer, after all, and doesn't turn down opportunities for "research." Which is how she ends up in a scoundrel's study and encounters Jasper wh [...]

    23. How to be a proper lady and a novelistSophie writes Mysteries but she's also a proper lady gray needs help finding his sister this was an enjoyable book I like the way they played off each other can't wait to read the next one in the series !

    24. The first thing that I noticed about this novel was how it feels different than the first in the series, Rules for a Rogue. Even though Jasper Grey certainly falls into that category and Sophia does have a run in with a few scoundrels within the pages, it felt a little less about proving oneself to be something else and more of a romantic adventure. While Rules for a Rogue was about two people learning who they are in their new lives (which is still pertinent here), A Study in Scoundrels takes u [...]

    25. Haaaah!! gw ude ngetik banyaaakk trs listriknya kedip, mulai lagi deh mustinya gw baca dari buku 1 sih, biar bisa baca interaksi awal Grey sama Sophia, sampai Kit (hero buku 1, kakaknya Sophia dan temen deketnya Grey) kasih warning ke Grey buat gak liatin Sophia, ngajak ngobrol, atau mikir macem-macem yg malah bikin Grey mikir macem-macem liat Sophia yg proper banget ehehehe Setting ceritanya tu setelah Kit - Ophelia merit, dan memutuskan buat stay di London buat ngurusin bisnis keluarga, Sophia [...]

    26. I really enjoyed this story by Christy Carlyle. Ms. Carlyle is a new author for me so I wasn’t sure what to expect when I read this book. I liked the characters very much and even though this was the second book in the series, I didn’t feel like I was missing anything. I think watching the characters find out who they could be when they really fell in love with someone else was my favorite part. Jasper Grey may be the Earl of Stanhope’s heir, but he wants nothing to do with the title. We l [...]

    27. He’s a reprobate, considered worthless by his family, living life to excess – just the way he wants it….he’s filled with guilt. Until the day Jasper Grey’s, future Earl of Stanhope, sister goes missing. Now the race is on to find her before too much damage is done to her reputation but where to begin.

Till that fateful day that changed his life for ever.Jasper has been racked with guilt he's turned to a life of sin and debauchery knowing in his heart that a man such as he-being the cause for his brothers death- is not worth being loveduntil Sophia Ruthven the prim and always proper by the book but oh so bewitching and hazardous to his hear [...]

    29. *I was gifted a copy from the author.I loved the first book in this series and loved this one! I was hooked from the start and the mystery of Liddy was weaved throughout perfectly so I couldn't guess at anything. I loved the traveling and how something always was happening. When they went to his family you realize why he has ran from his title and you love him more. Her housekeeper was a favorite of mine especially in the end when they were getting ready. The scenes with the doctor were favorit [...]
