THE LATEST FROM LISA BERNE

On visual images for Livia & Gabriel

I’ve been asked if I had a visual impression of my protagonists while writing You May Kiss the Bride. I was pretty clear about Gabriel Penhallow. I was sure that he’s really good-looking, but not perfectly handsome. I had in mind somebody rather like the dashing singer Justin Currie:Photo: singer Justin Currie

As for Livia Stuart, I was less sure. I knew she would have a fiery personality, and because I had recently finished rereading Anne of Green Gables, I may have had an image like this in my head (at least in terms of hair color):

And here’s what the brilliant art department at Avon Books came up with:

Cover for YOU MAY KISS THE BRIDE by Lisa Berne (Avon/HarperCollins)

And I couldn’t be any happier. Aren’t my Gabriel and Livia a georgeous couple?
