“A glimmering butterfly dress . . .”

Isn’t this absolutely gorgeous?

According to the description, this “glimmering butterfly dress and matching headdress [were] made by Worth in 1912. Ivory silk charmeuse overlaid with chiffon, bodice and back exquisitely fashioned in butterfly wings glittering with amber beads and iridescent peacock-blue paste jewels. Created for a costume party.”

I don’t write in this era, but a gown like this makes me want to!

“Which door will you open?”

Can I only choose just one? Oh, this is hard! For me it’s a toss-up between Wonderland and Middle Earth . . . with Wonderland, a favorite of mine since childhood, in the lead. :)

“If you love Eloisa James and Tessa Dare . . .”

This is such a fun description of Engaged to the Earl from HarperCollins UK!

Image: cover for Engaged to the Earl by Lisa Berne (Avon Books)If you love Eloisa James and Tessa Dare, you will love Lisa Berne.

Gwendolyn Penhallow is smart, creative, and adventurous — a true Penhallow! She arrives in London for her Season, and quickly finds herself swept off her feet by the handsome Earl of Westenbury. Gorgeous and gallant, she believes she’s fallen head over heels for him. Preparing for her dream marriage, Gwendolyn thinks she is happier beyond her wildest dreams.

But the unexpected arrival of her childhood friend Christopher Beck — unconventional, tough, but tender-hearted — shakes Gwendolyn’s certainty that she’s found her perfect soulmate. At the same time, her cousin Helen seems to like Christopher a bit too much — and Christopher has his own doubts about the rightness of Gwendolyn’s choice, even as he finds that his feelings for her are going beyond just friendship . . .

Engaged to the Earl, the fourth book in my Penhallow Dynasty series, releases in February, in print, ebook, and audio formats. Would you like to preorder? Click here.
