“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.

In case you missed it from my recent newsletter: I’m envisioning the hero of the book I’m currently writing — The Worst Duke in the World — looking like a combination of these two delightful fellas.

The Magic of Change

I’m so honored to be a part of Read-a-Romance-Month 2019! Here’s a little tidbit from my essay on love and the magic of change:

Graphic: Read-a-Romance-Month logoRomance novels — love stories — can, and do, portray their share of dark matter. But within them, like a bright skein woven throughout a dappled fabric, is an optimistic and unshakable faith in change. That it’s not only possible, but achievable, and it happens just when we’re just about to lose hope. There’s no need to fear, though. See? The heroine and the hero have bettered themselves, they’re changed, their trajectories have met and are firmly joined. 

See? Change; connection; hopefulness. Joy. Magic.

Here it is: love. Magic.

Maybe for us, too. Why not?

Plus, there’s a Q&A, book/author recommendations, and a giveaway! Copies of You May Kiss the Bride and The Laird Takes a Bride, the first two books in my Penhallow Dynasty series, are up for grabs.

Giveaway!

Would you like a chance to win one of two copies of The Laird Takes a Bride?

It’s the second book of my Penhallow Dynasty series, in which Alasdair Penhallow, laird of his clan, is forced to end his rollicking bachelorhood thanks to an ancient decree which requires him to wed — or die. Fate serves up Miss Fiona Douglass, prickly and strong-willed, and just as reluctant as Alasdair to give up her freedom. It’s hardly an auspicious start to a marriage. But there are surprises in store for each of them . . .
