“Graceful, lyrical, and charming”

Wow, what a lovely review from Kirkus for Engaged to the Earl!

“A sophisticated, elegantly written study on character and love . . . the subtle comparison of the quick ‘love at first sight’ romance versus the slow-building, deep-rooted love between characters is lovely and satisfying. Graceful, lyrical, and charming.”

“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.

Inspiration!

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.
