“With a skill even Jane Austen might appreciate”

If you’ve been following my blog, you know I’m a big Jane Austen fan. So I was thrilled to hear about these deeply flattering words of praise from the Historical Novel Society.Graphic: "Vacuity, snobbery, thoughtlessness, spitefulness, slavish adherence to convention and superficial appearance: all are neatly skewered with a skill even Jane Austen might appreciate. Definitely recommended to Regency lovers." -Historical Novel Society on You May Kiss the Bride by Lisa Berne (Avon Books)

“A terrific historical romance debut”

Bustin’ my buttons — to employ a charming old-school expression — at this post by Bobbi Dumas on her Kirkus blog. I especially love Ms. Dumas’ comments about my heroine, Livia, and her nemesis Cecily (whose unpleasant machinations never quite work out the way she intends them to).

“A face carved by angels”

Jazzed to see You May Kiss the Bride featured in Barnes & Noble’s sparky Romance Roundup column! I especially like Cristina Merrill’s description of my hero, Gabriel Penhallow, as having “a face carved by angels.” What a gloriously romantic turn of phrase! Here’s the cover if you want to take a peek at that angelic countenance. :)Cover for YOU MAY KISS THE BRIDE by Lisa Berne (Avon/HarperCollins)
