“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)

“Prepare to be swept away!”

So happy to share with you these kind words of praise from a fellow writer I admire so much — the wildly talented Lenora Bell, author of the acclaimed How the Duke Was Won and If I Only Had a Duke. Here’s what Lenora has to say about my own You May Kiss the Bride: 

Graphic: Lenora Bell on You May Kiss the Bride (Avon Books, April 2017): "Prepare to be swept away! Lisa Berne's sensuous, richly imaginative debut will delight and satisfy you. I savored every page!"

I’m super-excited to read Lenora’s third book in the Disgraceful Dukes series, Blame It on the Duke, which releases April 17th (soon!). More about Lenora here.
