Worst Duke is “a triumph”!

Wow! A starred review from Booklist for The Worst Duke in the World!

Coming your way January 12!

After discovering a long-lost letter from Titus Penhallow to her grandmother Charity, penniless orphan Jane Kent is suddenly introduced to a world of material comforts when she becomes the newest member of the Penhallow family. To fill in the gaps in her education, Jane begins taking lessons from the local vicar, who is also tutoring Wakefield Farr, the young son of Anthony Farr, the duke of Radcliffe. After his last disastrous marriage, Anthony has vowed never to wed again, yet much to his surprise, Anthony quickly finds himself falling for the refreshingly different Jane. There are pigs, pumpkins, and pamphlets, oh my! And a charming, fairy tale-like sensibility powering the latest blissfully romantic addition to Berne’s Penhallow series, following Engaged to the Earl (2020). Filled with endearingly quirky characters, plenty of droll wit, and a number of clever literary grace notes, including a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it homage to the most perfect porcine-inspired piece of children’s literature ever written, this is a transporting, transcendent triumph.

The Worst Duke in the World is available in print, ebook and audio. Want to preorder? Click here to go to the Avon Books site and see all your ordering options!

For your reading pleasure!

Chapter 1 of The Worst Duke in the World is now available on my website! I’m verrrrrrry excited to introduce you to my hero Anthony Farr, the Duke of Radcliffe, as well as to his extremely grumpy sister Margaret and his lively 8-year-old son Wakefield. Too, you’ll meet my heroine Jane Kent, and you’ll also see two familiar characters from my previous books: the indomitable Penhallow matriarch Henrietta and her grandson Gabriel, who are in for a big surprise . . .

At last! . . .

. . . My family and I are in our new house and (somewhat) settled. It was a drawn-out, grueling experience, but we’ve finally been reunited with all our stuff and are now busy unpacking, organizing, putting up art, etc. And every time I look at our view to the back, I’m so happy that it all seems very worthwhile. :)

In short, I’m a busy bee, and you’ll be hearing more from me a bit further down the road. :)
