  • Do you like love stories with a spunky heroine and a sweet goofball hero?Graphic: "Cover to be revealed" for The Worst Duke in the World by Lisa Berne (Avon Books)
  • How about a love story featuring a surprise identity, a food duel, a smelly ruin and a smoldering viscount?
  • And what about a story with a cute pug named Snuffles, a horribly grumpy cat and a magnificent award-winning pig?
  • How about a budding romance between a hero and heroine that might be quashed by family opposition? Romeo and Juliet, say, but of course with a more cheerful outcome?

If yes to the above, then I think you’ll enjoy The Worst Duke in the World

Ooh la la!

In the next chapter I’m going to write, my heroine will be wearing a gown rather like this one . . . as she swans about a luxurious gaming hell in Regency-era London. I can hardly wait to write it. :)

Fellow spud-lovers!

If, like me, you enjoy potatoes, this is going to be a REALLY hard question.

You can only have THREE of these yummy dishes. Which will it be?

Now, excuse me while I go foraging for a snack. This question is making me hungry. :)

And the winner is . . .

The other day I asked for input in naming a character in the book I’m currently writing, and got so many helpful replies! The choices were Frederick, Walter, Simon and Edward, and the #1 name for my icky smarmy duke is . . .

Close behind was Simon, with Walter a distant third, and Edward garnering the fewest votes of all.

Just so you know . . . the icky Frederick is *not* my hero! He’s a secondary character who will of course come by his just desserts. :)

My warmest thanks to all who helped out!
