“Champagne in book form”!

Oh my goodness, The Worst Duke in the World has received a glowing review in Entertainment Weekly!

There’s no other way to describe this fizzy historical romance than enchanting. The wry humor and witty banter explode off the pageCover image for The Worst Duke in the World by Lisa Berne (Avon Books) from the start. . . . It’s champagne in book form — bubbly, fun, and intoxicating far more quickly than one might anticipate. One gets the sense that Berne likes to have fun and isn’t afraid to let her readers in on the gag. But even with the robust humor, the book is still heartfelt. . . . The Worst Duke in the World is a breezy, fizzy read that will cut through even the darkest winter doldrums.
