Booklist Starred Review“Readers who crave romances written with style and substance will cherish Berne’s latest entrancing addition to the Penhallow Dynasty series. The author’s effortlessly elegant writing and impeccably rendered Regency setting are perfectly paired with a full cadre of exquisitely realized characters and a delightfully done friends-to-lovers love story that is fueled by equal measures of sweet charm, sharp wit, and heart-melting sexual chemistry.”

“Jane Austen would approve. Strongly recommended.”
Historical Novel Society

“The beguiling fourth installment of Berne’s Penhallow Dynasty series (after The Bride Takes a Groom) is full of witty banter and sweet romance. . . . This expertly plotted love story is a must-read for Regency fans.”
Publishers Weekly

“A sophisticated, elegantly written study on character and love . . . the subtle comparison of the quick ‘love at first sight’ romance versus the slow-building, deep-rooted love between characters is lovely and satisfying. Graceful, lyrical, and charming.”
Kirkus Reviews

“A charming Regency romp. . . . Humor abounds in Berne’s witty, tongue-in-cheek romance. And her choice to tell the story through multiple viewpoints puts the reader in the center of the action, adding to the fast-paced fun.”

“Over the years, this book reviewer has developed a reputation as a curmudgeonly sort when it comes to romance novels. So imagine my astonishment when I picked up Engaged to the Earl, the fourth book in Spokane author Lisa Berne’s Penhallow Dynasty series, and found myself devouring it like a plateful of bonbons. Nary a cynical thought crossed my mind. Not one dismissive ‘harrumph’ passed my lips. . . . If you want a story that will make you chuckle, swoon and generally feel warm-hearted, Engaged to the Earl fills the bill.”
Oregon Coast Bookmonger

“Exquisitely blends razor-sharp wit, high society mischief and tender romance in the latest standalone installment of the Penhallow Dynasty.”
Bookish Jottings

“In all of the historical novels I have read, I have never encountered such a character like Gwennie. She is bright, kind to a fault, and a breath of fresh air. . . . I loved this friends to lovers historical romance. . . . It was romantic, sweet, and hilarious.”
Urban Book Reviews

“A sweet read full of lighthearted fun.”
