Praise for The Redemption of Philip Thane

Review it at Amazon

“An extremely clever and entertaining addition to the canon of ‘rake redemption’ romances, and readers are bound to find it smart, tender and surprisingly sweet.”

Booklist Starred Review “While offering a Regency riff on the movie Groundhog Day, with a dash of Macbeth and pinch of Greek mythology added for good measure, Berne fashions another sublime addition to her Penhallow series, one that is brilliantly enhanced by a stellar cast of characters . . . and generous measures of the author’s wry wit and wondrous sense of whimsy.”

“Copious humor and heart . . . expertly crafted.”
Publishers Weekly

“Sparkling . . . Lisa Berne has created a perfect balance between a fantastical tale and an animated adventure into self-discovery and redemption. She has breathed life into a common theme and married it with intelligent, savvy dialogue and cunning unforgettable characters.” —Reading Rebel Reviews  

“The hero was a real piece of work at the beginning of The Redemption of Philip Thane, so there was no way I was putting the book down! . . . If you like reading about a rake being redeemed and references to mythology, folklore, and Hamlet then this book is for you!”
A Bad Wallflower

“Whether read as a continuation of this wonderful series or a standalone novel, The Redemption of Philip Thane is a delightful romance between two very smart, intriguing, and likeable characters each determined to have their own way. . . . [It] kept me turning the pages late into the night as I had to find out what happens next.”
Fresh Fiction

“There is a lot to love about this book — the premise is a great one, based on a great film. . . . Philip’s turn for the better is not a rapid one; he has to hit rock-bottom before he can rebuild himself. That’s satisfying, and his redemption doesn’t feel feigned. It is an earned change, one which fundamentally reforms him. . . . A fun story.”
