Praise for The Worst Duke in the World

Review it at Amazon

“Attention, Bridgerton fans: if you’re ready to delve deeper into the world of historical romance, The Worst Duke in the World is a fun place to start.”

“As light as a meringue and as sweet as honey, this romance is deliciously satisfying down to the last drop.”

Booklist Starred Review “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. . . . 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.”
Booklist, starred review

“There’s no other way to describe this fizzy historical romance than enchanting. The wry humor and witty banter explode off the page 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.”

“What this book contains: humor, affection, mutual respect, animals, a consistently amusing child, consent (with regard to kissing and general making out), good food, pretty dresses, a decent amount of end-of-book groveling, discussions about the wives of Henry VIII [and] happy endings all around. . . . A lovely cozy read.”
