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. :)

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!

Which name?

“An extravagant confection of a book”

Of course it’s always absolutely wonderful to receive a glowing review of one’s book, but when one wins the praise of a self-described romance curmudgeon, then . . . wow!

Says the Our Coast Bookmonger:

Image: Engaged to the Earl by Lisa Berne (Avon Books)

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.

Engaged to the Earl is an extravagant confection of a book. Set in the Regency period, it is amusing, detailed and lively. . . .

If you want a story that will make you chuckle, swoon and generally feel warm-hearted, Engaged to the Earl fits the bill.

Want to read the review in its glorious entirety? Click here.

To learn more about Engaged to the Earl, click here to go to the Avon Books/HarperCollins website where you can see all your ordering options, listen to an audiobook sample, and read a long juicy excerpt.
