“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.

“This was just the book I needed”

So honored by Seduced By A Book’s lovely review for The Worst Duke in the World!

This was a sweet and lovely romance which slowly builds from a budding friendship to something much more. . . . I loved that whileCover image: The Worst Duke in the World by Lisa Berne (Avon Books) Jane was out of her element, she managed to hold her own with the ton, and knew her self-worth. I liked how she made Anthony a better version of himself, and I adored the scenes which included Wakefield, the duke’s son. There was a ton of humor as well as a nod or two to other books. See if you can find the Charlotte’s Web reference. With all the craziness and madness going on in the world, this was just the book I needed. The romance in it simmered for a while before coming to a slow boil. On the Lisarenee Romance Rating Scale, this one earned a FAN rating–the temperature in the room seems to have suddenly gone up a couple of degrees and a fan would be nice. This one left me with a grin on my face and a smile in my heart.
