Which name?

I’m looking for input! A character in the book I’m currently writing — the sixth in my Penhallow Dynasty series — needs a good first name. He’s an icky smarmy duke (but don’t worry, he’ll get what’s coming to him). What is your #1 choice?

“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.

I am very pleased to let you know that there’s going to be an adorable pug in my forthcoming book The Worst Duke in the World.

Also, as it turns out, there’s a character who looks a lot like this. And he’s not even the hero!
