“One of the most exciting new historical writers”

If you’ve been hanging out with me for any length of time, you know that I’m a huge Julia Quinn fan, and that her books have been a major, major inspiration to me. So you can imagine how I felt when she posted this on her Facebook page yesterday:

“Jane Austen would approve”

Wow! What an amazing review for Engaged to the Earl from the Historical Novel Society! 

In this Regency romance, two beautiful people fall in love at first sight and get engaged, only to discover they are not suited. Or at least Gwendolyn

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

Coming your way February 25th, 2020!

Penhallow does, for she is not only beautiful and a member of a highly respected family, but, more importantly, honest and kind. The Earl of Westenbury? Not so much.

By contrast, Gwennie’s childhood friend Christopher Beck is kind, to people and animals both, even if he is not an aristocrat. And unlike the earl, he can be relied upon.

The process by which the pair learn the valuable life lessons that enable them to find happiness together is involving, and it provides an opportunity to comment upon snobbery and various human foibles. There is too a complementary subplot involving Gwennie’s spoiled and selfish cousin Helen. She too falls in love at first sight, but with less success. What distinguishes the book, however, is the characterization, which is marked by the deft use of irony. Jane Austen would approve.

Strongly recommended.

I’m so, so pleased, and also incredibly honored and flattered that the reviewer said, “Jane Austen would approve.” Because . . .

. . . Jane Austen is such an inspiration to me!

(In fact, you’ll find a reference to Persuasion in the story.)

“Graceful, lyrical, and charming”

Wow, what a lovely review from Kirkus for Engaged to the Earl!

“A sophisticated, elegantly written study on character and love . . . the subtle comparison of the quick ‘love at first sight’ romance versus the slow-building, deep-rooted love between characters is lovely and satisfying. Graceful, lyrical, and charming.”
