Lisa Berne’s Penhallow Dynasty continues with a pair of star-crossed childhood friends who meet again years later—and find love where they least expect it . . .


Katherine Brooke may be a fabulously wealthy heiress, but she’s trapped, a pawn in her parents’ ruthless game to marry her into the nobility. Then Captain Hugo Penhallow—so charming, as handsome as a Greek god—comes into her life once more, and suddenly she sees a chance to be free.


As a Penhallow, his is one of the highest names in the land, but still his family is facing ruin. So Katherine boldly proposes an exchange: his name for her money. But only if Hugo understands it’s merely a practical arrangement, and that she’s not surrendering herself entirely.


Back from eight years in America and determined to give his younger siblings a better life, Hugo agrees. He’s never fallen in love, so why not? Yet neither of them guesses that this marriage will become far, far more than they ever dreamed of . . .

About the Author

Lisa Berne read her first Georgette Heyer novel at fourteen — it was the effervescent Lady of Quality — and was instantly captivated. Later, she was a graduate student, a grant writer, and a teacher — and now writes historical romance for Avon Books, with her stories set mostly in Regency-era Britain. She lives with her family in the Pacific Northwest.

Praise For…

“Berne’s third Penhallow title maintains the exquisite writing, lush emotion, and complex characters we’ve come to expect [...] An elegant, poignant, and joyful romance and a must-read for Regency fans.”
Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“Regency fans will love this forthright, intellectual heroine and affable, resourceful hero.”
Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Lisa Berne takes all the classic elements of a Regency romance and turns them upside down. The most charming surprise is the hero…who stands out from the legion of Regency leading men before him by being kind.”

“Berne’s light touches of humor (provided by the Penhallow parrot) and realistic dialogue bring the characters and atmosphere of the era to life. There will be a smile on many a reader’s lips by the satisfying HEA.”
