Description

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 . . .

Review quote

"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) "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." -- BookPage "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." -- RT Book Reviews "Now I know which book to bring on a desert island!" -- Fresh Fiction
