Engaged to the Earl: The Penhallow Dynasty


Lisa Berne

FROM THE BOOK JACKET: A spirited debutante--a brash adventurer--the perfect fiancé--and good intentions gone terribly, deliciously bad. The Penhallow Dynasty continues in this sparkling Regency romp!

Christopher Beck came striding into a glamorous London drawing-room and can't believe his eyes. The last time he'd seen Gwendolyn Penhallow, she was a dreamy, strong-willed girl with a wild imagination, and now she's a beautiful and beguiling young lady...who's engaged to Society's darling the Earl of Westenbury. Christopher had fled England to seek adventure elsewhere. Has he found it here too--the most delightful adventure of his life?

Gwendolyn is sure she's betrothed to the most wonderful man in the world. But then, shockingly, Christopher Beck shows up. Nobody has heard from him in years--and not only he is very much alive, he's also sinfully attractive, blithely unconventional, and disturbingly fun to be with. Which wouldn't be a problem, except for the fact that she's, well, promised to another. And just what on earth is she going to do about it?

Lisa BerneABOUT 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.
