*Starred Review* Why waste time? As far as Gabriel Penhallow is concerned, the sooner he gets married, the better. Fortunately, Gabriel doesn't have to go to all the bother of selecting a suitable bride, since his formidable grandmother has already taken care of that task for him by choosing the seemingly perfect Cecily Orr. Poised to propose to Cecily at a ball arranged by her parents, Gabriel finds his matrimonial plans upended when he is caught in the garden kissing penniless nobody Livia Stuart instead of remaining inside the ballroom dancing with Cecily. Forced into asking Livia to be his wife, Gabriel vows that theirs will be a marriage in name only, but what Gabriel fails to take into account is that Livia may have a very different idea about the kind of marriage she wants with him. Berne's exceptional romance debut, the first in the Penhallow Dynasty series, will dazzle readers with its irresistible mix of graceful writing tempered with just the right dash of crisp wit, splendidly captured Regency setting and atmosphere, and beautifully nuanced characters.

In Berne's lively and well researched debut Regency romance, Livia Stuart knows that hers is far from a fairy-tale existence. She was orphaned at the age of six in faraway India and summarily packed off to live with her sole English relatives. Her Aunt Bella and Uncle Charles see her only as an expense upon Ealdor Abbey, their ramshackle home in Wiltshire County. Now 18, Livia is no real beauty, has no inheritance and little education, and exists in that strange space between servant and gentry that leaves her completely vulnerable and lacking in prospects for advancement. She has a brief but memorable first encounter with wealthy Gabriel Penhallow; their second meeting, at a ball in honor of Gabriel's likely offer of marriage to snooty, condescending Miss Cecily Orr, is far more remarkable, ending with Livia and Gabriel being found in a compromising situation. He awkwardly makes the obligatory proposal to save Livia's reputation, but the two of them struggle to wring happiness from their hasty marriage until Livia decides it's time to stand up for herself and stop to meekly fading into the woodwork. Berne's consistent, engaging writing and solid knowledge of the period make for a wonderful evening's reading. Agent: Cheryl Pientka, Jill Grinberg Literary. (Apr.)
