In For A Penny by Rose Lerner
In For a Penny is the first published novel for Rose Lerner. I purchased the book after reading a recommendation on one of the Yahoo Groups I belong too
This is a very good first Regency Romance. There are a few flaws in the book but the story is so engaging they are easy to overlook. Rose Lerner has managed to bring a new twist to the rich manufacturing heiress marrying the destitute aristocrat. Lord Levinstoke needs a rich wife and Penelope (Penny) Brown fits the bill. She wants a marriage based on companionship and mutual esteem, he promises to give her that in exchange for her money. Both know what the other expects. As soon as they marry all of their troubles should be over. Of course when they arrive at Nev’s family home instead of all the troubles being over they just seem to multiply.
I think that Rose Lerner is an author to watch. For a refreshing Regency Romance be sure to pick up In For a Penny and watch for her next book Lily Among Thorns in January of 2011.
