About this ebook

The celebrated Penhallow Dynasty series continues in this deliciously witty and romantic Regency, perfect for the readers of Eloisa James, Lisa Kleypas, and Sarah Maclean.

How many times can a rake get it wrong . . . before he becomes Mr. Right?

 Philip Thane—rogue, rake and scoundrel extraordinaire—hadn’t wanted to visit some dumpy provincial town to give a speech, but he’d struck a devil’s bargain with old Henrietta Penhallow, the imperious family matriarch. Nor did he expect that once he got there, he’d somehow be living the same day over and over again. It’s strange! It’s terrible!

On the other hand, it is giving him time to cozy up to the delectable, brainy Margaret Allen, in town to research the book she’s writing. Philip is sure she’ll fall starry-eyed into his arms, just as women always do.

But to his amazement Miss Allen stands firm against his wiles, day after day. How can she resist his seductive charm? Why won’t she change her mind? What must he do to win her heart?

Maybe—just maybe—it isn’t Margaret who needs to change, but rather a certain rogue, in love for the first time in his life, who will . . . 

“Enchanting . . . Champagne in book form—bubbly, fun, and intoxicating.” —Entertainment Weekly on Lisa Berne’s The Worst Duke in the World

At his aunt's insistence, rake Philip Thane travels to a small town to give a speech for their Plough Day celebration. On the way, he picks up a trio of travelers whose carriage broke an axel. Among them is beautiful young scholar Margaret, and he's instantly smitten. The attraction is mutual, but she can't abide his scandalous ways. But Fate has different ideas. Philip wakes up the day after Plough Day to find that it's Plough Day again. Caught in a time loop, he lives the day over and over, slowly coming to realize that he's falling in love with Margaret. But how can he move forward to a future with her? Funny and irreverent and emotional, this book is an absolute delight. It's my first Lisa Berne book, and now I can't wait to read the previous books in the series. If you like historical romance and the Groundhog Day trope, this you will love this story. Thanks, NetGalley, for the ARC I received. This is my honest and voluntary review.
