The Redemption of Philip Thane is Bridgerton meets Groundhog Day in this rip-roaring regency romantic comedy for fans of Julia Quinn, Jane Austen and Georgette Heyer.
‘One of the most exciting historical fiction writers in a long time’ – Julia Quinn, author of the Netflix series Bridgerton, on Lisa Berne.
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 show up in the little town of Whittlesey to give a speech. He also didn’t expect to somehow find himself stuck in time, waking up every morning to live exactly the same day over and over again.
On the plus side, it’s giving him time to further his acquaintance with the delightful Miss Margaret Allen, in town to research the book she’s writing. And Philip has no doubt she’ll fall starry-eyed into his arms, just like so many other ladies of the ton have done before.
Yet Miss Allen stands firm against his wiles, day after day. How is it even possible? 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, who – if only he knew it – is head over heels in love . . . and badly in need of redemption.

I absolutely loved this story! I started reading this as a fan of the movie Groundhog Day, and wondering how the author would translate that to centuries prior, and i have to say, i wasn't disappointed! The story was really well written, and in such a way that yes bits were frequently repeated, but didn't get tiresome. Philip was a first someone you genuinely hated, but it was so lovely to see his redemption. I really appreciated the fact the author added what i would almost call an epilogue which finished the story off nicely. I can't praise this story enough, and would heartedly recommend to anyone
Just delightful! You’d think reliving the same day over and over and reading how a rake reforms himself would be dull - not at all. The story is told entertainingly and there are twists and differences each time as Philip works life out that draw you in. The progression from distasteful boar to likeable fiancé is brilliant and from what could have been a plodding narrative a lovely book is born that I read all in one go!
