Connie has received numerous starred reviews for her romances in Publisher's Weekly and Library Journal. Library Journal also named her Her 2004 romance, My Seduction, one of the year's top ten romances.

as usual, Lisa Gardener writes a riveting story, but the squee factor is beginning to rob me of some of the enjoyment. Perhaps I can no longer find this sort of book worth the wincing it engenders while reading.

“No one ever fell in love gracefully.”
Connie Brockway, The Bridal Season

“I want you cool and regal, earthy and impertinent, spoiling for a fight and abashed at your own temper. I want you flushed with exertion and rosy with sleep. I want you teasing and provocative, somber and thoughtful. I want every emotion, every mood, every year in a lifetime to come. I want you beside me, to encourage and argue with me, to help me and let me help you. I want to be your champion and lover, your mentor and student.”
Connie Brockway, The Bridal Season

“You can figure out what the villain fears by his choice of weapons.”
Connie Brockway, The Bridal Season
