The Lady Most Likely ...By Julia Quinn, Eloisa James and Connie Brockway

About The Book:

Three of the brightest stars of historical romance invite you to a party at the country home of the Honorable Marquess of Finchley
Hugh Dunne, the Earl of Briarly, needs a wife, so his sister hands him a list of delectable damsels and promises to invite them— and a few other gentlemen—to her country house for what is sure to be the event of the season.
Hugh will have time to woo whichever lady he most desires . . . Unless someone else snatches her first.
The invitation list includes:

  • The horse-mad but irresistibly handsome Earl of Briarly
  • The always outspoken Miss Katherine Peyton
  • The dashing war hero Captain Neill Oakes
  • The impossibly beautiful (and painfully shy) Miss Gwendolyn Passmore
  • The terribly eligible new Earl of Charters
  • The widowed Lady Georgina Sorrell (who has no plans to marry, ever)
And your hostess, Lady Carolyn Finchley, an irrepressible matchmaker who plans to find the lady most likely . . . to capture her brother’s untamed heart.

My Thoughts:

I love romances, particularly historical ones, and I found "The Lady Most Likely ..." to be one of the liveliest, most charming triple-play romance novels that I have read in a good long while. There is humor, adventure and, of course, romance galore to be found among these three distinct stories.

Best-selling authors Julia Quinn, Eloisa James, and Connie Brockway - who are no slouches when it comes to their own romantic series and books - absolutely sparkle with this novel. You can tell these three ladies must have had a ball writing these stories together, because it shows in their vibrant delivery and the over-all feeling of "a good time was had by all" that is reflected among the pages.

What a grand way to start off the New Year with this darling of a romance!  I highly recommend it to all!

My Thanks to Avon Books for the review copy of this book!  I was not compensated for my opinion.
