Book Review - The Lady Most Willing by Julia Quinn, Eloisa James and Connie Brockway

Kicking off the New Year of romantic reading, authors Julia Quinn, Eloisa James and Connie Brockway team together again to bring a rollicking and fun romance that will have readers laughing one minute at the antics and sighing at the romantic bliss the next !


At the behest of three of the most talented historical romance authors writing today, you are cordially invited to a ball. No, a party. No . . . a kidnapping.

Taran Ferguson, laird of his clan, is determined that his ancient (if not so honorable) birthright be secured before he dies. When both his nephews refuse to wed, the old reprobate takes matters into his own hands: he raids a ball and makes off with four likely brides . . .

Miss Marilla Chisholm—the bonniest lass in Scotland, and an heiress to boot.

Miss Fiona Chisholm—her older sister, another fine choice (but for that tiny stain on her reputation).

Lady Cecily Tarleton—true, she's an English beauty, but very, very rich.

Miss Catriona Burns—without name or fortune, clearly someone made a mistake.

Oh, yes. And one very irate duke.

Because somewhere there must be one lady most willing to love a Scottish lord.

Oh my goodness, I loved, LOVED this novel!  It has all the elements that make up a perfect romance novel for me - romance, of course, great characters, an interesting setting, and above all, a good dose of humor!

"The Lady Most Willing" is written by three of the best authors in the romance biz - Julia, Eloisa, and Connie - and these ladies have managed to present this fast-paced tale with seamless grace!  Readers will not be able to detect when one author starts and another takes over the story unless you notice the name change at the top of the pages!  That is a remarkable feat and my hat is off to these talented writers!

I adore the characters in this book - the ladies are fun and fiesty and the men are handsome, smart, and charming!  And the setting in the Scottish castle in dire need of a home makeover is just delightful!

I highly recommend "The Lady Most Willing" as a perfect picker-upper for the cold days of winter!

A New York Times bestselling author of twenty-two novels for Avon Books, Julia Quinn is a graduate of Harvard and Radcliffe Colleges and lives with her family in the Pacific Northwest.

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