Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

After the success of The Lady Most Likely, New York Times bestselling authors Julia Quinn, Eloisa James, and Connie Brockway have joined together once again, but this time to ask the question, who is The Lady Most Willing?

When Laird Taran Fergusons nephews refuse to wed and secure his birthright, he takes matters into his own hands, raiding a ball and kidnapping four likely brides—a bonny lass, an heiress with a slight reputation problem, a rich English beauty, and a maiden without a name or a fortune. But which one is ready to fall in love with the Scottish lord? Add a very angry duke, a decrepit castle, and a fierce Highland storm that is holding all of Tarans “guests” captive to the mix, and readers will find themselves transported to a world of temptation, passion, and new and unexpected love. This historical romance novel in three parts—a single story with three compelling voices—is one that will not soon be forgotten.

Review:

"Three popular grand dames of historical romance team up again (after The Lady Most Likely...) to create a charming three-part farce set in 1819 Scotland. Laird Taran Ferguson goes to great drunken lengths to kidnap four young women — and John Shevington, duke of Bretton, by accident — in hope of finding brides for his nephews, Byron (an English earl) and Robin (improbably, a French count). No one takes Taran seriously or feels at all endangered or coerced, but while they're all stuck in his castle waiting out a storm, romance blossoms of its own accord. Penniless, untitled Catriona Burns doubts John's interest in her, so he proves his ardor. Ruined heiress Fiona Chisholm is happily looking forward to spinsterhood until Byron awakens her desire. Lady Cecily Tarleton falls for Robin at first sight and decides to seduce him. And Marilla Chisholm, Fiona's younger sister, improbably sets her cap for hoary, hilarious Taran. Witty dialogue and good-natured, down-to-earth characters make this a nice quick historical romance fix." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

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.
