You are cordially invited to a
ball party 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, he takes matters into his own hands, raiding an English lord’s Christmas ball and making off with four lovely potential brides (and one very irate duke). When his nephews, the Comte de Rocheforte and the Earl of Oakley, arrive for their annual holiday visit, they are drawn into a matchmaking party, of sorts. Among the unwitting guests are:
• Miss Fiona Chisholm, a beauty with a scandalous past.
• Lady Cecily Tarleton, a lovely heiress—but she’s English.
• Miss Catriona Burns, a lady with no name or fortune, so clearly someone made a mistake!
As the snow piles up outside the highland castle, and the guests are forced to pass the time together, the initial dismay turns to unanticipated attractions and then irresistible passions — and indeed, there might be one LADY MOST WILLING to marry a Scottish lord.
A novel in three parts, as fresh and charming as the Highland air, written by three of the very best writers of historical romance.
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 always outspoken Miss Katherine Peyton.
• The impossibly beautiful (and painfully shy) Miss Gwendolyn Passmore.
• The widowed Lady Georgina Sorrell (who has no plans to marry, ever).
And your hostess, Lady Carolyn Finchley, an irrepressible matchmaker with romantic plans for every last one of them—especially THE LADY MOST LIKELY to marry an eligible Earl.
The Lady Most Likely is an utterly charming concoction, a novel written in three parts by three very good friends: Julia Quinn, Connie Brockway, and myself. We wrote this novel on a visit to New Orleans, sitting around madly plotting and writing during the day, then eating fabulous food at night. I think this novel is even more fun to read than an average romance–because you have all the delight of our three voices both separately, and woven together.
