Overview

The Lady Most Likely is a historical romance anthology with a delightful difference. For the first time ever, New York Times bestselling romantic fiction superstars Julia Quinn, Eloisa James, and Connie Brockway join forces to produce a novel in three parts. Readers are cordially invited to a party at a grand English country manor at the height of the Regency Era, where the bachelor Earl of Briarly hopes to find a suitable wife—The Lady Most Likely—from among the unspoken-for female guests.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
This charming, lighthearted Regency, written in three parts by bestsellers Quinn (Ten Things I Love About You), James (A Kiss at Midnight), and Brockway (The Golden Season), delivers wit and heart with every page. Lady Carolyn Finchley hosts a house party to find a match for her horse-mad brother, Hugh Dunne, earl of Briarly. Hugh (who compares the season's top debutante to the "one foal that everyone thinks will breed a winner") and two other exceedingly eligible gents mingle with Miss Gwendolyn Passmore, who conceals awkwardness with arrogance; the straight-speaking Miss Katherine Peyton; and Hugh's recently widowed childhood friend Lady Georgina Sorrell. The romance's cheerful tone and key plot points carry through seamlessly as each author takes the reins, making three matches for the price of one. (Jan.)
Booklist
“A truly original, delightfully amusing treat....Sparkles with wit, sizzles with sensuality, and, most important, is superbly satisfying.”
Library Journal
There's nothing like being thrown from a horse and ending up in a temporary coma to start a bachelor nobleman thinking of the title's succession, so when avid horse trainer Hugh Dunne, Earl of Briarly, gets tossed, he asks his happily married sister for help. The resulting house party, overflowing with marriageable misses and aristocratic swains, provides the ideal opportunity for Hugh to find the perfect wife. Yet imagine his surprise when he also discovers the love of his life. Three couples are highlighted in this engaging romance in which a trio of best-selling authors—Quinn, Eloisa James, and Connie Brockway—join their talents to produce separate but integrated parts of the same story, picking up where another leaves off in a compelling narrative that flows seamlessly from beginning to end. VERDICT Flirty, joyful, and just plain fun, this is a thoroughly delightful historical, as well as the successful result of a novel approach. From the pens of writers like these, what else would one expect?
