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 Ferguson’s 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 Taran’s “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.
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.
