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.

ce livre en trois parties est très inégal. J'ai beaucoup apprécié la première histoire d'amour, nettement moins les deux autres. Les couples créés dans ce livre ne sont pas tous très bien détaillés et on a un peu l'impression que ce sujet a été moins bien traité que dans d'autres associations de dames de la littérature anglo saxonne. Bref une impression mitigée et une seule lecture.

And not only because of all the snow you'll find in the novel ! 2 out of 3 are some of my favourite authors and, in a novella form, very true to themselves. Some surprises, male heroes as we like them and Scotland to make it exotic (I know, I know).

To make it short, get it !!!

J'ai regretté de découvrir trop tard qu'il s'agissait de 3 histoires. C'est totalement invraisemblable mais j'ai bien ri à plusieurs reprises donc bravo quand même

4.0 étoiles sur 5 3 authors, 3 romances, and 1 seamless novel. 29 décembre 2010
Par OLT - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
(Correction: Make that 4 romances because the married couple who host the house party, setting for the novel, also have a lovely and romantic relationship.)

I don't often enjoy book compilations by various authors because the books are usually made up of individual and separate stories. This one, besides being written by 2 of my favorite HR authors and 1 that used to be a fave, is actually one novel with 3 romances woven into it pretty seamlessly. Everything takes place at a country house party given by Lady Carolyn Finchley to find a wife for her brother Hugh Dunne, the Earl of Briarly. Many eligible young ladies are invited and also worthy gentlemen to round out the numbers. The book is great fun, light-hearted and romantic with very likeable characters. The plot is not at all unusual. It's the formulaic house party romance, but it is developed deftly and humorously and is well written because all the contributors are skilled and experienced writers of HRs.

Those readers who are familiar with the writing styles of these 3 authors will be able to tell where one author's contribution merges into the next one's (especially the transition from Quinn to Brockway) but it is not too obvious or awkward, but rather a smooth transition that maintains the characters' personalities and way of behaving throughout the novel.

This is a book to read when you're in the mood for a feel-good, warm, romantic story. No angst, no Big Understandings, no Dark Secrets, no villains or abductions. Nothing but character-driven love stories. Keep in mind that because there are three romances in one novel, they are not in the depth that you might like. I enjoyed the book for the novelty of it and the skill of the authors.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Gold in the form of a beautifully written and well constructed story. 27 décembre 2012
Par BookGeek - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
The plot of "The Lady Most Willing," is what makes historical romance such an entertaining genre. The notion that an aging Scotsman would kidnap Scottish ladies in a hope that his half-Scottish nephews will marry a Scot so that their children can be mostly Scottish is outlandish and hilarious. Add in the names Connie Brockway, Eloisa James and Julia Quinn, have them work together on a collaboration and you have gold in the form of a beautifully written and well constructed story.

Better than an Anthology "The Lady Most Willing" is a story told in three parts about a group of titled gentleman and well to do ladies who are thrown together in a frozen castle. Because its the highlands during a snow storm no one is able to leave the castle and no one is able to come to their rescue. They are stuck together and must make due.

Julia Quinn brings charm, hilarious dialogue and her beautiful writing to the story of Catriona Burns and the Duke of Bretton. Kidnapped by accident, Catriona because she was wearing a similar shade of blue to one of the other ladies and Bretton due to the fact he was asleep in his carriage when it was stolen by Taran's men, Catrina and the duke are forgotten and left to their own devices. They bond over a warm fire and the bond of friendship soon turns into something more heated. It becomes a question of whether two people can fall in love, not at first sight, but at first serious conversation.

The ever controlled lord Byron and the spectacle wearing Fiona with the tarnished reputation are brought to life by the romantic descriptions of Eloisa James. Having escaped to Scotland after his engagement was ended amidst scandal, Lord Byron is shocked when his uncle kidnaps a gaggle of women for he and his cousin to choose their wives. With duty and honor in mind, Byron decides not to look a gift horse in the mouth and sets his eyes on the beautiful Marilla. After one interaction Bryon changes his mind and takes refuge from the young lady with her older sister, Fiona. What starts as a means to an end, transforms into romance and Byron must decide whether he can shame his family by marrying a fallen woman.

Robin the "Prince of Rakes" and Cecily who is "every mother-in-laws dream" is the creation of Connie Brockway. In the case of Robin and Cecily it's love at first sight. The minute they lay eyes on each other they both know they have found the partner of their future life. Believing no lady could love him, Robin does not make a move. Unwilling to lose her chance at what could be forever love, Cecily decides to take matters into her own hands and seduce the Prince of Rakes.

Three different stories from three different authors with different writing styles. all three authors are talented and tell well formed short stories. Julia Quinn takes the first third of the book and while she beautifully crafts her own story, she drops in subtle hints to foreshadow the other stories. By the time the story of Catriona and Bretton wraps up, Quinn has dropped enough bread crumbs that you simply must read the rest of the book.

Personally, I enjoyed Quinn's story the best, but was so invested in the tale I kept up with the story and thoroughly enjoyed.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Enjoyable with a few caveats 29 décembre 2010
Par Maria Cocco - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche Achat vérifié
More 3.25 stars than 3 stars, the story as a whole is enjoyable. It's light and fluffy fun, which is the most I ask for for a novel like this. Because it's 3 romances told in one book, there isn't much focus on any one character. That's a drawback when you quite like a character as I did Gwendolyn. She was completely refreshing and not at all a typical heroine. The rest of the heroines were less interesting to me. The romances were fast, but two of the three couples had history. I'm not totally sure I buy Alec and Gwen's HEA but I'll buy their infatuation. I think their story would have been better told in a full length novel devoted to them.

There's a small error that took me right out of the book. For a small portion of the book Carolyn becomes Caroline. Small annoyance but if it's only in the Kindle version perhaps it can be corrected? She's a major character, so it's a bit distracting and took me right out of the fantasy of the book itself.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Just... magical. And refreshing. 26 décembre 2012
Par Letitia - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
Rating: A- ... Heat: Sweet/Warm

What kind of trouble can ten young ladies and gentlemen snowed in at a Scottish castle get into? Well, when the party includes a duke, an earl, a French comte, and a highland laird, the answer is: quite a lot.

Four young ladies, one by accident, and a duke, by coincidence, are kidnapped from a winter ball by Taran Ferguson, laird of Finovair castle, in hopes of matching three of said young ladies with his two nephews. Trapped at the castle for at least three days, many many hijinks ensue.

We first meet Catriona Burns, a gently bred young lady who, unfortunately, comes from a poor family. Which is why kidnapper extraordinaire, Taran, is surprised to see her get out of the getaway carriage. He wanted heiresses for his two nephews, which immediately disqualifies Catriona. Also there by coincidence is the Duke of Bretton, John Shevington, who was asleep in his carriage when it was `borrowed' for the kidnapping. Finding themselves not part of the planned match making, Catriona and John find amusement with each other.

Part one was full of wit and humor--really, it's Julia Quinn doing what she does best. Cute and sweet with a dash of fun. I loved every single second of Catriona and John's flirty and fun banter. It put a constant smile on my face, which is why I wasn't ready for it to end! Oh, sure, it's wrapped up nicely, but... I wanted more of Catriona and John! Much more.

Next we meet Fiona Chrisholm--a bespectacled heiress with a less than stellar reputation. And, when compared to her half sister, Marilla, Fiona doesn't expect to be noticed. But Byron Wotton, an Earl and the nephew of Taran Ferguson, can't help but see the bookish and fiery redhead. Byron is... a bit tetchy. Grouchy and stuffy for someone his age. And Fiona can rile him up like no other!

Part two took me by surprise. Eloisa James always manages to pack such a punch in her novellas, I really shouldn't have been surprised that I invested so much in both Byron and Fiona. But who can blame me? Byron was such a fuddy-duddy that you can't help but smile every time he says or does something particularly fuddy-duddy-ish. And Fiona's heartbreaking (and unfortunately sort of hilarious) fall from grace years earlier only endeared me to her more.

Lastly comes Cecily, a quiet but determined young lady. Unlike our previous couples, Cecily is not willing to let the man choose her. She is going to choose the man. And she has set her hat upon Robin Parles, Comte and Taran's nephew and heir. With a bad reputation as a rake, somewhat deserved but mostly not, Robin doesn't feel he deserves Cecily. So it's up to her to convince him otherwise!

I love the role reversals of part three. It was great to see the lady be the pursuer, even if poor Robin was less than thrilled. I haven't previously read anything by Connie Brockway, but I enjoyed her writing immensely. There was an understated, quiet humor to both Cecily and Robin--I particularly enjoyed the image of poor Cecily stuffing bed drapes down the front of her borrowed dresses to maintain her modesty (the busts were much too spacious)!

If you are a fan of love at first sight romances, A Lady Most Willing is definitely for you! I love the idea of a novel in three parts--not quite an anthology, not really a novel, but something entirely unique. And so, so fun to read. Truly, I loved reading three different author's voices tell us three different tales set in the same time and place. Just... magical. And refreshing.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Frothy and Rather Forgettable 9 janvier 2011
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
Like many prior reviewers, I found this to be a fun read. No big dramas or dastardly villians. No huge, tragic misunderstandings. Just a cute, 19th Century romcom that will probably end up as a Lifetime Movie of the Week.

I like Quinn and Brockaway and enjoyed their sections. Wasn't that impressed by James's portion of the story, mostly because the sweet, befuddled earl from the prior sections of the book suddenly turned into an overbearing, sex-starved doofus.

All in all, I didn't dislike the book. It was like a meringue cookie -- it's good while you are eating it, but 10 minutes later you've forgotten all about it.

<<<<Added December 2012>>>>

So here's something funny -- this book showed up in my "Recommended for You" list on December 15, 2012. I love Julia Quinn, so I decided to check the reviews...and what do I see by MY OWN REVIEW from January 2011 describing it as "forgettable." Apparently I was right, since I completely forgot that I'd already read this book, which by the way, is NOT new.
