Hugh Dunne is the Earl of Briarly and after a scare from a horse training accident he feels he needs to find himself a wife. So he has his sister Carolyn make him a list of all the available and the best young ladies on the market. Carolyn is a bit of a matchmaker and is delighted with the idea of pairing Hugh off. So she invites the young ladies and some fine gentlemen to her house for a house party. But will things go as she plans?
Not likely, Hugh will need to work fast if he has any hopes of securing any ladies hand, as his friends are also showing a keen interest. But Hugh can't seem to tear himself away from the stables, where he is training his Arabian racehorse. And while some matchmaking may be going on with some of the ladies and gentlemen, Hugh sets his sights on an unlikely lady. But will she even consider him?
The novel tied up beautifully in the end and I was overjoyed for all the new lovebirds. The Lady Most Likely is a delightful quick read that I would highly recommend to fans of the historical romance genre, or even new readers to the genre. Add it to your Goodreads shelf today or buy it on Amazon.
"Gerogina had an overwhelming urge to run. He was absurdly different from the men she had known. Too much, too male, too strong, too - too everything. "

I've given it three stars simply because I did finish it, and parts did make me laugh, but if the book had been stolen from me halfway through, I don't think I would have bothered buying a new copy.
The problem is, that there are simply too many heroes and heroines, and they all need to have their happy ending. But they each have so few pages, that there isn't time for you to get to know these characters or feel any kind of interest or sympathy towards them. They fall in love at first sight or are already in love when their part of the story begins. There's no drama, no conflict or villains, and it's all just a bit... boring.
As written above, I like the idea, but I think it would have been better done over three separate books.
He asks his sister to write a list of eligible ladies, only to find that the season has ended and he has missed the boat or dance as the case may be.
His sister has the answer, a weekend house party inviting all the eligible ladies she has chosen a few men to even out the numbers.
Hugh is brilliant with horses but does not find it so easy to understand the ladies. As the ladies on the list as peeled off one by one but other bachelors at the party, Hugh decides he must find a match.
He finds love with a lady not on the list and falls completely. Will it work out?
This novel is brilliant. I was expecting a gentle regency romantic tale, which I do enjoy, but this one can only be described as a regency rom-com. It had me giggling away and could rival Bridget Jones any day.
The weekend fun and frolics kept me entertained right to the very last page. Such a shame the weekend came to an end.
I particularly enjoyed the surprise that Georgina found with Hugh. Naughty but very funny.
I understand there may be a sequel. I do hope so. :)
5 out of 5 for me!
Thank you Piatkus for a review copy. This did not influence my review in any way
