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.

Romance that will make you smile, when four young ladies are unceremoniously kidnapped from a ball to spend several days snowed up in a freezing castle with several unattached gentlemen....
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.
It turned out to be a brilliant book, but I was expecting that after reading The Lady Most Likely previously. I love the idea of a three part novel and it worked wonderfully with these authors. It flowed smoothly between stories, and it was almost like there had just been the one author.
My favourite story was probably the one with the Duke of Bretton and Catriona Burns, by Julia Quinn. Their romance was sweet, and infused with the delightful humour apparent in all of Julia Quinn's books.
I also thorughly enjoyed the stories from Eloisa James and Connie Brockway. I loved the way the Earl of Oakley was so different with Fiona, and we got to see beneath the stuffy facade. I also loved how Cecily was by all appearances the proper, demure young miss but when she fell for the rakish Robin she was an entirely different person, set on seducing him.
This is a brilliant, fun and enjoyable book, and I would highly recommend reading it!
