From the Publisher
Three of the brightest stars of historical romance invite you to a party at the country home of the Honorable Marquess of Finchley
Hugh Dunne, the Earl of Briarly, needs a wife, so his sister hands him a list of delectable damsels and promises to invite them— and a few other gentlemen—to her country house for what is sure to be the event of the season.
Hugh will have time to woo whichever lady he most desires . . . Unless someone else snatches her first.
The invitation list includes:
- The horse-mad but irresistibly handsome Earl of Briarly
- The always outspoken Miss Katherine Peyton
- The dashing war hero Captain Neill Oakes
- The impossibly beautiful (and painfully shy) Miss Gwendolyn Passmore
- The terribly eligible new Earl of Charters
- The widowed Lady Georgina Sorrell (who has no plans to marry, ever)
And your hostess, Lady Carolyn Finchley, an irrepressible matchmaker who plans to find the lady most likely . . . to capture her brother’s untamed heart.

THE LADY MOST LIKELY by Julia Quinn, Eloisa James, and Connie Brockway is a historical romance set in 1817 London. It is a novel in three parts written by three different authors, who continue the stories. It is well written by all three authors. This is an entertaining story of love, and romance where the writing of three authors continues to flow between all three authors. It has wit,romance, sweet sensuality,matchmaking,a house party of potential brides,and finding true love. Hugh, handsome, a Duke, a horse trainer,loves stables, would rather be knee deep in horse manure than at a house party.He has decided he needs a wife after nearly dieing due to a kick from a horse he was training and realizes life is short and without a wife and heir, his estate would go to a third cousin.So he encourages his sister to have a house party, and make a list of potential brides. So she does, including her best friend, Georgina, who is widowed and been around Hugh all of life, but does not want to remarry. What begins as a simple plan turns into three stories of love, romance, determination,wit,humor and three marriage matches. This is a delightful story, sure to entertain the most avid historical romance reader by these three authors. I would recommend this book especially if you enjoy historical romance at its best.Matchmakers watch out, things does not always turn out as you plan.
