Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Love it!!"

    The book is wonderful on it's own, and Rosalyn Landor just makes it that much better. I love listening to her read. Eloisa James was the reason I bought this book but I searched for my next book by the narrator (Ms Landor). Simply because I love the way she reads. I was fortunate enough to find the next book not only read by Rosalyn but also written by Eloisa James. (A Kiss At Midnight) Jackpot!

    Story
    "Three great authors and Narrator :)"
    If you could sum up The Lady Most Likely... in three words, what would they be?

    Funny lighthearted Romances


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved that they were so many characters and smaller stories within the main stories


    What does Rosalyn Landor bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I just love her narrations. her ability to use male and female voices.

    "good fun"

    This book was written by 3 of my favorite regency romance authors. It was guranteed fun read and it surely was entertaining. Unfortunetly, that was about it. The setting, characters, situation are all something we have read before and nothing really unique. I would recommend the other books the authors have written, before trying this book.

    "A fun read."

    Julia Quinn is one of my favorite authors. I love her sense of humor! I like to be entertained when I read (listen to) a book, and I was entertained! I grinned through most of this book, and I'm sure I laughed out loud a time or two. The authors' style thoughout flows so well, I am looking forward to reading James' and Brockway's books. (I've read and re-read all Julia Quinn's books!)

    "I Dunno"

    The best thing about this book was the narrator (Rosalyn Landor). I can't say I really enjoyed it much, it was ok I guess on the other hand, I'm an avid Lisa Kleypas & Julie Garwood listener/reader which means, I always seem to compare their work with other modern day historical romance novelist. Putting it bluntly, no one have yet to measure up. Nice try though.

    "Nice and light!"

    this was a quick listen and I bought it because of the narator mostly. I enjoyed it, however this would have been a good anthology, I did not like that 3 authors are writing the same story even if there are different couples involved.

    "Enjoyable,lighthearted, story"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    No


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Ended as expected for a romance


    What didn’t you like about Rosalyn Landor’s performance?

    I could barely listen all the way through because of this narrator. All of the female characters sounded like they were 40-50 years old instead of young women in their teens/early 20's. The men all sounded like old men sitting around a table at their club, stuffy, no emotional range and old. I do not like this narrator and usually do not buy audiobooks she narrates. I had just listened to the second in the series of these books that was narrated by Susan Duerden(sp.) and just assumed she was the narrator.

    I felt all the lighthearted interplay between characters was destroyed, because they all sounded so stuffy and old!

    I was very glad that I had gotten this book on sale and had not used a credit for it.


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    A different narrator
