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.

Ok considering they're three short stories

This title was just ok for me. It's nice to see that three different authors are able to write three stories and interlock them seamlessly. That said since these are three romance stories covering the span of a weekend then the remanded are not well developed. They seemed forced to me. It went from hello to marry me in a heartbeat. The narrator did a very good job as always but the stories fell short for me.

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.

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!)

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.

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!

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.

I love house party stories!

The premise is simple, and simply fun too. Three love stories by three great historical romance writers. It's a tiny bit complicated as each story bounces back in time to set up the story that is unfolding but it's followable. All three tales weave together to make a house party quite entertaining.

NARRATOR : Rosalyn Landor is so perfectly suited to regency Era romance that it's natural.

HEAT FACTOR: quite warm.

CREDITWORTHY? : Yes, in my opinion.

Better the second time

I am an avid Eloisa James fan but this collaboration was a little confusing but better the second time I listened to it.

painful to get through

How can that many talented authors come together to make such a mess? I don't know but it happened here. This was a snooze fest and i only made it all the way through because I paid a full credit for it. This was a huge waste! pass!
