THE LADY MOST LIKELY ...
Genre: Regency Period, Historical Romance, England, Anthology
This triple threat of talent delivers a delightful continuum set around a wife-hunt at a country house party. Each author takes on a different romance and characters, enhancing the plot by infusing her unique style into each novella. This anthology will make readers smile.
When the horse-crazy Earl of Briarly, Hugh Dunne, decides to marry, he asks his sister, Lady Caroline Finchley, to find him a wife. A romantic, Lady Caroline plans to make more than one match by inviting several ladies and dashing gentlemen to her house party — she just isn’t sure who will end up with whom.
There are the gentlemen; her brother, who’s more concerned with horses than people, but he does think one woman is far more alluring than his stallion. There’s Captain Neill Oakes, a war hero who loves deeply and never forgets who or what he wants. Lastly, there’s the newly minted Earl of Chambers, who doesn’t even know if he wants a wife. The ladies include Miss Gwendolyn Passmore, whose shyness keeps suitors at bay. Quite her opposite is the outspoken Miss Kathryn Peyton, whose nature chases some men away and draws other closer. Rounding out the party is Lady Georgina Sorrell, a widow with no plans to remarry. Put this cast of characters together and let the games begin! (AVON, Jan., 380 pp., $7.99)
