THE LADY MOST WILLING
Genre: Regency Period, Historical Romance, England
The Lady Most Willing is “a novel in three parts” that displays how a trio of diverse writers can collaborate on one story, still maintaining their distinctive styles yet merging them seamlessly into a delightfully delicious read. Readers are sure to find the pairings fun, the dialogue sprightly and smart and the characters utterly appealing.
With his nephews rebelling against marriage, Lord Taran Ferguson decides to fall back on tradition — bride stealing. He and his drunken cronies accidentally seize four ladies and one angry duke. Miss Catriona Burns realizes she is the “mistake” in the abduction, since she is neither rich nor beautiful, but when she’s left alone with John Shevington while the others find their way to rooms, an instant attraction begins. Can a duke wed a penniless commoner when an heiress pursues him? Taran’s nephew, Byron, is a man highly conscious of social conventions and rather stuffy — which is why it’s so intriguing when he becomes fascinated by Fiona Chisholm, a lady with a tattered reputation. Lady Cecily Tarleton is too high in station and wealth for Taran’s youngest nephew, Robin, but he must learn to trust in himself and love if he’s to win the lady’s heart. Then, there’s exquisitely beautiful heiress Miss Marilla Chisholm … who finds herself caught by the most surprising of men. (AVON, Jan., 384 pp., $7.99)
