Welcome to the world of the ton in regency England. The Earl of Briarly, Hugh Dunne, needs a wife and his sister has devised a way for him to meet the most eligible ones around at the party of the year. Three of the hottest historical romance writers take the reader into a world of the ton, parties and find out which lady steals the Marquess’s wild heart.

A LADY MOST LIKELY… is a wonderful world of nobility, parties and the characters that engage the reader from the beginning. Three of today’s hottest historical romance authors join forces and create a wonderful story that not only includes our intrepid Marquess but also some intriguing secondary characters as well. This was also a neat way to get all three of my favorite authors in one story. A LADY MOST LIKELY…is a novel told in three parts and all three authors do a spectacular job on keeping the story flowing smoothly. The authors created one story with several subplots going on seamlessly. It was a fresh new way of writing that had me enthralled from the beginning.

The Earl of Briarly, Hugh Dunne knows horses and when he finds himself needing a wife, he turns to his sister, The Marchioness of Finchley, to help him meet the eligible maidens of the ton. What happens next is a party like none other as some of the guests find love amid the glittering lights and Hugh finds the woman of his heart. I loved how these authors wove three (or four if you count the romance between the Marquess and her husband as well) stories into one wonderful tale. The characters are enjoyable and well written with the three authors’ skill at weaving a story apparent. What I enjoyed the most was the humor sprinkled within the pages as well as the different couples that finally got together after the reader saw the sparks fly between them. Just keep in mind that if you are looking for three separate stories by these authors, this isn’t it. The characters are not as in depth as in an individual story but overall, they are quite enjoyable in A LADY MOST LIKELY…

A LADY MOST LIKELY…is a highly enjoyable story about four couples at a house party that turns out some spectacular matches. If you are looking for a sweet, feel good historical romance, and then I highly recommend this unique book. All three authors did a grand job in switching writing styles seamlessly and maintaining the storyline without any drop in personalities of the characters. I am eager to see if these three authors team up again for another three part novel in the future.

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
