A near-fatal accident with one of his beloved horses prompts Hugh Dunne, the Earl of Briarly, to realize it is time to get married. The only problem is that while Hugh might know horses, he knows nothing about women, which is why he turns to his sister Carolyn, the Marchioness of Finchley. Not only does Carolyn compile a select listing of the season’s most sought-after ladies, including the delightfully blunt Katherine Peyton and reigning beauty Gwendolyn Passmore. She invites them, as well as war-hero Captain Neill Oakes and newly titled Alec Darlington, to a country-house party. Now all Hugh has to do is select his bride, but he had better hurry, because it turns out he has some serious competition for the ladies. Quinn, Eloisa James, and Connie Brockway, three RITA Award winners, team up to create a novel in three parts, and the resulting book is a truly original, delightfully amusing treat. The Lady Most Likely . . . sparkles with wit, sizzles with sensuality, and, most important, is superbly satisfying.
