The Lady Most Willing...: A Novel in Three Parts Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
After the success of The Lady Most Likely, New York Times best-selling authors Julia Quinn, Eloisa James, and Connie Brockway have joined together once again, but this time to ask the question, 'Who is The Lady Most Willing?'
When Laird Taran Ferguson's nephews refuse to wed and secure his birthright, he takes matters into his own hands, raiding a ball and kidnapping four likely brides - a bonny lass, an heiress with a slight reputation problem, a rich English beauty, and a maiden without a name or a fortune. But which one is ready to fall in love with the Scottish lord?
Add a very angry duke, a decrepit castle, and a fierce Highland storm that is holding all of Taran's "guests" captive to the mix, and listeners will find themselves transported to a world of temptation, passion, and new and unexpected love. This historical romance novel in three parts - a single story with three compelling voices - is one that will not soon be forgotten.

The story begins with a kidnapping. Laird Taran Ferguson decides that it is time that his nephews- Robin and Byron- settle down and marry. So, he does what any rational man would do- he kidnaps several eligible young heiresses from a house party at a neighboring house and brings them to his decrepit castle. Robin and Byron are mortified by this, and then the situation becomes even more complicated when a snowstorm cuts off the castle from the main road, forcing everyone to hunker down for a few days. And then added to the mix, we have two unexpected guests- a charming young lady who is most certainly not an heiress and a very angry young duke who was sleeping in his carriage when the vehicle was used to spirit the kidnapped women away.
By using simple math, we can determine that we have three eligible bachelors and four eligible young ladies. I will refrain from discussing the particulars of the three couples so as to not spoil potential readers regarding the identities of the couples.
All three of the stories are sweet and relatively light as the characters try to make the best of their situation. One character- Marilla- stands out because she is very aggressive in her efforts to land herself a titled husband, and it is interesting to see the results of this strategy.
I would recommend The Lady Most Willing to fans of historical romance. Because we are dealing with novellas inside of a novel, there is not as much time to fully explore the characters, but the three authors do a fine job with the constraints of this format. I don’t think any of the three stories weakened the core narrative, and I was very pleased with the way things turned out.
The book was fast paced and the different authors moved almost seamlessly through the main three romances. Fans of the three authors will probably notice the different styles and humor of the writers when the switch occurs but should not find it too jarring. The winter storm blocking the passage to the castle and the multiple romances gave the story a "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers" feel but did not feel derivative thanks to the skill of the authors.
Overall, I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys historical romance. It was a great page turner whilst passing the time waiting on the return of the brave souls who challenged the after Christmas sales.
