After the success of The Lady Most Likely, New York Times bestselling 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 readers 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.
At the behest of three of the most talented historical romance authors writing today, you are cordially invited to a ball. No, a party. No . . . a kidnapping. Taran Ferguson, laird of his clan, is determined that his ancient (if not so honorable) birthright be secured before he dies. When both his nephews refuse to wed, the old reprobate takes matters into his own hands: he raids a ball and makes off with four likely brides . . . Miss Marilla Chisholm—the bonniest lass in Scotland, and an heiress to boot. Miss Fiona Chisholm—her older sister, Another Fine Choice (but for that tiny stain on her reputation) Lady Cecily Tarleton—true, she's an English beauty, but very, very rich. Miss Catriona Burns—without name OR fortune, clearly someone made a mistake. Oh, yes. And one very irate duke. Now, while they wait out a fierce Highland storm in a ruin of a castle, Taran's "guests" are running from Cupid's arrows . . . and from Taran, who is determined to find the lady most willing to love a Scottish lord.

The handsome, rakish heir to a dukedom, Lord Roland Northbridge Wilde - known to his friends as North - left England two years ago, after being jilted by Miss Diana Belgrave. He returns from war to find that he's notorious: polite society has ruled him "too wild to wed." Diana never meant to tarnish North's reputation, or his heart, but in her rush to save a helpless child, there was no time to consider the consequences of working as a governess in Lindow Castle. Now everyone has drawn the worst conclusions about the child's father, and Diana is left with bittersweet regret. When North makes it clear that he still wants her for his own, scandal or no, Diana has to fight to keep from losing her heart to the man whom she still has no intention of marrying.

After years of being called the wild child of Sandy Bend, Michigan, Dana Devine has pretty much confirmed that rumor by sleeping with Cal Brewer. Yes, she's always had a thing for the new police chief, but she never meant to live out her fantasy. Now that reality's hit, she knows they can't continue the relationship—it simply wouldn't work. What she doesn't realize is that Cal himself was living out a fantasy of his own…. When Dana asked Cal to "come up for a drink" after running into him in Chicago, he knew where the evening was headed. But he never anticipated falling for Dana the way he did. Now she's barely speaking to him, and Cal's not sure if their one perfect night was just a mistake. Problem is, he can't stop thinking about her…or about spending another hot night with the wild beauty….

Enhanced by an engraved portrait of her husband, Edward Wortley Montagu, this volume completes an entertaining and informative collection of correspondence.

The Chronicles of Froissart (1337-1410) are one of the greatest contemporary records of fourteenth-century England and France. Depicting the great age of Anglo-French rivalry from the deposition of Edward II to the downfall of Richard II, Froissart powerfully portrays the deeds of knights in battle at Sluys, Crecy, Calais and Poitiers during the Hundred Years War. Yet they are only part of this vigorous portrait of medieval life, which also vividly describes the Peasants' Revolt, trading activities and diplomacy against a backdrop of degenerate nobility. Written with the same sense of curiosity about character and customs that underlies the works of Froissart's contemporary, Chaucer, the Chronicles are a magnificent evocation of the age of chivalry.
