Publisher's Summary

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.

HISTORICAL HILARIOUS HIGHLAND MAHEM

A flawless compilation by three brilliant authors who together have written a continuous funny story that has 4 eligible Ladies kidnapped for marriage by an overbearing Scottish Laird for his bachelor kinsmen.

The fiasco takes place in his snowbound Castle where slowly each bachelor is helplessly drawn to one of the Ladies, succumbs to love and eventually proposals start flying around. It was light, thoroughly entertaining, funny and so seemlessly written that you would think it was done by just one author.

Worth a credit? Well what's not to like......... so it's a YES from me.

Funny, Funny, Funny!

Did I mention this was funny!? In short, a scottish uncle, who has no children to leave his "castle" to only two nephews, decides to take matters into his own hands and kidnap suitable scottish heiress for his nephews to marry. One nephew is "tainted" with English blood and the other "French" blood, but they are his only heirs. You can just guess how well the kidnapping scheme went over, but no one could do anything about it because they where stuck there in a storm. Yes, yes, it is a predicable story and outcome, but it is written so well that you don't mind.

The narrator, Susan Duerden, was EXCELLENT....a 5+ star performance!

I love Julia Quinn, but forced myself to finish

Would you try another book from the authors and/or Susan Duerden?

I would read another Julia Quinn in a heartbeat, but it was easy to determine which characters were hers and which were not. Julia is witty, funny and her characters are real and likeable. I was hoping the other two authors would be the same (I need some new reads!) But the other two spent more time ruminating inside their own thoughts than having the characters interact and I personally don't want so much inner dialogue.

What did you like best about this story?

The plot was fun -4 ladies kidnapped by a Highland Laird anxious to see his nephews married and he accidentally kidnapped a Duke in the process. The Duke and Catriona were my favorite couple -fun, witty banter and the kind of match you want to see!

What does Susan Duerden bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I thought she did an excellent job with the number of voices she had to keep up with -4 ladies, a Scottish laird and 3 English Gentleman. I never had to guess who was talking and her voice was easy to listen to.

Did The Lady Most Willing... inspire you to do anything?

Re-Read/ Listen to some of my old Julia Quinn favorites -"What Happens in London," "The Secret Diaries of Miss Miranda Cheever," "Ten Things I Love About You," and "It's in His Kiss."

A fun romp if you can suspend belief

Definitely a stretch but a humorous tale with interesting characters. Perfect narration running a gammet of voices.

A light and fun romance, predictable but enjoyable, with a strong performance. The 3 parts blended well

Wonderful

Think 7 Brides for 7 brothers, only with 4 unrelated men and 4 different women...and no music! But still a romp. Well told, well narrated. Loved all the stories! I did have a particular soft spot for Duke of Bretton and his lady. Very funny and so sweet. Highly recommend! Go for it and enjoy. Susan Duerden does a terrific job.

The book is ok but performance in terrible

The narrator is no Rosalyn Landor! From the very first sentence that was obvious! The worst part is that she makes the male protagonists sound very, very creepy !

Hard to listen to

The story was silly. The narration was difficult to listen to. Not what I expected at all.

Overacted

Decent enough book. It's really hard to write a cohesive book with multiple authors. I usually love Susan Duerden's narrations. The director for this piece had her overdo the accents such that it was distracting rather than enhancing the story.
