Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.

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.

Because somewhere there must be one lady most willing to love a Scottish lord.

About the author

Biography of Quinn, Julia

Julia Quinn is the pseudonym used by Julie Pottinger (born Julie Cotler in 1970), a best-selling American historical romance author. Pottinger grew up in the New England and California. She has appeared on the New York Times Bestseller List nine times. Pottinger went to Harvard and majored in Art History. After getting this degree, she decided that she wanted to be a doctor, so she had to complete two more years of college to fulfill her science credits.

While studying science, she drafted two romance novels. A few weeks after she was accepted to medical school, she discovered that her first two novels, Splendid and Dancing At Midnight, had been sold at auction, so she postponed medical school for two years while she wrote two more novels. By the time Pottinger finally entered Yale medical school, three of her books had been published. After only a few short months of studying medicine, however, she left medical school and devoted herself full-time to her writing.

Pottinger lives in the Pacific Northwest with her husband, Paul Pottinger. She was the recipient of the Romance Writers of America RITA Award in 2007 for "On the Way to the Wedding" and in 2008 for "The Secret Diaries of Miss Miranda Cheever".

Biography of James, Eloisa

Eloisa James is the pen name for Mary Bly, born in 1964 in Minnesota. She is the daughter of published authors, Robert and Carol Bly. After graduating from Harvard University, Eloisa James received an Masters in Philosophy from Oxford University, a Ph.D. from Yale University and eventually became a tenured associate professor of Shakespeare at Fordham University in New York. She also served as the head of the Creative Writing program there. Writing as Eloisa James, she is the bestselling romance author of the Desperate Duchesses series, and the Happily Ever After series of books.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2012-12-01)

When an eccentric laird decides his reluctant nephews need to marry to secure the succession, he does the unthinkable and raids a ball, kidnaps four young women, and removes them to remote Finovair Castle. Unfortunately, he also makes off with a duke's coach-with the duke inside! A snowstorm adds the expected complications, but by the time the angry fathers come to the rescue, their daughters are happily we'd-although not necessarily as one might think.

Verdict: Clever, engaging, funny, and guaranteed to keep the pages turning, this well-written Regency "novel in three parts" by popular authors Quinn, Eloisa James, and Connie Brockway is a pure delight, remarkably well put together, and a perfect follow up to last year's The Lady Most Likely.... Quinn, James, and Brockway live in the Seattle area, the New York area, and Minnesota, -respectively.

Book description

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.
