The Lady Most Willing...: A Novel in Three Parts

The Lady Most Willing...: A Novel in Three Parts - Eloisa James, Connie Brockway, Julia Quinn Julia Quinn: 4*Catriona and the Duke of BettonIt has what you can always expect from Ms. Quinn: amusing situations, great humor and believable characters.Eloisa James: 4.5*Fiona Crisholm and the Earl of OakleyI would have guessed EJ's part with only reading the 1st chapter! I love her unique take on the situation and her sometimes outlandish ideas! Connie Brockway: 3*Lady Cecily and the Comte de RochefortI hate to say this, but Ms Brockway's part seemed rushed. The others could stand easily on their own, but I don't think Ms. Brockway has the gift of writing novellas... What I Liked: the idea of the anthology, that it's a novel that has 3 couples with their own storyWhat I didn't like: that it wasn't longerFavorite character: Miss FionaMy least favorite character: Miss Marilla, a more bad-spirited character I have never seenFavorite Quote:“Your sister is a menace,” he spat. “Do you have any idea what she did to me? Any idea?”“No,” Fiona said, tipping back her head in order to see his expression. “I’ve been right here all along. Something lacking sense, no doubt.”He bared his teeth at her. “I am a calm man.”“Oh, I can see that,” she said with some enjoyment.“And I can see that you merely pretend to be a quiet, bookish young lady.”“Well, I did tell you that I had a bad reputation,” she said, grinning at him the way she smiled only at her closest friends because . . . well . . . this was just so much fun. “But since we both seem to have a hidden dark side, may I say that yours is more interesting? I judged you a chilly aristocrat to the bone, but now you more resemble a barbarian.” [EJ's part of the book]Would I recommend the book: It's a good novel, amusing and easy to read. I don't think I'll ever re-read it but it's one of the best anthologies ever.Thanks to the publisher and Edelweiss for the ARC in exchange of a honest review
