OrangeReviewStarWhen 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 wed—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.
