    Certainly not desperate

    I will admit that I haven't been able to finish Desperately Seeking a Duke but having bought both it and Duke Next Door, when I wasn't sure I wanted to read about how one brother deliberately provokes another and the girl caught in between [ it was a little too co-sanguinous for me] I moved on to this book instead. I thought the little I'd read of Deidre was interesting so I decided to read her book first. Imagine my surprise on realising that the hero of her book was none other than the 'spiteful' brother of Desperate. The author really manages a feat in helping you to not forget the wrongs of the past, while allowing you to understand the character's motivations. I thought this was well written and that the author really developed her characters well. I never felt like she tried to make either of them other than they were and it was interesting to discover what had made each of them the way they were. Definitely worth reading...and maybe one day I will finish book 1 in this series.

    Strong Follow-up to Desperately Seeking a Duke. Very Satisfying

    The Duke Next Door is a decent follow up to Desperately Seeking a Duke. I loved the first book soooo much and this one held up reasonably well against such a strong predecessor. Diedre and Calder had alot of emotional problems in their path to happiness. An abusive stepmother, an unfaithful wife, and a delightfully mischievous nine year old. Bradley does an amazing job of weaving the character's fears into the story with an easy smoothness that accentuates just how much Diedre and Calder truly need each other. Although, the POV of the story changes from Diedre to Calder kind of roughly at times. But really that is my only complaint with this book. It's sweet and funny. Both Diedre and Calder are believably troubled and have a wonderful journey along the way to self improvement.
