    Must Read Trilogy

    This is book number two in a trilogy about three girls who are trying to marry a Duke in order to gain their grandfather's inheritance. In this book, Deidre is the oldest of the three girls. Her stepsister, Phoebe was engaged to Calder Marbrook, Marquis of Brookhaven but left him at the alter. Deidre has been in love with Calder since the first time she saw him on his way to his wife's funeral. She asks Calder to marry her and he agrees. On the day of the wedding, Deidre comes home to find that Calder has a 6 year old daughter and he has brought her home for Deidre to raise. This starts their marriage on the wrong foot and it takes almost losing Deidre to convince Calder that he loves her. I love this trilogy. It is so worth reading all three.

    an entertaining often amusing historical

    In 1815 their late grandfather Sir Hamish Pickering, disappointed in his daughters not marrying up, placed a stipulation in his will that has his three granddaughters jumping. The first of the trio to marry a duke inherits his fortune. The competing cousins started with the rustic vicar's daughter Phoebe, the elegant Deirdre and the too tall Sophie, but Phoebe is no longer a contender having fallen in love with a duke¿s brother (see DESPERATELY SEEKING A DUKE).-------------- Deirdre hones in on ducal heir, ¿The Beast of Brookhaven¿ widow Calder Marbrook known for women jilting him at the altar like Phoebe just did. Deirdre tells Calder the truth just not the whole truth as she figures that is her best chance of winning Calder agrees to marry her. Soon afterward, Deirdre meets her new spouse¿s young child Lady Margaret that she did not know existed the stepdaughter from hell who does not want a new mama. Upset that her Beast was less than honest with her as he concealed his offspring for her, she wants out, but Calder wants Deidre as they play a sexual game of check and checkmate with one another.---------------- The second Heiress Brides¿ Regency romance is an entertaining often amusing historical. Deirdre is a terrific lead character as she wants the title to inherit the fortune, but wants love to come with her duke. She feels that is not asking too much although she reconsiders after meeting Meggie whether the money is worth it. Readers will appreciate their gender war enflamed by their love for one another and the brat.------------------ Harriet Klausner
