The Duke Next Door (Heiress Brides Series #2) by Celeste Bradley

The dangerously beautiful Deirdre Cantor is determined to inherit her grandfather's vast fortune. All she needs is to marry a duke…and be the first granddaughter to walk down the aisle. After all, she has always dreamed of becoming a member of the haute ton. So when the proper Calder Marbrook, the Marquis of Brookhaven and future Duke of Brookmoor, is abandoned at the altar, Deirdre makes it her business to become his wife—in spite of the whispers about his past.

Soon Deirdre's visions of a lavish existence with the handsome Calder are shattered when she learns his shocking secret. Feeling betrayed, Deirdre seeks revenge by playing a perilous and seductive game of cat and mouse with her husband that threatens to drive them both to the heights of passion. She will not surrender to him, no matter how great her desire. But at what cost? Calder is determined to keep his secret under lock and key—and to make his stunning wife his in every way that matters. Even if it means winning her heart all over again…

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.

I liked this book. I loved how Calder was constantly putting his foot in his mouth, it was funny. I liked Deidre's straightforwardness and strong will. Meggie's character was cute and hilarious. I rated this 3 stars because the ending seemed very rushed and didn't really fit in with the rest of the story, the "public house" scene while somewhat funny, was ridiculous and didn't do anything for the story. I also felt that there were a lot of loose ends that weren't tied up, I hope they'll be addressed in the 3rd book, but they really should have been finished in this one.
