Overview

Once upon a time there were three young ladies who, despite their fortunes, had been on the marriage mart a bit too long. They were known as “the Spinster Heiresses” . . .

Is it wrong for a woman to want more?

Not if she is a Spinster Heiress. They do not settle. Any young miss would be very lucky to find herself promised to a man like the Duke of Camberly. However, Miss Willa Reverly has watched her friends marry for love. Camberly may be the prize of the season, but she will not be “sold” to any man. She wants his devotion or she wants nothing at all.

When is a Marriage of Convenience inconvenient?

Newly named to the ducal title, Matthew Addison is determined to discover the secrets behind Mayfield, the bankrupt estate he has inherited. He doesn’t have time to coddle a headstrong heiress who is determined to ditch him over something as silly as “love.” Little does he know that his questions will place her in jeopardy. Now he must do what he must to save them both.

Could it be that in running from danger they might be racing headlong into a truly unexpected fate: falling in love?

"The Duke That I Marry" by Cathy Maxwell Dec. 2018 (Spinster Heiresses Series #3) Matthew Addison, the Duke of Camberly inherited the title after his brother died. He also inherited a bankrupted estate. So what was he to do? His grandmother found him an heiress so he met her, proposed to her and then headed for his estate in the country to figure out the full intent of his estate problems. Miss Willa Deverly thought that the handsome Duke might fall in love with her but after being abandoned after the proposal, she wrote him that she was releasing him of his promise to marry her. Well that shook him up a bit and he went back to London on his fastest horse to see if he could change her mind. There is also a mystery involved with the estate and danger to himself and Willa. I was actually quite pleased that this was such a fun story. I love the cover. Happy Reading! ReadingGenie

Mayfield Country Estate of the Duke of Camberly - 1813 Matthew (Matt) Addison, the Duke of Camberly, is to marry Miss Willa Raverly the next day because she is an heiress and he needs money. Having recently inherited his title, he realizes he knows nothing about running the estate. In addition, the money in the estate has simply disappeared and Matt wants to know where it went. Confronting his grandmother with that question, she confesses that a man named Hardesty had been blackmailing his now deceased grandfather because he claims to knows a secret about William, the Marquis of Tilbury, who died six months ago. Thus, the title has come to Matt. Matt’s own parents died when he was a young child. He has two sisters of whom his grandmother does not approve because their mother had been an actress. And now, Matt has just received a note from Willa calling off their wedding. London Willa and her two friends, Cassandra and Leonie, have been dubbed the Spinster Heiresses. Their fathers are all powerful and wealthy men who demand the best and titled men for their daughters. Cassandra and Leonie are both now happily married. Since Willa and Matt’s betrothal several months ago, Willa has not seen Matt and is tired of being ignored. She knows he can be a romantic man because when he was in university, he penned a book of poems called “Love Fulfilled.” Thus, she has called off the wedding in frustration at his lack of attention to her. When Matt rides to London later that day, Willa is surprised to see him. He then tries to explain to her why he has been so busy at his estate and hopes to woo her back. Can he do it and if so, can theirs be a happy marriage? I enjoyed this book and the relationship that Matt and Willa made with their honesty to each other. There is love, a mystery, and some violence but it all worked well together. Copy provided by Edelweiss in exchange for a fair and honest review.
