She had all the wealth and status any woman could want and freedom from her hideous stepmother to boot. Yes, she would do. The fact that she was stunning enough to make his pulse pound should simply be a delightful side-effect. After that kiss, he now wished he'd waited to launch his little surprise upon her. It would have been quite nice to have more time alone with her Deirdre stepped into the daylight to where Brookhaven's driver waited with the grandest carriage in the stables.
The intricate Brookhaven crest gleamed gold on the black lacquer door. Her carriage. Her crest. From behind her came the voices of some of Tessa's acquaintances. Deirdre was sick unto death of hearing it, always in voices just a bit too loud for real secrecy. The man who'd once had Society's pity now apparently had more entertainment value as a villain.
Her husband bowed as she approached, then straightened head and proud shoulders above the other men. Her Brookhaven, her very own, to keep forever. Dear God, she hoped she hadn't made a terrible mistake. Chapter Four The ride back to Brook House was only a few short miles, but the time stretched unbearably for Deirdre, locked in uncomfortable silence beside her husband. Yet, he'd not made a move to be so. Oh, why did he not touch her? They were almost back to the house. This would likely be their last private moment for several hours!
Not that she wished to be rogered in the carriage like some ladybird, of course. Oh, heavens, what a thought! What a wonderful, delicious, wickedy scandalous divine thought! Perhaps he waited for some signal from her, some subtle permission? She shifted slightly closer on the seat and then turned to him with a soft smile, ready to— Beside her, Brookhaven cleared his throat. Was he uncomfortable? He might be a bit stiff and even dour, but he usually moved through the world as if he owned it twice over. That confidence was quite attractive. He shifted again beside her, his brows drawn into a definite scowl.
He was truly distressed about something, wasn't he? Deirdre had no trouble seeing it, although most people would merely think the marquis vaguely irritated. One had to understand how vastly detached his lordship was in order to see that any expression at all was next to screaming aloud, for him.
Since she had years of experience with detaching herself, seeing the difference was quite simple for Deirdre. It had taken all her wit and self-control to live with her vicious stepmother these past thirteen years and not end up the victim of her own loss and uncertainty. Others might think her steely and unfeeling—though Deirdre cared not a whit for their opinion—or even selfish, but Deirdre had decided long ago that the best revenge on Lady Tessa would be to win a place in Society so high above her stepmother that she could spend the rest of her days making sure that Tessa would be shunned by the lowest squire's wife.
Of course, it was not her primary goal in life, but the fantasy had sustained her through some awful years. Now, enacting Tessa's social demise had attained the level of A light diversion. No, what Deirdre cared most about at this moment was discovering everything she could about the man behind his walls—and making sure that that man realized that he could never live without her.
The best part, the part that Deirdre hadn't actually informed Brookhaven of yet, was that once Brookhaven became the Duke of Brookmoor, Deirdre would win a stunning inheritance of nearly thirty thousand pounds from her great-grandfather's trust. With outrageous wealth of her own, no one could control her, not in the slightest way, not by strength or affection or even blackmail, for she'd led a pristine existence.
She was in every way the girl Brookhaven thought her, except that she would soon be as wealthy as a princess. She had been raised from the age of twelve to be a duchess and, although Tessa's methods had been cruel and unusual, Deirdre knew everything necessary to run a great estate and the complicated social lives of such a resplendent couple as she and her husband. She certainly wouldn't want any feelings of "didn't get the right girl" to linger in Brookhaven's mind. The news of the inheritance should erase any such thing right out of his mind. He cleared his throat again.

Then the carriage door was opened and a liveried footman was there to take her hand and help her down the dainty iron step. The staff stood there waiting in a line from Fortes-cue on down to the lowest scullery. Fortescue bowed deeply. He gazed at her with cool assessment. Deirdre knew that her first moments as Lady Brookhaven would set the tone for the rest of her life.
She drew in a breath to form just the right gracious-but-don't-forget-who's-incharge greeting. He turned from her to face the creature pattering down the stairs at him. Deidre turned as well, and saw a horrible sight. It was a person—a very little, very dirty, very unkempt sort of person. It hit Brookhaven in a flurry of torn stockings and pointy elbows and tangled hair. Surprisingly, Brookhaven did not pull away, but merely stood stiffly to receive the minor monster's fervent embrace. Large black-brown eyes glared at her through tangled strands of dark hair. Deirdre stood her ground, staring back.
Brookhaven had a daughter. A child. A child who knew no more about her than she knew about it. Time bent. Old pain flared anew. No, Papa! Take her back! That wasn't the child's voice but her own, echoing from years gone by. The shock and dismay within her spiked sharply into fury.
How could he have done this? He had turned her into Tessa! She turned on him. This— this was not part of our agreement. This is a marriage. You are my wife. You'll do as you're told. Who did the big lummox think he'd married? She folded her arms. I refuse to have anything to do with it.
Papa, did you marry the governess? The child wasn't precisely a secret. She simply didn't visit very often. The public had seen fit to ignore her existence in the long ago scandal, and Calder supposed he'd simply become used to being closemouthed about Meggie. Nor had he wanted to be refused because of her. Meggie had not managed to keep any nurse or governess longer than a few days. Deep down Calder was beginning to fear that his daughter was everything that Melinda had revealed herself to be in the end—willful, high-tempered and prone to disturbing rages. Not at all like he himself.
One could not ask a demure and even-tempered young lady like Miss Deirdre Cantor to take on mothering such a hellion. One could, however, trick her into it. As the silence stretched on, he realized that one could also come to regret such a decision. Meggie stared at him with her eyes wide with betrayal and fury. Miss—er, Deirdre— stood glaring at him with none of the poised charm and agreeableness of before.
Calder reminded himself that this was a female raised and nurtured by one of the most poisonous harridans he'd ever had the displeasure to encounter. It would not do to let her detect a moment of weakness. In fact, a show of strength was definitely in order— which would also have the advantage of putting an end to this excruciating scene. Yes, he ought to have prepared Deirdre. And he ought to have at least hinted at something near the truth to Meggie.
But damn it, something had had to be done and he'd done it! The matter was now put right. The motherless girl had a mother. Brookhaven had a new lady. And he had He had better act quickly, or the two steaming females before him were going to hit a boiling point.
He cleared his throat with authority. He would speak to her so—in front of the entire staff? Every Brookhaven servant from dignified Fortescue down to the lowest scullery stood behind her, watching each moment of the unfolding drama. Who, precisely did he think she was? What picture did he have of her in his mind, that he thought she would swallow such humiliation and bow to his will? She might have been persuaded to take some responsibility for the child, hiring the proper handlers for her and such, finding the right school, but after this she would no more button that little beast's shoe than she would jump into the filthy Thames!
She had not escaped Tessa's tyranny only to find herself in just another cage. She felt her spine turn to steel, bone by bone, hammered to sword-edge by the gazes of the very likely scornful Brookhaven staff on her back. She tugged her gloves off with precise little snaps and gazed at her husband with her chin high.
This way. Dear God, she'd be lucky to get last week's cold bathwater from them now! Chapter Five Calder stood in the hall and gazed after his butler and his bride for a long moment. That hadn't gone quite as well as he'd planned. She's staying. That is not the sort of language proper young ladies use. This was getting to be a habit. Once in his study, he closed the door with the feeling of shutting out a howling, hairraising storm. In the blessed silence he paced the length of the room. Details of the new paper factory he was building lay unrolled upon his desk, but he found himself unable to concentrate upon them.
Back and forth, from fireplace to window, his gaze unseeing on the fine blue-and-gold carpet. At last Fortescue rapped twice on the door and entered. Only Fortescue was allowed in the study when Calder was working, and only because the severely poised butler had a certain manner about him that allowed Calder's concentration to remain focused.
Without a word, Fortescue pulled a cloth from his pocket and began polishing the frame of the bucolic country landscape painting above the fireplace. It was a valuable work of art, but that wasn't why Calder had it in his study. Like Fortescue, it did nothing to interfere with his concentration. Calder ran one hand over his face. He merely continued to polish the frame with tiny precise circular motions. Calder frowned. The frame began to shine. Calder let out a breath. I fear she may be as shallow and unruly as her stepmother.
Perhaps the experience of motherhood might do her good. Calder let his hands fall to his sides. I simply didn't want to He said nothing. He didn't have to. Calder sighed. It was unfair to spring it on them like that, just to save myself the inconvenience of two explanations. Calder felt somewhat better. The problem was that the problem wasn't going to go away. He'd married a defiant, willful woman when what he wanted was a compliant, obedient one. She had looked very fine though, standing there with high color in her cheeks and fury snapping in her sapphire eyes The thing of it was, he'd noticed her immediately that long ago night at Rochester's ball— even though he'd subsequently proposed to her cousin the next morning.
Miss Deirdre Cantor had outshone every other lady present. It had seemed that everywhere he'd turned, he'd caught glimpses of her shimmering golden hair and her shining blue eyes When she'd moved into Brook House with her cousins and her thrice-damned stepmother, she'd seemed gracious and demure, but not especially bold. He'd become used to her presence, and after a while he'd found himself less bemused by her perfect features and more interested in the subtle play of emotions behind her poised facade. Although of course, he'd never thought of her as anything but a future relative. The plans on Calder's desk refused to make sense to his eyes.
He closed them and leaned his head back against his chair. He ought to have considered that when he'd married a true beauty—again! A bedchamber with the enormous four-poster hung in more gold velvet, a matched sitting room with a grand fireplace, and a dressing room where, apparently, there would be no new gowns to hang. Deirdre pressed her palms to her cheeks to suppress the furious heat still lingering there.
Stupid, stupid girl! She'd brought it on herself, of course. How could she have lost her temper at such a crucial moment? She'd put up with Tessa for all those years, she ought to have been able to control herself for a quarter of an hour as the new lady of Brookhaven! I thought those days were done. At least, I'd hoped The familiar oppression of the last ten years pressed down upon Deirdre as if she'd never escaped Tessa. She'd dreamed of having this view, but now she squeezed her eyes closed against it. How could she have been so idiotic? She could have wed one of the many young men, some nearly rich enough, who would have let her run her own life and his as well!
She could have married someone like Baskin, whose puppyish devotion would have been irritating but useful, or even some priggish solicitor like Mr.

Stickley, who could have kept her quite happily spending his money for the rest of her life. No new gowns. He thought her so shallow minded that she'd quail before such a threat? What no one realized was that stylish Miss Deirdre Cantor had never bought costly fashions and worn them once. She had been making the same half-dozen gowns do for the entire season with clever trims and distracting accessories and the only reason she had that many was that even Tessa was forced to see the logic behind dangling well-dressed bait.
How had she not foreseen that such a man could be demanding and harsh? His first wife had run away from him—and now Deirdre was beginning to get an inkling of why! Why had she tied herself to another tyrant? The inheritance, of course—only she didn't really care about that. She never had. It had been Tessa's obsession, once she'd learned of it from Papa. Tessa had imagined that she'd be the natural recipient of Deirdre's eternal gratitude, not to mention the value of such a high connection. Now, however, that inheritance might mean the difference between continued oppression and real freedom.
A man couldn't take what he didn't know about—and Deirdre was strongly considering keeping her future personal wealth a secret forever! She needn't worry ever again that her controlling beast of a husband could affect her freedom in any way. Deirdre gently pushed them aside in order to contemplate her own image in the gilt-framed mirror there. How could he have done it?
In what mad world was it all right for men to arrange the lives of the women around them without any thought to consent or even a decent, bloody warning? She closed her eyes. I hate her, Papa! She is cruel and wicked and I hate her! Her father's weary, vaguely shamed face wavered in her memory. She's not cruel. She simply wants you to learn to be a real lady, like her. You can do it, Dee. Had he known by then? Had he finally realized what he'd brought into their peaceful loving home? What did that matter now? There was no point in carrying on about the past.
Her father was long gone, leaving her with Tessa, which she was not sure she could ever quite forgive him for. She sighed. He'd thought he was doing her good. He'd wanted her to fulfill her destiny to win the Pickering Trust, so he'd done his best to choose a new mother who would be able to teach her what she needed to know. He had been dazzled by Tessa's youth and beauty and somehow hadn't heard a word about her viperish personality—although that was surely why such a well-connected young lady had gone thus far unwed. Tessa had killed Papa. That fact was carved in cold stone in Deirdre's heart.
Her stepmother hadn't taken a knife to Papa or hidden poison in his port, but she might as well have. It was Tessa and her luxurious needs and wants that had drained Papa's wealth like a lovely, black-haired, green-eyed parasite. Papa had been bemused by Tessa's d6colletage or some such thing, for by the time he'd realized the direction his finances had taken, it was far too late.
He'd aged overnight, a shrunken old man sucked dry by the evil worm of Lady Tessa's greed. Then he was gone, his broken heart stopped in mid-quarrel with his unrepentant bride, his strength too sapped by ruin and despair to survive it. Without the presence of her kindhearted husband to restrain her, Tessa was then able to unleash her full viciousness on young Deirdre and the staff of Woolton. Good-bye Tessa. Hello, Brookhaven. Deirdre opened her eyes to slide her gaze across the room to where another doorway was discreetly set into the painted paneling.
Her ladyship's room came with his lordship's room right next door. She stood and swiftly crossed the room, turning the key in the lock with quick decision. No freedom? Then no wedding night either. As she stood there, a tap came on her door. She pulled the large key from the lock and dropped it into her bodice. Deirdre had envied her cousin Phoebe the pretty maidservant, for Patricia had a talent for hair and an absolute genius for trimming bonnets.
It turned out she had a kind nature too, for she only put the tray down with a quiet smile. She was the Marchioness of Brookhaven—rich in all things except command over her own being. Patricia merely curtsyed, picked up the tray and left the room, leaving Deirdre with several seconds to spare before the twitching fury began again. If the worst happened—if Brookhaven continued his tyrannical behavior—if it turned out that she had made the mistake of her life— She could simply leave. Actually, yes. You don't want to leave him. You are angry. Oh, "angry" didn't even come close.
If you leave him, then how will he ever come to love you back? Her spine stiffened. She would not stay if she was not loved and she would not beg for that love, not from anyone. If you stay, you can make him love you. Better yet, if she stayed, she could make him pay. He had taken it upon himself to declare battle.
It was only polite that she return the first volley. She folded her arms and inhaled deeply. She would stay. Either way, she won. Chapter Six John Herbert Fortescue, manservant extraordinaire, cream of the British butler crop, had been in service at Brook House for ten years. He'd come as an under butler with the previous butler from another great house— though not as great as this one—and when that silver-haired gentleman had retired, Fortescue had stepped into his mentor's place as smoothly as a key fit into the lock it was made for.
In all those years he had never once padded his accounts or skimmed from his budget or pocketed so much as a silver sugar spoon. In fact, in all those years he had never put his own desires before the needs of the household and the master. Except once. Now he stood in the afternoon shadows of the upstairs hall and watched her walk toward him with her ladyship's tea tray. Patricia, the flame-haired Irish witch who had stirred him so profoundly that he'd been driven to disregard the proper order of things. The English did not value Irish servants, except perhaps for their near-magical abilities with horses.
An Irish girl did not take up service in a great house as anything but a scullery maid. Most worked as factory girls, or in the case of extreme tolerance, as a lowly sort of shop girl. For Patricia to serve the lady of the house as personal maid was unheard of in this strata of society—a fact that Fortescue had trampled with uncharacteristic lack of respect. None of the staff had dared gainsay his decision, his lordship probably hadn't noticed, and her ladyship had so far made no indication that she thought it was a terrible idea.
If she did—if his lordship demanded that Fortescue put an end to this incredible lapse of custom—if the entire staff of Brook House rose up in mutiny— Fortescue simply couldn't bring himself to care. Look at her there, with her fiery hair and her emerald eyes and the proud tilt of her head. Patricia O'Malley didn't believe she was inferior to anyone. Quite frankly, neither did he. He made a noise as she approached. She started slightly, then bobbed a jaunty curtsy with a smile.
Fortescue should have, but since he found the expression entirely delightful, he didn't. Me ma used to brew a tea from thistle that worked a wonder on twitchy brides. Should I speak to Cook, d'you think? I doubt thistle be so easy to come by in Mayfair, eh? The easy smile faded and she bobbed another curtsy. Me ma says I'm far too bold.
He wished he could tease free another grin, or even a breezy laugh— but he'd been Fortescue for too long to simply be John again. It seems that after the ceremony our coachman mistakenly delivered her to the wrong house and then drove away at great speed when she tried to climb back in. He folded his hands formally before him and gazed sternly at her.
With no one to watch over them, her staff simply locked up and left—all but for the cook, who has apparently been drinking up everything left in the household accounts. Can't we save her? His lordship has no obligation to help Miss Blake unless her ladyship requests it. Then she brightened. Could I ask Cook to make up a basket for a friend in trouble? After all, she was, for a brief time, one of our own household. I'll tend to it right off, sir! Fortescue remained where he was for a long moment.
Then, because he was entirely sure he was alone, he rubbed one palm over his chest, right over the spot where it ached the most.
He was being quite ridiculous. She hadn't even truly been smiling at him. After a little while, he found he could breathe normally again. Deirdre had been staring out the window in her bedchamber for quite a while now, seeing little but her own powerless future stretching before her. Somehow, it was no real surprise when the small voice came from the doorway behind her.
The Witch Next Door
Instead, she shrugged, never taking her gaze from the scene outside. We all would be living happily ever after if she hadn't been kidnapped and the kidnapper turned the carriage over. Little Lady Margaret stood in the precise center of the doorway, neither in nor out, with bony shoulders hunched and grimy little fingers twisted tightly together before her.
Despite the defiance in the little girl's eyes, she knew the truth. Deirdre could see it in every tense inch of her. It was a familiar sight. She'd seen herself in the mirror often enough as a child. She knew the story as well—how the prince would have loved the princess forever, had she not been tragically taken from him.
An ordinary woman became the perfect loving mother, perfect wife, perfect gracious lady, with no distressing actuality to steal the golden glow from the dream. Yet Lady Margaret's story was an ugly one, tainted with betrayal and secrets that the entire world knew well. How the little monster had held onto her fantasy against that tide of gossip was a testament to her sheer force of will.
Next time, you can sit on the settee Wiggling her bottom farther back on the seat, she let her skinny stocking-clad legs dangle, kicking her booted little feet against the spindled rungs. This is my mama's room. She had many such scraps of memory of her mother, bits and moments—a smile, a hand taking hers, a scent, a kiss on her brow.
Each was as precious as a jewel, taken out and polished again and again in her child's mind. Or perhaps it was Deirdre herself who wasn't real. Deirdre moved casually closer, idly arranging the silver brushes on the vanity. It was in Hyde Park. It was a beautiful day and everyone was out. Lady Tessa had allowed me to come to London for a few days and my governess and I could not stay indoors. She smiled at me when she drove by.
She nodded her head just like a queen. I remember thinking that she was the very loveliest of the ladies of the ton. So young and beautiful, with everything a woman could want The fact that she'd left her only child behind, while ultimately fortunate for Margaret, only made Deirdre despise Melinda more.
Even Tessa had stopped short of complete abandonment. Deirdre let her gaze flicker over the little beast's filthy locks for a moment, then turned her attention back to the brushes. Well, I needn't tell you that, for you remember it perfectly well. As black as midnight it was, and it shone nearly blue in the bright sunlight that day. You'll be rather fortunate in that way yourself Then the child slid from the chair and walked from the room.
At the door, she turned. Brookhaven had a great deal to answer for. He'd been nearly as bad as Melinda, leaving his daughter behind at Brookhaven all these years. He really ought to be made to pay for that. But first.. Her manners were hideous. How perfect. I do, however, wish to have my balls and my parties and my new gowns. I have a proposition for you.
Steaming bowls of water for shaving sat next to his best silk dressing gown and the only cologne he cared for, a light woodsy scent mixed just for him at half the strength other men seemed to find necessary. What an exciting day for us all. Hadn't the man been present at the disastrous introductions this afternoon? Calder gazed at the gleaming shaving instruments and wondered if perhaps those were best kept far from his new bride's hands. She was none to pleased with the situation—nor was he himself any too pleased with her—and it simply didn't seem right to embark on Would she coldly go through the motions now?
After all, by making her vows she had agreed to precisely that. He would be within his right to barge into that scented bastion of femininity and demand, well, pretty much anything he wanted. Deirdre naked, golden hair streaming down over her full breasts, kneeling obediently at his feet— Which would be abhorrent, of course. No right-thinking man would ever force a woman, not even—or rather—especially not his own lady wife. She might like it. Calder gazed helplessly at the door to the adjoining chamber. He truly didn't know. He'd married a stranger—again—and so far nothing was going quite as he'd planned.
Melinda, although apparently willing, had wept quietly when he'd consummated their union. Showing Average rating 4. Rating details. More filters. Sort order. Shelves: picture-books , witchy-witches.

With simple text, The Witch Next Door unfolds the tale of two unnamed children, who come to be great friends with their new witchy neighbor, who may be a little bit odd - she paints her house black! Wh Norman Bridwell, creator of the popular Clifford the Big Red Dog series, also wrote and illustrated a number of picture-books featuring a friendly neighborhood witch, beginning with this title. When some of the neighbors decide that they don't want a witch living on their street, her response sends them away unexpectedly content Although I appreciated its message of tolerance, and can see how it might be a favorite, for those who first encountered it in childhood, The Witch Next Door really didn't do much for me.
I rather suspected that this would be the case, but after seeing that it had been added to a list of witchy picture-books that I created, I wanted to give it a try, just in case. I have something of a thing for witchy picture-books, after all! Unfortunately, I didn't care for the cartoon-like illustrations, and the story itself didn't really impress me. Still, tastes vary, so young readers who enjoy witchy tales, and are fans of Norman Bridwell's style, might find exactly what they're looking for, with this one.
Mar 07, Scott Middleton rated it liked it Shelves: 2nd-grade Oh, never mind. I will tell you what it's about! First, the boy and the girl knew that there was a witch next door! But the problem was the other next door neighbors didn't like the witch living next door, so they told the witch to leave.
Witch was so angry and even the boy and girl were angry too! The witch turned the woman and the man neighbor into a handsome young prince and princess! Of course, they forgot about asking the witch to leave. If you want to know why they forgot to tell the witch to leave, flip to the next page and look at the bottom.
The neighbors forgot to tell her to leave because they were so happy that they were young. They thanked the witch. What tricks do you think witch could do? She could do a lot of fun tricks, if you see it you will be so surprised! Witch has many pets. But really weird pets. The author's message is you just have to be you and you don't have to be rich, beautiful, or smart. You just have to be you and that will be perfect. This book reminds me of when my aunt had two pets. My brother pulled both of the dog's tails but they didn't do anything to my brother.
But they bit me when they were angry. The picture tells me the "where, when, and why" they were doing something. This book is written in 1st person because the girl tells the story. They all have fun in the witch's house. Then somebody comes, who are they?
