A charming Regency-era tale of a duel, a dilemma, and undeniable desire...
A Holt Medallion nominee for Best First Book
It was meant to be a duel like any other—defend a lady's reputation, teach a scamp a lesson in honor, and win the day. But from the first moment Keene Davies raises the cursed pistol things go awry. The shot goes astray, he wounds his best friend, and his displeased father threatens to disinherit him—unless he marries a scandalous little hoyden named Sophie.
Unbeknownst to Keene, Sophie Farthing has grown into a lovely young woman, albeit one still inclined to fall into scrapes. Her high spirits and tendency to ride hell bent for leather lead her into more than one disaster, but she's bound to make the most of this unexpected marriage to Keene. She's determined to teach her husband that honor begins with the heart, not the handle of a pistol, and that passion should go hand in glove with love...

The Wedding Duel
A comedy of errors. Why people should always be honest and open about their feelings. A quiet long but satisfying historical romance about not one, not two, but six characters whose lives affect each other’s in many different ways. I think all who read this story will enjoy it very much.
The wedding duel
Very disappointed by this book. The story line was rediculous. No man in that time would have treated a woman like that. The reference to her concussion was absurd as well. Medical science was so inept then.
Good Story but...
This book was a good read but, it drug on a lot..by the end of it I was just ready for it to be finished. I did like Keene and Sophie’s story but it was just way to drawn out and I kept getting annoying that everyone was tip toeing around things.
