THE WEDDING DUEL by KAREN L. KING
It was meant to be a duel like any other -- avenge a lady's
honor, take a shot, and win the day. But from the moment
Keene Davies takes the pistol from its case, it's clear the
cursed thing will ruin his life. Not only does his shot go
awry, his father's reaction to news of the confrontation is
an unprecedented threat to cut off Keene's inheritance if
he does't settle down and marry -- specifically, a
scandalous little hoyden named Sophie.
To Keene's amazement, Sophie has grown into a lovely young
woman, even if she is prone to trouble. Yet Keene can't
refuse the obligation he has to his father -- or deny his
unaccountable attraction to the spirited young woman he
soon calls his wife. Unbeknownst to him, however, Sophie's
determined to teach her husband that honor begins with the
heart, not the sword; and that passion should go hand in
hand with love.
