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.
