If only he could go back in time. Then Ian, Karl ol Marden, would not have dueled, and he would not have hit an innocent bystander -- a sickly lad, no less. And he certainly would never have brought the boy's sister, Athena Renslow, to stay at his house without a chaperone. On top of it all, the nineteen-year-old beauty is under the mistaken impression that Ian is the gentle hero who rescued her brother instead of the rogue who practically killed him. So, in order to keep the Renslows' lives from getting any worse, Ian resolves to marry the girl. But, Athena won't let the wealthy, handsome bachelor sacrifice everything for a country nobody, despite the urgings of both their families--and their hearts.

    Entertaining and light-hearted! Ian Maddox the Earl of Marden h

    Entertaining and light-hearted!

    Ian Maddox the Earl of Marden has to defend his honor, so finds himself involved in a duel, a duel that could mean his life and all because he slept with another man's wife. Idiot. He certainly wasn't the first man to sleep with her and he will definitely not be the last, so why did Lord Paige pick him to call out? And why did Lord Paige fire early and while Ian’s back was still turned? And why did Ian, instead of wounding the coward, fire into the woods? And why did his bullet ricochet off a tree and hit a young man out for a ride with his groom? Great Scott! What a mess and that’s just the beginning.

    Oh, Barbara Metzger, you haven’t let me down yet. What an entertaining read! The story flowed smoothly with no hiccups, the characters were interesting, well-rounded and funny and the plot was engaging. I especially loved Ian. Poor Ian. He needed to have his life turned upside down and the Renslows were just the ones to do it to him. It helped that his guilt was a great motivator. LOL

    I’m glad Troy wasn’t a spoiled brat (I worried he would be with a doting sister taking care of him since he was a baby) and that Attie was a delightful character full of piss and vinegar. Even the dog was a delight. I also love how Ms. Metzger gives us some peeks at the servants and their behaviors in her books as well as having a salty dog or two involved in the story. Her books engage my whole attention and are a wonderful lighthearted way to pass the time. I always look forward to reading more by her.

    A fun to read Regency

    Ian knows he is an idiot for dueling with Lord Paige over cuckolding the man¿s wife as killing or being killed is not worth what could happen to his mother and sister if they lack his protection. Paige fires early but misses. Ian fires at a tree, but the bullet ricochets and hits a fifteen year old bystander. Feeling guilty, he takes Troy Reshow into his home and brings the lad¿s sister Attie to his house explaining an accident happened during target practice........................... . Attie thinks Ian is a hero with his treatment of her ailing sibling. However, Ian is stunned when he realizes the pint sized Attie is nineteen and needs a chaperone to stay with him. Ian¿s mom says he must wed her. Carswell says Ian must wed her. The butler and valet make it clear that Ian must wed her. Her stepbrother Spartacus arrives and says Ian must wed her. Finally his sister Dorothy arrives and says she does not need to wed him as she can stay with her. Ian knows what he must do as he wants to wed Attie, but fears her reaction when she learns the truth about the duel. He also worries that someone wants to hurt Attie and Troy...................... This Regency romance contains a powerful cast starting with the strong lead couple and ably supported by a fabulous ensemble. The suspense comes late as much of the tale is focused on Ian feeling guilty while Attie worships her champion. Though the culprit is too easily stopped, fans will appreciate this fine historical tale.............................. Harriet Klausner
