Overview

THE WEDDING DUEL

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 SECOND SHOT

Returning from the Peninsular war disillusioned both by men's violence and the infidelity of women, Major Anthony Sheridan finds himself engaged in duel. But he's only mildly interested in the tale of the cursed pistols—weapons that will reportedly bring the winner true love. He gave up on romance when his fiancee, Felicity Greystone, married another man while he lay bleeding on a Spanish battlefield. Yet a chance encounter with the now-widowed Felicity Merriwether arouses in Tony a desire he'd vowed never to feel again...

As far as Felicity is concerned, Tony abandoned her and left her pregnant with his child, a child badly treated by the unkind older man who married Felicity in her time of need.

Their son Charles is desperate to know who his real papa is. When Tony shows up again like a bad penny, she finds the flames of her desire were never extinguished. She wishes to be far, far away from his devastating charm, but how can she deny her son a relationship with his father? In fact, she finds she is pleased by Tony's attention to her—despite the bad blood between them. But the rift will never mend unless they learn to trust each other again...

THE WEDDING RUNAWAY

Boston heiress Lydia Hamilton overhears her fiancé’s scheme to wrest control of the family business by wedding her. Refusing to be any man’s pawn, she runs away to England. A lone woman would stand out, but masquerading as a young man named Leonard, she can have the adventure of her life and support herself with gambling.

Victor Bartlett, the Earl of Wedmont, has sworn off marriage, but he didn’t think he’s sworn off women. When he rescues a brash American gambler, who has won too much and too often, Victor finds his feelings for the youth unsettling. To scare the runaway back to America, he challenges Leonard to a duel with notoriously inaccurate and cursed pistols.

But the pistols have a way of changing everything, and Leonard is wounded. Victor didn’t mean to shoot the boy at all, but when he discovers Leonard is a girl what can he do, but take her home to heal? But who will heal whom . . .
