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...

Meet the Author

Katy Madison has always loved stories. As a child she was always lugging a book around. At the age of eight, after having gone through over a hundred Nancy Drew mysteries, all the Laura Ingalls Wilder books—at least twice—and many others including her full weekly allotment of library books, Katy went to her mother and begged for a new book to read. Her frustrated mother handed her a romance novel. Katy fell in love with the romance genre. She quickly found where her mother hid the rest and began sneaking them out to read. She cut her eyeteeth on books by Georgette Heyer and Mary Stewart, not to mention dozens of Barbara Cartland’s.

Katy makes her home with her family and two cats on a tree-lined street in the Midwest. She thinks there is nothing better than a curling up in front of the fireplace and escaping into a good book while a storm rages outside. Except maybe the beach without the storm, plenty of sun, and, of course, a good book.

This book had so much reduce it could have been compiled in 50 pages. Horrible editing and in proper use of words. Thank goodness it was free. I will NEVER pay for any if her books

Enjoyed the story but it jumped around a bit. It took me a bit to get in to the book. Loved Sophies character, and Keene was ok but u gotta love Victor's character. Was happy with the book in the end. :)

This series is clearly meant to be read strictly in order. It's NOT one of those novel series that allows you to start with any book and focuses on a particular character(s). I wish I had known that before starting with this book. Quite frankly, I somehow totally missed that it was part of a series until I sat down to do this review. I generally felt lost as only references were made to plotpoints which I assume are contained in Book 1, The Dueling Pistols. Otherwise it was rather entertaining.

This book was based on a misunderstanding that continued for the entire length of the book. It was extremely frustrating to read and took all of the joy from the book.

This book is an enjoyable read. Not at the level of Johanne Lindsey or Nora Roberts, but dtill enjoyable. I think with time the author will get stronger, so keep that support coming.

Major part of this book dwells on some nonsensical angst over a misunderstood phrase (by the way; one falls off a horse and not from a horse) and the last 40 pages on expansions. It's okay. It's free.

AWFUL!!!!! Don't bother, even if it's free. The characters were lame & shallow and the whole "plot" (such as it was) was stupid. I dumped this garbage in the 2nd chapter.

This story was stupid. Way to long to tell and some of the dumbest men I have ever read about. Normally I love these stories but not this one.

But she has the weakness of jumping around and the book is long. However her writing is excellent and she has a wonderful cast of characters.
