Overview

A charming Regency-era tale of a duel, a dilemma, and undeniable desire...

A Holt Medallion nominee for Best First Book

First published by Kensington Publishing Corp.

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.

    Still Unsure

    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. :)

    I am not your friend

    I am starting to think some of these reviews are being written by friends. I was totally disappointed. It wasn't funny, it was stupid.

    Mediocre

    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.

    To long

    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.

    Madis Madison is good

    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.

    Mediocre at best.

    While this book has a great deal of potential to be a very riveting story, I'm afraid the author didn't quite follow through on making it the best it could be. The characters and intertwining plots are very interesting, but there was not enough description or development. There was pretty much no background given, the pace was too slow in the beginning, and then there was no resolution after the climax. I can understand leaving the fates of the characters to the imagination of the reader, but it felt like the book just ended right in the middle of a scene. Mediocre, could've been great, and I'm highly disappointed it wasn't. However, for the low price I say it's a worthwhile investment for someone who is clever at reading between the lines and drawing their own conclusions. ALSO: I'm extremely tired of books that have the women forgiving the men in their lives without even demanding even a hint of explanation! I understand this is a historical piece, but c'mon! This is read by modern women, and I find it highly irritating that women are weak when it comes to their men. So, suffice it to say, the women in this book are not especially strong of will (or, it seems, of mind).
