Returning from the war disillusioned both by men's violence and the infidelity of women, Major Anthony Sheridan is not surprised to find himself engaged in a duel. But he's only mildly interested in the tale of the cursed pistols -- weapons that will reportedly lead him to true love. He gave up on romance when his fiancée, Felicity Merriwether, left him bleeding on a Spanish battlefield to marry another. Yet a chance encounter with the now-widowed Felicity and her young son arouses in Sheridan a desire he had vowed never to feel again
As far as Felicity's concerned, Anthony left her in dire straits -- pregnant with his child, a child badly treated by the unkind older man who took Felicity to wife. Young Charles is desperate to know who his real papa is, and Felicity cannot deny that she's pleased when Anthony strikes up an odd friendship with the boy. In fact, she cannot deny that she is pleased by Anthony's charming attention to her, either -- despite the bad blood between them. It's a rift that will never be mended, unless both of them remember that true love means sometimes having to say you're sorry
