MY REVIEW FOR
Duelling for a Wife
Redeeming the Rakes Companion Novella
by Gemma Blackwood
Available Only at:
Lady Celia Hartley has a problem.
She must find a husband soon or risk being ruined forever. Just as she is beginning to give up hope, William Marsden asks her to dance. Young, handsome, and kind, he seems to be the perfect answer to her prayers. But before he can claim her as his own, they must deal with the consequences when the Earl of Scarcliffe discovers the true nature of his sister’s situation…
We have here a well written novella with a story as old as time.
Celia has a problem, but she has no intention of involving anyone else much less William Marsden in her dilemma. The situation was after all not of his making so how could she possibly involve him.
William upon learning the true reason for Celia’s refusal of his courtship almost immediately takes her problem as his own and offers the young woman he has admired the protection of his name.
Will this offer of marriage turn into a colossal misunderstanding?
Will these two find their happily ever after.
I gave this short read 4 of 5 stars for storyline and characterization. My only complaint is that it was maybe a bit too short. There is a mild sensual level of 2.0 of 5.0 flames with only a few heated kisses between our hero and heroine.
I received a copy of this novella via Instafreebie. This in no way affected my opinion of this tale which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

Dougal, the handsome Laird of Aberdeenshire, is a warrior with a rough countenance who has women vying for his affections.
While none of them are more than a passing fancy due to his lack of attraction for them, there is one woman that he has always longed for, Heather, the beautiful Highlands Jewel.
Lady Heather Leith is Maid of the Clan Gunn and betrothed to the successor to the Lairdship of Glenorchy, Malcolm.
But Dougal cannot allow Heather to marry Malcolm and instructs his men to kidnap her as he plans to keep her in his castle’s tower, using her to satisfy primal needs. As Heather desperately plots an escape, she finds herself unexpectedly falling for Dougal, but she also despises him for keeping her a prisoner and yearns to return to her clan.
When Dougal announces his plans to marry her, Heather knows she must try to escape, even if it costs her her life. For she holds a secret that no one can know about, a secret that would ruin her and destroy her clan. And, she would rather die than spend one more minute locked up as Dougal’s prisoner, prisoner to such a cold and unfeeling man.
