Georgette Heyer: Pistols for Two

Pistols for Two, published by Signet in November 1984, is a collection of Georgette Heyer's short stories. They are tales of love and romance set during regency times and it's fun to read them and wonder how a longer story would have flushed out. My favorites are Pink Domino and A Husband for Fanny.

Allan Kass illustrated a scene in one of the stories also called Pistols for Two. We see the heroine embracing the hero while interrupting a duel with another gentleman. Note the early morning sunlight in the wooded area since duels were against the law and done in quiet, obscure places.
