Pistols for Two

Pistols for Two is a book of short stories set in the period of the Regency. Georgette Heyer, as always, has a knack with light, comic love stories; this novel was no different with its blend of various stories, some with a slight mystery, others with comedy and romance. If I had to choose, my two favorite from the collection would be To Have the Honour, in which a practical jokes helps two lovers find each other, and Hazard, in which two people who love each other find themselves in the most awkward situation.

In Pistols for Two we have elopements to Greta Green, duels, wagers, love at first sight, and various misunderstandings. Each of the eleven stories is steeped in the Regency era - the Georgette Heyer atmosphere.
