HumpDay Hook

Hi! This is my first offering for Hump Day Hook and is from Simeon's Story (working title) that will be book three or four in my Gasquet Princes series.
 
In this scene Simeon meets a woman, who, upon seeing him, challenges him to a dual.

She was good, better than good, she was excellent. It didn’t take him long to get her measure, and yet— instinctively he knew something deeper lurked beneath her concentration, fuelled it.

Fuelled her.

Deliberation flared in her eyes and fury curled her lips into a snarl.

A snarl that birthed the ghost of a memory, a memory that vanished more quickly than mist on the wind.

This for her, he realised, was more than a simple challenge. It was personal.

The sound of steel whistling through the air, millimetres from his ear cut through his distractions. Personal?

He’d see about that!

I am certainly hooked! I wonder what the fleeting memory was, and why it's personal.

Yes ma'am! Love a female warrior. Can't wait to find out what her deal is with him.

The covers look contemporary so I'm assuming this is sports fencing rather than rapiers at dawn? Either way, good fun.
