It seems like forever since Imogene Macklin moved among society. A soldier's widow tending the wounded at Waterloo‚ Genie is no longer welcome among the officer's wives. She's too poor to afford rent — and too numb to mourn the husband whose death has forever disgraced her. And now she carries his child. Sir Coryn of Ardsley resolves to atone for his former life as a Crusader when he returns to the world of the living — and when he meets Genie‚ he knows exactly what he must do.

*Starred Review* After penning lively Regency romances, including The Duel (2005), Metzger tries something different and imaginative. Sir Coryn of Ardsley, called "Ar," is a knight during the Crusades who plunders and pillages. When he dies, he becomes one of many beings known as "Death." After ending people's lives for hundreds of years, Ar tricks Satan into giving him a chance to regain his mortality. The catch is, within six months Ar has to find a specific hourglass. Meanwhile, Genie Macklin is an outcast, finally finding her calling giving succor to wounded soldiers. Satan delivers Ar to the battlefield at Waterloo, where he meets Genie and, smitten, marries her. Even though Ar is perceived as a wealthy albeit mysterious nobleman, society won't accept his wife. So he uses some tricks he learned in the Immortal realm, which, unfortunately, make Genie more than a little distrustful of her new spouse. With memorable characters, a compelling plot, and smart dialogue, Metzger presents an extraordinary book that commands the reader's attention and lingers in the mind long after the last page is turned.
