Lucinda is 17 years old and elopes with a rake. He is actually abducting her and his intention is to demand a ransom from her father. As Lucinda wards off his advances, he accidentally dies and she escapes. But on the way home, she catches chill and is on the death bed. The angels could not decide if she should go to heaven or hell. So they come up with a plan. If she changes the unfeeling, rake, gambler, womanizer Keiren, earl of Somerfield into a good man, she will go to heaven, otherwise she will go to hell.

The story is actually how she brings a change in Kerry's heart. It is a lovely story. It touched my heart. The change in Kerry is not sudden and it does not appear false. He changes gradually and they both fall in love gradually. Once he changes, what a man he becomes! The ending speech by Kerry brought tears to my eyes. I could feel their true love. I loved the book. It was an excellent read and five stars for it.

This is one of the finest traditional romances I've read.

From the start, we're introduced to the unloved daughter of a rich knight, Lucinda Faire, as she is tricked on an elopement with an unsavory character (who already has a wife!). Lucy realizes the error of this soon enough, and accidentally kills her eloped while trying to resist his advances. So in the haste or coming back home, Lucy had an accident and fell into a coma, to which the judges Above give her a choice - get Kieran Somerfield, Earl of Stanford on the path to Heaven, and she can go to Heaven as well. Otherwise, she'll be sent to Hell.

Here begins the unlikely tale of a young miss, teetering on the brink of the River Styx, trying to reform a dissolute rake like Kerry Somerfield, who has broken all ten of God's commandments.

The characters are simply lovable. Lucy is a wonderful character who cares about many people, and places their own happiness above her own at times. Despite her young age - she is only 17 - she comes across as a older and wiser woman than Kerry, who is ten years her senior. Lucy is always coming up with ideas, and she becomes like a guardian angel to Kerry, helping him numerous times in his trials of life.

Kerry, on the other hand, becomes an endearing character as the story progresses. He changes from someone who gambles constantly to forswearing drink, smoking, and even to saving his man-of-all-trades from a fire. It was incredibly amusing how in his own defense of character he inadvertently caught a cheater, and his own fortunes seemed unwilling to decide on good or bad. I fell in love with Kerry when he started thinking of dear Lucy, and how his kind actions might bring her back another article of proper clothing.

A very different kind of book! I've never read anything like this one before!

Not so perfect, not quite dead Lucinda is on a mission to save a soul from Hell -- her own! But to do this she must reform a rake (Kerry), who in the end was not so bad.

This book was so interesting, I finished it in a day. And it brought tears to my eyes in the end. Unique way of showing how Kerry's backsliding affects the "angel" Lucinda -- her clothing (or lack of) is the indicator! Well worth reading - and a KEEPER!!

P.S. I don't think what Lucinda did was bad enough to put her in Hell ... but then there would be no story!!

This is a surprisingly charming book. The heroine is fine but the hero is the interesting character as an unabashed rake with a secret heart of gold. It's an offbeat regency but well worth the read.

This book was a total surprise. Kerry and Lucinda are two unlikely lovers. Send by the powers that be, they have to save each other. Lucinda is in limbo, almost dead, and given a chance to repair her tarnished soul by saving another sinner. Kerry, a rake, has no intention of repairing his image or his soul. Respect and friendship bloom and built into a wonderful realization that love follows. A great book that brings a tear to my eyes when I read it.

I bought this book a while ago from Amazon after reading the reviews about it and thought it would a interesting read. Finally having read it I was pleased I came across this lovely story and purchased it!

It was a different kind of regency romance tale which I loved and could not put it down until I had finished. Seventeen year old Lucinda, on the verge of death must reform a rake, Kerry, in order for her to be accepted into heaven. The Heroine and the Hero worked very well together and I loved how they gradually fell in love. By the end I was very tearful at his declaration of love to Lucinda.

This little story is one to keep!

I was initially skeptical about this novel, but am glad I gave it a chance. It was fun and different and the ending was very you touching. One I will likely read again down the road. One thing that did bug me throughout, was the author's lack of knowledge regarding courtesy titles. The daughter of a marquis is addressed as "Lady Felicia" (or whatever the character's name is), not "Miss....".

Barbara Metzger's comedic style takes a little getting used to at first, especially if you are used to the traditional regencies, but once you settle in to it you are completely rewarded. This is a marvellous, light hearted and humourous tale. A thoroughly enjoyable read.
