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.
