When the Devil meets an Angel he can take her to Heaven... or to Hell. The third in Elizabeth Hoyt's Regency trilogy. Georgette Heyer was never like this!
About the Author
Elizabeth Hoyt lives in central Illinois with three untrained dogs, two angelic, but bickering children, and one long-suffering husband. There is some debate on whether a golden hamster resides with her as well. The hamster was a free-thinking rodent and decided to live sans cage sometime in the summer of '05

Lucy Craddock-Hayes is having yet another normal day in her life in a village when she comes across a naked dead man lying by the side of the road. She discovers fairly quickly that he isn't dead and has him taken to her home where she tends him. As soon as the man regains consciousness she learns that he is Viscount Iddesleigh and he's a witty and charming man. Lucy's father is suspicious of the viscount but he and Lucy spend time together amicably before he leaves in a hurry, his life having been threatened again, and Lucy indirectly. It seems that Simon, Viscount Iddesleigh, has been on some kind of personal revenge mission against the people who are responsible for his brother Ethan's death and that these people may be striking back. The second half of the book takes place in London where we discover the ringleader behind the death of Ethan and the more recent attacks on Simon. There is far more action with duels, intrigues and Lucy's rather static role as Simon chases round London, beset by his demons and the memory of his dead brother.
I was never entirely sure of the characters of either Lucy or Simon. Somehow they always seemed a little indistinct and Simon's motives in marrying Lucy weren't always clear. What was it about her that attracted him so much apart from her plain speaking? However in the second part of the book I found Simon far more believable - although also seeming rather different than his character in the first half - a man tortured by the death of his brother and by his revenge, fearing that he is evil and yet feeling that in honour he has to continue his avenging mission. Lucy's occasional vacillations about whether she can live with Simon or not are annoying but overall this book is a good read once the story really gets going.
