The Hourglass by Barbara Metzger
It seems a million years have passed since Imogene Macklin moved among society. A soldier's widow tending the wounded at Waterloo, Genie is no longer welcome among the officers' 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....

"Six months. I give you six months to find... the missing piece of yourself. Find it, find your humanity. If not, you will be my minion forever." With Satan's words ringing in his ears, Sir Coryn of Ardsley resolves to atone for his former life as a Crusader. When he returns to the world of the living and meets forlorn Genie, he knows what he has to do....

Were Sir Coryn and Genie to wed, it would save her reputation--even though she'd be marrying a man she barely knows, who may El, mad. But with nothing to her name, Genie has nothing to lose. And with his soul on the line, Coryn has everything to gain--including love....
