Another Stuart gem. Emerson MacVey is a thoughtless, cold hearted man who dies of a heart attack at 32. He is given a chance to redeem himself enough to enter heaven and must do right by three people that he wronged during his life. It is a quick read, but as in most Stuart books, these characters reach out and grab you. Recommended!

Bad boys weren't meant to be angels...until Gabriel Falconi returned to earth. With just one last chance to redeem his immortal soul, the man suddenly felt truly alive. He could really taste mulled cider, feel snow melting on his skin, appreciate Christmas festivities..and still revel in the devilishly delicious vision of Carrie Alexander.
Unfortunately, he was sent to help the woman...not make love to her. And yet Gabriel trembled to touch his newfound angel-in-the-flesh. He began to believe that one single, heavenly night in her arms would be worth a whole eternity of flames...
Gabriel Falconi has ruined many lives in his all too short life, but now he's going to get one chance to come back and undo some of the damage he's done. He's no angel, but he'll have to be one to keep his hands off beautiful Carrie Alexander. He's here to help her, not fall in love. A wonderful early Anne Stuart.
