Banished to Boston for causing the death of Lord Banbury, Lucas Dempsey vowed never to set foot on English soil again. But when his brother inherits the viscountcy and pleads for his return, the opportunity to show his contempt and loathing for the society who turned its back on him proves to be far too enticing to resist.
He did not expect an intriguing lady to barge into his home desperate to save his wicked soul.
When the dishonorable Lucas Dempsey steps into the ballroom after a four-year absence, Helena Ecclestone is quick to label the gentleman a murderous rogue. That is until she stumbles upon a secret conversation and feels a moral obligation to see justice done. But while the ladies swoon over his handsome countenance, Helena is determined to look beyond such superficial features, intrigued to discover the true character of the gentleman he hides beneath his arrogant facade.

Entertaining Regency Romance
I didn't know what to expect from this Author so I was pleasantly surprised to find this book entertaining. The story has some mystery with a few light twists and turns along with a romance that is satisfyingly sweet. There are a couple sex scenes but I don't remember any swearing, etc. I recommend this to everyone, like me, who enjoys Regency Romances.
I enjoyed the narration of this story. She was very good at creating different voices for each character.
I would like to thank the author, narrator or publisher for voluntarily providing me this free review copy of this audiobook. It was my pleasure to listen and review. 😉

A BEAUTIFUL LOVE STORY!
Lucas must solve the mystery of who framed him for murder. He meets headstrong Helena and, even through his angst, he can see her worth. While they search for clues, their admiration for each other grows to become an all-encompassing bond that brings two families together and builds a strong foundation of love. If you like strong love stories with a dash of mystery, you will love this novel.
I love Stevie Zimmerman's voice as she narrates. I have several audiobooks that she has narrated. I have even bought some simply because she narrated them. She is just that good.

Where does To Save a Sinner rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
This is one of the better regency romances I have listened to in audio.
I love a bit of intrigue and suspense in regency romances so this one fits the bill perfectly. Memorable and intelligent characters along with witty dialogue made this a charming story and one I enjoyed immensely. I will certainly be reading more from this author in the future.
What did you like best about this story?
I loved how sensible, trusting and courageous Helena was. She wasn't easily fooled and I was relieved that the author didn't use mistrust and misunderstandings to drive a wedge between Helena and Lucas. This meant that there was a nice flow to the story and the romance developed in a realistic way without tedious and dragged out arguments.
I also enjoyed the mystery and suspense. I like characters to face a little bit of danger and the scene at the museum stands out as does the scene where they unmask the villain- something that kept me guessing right up to then.
What does Stevie Zimmerman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
I've listened to a number of productions by Stevie Zimmerman and I have enjoyed them all. She has a gentle kind of way of performing her characters which makes them as likeable and charming as the author intended them to be.
Any additional comments?
I won a copy of this book in a competition and have voluntarily reviewed it.

Regency Murder Mayhem with Style - Loved it!
To be honest, I wasn't quite sure how I would feel about the book when it first started. It seemed like it might be a typical regency style story with a wallflower bluestocking reforming a rake.
But Adele Clee really mixed it up.
Start with an exceptionally gorgeous and rather jaded manly man. Throw in a 4 year old murder accusation and mystery, a bit of hanky panky in dark corners, a penchant for mythical creatures, and an exceptionally intelligent and plain speaking woman. I love how Adele Clee has changed the expectations a bit. Lucas is the objectified beauty. Helena is the veritable heroine with the ability to rationally piece together clues and accurately assess the situations she finds them in. She is able to plot and plan like a consummate strategist. I like that Helena has so much strength of character without having sacrificed Lucas' intelligence and masculinity in the process. In fact, both characters are strong individually and stronger together.
The story is easy to listen to and fun. Stevie Zimmerman has the kind of soft and expressive story-tellers voice that fits the genre.
This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
