Susan Carroll's newest historical will make a believer out of the most pragmatic soul! Carroll acquaints readers with Lancelot St. Leger, the son of Anatole and Madeline St. Leger--the perfectly matched main characters from her bestselling novel, The Bride Finder. Lance, a cynical soldier just home from battle, is unwilling to shoulder the responsibilities of the family's holdings, which his role as elder son requires. Instead, he focuses his attention on recovering the recently stolen icon of St. Leger power, a magnificent sword called the Bride Finder. Lance's talent for "night drifting"--letting his spirit leave his body to roam free--which he uses to search for the stolen sword, also leads him to Rosalind, a naive young widow who believes him to be the ghost of Lancelot from King Arthur's Round Table. By day, Lance's scandalous reputation and far-from-chivalrous behavior provoke Rosalind, but by night his portrayal of the ghostly gallant Sir Lancelot woos the romantic long hidden inside her. When the St. Leger's Bride Finder declares Rosalind to be Lance's soul mate, the fun begins! Add a meddling ghost, a secret enemy bent on destroying the St. Leger power, a sensuality rating of 7-8, and The Night Drifter becomes a read you won't want to put down. --Alison Trinkle
