Award-winning author Susan Carroll delighted readers everywhere with her extraordinary novel The Bride Finder. Nora Roberts called the story "an intriguing tale that proves the wounds of the heart can be healed by the magic of true love." Iris Johansen declared that its "dynamite plot . . . keeps you riveted to the last page and still wanting more." Teresa Medeiros pronounced the book "absolute perfection from start to finish." Now Carroll sweeps us back to the moonlight and magic of the Cornish coast, to the billowing mists swirling about the storm-lashed cliffs, to the mysterious St. Legers and the romantic legend of their Bride Finder.

Lance St. Leger is defying his destiny. The eldest son and heir to Castle Leger, he has returned from the army determined to continue his role as rakehell and black sheep, plagued by an infernal restlessness that cannot be appeased. Perhaps because the St. Leger legacy of strange powers is most pronounced in Lance's own dubious gift. He calls it night drifting--his ability to separate his body from his soul, to spirit into the night while flesh and bone remain behind. And it is on one wild night's mad search for a magnificent stolen sword--the icon of St. Leger power--that he finds her. . . .

Rosalind, a young, sheltered widow with a passion for the Arthurian legend, mistakes Lance's "drifting" soul as the ghost of Sir Lancelot. Seeing that she is in need of a champion, the St. Leger rogue assumes the role of the tragic knight, not knowing that this woman is his destiny, his perfect mate.

But deep down in her heart, Rosalind is all too aware she is a mortal woman with very real desires that only a man of flesh and blood can fulfill--a man like Lance St. Leger. The scandal-plagued scoundrel teases and tempts her, fills her with a yearning her chivalrous phantom knight cannot satisfy. And in this place imbued with both true love and otherworldly magic, where blood ties run as deep as eternity, a new dire portent vows to come full circle. As a murderous enemy challenges the St. Leger power, Rosalind must tempt magic herself to save her beloved from the cold depths of eternal damnation.

The Night Drifter captures the magic of Susan Carroll on every page, in the depths of characters you long to reach out and touch, in every breathtaking word that conjures the fathomless power of love--and takes you to the places of the heart where anything is possible. If you believe . . .

Review:

Setting: Cornish coast of England, 1800s

Sensuality: 7-8

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
