About the book:

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 . . .
