This is the second book in the St. Leger series. I didn’t like this one as much as I liked The Bride Finder. This is the story of Lance St. Leger, son of Anatole and Madeline, who were the main characters in The Bride Finder. As with all St. Leger’s, Lance has a special magical kind of ability. He can “night drift” out of his body to wherever he wants to be. Lance, the eldest twin son and heir has returned from battle while his parents are away. The story begins with Lance losing the St. Leger Sword, a priceless family heirloom. He decides to drift to the area of where he thinks it may be and runs into Rosalind, a naïve young widow who believes him to be the ghost of Sir Lancelot. While visiting Effie Fitzleger, granddaughter of the original Bride Finder, Rosalind is told she is meant to be Lance’s bride. Well, Rosalind is not too happy about that. She does not recognize Lance as her “Lancelot” and wants no part of him. In order to woo her, Lance has to continue as Sir Lancelot at night in order to convince her to give Lance St. Leger a chance to redeem himself during the day. Underneath all that rake-ish-ness, Lance was a good guy, and I especially enjoyed his relationships with his brother, Valentine, and his friend, Rafe. What I didn't like about this book was Rosalind's character. She irritated me with her absolute devotion to loving a ghost. It seemed a little too much. I wanted her to get over it, like, soon. Anyway, it is definitely a book worth reading and I would recommend it. ( )

Lance St Leger is the eldest son and heir to Castle Leger and he's restless. He can allow his spirit/soul/consciousness/whatever to drift around in the night while his body remains behind (he/the author refer to it as "Night Drifting", most others call it Astral Travel). When he loses the family sword he decides to go hunting in this way, seeing as he had been at a fancy dress party as Lancelot the Knight this is what he appears to be when he's travelling and how he appears to the young widow Rosalind when he drifts into the inn she's staying in.

Rosalind falls for Lancelot and he falls for her, but she's in love with Lancelot the ghost rather than Lance the person, will he win her over?

It's a fun historical romance, technically the second in the sequence but the first in the next generation, the first book being about the parents. There are some very funny moments where Lance is trying to put himself forward as being a nice guy really but Rosalind is clinging to some very romantic notions about love and also trying not to be forced into another loveless marriage. There were moments that seemed a little forced but overall enjoyable. ( )

The Night Drifter is the delicious book two out of three in this series of books about the St. Leger Sword and having to use a Bride Finder to locate brides. In this book Anatole and Madeline have left for London to give their son Lance a taste of running castle Leger in the hopes that he will be home to stay.

Of course right away Lance accidentally finds his bride and then spends too much time hiding his gift of night drifting from her. It takes the crusty ghost of Prospero, who is much more prominent in this book, to alert him to the fact that he can get away with more by being honest to his lady of the lake than he ever could by lying or hiding the truth.

I feel the scenes with Prospero steal the book and it is worth reading just to see how this ancient ghost reacts to the tragedies that ensue. There is still a quarrel with the Mortmains as Rafe has grown up to post a threat, but one is tossed back and forth as to how real that threat is.

At first I thought the idea of Rosalind believing she is talking to the ghost of Sir Lancelot was farfetched. On further reading you see how sheltered and schooled she was in the Arthurian legends makes it all seem possible.

A great middle to the series, it had me captured all the way through. If you loved book one, book two will certainly provide enough meat to chew on regardless of Rosalind. ( )

I could not wait to read the 2nd book of The Bride Finder series this book begins with the two of the children from our main characters in book one, Lancelot the eldest twin son and heir has returned from the war and his parents are away and he is left in charge. Lance would rather not have these responsibilities, but oldest son it is his responsibility. The story begins with the loss of the St. Leger Bride Sword - a priceless family heirloom that gets passed on to the brides found for St. Leger men by the Bride Finder.

Lance, like most St Leger family he also has a power which is to separate his soul from his mortal body and night drift. Thinking this a great way to search for the stolen sword he happens upon a young widow Rosalind, who believes him to be Sir Lancelot de Luc of King Arthur's Round Table. Rather than let her know the truth he plays along with her and tells her he is looking for a missing sword, which is part truth.

Rosalind visits Effie Fitzleger, granddaughter of the original Bride Finder Lance shows up with his brother Val to seek her assistance in finding a bride for Val. Effie is hit with a feeling for a bride not for Val, but for Lance, who happens to be Rosalind. She does not recognize Lance as her nightly apparition and wants no part of this reputed St. Leger rakehell.

Lance decides to continue as Sir Lancelot at night in order to convince her to give Lance St. Leger a chance to redeem himself during the day.

Susan Carroll develops another mystery, and explores into the ghost Prospero, I believe his the remainder of his story will come out in the last book. Carroll has given us a new plot with interesting characterizations, but the book was enjoyable and I liked the characters, but somewhat slower then the first book. Eager to story book three. ( )

this is funnier than the other two but slightly sad. the idea of lancelot brings me chills but highly romantic and chivalrous. ( )
