"I enjoyed this one even more than Carroll's first!"
Susan Carroll 's sequel to Bridefinder! I liked this
second one even more and my only complaint would be that I
would have liked it to be even more sensual (kind of like a
Stephanie Laurens book *g*).
The hero in this book is Lance St. Leger and he's the son
of the h/h in Bridefinder. He's pretty much a man who has
lost all illusions during the war for several reasons I
won't get into. On the way from a costume party (his
costume was a
knight so he was wearing armor) he was knocked out and his
St. Leger sword stolen.
This was a special sword given to him by his father that he
was supposed to give to his bride. He's desperate to find
it and uses his magical talent. I really like this
talent. He can separate his
soul or spirit from his body and travel through the night
though he must return before the sun or be lost forever.
The heroine meets what she thinks is the ghost of Sir
Lancelot. She can't see his face good so won't
recognize him in real life. The heroine in this was
actually a widow. I liked her more than the heroine in the
The Bridefinder is the successor to the old
one and is very different. So you have a missing sword, a
mystery, a heroine torn between to men *g* and one that she
thinks is a ghost and a hero who had given up on himself.
Hopefully I haven't said too much. I liked the characters
and there is quite a shocker in the book. *vbg*
