Returning from the Battle of Waterloo, Lance Leger is heir to the family castle on the Cornish coast, a burden that weighs heavily on such a scoundrel as he. Gifted with supernatural powers, he can separate his soul from his body to go "night drifting".
When the family icon, a magnificent ancient sword, is stolen, he uses his power to search for it. Drifting through the walls of the village inn, he surprises Rosalind, a beautiful young widow. For both of them, it's love at first sight.
He has a problem, though: she's convinced that he's the ghost of Sir Lancelot. And she can't abide the arrogance of the real Lance Leger.
The charming and versatile Barbara Rosenblat sets the perfect tone for this magical, atmospheric romance. As Lance strives to win Rosalind's heart, listeners are swept along in a spellbinding combination of passion, mist, and moonlight.

The story is good, I really enjoyed it. But, the reading of this book was terrible, I wanted the reader to get some water her voice was so dry sounding. The trouble is that a female was reading this book when a man needed to read it. Audible should always have a man read the man's parts and a woman to read the women's parts. A women deeping her voice to sound like a man just ruins the story. This book was ninty percent the man's story, what a shame it was ruined by having a woman reading it. Please audible take note of this, we pay too much for audible books to have them done so poorly.
The story was really good, the narrator Barbara Rosenblat on the other hand was entirely awful! You can hear her swallow every 3rd or 4th sentence. I could barely finish listening to it, that's how irritating the swallowing was. Just a word or warning, watch out for any books read by this narrator.
