This is my first book I have read by the author Susan Carroll. Too bad I had to read the last book in the trilogy first. I enjoyed the book. The plot was well thought out. The book was a little tame, but overall it was a very good book.

In this final book of the Trilogy of Bridefinder books, we have yet another Leger, St. Valentine who struggles with a knee injury he took on his brothers behalf and with managing his gift of having a healing touch. He has been thought to never be able to have a bride and starts to struggle when he realizes he is in love with a foundling child that Effie, the bridefinder has adopted. Kate Fitzleger is the foundling child that has always been his friend and now seeks to be his bride at all costs. Rafe Montmain also returns seeking revenge and brings new meaning to the phrase sweet revenge. I love how brave Kate was and how Kate and Val are often at crosspurposes as are Rafe and Val. Even better is the very ending of this book wrapped up by one of the characters of the book very sweetly.This book was everything the first book was and left me quite satisfied. Susan Carroll is one to watch for. It gets my big thumbs up.

After reading The Bride Finder and The Night Drifter, I was surprised to see the story of Midnight Bride focus so much on what Kate was up to, instead of Val. It took me quite awhile to adjust to the switch in perspectives, but I found that it really did make this book so much more mysterious and exciting. Midnight Bride was definitely more intense and much more passionate than the previous two books, and I'm pleased that there was a happy ending after all.

Kate is such a strong person. I can fully relate to her. Luckily i didn't have to resort to any kind of black magic for my love story. I could barely stand to be parted with this book until i finished it. it was so good.

This has been one of the most entertaining and well developed series of stories that I have read in quite some time. This story has the same mystery and mysticism of the Bride Finder and all of the romance and heroism of Night Drifter. If you want to be swept away, this is the book for you.

In the nineteenth century, the evil Rafe Mortmain returns to Cornwell to die and to extract vengeance on Val St. Leger. At the same time that Rafe hands over the shard of an evil magical crystal, Val grips his foe¿s hand and uses his powers to remove the illness and apparently part of Rafe¿s soul. At the same time, Kate Fitzlegger performs a black magic spell to gain the love of Val. Rafe vanishes and Val has absorbed some of his enemy¿s soul.

After years of avoiding intimacy with Kate, Val chases after her, beds her, and announces they will marry. This is in opposition to the Bride Finder, who always names the wife of a St. Leger and once informed Val he had no future bride. Val turns irritable and nasty, and soon loses his will to live, as he hates his dark side. Kate finally understands the meaning of real love, but that may prove too late to save the soul of her beloved.

Best-selling author Susan Carroll returns with a strong exciting magical sequel to the fabulous Bride Finder, but this time starring ¿Saint¿ Val, brother to the previous book¿s hero. The story line is filled with non-stop action in a vividly described historical context with paranormal elements. The novel¿s warmth emanates from the powerful characters, which cast quite a spell on the reader who, in turn will find Ms. Carroll is quite a wonderful author.
