Lance must resort to night drifting to search out the thief. While doing so, he comes upon Rosalind who mistakes him for Sir Lancelot's ghost.
When Rosalind found the fabulous sword she had no idea who its owner was. Now shes sure that it belongs to her ghostly visitor and that she must keep it safe for him.
In the daylight, Rosalind is introduced to Lance by the family bride finder. Though each denies they are destined for one another Rosalind is attracted to the very real, teasing, sensual, charming rogue as much as he is drawn to her.
Lance begins wooing Rosalind and finds his alter-ego, Sir Lancelot, is his rival. How can a flesh-and-blood man compete with the perfect hero, even if he is a ghost?
