RRAH's THOUGHTS AND PONDERINGS:
Medieval history buff Claire Peltier has just thrown away yet another relationship. Even at thirty-three, the Louisiana native can't settle on any normal man when her connection to the hunk who inhabits her dreams remains so strong. She is convinced she knew him in a past life and needs to resolve their history before she can move on.
Frustrated with herself, she takes a bath, which is interrupted by the ghost who has haunted her for years. The apparition persuades her to travel to the cathedral in Chartres, France, where the answers to her questions can be found.
In 1202, Aiden Delacroix also travels to Chartres Cathedral. He hopes that a visit there can cure him of the curse that has left him without the wife he desperately needs. As he reaches the center of the famed labyrinth at the cathedral, he comes face to face with a woman so beautiful that she could be a fallen angel. Thinking she is the answer to his prayers, he proposes marriage to her. Claire recognizes Aiden as the man in her dreams, but marriage is not her goal—answers are. In her attempt to escape the proposal, Claire runs deeper and deeper into bizarreness until she finally realizes she has entered the past. With no one but Aiden to help her, she makes an uneasy pact with him.
Though neither of them know it, love is the answer to both their problems. A fast moving, enjoyable tale, THE LAST BRIDE will entice you into finishing it in one sitting. Don't start reading unless you have enough free time!
