Master of Swords

Wow. I have to admit to a fair few prejudices before starting this book. I’m an Arthur girl. I read The Once and Future King and Le Morte D’Artur. Sword in the Stone is my favourite Disney movie. I know all the words to the soundtrack of Camelot. I even sat through the dismal First Knight – ...

Knights of the Round Table: Lancelot

Elaine of Corbenic has a crumbling castle, an insane father, a crippled brother, and a slew of poor villagers who all depend on her. (Making her, thus far, your pretty typical romance novel heroine.) Lancelot du Lac is the greatest knight in the world, gifted by the magical Lady of the Lake with inh ...

A Connecticut Fashionista in King Arthur’s Court

Although A Connecticut Fashionista in King Arthur’s Court is labeled as a Time Travel Romance, it obviously has Chick Lit elements. While debut author Marianne Mancusi's writing is quite readable and smooth, the first half of the book is ordinary and lacked the elements of surprise I expect from T ...

For Camelot's Honor

For Camelot's Honor is the second book in a series featuring brothers from King Arthur's court. Although the novel is a bit predictable and mundane in the beginning, soon enough it becomes an emotionally packed and suspenseful book that is well worth the read. As the daughter of a Welsh chief ...

Derik's Bane

If you asked who the breakout star of 2004 was for me, I'd say MaryJanice Davidson. And if you asked me which book was the biggest disappointment, I'd tell you it was Derik's Bane. When I read Undead and Unwed I raved. The book was funny and witty and fresh. Same went, to a slightly lesser extent, f ...

Master of Temptation

Master of Temptation's intriguing premise made up for quite a few of its shortcomings. What if a handful of the remaining Knights of the Round Table carried on King Arthur’s ideals by forming their own secret society, and championed just causes and protected those who needed it? The Guardians o ...

In Camelot's Shadow

In Camelot's Shadow is not a relaxing read. I was sitting on the edge of my seat for most of this book wondering how the lead characters could possibly prevail over the evil they had to overcome. I also have a confession: I really don't know the "true" telling of Camelot. The last Camelot story I ha ...

The Maiden Warrior

Everyone knows the legend of King Arthur, the once and future king, who will rise again to defend Britain. Here there is a twist. The Britain of the legend is Wales, and when Arthur returns he is reborn as a woman - or so the Welsh rebels think. Aidan de Brice, the Scourge of Wales, remembers wha ...

Abandon

For any readers who are fans of the Fantasy genre as well as Romance, Abandon should be quite a treat. The book offers an unending series of exquisite fantasy details so seamlessly woven into the story that the effect is reminiscent of Magical Realism. If the romance reached the same standard the bo ...
