Risa of the Morelands has been cursed since birth, having been promised by her father to the evil sorcerer Euberacon in order to save her mother's life. She tries to flee this horrific fate, but Euberacon slays her escort. Just when Risa fears all is lost, Sir Gawain, captain of King Arthur's round table, rides to her rescue and Euberacon is temporarily driven off.

Gawain is heading back to Camelot to warn the king about treachery and sorcery afoot; he learns that Risa too has seen evil plotting. Together they set out for Camelot, but evil forces are arrayed against them.

Based on the famous poem "Sir Gawain and the Green Knight," this novel delivers passion, danger and excitement laced with fantasy. Although Luna bills this as straight fantasy, readers can expect a historical romance with few fantastic elements. SWEET. (Mar., 384 pp., $13.95)
