KNIGHTS OF THE ROUND TABLE: GERAINT
Rowley begins her second foray into the world of Camelot with a scene that grabs your attention and then lets go, slowing the pace until she reaches a rousing climax. Those enamored of the Round Table will be entertained and enjoy this tale of a knight and his damsel.
A Prince of Cornwall and a Knight of the Round Table, Geraint rushes in to rescue a woman from attackers and is struck by her beauty and prowess with a sword. Their mutual and instantaneous attraction leads to a quick bedding and an even quicker marriage when they reach Camelot. There is no doubt they are well matched, but each has a mission: he to uncover if her tribe is a danger to Arthur and she to protect her clan. Torn between love and loyalty, they discover that by joining forces they can vanquish any enemy. (Jove, Mar., 410 pp., $6.99)
