Genre: Historical Romance
Sensuality: HOT
Setting: Arthurian England

RT Rating

The enticement of Rowley's re- imagining of the Camelot legend is how cleverly she manipulates the myths surrounding Arthur, Guinevere and Lancelot, adding touches of reality and twists of plot that leave us to wonder what might have been. But this is not a tale for readers rooted in the legend; it's for those willing to see another side of Camelot and indulge in a simply written medieval romance.

First Knight Lancelot du
Lac is infallible in battle as long as
he keeps his vows to Arthur. But there
are times he thinks his gift is also
a curse. In an attempt at normalcy,
and to please the queen, he poses
as an ordinary knight entering a
tournament. On the way, he stops
at Corbenic Castle.

Elaine of Corbenic is trying to
hold her family and home together while her father becomes increasingly obsessed with finding the Holy Grail, and her brother, maimed by Lancelot
in a joust, drinks. The kindly knight who rides into the keep could be her salvation, but that is before she learns his true identity. Lancelot is forced to choose between his pride and Elaine
to set his life on track and be free of the curse that binds him to Camelot. (Jove, Sep., 350 pp., $6.99)
