"A refreshingly unique spin on the myth." - Romance Reviews Today
Lancelot du Lac is the greatest knight of a peerless age, blessed by the Lady of the Lake with extraordinary military prowess. His fighting ability has earned him a place at King Arthur's side, but the powers the Lady has given him come with a terrible price.
Elaine of Corbenic is struggling to hold her impoverished family together. The keep is a wreck and the peasants, starving, are on the brink of rebellion. Elaine's father is obsessed with finding the Holy Grail, and her older brother, maimed by Lancelot in a joust, is a bitter drunkard. Without a dowry, she has little hope for the future.
Incognito, Lancelot rides into Corbenic on his way to the king's tournament. He finds the practical Elaine irresistible. Thoroughly dismayed when she reveals her contempt for "Lancelot," he must face his own arrogance to win her hand. For only with Elaine at his side will Lancelot have the strength to free himself from the enchantments that bind him…
Lancelot was released as the lead book in the series, but Gawain's story should be read first.
"Rowley pens a hilarious and spellbinding tale of knights, witches and love." -RT Reviews
Sir Gawain is a knight as good as is word. Fiercely loyal to Arthur, he will do anything to serve his king. So when a hideous creature promises to give Arthur the answer to a riddle that will save his life in exchange for Gawain's pledge to marry her, the knight does not hesitate.
But the loathly lady is not who she appears to be. In truth, she is the lovely Aislyn, former apprentice to a sorceress. She was once desperately in love with Gawain, who rejected her because of her magic--or so she believes. Now she has transformed herself so she may exact her revenge.
Yet Gawain's gallantry and courteous treatment soften Aislyn's bitter heart, and she is horrified to discover she has actually been enchanted. Only a kiss given with love can break the spell and restore her to the beautiful maiden she really is . . .
