Camelot & Vine
by Petrea Burchard
"This tale of an LA poser in King Arthur’s court combines character-driven writing with great pacing and action. The fact that it also includes fascinating period details, a tweaking of ancient legend, and a sexy King Arthur for grown ups makes it the perfect indulgence for those days when you just need to live in another millennium."
—Margaret Finnegan, author of The Goddess Lounge
