"Suppose you are both telling the truth, magic exists, and you both are part of a prophecy. Where do I fall in all of this? Why are you both here in my life?" ~Maggie

Maggie Sanders suffered an injury while at war in Afghanistan, one that left her honorably discharged from the army. Now she is home in Washington D.C. running her mothers used bookstore. While working she accidently cuts her hand on a broken edge of her glass counter. Se watches as blood spills from her hand on to a book she was just reading and unknowingly summons King Arthur Pendragon. THE King Arthur.

Legend states when the King Arthur is needed most he will return. What if the legends are wrong?

Arthur has been trapped on Avalon( a mythical island) with his men, his wife Gwen and Lancelot. Unbeknownst to the others Arthur has a portal and from time to time has been summoned randomly to people who need assistance. The last time he was summoned he barely escaped with his life. Nevertheless he can’t help but wonder will he will be going this time.

‘His excitement swirled with a hint of dread. Where would he go this time, and who would he have to kill?’

Maggie thinks she is having heart attack when she is knocked off her feet on to the floor. After getting back on her feet she suddenly comes to realize that a man is under the ruble. A NAKED man. 
Arthur does not sense any trouble coming Maggie’s way so he asks her point blank
"My lady, why am I here?"

Unfortunately she can’t answer him. She has no clue why or how he is even there. Slowly she comes to realize there is more to the naked man who magically appeared in her bookstore. And that may be just maybe he is who he claims to be Arthur Pendragon. As he and Maggie start to build a friendship other familiar characters surface. Both Merlyn and Arthur work to find a way to free the others from Avalon while a friend turned enemy plans to fight Arthur for the woman he loves.

My Thoughts
This was a quick fun take on a legend who is familiar to us all. We get a broken hearted Arthur who is still clearly upset about the betrayal of his wife Gwen and Lancelot getting together. This is written in a fantasy manner and sort of reminded me of the movie Enchanted were classic characters cross over in to the real world. Of course this had a bit more of a sexy edge to it with a couple sex scenes that will leave you squirming in your seat. Overall I enjoyed it!

My Ratings
Characters- Sweet
Writing Style- Good
Plot/Storyline- Light and Fun with classical characters brought to life
Steam Factor- Medium//Moderately Steamy
Overall- I liked it!!!

Now go forth and read. Then come tell us about it!

Legend states when King Arthur is needed most he will return. What if the legends are wrong?

Maggie Sanders gave six years and two feet of her now scarred and twisted body to the United States Army. She received a thank you note and a discharge in return. Effectively booted to the curb Maggie tries to pick up the piece of her life until her revival is interrupted by one smoking hot immortal.

Arthur Pendragon, legendary King and military leader, has been trapped on the mythical island of Avalon for 1500 years. When he is thrust from captivity to the modern world he has to fight to stay there. Too bad for him, she has more fight than he anticipates. With the help of Maggie and a teenage Merlin, Arthur set outs to end his torture and free the rest of his comrades from imprisonment.
