Young, lovely, and willful, Gwenhwyfar is chosen by Arthur to be his wife and future queen of Britain -- an honor she reluctantly accepts. Soon, however, she cannot ignore the awakening passion Britain's new king ignites. He is a lover who delights her with his touch, yet whose desires are not shared with her alone.
Seared by the forbidden kiss of Arthur's most trusted warrior, Lancelot, Gwenhwyfar is swept up into a world of unbidden passion, torn by loyalty and love for a husband who betrays her, and a man she cannot have.
In a time where good and evil clash, where magic and chivalry reign . . . love will prove as fierce a weapon as any sword.
