Why did we pick this book?
We enjoy a good fantasy from time to time, and the plot line drew us in. A re-imagination of the Arthurian legend? Um, yes please! Plus, we love a good forbidden romance trope so this is up our alley. The book’s synopsis features the words “forbidden romance,” “deadly josts,” and “duplicitous knights.” What more could you ask for?
What is the book about?
The Guinevere Deception is a re-imagination of the Arthurian legend. Princess Guinevere has arrived in Camelot to marry the illusive King Arthur. Magic is threatening the kingdom, and the great wizard, Merlin, has sent Guinevere to marry Arthur…and become his protector. Except Guinevere is harboring a secret.
