Gwen wanted to believe that her real first name – Guinevere – was nothing more than the byproduct of a father's obsession with the legends of Merlin, an obsession that had cost him his job and ultimately ruined both their lives.
Yet, when she encounters a monster in a dark alley bent on killing her and meets Lance, her movie-star gorgeous rescuer who explains the truth about them and who he is – Lancelot, from King Arthur's court – there's no way she can believe that he's just some insane man who claims to still be answering King Arthur’s battle cry after fifteen hundred years, especially when she meets the other knights and discovers she is being targeted by beasts sent to hunt them long ago by the evil witch, Morgan Le Fey.
Gwen is pulled into a battle for her life. But as the pieces in a complex plan put together by Merlin himself fall in place and Gwen with the knights pursues the source of Morgan's evil, she is soon afraid for much more than her life, for Lance wins her affection, and soon her heart. Is it a true love?Will Lancelot still fight for Guinevere? Will he pick up his sword as he did for hundreds of years, or will he realize that despite his vow, he didn’t really love Gwen but a medieval queen that had been dead for over a thousand years?
I love paranormal books and a secret love that I have is for are stories about King Arthur, his knights, Merlin things like that. When I read the description about Knight Defenders I was curious, excited and honestly a little worried that the author wouldn’t be able to do one of my secret loves justice. I can say without a shadow of a doubt that Victoria Sue not only did an amazing job with the twist she gave this classic story but I have a feeling this is going to be a series that I won’t be able to help but love.
Lance, some of you may know him as Lancelot, you know one of King Arthur’s Knights, round table, had a thing for Guinevere. Yep that’s Lance, he still isn’t comfortable with all things 21st Century but he must battle the monsters created to destroy him and the remaining knights so he has no choice but to be a part of the modern world. It’s saving a woman in an alley that his future is changed in a heartbeat, because Gwen isn’t just someone who sees the monsters she shouldn’t be able to , she is Lance’s other half of his soul.
Gwen is named after Guinevere; her father loved all things King Author and his knights. When Lance rescues her it’s not only coincidence that her name is the same name of the woman Lance is said to have loved. Who can really measure up to that type of thing right? What Gwen doesn’t understand is it’s not Guinevere that Lance wants, it’s her. Even when other obstacles get between them, nothing can change the connection between them.
Knight Defenders was different, but it was a good different and to be honest it was refreshing for an author to take such a loved classic fable and turn it into something more modern and with the perfect paranormal element. I enjoyed it very much and I hope that the next book releases soon because I am already addicted.
“Knight Defenders by Victoria Sue is a fun read, with humor, the unbelievable, one woman with sass and attitude, as well as a heart as big Texas and one brave knight who just may be falling for the right woman at the right time. Enjoy the magic, the action and the mystery of King Arthur’s men. Fun reading! Fast reading! The author, Victoria Sue has done a stand up job of blending myth, magic and mirth in a magnetic page turner!” ~ 5 Star Goodreads Review (Diane)
Has loved books for as long as she can remember. Books were always what pocket money went on and what usually Father Christmas brought. When she ran out of her kids' adventure stories, she would go raid her mom's. By the age of eight she was devouring classics like Little Women, and fell in love with love stories.She's still in love with them. Any size, any shape, any creature - love is love, no matter what it says on the box.In fact if they don't fit very neatly into any box she loves them even more!She has a very patient husband and three wonderful children. In 2010 in search of adventure they all moved from the UK to the US and are happily settled in Florida. Finally, after reading love stories for so long, she decided to write her own.
