Yesterday I had special guest Kathye Quick interviewed on my blog as part of her Virtual Book Tour with the online company Pump Up Your Book Promotion. Well today I’m going to be reviewing her historical romance novel Cynthia and Constantine which you can find out more about how she came to write it by checking out her author guest blog being posted tomorrow. I’ve read a couple of historical romances that have to do with the Knights of King Arthur and they’re all told so differently it’s always a pleasure reading how each author interprets the tale and makes a world of their own. The heroine of the novel, Lady Cynthia of Abertaine, is trapped and not only has her fiancé, Sir William Leyborne, not been back to the castle for over ten years, but she’s also not a titled Lady. From the start I felt that Lady Cynthia would have to go through a tough journey in order to find her true love so that she would finally have her happily ever after.Now Lord Simon of Cowell, a renegade warlord aligned with Mordred against Arthur and his Knights, has declared himself sovereign over Leyborne Castle and everything that once belonged to Sir William—including Cynthia. Which isn’t good at all because Cynthia’s life is now been turned upside down which can only change if someone would stand up to Lord Simon.
The hero of the novel, Sir Constantine, Knight of the Round Table, has come to the shire to give Cynthia the news that her fiancé has fallen in battle. With him is William’s oral will giving all he owns to Cynthia as though they had been wed which is both sad and exciting news for her. But when he finds Cynthia and discovers that the shire is under the control of an evil warlord, he knows he cannot leave without first driving Simon and his soldiers from the land. Drawn together by an attraction older than time, Cynthia and Constantine soon discover that though a vow made by a knight’s honor has brought them together, it may just also cost them their lives. This is one well written novel that I had so much fun reading that I had a hard time putting it down for too long because I wanted to know what would happen next for Cynthia and Constantine. Kathye Quicke has written a wonderful story filled with one adventure after another that will leaving you breathless and wanting more even after the novel ends. After reading this novel I’m anxious to see if Kathye continues writing about other Knights of the Round table since they are such fascinating characters to read about. I give this book 4 Open Books:

Here is the description of the book from Kathye Quick’s website and picture:

I'm a part-time aspiring romance novelist, book reviewer and blogger. I've always wanted to travel the world and learn everything I can about other countries. Learning the Italian language is one way of trying to make that dream come true. Traveling will help me with my writing because I'll be learning about the history of the U.S., Latin America, England, Italy, and Ireland, the countries I find so fascinating while reading the romance genre. I read and review romance novels of almost every subgenre along with erotic romance, mystery, sci-fi/fantasy and young adult novels. You can find the reviews at my blogs, Talk About My Favorite Authors and Phoebe Jordan's Reviews. I’ve also started a live podcast show called TAMFA | Phoebe Jordan hosted on Blog Talk Radio. This show is dedicated to everything I love about romance and young adult novels. I love having romance and young adult authors live on my show to be interviewed and showcase their books. I plan to write contemporary romance, romantic suspense, erotic romance, paranormal romance and young adult when I get my writing career started with help from Keta. I'm not sure what genre I'll write to begin with since I love to read so many different romance genres.
