Averil

She may be the Lord's illegitimate daughter, but Averil knows her dazzling beauty can buy her what she wants most: marriage to a great and powerful lord. But fate has other plans in the rugged form of Rhys FitzHugh. Thinking her the sole heiress, the penniless bailiff kidnaps the beauty. Now, to salvage his honor, he must marry the openly hostile Averil and accept his greatest challenge—winning her love, her loyalty, and her trust. . .

Maia

As the legitimate heiress with a hefty dowery, Maia can have any man she chooses, namely Emrys Llyn, a descendant of Lancelot and the Lady of the Lake. But strange, dangerous rumors surround the handsome Emrys. . .his name means "immortal," and two of his wives have died suddenly under mysterious circumstances. Can her unwavering love prove his innocence. . .or will Maia suffer the same fate as Emrys's previous wives?

Junia

As charming as she is irrepressible, Junia is the Lord's youngest daughter. Her father has long since given up trying to control her whims. Junia is content to roam the countryside where she can be alone with the golden-haired Richard de Bohun, whom she meets and loves in secret. But he is the son of her father's sworn enemy, and loving him may cost more than she could ever imagine. . .

    Horrible

    This book was truly what I would call poorly-written. To start with, it was full of grammar mistakes. I found this annoying because there were numerous ones in every chapter. With all the editing books go through, this should not happen at all. The only story I felt had potential was the first one, Averil's. However, I felt the story did not end at a place that wrapped up her story well. It should have been more developed. The magical element in the second story didn't flow, and I could never really get into the story. The third tale was truly horrendous. Plot development was lacking, and it ended in a way that didn't fit with the rest of the story. Reading it was unbearable. While I do feel that Bertrice Small has written some good romances, this was definitely not one of them.

    A MUST READ!!!!!

    Set in ancient Britain before the dark ages, a definite page turner. Ms Small fans will not be dissappointed. Full of lust, passion, excitement, loyalty and honor. You can't help but feel for Junia (you'll know what I mean when you finish the book).

    three refreshing well-written Arthurian novellas

    ¿Averil¿. In Everleigh, Godwine Fitzhugh extracts a deathbed promise from his wrong side of the sheets son Rhys to care for his legitimate heir six year old Mary and to ¿steal an heiress¿, suggesting the Pendragon girl. Rhys journeys to Dragon Lair in Welshry and abducts Averil Pendragon to be his wife, but not realizing that she, like him, is illegitimate. <P>¿Maia¿. The legitimate heir Maia rejects all her suitors insisting that her beloved, who she has met in her dreams, will come for her soon. Emrys Llyn, the Lord of the Lake, arrives to court Maia. He claims to be a descendent of Lancelot and the Lady of the Lake. He admits he lost two previous wives who suddenly died for no known reason. As Emrys and Maia fall in love, will the jealous Lady of the Lake tragically end their relationship? <P>¿Junia¿. Two years later, Junia misses her married sisters, but meets Simon de Bohun and over time they fall in love. Simon tells his dad that he wants to marry Junia, but his cruel father Hugo will never accept a Pendragon. Over a century ago, a feud between the clans formed leaving no hope for the star-crossed lovers. When Junia and Simon meet to say goodbye, Hugo captures her, making it even more impossible for the lovers. <P>The three novellas are refreshing well-written tales that move forward the Arthurian legend a few centuries though the audience needs to know that Junia is raped. The three sisters, descendents of Arthur, make delightful protagonists that fans of Bertrice Small and the Camelot mythos will value highly and want a sequel starring their brother Brynn. <P>Harriet Klausner

    Good idea, poorly written

    The idea of a romantic novel about King Arthur's descendants is great, but this book is poorly written and does not live up to the expectation of Beatrice Small fans. Instead of weaving a single cohesive story about three sisters falling in love, each part is disjointed and ends abruptly as though the author remembered she had another book to write.

    The book progresses from disappointing ending with the eldest daughter to downright aborted ending with the youngest daughter. How can the author possibly introduce a romantic hero in the last 20 pages of the story? Junia's story begins on page 235, on page 337 her hero is introduced, and on page 359 the story ends. There is no romance or love story for Junia, ever. Her first love interest is hardly the hero and we only know that she finds love again because Beatrice Small writes less than one page to tell us that she does. The ending to the second story is only slightly better, in that at least the romantic plot is consistent, but poorly executed. The first story is disappointingly mediocre, but it is clearly where all the creative energy of this book is focused. Such a disappointing read.

    a let down

    I have always loved betrice Small, but after this book I am not sure if I can ever read her again. I enjoyed the first story of Averil but thought it should be longer. The secound story also hade potential but fell short a few pages. However the third storie was one I could have done without. I would have rather read about the son Brynn then read the storie she wrote for Junie. The one scene alone gave me nightmares. I understand the times she is wrighting about but felt there could have been a better ending for Junie.

    Very disappointing -- terrible writing

    I have read other things by Bertrice Small that I liked, but this book is awful. No character development, stiff dialogue -- and some odd ventures into vulgarity that seemed really out of place. At times I felt like I was reading the script for a bad porn movie. The writing was just really immature -- more like a first attempt at writing romance than work by an established author.
