Lady Pendragon was awarded 5 BOOKS by Orchid over at LASR!!!!! Thank you, Orchid!
Below is a her review with the link back to LASR!
Molly Pendleton is 1500 years old, but that doesn’t keep someone from stealing one of the most precious things in her life - the Avalon Diaries. The thief has sold them to Collin Remington, entrepreneur with a dubious reputation. Unfortunately, by the time she catches up with the businessman, the diaries have been stolen by Lord Cardan who takes them back to the era of the Round Table.
Thanks to Merlin, Collin and Molly find themselves whisked back to the sixth century. For Molly it is a return to the years of her young adulthood, while Collin must come to terms with this new way of life.
Molly’s real name is Lady Mary Pendragon and she is the daughter of King Arthur and Queen Mildred who unfortunately could not seal their love with marriage. Magic weaves its way through Molly’s life, the magic of the Warrior Witches or Light Bearers of Merlin’s High Order. These Lady Knights are led by Molly.
Her return from the future upsets the balance of Arthur’s world and the timeline changes. People die before their time, others are evil when they should be good or good when they should be evil. Molly fights to bring the timeline back to where she knows it should be, but success continuously eludes her. Collin is trying to embrace life in the sixth century, but Molly doesn’t make it easy for him.
When I first picked up this book I thought it was going to be another Arthurian legend. Same story told in a different way. I was so wrong. This book takes the original legend and branches out into its own strong tale.
Lady Pendragon has magic, adventure, heroism and sword fighting. All good ingredients for an enthralling tale which also contains humor and romance. Elves, giants and many other magical creatures wander through the pages of this book, enriching the story with their own unique magic.
I would definitely recommend this book, especially if you like magic and Arthurian legends. And if you don’t like them, read it anyway. You will probably be converted. If this is a sample of Ms. Mathews' work I will certainly be reading other books by her.

Coffee Time Romance has reviewed my latest release at NCP, Lady Pendragon! Here is a snippet of the review!
Ms. Matthews has given the reader a new twist on the Arthurian legends. Arthur and his sisters are just as powerful, but come across as real people. Morganna is not all evil, and Queen Gwen is a silly over religious woman, not Arthur’s true love, but not the backstabbing adultress either. The plot is full of interesting characters both magical and mundane, and the storyline is full of excitement and unexpected twists and turns. The highlight of the story is the love story between Collin and Molly. Once I got past his being the grandson of her best friend in another time, I enjoyed their story immensely. Both strong characters, their story is not smooth, but they complement each other perfectly. I really enjoyed my trip back in time to Camelot, and Ms. Matthews’ take on the legend.
