Lucan by Susan Kearney - Contest

Lucan (Pendragon Legacy)
by Susan Kearney
Forever (September 5, 2009)

[The contest portion of this post has closed. Thanks to everyone who participated!]

From the publisher: Healer and high priestess of her people, Lady Cael is fated to life without a mate. But a mysterious explorer named Lucan Rourke doesn't know her secrets, and his touch makes her crave a future that her extraordinary birthright has forbidden her. . .

Lucan has just one mission on Pendragon: to find the mythical Holy Grail, Earth's only hope for survival. His powerful attraction to Cael is a distraction he can't afford, unless he convinces her to join forces with him. Yet working so closely together only heightens their passion . . . even when the terrifying truth of Cael's heritage threatens to shatter Lucan's every belief-and the galaxy itself.

For an excellent interview with Susan go to Yankee Romance Reviewers. She discusses her thoughts on the Arthurian legends and how she incorporated this into this trilogy. Yes, there are two more books coming, and they are already on my must read list. Although I haven't posted a review on Lucan, I have read and enjoyed it. The story of Arthur with a strong SF element works in a quite interesting way. Good characters. Good story. Good writing. What more can a reader want?

Book 2 in the series Rion (Pendragon Legacy) will be available November 24.


Marisa Rourke is a beautiful, fearless telepath who tames dragonshapers on Earth. Rion is a tall, dark, and sexy space explorer whose home planet is a galaxy away. The attraction between them is undeniable, but Rion is hiding a desperate secret that will change Marisa's life forever.


Marisa's gift is the only way Rion can communicate with his people, enslaved by a powerful enemy. He knows that kidnapping her is wrong, but saving his planet is worth sparking the fiery clairvoyant's fury. Yet hotter-and more explosive-is the psychic bond growing between Marisa and Rion. Could their passion be the key to freeing Rion's people? Only if he and Marisa can discover how to channel their desire . . . before a vicious enemy destroys them all.

Susan is made of the awesomeness that is awesome. She is not only a great writer, but helps other writers.

Lucan will be another acorn that doesn't fall far from an amazing tree.

Is it wrong to say that I'd get these books just for the covers?
