Genderbent Bestseller—for fans of sword quests, magic school, and awkward crushes.
When the Sword in the Stone falls in the middle of London and Merlin goes to high school to recruit the next King Arthur, everything changes for Ryan…
17 year-old Boston high schooler, Ryan DuLac just found out the guy she's been crushing on, hot biker Matt, is a little older than he was letting on. By a few eons... In fact, he is really Merlin--the Merlin, King Arthur's Merlin, the greatest wizard who ever lived. Frozen in a cave for over fifteen hundred years, he's woken for a purpose. But Ryan's not impressed. Tired of being a relationship loser, she'd rather kick his legendary behind.
Sure, the world has been crazy ever since the sword and the stone fell out of the sky like a meteor. But despite gruesome gargoyles, a deadly new world of magic, and the guy driving her crazy, Ryan knows that family is everything. Will Merlin sacrifice hers to save the world? Will she be able to stop him?
~Excerpt My Boyfriend Merlin~
I got there too late.
Blood soaked the yellow walls of an otherwise cheerful kitchen. Through a lone window, soft moonlight illuminated a white towel with purple flowers, which hung beside drying dishes next to the sink. The kitchen was clean, except for the floor smeared with sticky red. Blood didn't bother me. It hadn't bothered since I made my first kill at the age of eleven.
I wiped my sword against my leg, not knowing why I bothered. Every sword I touched seemed to get dirty. However, this time, the sword wasn't mine. If only I was a few minutes sooner... I clamped down the thought. It never paid to look back.
For weeks, I'd watched her. She was stronger than she realized, surprisingly strong. But she wasn't the one I sought. Nothing special. Just a regular girl. Then why did you save her?

Great start with a first book!
Couldn't put it down. Fast paced and enthralling
I really loved this book!
Amazing!- but could you REALLY call all of that description?
This book is absolutely fabulous; if you DO put it down for even a second, it leaves you wondering what happens next. There was not near enough description as if she knew the gist of what happened, but didn't have all the details, as in the palace. I loved it, just wished I could have seen everything more clearly. Overall a great book, and I totally recommend it. And thank you for a fresh story line. (I love King Arthur plots!)
