After Hank Morgan of Hartford, Connecticut, takes a blow to the head, he inexplicably awakens in sixth-century Camelot. At first lost and confused, the time traveler soon realizes that he can use modern knowledge and his ability to foretell the future to his advantage. Consequently, he is granted a place in the king’s court as Arthur’s right-hand man. When the Catholic Church grows fearful of his power, the Connecticut Yankee aims higher and concocts a grandiose plan to bring American ideals to sixth-century England to change the future.

In his imaginative comedy, Mark Twain infuses the eternal story of King Arthur with wit and satirizes past social hierarchies as well as nineteenth-century meritocracy.

More cherished than gold are the Jewels of Kinfairlie, and only the worthiest may fight for their love...The Laird of Kinfairlie has unmarried sisters, each a gem in her own right. And he has no choice but to see them all wed in haste.

Lady Madeline’s heart is not for sale...especially not to a notorious outlaw like Rhys FitzHenry. Yet Madeline’s hand has been sold, to none other than this battle-weary warrior with a price on his head. A more dutiful maiden might cede to the Laird’s command and meekly accept her fate, but Madeline has never been obedient. She decides to run away, though she never dreams that Rhys will pursue her. She does not expect this taciturn man to woo her with fanciful stories, much less that each of his enthralling tales will reveal a scar upon his shielded soul. She never imagines that a man like Rhys could imperil her own heart while revealing so little of his own feelings. When Rhys’s past threatens his future, Madeline takes a leap of faith. She dares to believe him innocent — and risks her own life to pursue a passion more priceless than the rarest gem.

Broken hearts aren't always broken. Sometimes they're just bruised.

Desperate to forget her worthless ex-boyfriend and the humiliating way in which they parted, Martha Bigalow goes on a long hike in the rain, hoping the dramatic scenery of the English Lake District will ease her unhappy heart. But as she crosses an ancient set of stepping stones, she tumbles into an angry river.

Time Travel. Sideways.

She wakes up in a cave, wearing nothing but her dodgy, mismatched underwear, and her only company is the strange man who saved her life. Tall, dark, and extremely handsome, Vadim definitely has the potential to help Martha forget. But this isn't the twenty-first century, and medieval Erde is nothing like home!

If Martha wants to fit in here, she'll need a lot of help, but Vadim's protection comes at a price. In order to secure his aid, she must assume the role of his "wife."

Vadim is a wanted man. An outlaw.

The last thing his life needs are complications of the female kind. But when he happens upon the strangely attired woman lying beside the river, he cannot abandon her. And so, despite all the risks, and against his better judgment, Vadim offers to help Martha find her way home.

But until then, Martha must adapt to medieval society, to avoid the Evil Earl and his minions, and maybe--just maybe--learn how to trust her heart again.

(Polite warning! This book is NOT a standalone. Please steer clear if cliffy endings aren't your thing!)
