I've got it all, but there is still one thing I need.
I just didn’t know it.
Quiet, competent, and sexy,
She was my destiny.

A girl in the wings.

I’ve never been part of the limelight.
All I wanted was to be a success in my own right.

The Return of the Prodigal Son
The Cranky gossip columnists have a scoop for you!

Arturo King, the front man for the band The Nights, and carrying more baggage than Donald Trump’s hairdresser, is playing at the place where it all started. That’s right: The Round Table.

King, the legendary womanizer and secret love child of Ingrid Tintagel and Locke Uther, stands to inherit the multi-billion dollar label of Camelot Records. Here’s hoping he can keep his shareholders as happy

First off, I'm gonna do the readers a favor by telling them up front to look for comparisons to King Arthur, that might help you to catch some things that I missed. I don't have a lot of knowledge about the original story, I just enjoyed the movie with Sean Connery & Richard Gere. It wasn't until I got to the end of the book and read the author's notes that I started reviewing the details of the book and feeling the whole *fist to forehead* thing. Howeve

Being a fan of all kinds of literature, the thought of a modern day King Arthur’s Court story intrigued me! As I started to read The Legend of Arturo King my mind went right back to my childhood, remembering some of my favorite characters. So, history and rock stars, two of my favorite things combined and OFF WE GO!

Arturo and Guinevere (aka Guinie) come from the same world yet they are worlds apart. He’s the hot, cocky, panty melting rockstar and she is the daughter of a local music mogul Leo De
Very clever writing, LB Dunbar has applied her own spin of this tale of Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table.

This is my first book by author LB Dunbar. She is known for taking classic stories and giving them a modern twist. That being said, I couldn't wait to dive into The Legend of Arturo King and check it out for myself.

This book started off a little slow for me, however once I got into it, I was hooked. The Legend of Arturo King is a modern retelling of King Arthur. I knew some of what King Arthur's story was about, so I was excited to see where LB Dunbar would take us! This story takes you for an i

I love the rockstar spin on the King Arthur tale. I've been a huge fan of those characters and to see them in such a different light was amazing.

The author did a great job of keeping a majority of the characteristics for all the major players and giving us a fresh take on the love and drama that they're so famous for.

Arturo King is the famous lead singer of the popular band, The Nights. Living the life of the typical rock stars, he's enjoying the comforts and perks that come with it.

I'm sitting here a day after finishing this book, trying to put into words my thoughts and feelings about it. The Legend of Arturo King is not your typical rockstar story. It's a tale taken from the Legend of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table, but given a new and modern twist. It's compelling, it's intriguing, it was strangely addicting.

This was the first book I have read by LB Dunbar, it definitely won't be the last. I was drawn into this story from the first page, I didn't want it to end. It was told from duel POV's. I like to know what both main characters are thinking so that was a nice added bonus!
LB Dunbar took the legend of King Arthur and his knights of the roundtable and transformed it into a modern day tale. She did a fantastic job of giving the legend a modern day twist.

An epic love story!
Arturo King is the sexy lead singer of the rock band The Nights who has an intriguing family history. Guinevere DeGrance is the beautiful daughter of the owner of The Round Table, the club where the band got its start. What started out as a walk through Central Park blossomed into a love affair for the ages.
This fantastic fairytale romance has plenty of passion, surprising revelations and teary-eye moments, It will captivate you from the start and take you on emotional roller

The Legend of Arturo King captured my attention from the very beginning until the very end. I absolutely loved the way LB Dunbar used King Arthur and the Knights of the Roundtable as inspiration for her story. For me, it added an additional level of familiarity and intimacy to each character! Positively brilliant and refreshing! Arturo, sexy, gorgeous, rockstar, falls for the beautiful, innocent, shy, Guinevere. Their attraction is instantaneous but complicated. As the story unfolds, you realize ...more

So much infodumping. And it's very scattered, like one thing has absolutely nothing to do with the other, but they're mentioned as if one is a natural progression into the other.

"I'm the lead singer of a band. I like tacos. Leo's not here tonight, he said something about his daughter or whatever? I wasn't paying attention. They say I look like I'm orgasming when I sing this part. The ladies love me and I grew up in a tough neighborhood, but sometimes I just want to feel numb from it all and no

Great new twist on an old story.
I love the modern version of a legend. I wasn't sure what to think when I started reading, but I'm happy I did.
Arturo seems to be finding himself as much as Guinie is. I loved seeing all the pieces come together.
So many questions I want answers to and I know I'll find them in the rest of the series which I'll be reading.

Never did I think that those words would break my heart, but alas they have.

It is no secret that I absolutely adore LB Dunbar. From her first book Sound Advice to her third book Fragrance Free I have been hooked on her sweet, homegrown style of romance writing. So when I heard she was going in an entirely different direction with her new series I was a little leery. Excited to read it, but still leery because I wasn't sure that I could get past my predisposed idea of what her

As I discussed before I am a complete book snob, it's not even really that, it's just I know what I like in a novel and I know what doesn't work for me. Rock stars fall into that iffy hit-or-miss category simply because any time I have delved into the world of rock gods I come out annoyed and bored from the tedium of groupies and drugs and heavy-laden angst. But to discover that L.B Dunbar who up until now has been the queen of tender-hearted romance reminiscent of Mia Sheridan's writing, was tu ...more

I don't even know where to begin with this review, this book blew me away. Sadly for me, this is the first book that I've read from L.B. Dunbar, though her books have been on my e-reader for quite some time. It was smartly and cleverly written and the tale that she was able to tell was enchanting to say the least. There are multiple references to the story King Author (see the title) through the characters and some of the situations; just a more modern version. I got invested in the characters a ...more

I was given an ARC by the author for an honest review.

I started this book after reading Colleen Hoover's latest book and I thought I probably would take a day or two before getting hooked due to that fact. Actually, it didn't and if I'm being honest if I read this prior to Colleen Hoover's book I would have taken longer to read hers. I was hooked from the first page for many reasons.

Reason One: The descriptions and details. L.B. Dunbar doesn't use the cliché and typical descriptions I've often

I took a huge risk requesting to review this for two reasons. The first being that unfortunately I am one of those readers that don't particularly gravitate towards books about Rockers, I don't often enjoy them. And secondly I have LB Dunbar's Sound Advice that I have struggled to finish reading. So I was interested to see if this would hold my attention and perhaps sway me.

He enjoys the best of everything and the company of many women. However, he never feels anything for the women he beds. All that changes when Guinevere DeGrace re-enters his life.

This is a modern day re-telling of the tale of King Arthur. I loved Arturo and Guinevere right from the beginning. Arturo is a sexy, confident rocker who always gets what he wants, yet feels empty,

Each story captivates, enthralls, and wraps it's words around your heart. I will say each book in the Sensation Collection has brought me to tears, and this new series has already started the same way. Good tears mind you.
