King Athur is thought to be a legend. But what if the legends were based on the truth?
Enthroned: Book One After posing with a rusty sword for a photo in a British graveyard, Britt Arthurs is pulled through time all the way back to the age of King Arthur where the shockingly young and handsome Merlin is waiting for her. The wizard has some bad news: the real Arthur has run off with a shepherdess, and whoever pulls the sword from the stone is to become the King of England. Unfortunately for Britt, the sword slides out like butter when she pulls it after fighting with Merlin. Long Live King Arthurs!
Enchanted: Book Two After she is successfully crowned King of Britain and vanquishes those opposed to her rule, Britt thought life would settle down and she could peacefully pretend to be the real King Arthur and search for the lost Round Table. However, her enemies aren’t cowed yet. King Lot sends his beautiful wife, Morgause, and his four sons to Camelot as ambassadors, but Britt doubts their good will when knight after knight falls in love with the foreign queen. Merlin reveals that Morgause has cast an enchantment on the knights of Camelot, an enchantment he cannot break. As a result, Britt is betrayed by some of her closest knights and becomes an outcast in her own kingdom. To win back her men, Britt will have to make costly sacrifices, survive attempts against her life, and gain the loyalties of Gawain—the eldest son of King Lot and Queen Morgause.
Embittered: Book Three Peace rules in Camelot, and Britt is satisfied with her life as the stand in for King Arthur. Or she was, until Lancelot shows up. Britt is forced by Merlin to welcome the young knight into her courts, and life goes downhill from there. King Leodegrance, a close ally who also happens to have the Round Table, which Britt dearly wants, is attacked by the foul Duke Maleagent. Unwilling to abandon her ally and let the Round Table slip through her fingers, Britt rides with a party of knights to Leodegrance’s lands in hopes of providing help. Unfortunately the Round Table proves to be less than impressive, King Leodegrance is not the man Britt thought him to be, and, worst of all, Guinevere has set her romantic ambitions on Britt’s King Arthur persona. Leodegrance needs a champion to fight Maleagant or he will be ruined, but does Britt really need to do battle on behalf of a greedy man and his daughter whom Britt knows will bring ruin to Arthur and Camelot?
Embark: Book Four With the long awaited arrival of the Round Table, Britt introduces questing and a code of honor to her young knights. While Britt tries to sneak off on the first Order of the Round Table quest with Sir Gawain, King Pellinore, and the newly knighted Sir Tor, Merlin receives word of a threat against Britt’s life coming from the north.
Tensions are high with Sir Lancelot acting as a general pest, Sir Kay’s determination to swaddle Britt in safety, and Merlin’s complete failure to see Britt as anything more than a trusted friend. Can Britt survive the upheaval and establish the Round Table as a place of honor and chivalry?
Enlighten: Book Five It took Britt two years to be crowned King of Britain, raise Camelot, and establish the Round Table. It takes only a moment to bring everything crashing down on her. With the reveal of Britt’s biggest secret comes the revelation that her knights might never forgive her. While Britt flees for the safety of London and her knights wallow in anger at Camelot, help comes in the most unexpected of forms.
Endeavor: Book Six: Only a few weeks have passed since Britt—or, as most know her, King Arthur—was outed as a girl. Britt’s relationship with her knights is strained and precarious, Lancelot is mucking up everything from tournaments to questing, and Merlin starts to act strangely when a beautiful girl named Lady Vivien comes to Camelot.
Can Britt reclaim her knights’ loyalty? Will Merlin finally realize how much Britt means to him?

King Arthur and Her Knights Reviews:
“I finished it in one day and I loved how I laugh while reading it. However, I want more progress with the story. I hope Ms. KM Shea will make a longer story next time because I can’t get enough of Britt and her adventure.” – Irish @ Socially Awkward
“…I find what Shea is doing with the legends really interesting. She obviously knows even the obscure ones relatively well and has done her homework on the evolution of the Arthurian mythos, if her author’s commentary is any indication. She’s making deliberate choices on her huge cast of characters’ personalities and actions, sometimes combining who they are in different versions of the legend to make one composite character.” – SamoaPhoenix @ Camelot’s Library
“This book WAS well written and the characters very attention grabbing. The settings were described so well I could almost feel the cold of the winter season…” – Wordie @ In My Very Own Words
