And I’m back again with another clip for you lovelies to enjoy! If you have already read Legendary, then you’ll know this part. If you haven’t, then hopefully this will wet your appetite.
“Heck if I remember. I forgot it as soon as I opened my eyes!” Percy shook his head then asked, “How did you find Owen?”
Owen squeezed her hand and gave her an encouraging smile. Aliana took a deep breath, trying to calm her nerves, tightening her grip on his hand.
“I already told you my parents died two years ago. After their deaths, I was going through their files and found two copies of my birth certificate. One with my parents’ names and another with the name of a woman I didn’t know.” Aliana felt the pain rushing to the surface. “I looked through more of the files, and I found an adoption record from a lawyer here in London. It wasn’t hard to put two and two together, and I realized I was adopted.” Aliana looked past everyone out the window, studying the lights of London.
“Your parents never told you?” Percy asked softly.
Shaking her head, Aliana put on her calm face, trying desperately to hide the sadness and betrayal she felt. “No, I confronted one of my father’s closest friends, my godfather, and he told me it was true. I made it my mission to track down the woman on my original birth certificate, but all I found was an address here. So, I got on a plane and went to the address, but it was a cemetery. She had died after giving birth to me.” Aliana bit her lip, forcing tears back.
“I found Aliana there that day,” Owen said. “The woman she had found was my aunt. I had gone to bring flowers to my mother and aunt’s graves and ended up bringing Aliana back to my place. We spent the night talking, getting to know each other. Luckily for Aliana, she now has a smashing cousin to look after her.”
“Whatever.” Aliana couldn’t help her watery giggle as Owen hugged her closer. “It’s more the other way around. I swear Owen can’t do a thing on his own. I don’t know how he managed to live to nineteen.” Owen retaliated, pinching her in the arm.
Hope you enjoyed this little snip it form Legendary and the meme that was created!

Finally!! It is time to reveal the final cover of Legendary created by my fantastic publisher Omnific! We also have the official blurb to go with it!
LEGENDARY by L.H. Nicole
Aliana Fagan spent her childhood traveling the world, dreaming of legendary heroes and mythical lands. But after the sudden death of her parents, she hides behind the safety of her camera and her art until a vivid dream has her to digging into her father’s research about Avalon and Camelot. She is soon hurled into a magical realm by forces she thought were only the stuff of fairy tales, and finds herself thrown into an adventure she could have never imagined. And nearly everything she thought she knew about the Arthurian legends is wrong.
The independent eighteen-year-old is shocked to find that the people of Avalon think that she is the Destined One, the only person who can summon King Arthur back to life. Most surprising of all is that it’s up to her to lead the Knights of the Round Table on an epic quest—an adventure that will transport them across the seven magic realms to reclaim all that has been lost so they can defeat the evil Mordrid for good. First, she must bring the ancient warriors into her world and reunite them with their lost brothers. But chaperoning legendary knights-with-a-chivalry-complex is a constant challenge, and she certainly never thought she’d be caught between her intense feelings for the noble Sir Galahad and her growing friendship with the King.
To fulfill the prophecy, Aliana will have to discover the meaning of friendship, bravery, loyalty, true love, and forgiveness. But can she do it all in time to save the realms from Mordrid’s impending Armageddon?
We ready? Drum roll please

Laters my lovelies!

Fury twisted through my gut. I loathed this magic keeping me from my king’s side and Lady Aliana. Watching her in that canyon- helpless to aid her- was torture. Again I am cut off, unable to protect her and see that my king- my friend is indeed safe. I failed to protect Arthur and now Lady Aliana. I swear I will not allow this again! ~Galahad

In an effort to not repeat myself or give away any spoilers for Legendary, I have been driving myself crazy today trying to figure out what to do for Galahad’s 2nd sketch. I was talking to one of the Lady Knights of my Round Table when it hit me, these are character sketches, why not share a little bit of info that I keep in my ‘Legendary story guide’. (There are a lot of characters and details in the entire Legendary saga series and even I have problems keeping them all straight in my head, so I keep a record of all the information and pictures safely stashed in my story guide.)
So here is some of the “leaked” character info on our White Knight
hair: dark brown
family history: Grew up with a younger si…… *Hey now no spoilers!*
Sorry got a bit carried away there. I am also giving you all another juicy little piece of art besides the amazing painting above. In the first scene where Aliana finds Galahad she sees a shield laying below a mounted sword. This shield is Sir Galahad’s and it just so happens that a bit over a year ago, back when Legendary was still being written, I decided to draw his shield hoping to find many uses for it outside of my personal inspiration. Now I have a use for it; tell me what you think of it!
Later my lovelies!

Wade and I ate alone since Aliana was off on another of her ‘adventures’. Wade isn’t the type of person I normally associate with. He’s brash, American, loud-mouthed, American and a comedian. In spite of that, I liked him, maybe because he and I are totally opposites or because he understands loyalty. I’m glad Aliana has him in her life. ~Owen
Like his cousin Aliana, Owen Nyhart has suffered the death of both his parents and grown up as an only child. When he was younger he had dreams of being an Olympic swimmer for England. He spent fourteen years of his life doing everything he could to make his dream come true. Then his father was killed in the line of duty- as an inspector for Scotland Yard. Soon after his mother fell into a deep depression and Owen had to drop everything to take care of his mother and keep both his and his mother’s life from falling apart. Less than a year later and his mother died from the heart break, and he was left on his own, no other family to help him and no one he could really count on.
Despite all the tragedy and hardships he faced, and giving up on his dream of Olympic gold, Owen remains resilient and light hearted enough to not let the darkness he faced rule him. Even in his swimming career he was always a strategic swimmer rather than just relying on strength and stamina alone.
Now I don’t want to give everything away so you’re going to have to read Legendary to know how the Round Table is reunited in the 21st century, but I can say that his fighting style is very reminiscent of his swimming style. Strategy and cunning are more valuable to him that brute strength. And, if i do say so myself, it adds to his… “Englishman charm”.
till next time lovelies!
