the main characters like Morgan Le Fay.
Morgan Le Fay was a Queen and a sorceress. Who cast a spell to time travel to 1879 Connecticut to get revenge on Sir Boss Hank Morgan. Instead she got Washington 2079.
She gets involved with politics and offered to be Campaign Boss for reelection of American President Malory Beckham. Also she ends up owning a London Knights baseball franchise.
While this is a clean read, the characters have a lot of bad sides to them. Lots of sleeping around, murder, power hungry which made it hard for me to care about what happened to them.
Morgan did grow as a character and I respected her towards the end of the book, but took a lot for me to care.
I think she did a good job of staying true to Mark Twain's Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court. Blending the past with the future.
There is lots of drama, humor, baseball, royalty and magic in this tale.
The setting is the past, future, England, America.
I was given this ebook to read and in return agreed to give a honest review and be part of King Arthur's Sister in Washington's Court blog tour.

Queen Morgan lands in the year 2079 in the United States. She is quickly rushed to Washington D.C. to assist a presidential candidate to win the re-election and govern the country.
After the election is won, Queen Morgan helps the new president, Malory Beckham, to rule the country but is soon lured to London, where she buys a baseball team.
The bulk of the story is about the ups and downs of Morgan’s life as a baseball owner. Throughout the story she is looking for a way to return to her own time so she can reconcile with and save her brother King Arthur, who she left dying on the battlefield.
During her time in the contemporary world she encounters deceit, finds and loses love and learns a lot about herself. If the reader enjoys King Arthur tales and baseball stories this is the book for you. This reader would have preferred to see more of the activities with Malory Beckham and Morgan’s adjustment to living in the modern world as well as her efforts to get back to her own time.
Overall King Arthur’s Sister in Washington’s Court is a fun romp through time, just not necessarily this reader’s cup of tea.
King Arthur's Sister is set in our future and focuses on Morgana, still very much the Queen of mystical arts, although not as dark as in her earlier times. OK, that may be up for debate.
Finding herself in an unfamiliar era, Morgan associates with infuential, powerful, wealthy people.
It is not until the very end of the book that we learn in detail how Morgan came to this particular time.
The last hour of reading this book was my favorite part.
I did not go into this book with any preconceptions. Perhaps I was expecting more of a political story, Morgan aiding Malory Hinton in her aspirations as President for Life. Those sections of the book were exciting.
While interesting, the details of the ball games and owning and managing a champion level baseball team slowed down the reading for me. I appreciated the comparisons between different eras and between running a kingdom and a successful business.
Along with the political and business storylines, included is Morgan's tumultuous romance with her personal assistant "Sandy" who resembles her prior consort, Sir Accolon.
This era's Morgan seemed softer, more open and adaptable.
I was relieved when she fired Sandy (again) rather than give in to his ultimatum.
There is a brief moment in the story where Morgan is actually vulnerable.
If this had not been resolved as quickly as it did, I have no doubt Morgan would have conjured up magical aid. Fortunately her powerful friends came to rescue her. I may have enjoyed that section to be a bit beefier, last longer.
It seemed to resolve too easily without enough consequences.
I want to suggest that at the end of the book you do not stop.
Read the author notes. I enjoyed them very much.
I believe this book has the potential to be an excellent movie and the beginning of a mini series.
I received an ecopy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
