Lex Croucher’s queer medieval romcom, Gwen and Art Are Not In Love publishes today in the UK with Bloomsbury.

Lex has already had some incredible reviews from Alice Oseman, Rainbow Rowell, Casey McQuiston and Becky Albertalli. There are also some amazing launch week events including Lex speaking at Gay’s the Word Bookshop tonight.

Gwen, the quick-witted Princess of England, and Arthur, future lord and general gadabout, have been betrothed since birth. Unfortunately, the only thing they can agree on is that they hate each other.

When Gwen catches Art kissing a boy and Art discovers where Gwen hides her diary (complete with racy entries about Bridget Leclair, the kingdom’s only female knight), they become reluctant allies. By pretending to fall for each other, their mutual protection will be assured.

But how long can they keep up the ruse? With Gwen growing closer to Bridget, and Art becoming unaccountably fond of Gabriel, Gwen’s infuriatingly serious, bookish brother, the path to true love is looking far from straight …

‘A total, rollicking delight … Lex Croucher is one of my favourite romcom authors, and they should be yours, too.’ – CASEY MCQUISTON, #1 New York Times bestselling author of I KISSED SHARA WHEELER and RED, WHITE AND ROYAL BLUE

‘Congrats to Gwen and Arthur on their permanent acquisition of my ENTIRE heart. Suffice it to say that I loved this book to a degree that’s slightly ridiculous’ BECKY ALBERTALLI, bestselling author of SIMON VS. THE HOMOSAPIENS AGENDA

This hilarious book is sure to be an incredible hit and we can’t wait for everyone to meet Gwen and Art!

Happy Book Birthday Lex!
