The author of two highly praised novels, The Spiral Dance and American Woman, R. Garcia y Robertson returns with a charming time-travel romance sequence. In Knight Errant, Robyn Stafford, a young American woman hiking in England near the Welsh border, was swept back in time to the 1460s, the age of the War of the Roses. There she fell in love with a young knight, Edward, son of the Duke of York. Cast back in time by witchcraft, Robyn, a young executive from Hollywood, raised in Montana, has chosen to stay there out of love for Edward, who has promised to marry her.

Now in Lady Robyn, Robyn's fantasy of courtly romance comes up against the brute reality of medieval politics: the politics of murder, warfare, and betrayal. The War of the Roses is no longer a textbook subject, it's messing up her life, and so is the noble witch who, though he doesn't know it, is Edward's enemy. Edward's father, Richard, is making a bid for the throne, and if he wins it, Edward will be heir apparent. And if Robyn marries him, she will someday be queen and her children heirs to the throne as well. In the 1460s, that means living with the constant threat of death. The survival rate for heirs is not high. Will Robyn reject her love or risk the lives of her children to be?

This is an engrossing time-travel romance in the mold of Diana Gabaldon's bestselling timeslip tales.

Chapter 1
 
Tournament Day
 
Saturday, 26 July 1460, Saint Anne’s Day, Baynards Castle, London
 
Morning, just before prime. Up and dressed ahead of the dawn, I hear cock crows from the city. Way too nervous to sleep. Tournament today in the Smithfield mud, the Middle Ages at its messiest. Collin will ride, maybe Edward. Scary when you think about, so I try not to. I must be the only woman in medieval England who craves a mocha in the morning. Happily, I still have some instant…
 
Robyn stopped typing into her journal, tearing open a foil packet lifted

Praise for Lady Robyn

"Garcia y Robertson turns to time-travel romance in the style of Diana Gabaldon in this tale of a contemporary American woman who goes hiking on the Welsh border and encounters a knight in armor."--Locus on Knight Errant

"Twenty-first century got you down? Treat yourself, and be swept away to fifteenth-century England instead. . . . It becomes the stuff of dreams, fairy tales, and high epic romance in the grandest of traditions, all told with the detailed and loving eye of the true historian."--Terence M. Green, author of Shadow of Ashland on Knight Errant
