R. Garcia y Robertson is the author of a numerous of books and stories, many of them published in the SF genre. In addition, he has written two highly praised novels outside that genre, American Woman, and The Spiral Dance ("A remarkably realistic historical fantasy."--Ellen Kushner, host of Song and Spirit, NPR). Now Garcia y Robertson returns with a powerful time-travel romance that reaches new imaginative heights.

Robyn Stafford, a young American woman executive, has flown from Hollywood to England to surprise her lover on his birthday, only to find that he's married and his wife's giving the party. So she takes a few days off to recover from her outrage and dismay, traveling and hiking in England near the Welsh border. There she encounters a young man on horseback, wearing a sword, chain mail, and a surcoat, who identifies himself as Edward Plantagenet, Earl of March, and asks directions to a nearby abbey. He thinks it is the year 1459, is amazed by her working cell phone, and invites her to ride along, although at first he thought her a young boy wearing pants! Then his pursuers show up, and Edward and Robyn ride madly across the hills until he drops her off and gallops back to face his enemies. After he fights them off, he returns and invites her to come with him and be his lady. Then he rides away, into the distant past, to the age of the War of the Roses.

And so Robyn Stafford must find a way to leave the world of today for the fifteenth century, where she will fall in love with a young knight, a prince who will be king. This is the first of three books in a sweeping historical romance.

Robyn
 
 
She saw the knight come riding up as she stopped to rest. Setting down her Nike squirt bottle, Robyn retied her hiking boots and then stood up to stare. She had not seen a soul since crossing the BritRail tracks near Pandy. By now A465 out of Abergavenny was far behind her. She had been hiking alone along the Welsh border, a rolling green-gold landscape of heather-covered tops furrowed by ancient earthworks—a place impossibly old and unrelentingly pretty—dotted with standing stones, burial tumps, wildflowers and faerie rings, which made this knight on horseback’s sudden

Praise for Knight Errant

"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

"Knight Errant beautifully combines the best of time-travel romance with top-notch historical fiction. This is a delightful book. The superb cast of characters, the grand sweep of events, and the richly detailed setting in medieval England all come together in a story that works like a dream. I cared about these people, especially the appealing but beleaguered heroine from modern-day Hollywood who finds herself thrown back on her wits in an all-too-authentic England of the fifteenth century."--Catherine Asaro

"A fast-moving and highly enjoyable historical fantasy."-L. E. Modesitt, Jr., author of The Spellsong Cycle
