About this title

Synopsis:

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.

Lady Robyn

"Medieval England is depicted with unflinching realism and sweeping panorama. The thoroughly modern heroine imprints her own personality quirks into the narrative. "-Romantic Times, 4.5 stars, a "Top Pick"

"Chick Lit meets the 15th century. A wonderful book for readers who like history with a twist. I enjoyed it."-Jo Beverley

But now Robyn's fantasy of courtly romance butts up against the brute reality of medieval politics: murder, warfare, and betrayal. The War of the Roses is messing up her life. If Robyn marries Edward, she will someday be queen, and her children heirs to the throne. In the 1460s, that means living under the constant threat of assassination. The survival rate for heirs is not high. Will Robyn reject her passionate love or risk the lives of her children to be?

"Garcia y Robertson turns to time-travel romance in the style of Diana Gabaldon." - Locus
