A stunning tale of romance and magic set against the legendary backdrop of King Arthur's court.
At 19, the beautiful Lady Rhian is clearly of marriageable age - but her father seems reluctant to give his blessing to any of her suitors. When she discovers the true reason for this - that in return for her mother's life he promised her to a sorcerer - she runs away to join a convent.
The sorcerer, Euberacon, is determined to exact his payment and waylays Rhian on the road, but she is rescued by the valiant Sir Gawain, a knight of King Arthur's Round Table, who gallantly offers to escort Rhian to Camelot.
Gawain has grave tidings to bring to Arthur: the Saxons are growing restless, and the threat of war looms. He has taken a great risk in stopping to help Rhian. But when a band of Saxons attacks them, Rhian proves that her skills include more than tapestry and gossip - and Gawain will be captivated as much by her bravery as by her beauty.
