Beguiled By The Forbidden Knight is an historical romance set in Yorkshire, a few years after the Norman Conquest. King William has decreed that England shall be held and secured through marriages to create alliances. To this effect, Gilbert du Rospez has been sent to Haxby to meet his betrothed, Sigrun. Alas, she is not there, because she was sent to a priory for safety while Yorkist rebels tried to hold out against William’s armies.
In truth Gilbert would prefer to be off hunting and admiring horses than chasing after a bride he doesn’t want. So he asks his friend, Gui, to take his place. Shrewdly, he promises Gui a place of his own, once he returns with his bride-to-be.
