The Earl of Essex offers Sir Stephen Fitzhugh a deal that even the cautious knight could not refuse. Stephen gains lands and the keep Dinmow in exchange for bringing to the Earl the Holy Grail. Stephen refuses to go on a wild goose chase after the legendary chalice, but finally accepts because he knows the Earl is not one to send anyone in a futile quest. He agrees to go and the Earl says evidence points towards the Last Supper¿s wine cup to be at Glastonbury Abbey.

Stephen arrives at the abbey only to find the abbot dead and his papers given to his niece Aislinn. Stephen tries to get her to give him the journal, but she forces his hand and instead they become partners in seeking the Holy Grail together. While neither one plans to share the chalice with the other if found, love enters the picture changing the dynamics. However, several other people want to either end their quest or steal the chalice if they succeed, leaving Stephen and Aislinn in danger.

THE KNIGHT is an exciting medieval romance that provides the audience a deep look at the times through the eyes of the characters. The lead protagonists are a charming pair struggling with love and diametrically opposed positions on the Holy Grail. Known for her fast-paced delightful historical romances, Juliana Garnett comes up with a diamond with her latest novel.
