A Good Knight’s Kiss is the story of John, the Baron’s bastard son, as he strives to become a knight and heed his father’s decree to not be ruled by his passions, no small feat for a passionate, capable and astute ginger youth. only his strife to gain success as knight, and his love of his lord’s daughter, lead him onwards to greatness More
John is a Baron's bastard. His father, while intending to wed his nobly born mistress, John's mother, was trapped into marrying the daughter of his kinsman, the Earl, Lady Jane. A seemingly maidenly, bashful lady,who in truth is cold and manipulative.
John's uncannily clever insights, his precocious, sensitive manner, and his red hair, cause speculations to circle about him, for being devilish and witch like. Therefore, his adoptive mother, Lady Jane, forced to raise him as her own, as punishment for her part in his mother's demise, mistrusts John greatly. She fears for herself, her son, and for her fragile, contrived and dishonest relationship with her husband. She persuades John's father to send him away.
While the Baron intends the boy to be his heir, John himself, for love of his brother Henry, denounces his right to the title. He does so, as he trusts his career as knight will suffice to further advance himself, while his sickly brother needs protection and care. He embarks, therefore, on his career to train as knight at the hall of his uncle by marriage,Lady Jane's brother.
But political strife, petty rivalry, and his ever growing love for his lord's daughter Catherine, force him to once more seek his legitimacy, and his patrimony. A Good Knight's Kiss is a story of love, chivalry and coming of age.
