Not Long Ago - Susan A. Royal

Erin has met the man of her dreams, but as usual there are complications.  It’s one of those long distance relationships, and Griffin is a little behind the times-- somewhere around 600 years. 

In the middle of researching medieval British history for her employer’s next bestseller, Erin and March are transported to a time where chivalry and religion exist alongside brutality and superstition. Since women in the Middle Ages don’t wear trousers or have short hair, Erin is forced to pose as March’s nephew while they search for answers. 

When Erin finds employment as handsome Sir Griffin’s squire, she’s immediately attracted to him.  Something’s not quite right at the castle, and Erin and March feel sure mysterious Lady Isobeil is involved. But Erin must cope with crop circles, ghosts, a kidnapping and death before the truth of her journey is revealed.

While Erin struggles to survive in this harsh world, she grows to admire Sir Griffin’s courage, quiet nobility and devotion to duty, yet she must deny her feelings.  Her world is centuries away, and she wants to go home.  But, she can’t stop thinking about her knight in shining armor.
