The Legend begins with an ancient Roman sword, an endearing poem, and a love that cannot be denied.
With dreams only of you…
Medieval England 1272 A.D.: Sir Eryx de Reyne has both Scots and English blood in him, and serves at Prudhoe Castle on the Scots border.
And that’s where his destiny lies.
Cleaning up after a border skirmish along the ancient Roman wall, he chases some Scots into the ruins of a Mile Castle, an old Roman fort. After a brief battle, he is about to leave the ruined castle when he notices loose stones and the reflection of something metal. Pulling away the stones, he discovers an ancient Roman gladius.
The legend begins.
Eryx is very fond of a local lady but she’s also being heavily courted by his nemesis. Both Eryx and his nemesis are in on the raid and the nemesis is with Eryx when he discovers the sword. When Eryx declares he is going to give the lady his newly-found sword, the competition heats up and what was once a semi-friend contest soon becomes a deadly happening.
Lady Frederica “Freddie” de Titouan is a lovely, gentle lady and she is quite thrilled when Eryx presents her the ancient sword. Freddie rather likes the big, dark knight but the budding romance is interrupted by Eryx’ nemesis. Two knights and one lady make recipe for disaster when the nemesis is able to blame Eryx for a terrible accident, attempting to sway Freddie against him.
With Dreams is the ultimate battle for the lady’s hand in this tale of love, vengeance, and ultimately redemption.
