Living their dream …

Chivalrous modern-day jouster Cal and his devoted friend Amber fall under the spell of erudite warrior-poet Tony, and the living history society who act out his romantic medieval vision at their Devonshire hilltop camp.

But with authenticity comes violence.

The path to achieving Tony’s vision demanded a brutal choice, and Cal must confront his own secrets as he uncovers the hidden truth.
