Sir Stephen Fitzhugh has never really believed in legends. But like legions of men before him, he is desperate to find the ancient and elusive Holy Grail -- for a wealthy collector has promised him a considerable fortune if he succeeds. Following a trail of rumor and speculation, Stephen arrives at an abbey in Glastonbury -- only to find that it has burned to the ground. His last hope of completing his quest lies with the late abbot's niece, Aislinn. She is beautiful, beguiling, and altogether charming. But she has no intention of helping anyone -- even a knight as handsome as Stephen succeed where so many others have so miserably failed . . .
