King Tristan's plan was to unite the neighboring kingdoms and duchies—with himself as ruler. The local kings and rulers, however, proved unwilling to be deposed in favor of Tristan and the plan seemed likely to fail until John o' the Green, a noble and an outlaw, was captured by King Tristan's men. Not to save his own life but for the sake of his nine captured comrades John agreed to his captor's proposal. With chain mail under his innocent minstrel's costume he set out for a neighboring duchy in the hope of winning it by cunning or by courage. He did not suspect that within its high-walled, many-towered chief city he would find a girl as its ruler, who by her courage would command his respect and by her youth and loveliness would win his love. He could not foresee that her troubles would become more important to him than his own and that her happiness and safety would be his chief care.

Jeffery Farnol (10 February 1878 – 9 August 1952) was a British writer since 1907 until his death, known for writing more than 40 romance novels, some formulaic and set in the Georgian Era or English Regency period, and swashbucklers, he with Georgette Heyer founded the Regency romantic genre.

He published his first romance novel My Lady Caprice in 1907. The success of his early novels led Farnol to become a professional writer. He produced around 40 novels and volumes of stories, and some non-fiction and children's books. His last book was completed by his second wife Phyllis.

Two of his early books, The Amateur Gentleman and The Broad Highway, have been issued in a version edited by romance novelist Barbara Cartland. The Amateur Gentleman was adapted for British film in 1920 and 1936, American film in 1926.--Wikipedia.
