Jackie is on her way to work one Saturday morning to fulfill yet another of her boss’s outrageous demands, but the love magic she doesn’t know is woven into the gloves made by her best friend sends her instead on an unexpected detour to true love.
Too bad there aren’t any knights-in-shining armor around when a girl needs one. But maybe one wearing chain mail will do just fine. Lance Masters, European Martial Arts Master extraordinaire, appears out of the misty Seattle rain when she runs out of gas. The zap of chemistry between them makes her wonder if she has met the man of her dreams, but her hopes are just as quickly dashed upon learning that her gallant knight is only in town to attend a huge local Live Action Role Play (LARP) event taking place that weekend.
Lance Masters has a chain of European Martial Arts studios back East and is thinking of expanding to the West Coast. When he meets Jackie, wet, bedraggled and pushing her dead-as-a-doornail car in the rain, he knows he must see her again. He invites her to cheer him on in tomorrow's multi-state European Martial Arts tournament. But he suspects that won’t be nearly enough.
