Spellcaster - George Bachman

Part regency romance with an occult streak, though partly set near the turn of the century, part de-romanticized medieval quest fantasy, this book tells two stories in parallel: a debutante searches the occult underground for a cure to visions which seem to be destroying her body, while the objects of some of the visions, a medieval knight, fights his away across a 14th century France that has already mostly succumbed to Reimar Hane, master of the Livonian Order, who holds the duchess Marie of Hainaut, and with her the fate of all France, captive. Uses alternate history in an interesting way with two protagonists faced with making evil choices for the greater good.
