It was Elizabeth Chadwick's  'The Greatest Knight'. Also read the second in that series, 'The Scarlet Lion', which portraits his life after quitting the playboy life style of the tourney circuit. There are two more in the series, one about his daughter, who married into the famous Bigod family and one about his father, who was  infamous for side switching during the conflict between Matilda and Stephen. Haven't read those yet but I do find her novels very entertaining and believe she tries to be some what “historical”. Of course, all historical fiction has to make the characters accessible to the modern reader. If we were to really meet most of these people, I think our modern sensibilities would be wounded (that's if they just didn't kill us for being such marshmallows.)
