Apologies beforehand: I can't cite the title or author but maybe someone else has heard of it? Also, not fantasy as such but an alternate-history America with feudalism and nobility.

"Somewhere" I read an alternate-history story where Europeans first started settling North America during the middle ages. Because firearms hadn't been invented yet, the Europeans were under much greater threat from native counterattack, and so maintained a feudal society with castles and fortified settlements.
