Is it The Eyes of God by John Marco?

There was a young character with a limp (who does travel around and have some adventures), there was a library, there were parts in a desert. There was a hero/knight type who was in love with the king's wife. I forget which of the three books some of these events occurred in.

Sequels were called The Devil's Armor and The Sword of Angels.

Though I would recommend staying away from the series. It's bloated with unnecessary content (both chapter-wise and on a sentence-to-sentence level) and seriously needed an editor to chop about 40% out. Which is too bad, because there were some good ideas in there.
