Release Date: February 14, 2012Summary: Many readers know the tale of Robin Hood, but they will be swept away by this new version full of action, secrets, and romance.
Posing as one of Robin Hood’s thieves to avoid the wrath of the evil Thief Taker Lord Gisbourne, Scarlet has kept her identity secret from all of Nottinghamshire. Only the Hood and his band know the truth: the agile thief posing as a whip of a boy is actually a fearless young woman with a secret past. Helping the people of Nottingham outwit the corrupt Sheriff of Nottingham could cost Scarlet her life as Gisbourne closes in. It’s only her fierce loyalty to Robin—whose quick smiles and sharp temper have the rare power to unsettle her—that keeps Scarlet going and makes this fight worth dying for.
Ahhhhhhhh this book sounds so good!! I love Robin Hood, especially the BBC tv show adaptation, so when I figure out this book was about a girl posing as one of his bandits (and falling in love with him...) I couldn't wait to get it! The cove is super pretty and the summary of "action, secrets, and romance" sounds exactly like the book I want to read! Early reviews for this book have been awesome (it has an average of 4.11 stars on goodreads), so I know it's going to be a good read! Can't wait for this one to come out and read a new take on my beloved Robin Hood :)
