Scarlet by A.C Gaughen
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine to spotlight any upcoming releases you are eagerly anticipating!
You guys!!! I just hope this turns out to be as amazing as it sounds! Confession – I love all things Robin Hood and this one has a fearless heroine (Marian was always useless imo) who, I’m guessing, is Will Scarlet! A female Will Scarlet!!! Cannot wait!
Although – her falling for Robin Hood is a bit cliche, personally, I think Allan A Dale needs some romance (or possibly I’m just thinking of Joe Armstrong…). Mind you, if the Gisbourne looked like Richard Armitage, I wouldn’t care how evil he was…
Scarlet is out in February next year.
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.
What are you waiting on this week?
