Tre’ Devaux’s title and land have been stripped away by the greed of King John. Forced into the position, he is now the Sheriff of Nottingham. His task, set by this corrupt King, is to rid the land of the outlaws or lose everything the King has taken permanently.

Lady Jane Neville has been widowed but still the King has called upon her household to give up the men for his war with France. Unsettled by the tenuous position King John has created, Lady Jane has taken up in her uncle’s footsteps. Sh
