In the Shadow of Midnight is another great book by Marsha Canham. Book 2 in the Robin Hood series takes place about 14 years after the first one left off. It follows the story of Eduard, who has become a fearsome knight in his own right. King John has kidnapped Princess Eleanor of Brittany, who is the rightful ruler of England. Eduard, along with other knights sneak into England under the disguise of a wedding party. They are supposed to be delivering Ariel, the niece of one of the Black Wolf's allies, to her betrothed. The only problem is that King John arranged the marriage and no one is happy with it. Especially Ariel, the stubborn, smart-mouthed beauty who is more interested in the rescue mission than meeting her future husband. Eduard has vowed that during this rescue mission he will deliver Ariel to her intended with unharmed, and untouched. The problem is that Eduard doesn't know if he can keep his oath to keep his hands off her...

Marsha Canham has quickly become one of my favorite authors. Her historical fictions books are extremely entertaining and true to the time that that she is depicting. There are so many historical facts weaved into her stories that make her books hard to put down. Plus, her characters are great! Each character is fully developed. It's hard to not be completely emotionally tied to them. I look forward to continuing this series!!
