Received in exchange for a honest review.

You will feel for Mariel when you learn about her father and how horrible he is. She is a great character though. Strong, stubborn and independent. Not something that is common in her era. That is what makes her awesome. She is not the norm. She is capable and has her own mind. she can take care of herself. But she doesn’t trust easily and does jump to conclusions and acts before knowing everything. She does this especially with Robert.

Robert who is kind and caring. who treats those under him with respect and as equals. Robert who is fair and open. who is intrigued by Mariel and wants to help her. But he doesn’t just want to help Mariel. He wants to help those who need it. Like the church that takes care of those who don’t have enough to help themselves. Like those who lose everything to the horrible Sheriff of Nottingham. To me him and his friends are the merrymen and Robin Hood. what makes him even better than his kindness? He sees Mariel as an equal. He respects her skill and wants her by his side. He knows there is attraction but does try to deny his feelings at first.

He grows to love her though and wants to protect her from the evil that is her dad. their story is vivacious and full of stubbornness on both ends. But also trust and respect. She doesn’t always trust him but begins to as she sees he isn’t what she thought. she sees he isn’t her father. they build a relationship based on respect and Robert’s patience and kindness. The feelings slowly reveal themselves and has them wanting one another. I love how protective Robert is and yet he respects mariel and her ability to take care of herself. He trusts her but knows she is in trouble. Knows that she needs to accept help even if she doesn’t want to. Watching them fall in love while evading her father and helping those that need it is wonderfully written and addictive. The story is sassy and fun. Sweet and alluring. A story of finding love and trust where least likely to see it and taking a chance on trust and someone. A chance that can take everything away from both: freedom, land, titles -only to see them fight for one another and succeed in love, overcoming bad and creating a future for themselves and those around them.
