Scarlet's true identity has been revealed, but her future is uncertain. Her forced marriage to Lord Gisbourne threatens Robin and Scarlet's love, and as the royal court descends upon Nottingham for the appointment of a new Sheriff, the people of Nottingham hope that Prince John will appoint their beloved Robin Hood. But Prince John has different plans for Nottingham that revolve around a fateful secret from Scarlet's past even she isn't yet aware of. Forced to participate at court alongside her ruthless husband, Scarlet must bide her time and act the part of a noblewoman-a worthy sacrifice if it means helping Robin's cause and a chance at a future with the man she loves. With a fresh line of intrigue and as much passion as ever, the next chapter in Scarlet's tale will have readers talking once again.

Review quote

"The second volume of the Scarlet series plunges readers happily into the world of Sherwood Forest and does not end with any resolution, but its spirited action and rich voices hold." --"Kirkus Reviews""" "A must for secondary and public libraries that purchased the first book, this sequel will capture teen interest, and could also serve as a high-energy read-aloud . . . A welcome addition for libraries wishing to promote strong female protagonists." --"School Library Journal" "Gaughen prepares her readers well for volume two by filling in the backstory from the first entry and entices them to read the next entry with a cliff-hanging ending." --"VOYA" "There's plenty of action here, as well as romance, and it appears that there's even more to come." --"Booklist" "Debut novelist Gaughen does more than offer a rip-roaring tale, though it is that. The story, told in Scar's distinctive first-person voice, captivates and gets readers as deeply into the heart of a troubled girl . . . has plenty for both the romantic and the adventure lover." --"Booklist," starred review, on "Scarlet"
