The only thing harder than fighting for what’s right…is fighting their feelings for each other.
For three years, the Cloaked Bandit has terrorized Wessex, robbing the nobility by knifepoint and a well-placed arrow. But little dos anyone know, this bandit is in fact Juliana Wessex, the rightful ruler of the land and a girl her tyrannical uncle—the current Lord Wessex—believes was killed along with her father.
Juliana has become skilled at hiding from Lord Wessex in the forest, using her stolen goods to provide food and shelter to the peasants her uncle has taxed into poverty. But when she robs Collin Goodrich, her red hair betrays her true identity. Lord Collin remembers Juliana from their childhood—and challenges her to stay on his estate for a week in hopes she will leave her thieving ways and become a proper lady once more. Juliana is intrigued by Collin and his charms, but only time will tell if he can overcome her distaste of the nobility—as well as win her heart.
A dashing Robin Hood-esque tale full of action, romance and faith. While aimed for the YA market, I still really enjoyed this novel. The opening scene got my heart racing and plenty of action quickly follows. Juliana has grown tough and competent during her exile. But she`s a little too sure of herself which leads to trouble with a capital C as in Collin. Sparks fly and wills clash as the knightly hero strives to make things right. Stubborn Juliana is just as determined to cope on her own. Add in a dastardly villain or two, a band of loyal peasants and enough conflict to keep your blood pressure up and the result is sweet perfection.
