I bought this at CVS one day thinking, "Hmm... I like the Robin Hood genre." Yeah. This book did not live up to the standard. I disliked it from the first few pages. Sadly, unlike other books, it did not get better as I read. The characters were flat and there was absolutely no chemistry. The plot had potential, but the author did not build on it.
From back of book:
Unwilling to relinquish her prosperous estate and marry a man she despised, Lady Maryana was dispatched to the now-occupied land of her kingdom's ancient enemies. The recent war had left the land and its inhabitants bereft of food and hope. One man held the lifeblood of the country in his grasp: a man who, despite his ragged attire, intrigued Maryana like no other.
Lord Roderic Hode, the former Earl of Varley, was her king's sworn enemy and now led a rogue band of thieves who stole from the rich and gave to the poor. But when Maryana looked into Roderic's blazing eyes, she saw his passion for life, for his people, for her. Deep in the forest, he took her to the peak of ecstacy and joined their souls with a desire sanctioned only by love. Torn between her heritage and a love that knew no bounds, Maryana would gladly renounce her people if only she could remain forever in the strong arms of her...Prince of Thieves.
I really enjoyed the adventure & romance in this book.
