Book Description: Who says Chivalry is dead?
Robin King lives up to the legendary name of Robin Hood more than he should—a bigshot billionaire and successor of King enterprises, a Prince of Mischief and a rogue who steals hearts ... and maybe even a few kisses. He never thought he’d follow the storyline so closely, until the day he gets in trouble with the law and pays the price—all for protecting his younger sister Scarlett.
Taken in by an Outlaw
Marian is a hard-hitting reporter … or would be if the New England Chronicle would stop assigning her puff pieces. Now she has the chance to prove herself, but it could prove her undoing—since the story of a lifetime might just be Robin King, a ruthless scoundrel, who she swore would never break her heart again.
Making New England Olde again
Together, they must overcome their differences to save their hometown from thieves and corruption. And they’d better do it before someone gets killed. As danger lurks closer, legend becomes life, and Robin’s feelings for Marian deepen as he struggles with sharing the secrets that could clear his name and ruin his sister.
My thoughts: All is not well in Merry New England. Robin has taken the fall for embezzlement to protect someone he loves. He does his time for four years in prison until his Grandfather's retirement celebration gives him an early release.
He comes home to try to figure out how to win back the trust of his home town and the regard of the fair Maid Marian. He has his work cut out for him. I enjoyed reading about him and his escapades. He has a few loyal friends and they work to uncover who the bad guy really is.
Stephanie Fowers did a great job at surprising me with some of the characters. They did things that I was not expecting. She had written an adventure with suspense and romance. I loved the parallels with this contemporary story to the original tales of Robin Hood.
This book is clean with non-graphic violence and kissing.
This book is available for Kindle Unlimited.
About the Author: (Taken from Goodreads) Stephanie Fowers loves bringing stories to life, and depending on her latest madcap ideas will do it through written word, song, and/ or film. She absolutely adores Bollywood and bonnet movies; i.e., BBC (which she supposes includes non-bonnet movies Sherlock and Dr. Who). Presently, she lives in Salt Lake where she's living the life of the starving artist. Stephanie plans to bring more of her novels out to greet the light of day. Be sure to watch for her upcoming books, including YA fantasy, science fiction, mysteries, steampunk, regency Greek fantasy, and more--many more--romantic comedies in her line of sweet romances called "Hopeless Romantics." May the adventures begin.
