A Victorian twist on Robin Hood.

The Earl of Rochelle, Nikolas Whitworth, is handsome, charming. And a traitor.

He can outwit and outcon any Englishman—and any Englishwoman. When his debts are called in a savior appears, the criminal mastermind known only as the Tailor.

Nikolas is bought and sold, his future no longer his. But when a beguiling thief picks his pocket, Rosalyn Devereaux steals more than his coin. Orphaned as a child, Rosalyn trusts no one. She picks the pockets of lords and ladies alike, donating her spoils to the poor. The Tailor notices her skills and demands Rosalyn enlist in his cause.

With every moment beside Rosalyn, Nikolas changes from a life of lies to a man with a conviction. She occupies his every thought but can Nikolas outcon the Tailor and secure Rosalyn’s heart before the Tailor steals his love?

My thoughts: I love the story of Robin Hood.  This is a re-telling with a twist.  The archer is a woman!  Rosalyn is a lady on a noble mission.  She steals from the rich to help suffering orphans.  

Her love interest, Nikolas Whitworth wants to help and ease her burdens.  He broke her heart in the past and she doesn't know if she can let him back into her life and heart.

The villain is a person with a hidden identity known as the Tailor.  He is causing havoc on the nobles of Sherwood, I mean London.  Nikolaus (under duress) and his soon-to-be brother-in-law team up to stop the Tailor.

This re-telling has a story and voice of its own.  I really enjoyed it and finished it in one day.  I wanted to see who was behind the name of the Tailor.  I wanted to know if Roselyn and Nikolas could overcome the hurt from the past and finally come together.  I wanted to see Roselyn use her mad archery skills.  

This book is part of a series.  I knew there was a backstory that I was missing, but I kept up with this story just fine.  This means I have a few more stories to read.
