Books by Carrie Lofty. I don’t care that it’s a romance although I would say that it’s more of a cross-genre novel that utilizes some familiar romance tropes as opposed to a straight romance and I don’t care about the title. God it pissed me off. It was as if I knew what they looked like from the beginning.
What a Scoundrel Wants takes place wqnts few years later, after Robin became an outlaw.
What A Scoundrel Wants
What a Scoundrel Wants. I gave up after Chapter 5 for the following reasons: Also, she has her own reasons to not like him or want to help him. It’s sort of like a careless fanficcer in that way – writing within an established universe and leaving stuff out because knowledge is assumed.
More than I bargained for Although the title has absolutely nothing to do with the story, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The balancing of Will Scarlet as main hero under the shadow of Robin was well played. I can’t say that everyone is going to appreciate Meg as a heroine.

Some of my favourite written atrocities: I wonder if my latest book shipment has arrived as yet. Will Scarlet is the hero of this tale, and rest assured, flawed though he may well be, Lofty’s Will is very much a hero.
