I am not sure if Carrie meant to keep this a mystery, or if something was left out because I feel that a few interactions were missing wannts these two. As sheriffs go, the new guy is actually quite a bit nastier than Alan Rickman was in Prince of Thieves, and not lotfy as entertaining.
As he is trying to escape and keep the beautiful young lady safe he discovers that she is blind and cannot testify that she visually knows that he was not part of the murdering swordsmen.
She hates everything about her life, from her lack of sight, to the death of her father, and even that of her Ada, who she felt betrayed her by lusting after her lover. Jun 06, Jenny Trout rated it it was amazing. It was fucking refreshing to read about a female character like this.
If you’re not a fan, the myriad threads and required foreknowledge will likely leave you hanging. The tale focuses on the much-maligned Will Scarlet rather than Robin himself, and the author gives readers a good, meaty story as well as a passionate romance. Published December 2nd by Zebra first published January 1st Her love scenes are at once steamy and so tender they’ll curl your toes, her characters multi-faceted and interesting – even when they are less than perfect, sometimes downright despicable.
I like that Lofty didn’t gloss over the dirtiness of living in the woods and fighting.
What a Scoundrel Wants takes place a few years later, after Robin became an outlaw. In this dazzling, original tale, Carrie Lofty imagines a new chapter in the well-loved Robin Hood fable. What A Scoundrel Wants could very nearly pick right up where the film leaves off.
And the setting, the forests, are very vivid.
He was hurt and had a fever and was all hoped up on her weird alchemy shit. For the second very memorable time, Smart Bitches Trashy Books has failed me.
What A Scoundrel Wants
Refresh and try again. It should have been fun. View all 15 comments. That aside, the romance is nonexistent until the end.
I really dug this book. Meg persuades Hugo – who she has a “history” with – to release Will and the nobleman, and they set out once again to rescue Ada. I love robin hood. 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.
My main peeve with What a Scoundrel Wants was the character of Meg. Will wants to lose Meg, but because he has a sense of chivalry, he will help her return home.

A character is shoved, face down into the mud. It’s not quite the complete journey to accepting himself as a noble and self-sacrificing hero; his illustrious uncle’s equal in any way.
He feels the sting of her tongue and she never really does thank him for coming to her rescue. Will is responsible for arresting a young woman buy the name of Ada, who was trying lofyy use some counterfeit emeralds while she was in Nottingham.
The other fun part of this novel is the adventure that makes the plot look like the end result of a game of dominos. I didn’t bother to go more than a few chapters cxrrie, so I don’t know if there were redeeming virtues. Thanks for telling us about the problem.
But he then realizes by saving Meg, he may have made himself an outlaw once again. Wanting to finish this book was an arduous undertaking.
