Posing as one of Robin Hood's thieves to avoid the wrath of the evil Thief Taker Lord Gisbourne, Scarlet has kept her female identity secret from all of Nottinghamshire. Only Robin and his band know the truth. As Gisbourne closes in, helping the people of Nottingham could cost Scarlet her life, but her fierce loyalty to Robin-whose quick smiles have the rare power to unsettle her-keeps Scarlet going and makes this fight worth dying for.

Praise For Scarlet

"'Not your English teacher's version of Robin Hood,' Gaughen's novel 'reimagines' the classic tale, filling it with adventure, adrenaline-charged fight scenes, danger, and chivalry." - VOYA

"The fast-paced plot is easy to follow and filled with interesting details about the difficulties of medieval peasant life...Scarlet is an appealing, fiercely independent young woman." - School Library Journal
