Description

Locked away in prison, Scarlet finds herself a long way from Nottinghamshire. After a daring escape, she learns that King Richard's life is in jeopardy, and Eleanor of Aquitaine needs Scarlet's help to free him. But Scarlet knows that this will put her and those she loves back in evil Prince John's sights. Desperate not to risk anyone else's life, Scarlet plans to help save the king on her own. But fate--and her heart--won't allow her to stay away from Nottinghamshire for long. Even if Scarlet and Rob can finally stop Prince John from going through with his dark plans for England, will their love be enough to save them once and for all?
