Desperate for coin, Lady Mariel Crawford enters an archery contest as a boy but despite her unmatched skill she loses in a tie to the intriguing, frustrating, and very handsome Earl of Huntington. Robert of Huntington seems like any other young philanderer and Mariel, fleeing a cruel father, trusts no man. Yet Robert proves to have a softer side that threatens her resolve to remain alone and unattached.

When Robert bests a young woman at a tourney, his curiosity deepens when he realizes she is the daughter of the ruthless Beast of Ayr. And when he learns that Mariel’s father conspires with the Sheriff of Nottingham Robert is compelled to protect her. Even if it means lying. Even if it means the only way he can save her is by marrying her. He’s willing to lose everything to guard the Scottish wildling who has pierced his heart.

Received in exchange for a honest review.

You will feel for Mariel when you learn about her father and how horrible he is. She is a great character though. Strong, stubborn and independent. Not something that is common in her era. That is what makes her awesome. She is not the norm. She is capable... ...more

I received a free book and voluntarily chose to review it. LOVED it! Mariel is my strong woman in this story and is probably the strongest since I started looking for them.
