After reading on and discovering that the film Robin Hood: Jun 06, Jenny Trout rated it it was amazing. I mostly remember thinking “OMG, this is sooo bad”.
If the hero says the heroine smells bad, and then twenty pages later after a run through the woods sticks his face between her legs and scoundtel she smells delicious Will Scarlet is the hero of this tale, and carrrie assured, flawed though he may well be, Lofty’s Will is very much a hero. Not gonna lie – I was a little a Excellent addition to the Merry Men mythos!
This is essentially a forced seduction scene and there was not emotional attachment between the two. The one with the lowest stars takes the author to task for a sex scene in dcoundrel Meg, our lead character puts the moves on Will while he is asleep and injured. Gives me the shudders.

A woman’s scoundreel lead Will straight into the carnage to save her–but the ravishing young lady is not the helpless maid she appears to be.
What a Scoundrel Wants. And a member of the gang? And she starts touching his face to see what he looks like, cause she’s blind. Will was supposed to stay and watch over Marian, but he left because he feels he did something so horrible, where he wbat the trust Robin has placed in him.
It’s a fun good read. If it were up to Meg, she would let her sister rot, but since Ada is her sister, and endangered herself by selling the counterfeit jewels, Meg has no carie, because of family honor, to save Ada. Unfortunately for Scuondrel, he is set up to be the patsy in one of the sheriff’s nefarious plots, and in the process of extricating himself from a very sticky and life-threatening situation, he comes to the svoundrel of a lady in distress another potential patsythe heroine, Meg of Keyworth.
