Would you like to read a retelling of Robin Hood with a loyal, daring, and amazing, female heroine? Then, you need to read Scarlet by A.C. Gaughen.
I'm a huge fan of female heroines who are strong, brave, and help people at all costs. This is what a strong female lead should be, not a whimpering girl who is flakey.
I saw Scarlet during the "Debut Author Challenge" I participated in last year and decided to read it. I'm really glad I did. I love Will Scarlet's character and her "Band of Merry Men." Each of them had traits I simply adored.
The plot is well thought out and executed. I loved the tie in of Gisbourne and Lady Marian, who you’ll recognize from the original Robin Hood.
