♥ Will she pick up or put down her sword for love? ♥
The Outlaw After being framed and stripped of his title, Sir Jacob Quincey is out for revenge on the High Sheriff of Durham who ruined his life and stole his lover. With no family, land, or title to his name, Jacob takes to the forest to live as an outcast. After a few years he manages to assemble an army, teaching commoners to fight to help his cause. Now is the time for justice to be served, but one lady stands in his way.
The Rebellious Bride Lady Maira Douglas, daughter of Rowen (Legendary Bastards of the Crown) resents that her father has betrothed her to the High Sheriff of Durham. The last thing she wants is to marry a man who will make her act like a lady and force her to put down her blade. She hopes her skill with weapons can bring about a change for good, since she is a member of the queen’s secret society of strong women. But now she’s being sent aways against her will. When she meets the High Sheriff, Maira despises the man, but her heart goes out to the man’s young son. She wants more than anything to protect the boy, and will do whatever she has to in order to keep him safe.
An outlaw she meets in the forest offers her everything she ever wanted, asking her to be a part of his army. However, he is out to kill her betrothed. Marrying the High Sheriff will keep the boy safe and also provide for Maira for a lifetime. But joining up with the outlaw will give her the freedom to be who she really wants to be. A struggle inside her between need and want makes her realize in order to gain one thing, she’ll have to lose another along the way.
Can one in peril look past sacrifice to find hope once again?
