An “excellent adventure about Marian and Robin Hood that combines aspects of the romantic, fantasy and historical novel . . . Exciting and satisfying” (Publishers Weekly, starred review).
 
Robert of Locksley, the handsome son of a respected earl, has long battled the tyranny of Prince John—a man as weak as he is cruel. Now that power has shifted even more firmly into John’s hands, Robert has no choice but to fight as an outlaw . . . as Robin Hood.
 
Lady Marian of Ravenskeep has fled into the depths of Sherwood Forest. There, amid wild woods, she will be transformed from lady to warrior—as Robin Hood’s partner in stealing John’s gold. But all who breathe know the penalty for such theft is hanging. As the sheriff’s army pursues them, Robin Hood and Marian face danger at every turn, and discover a shared passion that will join their hearts forever.
 
“Fans of historical fiction and period fantasy should enjoy this rousing story.” —Library Journal

About the author

Since 1984, Jennifer Roberson has published twenty solo novels, among them thirteen bestselling fantasy novels: the eight-volume Chronicles of the Cheysuli, about a race of shapechangers and a divine prophecy; and the four-volume Sword-Dancer saga, which she describes as "Conan the Barbarian meets Gloria Steinem." Other novels include three mainstream historicals from Kensington: Lady of the Forest, an award-winning reinterpretation of the Robin Hood story emphasizing Marian's role in how the legend came to be; a sequel, Lady of Sherwood, continuing the adventures of Robin and Marian; and Lady of the Glen, the documented story of seventeenth-century Scotland's Massacre of Glencoe, similar in theme to the films Rob Roy and Braveheart. She has also written The Golden Key, a DAW Books fantasy collaboration with Melanie Rawn and Kate Elliott, which was nominated for the World Fantasy Award in 1997.

Jennifer has a bachelor of science in journalism from Northern Arizona University, with an extended major in British history. She spent her final semester in England at the University of London, which enabled her to do in-depth research at museums, great homes, and cathedrals of England, as well as in Scotland's Edinburgh, Loch Ness, and Glencoe. Prior to becoming a full-time writer in 1985, she was employed as an investigative reporter for a morning daily and as an advertising copywriter for a major marketing company.

Jennifer grew up in Arizona and used to compete in amateur rodeos. Her primary hobby now is the breeding, training, and exhibition of Cardigan Welsh corgis and Labrador retrievers in the conformation, obedience, and agility rings of AKC dog shows and trials. She was the Cardigan Welsh corgi breed columnist for the AKC Gazette for six years and is currently on the board of directors of the Cardigan Welsh Corgi Club of America. She lives near Phoenix with (currently) six dogs and two cats.

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • NOW A STARZ ORIGINAL SERIES 

Unrivaled storytelling. Unforgettable characters. Rich historical detail. These are the hallmarks of Diana Gabaldon’s work. Her New York Times bestselling Outlander novels have earned the praise of critics and captured the hearts of millions of fans. Here is the story that started it all, introducing two remarkable characters, Claire Beauchamp Randall and Jamie Fraser, in a spellbinding novel of passion and history that combines exhilarating adventure with a love story for the ages.

One of the top ten best-loved novels in America, as seen on PBS’s The Great American Read!

Scottish Highlands, 1945. Claire Randall, a former British combat nurse, is just back from the war and reunited with her husband on a second honeymoon when she walks through a standing stone in one of the ancient circles that dot the British Isles. Suddenly she is a Sassenach—an “outlander”—in a Scotland torn by war and raiding clans in the year of Our Lord . . . 1743.

Claire is catapulted into the intrigues of a world that threatens her life, and may shatter her heart. Marooned amid danger, passion, and violence, Claire learns her only chance of safety lies in Jamie Fraser, a gallant young Scots warrior. What begins in compulsion becomes urgent need, and Claire finds herself torn between two very different men, in two irreconcilable lives.

This eBook includes the full text of the novel plus the following additional content:
• An excerpt from Diana Gabaldon’s Dragonfly in Amber, the second novel in the Outlander series 
• An interview with Diana Gabaldon 
• An Outlander reader’s guide
