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.

"I have written about the joys of love. I have, in my secret heart, long dreamt of an intimate connection with a man; every Jane, I believe, deserves her Rochester."

Though poor, plain, and unconnected, Charlotte Bronte possesses a deeply passionate side which she reveals only in her writings—creating Jane Eyre and other novels that stand among literature's most beloved works. Living a secluded life in the wilds of Yorkshire with her sisters Emily and Anne, their drug-addicted brother, and an eccentric father who is going blind, Charlotte Bronte dreams of a real love story as fiery as the ones she creates.

But it is in the pages of her diary where Charlotte exposes her deepest feelings and desires—and the truth about her life, its triumphs and shattering disappointments, her family, the inspiration behind her work, her scandalous secret passion for the man she can never have . . . and her intense, dramatic relationship with the man she comes to love, the enigmatic Arthur Bell Nicholls.

"Who is this man who has dared to ask for my hand? Why is my father so dead set against him? Why are half the residents of Haworth determined to lynch him—or shoot him?"

From Syrie James, the acclaimed, bestselling author of The Lost Memoirs of Jane Austen, comes a powerfully compelling, intensely researched literary feat that blends historical fact and fiction to explore the passionate heart and unquiet soul of Charlotte Bronte. It is Charlotte's story, just as she might have written it herself.
