Waiting on Wednesday (45)

Scarlet by A.C. Gaughen

Many readers know the tale of Robin Hood, but they will be swept away by this new version full of action, secrets, and romance. Posing as one of Robin Hood’s thieves to avoid the wrath of the evil Thief Taker Lord Gisbourne, Scarlet has kept her identity secret from all of Nottinghamshire. Only the Hood and his band know the truth: the agile thief posing as a whip of a boy is actually a fearless young woman with a secret past. Helping the people of Nottingham outwit the corrupt Sheriff of Nottingham could cost Scarlet her life as Gisbourne closes in. It’s only her fierce loyalty to Robin—whose quick smiles and sharp temper have the rare power to unsettle her—that keeps Scarlet going and makes this fight worth dying for.

Release date: February 14, 2012 (Walker BFYR)

I love the story of Robin Hood and all of his adventures, so this sounds amazing! Plus, there's always something about books with a heroine who disguises herself as a boy that I enjoy! Bloody Jack, The Education of Bet... these are just a couple of my favorite examples! This sounds like a simply fantastic debut.

What are you waiting on?
