A.C. Gaughen

Gaughen continues her fresh twist on the tale of Robin Hood in the second volume of the Scarlet series (Scarlet, 2013). Scarlet's true identity has been revealed and she has been forced to marry Lord Gisbourne. Although he has injured her and tortured Robin, Gisbourne promises Scarlet an annulment if she will just pretend to be his wife while he fawns upon Prince John. Scarlet hopes that she may one day have a future with Robin, but for now, she must bide her time at court in order to protect the people of Nottingham and help the cause of her beloved Robin Hood.
