Posing as one of Robin Hood's thieves to avoid the wrath of evil Lord Gisbourne, Scarlet has kept her identity secret from all of Nottinghamshire. Only Robin and his band know the truth --- that the knife-wielding, trouble-seeking Scarlet is actually a girl --- and as Gisbourne closes in, helping the people of Nottingham could cost Scarlet her life. Only her fierce loyalty to Robin --- whose quick smiles have the rare power to win her heart --- make Scarlet feel brave enough to keep up the fight. But her love for Robin could also be her greatest weakness...
