Meg persuades Hugo – who she has a “history” with – to release Will and the nobleman, and they set out once again to rescue Ada.

Will works for a new evil Sheriff of Nottingham. He feels the sting of her tongue and she never really does thank him for coming to her rescue.

This was a fun romance with an interesting topic and perspective. And she starts touching his face to see what he looks like, cause she’s blind. I love historical novels. Will feels he finally has a purpose when it comes to Meg, and as he learns who this particular woman is, he begins to fall in love with her.
I’m always a bit afraid they’re going to become avatars for the author’s Mary Sue fantasies. I like that sort of blurb for each chapter and these give a bit of hint as to what will happen in the chapter.

The characters were very likable and they were well developed throughout th I’m giving this scoundeel 3. His willingness to sacrifice his body was well done This was a really great medieval historical romance.
