By the end of that chapter, Meg could have died and I wouldn’t have cared.

What a Scoundrel Wants

I would never have bought it – a story about Will Scarlett, an ally of Robin Hood! This was a fun romance with an interesting topic and perspective.

After reading on and discovering that the film Robin Hood: I know women like Meg and it was gratifying to read a character who was so well developed. Her alchemical talents were the most interesting part about her and I was a little disappointed the intricacies didn’t get more attention.

I warmed up to Will sooner, as he found himself falling for the strange and difficult Meg. Feb 23, Lindsay rated it really liked it.

The cryptic way Lofty shared these details seemed like she was writing about characters and their backstories which she knew quite well in her mind, but didn’t bother to fill in the reader. She has also discovered how to create counterfeit emeralds, which her sister was arrested attempting to sell.


Coincidentally, Marsha Canham released the first book in her Robin Hood trilogy: Right turn here, wait backwards we go, double cross! I love robin hood. Sure, movies start out with a bang sometimes with great success like Gladiatorbut there was simply no groundwork at ALL in the first chapter here to give me any connection whatsoever to the people who were scrambling around with swords in the woods.

It was ALL over the place. Neither Will nor Meg are sure who to trust, or if they can even trust each other, and even the reader is challenged to figure out the potential motivations and machinations of every character – including the protagonists – as Meg and Will puzzle through their quest.

I did love the story, however, there were parts in between that I had a hard time getting through. Ones that don’t include jerks like meg. She was placed in the dungeon where Peter Finch, the Sheriff, wants Ada to make him more. I did have a tough time getting into this book in the beginning. Jul 10, Kathryn rated it really liked it.

She didn’t try to make that romantic. This book is based on the character of Will Scarlet from Robin Hood’s band. I had to keep going back to reread things. Read, highlight, and take notes, across web, carri, and phone. But they are drawn together by their troubles and their heated desires.


REVIEW: What a Scoundrel Wants by Carrie Lofty

In this dazzling, original tale, Carrie Lofty imagines a new chapter in the well-loved Robin Hood fable. This was a really great medieval historical romance. Wow, was this bad. Will Wnat is the hero of this tale, and rest assured, flawed though he may well be, Lofty’s Will is very much a hero.

Account Options Sign in. Once he realizes she’s blind, and then discovers her identity, he offers to lead her to Nottingham himself, thinking he can somehow barter her to clear himself. I have loved Robin Hood books from a variety of authors ranging from Parke Godwin to Marsha Canham, and I am so happy to see a book that sits well alongside them.

So, I was really excited to see him in a starring role. There is a lot of action, violence, blood and dirt.

The only problem was that I got lost a lot. It takes awhile to get used to the rhythm of the speech, as well as the harsh setting and characters. I couldn’t like either of the characters — almost hated them, really — until about two chapters to the end if thatwhich of course makes it nigh impossible to get whhat in the book.
