Dark Heart of Sherwood


3.00 · 1 ratings · Published: Jan 9th, 2013 {{ book.ratingTitle }}
England. 1191. Early summer. In the forests of middle England, a guerrilla war is being waged between corrupt authority and a band of good-intentioned merry men operating outside the law. In the forests of Sherwood, no evil man is safe; in the corridors of Nottingham Castle, no good one is welcome.

You know the score; now enough of the clichés.

This novel is not about the heroics of Robin Hood. In fact, he barely even makes an appearance. This story is instead a light shone upon Locksley’s shadowy nemesis and the Sheriff of Nottingham’s right hand man, Sir Guy of Gisborne.

Repeatedly outwitted by the wily Robin, overlooked and under-appreciated by the treacherous Sheriff de Montfort, and set on a path of seemingly impossible pursuit of the haughty Lady Marian Fitzwalter, Sir Guy has every reason to be frustrated with his lot in life. When a beautiful servant girl crosses his path who clearly has eyes only for him, he cannot resist the diversion she offers. But who is Lucy Ratcliffe and what does she really want of him: a lover, a master or a slave?

As he embarks on a passionate affair with the voluptuous stranger, Sir Guy discovers that there are depths to his soul that he never imagined, and although reason and pride urge him to treat her as he has treated so many servant girls before, he soon realises that she has penetrated the one weak spot in his armour. She has shown him that he, the feared and fearsome warrior, has a heart…

This new romantic adventure tells a tale rarely spoken of in conventional stories of Robin Hood and his Merry Men. Prepare to wander into the dark side of Sherwood, to taste forbidden fruits of erotic pleasure and gaze into the eyes of a haunted man, whose heart, he is soon to discover, is as big as his soaring ambition…

“Even a man who is black in heart and rages through the night
May become a slave to his lover’s smiles at the dying of the light…”
