(The Guardians of Sherwood Trilogy Book 3)
Curlew Champion, master archer, has always known his destiny. With his cousin, Heron Scarlet, he will become a guardian of Sherwood Forest and further his people’s fight against Norman tyranny. But the third member of the triad is still to be revealed, the woman who will complete the magical circle and, perhaps, answer the longing in Curlew’s heart.
Anwyn Montfort has fled disgrace in Shrewsbury and come to Nottingham at her father’s bidding. He wishes her to make a good marriage and settle down. But the wildness that possesses her refuses to quiet. She knows she’s been searching for something all her life, but not until she glimpses Curlew does her spirit begin to hope it has found its home.
Only the magic of Sherwood can bring them together, and only their union can complete the spell woven so long ago…
(review request submitted by the author for an honest critique)
This tale was worthy of being a story arc on the highly acclaimed hit show Once Upon A Time. It had twists and turns which kept the storyline flowing at a nice pace. It also had true love for the romantics in us all.
I must note though……
Even though Amazon has this book listed as a historical romance and not fantasy, there was magic involved which helped in the battle with the villain threatening their lives. Actually, magic was a focal point of this story.
And, of course, there was a HEA because (as we all know) LOVE CONQUERS ALL!!
Heart Rating System – 1 (lowest) and 5 (highest)
