About the Book

Scarlet’s true identity has been revealed, but her future is uncertain. Her forced marriage to Lord Gisbourne threatens Robin and Scarlet’s love, and as the royal court descends upon Nottingham for the appointment of a new Sheriff, the people of Nottingham hope that Prince John will appoint their beloved Robin Hood. But Prince John has different plans for Nottingham that revolve around a fateful secret from Scarlet’s past even she isn’t yet aware of. Forced to participate at court alongside her ruthless husband, Scarlet must bide her time and act the part of a noblewoman—a worthy sacrifice if it means helping Robin’s cause and a chance at a future with the man she loves. With a fresh line of intrigue and as much passion as ever, the next chapter in Scarlet’s tale will have readers talking once again.
Purchase Lady Thief
Well, if you saw the link for my review of Scarlet up above (or here!), you know how much I loved the first book. I thought the characters and story were just so well thought-out and developed.

When I found out there was going to be a book #2, I was thrilled! After reading book #2, Lady Thief, I am amazed! A.C. Gaughen did not disappoint. 

In case you haven't read Scarlet yet, I will try to keep any type of spoilers at bay. However, what are you waiting for?!? Did you see that it received 5 stars (Mickeys) from me? You need to read it. Now! While you're picking it up, go ahead and make sure to have a copy of Lady Thief to read right after. You will NEED to do that. This wait in between the 2 books for me has been painful. The book was worth the wait, but it felt like centuries!

You will continue to love Scarlet, Rob, John, and Much. I have so much love for these four! Scarlet is an amazing heroine. You will still loooooathe Lord Gisbourne...and company. Prince John... UGH!

Gaughen's character development and story is just as strong, if not more so, in Lady Thief.

The ending. THE ENDING! Oh, book 3, I need you. A story about a strong woman who has vowed vengeance is going to be such a kick-ass read. Gaughen, you are a torture master. 

A review copy was provided. All thoughts are my own and I have not been persuaded in any way.

I'm glad to get to continue with a 5-star (Mickey) rating for Scarlet and the gang!

About the Author
I am shamelessly addicted to staying up far too late (it feels like stealing time), diet coke (it burns so good), Scotland (stupid country stole my heart and won't give it back. Interpol has been ineffective for prosecution) and thieves (so I guess I'm not that mad at Scotland). 

One winner will receive a prize pack including:

  1. I love this series and these characters so much! The end of this book is killer! Actually, reading this book felt like being repeatedly punched in the gut. Waiting for book three is going to be tough!

    1. "Actually, reading this book felt like being repeatedly punched in the gut."

      YES! The tears that came. Oh, my gosh. I'm pretty sure my heart broke a little. It has cracks, or something.

      The 3rd book is going to be epic. I can just feel it! Such strong and amazing characters are set.

      The evil people....I can't wait to see what happens to them. *cue evil music* Muhahaha!
