Robin Hood is back
...and he's about to steal your heart.

A robber and a princess.

A girl disguised as a boy.

A medieval reimagining of the legend of Robin Hood packed with adventure, sacrifice and romance.

Robin Hood, hidden deep in the Sherwood Forest, is fighting to restore the crown to its rightful king, surrounded by faithful friends, green leaves and clear skies. Burdened with secrets, betrayal and an incredible responsibility, he struggles to stay alive and keep the starving people fed. One day, a boy saves him from the Sheriff’s poisoned arrows. Robin, impressed by the slender youth’s courage and skill, takes the boy with him to the forest.

Only, the boy is not a boy.

In the castle of Nottingham, a maiden who used to be a princess is forced to obey the wishes of a tyrannical Sheriff. She dons on male clothes and trains to become a fierce assassin, vowing to catch the greatest criminal in the kingdom. But when she saves Robin Hood’s life nearly losing her own, she is rescued by the outlaws.

When Robin and the “boy” meet, two worlds collide, resulting in unimaginable danger and intense romance. Who will survive when they learn each other’s secrets? What happens when the assassin falls in love with her victim?

Filled with danger, intrigue and slow-burn passion, this is a Robin Hood story unlike any you have ever read before!

The boy who wasn’t a boy woke up slowly, feeling disoriented.He was lying down on what appeared to be a torture device, made of needles and sharp knives, the sun was in his eyes, his whole body on fire.
“Oh, you’re awake, then!” a voice cried happily next to the boy’s-who wasn’t a boy-head.
“I’ll murder you,” the boy-not-boy tried to say, with a tongue thick as molasses.
“Easy now,” the happy voice chirped infuriatingly. A cool hand cupped the boy-not-boy’s neck, sending a hellish shower of pain. “You’ve been ill, boy."  
 Well, you don’t say, the boy-not-boy wanted to say, but couldn’t.
He felt his eyelids drooping, and sleep begin to pull him under. Maybe it would be better to sleep some more. Before his skin exploded into a million ashes from pain. Before he did something stupid, like murder the owner of the happy voice.
Or say something even more stupid.
Something like…
I’m not a boy. 
When next the boy who was a girl woke up, there were stars blinking above her head. Her body felt heavy, her mind lethargic, her limbs numb, but not painful.
There were more stars above her head than was possible. Maybe she’d finally died and gone to heaven. Maybe she’d suffered enough. They’d told her she’d be hit, probably by an arrow, but she not that she’d descend into hell.
But this wasn’t hell.
A soft breeze cooled her sweating brow, and her aching head was lying on the softest pillow of grass. That was much better than the needles she lay on before. Or had she? Maybe that had been a dream. Up above, a sliver of the moon was filtered through a cloud of leaves, framing the night sky. Such nights existed only in dreams, it was true, yet the smells of fresh grass, the mild dew on her skin, it all felt real.
Or maybe she was dead, for there was no rational explanation for this paradise she found herself in. One part of her screamed, no, this wasn’t supposed to end in death. At least not my death. But another part of her… Felt relieved. It was finally over. The pain, the dread, the injustice. Over.
At last, peace. She closed her eyes again.

Meet my Robin Hood! 

The amazingly talented @morgana0anagrom​ has created the most accurate, swoonworthy, amazing portrait of my tortured hero.
And it is a stunner.

Official portrait of Robin Hood from the novel Everything I Do by M.C. Frank
artist: @morgana0anagrom
author: @mcfrankauthor

Everything you needed and didn’t need to know about the real Robin Hood:

First Name: Robert 
Nickname: Robin Hood
Title: Earl of Loxley
Job: Thief
Financial Situation: He is one of the richest men in England (in lands, mostly). But there’s a teeny tiny little problem: he’s been declared an outlaw and everything he possessed has been claimed by the Sheriff. So, he’s kind of dirt poor and filthy rich at the same time. But mostly dirt poor.
Appearance: Tall, thin, but muscled. Robin eats every few days, so as to leave more food for his friends, but he has the endurance of an ox. He has grey eyes and black hair, an amazing smile which he rarely uses anymore, and… you can see the rest of his features in the portrait.
Part of: He is leader of Robin Hood’s band of Merrie Outlaws.
Skills: He is the best archer in England. Probably France, too.
Training: He spent two years in the training camps in the Holy Lands, and then a few months fighting in the battlegrounds there.
Seen: It all.
Hobbies: Hunting, doing archery contests with his friends, playing with his cat, listening to his friends sing out of tune around the campfire, giving his food away.
Mental Health: He is suffering from intense PTSD because of spending about 2 years in the Sheriff’s dungeon. He also suffers from survivor’s guilt and is plagued by intense episodes of “blackness” in which his guilt and bad memories of all the things that happened to him when he was a kid overwhelm him. He sometimes has panic attacks.
Friends: Less than 10 really, really close friends, and more than a thousand all over the land. He has dedicated his life to fighting for the rights of others and keeping them alive, forgetting all about his own needs, and there are so many people who love and appreciate him. However, they are so poor and powerless that they can’t do anything to help him. Three of his best friends are dead. All of his friends adore him and would give their life for him in a second. But that would literally kill him.
Enemies: The rest of the entire sodding world (in his words).
Love InterestDead Spoiler
Hopes and dreams: Only one: that the true King, his friend, would come back and reclaim his throne. But that’s not happening, as the King has been captured for the last six years, and is probably dead.
Goal: Stay alive. Find something worth living for, apart from Will, his best friend and cousin. Find the King and bring him back. Stop the Sheriff and his assassin, Guy of Gisborne from bleeding dry the entire country with their taxes. So much to do, so little time. So little food.
Story: (watch the video)

Bane of his existence: A boy that saved his life, and now is part of the outlaws’ band. He never stops talking. Also, there’s something strange about the boy. He’s brave and funny and loyal, but… he kind of looks like a girl.

In this story: He’s in for so much pain. But also, kisses. And killing things. So yay.
Short description of Everything I Do:A boy saves Robin Hood’s life in combat, and gets wounded. Robin brings him to the forest and he and his friends nurse him back to life. Robin trusts the boy and makes him part of his band, his life, and eventually his heart. Except, the boy isn’t a boy. It’s someone from his past, a loyal friend who was betrayed. And she is here to destroy them all. 
And then (of course) feelings have to enter and complicate everything. What follows is.. Death, laughter, archery contests, berries (@darquedreamerreads lol), robberies, forbidden love, swooning, drowning, raining, girls in boys’ clothes, men in women’s clothes, assassination atempts gone wrong and right, and most of all slow-burn and pining (so much pining). It’s a blast!

About M.C. Frank

M.C. Frank is a writer, reader and survivor. She likes to put her characters in icy-cold dystopian worlds where kissing is forbidden (among other things), or in green forests ruled by evil Sheriffs. If they're in Jane Austen's England, they have to be running away from a traumatic childhood, or if they are in our contemporary world, they're scared they'll die before they have finished high school. She’s evil like that. But don’t worry, she knows we all need a little hope and joy in our lives, so in everything she writes there is a strong theme of love, passion and redemption.

Her New Adult novel Lose Me, about a British movie star and a stunt girl shooting a modern adaptation of Pride and Prejudice in Corfu, was an overall amazon bestseller the week of its release. Her debut series, a dystopian sci-fi saga, No Ordinary Star, has been beloved by many readers, and also climbed the charts when each book was released.
She is proudly Greek, and her Greek mythology retelling about mermen princes and nerdy girls, Salt for Air, came out last year to critical acclaim.
She has a degree in physics and currently lives with her 'dude' in a home filled with candles, laptops and notebooks. Her hobbies include rearranging her overflowing bookshelves, fangirling over K-drama and swimming. She hopes to become a mermaid someday—fingers crossed.
