The memories flooded again.
‘Here is your food for the next fortnight,’ a voice said, faceless in the dungeon’s darkness. ‘Make it last.’

A piece of bread so hard that it made a clanging noise as it hit the ground by his feet, landing in the shallow end of a puddle. Robin had expected the guard to laugh, but he heard no snicker as his only piece of nourishment was ruined.
The guards knew that this stale bread they brought every few days was all that separated the prisoners from starvation, yet they took pleasure in making it as uneatable as possible. As if it was their job to torture the prisoners, and not just Gisborne’s.
‘Next time,’ Robin had sneered at the guard.
The guard had stopped short, his chain mail clanging with the sudden movement.
‘What did you say?’ The guard’s voice was low and gravelly, as if he hadn’t used it in a while.
‘I said next time,’ Robin had coughed, ‘maybe next time you’ll have better aim. You missed the deepest part of the puddle. You must be new here.’
Complete silence followed. Robin held his breath, certain that he would be beaten. But he hadn’t. After a few moments, the guard had smiled widely, showing glowing white teeth in the darkness.
‘Maybe,’ he’d agreed in that hard voice, but there had been laughter in it.

Robin reached out and, concealing his hand under his cloak, he grasped the guard’s hand warmly in his. The guard shook it with vigor.
“My heartfelt thanks,” Robin whispered to him. “That was close.”
“Wrong,” the guard said, removing his hand. His face was serious, his expression unbroken by even the hint of a smile. “What we have here is a stupid, thoughtless thief, walking straight into the wolf’s mouth, unaccompanied. He also seems to have left his brain behind, along with his friends.”
Robin smiled wider, showing his teeth cheekily. “You’ve got it, exactly,” he replied.
“What are you doing here?”
“Waiting to catch a glimpse of the festivities, of course, same as you,” Robin winked.
“Ah, I see. Being stupid as always,” the guard hissed. “Confound it, I should come with you. Look, whatever notion you’ve taken into your big head, it’s not worth it. Things are volatile in there. You shouldn’t be alone.”
“I  won’t do anything,” Robin replied, turning serious. “I’ll just be in and out, promise.” He started to leave, but turned back. “I thank you again. You are as much a part of us as you were from the beginning, Gilbert, you know that. I would be lost without you, as you just saw. Stay safe, my friend, until we meet again.”
The guard who wasn’t a guard, but an outlaw in disguise, was silent for a few seconds, his Adam’s apple bobbing up and down. He moved his lips a few times before words came actually out.
“Robin,” the guard murmured and for the first time, signs of some strong emotion crossed his stony expression. “Robin, for God’s sake, keep yourself alive.”
“You too, Gilbert.”
With a nod, Robin grasped his shoulder briefly and walked on towards the torches.
“I will if you will!” Gilbert called after him, not caring about being overheard.
Robin knew he was afraid for him, and he was more than grateful that he’d been there at the right moment to save him, but he had no time to explain himself.
So many years had passed since that first time when Gilbert had thrown him food in the sheriff’s dungeon. Robin trusted him with his life. Yet, the cold, hard truth was that he couldn’t offer him the one thing he truly wanted: he couldn’t take Gilbert with him into the forest and away from the castle and the thought pained Robin immensely, but he needed one of his own men down here. For Gilbert, Robin was the one living their dream and fighting the good fight.
If only he knew what a torture every living moment was.

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?

In the second installment of the Outlaws series, there are more deadly secrets, more pining and more danger to be found.
You'll discover the answers to many of your questions from book one, and new ones will keep you at the edge of your seat.
Will Robin Hood find out the truth about Ru?
Will Robin and Ru kiss?
Will they finally share the truth about their origins?
Will they stay alive?
Will every wrong be made right?

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