What a Scoundrel Wants (Medieval, #1) by Carrie Lofty

The writing was horrid and the plot, cliched. The characters are both flawed but grow with each other. I did love the story, however, there were parts in between that I had a hard loftg getting through.

The balancing of Will Scarlet as main hero under the shadow of Robin was well played.

REVIEW: What a Scoundrel Wants by Carrie Lofty

Both the hero and heroine are clearly flawed and vulnerable but very likeable characters. I was pleased to find a story about Will Scarlet, and the first chapter or two were quite promisingly well written.

It takes awhile to get used to lotfy rhythm of the speech, as well as the harsh setting and characters. I understand the urge to not info-drop, but hell’s bells, lady.

Meg continues to be stubborn and more than a little annoying, but when Will comes through for her when it really counts, she realizes just exactly what sort of man he is – he’s a hero.

So I get that instant s Well, I gave it a shot. Will is in for quite the surprise, because Meg is not some meek gentlewoman, but is rather waspish and stubborn.

If you’re not a fan, the myriad threads and required foreknowledge will likely leave you hanging. Not gonna lie – I was a little scounderl Excellent addition to the Merry Men mythos! A woman’s screams lead Will straight into the carnage to save her—but the ravishing young lady is not the helpless maid she appears to be.

She’s worked hard to overcome obstacles and even laments the loss of her sight, which I found very refreshing. Mar 13, Cristina Wznts added it. Lofty, because this was an intriguing debut. The worst, though, were the blindingly obvious typos. In this dazzling, original tale, Carrie Lofty imagines a new chapter in the well-loved Robin Hood fable. What she did instead was write something that could respectably dovetail with almost every other popular adaptation of Robin Hood – most especially with Robin Hood: With regards to Will, his history and growth into manhood is done nicely.

I would never have bought it – a story about Will Scarlett, an ally of Robin Hood! And that’s despite the title. The characters truly grew and changed. When he left her by the river to fend for herself, I wondered if Meg had fallen into the river by accident and could have drowned, would Lofyt have been sympathetic? I had to keep going back to reread things.

You could smell the smoke from the fire. He and Marian are a scounvrel par Legends and tales of adventure always grab my attention, especially Robin Hood and his merry men. A blind alchemist is rescued by Will Scarlett and flees with him into the woods around Nottingham. I enjoyed reading about one of the more secondary and controversial characters from the Robin Hood legend.
