First let me say thank you for having me here today! I’m excited to be sharing my debut book for Decedent with you today. The Hooded Man is a retelling of the classic Robin Hood legend with a sexy and unexpected twist.
In my debut book for Decadent Publishing, The Hooded Man, my heroine, Lady Marian of Locksley, is faced with just this problem, as well as seeking revenge for her father’s death and becoming the legendary outlaw Robin Hood. She’s a busy ass-kicker kind of chick.
Two handsome and seductive men enter her life, the stoic Will Scarlet and the darkly seductive Guy of Gisbourne. Marian must choose between them. But which one? The good boy from her past or the bad boy in her present? I won’t tell you who she picks. You’ll have to read the book to find out the answer to that question.
Men in fantasy and myth have held us captive as readers, writers, and women for thousands of years. Whether we are talking about King Arthur, Lancelot, Aragon or even Richard Armitage’s portrayal as Thorin Oakenshield in The Hobbit films, there is just something seductive about a man fighting to change his world—and the love of a good woman. Superman and Batman fall into this category as well. Comic book boys always fit the bill for tortured and sexy. Just look at Batman. Heck even the bad boys of myth, at least the Hollywood versions, seem to ignite our imaginations and our lusts. I’m looking at you Loki.
I hope you enjoy the struggle Lady Marian has to go through when choosing the love of her life, and the battle she faces as she dons the mantle of the legendary outlaw, Robin Hood!
Here’s a little teasing to whet your appetites:
In the heart of England there lived a hero armed with bow and arrow, ready to strike down injustice and tyranny—a swashbuckling legend so powerful it has lasted for centuries, captivating the hearts and minds of people the world over. But what if the legend was nothing but a lie?
When her father is brutally murdered in front of her eyes, Marian of Locksley is thrust into a world of treason and greed, where the ultimate prize is the throne of England. Left with little choice, she disguises herself as Robin of the Hood, an outlaw despised by royalty and loved by the people.
Forced into hiding deep within Sherwood Forest, Will Scarlet joins Robin Hood’s band of merry men, not realizing the fearless outlaw he follows is really the woman he desires for his own. He dares to risk everything in the fight for justice and love, longing for the day he can claim the courageous beauty. But first, England must be saved and legend must be born.
