Lion Heart (Scarlet #3) by A. C. Gaughen (Teen Fantasy Adventure) *Advanced Readers Copy*

Expected publication: May 19th 2015

Lion HeartScarlet has captured the hearts of readers as well as the heart of Robin Hood, and after ceaseless obstacles and countless threats, readers will finally find out the fate of the Lady Thief. Imprisoned by Prince John for months, Scarlet finds herself a long way from Nottinghamshire. After a daring escape from the Prince’s clutches, she learns that King Richard’s life is in jeopardy, and Eleanor of Aquitaine demands a service Scarlet can’t refuse: spy for her and help bring Richard home safe. But fate—and her heart—won’t allow her to stay away from Nottinghamshire for long, and together, Scarlet and Rob must stop Prince John from going through with his dark plans for England. They can not rest until he’s stopped, but will their love be enough to save them once and for all?

Stars: 3.5/5

As far as conclusions go this one was pretty good. I’m a sucker for a good Robin Hood series and this one didn’t disappoint. It was a different take than any I had other read before and that’s probably why I enjoyed it so much. I would have liked an Epilogue for this book, it ended a bit abruptly for me. I love how strong Scarlet/Marian is. Even when everything is against her and she feels week she is strong. I also love that Rob allows her to be. Sometimes he tries to treat her as a fragile female, but once she proves she isn’t he lets her be and loves her for who she is. If your a fan of Robin Hood and fantasy I would recommend this series.
