What A Scoundrel Wants- Coming December 2008


Carrie Lofty
our fellow blogger and North and South Crusader, has her first book coming out in print! The cover shows some nice man chest aka mantitty!

And the synopsis:
In this dazzling, original tale, Carrie Lofty imagines a new chapter in the well-loved Robin Hood fable. Meet Robin's rakish nephew, Will Scarlet, a man whose talents with the sword and the ladies are legendary--until his desire for one woman changes everything...

A Passionate Love...
A swordsman for the Sheriff of Nottingham, Will Scarlet has finally emerged from his famous uncle's shadow. But when he's unwittingly drawn into a bloody battle between the Sheriff and a nobleman, it's impossible to tell friend from foe. 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...

An Amorous Lady...
Meg of Keyworth lost her sight to illness years ago, but that hasn't stopped her mission to save her imprisoned sister, who's been arrested by none other than Will Scarlet. Meg wants to hate Will for betraying her family, but he sparks heated desire in her heart--a desire that only he can satisfy. Meg is lovely and loving, and bedding her is sensual bliss. To please her in every way is what he wants most...for Will know he will cherish her heart forever...

I have always been a fan of Robin Hood, but for once it will be nice to see Will Scarlet, front and center.
Congrats Carrie! Can't wait till December *G*

I want this book :grin: But then, what else is new, right?

I am totally intrigued by this story. I also love the Robin Hood legend and I'm curious to see what Carrie does with Will. I have 2 different versions in my mind: the hot-headed Will played by Ray Winstone, and the calmer, resourceful one played by Harry...something or another from the RH w/ Richard Armitage.

Interesting that you should say that about the two Wills you're thinking of. Mine is actually based on Christian Slater's turn in RH:PoT. I was over at Shiloh Walker's blog yesterday talking about the thought process behind my version. Come visit!

And thanks for the plug! I was excited to check my bloglines and find my giant mantitty cover front and center. This "stumbling on random internet stuff about myself" thing is getting strange...in the best sense :)

Well, we all know my love for Robin Hood especially when Richard plays the evil yet sexy Gisbourne.

oooohhh - I loved me Christian Slater in that particular version too. I heard that they left a lot of his scenes on the cutting room floor :(
It will be nice to see a more fully developed Will - with CS as an image
