A troublesome outlaw.
A tyrant king.
A crossing of tumultuous pasts.
And a knight tricked…
Hale: “Lady Claire,” I say to myself as I march through the castle. Her name rolls off the tip of my tongue; I wonder what she tastes like. I doubt she’ll have a chance to make it out of her wedding dress before I pull at her golden hair while flipping up her gown. She’ll be screaming her first time, but it should only be the one time and I’ll be a good husband after that—maybe.
Rue: Sir Hale believes I am his betrothed. I missed the opportunity to send him and his king straight to hell, but I will not miss again. I’m not sure I wantto kill Hale but once I learn more and get close enough, I won’t hesitate. By week’s end, they’ll both be dead.
This is a standalone reverse Robin Hood retelling. All hail, Hell’s Fire!
