The Huntress of Thornbeck Forest by Melanie Dickerson (47)

A beautiful maiden who poaches to feed the poor.
A handsome forester on a mission to catch her.
Danger and love are about to unite in Thornbeck Forest.
The margrave owns the finest hunting grounds for miles around—and who teaches children to read, but by night this young beauty has become the secret lifeline to the poorest of the poor.
For Jorgen Hartman, the margrave’s forester, tracking down a poacher is a duty he is all too willing to perform. Jorgen inherited his post from the man who raised him . . . a man who was murdered at the hands of a poacher.
When Jorgen and Odette meet at the Midsummer festival and share a connection during a dance, neither has any idea that they are already adversaries.
The one man she wants is bound by duty to capture her; the one woman he loves is his cunning target . . . What becomes of a forester who protects a notorious poacher? What becomes of a poacher when she is finally discovered?

My review for The Golden Braid




REVIEW:
A great tale!
Think of Robin Hood, as a female, and mix it with a love triangle of sorts. That's pretty much the sum of this book.
It has that 'Disney-ending' I love so much too, where everyone is happy in the end. Well, at least the people who matter.
It was a breeze to read, even if it wasn't as exciting as I had hoped. The story focused more on the romance than the huntress and her ways, though it was in there. I felt like I would have loved more of that side of the story though.
Still, it was a great read, and one that went quickly because of the great writing. Many of you will enjoy it, provided you like a romance. I, personally, can't wait to read more from this author.


3/5
