The simple goodness of a dream reminds us how to fall in love.
1896: Oklahoma Indian Territory.
Mary Goode has spent nearly a decade hiding her sweet, off-kilter brother, Robin, and two fellow misfits after she rescued them from a brutal institution. But unknown to Mary, the trio's fascination with Robin Hood and their hero's crusade to "steal from the rich and give to the poor" may have led to a few actual robberies.
U.S. Marshal Shane Latimer is on the trail of the inept Robin Hood and his shabby band of not-so-tough Merry Men when his rattlesnake-spooked-horse lands him in care of Robin’s fiercely protective sister, Mary, aka Maid Marian.

He’s instantly charmed by Mary’s devotion to her whimsical brood, but worries that she may be hiding the truth. Still, for a loner like Shane, the appeal of their family affection, love and loyalty, combined with Mary’s growing hold on his heart, is hard to resist.
Mary is equally torn. For the first time in her life she has someone to share the challenges of keeping her brood out of trouble. But will her quest for happiness forever shatter the idyllic life she's forged for her special family...?
And how will Shane reconcile his duties as a lawman and his love for Maid Marian and her outlaw brood?

I had no idea what to expect when I picked up this book. I was so pleased when I got into this story. I laughed and cried my way through the book. Being an Arkansas girl growing up close to the state line a short drive from Fort Smith with one of y best friends living in Tahlequah, this book was set at home for me. 

So not only was it easy to connect to the characters it was just as easy to connect to the scenery. I loved the characters and the plot. I love Robin Hood so that was another reason to fall in love with this book. Reading familiar slang in the speech of some characters reminded me of my dad and grandpa. I love that. I loved the historic references too. I loves this book period. Could not put it down and I definitely recommend to all. Romance, family, love, lies, action... what more could a girl ask for? 



  1. Wow, thank you, Lisa. You absolutely made my day. My late husband and I bought a home in Claremore when he worked in the aerospace industry in NE Tulsa for about 5 years. We really enjoyed the people and the "Green Country." I spent a lot of time researching the history and geography of the area. One of our favorite places was Lake Oologah and Will Rogers' birth place. My book, A WILLING SPIRIT and my novella in I NEVER THOUGHT I'D SEE YOU AGAIN should appeal to you, since they are set on the banks of the Verdigris. :) I really enjoyed your review, and am so pleased you liked MAID MARIAN AND THE LAWMAN. :) Thank you!

    1. I loved it. Thank you for the chance to read it. Both of your other works sound great to. I will definitely have to read them. I think my favorite area would have to be lake Tenkiller. This is a great story so thank you for giving us such wonderful characters to read about!

  2. Thanks Lisa! It sounds great! I'mt not a huge fan of romance novels myself but this one sounds really good. <3
