About the Book


I’ve mixed feelings about this book which made me stop to consider for a while whether I would rate it 3 or 4 stars. On the one hand, the writing seemed more young adult to me than some of her other books that are marketed as such. It some ways, it was almost too simplistic for what I was expecting. However, I was curious about how the storyline would resolve itself, and I definitely want to continue reading the series to learn more about Lord Thornbeck. While I love many of this author’s other books, this isn’t my favorite. Still, overall it was enjoyable, and since I want to keep reading I decided it earned 4-stars.


Swan Lake meets Robin Hood when the beautiful daughter of a wealthy merchant by day becomes the region’s most notorious poacher by night, and falls in love with the forester.

Jorgen is the forester for the wealthy margrave and must find and capture the poacher who has been killing and stealing the margrave’s game. When he meets the lovely and refined Odette at the festival and shares a connection during a dance, he has no idea she is the one who has been poaching the margrave’s game.

Odette justifies her crime of poaching because she thinks the game is going to feed the poor, who are all but starving, both in the city and just outside its walls. But will the discovery of a local poaching ring reveal a terrible secret? Has the meat she thought she was providing for the poor actually been sold on the black market, profiting no one except the ring of black market sellers?

The one person Odette knows can help her could also find out her own secret and turn her over to the margrave, but she has no choice. Jorgen and Odette will band together to stop the dangerous poaching ring . . . and fall in love. But what will the margrave do when he discovers his forester is protecting a notorious poacher?
