To Catch a Thief…

For centuries, Gideon Montrose has served the King of Fairies without question and, often, without mercy. So when the King orders him to apprehend a notorious thief, Gideon obeys. But when he finally gets his hands on the beautiful culprit, Gideon’s in for a shock.

Arabella Locksley is none other than the spirited, unpredictable woman he knew back in Make Believe as Robin Hood — the love of his life whose tragic death destroyed his chance at Happily Ever After.

Now, he has an impossible choice. Betray the woman he once loved, or the king he’s bound to serve?

My Opinion  5 STARS

** Copy provided by Netgalley and Kensington Books for an honest review**

This book starts three years after the last book ends, and at the beginning with all the things that have happens since I feel like I have missed something, as a book 3.5 has not come out filling this missed gap it feels a little odd with a quick few lines as to explain what has happened. (I feel I can't really say with out giving that game away).

The story is told from Gideon (Little John's) POV.  We find out how fiercely loyal he is and how deeply he loves.  He has always had pride in how well he completes the task of guarding and helping the royal family in all their needs.

When he finds his believed long dead lover Arabella Locksley (Robin Hood) his whole word starts to spin on its axis.  Secrets and lies become unravelled to lead with a dramatic ending .

The book had me in tears a few times with the powerful feelings of love between Arabella and Gideon.  We visit scenes from their past in Make Believe when things went well for them.  We eve find strong friendships are even stronger than even he believed and it has a HEA with love conquering all.

The previous main characters also appear in the book to a small intent as they do in previous books as they help out our main characters at the end.

Again the stories we have been told as a child have been given the authors twist and rebranded as her own in these twisted tales of transplanted tales in the real world.

A brilliant series.
