Hood and Dagger
We all know the tale of Robin Hood. But what if he wasn't the good-hearted thief we all know and love? What if he was a criminal mastermind without a shred of goodness? And Maid Marian was the only one powerful enough to stop him.
When Robin Lockley returned from the Crusades, he discovered that he had lost everything. His family was dead, his home was stolen, and everything he owned was gone. All except a Lincoln Green tunic, pants, and hat. He didn't take it very well.
Marian Fitzgerald had always lived the good life. Doting father, loving mother, and beautiful looks. Plus a vast fortune. Well, that was until Prince John came and demanded that she marry him within a fortnight. When she didn't, he killed everyone on the estate, stole everything she owned, and cut a large horizontal slash underneath her left eye, ruining her beauty. She didn't take that very well either.
With one character walking in the light of revenge and another strolling in the Shadows, what will happen to this pair of iconic and star-crossed lovers? Will the story ever be the same?
