The Huntress of Thornbeck Forest By: Melanie Dickerson

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
The Huntress of Thornbeck Forest
By: Melanie Dickerson

I love this series by Author Melanie Dickerson. I think everyone loves a fairy tale. The Huntress of Thornbeck is a Robin hood story. Steal from the rich to help the poor. Who will Odette go for the the man that is out to catch her or the one that is very wealthy and with his wealth she could do what's in her heart to help the poor.  a very enjoyable medieval story. Each character is well written. I love the spiritual bought into the story. Story takes some twist which is great and be prepared you won't want to put it down when you start. If you don't have it you might want to start reading this series. Looking forward to what is coming next.
