From New York Times bestselling author comes The Huntress of Thornbeck Forest!

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?


  • A delightful fairy tale for the little girl inside.

    By Debora Wilder
    I love the main characters in this story. Both Odette and Jorgen had very difficult childhoods after they were each orphaned. But they have both risen above those days. Their hearts and characters were developed through those trials. I thoroughly enjoyed how Melanie combined aspects from both Swan Lake and Robin Hood in this charming and original story. It is a very entertaining book. It was very interesting for me to try and figure out which of the characters turned out to be the evil person (or people) that were trying to destroy their lives.
