Waiting on Wednesday: Lady Thief

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week I'm waiting on: Lady Thief by A.C. Gaughen (Scarlet #2)
From Goodreads:
Scarlet’s true identity has been revealed, but her future is uncertain. Her forced marriage to Lord Gisbourne threatens Robin and Scarlet’s love, and as the royal court descends upon Nottingham for the appointment of a new Sheriff, the people of Nottingham hope that Prince John will appoint their beloved Robin Hood. But Prince John has different plans for Nottingham that revolve around a fateful secret from Scarlet’s past even she isn’t yet aware of. Forced to participate at court alongside her ruthless husband, Scarlet must bide her time and act the part of a noblewoman—a worthy sacrifice if it means helping Robin’s cause and a chance at a future with the man she loves. With a fresh line of intrigue and as much passion as ever, the next chapter in Scarlet’s tale will have readers talking once again.

Back when I read the first book in this series in 2012, I was pleasantly surprised by this retelling of Robin Hood in which Will Scarlet is actually a young woman in disguise and a member of the Merry Men. I got really into it, but sequels hadn't yet been announced so I was afraid of not getting to find out what happened next! Lucky for me, book 2 in this planned trilogy is due out in February.
