Overview

After a fateful hunting accident sends her on the run from the law, Robyn finds herself deep in the heart of Sherwood Forest. All she really wants to do is provide for her family and stay out of trouble, but when the damnable Sheriff of Nottingham levies the largest tax in the history of England, she's forced to take matters into her own hands. Relying on the help of her merry band of misfits and the Sheriff’s intriguing—and off-limits—daughter, Marian, Robyn must find a way to pull off the biggest heist Sherwood has ever seen.

With both heart and freedom at stake, just how much is she willing to risk to ensure the safety of the ones she loves?

Nottingham is a delightful romp rife with bois bearing bows, transmen wielding quarterstaffs, noble ladies loving ladies bawdy bisexual musicians, naughty nonbinary outlaws, and saucy sapphic nuns—in other words, Robyn Hood like you've never seen her before.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“In Nottingham, Anna Burke has created a Sherwood Forest both familiar to readers of the classic tale and deftly, vividly reimagined for a queer audience. Burke’s prose is lush and detailed, her storytelling as fast-paced and thrilling as a damn good heist. Steadfast, clever, and deadly with a bow, Robyn had me captivated from the first page, and her achingly slow-burn romance with Marian left me breathless. In turn heartbreaking and heart-pounding, this lesbian retelling of Robin Hood and Maid Marian is the fairy tale I’ve always been waiting for.” —Nina Varela, author of  Crier's War
