The Black Thorne's Rose (The Author's Cut Edition)

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Stripped of her castle and lands, gently bred Lady Emlyn refuses marriage to a cruel lord and flees to the safety of the greenwood—where she soon falls for a bold forest outlaw, the Black Thorne, who courts danger in King John’s England. 

Swept up in a game of passion and daring deception, Emlyn learns too late that the mysterious outlaw and the ruthless lord she despises are one and the same man. 
Now, for both Thorne and Emlyn, the greatest risk of all exists in the truth... and love.

Customer Reviews


I greatly enjoyed this work. It was wonderfully written and had a fantastic story line! I think I may have found a new favorite author!

Good STORY but not a particularly good BOOK

I would give this 5 stars but simply cannot do so in good conscience: it is just full of typos. Not grammatical errors - it is blessedly free of those - but words omitted or repeated, chunks of sentences missing, inconsistencies in spellings & capitalization (which, yes, I do realize are "part of" the scope of all things grammatical, but I am not including such at this time).

Otherwise, it is a decent story - though not quite . . . ahem, explicit enough for this genre. Intimacy & romance are more alluded to than vivid enough for a reader to "experience" the world this author has created - which is, after all, the whole purpose of writing & an author's goal, to connect with readers & share your world with them. When it comes to those kinds of scenes, it is better to include no description at all than to write a bland, lukewarm, unclear scene.


Loved every minute of this book!
