A barracks full of beautiful boys. A girl in disguise, living among them.
15-year-old Marieke disguises herself as a boy to flee to the elite archers’ guild of St. Sebastian for refuge. It’s a dangerous deception, but when the handsome young Journeyman Tristan takes her under his wing as his squire, she’s got to stay – at least long enough to help him beat out his brutal arch-rival to win the guild competitions. Keeping her identity a secret will be hard. Living in close quarters with a pack of gorgeous boys? That will be harder still. But the hardest thing of all will be keeping the vow she makes for herself: to see Tristan become the next Guardsman, without ever letting him find out she’s a girl who loves him.
Robin Hood meets Mulan and the Princess Bride in this romantic adventure set in 14th century Belgium and packed with wit, swoon-worthy boys, and archery competitions.
