Lord of the Forest

The Greenwood

Kay Berrisford once again melds magic, mystery, myth and legend with sizzling sex and smoldering emotion. She offers a complex and fascinating take on the man known as Robin Hood.

Greenwood Forest is enchanting, dangerous and seductive. It did take some time to warm up to Cal but that's really the nature of his character. He and Robin have a strong chemistry from the start. The author's true talent lies in her powerful descriptions. The landscape, the strange inhabitants of the forest and, most of all, Robin and Cal. They come alive and become real.

That Ms. Berrisford loves mythology and history is apparent. The reader becomes part of the magic. Cal and Robin have a hard path to follow. It's littered with betrayal and lies but they are still so good together.

Fantastic sex scenes convey the depth of emotion that the two share. I highly recommend this engaging read as well as the other books in the Greenwood series. Great writing, smoldering sex and a different kind of love story awaits in each book.


Robin Hood finds new dangers and a new chance of love when he rescues Cal in the Greenwood Forest. But Cal isn't what he seems and neither is Greenwood Forest. Together they find themselves questioning all they believed and fighting for not only their lives but maybe all of England.

Book Blurb for Lord of the Forest

England, 1217. Dark forces are rising. In the Greenwood, foul spirits grow powerful, and greedy barons plunder the lands. Only one man dares fight back--Robin Hood.

Robin's band of brothers is broken. Now a lone warrior, he denies his famous name and laments the friends and lovers he's lost. When the fair folk capture Cal, a beautiful young forester descended from the Greenwood's ancient protectors, Robin rescues him and forges a new alliance.

Despite a sizzling attraction, Robin senses Cal isn't like his old comrades, and he's right. Cal's been raised as a royal spy. He plans to seduce and betray Robin, but can't harm the man he's falling hard for. Mistrust and arguments spill into passionate lovemaking, as Cal learns the meaning of loyalty, fighting beside Robin, the only friend he's ever known. Even the enchanted forest seeks to bind Robin and the returned protector ever tighter.

Their connection will be tested by nature's wildest forces, Robin's past, Cal's lies, and in a baron's darkest dungeon. To survive, Robin and Cal must admit their love and embrace their true destinies. Only then can they save England and each other--and win their happiness ever after.
