Dauntless by Dina Sleiman

Where Legend and History Collide,  One Young Woman Will Fight for the Innocent

Born a baron's daughter, Lady Merry Ellison is now an enemy of the throne after her father's failed assassination attempt upon the king. Bold and uniquely skilled, she is willing to go to any lengths to protect the orphaned children of her former village--a group that becomes known as "The Ghosts of Farthingale Forest." Merry finds her charge more difficult as their growing notoriety brings increasing trouble their way.

Timothy Grey, ninth child of the Baron of Greyham, longs to perform some feat so legendary that he will rise from obscurity and earn a title of his own. When the Ghosts of Farthingale Forest are spotted in Wyndeshire, where he serves as assistant to the local earl, he might have found his chance. But when he comes face-to-face with the leader of the thieves, he's forced to reexamine everything he's known.

I received this book from The Book Club Network in exchange for my honest opinion. No other compensation has been given.
A big thanks to my good friend Starr, who read and reviewed this book for me. This is what she had to say. 
This book is a really “fun read”.    It is a mix of history (set in medieval times), legend, romance, and even some suspense and action.    The main character, Merry, reminds me of a lady “Robin hood”.   I love the fact that the “band of thieves” that she leads is mostly very young people and children. It has some "Catholic" overtones because of the Medieval setting, but ....that is how it would have been.  It is a very good book to curl up with on a rainy day.
