And the dreadful Guy of Gisborne wishes to step into Robin’s shoes as Lord of Locksley and Marian’s fiancé.

But with a sweep of his green cloak and the flash of her sword, Marian makes the choice to become her own hero: Robin Hood.
How Not to Ask a Boy to Prom by S.J. Goslee
Nolan is sixteen, gay, and (definitely) still a virgin. He’s never had a boyfriend, or even been kissed. His big sister stages an elaborate “prom-posal” so Nolan can ask out his crush, but he freezes. So bad boy Bern offers to fake-date Nolan, which seems like a perfect solution. What he doesn’t think about is Bern’s ex-girlfriend, who seriously wants to kill him.
Serious Moonlight by Jenn Bennett

There she meets Daniel, who shares her appetite for intrigue, and he’s stumbled upon a real-life mystery: a famous reclusive writer—never before seen in public—might be secretly meeting someone at the hotel.

But all his plans go awry when a macabre Muse named Lenore appears to him. Lenore steps out of the shadows with one request: “Let them see me!”
