Orphaned at a young age, Hallie
McIntyre was raised by a group of nuns in a convent where
she’d planned to eventually take her own vows of celibacy.
Hallie never imagined how her world would change when she
came across a wounded man in dire need of her help.
Assisting John Walking Hawk while he recuperates from his
wounds opens Hallie’s eyes to the possibility that maybe
there is more in life than prayer and abstinence. John Hawk
is not a simple man; he’s a man on a quest to avenge the
rape and murder of his dead wife. A man who comes with the
stigma of Indian blood flowing through his veins as he hands
out his own personal brand of justice to the men responsible
for tearing his world apart. Nothing will come easy for a
mixed breed and a white woman in a land where justice isn’t
given to everyone and sometimes the weight of a person’s
past can be deadly.
Set in a world long since gone, Hawk’s Woman
is the tale of an innocent young woman who decides to follow
her heart to happiness. Hallie was too naďve in the way of
the world to be afraid of a man who was surely running from
the law which made for a sweet love to build and grow.
Taking a chance on Hawk, a man who couldn’t see past his
need for vengeance, Hallie showed a strength that belied her
age and experience. Madeline Baker’s novel will be
considered by some a slow burning tale of romance. Outside
of the instances of danger from varied enemies, human and
animal, the story basically outlines a sweet and tender
romance between a man who needs a reason to live again. A
reason he didn’t realize he already had without the guidance
of a young woman’s love. Hawk’s Woman is heart
warming historical and one readers who like their romance to
simmer before the big pay off will definitely enjoy.
