Dark Warrior: To Tame a Wild Hawk is a historical romance with paranormal elements that drew me in from the very first sentence. I'm into paranormal romance bit time, usually because I love to read about paranormal creatures, but here it was the beautiful writing and voice that grabbed me from the start and didn't let me go until the very end. It's 1871. Mandy has been fighting off Ashley's advances for years. She's neither interested in him as a husband, nor in the possibility of losing her land and ranch to the one evil person that seems to intimidate everyone in the village. Her heart has been filled with love for Hawk with whom she shares a deep spiritual connection, one that keeps calling to her, sending her visions. And while they're destined to be together and they both know it, Hawk's been hiding a secret for years, and this secret could cost them both everything they have --- even the love they share. I thought Dark Warrior: To Tame a Wild Hawk was a beautiful romance with excellent writing and a loveable heroine. Mandy's as feisty as she is beautiful, and she won't let a man walk all over her. I also liked Hawk, who's sexy and brooding and who comes with a dark past that just won't let him get on with his life. The atmosphere was a foreboding one; one moment there's hope that everything will turn out as it should, and the next the reader can sense something's about to take place, but just won't be able to point out what it is. This was a fast, action packed read with well-developed characters. While the plot was one of twists and turns, it was the characters and beautiful writing that kept me glued to the page. I know this is one book I'll read again!

All in all a good read. Got confusing at times but still kept my attention.

This is an innocent, sweet read. The author made a well-developed world full of interesting characters that transports you back to the Wild West. The narrative voice is third person, which is an unusual choice for a romance novel, but it does allow the reader to know what various characters are thinking in the scenes. The hero is very Alpha, however the heroine gives him a run for his money, keeping him on his toes. If you like a good western romance then saddle up and read Dark Warrior.

I started this book with such high hopes. I'd read others readers reviews and thought this would be a perfect math. It does have a good plot, several of them in fact. Unfortuanately that is also makes this book... boring. Too longwinded and confused. The title makes one think the story will be about Hawk. But its more about every one and every thing else. And why there had to be so many random sex scenes, no heart or pasdion, just words? Three days of being snowed in with no end in sight and I still can't find it in myself to finish. Its so drawn out I don't care anymore.

this book felt like two different halves: one one hand, it was very confusing. the characters were hard to keep track of in the beginning, some of them changed names, and it felt like they knew information that the reader didn't. plus all the names were alike. then it picked up steam, got better in the second half of the book and you started to root for the main charactes to make it. it ended well but I'm not sure if I would reread it.

I couldnt finish this book. It seemed to jump around too much. All of a sudden the character would say or do or think about something that was completely out of context and had no background or other explanation. Also the characters didnt seem to stay true to themselves. They would be described in a particular way or you would pick up on character traits and then they would do things completely out of character. I just didnt seem well written or at least well edited.

Review by: Christi Snow on Jun. 03, 2011 : My Review: This was a powerful story and I really enjoyed it. Set in 1871, in Wyoming, this is the story of Mandy, who is fighting to save her ranch from the local bad-guy, McCandle, who wants her ranch and plans to marry her to get it. For years, Mandy has had visions of the man that she will marry and it is not McCandle, it is Hawk. Hawk is a white man with way too much tragedy in his life. At the age of 6, he was forced to abandon his new-born sister and saw his wagon train murdered by his father. Playing dead in the high grass, he was found and adopted by a Cherokee warrior. At the age of 10, his Cherokee family died and he was adopted by the Lakota. Now he is in Wyoming as a gunslinger with his own ideas for McCandle. Both Hawk and Mandy have spent a lot of time with the Indians and understand the mystical qualities of the visions that they have both had about each other. But that doesn't stop them from questioning the wisdom of their joining, although with circumstances the way that they are, and with their explosive chemistry, there really isn't any other way for them to go. I loved this story...quite honestly, much more than I expected to (you did notice yesterday what I said about historicals, right?) From the very beginning of the book, I was hooked and read it pretty much in one sitting (and it's a full-length book.) There is a lot of action and a LOT going on in this book. Hawk is a tough, strong guy, but he is hiding a HUGE secret. He has withstood a lot in his life, but now he is all about protecting Mandy and saving her ranch. To help facilitate that, he brings in Jake and Kid...also, gorgeous tough guys (you can't have too many of those in a book, you know?) But you know, Mandy is pretty tough too. She has been running the ranch by herself for 3 years and doesn't like Hawk pushing her around. There are some great scenes with them as they have a battle of wills. The chemistry between the two of them is wonderfully written. This is a wonderful western full of the mystical, magical Indian lore. It features a great romance (actually a few of them as you see some of the side characters fall in love too) and great cowboy action. There were a few minor issues with the book...the first half has some disjointed scenes that were a little distracting, but the quality of the story line (for me anyway) just made these a minor annoyance. The author also lists this as paranormal. I am not sure I would agree with that although seeing the bits about the next book in the series, I think that I can see where it's going to a more paranormal slant as a series. This particular book, though, I would simply consider historical with some heavy mystical qualities. ;o) I definitely would recommend this book especially if you are a fan of western romance. It was emotional, beautiful, and even suspenseful. A fabulous read! (reviewed within a month of purchase)

The story line was great but was written in a confusing manner

The author really needed to provide a bit of background info about the female characters. It would have helped tremendously. The book draws you in quickly but you feel as though something is missing and that the first portion of the book is missing. The characters are warm and likeable. I felt the author skipped around too much. The book has potential, however it needs more background at the beginning to feel complete.

I haven't read an historical romance book in quite a while. This was well written. It was filled with intrigue and the romance depictions were tastefully woven, unlike today's writers who tend to be too graphic.

I found the beginning of the book to be confusing, but stuck with it and soon was hooked. A little supernatural, a little cowboy, a little wild west!
