"Dark Warrior 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." JDS

"I loved this book!!...I've read over 600 (my kindle says so) romance books of every variety in the last 3 years and I can honestly say this one stood out for me because it was truly different from the norm. This author has something to give to the genre. Maybe its just the books I have been reading but...boy was this a welcome read...its a story that you would enjoy someone reading to you because it is full of life, imagination, and a newness I have come across in at least 150 books. LOL :)" SYDJulia22

"This is a great book, and a good author. I will definately download the author's books again to my kindle." PS

From the Author

Dark Warrior: To Tame a Wild Hawk is from my historical western romance series, Dark Cloth series. Dark Warrior: Kid is coming out and Dark Gunman, Jake is coming out right behind it. My father was an old mountain man, who grew up with the old cowboys who were around before barb wire fences. He instilled a love in me for the old Wild West.

I have a great love for everything paranormal and have 3 sister series that are Dark Fantasy/paranormal series: the Sons of the Dark Mother, Children of Atlantis, and I have Daughters of the Dark Moon series in the works. I have also have YA fantasy/ paranormal series in the works: Realm of the Jaguar Witch and Realm of the Elemental Witch. I have a contemporary literature series Shadows and Light Series: Her Dark Mirror and Her Broken Wings Could Fly.
I love hearing from my readers. Feel free to visit one of my sites and talk to me:)

4.0 out of 5 stars A great western read... June 5, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting November 25, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I find that I quite like Native American Romance. I liked the Hero- Hawk and the Heroine- Mandy. I did experience an "give in already" moment as the book dragged in places. I especially liked Kat but thought the author could have had the heroine a bit more spunky. For me Mandy came off as a spoiled brat and frustrated me. I did finish the book and thought the book was likable. Check it out and see for yourself.

2.0 out of 5 stars Just...silly December 21, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I did not enjoy this book, there are just too many vague things going on and no real explanation for any of them that makes sense. Read the entire thing and still don't understand the motivation behind many of the characters, and who/what the heck is the man in black and what was his purpose? It's like the author got tired of writing and gave up trying to explain anything. This is the first time I've started a series and haven't considered purchasing the next book. By the end I just wanted to get the book over with.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too frustrating February 6, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Too many unanswered questions and too many loose ends for me to enjoy this one. I kept trying to get through it because of the Native American mystical parts because I thought it'd be an interesting story.
If I'm reading a book and it gets so confusing and frustrating that I have to re-read sections to figure it out, it's time to put it down and move on. That's what I did.

2.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't make it halfway through! January 9, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm a voracious reader of many fiction genres. Historical romance is a favorite of mine, and a touch of the paranormal in the heroine's prescience seemed like it would add to the fun. Sadly, I found the lengthy flashbacks and stutteringly interrupting flashes of insight so irritating that I abandoned the book just a quarter of the way through. I can appreciate the author's intent to build a rich background for the characters and plot, but the pace and style were less illuminating than ineffective.

5.0 out of 5 stars A well-written, captivating romance June 5, 2011
By Scott
Format:Kindle Edition
Dark Warrior 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 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!
