Book Description

Drew is the last of the four siblings to return to Galveston, the first to admit he is in over his head. Stranded in a high-priced bordello because of a wounded leg, Drew finds himself being nursed by a woman of mystery. Sensual lady of the night or innocent angel of mercy, she keeps her identity secret. But as he is reunited with his brother and sisters, and the wrongs of the past are righted, one thing becomes clear: Tricia Lee Shepherd is the other half of his soul, the only person who can make his future shine bright.

3.0 out of 5 stars Recommended for Those Who've Read the 1st Three February 8, 2008
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Compared to the first three books in this series, this book falls short. In order to make this book able to stand alone (for readers who haven't read at least 1 of the first 3 books in this series), the author spends a lot of time explaining characters and events from the first 3 books. So much happened in those books, that it takes up a lot of space! I feel that the story line of this book suffers because of that. However, having read the first three books, I am definately glad that I read this one. Loose ends are tied up and the siblings are reunited. There is also a final twist revealed (but I think everyone already guessed this while reading the other books.) So, if you have read at least 1 of the first three books in this series and are curious about the fate of the siblings and Simon Gault, I recommend this book. If, however, you have not read at least one of the prior three books in this series, I don't recommend this book. The first three are much better written.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hawk's Prize January 11, 2007
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I found this book to be easy-reading as well as intriguing. I wanted to just read the whole book without taking a break!

The entire plot of the orphaned family was so interesting, yet very life-like. I could almost feel myself in the story.

1.0 out of 5 stars ... December 1, 2010
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book was awful. I almost can't believe it's written by Elaine Barbieri. For literally the whole first half of the book, Drew thought Tricia was an actual working whore. Besides that, the book was just boring. There was no feeling or emotion, it was just sentences telling an event, not a story. I had no idea how any of the characters felt or what they were thinking.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hawk's Prize December 1, 2006
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Drew Hawk went through the Civil War believing he was an orphan and that his siblings were all dead, something each of his them also thought true. Now, he has returned home to Galveston where he lands in the town bordello, not for fun, but because a wounded leg is keeping him laid low. The madam's adopted daughter, Tricia Shepherd, takes care of the handsome soldier, and when he begins searching for who killed his best friend, she is at his side. However, that's the most dangerous place to be; the man who destroyed Drew's family is in Galveston and determined to finish what he began long ago.

*** The series ends on one of the most heartwarming notes in literary history. If you have followed the rest of the Hawk series, the conclusion will leave a smile on your face.***

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Read! January 12, 2007
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
This was an excellent story in and of itself, but as a series it was wonderful. The story and people are great! Read all 4 books in 2 days. Could not put them down. I am becomeing an avid fan of O'Banyon's western historical romances! Cannot wait to see what comes out next!

5.0 out of 5 stars Number Four is Wonderful May 8, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
You must read this series. It is such a good story and the ending is such a surprise. I truly wish they would have written an epilogue. I'm sure in your own mind there is a happy ever after, but I want to know where the author leaves them months later. Read this series you won't be sorry!

4.0 out of 5 stars A good adventure post Civil War... December 2, 2014
By Dorothy
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this book but bought it unaware that it was the final book of a series. Not having the history of the four siblings that were left at an orphanage, I didn't get a close connection to the characters. I must admit that the author did a great job of filling in the relationships of the various characters but that must have made it boring to those readers that had read the entire series. I did like the twist at the end about the Bordello Madam and I won't give that secret away for new readers. I never totally understood the Simon character and why all the political drama over Houston and Galveston. I have enjoyed many of the Elaine Barbieri books and will read more of them. It is too late for me to go back and read the first four of this series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Series August 19, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I very much enjoyed this book that concluded the Hawk Crest Saga. The book had a great plot twist at the end. However, I only give the book 4 stars because I was disappointed with the ending because there were a couple loose ends that was not addressed that made the ending seem blunt and rushed. IMO, the book should've had an epilogue to smoothly conclude the ending to the series, which would've been more gratifying. Even so, I enjoyed all four books in the series. Book 1: Hawk's Pledge; Book 2: Hawk's Passion; Book 3: Hawk's Pursuit; Book 4: Hawk's Prize.
