I loved this book! To Tame a Wild Hawk by Lenore Wolfe was a sweet historical romance, which had lovable characters and interesting plot with twists and turns. It was easy to read, the descriptions and dialogues flowed very smoothly and it is a book which you don't want to put away before it is finished.
Meet Amanda Kane - Mandy who is struggling with keeping her own ranch. She is fighting with the local man McCandle, who wants to get Mandy's ranch and marry her and he does everything to get what he wants, no means too cruel to achieve it. Mandy keeps getting visions of her future with another man though - Hawk. When Mandy and Hawk meet, sparkles fly, but Mandy is determined to fight her destiny.
I really enjoyed the Native American part of the storyline combined with the Wild West. It's not very often I read good westerns and To Tame a Wild Hawk was awesome representative of this genre. I think author did great job with Wyoming settings in historical 1870s.
I adored Hawk! He is an interested character with a lot of luggage to carry. He is tormented, but when meeting with Mandy he becomes more lively, he seems to get a new purpose in his life. When I am saying, that Hawk is tormented, then you will have to read the book, I don't want to spoil anything for you, but hawk has seen enough death for his entire lifetime and a day. he is strong, spirited, stubborn and you find an Alpha male roaring inside him which comes out quite significantly. I loved that!
Mandy is one heck of a woman. Can you imagine what it means running a ranch in Wyoming in 1870s? She has lot of guts, courage, stubbornness and feminine cleverness to survive the world of men. She does more than just survives.Read more ›

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!
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.
