“You have something that belongs to me–my heart…”

Hired to locate a runaway wife, he’d blown into her life like a hawk riding the wind, but when Kane Hawthorne found Elizabeth Lawson, he wanted her for his own!

Could she cherish her savage hero until his own ghosts were silenced?

I’ve taken care of myself for so long, I wouldn’t know what to do with it.”

A sad smile lit the corners of her mouth. “That’s right, the man with the empty soul.” She held his gaze, her eyes burning with a fierce light deep within. “If there was ever a soul worth caring about, it is yours, Eyes of the Hawk.”

He could swear he heard his control snap as he reached out and drew her to him. “Stop me.”

“No.” And she lifted her mouth to his…
