Publisher's Summary

To Hawk O'Toole, she was a pawn in a desperate gamble to help his people. To Miranda Price, he was a stranger who'd done the unthinkable: kidnapped her and her young son off a train full of sight-seeing vacationers. Now, held hostage on a distant reservation for reasons she cannot at first fathom, Miranda finds herself battling a captor who is by turns harsh and tender, mysteriously aloof and dangerously seductive.

Hawk had assumed that Miranda Price, the beautiful ex-wife of Representative Price, would be selfish and immoral as the tabloids suggested. Instead, she seems genuinely afraid for her son's life - and willing to risk her own to keep him safe. But committed to a fight he didn't start, Hawk knows he can't afford to feel anything but contempt for his prisoner. To force the government to reopen the Lone Puma Mine, he must keep Miranda at arm's length, must remember that she is his enemy - even when she ignites his deepest desires.

Slowly, Miranda beings to learn what drives this brooding, solitary man, to discover the truth about his tragic past. But it will take a shocking revelation to finally force her to face her own past and the woman she's become, and to ask herself: Is it freedom she really wants...or a chance to stay with Hawk forever?

Worst Disappointing

This is the worst book of Sandra Brown’s I’ve ever read. They are usually intriguing and believable this one is neither. The performance was horrible the music seemed like a comedy drama series on a poorly rated TV show; I was surprised they didn’t have canned laughter in the background.

Hawk O'Toole's Hostage

I read this story many years ago , and enjoyed . Good characters. Easy reading .This Audible book was beyond horrible, the music over the top of the words---- what in hell was that ??????? The music was nice ,but not over the story. The readers voice was to soft to hear most. of the time. You wrecked I good story.

1960s made-for-television?

This review is for the audible version.

The story was obviously abridged and when combined with music, it reminded me of the old westerns made for television.

Morgan Fairchild's voice and deliverance were excellent and I would've given the narration five stars if it were not for the inserted music that sometimes drowned out Ms. Fairchild's voice.

I have only the audible version format on which to base my review; therefore I'm only giving the story two stars. Perhaps if it had not been abridged, I might have better understood the actions of the characters. As it is I have to wonder if the heroine doesn't suffer from Stockholm syndrome.

Nothing too profound but a nice light read

Would you try another book from Sandra Brown and/or Morgan Fairchild?

I have listened to another book narrated by Morgan Fairchild in the past but I couldn't find it, nor do I remember the title. I would try another book from Sandra Brown and I do enjoy Morgan Fairchild's distinct voice.

Get the unabridged version

I read this story years ago and fell in love with it. However this version doesn't do justice the book, too much of the story has been left out. I recommend the unabridged version for a good love story with honor in its characters.
