The stigma of his heritage has made Hawk accustomed to ridicule in Comanche County. Shunned by nearly everyone in town, he finds comfort in the one person who always accepted him: the beautiful Abby McCormick. But even as their childhood friendship blossoms into a passion neither of them can keep at bay, they know that Abby's father will never accept their love. Then, after an evening with Abby, Hawk is ambushed and beaten. Believing him dead, Abby spends four years mourning him. But when, against all odds, he storms back into her life, her hope for a love that never had a chance to truly be realized is restored. Hawk has returned for more than Abby, though. With his sights set on revenge, will he miss his second chance at the love that is right before his eyes?
Strong suffering hero who has to choose what is more important revenge or love. Strong heroine not afraid to stand up for her man. Ms Hudson writes wonderful books she keeps you entranced enertained and turning pages. I will buy anything with her name on it. Her historical Western romances are my favs.
