Title: Night Hawk
Author: Beverly Jenkins
Since Ian Vance’s wife was murdered years ago, he has hardened his heart to feel nothing. Until a beautiful criminal is placed into his care. Maggie Freeman has been on her own since she was a child. She is used to taking care of herself and getting out of situations. But when a mob comes after her she has to accept the help of a handsome bounty hunter to win her freedom.
“Why do you want to marry me?” “Because I want this adventure we’re on to continue. Because you fill my heart. Because I want you to have that garden.”
OMG I cannot tell you how much I loved this book. Maggie was the best. She is spunky, smart, and a trouble magnet. I love how she gets her revenge on the people who wronged her. Ian is the strong, silent, law enforcement agent with a troubled past. He has lost so much in his life and now he keeps everyone out. Maggie slowly breaks down the barriers he has erected and shows him how to laugh and live again. I loved their slow building relationship and how they challenged each other.
“You watch her with eyes of love.”
This is one of the best historical romances I have read in a very long time. I love Beverly Jenkins’ writing and her amazing character. I am instantly sucked into the world and the characters’ lives. There is so much emotion and feeling between the characters I can’t help but fall in love with them. Also I found out that my library has a bunch of her books so expect a lot more of her books in the future.
Overall, this was a wonderful historical romance and I totally recommend it if you enjoy historical western romances.
