Starting a riveting series steeped in paranormal events and passionate love, heroes to ‘die for’ and heroines that are strong physically as well as mentally. Ms. Clark has written a love story that will automatically earn a place on reader-fans keeper shelves.

Charity Starr’s background, her career, is steeped in Chemistry and Astrophysics. But she also has a talent she doesn’t like to have others know about. Born physic, she has spent years training herself to shut away those special abilities that set her apart from others. She’s been successful with not having to deal with her psychic “side” --- until an unexpected attack puts her into contact with Hawk Adams. Nothing will ever be the same for her again. From the beginning, Charity will battle with her inner demons and try hard to decide if the change in her life is what she wants --- or has to avoid at all costs.

Hawk Adams is a Security Specialist, an ex-mercenary, with dark memories that haunt him awake or asleep. The last thing he wants is to get involved with Charity Starr. But she needs him, whether she wants to admit it or not. And Hawk is just as reluctant to confront the feelings and emotions Charity has brought out in him. He’s more than willing to protect her from her ruthless enemies but all the more determined to protect himself from getting involved with her.

Charity’s research has placed her in grave danger and the enemy will stop at nothing to get the scientific work she has. Several attempts on her life leave her feeling vulnerable yet even more determined to “take care of herself”. She and Hawk clash on the issue many times while also fighting the growing love and passion sizzling between them. Meeting Hawk has released Charity’s dormant emphatic abilities, stressing the undeniable bond that is already being formed between them.

Though a part of a series, Tears Of The Hawk can be read alone. But this reviewer recommends you get books 2, 3, and 4 --- you won’t regret it! Ms. Clark’s stories read fast paced, full of intrigue, love that heats up the pages, and are steeped in paranormal events that keeps a reader devouring the book --- wishing it were just a bit longer than the 263 pages! Look for Book #2 A Breath Of Heather(Nov 2002), Book #3 A Touch Of Fire (Dec. 2002), Book #4 Deserts Of The Heart (Jan. 2003). Highly recommended!
