Fire Hawk

Fire Hawk
Justine Davis

She'll become the warrior's woman to save her people.

In a time of legends, wizards, mists, and magic, the Hawk clan's ancient spell of protection surrounding their secluded and peaceful forest is weakening. When a vicious warlord threatens the clan's existence, their only hope lies in finding a great warrior with the skills to save them. The task falls to Jenna, but convincing a legendary warrior who has buried his sword to save her people will cost her everything. 

Kane has a past filled with betrayal and a prophecy that warns him taking up the sword again will mean his death. Despite the danger, he's unable to completely refuse Jenna's plea for help. He agrees to train her in the arts of war in return for her innocence. All too late he realizes he's made a fool's bargain; he wants much more than her body. She owns his soul, and that may cost him his life.

I really wanted to like this book...but I really didn't.  It started off so well, heroine wants to save her people and will risk anything to do so.  She finds what she is looking for and risks it all for her clan.  The characters were well developed, but there comes to a point where they are over developed.  The story dragged and instead of dialogues you got character thoughts for 3 pages!  Half the time it was the same thoughts you read 7 pages before!  I got to the point where I skipped and glanced at pages.  I know inner thoughts are important, but there comes a time when you just got to stop them.  There was a good heartfelt ending.  I would say the price for the book was not worth it.

Received a copy for a honest review.
