Publisher's Summary

Best-selling author Monica McCarty captivates millions with swashbuckling Scottish romances like The Hawk. Brilliant seafarer Erik MacSorley has never encountered a gale he couldn’t weather or a woman he couldn’t win—until he drags a wet, halfclothed “nursemaid” from the Irish Sea. But Ellie’s ordinary dress belies the truth that she’s the spirited daughter of an Irish nobleman. And her determination to resist Erik’s charms is a challenge he can’t resist.

After "Braveheart": The Saga Continues (Book 2)

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Monica McCarty's main characters actually did live in the times she has so thoroughly brought to life. Little is known of the actual details of their lives, of course, but she has masterfully woven the history into her stories and her characters' personas. Here is the story of Erik MacSorley, one member of Robert, the Bruce's elite secret army. Half Viking, half Gael, and entirely too charming and handsome, Hawk is one of the most renowned seafarers of his time. His highly secret mission gets off to a very unpropitious start when a young woman, celebrating an ancient pagan ritual, accidently stumbles upon his meeting with the Irish mercenaries he is recruiting to Robert's army. When he does the only thing he can to save her, it very nearly destroys both him and his mission.


What other book might you compare The Hawk to and why?

First read: The Chief by Monica McCarty to get the foundation.


What about Robert McNab???s performance did you like?

His performance is improving, though he is not a master with the Irish and Scots brogues.


Was there a moment in the book that particular moved you?

Yes -- near the end when Erik truly realizes the misery he has cast upon his own future.

I tried to listen....

but I can't get past the narration! I think the story might be good...but I will probably never know since I just can't listen to it anymore. I'm almost half way...but it hurts my ears! The hero sounds like a 85 year-old reading his lines from a prompter (and is reading-1-word-at-a-time-in-stacato)
