Captured by Hawk - CLOUDY SKIES #2
Publisher: Dorothy Callahan
In one family, generation after generation relied on the magic of one Norse ring to lead them to their destined match. For those who heed its advice, only joy and health follow. But the ring has also been known to foreshadow impending doom. Ignore its truth at your peril….
One particular case has caught the attention of Officer Skyhawk Werner, along with the rest of Syracuse: The Man-handler, a vigilante who assaults innocent men under the guise of protecting women from a supposed attack. But as a policeman, Hawk knows the difference between protection and assault, and this vigilante is no hero. Despite being a rookie, Hawk has every intention of solving this case, a crucial step to becoming a detective. The fact his family's magic heirloom ring warns him of the danger only further incites him to solve it. He can't wait to slap the cuffs on this lawless creature and drag him to justice. After all, Hawk knows what it's like living with someone hiding a secret identity, and he doesn't want anyone suffering from the tortured past he had. One major problem: his captain's orphaned sister wants to help, and his ring seems to think this forbidden woman is his match.
Watching her bar customers disappear one by one has alerted Gloria Reyes to a dangerous situation: women are being kidnapped. It's not just from her bar, either—other bartenders have noticed the same thing. Working in an off-duty cop bar should mean Gloria gets to catch snippets of shop talk, but she's not learning fast enough to help. Her self-defense classes provide the security she needs to investigate—despite her cop brother's protestations—but nearly a year later, no one has stopped the abductions, or recovered the missing women.
Somebody's got to do something.
The problem is, that gorgeous playboy Officer Hawk Werner seems bent on solving the case, automatically making him her enemy.
The last thing Gloria needs is her secret crush learning the truth.
