Raven Needs Hope


Shy and timid Hope Landers is praying not to be discovered as she runs from an abusive relationship. She doesn’t realize the man who is about to enter her life keeps a secret far worse than she can imagine. This secret will dispel every belief she has ever held and could ultimately end her life.

Raven Stillwater, an Ojibwa Native condemned to death by his tribe, has remained close to his ancestral home. Trying against all odds that he will find a way to clear his name and thereby lift his sentence. Then he sees Hope and realizes he has an opportunity to correct a mistake he made years ago by letting her walk away. He would follow her anywhere even if it means leaving the protection of the only home he has known for centuries. However in order to be with her, this woman who has occupied his every waking thought and dreams, he will have put her directly into the cross hairs of his tribe eliminating not only himself but Hope as well. Can they survive the secret the tribe will kill to protect?

Shifter's Hope by Laura Hawks is a book I normally wouldn't read, because I don't read paranormal romance. However, I do live in Chippewa country, in fact, grew up in a town of the same name, so I was really interested in reading this book. For a paranormal romance it really held my interest to see how Raven and Hope would turn out. There was a lot of history of the Chippewa tribes in the Michigan area and I found that there were times when there was too much history in the book and it was distracting to the point I wanted to just flip past the pages to get back to the romance. There was also a lot of sex and language in the story that was graphic in my opinion, but many wouldn't think so. I'm just putting that out there because I normally don't review books that have excessive language or sex in them. However, I did finish the book and the ending made me smile with the wonderful way the book ended. When I put it altogether I really enjoyed the romance between Raven and Hope and learning more about the Chippewa tribe.

I give Shifter's Hope....... 4 cups of angelic hope coffee!

 Laura  Hawks has always been interested in writing in some form or other.   A few years back, she was involved with and then ran a Star Trek Interactive Writing Group which was successful for a number of years. Yes, she is a trekker and proud of it.
She has directed tours around the country and continues to do so to pay the bills.  Maybe one day, she can travel for fun and let the books she writes pay the bills instead. She can only hope.
Then a few years back, she received her Master’s Degree in Ancient Civilizations, Native American History and United States History.

It was at this time she got involved in role playing on FaceBook, which gave her ample opportunities to grow and hone her writing ability.
Taking the leap forward, she decided to try her hand at writing a novel.  That novel is entitled Demon’s Kiss.
Shortly after, she was published as part of an anthology called Fairly Freaky Fairytales. Her contribution is entitled Snow White and the Seven Cannibals.
A sequel to Demon’s Kiss, entitled Demon’s Dream is now on sale. The third and final portion of the Demon Saga will be out in the near future. 
She has just published the first book in a new series.. . entitled the Spirit Walkers Saga. The first book in that series is entitled Shifter's Hope. It is now available. 
She is currently working on a Confederate Ghost Story as well as a couple of other projects for soon to be released novels, including a new series that utilizes Native American history and mythos incorporated into her paranormal world.  She also submitted a screenplay for a Horror Movie with hopes they will start filming soon.   The Movie will be entitled the Vengeance Tree.
