Hawke's Pride
Author: Norah Hess
From the moment she laid eyes on him, Rue thought Hawke Masters the most insufferable man she'd ever met.

i almost dont want to give it up. this story, like many of hess's others is about the guy treating the girl badly at first unil hes gets a good look at her and falls in love. of course, at this point she wants nothing to do with him. i can honestly say this book made me laugh as the girl leads the guy around in circles.

Growing up with a prostitute mother and a lazy, good-for-nothing, lecherous stepfather, Rue had never known true happiness for more than a fleeting moment. Disgusted with the long line of men passing through her mother's bedroom, Rue wants nothing to do with them. Passing through town on his way home, Hawke Masters finds himself repelled by the dirty-faced, skinny, sharp-tongued girl he assumes is a whore like her mother. Rue's stepfather, seeing a chance to get rid of the girl and make a buck in the process, offers to sell her to Hawke. Hawke has no intention of doing so, until Rue's grandfather, hoping this will be the opportunity for Rue to escape her miserable life, forces the two to undergo a shotgun wedding.
