Laura Hawks - Paranormal Romance Author
When her family was murdered, Clarissa found her life altered. As the new guardian for a very powerful gem that could change the very fate of the Earth and its inhabitants should it be lost, she willingly accepted the responsibilities to keep it safe.
A demon named Xon was after the abilities the gem would afford him should he get his hands on it.
Azamel protected the world from demon kind. A demon himself, he was appointed judge and if need be, executioner to protect the various races that roamed the Earth. Now he had to hunt Xon and prevent him from obtaining a stone that could give him the edge he would need to rule, but to do this Azamel would have to work with a young wolf who had a chip on her shoulder. Could he succeed in time to save both of them... before it was too late? Or would Clarissa's mistrust doom them all?

Review and Interview:
5.0 out of 5 stars Demon's Kiss, November 21, 2012
5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully Written, November 17, 2012
Very seldom does a book make me feel the emotions of a character. Laura Hawks pulls it off with ease. The Guardian is not unsusceptible to issues of trust, loyalty, passion, or a myriad of other emptions. Laura does such a wonderful job describing the characters as they encounter their emotions that help you relate to them even at this deep level.
Demon's Kiss will leave you attached to the characters long after the story is finished and anxious for a sequel so that you can learn even more about the friends you have just made.
5.0 out of 5 stars Demon's Kiss, November 16, 2012

5.0 out of 5 stars First Paranormal Romance - not the last!, November 12, 2012
Hope there is a sequel soon!
5.0 out of 5 stars Demons Kiss a thrilling book !!, October 26, 2012
If you like paranormal romance, this is a very enjoyable read. The characters interact well, and the store moves, there is nothing that lags in it. As with most first books, there are some things that as Ms. Hawks becomes a more experienced writer, and works with her editor more, will be fixed. But over all, well done for a first book!
Demon's Kiss is a highly enjoyable read. You will feel a strong connection to the heroine and sympathize with her struggles.
With that being said, I struggled with other details of the story. I am not one to critique a book on editing, grammar issues. Content is the most important aspect of a story in my option. But...
I did have trouble with the word choice in this book. It is very difficult to read a passionate love scene when words like mammary glands and phalanges are used. These words do not elicited the correct response in the reader. The word appendage is used multiple times throughout the story, as well, in reference to a tender caress. Appendage appears to be much more phallic than a loving stroke to me.
I just found myself skipping sections of the story due to this issue and I am generally able to read just about anything.
Again, the content of this book is a highly enjoyable story as long as you are able to get passed some of the word choices the author has made.
If given the chance to read this story again, I most definitely would.
