Introducing Author Laura Hawks


Author Bio:
Ms. 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.

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.
A sequel to Demon's Kiss, entitled Demon's Dream available as is the final part to the Demon Saga Trilogy Demon's Web. 
She has 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. This series called The Spirit Walkers Saga begins with Shifter's Hope, now available.
With several other projects of stories, she finds barely enough time to go out and meet the readers at various conventions around the country, but that is one of her favorite things to do. She finds talking to the readers the best part of her day. 

Books By Laura Hawks: 


The Demon Trilogy: Demon's Kiss:
 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?


Demon's Dream:
Clarissa has a destiny to protect a stone so powerful, it will destroy the world if it falls into the wrong hands. Her one source of strength is Azamel, demon judge and executioner. However, Azamel has secrets of his own. Secrets and a past which could alter Clarissa's destiny and even take her life. Hunted by Azamel's ancient enemies, thrown into an alternate reality meant to separate the guardian from the Gem of Avarice, Clarissa has a battle on her hands to keep the stone safe, even if it means sacrificing everything else she might dream of, including happiness with Azamel.









Demon's Web:
Mel and Clarissa built the perfect life after the destruction of the Gem of Avarice. However, they quickly learn perfect lives are easily disrupted, especially by their antagonists. 
When their daughter, Trinity is kidnapped and their son, Logan moves away shortly after, Clarissa feels like her world is falling apart… once again. 
 It isn’t until startling revelations from Logan and his girlfriend are unveiled that Clarissa and Mel are led down an unexpected path involving the mysteries of the Gem. In time, their enemies of the past are trapped within their own tangled webs of deceit. 
 While Mel handles his daughter’s kidnapper, Clarissa alone, will have to risk everything including her very own life, in order to protect her children. 


Shifter's 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?




The Ghost and the Grimoire:
Confederate Soldier Elliott Stone made numerous mistakes in his life. When he betrayed his comrades, he was tortured and murdered. 
For over a century and a half , his only refuge has been the sanctuary of the house built where he took his last breath. 
He was content in his solitude...until she came and disrupted his whole world. 
Daniella Yankovich inherited the beautiful Colonial Home. It came at a time she needed tranquility and peace from the N.Y. rat race. Little did she know her fortuitous blessing came with a cantankerous spirit. 
Now a Civil War of wills in the house has begun. Will the North prevail or will the South rise again?

Abandoned & Broken

Left alone to raise a family, widower Darcy Kyle’s life has spiraled out of control. When secrets about her husband’s past emerge, Darcy is forced to confront the fact her husband’s fatal accident may, in fact, have been deliberate. Forced to sell her soul to the Devil himself, Darcy must uncover the truth of her husband’s accident…before it’s too late.

Betrayed & Bitter

Cast into Hell, Raze has given his life as President of the Heaven’s Rejects MC, but what good is it when he can’t protect the people he cares about? His brother’s death, his wife’s betrayal… it’s too much for a mere mortal to handle. Luckily for Raze, he is the ruler of this Hell on Earth. But even the Devil has a weakness, and when Darcy Kyle sticks her nose in the club’s business he finds himself questioning his loyalty to his brother’s memory.

How can the Devil resist an angel bathed in the ashes of the fallen?

Heaven Sent (Heaven's Rejects #1)


Bloody…broken…barely surviving…

Danae “Dani” Espinoza is on the run and desperate to escape the demons of her past. Plans to hide out in a sleepy Los Angeles suburb turn into a pipe dream as she is drawn into the secret filled world of the local motorcycle club. Dani soon learns that her secrets and lies are nothing compared to those kept behind the clubhouse doors. Trying to avoid the suspicious Vice President, she must keep a low profile in order to survive. The trouble is he has other ideas. 

Bike…babes…and booze…

Tyler "Hero" Tobias has simple needs. Being the Heaven's Rejects MC Vice President, he has all three at his disposal. But he has his own ghosts that keep him awake at night. When Dani arrives at the clubhouse, he knows he should stay away but there is something about her dark beauty and the mystery that surrounds her that makes him burn. There are secrets in her eyes and lies in her smile and he knows he should put his club first, but Hero’s heart and loyalty are about to be tested. 

Can an angel with blood-covered wings and the devil himself resist temptation or will they risk bringing hellfire down on everything that they love?

The Imperial Arm by Beth Mikell BLOG TOUR






Blog Tour:
The Imperial Arm
(Knights of the Imperial Elite #1)
by
Beth Mikell
Jan 30th - Feb 6th




Darrius of Blackstone, emissary to King Henry III, is sent to northern England to snuff out an enemy of the crown. Everything spirals out of control when the scales of justice tip and the controlled warrior unleashes his heart upon a woman suffering from neglect. He knows the risks, but he needs her light in his dark world.

Abused by her power-greedy father all her life, Lady Brenna of Carthmore despises her pawn like status and the arranged marriage hanging over her head. Yet her new husband confounds her at every turn. She stumbles upon his secret, tipping the scale of the heart until betrayal vilifies a new day.

The Imperial Arm and his Elite are confronted by all sides of misery and everyone must reveal their deepest soul before blood runs.









Beth Mikell is an avid reader and writer across many genres. She’s a native Floridian, yet at thirteen, her family moved to Alabama and as the years turned into several, she traveled to many countries such as Brazil, Turkey, and Iran. When it comes to writing, Beth likes to weave tales about love, loss, and rebuilding hope, either in fiction or poetry. She finds the most challenging part of writing to be the end—saying goodbye is never easy.
