: By the way, here's a question for ya:
: Do you think, if Cora hadn't revealed her feelings to him in the glade, he would have pursued her anyway?
I too think this is a great discussion. My take on the whole thing is that when Hawk first saw Cora I really don't think he thought too much about her at all other than thinking she is some spoiled, rich woman who had no business being out in the woods.
I think he gained a measure of respect for her when she stood up to him at the Cameron's cabin and gave him a piece of her mind.
While I still feel that he felt she was too "citified" to be in the forest, I think that he thought she was pretty gutsy to say what she said to him without knowing jack about him.
Then in the glade when she came over to ask about the Cameron's and to basically apologize when she found out the reason for not burying them, I believe, that Hawk started feeling that maybe he had misjudge her and that she was someone he should get to know alot better. I think the attraction started there especially since both of them were so open to each other with revealing their feelings etc. I also believe that the look Hawk gave her after she turned over was not so much lust as it was respect and the beginning of deep affection. That look said to me "wow, you really threw me for a loop! Here I was thinking you are just some spoiled girl from London who doesn't know or care about what's going on here and yet I realize that you are one caring, gutsy, intelligent, beautiful woman and I would be crazy not to get to know you better".
As far as your question goes, Myrrh, while I believe that the basic attraction was there, I don't think that Hawk would have purused her had she not revealed her feelings in the glade. I think he probably would have just gone on his separate way after delivering her to daddy.. what do you think? Lynne
