Jace Bayrum has always been a loner. Concerned more with getting an adrenaline fix and making money to live on his own, Jace cares little for family ties or matters of the heart. On the other hand Glyssa Licorice, Jace’s former fling and true mate, is both loving and loyal. She is determined to track down her HeartMate and have him claim her.
After hearing that Jace has been involved in an accident, Glyssa sets out to find him, departing for the excavation site of the lost starship Lugh’s Spear. Though her goal is to help Jace and finesse him into recognizing her as his mate, the excavation itself draws her in…
Thrust by fate into working side-by-side, Jace and Glyssa’s electric connection from years before sparks once more. She intrigues him, and Jace begins to realize that a HeartMate can make a difference. And one as magnetic as Glyssa could be exactly what he has been searching for…
I have been reading Robin D’Owens Celta series since I was 18 and my mother gave me Heart Mate for my birthday.
This author is a master of her craft, Celta is one of the better made up worlds that I read about. They have mythology, religion, legends, and a caste system all their own. The way she has built the towns, country, world and civilization in this series is wonderful and I never get tired of it. Creative is not a strong enough word to describe this series.
The characters are different, vibrant, and passionate and each has their own personality, likes, dislikes and back ground. The families are amazing and I enjoy all the links between the books.
The addition of talking Fam creatures is something I never tire of either. In this book the author introduces the very first FamBird, and I thought after FamFoxes I couldn’t get more excited! I beg you Robin…a bat next! That would be truly magically. So a request from a VERY loyal fan lol.
I only had one issue with this installment of a FAVORITE series. I am tired of the love story angle I see showing up in too many romance novels… One person is in love and wants the other as their Heart Mate, while the other is afraid, anxious, against it or too immature to deal with it. This series is so great that this 1+1=2 equation is boring. What if the author wrote about a couple who loves each other and is heart mated and the conflict comes from OUTSIDE, bringing the two even closer than they were before? Oh well, just a thought. It doesn’t matter too much I guess I still gobble up her books as soon as they hit the shelves.
So four stars Heart Fortune, and thank you Robin D’Owens…your novels brighten my week.
