Publishers Weekly

Owens's latest entry in the Heart series (Heart Dance, etc.) is a touching tale of learning to trust again. Lahsin Burdock Yew is an underage noblewoman being abused by her brutish husband. When she comes of age, she repudiates her marriage and flees to a sanctuary where she can go through her Second Passage, a difficult and sometimes deadly ritual that will cause her magical Flair to be revealed. Meanwhile, nobleman Tinne Holly is recovering from a scandal: his wife has divorced him, making it the first divorce in noble history. Tinne knows that Lahsin is his Heartmate (his soul mate), but he is forbidden by law from telling her. Instead he goes to the sanctuary to heal his own broken heart and try to protect Lahsin from her Passage and help tend to her emotional wounds. But as they grow closer, the specter of Lahsin's ex-husband looms, threatening her freedom and their happiness. Even for readers unfamiliar with the Heartworld, Owens makes it easily accessible and full of delightful conceits such the Residences, houses with consciousnesses and personalities. (Sept.)

Wed at 14 to a brutal man, 17-year-old Lahsin Burdock Yew has felt the first signs of her Second Passage (when her specialized psi-powers will blossom and she may learn whether or not she has a HeartMate) and knows she must escape the control of both the Yew and Burdock families. She flees, repudiating her underage marriage, and finds sanctuary in the neglected legendary healing garden, the First Grove. Tinne Holly, long aware that Lahsin is his destined HeartMate, now must find her, win her trust, and keep her safe-made more difficult because he can't tell her they are linked. Set on the planet Celta amid a feudalistic, family/clan-based society where telepathic animals and people with strong psychic powers are the norm, this emotionally rich tale blends paranormal abilities, family dynamics, and politics; adds a serious dash of violence; and dusts it all with humor and whimsy. The intriguing result is the seventh in Owens's popular Celta series. Owens (Heart Dance) lives in the Denver area.

I absolutely love the Heart Series, and Heart Fate is my favorite so far. What's great about the series is almost every character makes an appearance in each book, so you've grown with them from the beginning. This book, Heart Fate, is Tinne's story, and it's a good one. At this point in the series, the reader should be very familiar with the Celta world, HeartMates, Fam's and Residence's, but this book took all of them to a new level. I love that the Residence's have more of a voice and character in this book, and TQ made me laugh out loud throughout the story. A very creative and unique world. Merry Meet!

Yes, this series is difficult to take seriously, won't make you think too hard, but darn it all, it's just plain F-U-N reading. Haven't been disappointed yet with any of the Heart series of books!

I felt like this was a decent story, a nice work of fiction (if not moderately confusing in it's prose) but it was lacking. The magic was so-so and the first 40 or so pages are spent getting to know the characters individually for the trials of their previous marriages and whirlwind divorces. Some of the characters were likable, but that majority were humdrum and the emotions were overly dramatic (houses have feelings - mostly depressed or ecstatic) and animals are sarcastic (and talk in your mind)with magic all their own. Families ferry their children around and into marriage at young ages and even as they mature they treat them with kid gloves. Men are openly emotional (almost to the point of pathetic). And let's face it, a main component of a romance novel is the steamy sex scenes that could smelt iron - this lacked for those and the ones included were short, non-descript, and boring. I liked that the characters cared for one another, but this book was like a low-rent soap opera. Save yourself the cash and buy something else. Heck, even a Starbucks in the BN would be money better spent than this.
