Overview

On the faraway planet Celta, there are some things you can never tell—until someone discovers your Heart Secret…

When a virulent disease killed the woman he loved and her baby, Garrett Primross was left alive, a reluctant survivor. Now, as a private eye, he strives to banish the memories of his past and rebuild his life. The Healers of Celta have something else in mind: Discover why he survived.

He is monitored by Healer Artemisia Panax—his HeartMate, a love he never pursued. Still mourning his loss, he refuses to acknowledge her. Since her family was publicly disgraced, she's used to such treatment. She wants nothing more than to guard her livelihood and protect the secrets she's sworn to keep.

Thrown together by duty, Garrett and Artemisia find the body of the last Black Magic Cultist who ruined her family. Suspicion flares, but they have little choice but to investigate the crime together. When their own lives are placed in danger, they realize that denying their HeartMates is only denying their own future.

In this latest tale from the planet Celta, Garrett is a private investigator who has his own form of Baker Street irregulars with his feral Fam informants. His investigating duties are put on hold when he agrees to be exposed to the Iasc sickness in order to help provide a cure for it. The last time this horrible disease appeared in a town on Celta, only Garrett managed to survive. Surviving a second time is not guaranteed. As fate would have it, his HeartMate Artemisia has volunteered to be the sole Healer who will take care of him during this hazardous medical experiment. Garrett doesn't want to have anything to do with Artemisia. He lost his lover in the last epidemic and he doesn't want to go through the heartache of losing another woman he might love, especially a HeartMate. Not only does he have to fight the disease but also his attraction to Artemisia. Artemisia doesn't understand why Garrett rejects their connection. But when a murder occurs that links Artemisia and her family to a murderous cult from their past (the scandal cost them their standing among the Noble families), it's Garrett and his band of feral Fams who can save the day. If the disease and the murderer don't kill him first. Fans of this series will enjoy the characters' interactions with sentient houses, the numerous Fams, plus an interesting scene of what couple's counseling is like on this delightful world. And, of course, the romance between Garrett and Artemisia.

The heart series is by far my favorite series ever. I love how it makes me feel like I am part of their world.

It began pretty good. Showed some potential then just kinda fizzed out. The one danger/hero scene(the ones we love sooo much) was mediocre at best. Sad I love this series but this one left me without a fix.

On the planet Celta, psychically gifted earth colonists carved their own placThom this mysterious planet. Their psychic gifts grow, but the germs and native plants can be dangerous to humans. Garrett Primross knows it well. He was the only survivor of a disease that killed everyone in his village, including his childhood sweetheart. The disease is back, and the healers need him to not only donate his blood to help a sick child fight the disease, but also to allow himself to be reinfected for study. Robin Owens' fast moving plot about sympathetic characters you come to love and villains you come to hate will keep you reading into the night! Highly recommended!
