Wed to a wealthy older man when she was just a girl, Lahsin Yew runs away from her abusive home to find a new life. At seventeen, she's about to enter her Second Passage, when her Flair-and perhaps her HeartMate-will be revealed.

Lahsin finds sanctuary in a secret garden, where she meets Tinne Holly. Though he is her HeartMate, he cannot tell her, and her troubled past prevents her from trusting any man. Pretending to find her by chance, Tinne helps her through her Second Passage. But when the truth is revealed, can she forgive his deception, and learn to trust in her destiny?

Heart Fate - Robin D. OwensFantasy Romance; Celta, Book 7; 8/10I found this latest book in Owens' Celtan series to be slow going. I wasn't quite sure if it was me, a flaw in the book or intentional. I have come to the conclusion that it was intentional. This is a slow, gentle book without the swifter more dramatic action of some of the others in the series. Both the main characters are wounded and this book is as much, or possible more, about their healing than it is about their romance. Lahsin is only 17 but was married to a brutish older man at fourteen. As the story begins she runs away, determined to escapse and make her own life. Tinne, the hero, is a little older and, as the story opens, forced to face up to the fact that his marriage is over. The two, HeartMates although only Tinne knows this, meet at a hidden, abandoned estate where both find a sanctuary and a chance to heal. They do so slowly, neither interested in another relationship but gradually discovering a precious friendship with the other. This is a romance as well, so it isn't a spoiler to say these two end up together, but for all that it was relatively quick I didn't find it rushed. It worked well for me, that their HeartMate bond pulled them together even as they were both cautious about another relationship. And in the end it is Lahsin that makes the decision for them, simply by choosing to follow her heart. But she had to do the work first be to in a position to do that, as did Tinne. So a quieter, slower addition to the series, but one I enjoyed. I do like these books and I'm glad to hear Owens has sold several more.

Good. I like romances with one or both partners recovering from abuse - Lahsin definitely fits that pattern, and Tinne as well to some extent (not abuse, exactly, but a bad time related to his marriage). Tinne's marriage to a woman other than his HeartMate has been part of the story for several books now - I wondered what was going to happen to Genista, since she clearly didn't deserve to be cast off or killed. This end to his marriage was very rich - Genista's choice, the thorough testing of both partners, the pain both of them suffered both in the marriage and with its end. And that's just the background for the real story of this book...Lahsin's learning to trust happened awfully fast - but then, so did the dog's. The self-defense lessons were a good reason to keep them together. And the obstacles between them, unlike most of these stories, were entirely within - aside from T'Yew, and he was a minor bump back at the beginning. No class differences (or not major ones), no strong differences in Flair or age, no obsessions on either part - once they got over their internal, emotional problems they came together much more easily than most of the HeartMates we've read about. And TQ and BalmHeal Residence are being interesting, as is the dog. Not one of the best HeartMate stories, but good.

This is the second time I've read the series. I read the books out of order and am now reading them in order. The story in each novel is solid and the characters, including the Fams and Residences, are well thought out. The stories are not porn or extremely sexual, but warm and personal. Owens has done an excellent job of world building.

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.
