Heart Fortune by Robin Owens is the 12th book in her Celta series. This is such a wonderful series, and Robin continues with another fabulous book. The destined mates in Heart Fortune are Glyssa Licorice, whom we have met previously, as she is best friends with Camellia and Tiana; and Jace Bayrum, who is a loner in so many ways. Jace and Glyssa have been sexually involved awhile back, and Jace wasn’t interested in any kind of long term relationship. Glyssa, though knew Jace was her heart mate, but she wants him to come to her and accept their true relationship. Glyssa is a second level Liberian, with her family all first level librarians. After talking to her friend, Camellia, Glyssa decides to travel to where the excavation of a lost starship is going on, and where Jace is. She is going to use this to record her findings to help her become a first level Librarian, and take the same opportunity to work on Jace, and make him recognize her as his heart mate. The story focuses on the excavation, and the danger involved, as someone is trying to sabotage the site. Jace is being framed, and though Glyssa tries to defend him, he gets angry at her for what he calls interfering. Jace has always been a loner, having blamed his mother for his father’s death, and remembering how she ruled him. Jace wants nothing to do with a permanent relationship with any women who would try to tell him what to do. Glyssa has her hands full, and though they do have steamy sex, and often, she does knows that something is holding Jace back. I loved Glyssa, who was a strong heroine, well liked, very personable, and smart. She would stand by Jace, but he was too blind to see her. Personally, I did not like Jace, until closer to the end. He enjoyed his sex with Glyssa, and knew there was something more; but he steadily refused to open himself up, and in doing this, he hurt Glyssa. There were times I wanted to smack him, and for the most part, I felt Glyssa was too good for him. However, I understand Jace’s childhood issues. What I love the most about this series is the world of Celta; the ability to teleport, and the different flairs many have. Robin always has wonderful characters that come to life in her books. Most of all, I adore the Fams. If you remember from my previous reviews, the Fams are animals who become the persons familiar, and they talk telepathically to each other. In most cases, the fams are cats, but there have been many different animals. In Heart Fortune, I adored Lepid, Glyssa’s young fox fam., who was so cute, vocal, and rambunctious. Jace’s fam was Zem, a hawkcel bird, who became fast friends with Lepid. The Fams are a big part of this story, the mystery and become involved in the danger surrounding Jace and Glyssa. I won’t reveal any spoilers, other then to say this is a fun, fast and enjoyable read. Heart Fortune is a wonderful book, with a romance that was slow to build, due to Jace’s stubbornness; the wonderful Fams; a marvelous heroine in Glyssa; and a very exciting last 1/3 of the book, as the danger escalates, putting lives in jeopardy. It is also a story of friendship, family, mystery, all in the wonderful world of Celta I love this series, and Robin Owens is another one of my favorite authors that I will not miss a book.

I am always so very happy to return to Celta. This love story between Jace and Glyssa is a fun coming home to one of my most beloved  series. We have cool new fams, psi powers, and creative flairs. The romance in the book is real and touching. The action adventure and who done it is clever. We get to see old friends. This is a very nice addition to the series.  Owens books are a be tricky because the lead characters are not always likable at first.  She embeds the reader deep into their interior  and from this point of view we see clearly the flaws, shortcomings, and secret unpretty thoughts we all have.  This kind of characterization is at work in this book. Jace and Glyssa both need to grow and change. And they do. They always do in an Owens book. In the end, we feel tender about the vulnerable raw person they were and proud and happy of who they have become.  This makes for great romance reading that we can reread again and again knowling how well everything will turn out.  My only real quibble with this book is that I don't really like the way some former couples were portrayed. They didn't always ring true for  me to how I would expect them to behave and be.  I highly recommend this book if you are fan of the Celta series and if you are not I urge you to glut yourself starting with Heart Mate.

Robin Owens' Heart series always brings something unexpected. Her characters are ones you'd love to know and root for. She keeps you coming back for more and eager for the next episode about Celta's people.

Love this series and absolutely loved this book. I've already read it twice and look forward to future books in the series. Robin is a wonderful storyteller!

This book continues the adventures of people living on the planet Celta, 400+ years in the future. The use of flair (magic) is a talent many characters have evolved. And animals too have evolved to become "familiars" or "fams" who can communicate with their special humans. In this story, one of the ancient air-ships that brought colonists to this planet long ago has been found and is being excavated. Of course there are dangers and villains, and Heart-mate romance. I recommend reading the entire series in order, since many characters from previous books appear in this story. Humor, romance and exciting intrigue. What could be better?

I don't know what's happened, but I struggled through the whole book. The writing was nothing like the previous books - it was like someone else wrote it! A real disappointment.

Robin Owens books are getting harder and harder to read. The plots points can cover two pages, so she fills it will dialog between her FAMs and their owners. Its crutch used to hide the fact that her books and her characters have no where to go.... I used to love her stories. In fact by book shelf at home is filled with the first twelve 'Heart' books. But, no more... The characters and their lives are interchangeable, leaving me wanting more. And I'm afraid that Ms. Owens can no longer deliver.
