Some recent reads and re-reads of Robin D. Owens books...
I recently read Heart Search (Celta Heartmates, Bk 10) by Robin D. Owens. Then I re-read chunks and pieces of the nine preceding novels in the series (some more than others). But that wasn't quite all. So I re-read Heart Search for the second time in a matter of a couple weeks. Then I signed up for the Amazon Prime trial so I could get Heart Secret (Celta Heartmates, Bk 11) and the newly released Heart Fortune (Celta Heartmates, Bk 12) with free two-day shipping. I read both, and then re-read parts of both immediately after.
Anyway, about the stories.
I had forgotten how things left off with Laev and it was interesting to see in Heart Search that time was the necessary ingredient to make things work out. I think that's part of why I got behind with the series. The not knowing.
For Heart Secret, man, Primross was STUBORN. But I still enjoyed the story. Even though I could have knocked him over the head a time or two. And TQ (the house) is really coming into its own!
Heart Fortune's story was a little disappointing for me. I still enjoyed it, but... Anyway, it was hard to focus on that because this is a future where librarianship is a magical power! I mean really, is that not awesome or what? But good thing I'm not part of the Licorice family because I don't know if I could have stood the pressure!
Anyway, I really love the Celta HeartMate series. Can't you tell? But now I have to wait until next August or so for the next full length novel. I will read the short stories in Heart and Swords soon. And I might start her Mystic Circle (3 books never read) sometime soon. I own the first and requested the library purchase the second and third.
