Heart Fortune by Robin D. Owens
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Jace Bayrum has always been a loner. Concerned more with getting an adrenaline fix and making money to live on his own, Jace cares little for family ties or matters of the heart. On the other hand Glyssa Licorice, Jace’s former fling and true mate, is both loving and loyal. She is determined to track down her HeartMate and have him claim her. After hearing that Jace has been involved in an accident, Glyssa sets out to find him, departing for the excavation site of the lost starship Lugh’s Spear. Though her goal is to help Jace and finesse him into recognizing her as his mate, the excavation itself draws her in… Thrust by fate into working side-by-side, Jace and Glyssa’s electric connection from years before sparks once more. She intrigues him, and Jace begins to realize that a HeartMate can make a difference. And one as magnetic as Glyssa could be exactly what he has been searching for…
There were several things I liked about this book. Glyssa is a librarian and that is the first time I remember her family appearing in any of the books. I love the Fams. Glyssa’s is a young fox and Jace’s is a type of hawk. Several characters from previous books appear, either in minor or major roles. All of these positives are overshadowed by Jace not wanting to HeartMate with Glyssa. He doesn’t believe in love and he doesn’t want to lose his freedom. Although I cannot imagine ever giving up on this series, I much prefer the earlier books. The couples were both more likable then. View all my reviews
