Dalden, the twin brother of Shanelle from Keeper of the Heart, and the son of Tedra and Challon from Warrior’s Woman has always tried to deny his non-warrior half.
That denial is put to the test when he meets his lifemate Brittany. Brittany is a carpenter in a small town in California. Not only has she always supported herself, she has done so in a traditionally male profession. She is certainly not willing to turn into a submissive female, no matter how deeply she falls in love.
This book ties up the Ly-San-Ter family story very nicely. All family members are accounted for. We get to meet Martha again (like she would have allowed herself to be left out of the story.) We even get to see some old villains return.
Although the loose ends are all tied up, there is still enough of a story that further sequels are possible. It has been a number of years since Heart of a Warrior’s publication, but Johanna Lindsey waited a long time between books two and three.
Warrior’s Woman- 1990
Keeper of the Heart – 1993
Heart of a Warrior – 2001
So, we may not have seen the last of Martha yet!
