Lahsin Burdock Yewís escape from her
abusive husband does not go as she plans it to. Instead of
sneaking out of the Yew residence and disappearing into the
night, her powers Flair and she disables ALL of the
protection shields and shatters all the windows in the
house. Now she has to hide so no one can find her and take
her back. A guard she literally stumbles into takes pity on
her and tells her how to find FirstGrove. Itís a sanctuary
for those who need to hide. Stumbling around in the night,
Lahsin finds a door in a wall and gets inside.
Tinne Holly Knows his marriage is in
danger. His wife lost their child due to his parents
breaking an Honor Bond. The consequences were devastating
and now Genista wants a divorce. She asks him to take the
seven bonding tests and agree to a divorce. The scandal
could ruin both their families but he cannot ask her to stay
in a marriage she doesnít want. It would only hurt her to
stay around and watch when Tinne finally claims his
HeartMate. Itís better that they each have a fresh start.
Lahsin is Tinneís HeartMate but itís
against the law for him to tell her. The bond has to grow
naturally. And it does. With his cousinís help, Tinne tracks
Lahsin to FirstGrove and because Tinne needs to heal, the
garden lets him in. Together the two of them heal and a bond
begins to grow. But as Lahsinís Second Passage progresses
she declares that she needs no man in her life even as Tinne
helps her through the worst of her passage.
Will the call of her HeartMate be
strong enough to bring Lahsin and Tinne together?
The world and the characters crafted
for the Celta novels is absolutely magnificent. The world is
real and the characters are so strong you can get pulled in
and never want to leave. Tinne and Lahsin have such pain to
deal with that my stomach twisted and I cried for Tinne
because somebody had to. There are only a few science
fiction/fantasy type books that I really enjoy and Heart
Fate is definitely one of them.
