"T'Ash's cat and Familiar steals every scene he's in"
Rand T'Ash, Greatlord of the Family Ash, is finally about
to meet his HeartMate. He knows this from the divination
dice he has thrown. They say clearly "Today you will meet
your HeartMate." Thrilled beyond measure, T'Ash retrieves
the Heartgift he'd prepared for this day, a necklace of
stunning erotic power. His lady will see it, put it on, and
presto; he will claim her as his own. He starts to plan
their honeymoon --- amongst other things.
Now, anytime a man starts planning the wedding prior to
meeting the woman, you just know things aren't going to be
as easy he expects. Danith Mallow wants a quiet peaceful
life, not a tall, dark, and handsome man who glowers at her
from the corner of his store, or a necklace that makes her
feel all hot and bothered. And poor T'Ash is about a subtle
as a box of psychically charged rocks. At one point he's up
all night making a knife, so he sends her presents every
hour, waking her up every time something arrives.
Fortunately, this works in T'Ash's favor, since Danith
arrives the next morning with the jewelry he's sent her, to
tell him to get lost. This gives T'Ash the opportunity to
be alone with her and convince her that she also
has "flair", psychic power.
So, will Danith come to terms with her flair? Will T'Ash
overcome his fear of sharing all of his past with his lady,
earning her trust? Will the Heartbond be sealed between
them, making these two truly HeartMates?
And will Zanth, T'Ash's cat and Familiar, a wonderful
character who steals every scene he's in, finally get
enough "cocoa mousse"? That's the story of HeartMate, a
wonderful new book by Robin D. Owens.
