"engaging enough to read it in a solid shot"

HEARTMATE by Robin Owens was spectacular! Few books are engaging enough to make me forego everything long enough to read it in a solid shot (about 7 or 8 hours punctuated by a few distractions).

The characters are wonderful. I could have fallen in love with Rand despite his faults even before he confessed himself to his heartmate, and Zanth (Rand's fam) is one of the best characters in the book. The love scenes are quick but hot, and the storyline was interesting, though there were a few questions I'd love to see answered.

Maybe they will be when she writes more books on Celta. I would love to see a story about Zanth and the Holly hunting cat that incorporates the Holly men falling for women, and I would love to know more about Rand's youth and the bond Holm and Rand formed in Downwind. Excellent book and a definite keeper!

But one look at T'Ash tells her that he's going to make her life quite difficult. She knows he is noble, powerful and dangerous. Not for her. Then there's the second prophecy: A woman surrounded by blasers, in peril...
