Sixth in the bestselling futuristic romance series-from a RITA Award-winning author. First time in trade!

DuFleur Thyme is a scientist who's secretly experimenting with time. She'll allow no distractions from her work-not even from a HeartMate. Meanwhile, Saille T'Willow has sent his HeartGift out into the world in hopes of finding his HeartMate, who, it turns out, is DuFleur. Still,

DuFleur wants nothing to do with Saille, especially when she discovers that it was his grandmother who brought about her father's ruin. Unfortunately, her body can't help but submit to the passion he stirs in her. But when a scandal threatens Saille's position as head of the family, will DuFleur stand by his side?

 

Heart Dance is book 6 in Owens’ HeartMates series. I liked this book, but not as well as some of her others. You can see my reviews for the rest of the books here.

I loved Saille. I thought he was a strong, honorable man. He really stepped up and tried to fix all the problems left by his predecessor. I think I just liked him as a person. He was kind and loving, but also strong enough to stand up for himself and those he loved.

While I understood Dufleur’s reasons for pushing Saille away, I found it became tedious after awhile. It was obvious, even to her, that he loved her, yet she refused to trust him. That became very frustrating. I liked her on her own, I just didn’t care for her with Saille. I did like watching her grow as the story progressed though.

I liked both Myx, Saille’s Fam, and Fairyfoot, Dufleur’s Fam. I especially liked that Fairyfoot had to be taught some manners. She was far too smug for my tastes in the beginning.

3.5 out of 5
