Heart Search : A Celta Novel
Noble Laev T'Hawthorne must rebuild his life after marrying a woman he believed was his HeartMate, only to fall victim to her greed. Abandoned at fifteen, Camellia Darjeeling values her independence above all-even as her father and uncle emotionally scourge her and extort money. For Camellia, trusting men, even her HeartMate, is too risky. When Laev and Camellia meet, they refuse to acknowledge that they are true HeartMates. But their destiny cannot be avoided...

Our customer reviews
I love, love, LOVE the Celta world and have read and always would read anything Robin D. Owens ever writes in this series, but... The writing itself was really uninspired, trite, repetitive (to the point that I was truly annoyed with the crappy editor who let the book out in this condition) and the hero and the heroine are a couple of stereotypes. Which is not to say that I didn't read and enjoy the story. After all, there's Heart Mates pull and agony, evil relatives, dastardly villains etc, etc... All would have made for a good, fun read if not for the jarringly bad writing. Thank god that the world of Celta itself holds the interest or I think this series would have fizzled out ages ago. With each new novel in the series Owens expands on the everyday lifestyle, the place is getting more real and vivid and draws me back - despite the trite plots and unnecessary recaps (as if you're reading a serial novel and might have forgoten last week's happenings!?). Any way, despite my ranting, I'd definitely buy the next book too. But maybe I'd get the e-book version. Or wait for the regular paperback rather then getting it as soon as released. It's a slippery slope, which ever way...show moreby Dela
This is the 10th novel in the Heart Series. It is set 15 years after Heart Journey, and features the next generation. The hero is Laev Hawtorn and the heroine is Camellia Darjeeling. Like all Robin D Owens books, the characters are flawed. Both Laev and Camellia struggles with their past. They have both been scarred, and both are wary of love. Camellia is a strong, indepenent woman, that's carving out her own niche in the Society. A bit more about the history of the world was revealed. Camellia's logic made sense to me. It is a sign how multifaceted the world is that Robin D Owens managed to add another facet to it. ( Which is a feat after ten books). The plot was good, with a lot of twists and turns but it felt like the first half missed a layer of internal conflict. It wasn't until 100 pages in that I felt that tug at my heart that all good Robin D Owens novels have. And that's the reason it doesn't get a higher grade.But it was a good read, and I do recommend it.show moreby Mikaela
