On the planet Celta, accepting a HeartMate can be the greatest challenge in the universe... Antenn, an architect hired to build a cathedral in Druida City, dares not think of his HeartMate. Even though he yearns for her, he’s taken steps to ensure she will be forever unknown to him. After all, how could he, a commoner who grew up in the slums, the brother of a murderer, be worthy of any woman? Tiana, a priestess, has her own fears about being a HeartMate. She's watched her friends struggle with such a stormy destiny. She's sure her HeartMate has never claimed her due to a terrible scandal involving her Family, and she's set aside hopes for love. Antenn's gotten the commission of his life. The cathedral will make him famous, but more, it will last for ages and prove to others he can contribute to Celta...if the controversial structure isn't destroyed while being built. Tiana, too, is an integral part of this process, but the villain who wrecked her Family is ready with firebombs. Can they trust each other in dangerous circumstances to succeed...and to love?

my thoughts


So let me start off by saying I absolutely love this cover and that it played a really big part in why I decided to pick this book up. That said, Robin’s Celta Heart mate series is absolutely new to me and I was intrigued by the synopsis enough to give it a try. The beginning of the book had rich dialogue and led readers through an interesting story but what was lacking for me was a strong hero or heroine lead. I think for me it is something I really look for in an Urban Fantasy or Paranormal Romance book and it made it difficult for me to get drawn into the story. There wasn’t a character that I really was drawn too or who’d adventure I really cared about and for that read, this book became a DNF for me. There is the possibility that this turns into a terrific story once you pass the first 30% but I stopped around that point since I’d lost interest.


Did not Finish 🙁
