Heart Duel - Celta, Bk 3
Author: Robin D. Owens
Healer Lark Collinson hates the street duelling that is a way of life among the noble families on Celta -- it was just such a skirmish that killed her Healer husband and left her a grieving widow. The last thing she wants is to love a man to whom fighting is a way of life -- a man like the brashly confident Holm Holly. — All it takes is one brief...  more »

Love this whole series.

I absolutely love this series!! Watching the suave and handsome Holm Holly Jr. fumble, stumble, and botch the courtship was entertaining, even though I felt the heroine made things harder for him than it needed to be. I hate when the hero does absolutely everything right. My imagination can only be suspended so far!! LOL!!!

Heart Duel is book 3 in the Celta Heart Mates series and although a good read it is not my favorite of the books. Definitely a keeper but the hero is far more likable than the heroine who seems to suffer from an acute case of reverse snobbishness. Nothing and no one in the first families is acceptable to her; and as a healer she deplores all fighters. The hero, of course, is both. Their kitten fams [introduced by the delightful character, 'Vinni' T'Vine, the boy prophet] are amusing in their differences. The romance is resolved - but tragic events occur in both of their families and further developments await in later books. At least the 'star-crossed lovers' survive the experience...

One of the strengths of Robin Owens' writing is her believable world-building. She has crafted a fascinating, self-consistent world that she draws the reader into - background information always appears when needed and is never presented out of context. The characters have depth and you see their world, and their stories through their eyes.

Do not read the series out of order...
