Book Description

A Family Affair.
Regan Donovan loves her family first and her job second. She’s never been the “happily ever after” type and prides herself on keeping a cool head at all times—until Gavin Lucas shows up at the Donovan Family Reunion, uninvited, unwelcome, and undeniably irresistible.

Risking It All.
She absolutely despises him and has made no secret of that fact. But Gavin Lucas knows better, he’s seen the passion in her eyes and the spark of attraction between them keeps him awake at night. Regan Donovan is the woman for him, the one he’s yearned for all his life. She’s also the reason he’s traveled to the Donovan private island when he should have been promoting his restaurant, because Gavin will stop at nothing to win the heart of this Donovan.
A weather disaster is predicted, an escaped convict is on the loose, and a wedding will be interrupted—will love once again prevail for the Donovans?

AUTHOR’S NOTE: Heart of a Donovan is a continuation of the previously released Pleasured by a Donovan. Therefore, reading Pleasured by a Donovan first is suggested. Both books are a part of The Donovans Series. For a complete listing of The Donovans books in reading order, please visit my website,

3.0 out of 5 stars Least favorite Donovan book June 26, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have enjoyed the Donovan series and even go back from time to time and reread a book. I felt the author crammed too much in about the other Donovan characters; therefore, I was losing track of the main characters, Regan and Gavin. And honestly Regan was really annoying she didn't come of as such an annoying character in the other books. It was an okay read but not worthy of a reread.

3.0 out of 5 stars It Was A Miss...For Me July 9, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
A.C. Arthur is an amazing author whose books I absolutely adore. The Donovans are a favorite of mine also. I didn't hate this book, but I didn't love it either. It bounced between Regan and Gavin's story to two or three other couples' story which made it very hard to get into. Also, Regan was a very difficult character to like, she was annoying and ridiculously angry about nothing, but called it fear. I don't believe Gavin and Regan were given a story of their own, they instead had to share it with others which again, sucked. Something was missing between these two, there was no real passion or love, but rather just sex. I'm not really sure how they got to love, because I never felt it. Again, I love Ms. Arthur's books, but this one was sort of a miss for me. I really hope Bailey is the next one up, her story is sure to be interesting.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love Gavin!!! :) May 31, 2013
By BeeDot
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Heart of a Donovan was a great, quick (well for me) read. It flows better if you've read Pleasured by a Donovan. Gavin refused to give up no matter how difficult Regan was. That ending has my mind spinning about what's to come! I can't wait! There was definitely a twist that I didn't see coming. I love the Donovan series and can't wait until the next book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Those Donovans May 31, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thoroughly enjoy reading about the Donovan Clan. You can count on a lot of romance, drama and great characterization. A C Arthur is one of the BEST writers of Romance novels writing today! Heart of a Donovan did not disappoint! Before you read this novel, make sure you have read the earlier Donovan Family novels because they are ALL together in this novel. (Surrender to a Donovan (Kimani Romance) Pleasured By A Donovan (The Donovans) Full House Seduction (Kimani Romance) Desire a Donovan (Kimani Romance) Summer Heat (Kimani Romance) If you are familiar with the Donovans, then Heart of a Donovan will really come alive for you. I highly recommend Heart of a Donovan.

3.0 out of 5 stars Heart of a Donovan (Fail) July 1, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have read all of the Donovan Books and this has been my least favorite. It had so many characters from the previous books that I had to keep going back to re-read other books just to keep things straight. At one point in the story even the author got confused and had two cousins getting set to get married.

The other 'fail' in this book was the underlying criminal activity going on. Normally A.C. Is a little more realistic than this. What kind of crime fighter keeps from informing people that a convicted killer is loose among their midst just because he doesn't want to worry the "seniors" and women in his own family? And who continues with a wedding the day after a murder (killer on the loose) and in the middle of a hurricane? Just too over the top.

Finally, the heroine was very annoying. It was the old, "I'm in love, but don't want to I'll be in denial" scenario. The hero was more likable. Even so their chemistry seemed off. Probably because half the book was about other people and it was hard getting to know them.

4.0 out of 5 stars The forgotten love story of Regan and Gavin July 16, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
All though I gave this book four stars I think the basic premise of the story was forgotten they were too many sub plots sometimes it was hard to keep up with all the characters and the plots. But I loved the closeness of this family and how the mother's embrace their son's ladies. This book ended with another plot coming to life in future books. I think there may be one on Devlin and Bailey. Happy Reading.

4.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing plot... Spoiler Alert! July 4, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Well developed characters and a star studded roster of evil doers out to get the Donovans' and wreck Noelle' s wedding day, including Mother Nature. The story was fascinating but the proofreader needed to do a better job.:Thing or think.. and two for too... Vegan for Vega... I was a tad confused because I was under the impression that Vega killed two women on that beach, but only one body was mentioned discovered?!? Can't wait to hear about the senoirs' dark secret.
Buy and enjoy reading! Keep writing A.C.
