I usually read the Heart books in a day and then re-read them repeatedly. I was shocked to find myself constantly putting down Heart Secret and not wanting to return to it. I pushed myself to give it just one more chance several times but at about 75% through I couldn't get up the interest needed to finish the story.

The romantic couple is boring and difficult to relate to, and the "romance" between them was lackluster and not romantic at all. Pretty early on I was hoping that the heroine, Artemisia, would walk away from her hateful, cruel, rude, emotionally immature heartmate and find a husband who wanted her, loved her, valued her for the strong, smart, gifted woman she is. I don't understand why she gives him chance after chance. He does NOTHING to deserve it. Like I said, I couldn't relate to her doormat personality at all.

The hero does, however, do many things to justify the heroine walking away--if only she would. ****SPOILERS**** He breaks the heartmate law concerning her (with ZERO repercussions), mind-rapes her in her sleep using the heartmate link (for which she is angry about for two seconds and then just lets it go), and he only starts wanting her when she tries to move on to find a man who will treat her right, then he's suddenly jealous and possessive of her when he didn't value her at all over the many many many years he had a chance to claim her.

When they do hook up physically, it's not about love but the lust that naturally occurs between heartmates. I didn't feel any sparks between them. In fact, reading the love scene was like watching two people who dislike each other hook up only because they are horny, which was a big turn off.

Robin D Owens is one of my favourite authors and I have read every book of the Celta series.

I didn't find this book up to her usual standards.
This book is not one story, it's more two different plots, the first one is about Garrett, what he went through with a disease that killed many others
Then it drops that plot and goes into a murder mystery.
The murder mystery is a interesting plot, and I hadn't worked out who was the killer by the time we were informed in the end.
I enjoyed the murder mystery, but the first one didn't feel finished at all.
(I hope something nasty happens to a certain healer in a future book).

The whole book feels like lots of detail have been left out, and the end was rushed.
And of all the charactors I like TG the most.
Hopefully her next book will finished off questions this one started, that should get me to enjoy this book more.

Heart Secret is the latest book of Robin Owens' Heart Mate series, and it is the 11th book. I have really enjoyed this series, and Heart Secret continues the wonderful journey in the world of Celta. The destined mates in this book is Garrett Primross and Artemesia Mugwort Panax.

Garrett is a private investigator, whom we got to know in Heart Search. He is a friend of Laev T'Hawthorn. Artemesia, is a second level healer, whom we met in the last book also, and we know of her sister Tiana as Camellia's friend.

A few years have passed since a terrible sickness caused many deaths, including Garrett's ex love. He has never been able to get over this loss. Until now, there have been no repeat of this Iasc sickness, when a young boy becomes sick. The healers decide to be proactive, and they have asked Garrett to help discover why he was the only one who got sick at that time, and survived. They know it is something with his blood, and they want him to volunteer to help be a guinea pig. The first level healers assign Artemisa to be his healer, and they are locked in a residence to block the disease for getting out. Garrett is injected with the virus.

One of the fun things of this series, is how residences talk like people. Very cool. I enjoyed the Turquoise House (TQ) helping clean the germs, and talk to both Garrett Artemesia. Later we meet another residence in the Mugwort home...Balm Heal House.

While infected and sick with the virus, Garrett has many nightmares, and Artemesia learns about his dead love, Dinni. It is Artemesia who helps Garrett through the roughest part of the virus, which he eventually will overcome again. During his lock down, a kitten gets into the house and decides he is Garrett's FamCat.

I really enjoy how Robin Owens presents her characters. She has the young, the immature, the struggling to get by, the rich, divorced, the talented. In this book Garret is a private detective, struggling to get by. He has suffered a terrible loss of his first love and many close friends to an epidemic. The anguish he struggles with isn't overblown, it's presented so you understand and don't blame him for not wanting another relationship. Both he and his intended have suffered and their coming together, the help of the TC residence and fams was wonderful. The feral fams and Garret's working with them was new and well done. I wouldn't say this is my favorite book in the series. What I missed was more mention of past characters and what they're doing in their lives. We get a brief glimpse of a few but not enough to sink our claws into. As for the fam healer. .. Nice to see one of her children continue on in her practice. Love the coons. I doubt Artemisia knows just how wild those critters are! Too bad we didn't get a close up run with the kitten through the rabbit holes. I could picutre his joy in the chase!

Two things I would have liked to see concluded. One was closure on the Mugworts getting their name cleared. They've suffered for 16 years, the criminals are now all caught, case closed, others that were impacted have gone on with their lives but this family is still shunned. Garrett could have asked for this as his reward for solving the case. There was mention of Garrett being able to name his price for taking this cae. I don't think resorting his heart mate's family to their title would be too much.

Then there's Healer Heather (T'Heather's daughter) that comes across as unforgiving, always right, and not worthy of her position.
