About the Author
Born in Elkton, Maryland, Donna Fasano met her knight in shining armor — a logical scientist type — when she was still a teen. They married, raised two children, and currently live in Northern Delaware with their wild-dingo-of-a-dog, Roo. Donna loves to read and has an eclectic taste when it comes to fiction. She collects cookbooks and loves to use them. She hikes, bikes, and kayaks (physical activity is necessary due to her love affair with food). Donna has been writing romance novels and women's fiction since 1989. Her books have sold nearly four million copies worldwide, and she is pleased to be able to say she's a USA Today bestselling author.

The main, secondary, and even minor characters are well developed and realistic-- from the judge's tough stance on juvenile offenders, to Zach's teenaged reactions, to the family members coming to terms with the choices they made. The plot has many interesting twists and turns to keep you guessing what happened in the past, and what will happen next. This romance is a bit spicier than some of Ms Fasano's sweet romances--just enough to keep you fanning yourself! Usually, I have a strong feeling, negative and positive, about main characters; but in this star-crossed lovers' story, I found both Lucas and Tyne engaging, and could understand the rationale for their choices. Watching Zach accept, change, and grow, while learning about his Lenape heritage and family, was a highlight of the novel for me. I have to admit that I fell for the wonderful character, Uncle Jasper. I loved his gentle wisdom and story-telling to make points, which helped the characters accept their past decisions, and learn from them. I felt like jumping in my car and driving north, just to meet him and hear stories!
I appreciated the tying up of loose ends that Ms Fasano provided for the end of the story, and that it didn't just include a happily-ever-after for Lucas and Tyne, but satisfactory closure for all of the plot lines. Get your tissues ready for the epilogue!
I wasn't totally sure about Reclaim My Heart at first. Tyne wasn't someone I immediately liked or understood. I thought at first she was rather shallow and wishy-washy, and perhaps that was a part of my lesson in this book--don't judge people you don't know. When I reached Chapter Four, the book became a real page-turner for me and I couldn't put it down. I found what it was about Donna Fasano's romances that had pulled me in from the beginning--real people, real life situations and wonderful settings that made me feel I was part of the story. Stories that made me laugh and cry with the characters.
I fell in love with Lucas Silver Hawk and Tyne's tragic story. I fell in love with Uncle Jasper. I even liked Zach, rebellious teenager and all.
A delightful book, that will get your blood flowing in some scenes, but will leave you with a little soul searching of your own. Sometimes we need to say we're sorry to someone we love for something we did many years ago that strained our relationship. Perhaps that person is waiting, just like you, aching to mend that relationship.
Reclaim My Heart is a story of family, culture and above all, love that endures. Highly recommended.
