Most of his life, Saille was sent away by the head of the family, however since she is practically on life support now, he has assumed his place as head of the family, and he finds out that his heartmate has been hidden from him all of this time, as with other members of his family, and now will win her over, no matter what it takes.

But when finds out that a willow is her heartmate, she doesn't ever plan on accepting his gift, especially after what his family did to hers. However she can't deny the passion or the connection she feels coursing through her body.

My Thoughts 
Heart Dance was a fantastic read, and its been a while since I have read a science fiction fantasy romance, but when I discovered this series, I just knew I had to try it out. Heart Dance is the sixth installment and even though its in the middle of the series I didn't feel lost or anything, Owens portrayed this world that she created very well, with vivid description that it almost felt like I was there. The only problem I had with Heart Dance would be that the flow seemed choppy at times, so I think if it had just run a bit more smoothly, that it would have been have a fantastic read. Overall it was still a wonderful read with enough conflict, romance, magic and a powerful story that will just leave you wanting for more.

  1. I have to admit that I Was a little lost when reading the description but I guess that it would make sense if I were to read this book.

    It sounds very interesting, though I Rarely read fantasy and futuristic stuff :/

  2. Great review--I read this one a few years back and enjoyed it (4 stars as well). I still haven't read the others in the series (like you, I picked this one up first) but I do have them on my list.
