Brittany Callaghan was instantly drawn to the gorgeous 7-foot tall stranger when she saw him. Being 6-foot herself, she had a difficult time finding men to date. She also had a difficult time letting go and so found herself a virgin at the age of 28. But when she spotted the sexy foreigner, Brittany found herself wondering what he would be like as a lover. Unfortunately, the stranger disappeared before Brittany could find out anything about him...only to reappear out of thin air in her living room a day later!
Dalden Ly-San-Ter, a Sha-Ka'an warrior, was determined to hunt down Jorren, his family's enemy who had come to Earth with mind-altering weapons to conquer the planet. He never planned on getting distracted by a beautiful Earth woman who thought he was a foreigner visiting the US for the first time. However, Dalden soon found that he couldn't bear to part with Brittany, even when he had captured Jorren - so he took her with him. Too bad Dalden couldn't get Brittany to believe that his spaceship was real, or that he was a real warrior, or that they were really on their way to his home planet...
Heart of a Warrior is the story of Shanelle's (Keeper of the Heart) brother and continues the tale of the Ly-San-Ter family. I read Keeper of the Heart first and found that I understood everything fine without reading the first book in the series called Warrior's Woman, but I have to admit that the background was helpful here in Heart of a Warrior because Dalden and Brittany were all over the galaxy. Still, I don't think that you need to read any of the other books to understand what is going on. That aside, this book has to be my least favorite in the series so far due to the boredom factor. It started off well, but as soon as we got to the good part - where Brittany flew off into space with Dalden - it fell apart. For the remaining 2/3rds of the book, Brittany refuses to believe that anything that is happening to her is real and that it is all some elaborate hoax, despite tons of evidence to the contrary. I liked Brittany and Dalden, but I just didn't feel that the chemistry was as heated between the two of them as some of Johanna Lindsey's other characters. I guess my main complaint is just that I expect more from this author than I received here. If you really want to read it, find a copy at your local library or borrow it from a friend who was unfortunate enough to pay money for it. It is still a pretty fun, fast read, but definitely nothing memorable.
