Rand T'Ash has found his HeartMate, his soulmate, but he can't seem to connect with her. He grew up Downwind, the worst part of the city, and never learned how to treat a lady as gentle as his HeartMate. Unfortunately, she needs his protection, because there are those who would try to kill her as well as him. His Familiar, Zanth, is only too happy to help T'Ash guard her, but even Zanth wants the three of them to become a family. Being a cat lover myself, Zanth was my favorite character, and the author did a wonderful job writing his dialouge.

Today you will meet your HeartMate. Rand T'Ash's blood thrummed in his temples as he stared at the divination dice....
T'Ash has avenged his dead family and carefully crafted his life. He knows Danith is his future and the future of his clan. Danith, an orphaned commoner, wants life easy too. But one look at T'Ash tells her that he's going to make her life quite difficult. She knows he is noble, powerful and dangerous. Not for her. Yet he pursues her and forces her to grow. Then there's the second prophecy: A woman surrounded by blasers, in peril...through misadventure, Danith becomes involved in a clash of gangs.
All his life, Rand T'Ash has looked forward to meeting his
HeartMate, with whom he could begin a family. Once a street tough but now a respected nobleman and artisan, he has crafted the perfect HeartGift, which, in the custom of the psychically-gifted population of the planet Celta, is the way a man finds-and attracts-his wife...
Danith Mallow is irresistibly drawn to the magnificent necklace on display in T'Ash's shop, but she is wary of its creator, despite an overpowering attraction. In a world where everyone is defined by their psychic ability, Danith has little, and thus is at the opposite end of the social spectrum from T'Ash. But T'Ash refuses to accept her rejection, and sees it as a challenge instead.
