I loved this series and I most definitely enjoyed this the true ending to the story. Loads of intrigue and of course the muse of Dance finds her guardian. It's all in good fun watching Tera come out of her shell. She shows us just how strong she really is. It's a sweet story as she and Gavin find their place in each others lives. Most importantly everything gets tied up nicely by this author as we say adieu to the muses and their guardians they will be missed.

I eagerly anticipated reading this book and I have to say I definitely wasn’t disappointed! This is the sixth book in the series - and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed them all . . . . mind you, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed all the books I’ve read by this highly talented author!

In this story, Tera Muldoon is the Muse of Dance and all the Muses and their guardians agree she is the most likely next target in danger from the vengeful immortal who is trying to end their lives and their dreams. For this reason,

Tensions are reaching a boiling point in the “war” between Kronos, the father of Zeus, and this generation’s reborn daughters of Zeus, known as muses. Now that Kronos has escaped Tartarus, he wants retribution on Zeus for overthrowing and imprisoning him. His way to do so is to retaliate on the human vessels of Zeus’s daughters. Prophecy states that every muse will have a guardian with abilities to protect them in their time of need.

This book about Tera and Gavin was breath taking! I pictured what her dances were, what her mother may have done to her, and what it felt like to be empowered and not shy. I felt like I was her while trying to break out of my shell... it was a beautiful transformation to see. Such an amazing book that anyone can enjoy!!!
Prepare to be blown away!

“Dance with me.”

Dance of the Heart is the sixth fabulous installment in Lisa Kessler’s Muse Chronicles series. It can be read as a stand alone if you insist, but be aware that there is a plotline which has been building with every release. That said, Lisa is great about filling in necessary information from what has transpired previously – so there’s no worry that newbies will ever be lost. But, the series is so wonderful. If you can, read it from the first. You won’t

Really love this series! It's great to see the story really evolving! I'd start with the first book in the series before starting this one, but each book is about a different couple. There's a storyline throughout the whole series, and past main characters have roles in this book. In this book, the muses are still in danger; especially with an angry, unruly god on the loose. Tera is one of the muses, the muse of dance, that lives on her own, so a bodyguard is hired to help protect her. Gavin is ...more

I enjoyed reading this story about the muse of dance meeting her Guardian. He was hired to protect her but as they become emotionally involved the Guardian must keep his head on straight which becomes very hard. With his new power of super speed he will have to use it even if time stands still. Of course the other muses and Guardians will have a showdown with Kronos. There is only one muse left who needs to meet her Guardian and I am looking forward to the next book in the series. I received a ...more

Another great book from this author! Love the Muse series. This one is about the Muse of Dance, Tera, and her Guardian bodyguard Gavin. The chemistry between these two is hot and oh so sweet. The threat of Kronos is high and they all have a big battle ahead. The time is coming closer. I can’t wait for the next book. The ending was a bit of a twister and now I am anxious to read what happens next! Exciting stuff.

Another great addition to the Muse Chronicles series! It's always magic when a muse meets her guardian, and Tera and Gavin's story has been my favorite. The tempo of the story and relationship is fast paced, but the writing and plot makes it to where you don't say "but in real life...". The reader easily allows themselves to suspend belief, and dive right in. Fans of the series get treated to humor, romance, action, and a little bit of justice. And now that we have a little sneak peek into what ...more

This is the sixth book in the series and I feel they just keep getting better . Tera is a dance instructor who is also has the muse of dance . When she is threatened and on the top of a hit list . She has to do something so she hires a bodyguard . Gavin Thompson who really is good at his job but when he meets Tera all things are thrown out the window and love blossoms.
I simply adore this series, the characters are so well written and complex. I love Tera she is so sweet and tough . But she is

**Disclaimer: As there is an overall plot throughout this series, I highly recommend reading the books in order for continuity.**

Tera, the Muse of Dance, is also the owner of a dance studio. Fitting, right? Her love for dance is as much a part of her as the muse she embodies. And though she's overcome so much due to her past, it left it's mark as well. Tera suffers from social anxiety, a byproduct of the life she was forced to live thanks to someone who should've loved and supported her, not

One of the reasons I am drawn to Ms. Kessler’s books is just how well she draws the reader into the romance of a story, and this book is no exception. Tera is a shy, withdrawn person except when it comes to dancing, and I love how well we feel her hesitation. We also get to see one of the reasons she’s this way with the introduction of her mother. The author did so well in this characterization that I just wanted to slap her mother silly! Along comes her Guardian, and she begins to come out of ...more

Dance of the Heart

Another outstanding story from this author! The love story is fabulous and all the Muses are so likeable as are the Guardians. The series is wonderful and when the last book is published I will be re-reading the complete series again. The books are that good.

I jumped right into the middle of the series and I loved it. I enjoyed the growing relationship between Tera and Gavin. This was a quick read and I'm going to go back and read the series from the beginning.

I love the concept of the Greek Mythology Muses and their guardians it brings to mind those epic tales. Gavin and Tera each have their vulnerabilities and brokeness,but their connection leaps off the page and makes them strong. The action, romance and adventure blended perfectly. The was plenty of tension to keep you turning the page. I love Ms. Kessler's series they always deliver a heart pounding story.

Amazingly HOT!

Wow! ! !
I didn't see that coming!
Tera has always been the shy introvert who hardly ever talked to anyone except Polly. She opened up a little bit to Clio and Callie after Polly's death. But now that Gavin is on the scene she is showing her funny side.
Gavin is assigned as her bodyguard and discovers that he is her guardian and has superspeed as his power.

Dance of the Heart

Ohhh this series is so good. Every time I read one I think it's my favorite. But then I read the next book and think it's my favorite. A dancing muse and a dancing guardian, it doesn't get any better for me. I'm excited to read book 7.

Dance of the Heart (Muse Chronicles #6) by Lisa Kessler is part of an awesome series. I would suggest that the boos be read in order but perhaps if the reader understand the prophecy they could read this one as a stand-alone. Still I think the enjoyment of Tera’s story would be enhanced if the others especially the first book was already read.

Tera Muldoon is this generation Muse of Dance who desperately need a bodyguard. Enter Gavin Thompson. However, it is never simple for the Tera and her

In this 6th book of the series, we meet Gavin Thompson. He is a friend of Nate. How does Nate know him? Who else ends up recognizing him in thisstory was a trip! I had some suspicions, and they were confirmed much later in the story. What does Gavin do for a livign? Why is he at the dance studio that Tera owns?Things getMIGHTY interesting in this book.

The Muse Chronicles are so fascinating. We get to learn how each Muse finds their Guardian and watch them build their relationships and theater, to one day bring humanity together.

I love Gavin and Tera’s story. When a shy person is able to step out of their comfort zone to show the world what they can’s inspiring. Gavin is an all business kind of guy until he hires on to protect the beautifully talented dance teacher.

Tera has stayed out of society’s social circles, except for her

I love this series!

Mythology has been something I’ve loved since I found out where my name came from when I was 7. Romance books are something I discovered later and came to love almost as much, but books with mythology and romance make me ecstatic. This series has kept me hooked from the start, and the latest installment involving an incarnation of the muse of dance and her Guardian had me devouring the book. I loved how caring and giving Tera is with those she teaches dance to and Gavin. Gavin

This series continues to blow me away! Tera is the shy, quiet one who carries the Muse of Dance inside of her. Gavin is the bodyguard brought in to help protect her, since she is the only Muse living alone. With Kronus looking to get Tera in order to torture her, and hopefully lure Zeus back to this world, Gavin will have to accept his role as her Guardian. He will attempt to save her and find out if the sparks that exist between them are real and if they can both put their pasts behind them and ...more

Dance of the Heart may be my favorite of the series to date. Tera has survived a stage mother, an eating disorder and dancing on the Metropolitan Opera’s stage. Now she has a Greek Titan gunning for her. She may need a little help. When the guy she’d crushed on from afar during her high school days turns up as not only her bodyguard but turns out to be her fated Guardian she is tickled.
I love that Tera is stronger than she knows and that Gavin is perfectly flawed. Their dance gave me shivers of

Here we go again with another delightful installment in this series this time centered around dance. Dance can have you feeling all the way to the center of the soul. The characters this one centers around are Tera and Gavin. She gets you with these two I do believe more than the other ones too. She sears you with the heat these two generate when they come together. The drama is not skimpy either but high caliber. Another one delivered that keeps you enthralled from beginning to end.

Tera and Gavin were perfect for each other. His superhuman abilities was spot on. This book was fantastic and just as awesome as the others in this series. I enjoyed it throughout. The suspense was off the hook and the danger forever present. Throw a burning romance in and I found a winner. Book gifted to me.

Dances into your heart!

Tera and her guardian had me so enthralled, I actually was sad to see their story finish! I actually hoped that somehow there would be more chapters. That is the mark of a great story when you long for more...I can't wait for the final muse story!

Wow! Goodreads just asked me for my city of birth and date of death... What if I could answer that? Would I live life differently if I knew for sure how much longer I had left?

Interesting thought.

That's generally how my writer brain works. I've been dreaming up stories since I was in elementary school. My first book was titled
