Just in time for Valentine's Day! A great short but funny read from one of my fav authors! Of course it gets hot! Skye does not disappoint! But the story itself sucks you into the investigation with the characters are trying to figure out what happened to the missing necklace of the Royal family.

Someone has stolen one of the Royals diamond necklaces and it is up to Emily and her men to find it before anyone notices it is missing.

It is almost Valentine’s Day and Emily and the guys get a call about a missing diamond necklace. No problem. Meet Royalty. Welcome back two of the guys who have been away on business. Find the necklace and nab the culprit. Celebrate Valentine’s Day.

Except nothing about the case is as it seems.

Skye MacKinnon gives us a racy novella with Beloved Heart

Beloved Heart: An Abandoned Heart Spin-Off (Defiance Book 3) Kindle Edition
by Skye MacKinnon

Thanks to Skye MacKinnon for the complimentary eARC. I am choosing to leave a fair and honest review.

This is the perfect latte of a book – hot, steamy, sweet, and frothy, but not meant to be a solid meal!

The mystery that acts as the MacGuffin to get things moving is wrapped up in a matter of paragraphs and most readers will have solved it.

The sex scenes are interesting, lengthy and sizzling. They are

I received an ARC from the author thru Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving my review. Beloved Heart is a short story based on the characters from Abandoned Heart. In this story Emily, Luther, Alistar and Ben are asked to track down a necklace stolen from the Royals. The characters and storyline are great. There's some mystery, laughs and a lot of heat. I really enjoyed reading more about Emily and her men. I would recommend this story to be read after Abandoned Heart just because you will ...more

I confess I haven't read Abandoned Hearts, but now I really need to.

Right from the first page, this book heats up and I got a kick out of Emily's reaction to Luther's get-up. Although it was also a bit rude of him to dress that way and tell her she had to get up when she really needed more sleep.

He does make it up to her in a very chocolatey way.

As Luther and Emily begin the investigation at Balmoral, Ben and Alistair head to Aberdeen to check out the train.

Plenty of twists in this one and I

This short little story made me want more of Emily and her men. Woah was it intriguing. You have smexy times and mystery. Emily and Luther are waiting on Alistair and Ben to get back on their mission when they are called in for another. Top priority!! They need to find a stolen necklace for the Princess. The clues don't add up! So do they find the necklace? Who is the culprit? Well I for one did not see that coming. However, when Ben and Alistair make it back they still get their smexy time ...more

A Valentine’s Day Spin-Off (Defiance, #1.5) a well written short that kept me turning pages. A necklace theft takes Luther and Emily to the Balmoral grounds where they stay in a cabin. Alistair and Ben being out of town can get to the train where the theft took place, they all meet up at Balmoral. This story has its twists and turns. I did not see that happening. I enjoyed reading it. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

I haven't read the main series but the author does a good job of making you feel connected to the characters and the story so you don't feel like your missing anything. I feel in love with luthur right off the bat I mean how can you. Emily is a girl after my own heart. I would have been geeking out over the royal family too.

Beloved Heart is a short story about Emily, Alistar, Ben and Luther who are on a mission for the Royal Family to find a stolen necklace. There is a lot going on in this short story that is filled with mystery, humor, suspense and unexpected twists. This can be read as a standalone but I recommend you read the first two books in the series. I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book.

Loved this steamy short from Skye Mackinnon! Em and her guys get dragged into a new investigation just in time for the holidays. This story was interesting, with an unexpected twist. And the steam factor was delightful, just the right level for the length of the book. Excellent installment in the series!

This is a contempory romance, a short and steamy reverse harem set after the events of Abandoned Heart (Defiance series book 1), but it can be read as a standalone. Another great story from Skye

I love this spin off from Abandoned Heart. This is set about a year later and the amazing relationship Emily has with her three men is still going strong.

Great short story which leaves you with a happy feeling afterwards.

Beloved Heart is an very short and sexy read! It has a little bit of a "who done it" and a lot of hot scenes. I like that this can be read by its self and has an HEA.

This is a cute, fun short story perfect for Valentine’s Day. There are plenty of laughs, sexy times, intrigue, suspense, and mystery as Emily and her men dive into the investigation of the missing royal jewelry. The characters are engaging and the storyline is entertaining. Definitely worth a quick read.

Skye MacKinnon is a USA Today & International Bestselling Author whose books are filled with strong heroines who don't have to choose.

She embraces her Scottishness with fantastical Scottish settings and a dash of mythology, no matter if she's writing about Celtic gods, cat shifters, or the streets of Edinburgh.
