I'm a librarian who loves anime, manga, and reading a wide variety of genres.
The Willow Residence, explaining the rules of HeartGifts:
"The HeartMate must accept a HeartGift willingly and without knowing it is a HeartGift before the other can claim them as a HeartMate and HeartBond with them. The punishment for telling a person that they are your HeartMate is that the offending party must always be chaperoned while in the presence of the HeartMate--"
1) How could she (the person being given the HeartGift is almost always female) not know it's a HeartGift, considering that the things are practically lust bombs?
2) So it's okay for the man (it's almost always a man) to be unchaperoned around the woman if he knows they're HeartMates and she doesn't, but they have to be chaperoned if he puts them on even ground by telling her? I remember having problems with this rule back when I first started the series.
So far, this is a stronger and more focused book than Heart Quest, but I keep coming across things that annoy me.
