I’ve learned that not everything is what it seems. If you start to look too close, you uncover things people don’t want you to see. It’s why I hide. It’s why no one knows the real me. But he sees me. He sees the darkness in my heart but he’s not afraid, because he’s like me. They say opposites attract, but we’re proof that like-and-like are a far more potent combination.

Novalee Clarke is hiding from a past she wants to leave behind, and Jacen Kensington is running from his.

The thing about hiding and running is eventually the thing you’re trying to escape catches up to you.

And when it does?

It changes everything.


I loved Rae and Cade’s story (Rae of Sunshine), adored Thea and Xander’s (When Stars Collide), but I absolutely felt as if I was experiencing every moment of Novalee and Jace’s (Dark Hearts) firsthand.

Dark Hearts by Micalea Smeltzer is perhaps the best story in the Light in the Dark series and that is saying something because anything written by this amazing women will leave you craving more. When I first read Rae of Sunshine on the day it was released back in November of 2014 I had no clue it was going to be part of a series, but I was super ecstatic to discover there were more to come!

I instantly connected with Nova and Jace’s story because I have been invested in these characters since the very beginning and watched as their feelings for each other developed throughout the first two books. They both have faced their fair share of horrors and have fought to be where they are today so it’s no surprise that their story would be titled something like Dark Hearts.

Nova and Jace’s story is so beautifully written and something that you should experience first hand so I will just say that I STRONGLY recommend picking up your copy today!


About Micalea Smeltzer

Hi. I’m Micalea. Ma-call-e-uh. Weird name, I know. My mom must’ve known I was going to be odd even in the womb. I’ve written a lot of books. Like a lot. Don’t ask me how many, I don’t remember at this point. I have an unhealthy addiction to Diet Coke but I can’t seem to break the habit. I listen to way too much music and hedgehogs have taken over my life. Crazy is the word that best sums up my life, but it’s the good kind of crazy and I wouldn’t change it for anything.
