Heart inscribed in a circle

Has anyone constructed a heart shape (really square with two semi-circles on two adjacent sides) inside a given circle? The largest heart shape would be tangent to the larger circle at a point on each of the semicircles and then a vertex of the square (opposite the two semicircles). Then can you analytically find the angles?

Thanks for your help.
