Publisher's Summary

A fabulous lost Amazon city once inhabited by women warriors and containing a rare red diamond: it sounded like myth, but archeologist Jillian Sherwood believed it was real, and she was willing to put up with anything to find it - even Ben Lewis. Ruffian, knock-about, and number one river guide in Brazil, Ben was all man - over six feet of rock-hard muscles that rippled under his khakis, with lazy blue eyes that taunted her from his tanned face.

Jillian watched him come to a fast boil when she refused to reveal their exact destination upriver in the uncharted rain forests - and resolved to stand her ground. Neither of them could foresee what the days ahead promised: an odyssey into the fiery heart of passion and betrayal, and a danger that would force them to cast their fates together, immersed in the eternal, unsolved mysteries of love....

©1997 Linda Howard; (P)2009 Brilliance Audio, Inc.

    "She's GOOD!"

    Linda Howard is good at storytelling! I love her stories - all of'em. This story was thought provoking and easy to follow. Really a good read.

    Story
    "Good not great."

    I did not like the narrator but the story was pretty good. I did have a hard time with the main male character, we was a jerk, but in the end he prevaled. It did remind me of Romancing the Stone with Kathleen Turner and Michael Douglas.

    I believe there are 3 elements to a great romance audible book: good narration, believable plot, flawed characters and great dialogue!

    Story
    "Liked the plot did not like the hero!"

    I really liked the plot and the location of this story! The descriptions of the amazon and stone city were fantastic. The character of Jillian came across as sincere, i really connected with her! I did not like the hero at all, and was really disappointed by some of his actions. Most of all I did not buy into their chemistry. Narration was ok, this narrator does a lot of Susan Mallory listens, and I could not help but feel like I was listening to one of her books.

    12 step program please. I am addicted to Audible! I love trashy sexy books, award winning novels and everything between. Bring it!

    Story
    "Lame"

    Honestly the narrator's voice was so distracting that I couldn't get through the book. The lead male character sounded like whiny teenager and I found myself completely unable to get into the story. Bummer since I just finished listening to After the Night by Linda Howard before this. I loved that book and was hoping for another L.Howard "can't put down" audible listen.

    "Unpleasant."

    First of all, the narrator has an annoying lisp.
    As for the story itself...predictable, boring, not good at all. Absolutely nothing, and I do mean nothing, happens until the very end of the book. The rest is just the main female character whining and getting injured and getting massages from the main male character, who is a stereotypical invincible robot, meaning he is omnipotent and can not get injured under any circumstances. The romance is frankly ridiculous. Why would these to love each other? They wouldn't.

    After hours and hours of nothing at all happening, the only action we get is a good 80 percent of the characters getting systematically slaughtered. Then some nice hot sex after watching said slaughter (ahh, how romantic).

    No, no, no. This is not romance. I wish I could un-read this drivel.

    Story
    "I resisted buying this but I am SO GLAD I got it."
    Would you listen to Heart of Fire again? Why?

    Yes, the reviews I read were mixed and I was thinking it would be a so-so. Some spots did drag, but I find that with almost all of Howard's books. Overall I was very pleased with it.


    What does Tanya Eby Sirois bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I have listened to a few of her books and found her to a an average narrator, but this one was perfect for her. Every voice was faultless.


    Any additional comments?

    There was something that is in most Howard's books, besides dragging, is the the ending; it completes the story but is done so fast, I like more details...of course I never want a good book the end, so that may be why I find them wrapped up so fast.

    "Excellent!"

    This long time favorite has turned into another excellent audio book by Audible. What's not to like about an encoded map that takes you on a trek through the Amazon looking for a lost city and priceless artifacts? Throw in a hot hero and feisty heroine along with some nasty bad guys and you have it all. I always worry when books that are favorites of mine come out in audio as occasionally the narrator just does not get the 'vibe" of the book but in the case of Heart of Fire it was spot on! Thanks Audible!
