Heart of Fire | [Linda Howard]

Heart of Fire

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.

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....

    "Full of humor, adventure, and passion"


    Never a dull moment--"Heart of Fire" is one of Linda Howard's best.


    In an effort to reestablish her deceased father's reputation Gillian Sherwood, an archaeologist, is on a quest for a legendary red diamond and proof of the Anzars existence. Ben Lewis is a ruffian, scoundrel, and the best river guide in Brazil. When they team up to lead an expedition deep into the heart of the Amazon rainforest, they must face the perils of the jungle, out-maneuver murderous thieves, and then find their way back to civilization.


    Narrator Tanya Eby Sirois gave an excellent performance.

    "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!

    "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.

    "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!
