Publisher's Summary

Love is in the air when the Strong brothers come home and revisit their roots with the sexy story of how it all began....

Lisha Rockmon just wants a good man who respects her family values. But most of the men of Holtsville, S.C., want to get physical a lot faster than she does - except Kael Strong. Their attraction is hard to ignore. Yet the one man Lisha can imagine a future with doesn't seem ready to get involved at all....

Wounded by his last relationship, Kael is hesitant to open his heart again, even to a woman as irresistible as Lisha. But despite his misgivings - and some outside interference - love just may find a way, setting the stage for future generations....

Bitter - Sweet

This was a perfect ending to a series. I enjoyed the entire series. This was not my favorite of the series, but a perfect ending. I hate to see the series end. It is a great family. I enjoyed each and every story and to end with the parents telling their story of how they met and married, which started it all, is very fitting.

This was not just a sappy story, it had drama, turmoil and love. I could read about the strong family every week. It would be nice if Ms.Bryant would write another one. It would be nice to know about the things she talked about in this book come to fruition: like Zaria having twins again, and the other brother and his wife having a child. Strong Heat tells the mother and father's story but also gave us updates on the entire family.

Great Ending to the Strong Family Series

Good entertainment!! If you like African American novels with good storylines and light but appropriate number of sex scenes, I suggest this series. This novel tacks back to the beginning of the Strong Family. How mom and dad met, fell in love but still had ups and downs that threatened to keep them apart. All four of their boys are married and their daughter is engaged and they have several grandchildren, but the story is clearly centered on the early days. Great read and well narrated.

Love The Strongs

This is my favorite of the Strong series. This story goes back in time to tell the beginning of the Strong family when Lisha and Kael met & fell in love. You always get present day updates on each child and their family.

Passionate love story. Envelopes u from the start!

Would you listen to Strong Heat again? Why?

Yes! I will. I really wanted a great love story and this book was that and more! Kale & Leesha...man...the type of love that most people only get to dream about. Like finding a unicorn. I havent read any of the other books, but I will go back and start from the beginning. This book was fantastic. One of the best love stories Ive ever read (coming from an avid reader). If you are like me I research everything to death before I buy it....Take it from me....BUY THIS BOOK!!! You will NOT regret it!

Who was your favorite character and why?

ALL OF THEM!!! lol

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I almost cried at lot of times, but I was at work so I had to play it cool.

Hearing every thing in the background no fun . . .

The love that started it all. The test, lies, betrayal, loss, understanding, confusion, and drama. Family will stand by you. Family will try to dictate your life. Family will try to break you time and time again for selfish reasons. Through it all Lisha and Kael found a way to see beyond the mess. It took time. It took patience. It took Strong Love to see them through to five beautiful children and a new generation of Strong's. This holiday season come remissness with the Strong family and see how it all began.

I am not a fan of hearing all the inhalations, swallows and so forth from my narrator. So having to hear them for hours was a bit aggravating and off putting. No matter how fast I pushed my audio I could still hear them all. I could only imagine how much this would have annoyed me if I was listening in real time. This for me threw off the narration to a fantastic story. The first Strong love. Lisha and Kael.
