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....… (plus d'informations)

Heart of Fire
4 Stars

The daughter of a notorious "crackpot" archeologist, Jillian Sherwood is determined to restore her father's reputation, as well as her own, by locating the lost Stone City of the Anzar, the legendary home of the Amazon warriors. To attain her goal, Jillian must join forces with Ben Lewis, a womanizing ruffian and the best river guide Brazil has to offer. As Ben and Jillian clash wills and wits, danger lurks around every bend and they will have to work together to get out of the jungle in one piece.

An action-packed romp through the jungle with a strong willed and feisty heroine, and a gorgeous, if somewhat overly testosterone laden, hero.

The sparks between Jillian and Ben fly from the start and their snarky repartee, as he tries to get in her pants at every opportunity and she stops him in his tracks, is very amusing. Their romance develops slowly but surely toward the inevitable, and the eventual "I love yous" are sweet and believable.

The basic plot involving the expedition down the Rio Negro is captivating. Howard has certainly done her due diligence on the locale both in terms of the detailed descriptions of the journey, including information on the river itself, the wildlife and the various aspects of archeological research, as well as the specifics of the history and the legend of the Amazons.

The villains are apparent from the start, but this does not reduce the tension or suspense one iota.

In sun, a steamy hot romance with likable characters and an exciting storyline. ( )

Very exciting story about an archeological expedition in the Amazon. I was riveted along every step of trek never knowing when the bad guys or the environment was going to strike. The relationship between main characters was intense and steamy. Jillian tries to find a lost city in the Amazon jungle and hires Ben to guide the trip.

Now this is only my second Howard book, so I’m not sure, but so far it seems like the heroes are big walking sex machines. In "After the Night" pretty much all the hero could think about was when his naughty parts were going to get to play with the heroine’s naughty parts. And in "Heart of Fire", Ben isn’t much different. Well, okay so he isn’t always thinking about boinking the heroine, because if that was the case then they’d both be dead from multiple bullet wounds.

But other than Ben’s amazing libido we don’t get much info on him. Instead we get hints that something made him flee his Alabama ranch home at 20 to come to the Amazon, but we never find out why. Which kind of irked me. But we get enough info on Jillian’s past to satisfy me and I have to say that I really liked her character. I’m beginning to think that Howard just writes great heroines. Jillian was another strong heroine who managed to stay out of the stupid zone. She listened to Ben when he told her to stay out of the kill zone and didn’t go running around trying to find him when bullets started flying. Instead she did what she was told and dove for cover and I believe that even if Ben had kicked the bucket that Jillian would’ve been resourceful enough to make it out of the jungle on her own.

As for the bad guys, I liked Kates better as the main villain than Dutra. I thought Kates was better, because we got to know the reason for him funding this excursion and why he planned to off the Ben and Jillian. So I didn’t like the way Howard got rid of his character. I know Dutra was the more villainous of the two, but Kates had all the motives for wanting them all dead. Dutra was a bit too much of a horror movie killer stereotype, because the bastard wouldn’t die. You think he’s dead, but nope he comes back to try and off Jillian and Ben one more time. I probably wouldn’t have had a problem with him if he had better motives for running around killing people.

This is probably one of my favorite LH books. I absolutely adore Ben and Jillian. Ben is quite possibly my favorite male character ever. He's just so MALE!

Even after after all these years this book really held up well. ( )
