Publisher's Summary

He’s forged from heaven. She’s promised to hell.

Professor Maximus Kane can no longer deny his passion for his stunning yet mysterious student, Kara Valari. But surrendering to their desires carries more consequences than just violating the Alameda University conduct codes. Kara has defied her destiny. Higher directives have been violated. Now there’s hell to pay. 

It’s a crisis for which there seems no solution, until the explosive secrets of Maximus’s bloodline are exposed. Despite all his doubts and fears, Maximus has no choice but to accept help from his enigmatic father, which means coming to terms with his heritage and embracing a bizarre new world of gods and demons. Because somewhere in that world - in the strange and sordid secrets surrounding his past - is the key to protecting Kara’s future. Nothing has ever meant more to him than saving the treasure of her life and the fire of her heart.

While earth’s lower realms seek payback for Kara’s transgressions, Kara finds a new ally in a surprising place: the Valari matriarch herself. Beneath the scrutiny of the world press, Veronica orchestrates a plan to protect her daughter by doing what she does best - shining the spotlight on her. But by her side, Maximus can’t escape the glare of the paparazzi.

Can they buy time and blind their enemies with Kara’s fame? Or will Hollywood’s new “it” couple and their forbidden love incite more vengeance than they’d ever bargained for?

This is what I'm talking about!

The first book set the tone and this book is the story, the meat AND the potatoes. Almost everything is explained from who is Maximus' dad? Why did his mother not tell him about his dad? What did Kara's grandfather do to damn his entire family? Then the ultimate happens and now we are scrambling. I. Can. Not. Wait!!!!

The last three chapters

Of course we are left with another cliff hanger, but this one proves how purposeful it is by dragging on with repeat internal dialogue of undying love. Until the action packed last three chapters which were fantastic.

Honestly... read the first one, it is good. Skip the second. I hope the last one actually has a point.

Good Story, but

I am really enjoying this book. However, I resent the fact that I have to spend a credit to get to the next section. Because of that I am going to stop listening and won’t by the next book.

Such a shame, so much potential

The first book had so much going on,was looking forward to this book but it was-the exact opposite boring kept waiting it never came. Won’t be waiting for book 3.

Great Story - be prepared

I just finished Heart of Fire and I don’t even know how to write a proper review for book 2.

We get more Maximus and Kara and I love the relationship that they are building together. We get to learn more about Maximus, his mom, and his family. On the Kara front they spend more time in the spotlight while waiting to see how their relationship is going to disturb Hades.

Just when you are enjoying Maximus and Kara’s time together - don’t let your guard down. You won’t believe what’s coming your way.

Love, love, love their story and can’t wait to see how their story ends.

loved the continuing story !

This second book in the series continues the story. I can't really see this ending though in the third book. I an eagerly awaiting the 3rd book and hoping that's not going to be it. I feel very invested in the characters!!

Frustrating.

I have to start by saying that I really wanted to like this series but for me it just never develops quite right. With the first book it dragged out until the end before you knew what was going on. I got the second in hopes that it would finally get to the point of the story and although this book is better than the first, it is still a let down.

Really enjoyable to listen

The myths and gods come to life with this book and I enjoy listening to it more as the performance of the characters spot on.
