Publisher's Summary

Vampire prince Gabriel Redthorne knew better than to fall in love with a witch. Jacinda Colburn claimed his heart, then nearly shoved a stake through it. For that, he should end her life - brutally and without remorse.

But with old enemies closing in fast and a dangerous new evil terrorizing New York - an evil only Jacinda can stop - Gabriel has one choice: trust her, or they're both going down.

Risking his heart again was never part of the plan, but when a sneak attack leaves Jacinda on death’s doorstep, Gabriel knows he’s in too deep to turn back now. He’ll do whatever it takes to protect his little moonflower. To stand by her side as they burn their foes to ash.

But if there’s one thing life in the shadows has taught them, it’s this:

No matter how many enemies you destroy today, the ghosts of the past will always hunt you down.

And one way or another, they’ll always make you pay....

The Vampire Diaries meets Fifty Shades of Grey in the sassy, steamy Vampire Royals of New York world! Heart of Fury is the second book in Gabriel and Jacinda's trilogy, a scorching hot enemies-to-lovers paranormal romance, featuring a filthy-mouthed British vampire prince and the dark witch he's captured from his enemy.

Hot AF!

This is for the Heart of Thorns/Heart of Fury/Heart of Flames trilogy:

Gabriel Redthorne, vampire prince and younger brother of Dorian, the vampire king. Gabriel is the most ruthless of the Redthorne brothers, and with good reason. He leaves a long trail of death and destruction behind him and isn’t afraid to get his hands dirty. He kind of prefers it sometimes. When his king needs his help to destroy an enemy to their bloodline, Gabriel’s all in. He doesn’t trust the witch Jacinda, but she’s the only one who can help him maneuver through all the terrible places to find what he’s looking for. Fighting it every step of the way, Gabriel’s attraction to Jaci is inconvenient. Jaci feels the attraction as well, but she’s better off dodging the vampire prince who mistrusts witches, yet is using her to hunt down some of the bad guys. What Gabriel doesn’t know is just how close those monsters are to Jaci. She’s got a few secrets of her own, and as their journey commences, they will be revealed.

When Gabriel and Jaci give into their lust, it is hot AF! But when they both accept their feelings for one another, heaven—and hell—help anyone who tries to harm either of them. The worlds they travel through and the witches, demons, and other monsters that cross their paths are no joke. This is a test of their will and love of family.

This series was intense to say the least. Sarah Piper packs this story with lots of action, plenty of heat, and another dirty talking vampire (thank you!). Shane East and Vanessa Edwin are phenomenal in their narration. Shane’s range of emotions in this series is heart stopping. He seamlessly flows from one character, feeling, attitude, and intensity. Shane owns this series, and I think he knows it. Most of the characters from Dorian’s trilogy is in this story. I’m still seriously crushing on Cole and Adrian.

A written and aural delight!

I just love this series and can´t get enough of the Redthorns! Sarah Piper keeps us engaged, captivated and thirsty for more with Heart of Fury, which picks up right where Heart of Thorns stopped. Gabriel is disappointed, angry and in a state of disbelief. He drowns his sorrows in alcohol and is almost inconsolable after Jacinda´s revelations.

The news that a very powerful demon succubus is on the loose in form of Jacinda´s banned to hell sister Viansa is causing all sorts of chaos. Gabriel and the other Redthorns need to seek out Jacinda again as she seems to be the only one able to stop Viansa. But, a powerful succubus is not easily stopped as she uses powerful mind controls, one of which could lead to a fatal outcome.

In Heart of Fury we get suspense, action, swoony moments, emotional confessions, more revelations, and passionate steam. There is a cliffhanger and I cannot wait to have Heart of Flames in my ears and thank the vampires, the wait is not long for the conclusion!

I can only always repeat #Shanessa (Shane East & Vanessa Edwin) are just a great audio pairing and always have me enthralled with their performances because every emotion, reaction or mood is on point. Every voice for each character is distinguished and has a different tone to it. Vanessa was giving me the chills as Viansa, I really felt her devious, evil vibes. The things Shane East says in this book still OWNS my ears. Pure perfection IMO.

I Just Can't Get Enough!

Gabriel finally lowered his defenses only to be betrayed by the witch who’d stolen his heart. Working together with Jacinda will be the only way to defeat the evil in their midst, but will he end up killing her or tying her down to the bed, never letting her leave. The second book in Gabriel’s series is just as hot as the first, showing us more of a duet who’s head-butting and threats, tenderness and passion, only keep the reader on a knifes edge, needy but also satisfied. Sarah Piper has once again brought me to tears, made me laugh, and fan myself with her wonderful storytelling. The narrators provide another stellar performance bringing these fantastic characters to life and making them their own. This is a story I could read/listen to multiple times and never get enough.

I'm seriously in love with Gabriel and Jaci

Gabriel and Jaci have so much passion, so much grit and determination, and so much hurt to overcome both individually and together. They are a formidable team, to be sure, along with all of the other Redthorne Vampires.

In this installment, Sarah Piper has given us more action and adventure, more hellfire and intrigue. I love that Gabriel and Jaci are finally working together - truly together - and are resolving the past hurts they've inflicted upon each other, as well as one's inflicted upon them.

Sarah Piper crafts such amazing stories. People say that the second book in a trilogy is always just one big bridge with no beginning and no end, but not in Sarah Piper's trilogies. She gives us a complete installment that feels like a story unto itself, even though we've got more to come! And thankfully there is not a long wait as Heart of Flames is coming soon.

Oh wow

This is one you gotta be careful listening to in public because it is hot hot hot! Like damn it’s hot and had me on the edge of my seat a lot of the time. I love Gabriel and wanted to hug him. He finally decided to lower his defenses and of course gets betrayed which was rough. He’s such an amazing character and I want so much more of him! I can’t wait for more of this series and this world because these characters are amazing!

Intense, intriguing and fantastic!

I love the entire Vampire Royals of New York series and especially vampire prince Gabriel Redthorne. Heart of Fury is the exciting continuation of his story and it’s an action-packed journey. Jacinda, the fiery witch that Gabriel is completely captivated with, dropped quite the bomb on him at the end of book one and he can’t quite get over the betrayal at first. His unquenchable love for her eventually wins out and he’ll do anything to help her. They both have powerful and dynamic families but at least Gabriel’s family is on his side. Big brother Dorian goes head to toe with him now and then but that’s nothing compared to Jacinda’s sister Viansa, the succubus, who wreaks havoc over Jacinda and all of New York in her quest for power.

Sarah Piper has created an amazing world filled with incredible, colorful characters and so much intrigue, suspense and steam. Gabriel and Jacinda have such an intense chemistry and their passion is off the charts. They also need each other’s help and strength to overcome past hurts and to face their current, seemingly impossible obstacles. In addition to the Redthorne family, Sarah also gives us Aiden and Cole who bring so much humor but also share a deep friendship that knows no bounds. I definitely want to know more of their stories. We are left with another cliffhanger that made me so anxious for the final book in this series. Yet another obstacle comes their way but you get the feeling that there is nothing they can’t overcome together.

This fantastic story is told so expertly well by Shane East and Vanessa Edwin. Their performances are sheer perfection and they bring to life every single intense emotion that Gabriel and Jacinda experience. They bring out the strength, vulnerability, fear, love and lust that these two share. Their voices for the side characters are also on point and I must say that they are both so good at being bad!

This story and these characters are so fantastic all around that I can’t wait to hear their conclusion. It’s certain to be a wild, scorching hot ride!

So so good

After finding out Jacinda was part demon Gabriel felt betrayed and turned against her . After Jacindas sister took over the bar and got Gabriel to do her bidding and Jacy put herself in harms way to save other Gabriel admitted he had loved her from the start a confession that all his family seemed to know before he did . I love the chemistry between Gabriel and Jacy and I can’t wait for the final book I reckon sparks are gonna fly big time .

another brilliant narration

I've said it before but I'll say it again, this book series has had top notch narration from this pair. this series is well worth the credits but I encourage you to start at book 1 this is book 5, as they all follow the story arc.
