Spoilers ahoy. Consider yourself warned - I'm writing this review for my friends, friends that I don't want ever to put themselves through what I just put myself through.

The publisher's version of events:

She fled the horrors of a British workhouse, seeking refuge with the dark, moody aristocrat. Begrudgingly he sheltered her, fighting the fascination of her saucy innocence. But never did he imagine that the filthy urchin could be transformed into a bewitching
I don't have a lot of good things to say about A Fire in the Heart. My first Sutcliffe book was Dream Fever, and I can honestly say it ranks up there in my "all time favorites". I was so excited about this "new author" that I went and bought her entire backlist. I've now read 3 of her books, and Dream Fever is the ONLY one I've really liked. Love's Illusion was OK, but this one was BARELY readable. Only determination got me through this one. Was Dream Fever just a "one hit wonder""?

From the very start i was intrigued by this book- the writing style was exceedingly well, plot looked promising, nearly everything was going well. Then the writer made a grave mistake and everything fell apart. It looked like she didn't do much homework. The story/plot/character/almost everything did not coincide with the time frame mentioned in the book. People of that era simply do not behave or talk or react in that manner.

And why was every character so enamoured by the annoying foul-mouthed
I read this book back in the 90's, when it first came out. This is the kind of book that stays with you. I loved it then, and I love it now.

Although I enjoyed most of this book, I have got to say this book is very very long. Almost feels as though it dragged on unnecessarily. I did enjoy the way the two main characters interacted with eachother but I cant say I liked bonnie very much. She seemed very childish and annoying and by God I hated her accent! I also couldn't understand why everyone seemed to like her because she was not likeable. As for Damien I liked his character. He was believable and I almost feel like he deserved bett ...more

I loved this book.. It was one of the first book to make me cried back when I first read it when I was in high school.... It be good to read it again..
This is the book that got me hooked on romance novels! I need to read it again now that I am an adult!
Loved it-----very good book, and I couldnt put it down
I enjoy historical romances, and this was a pleasant read. The heroine got on my nerves a few times, hero was too kind to put up with her in my opinion. She was a horrible little imp, seduced easily into the aristocracy she reneged so much about and detested throughout the entire book. She - Bonnie - is not very likeable, so like a previous reader stated, I am not sure as to how she managed to have everyone so whimsically enthralled with her personality or presence. She seemed very hysterically ...more
Had to read it again. And even though it's full of racial and '80's writing (meaning sex terms) it was a whole lotta fun reading it again.
One of the first romance novels I read. I love it!

One of the all-time best romances. Bonnie Eden is a mysterious waif and Damien Warwick the moody earl who rescues her one night and whose well-ordered life is turned upside down. This story never gets old, no matter how often I read it. Heart-wrenching at times, funny at others, these characters from A Fire In The Heart will stay with you long past the end of the novel.
Leslie Rohrer
This is my all time favorite romance. Read it when I was young, and will never forget it! I'm going to have to get another copy as my sister kept our first one. One of her favs, too!
Hillary Seidl
This book was one of the first romance novels that I had ever read. I still love it to this day and read it at least twice a year.
Sandy Rogers
Pretty good read. I'm not much on "running away" and my my my, some people couldn't stop!!!!!
