Heart of Eve is a great teaser for the Trilogy of Eve series, a seductively different take on a post apocalyptic / dystopian / dark erotic romance. This can be read as an introduction into Eve's life or read in-between Dead of Eve and Blood of Eve.

Heart of Eve brings us back to Father Rourke and Eve; a scene all about pure temptation. It is a drawn out seduction with true battle of the wil

It focuses on Evie the last female and Rourke an Irish Harley Davidson riding dreadlocked priest who vows to protect Evie but at the same time is fighting a growing sexual attraction towards her.

They are both hiding out in an underground bunker somewhere in the English countryside.
The Earth has been decimated by a plague leaving behind only 10% of the population.
The rest of the population are either dead or have evolved into a s

This short novella is a great start to Pam Goodwin's "Trilogy of Eve Series."

Father Rourke and Eve are stranded together alone in a bunker which puts Rourke's celibacy to the test. Eve is the only surviving woman after a plague all but destroys most humans and mutates the remainder. When they do venture out of the bunker Rourke must protect Eve from the so called aphids. The story almost feels like you're watching a Stephen King movie. Of course LUST is Rourke's biggest challenge.

"She was my escape from isolation of this brutal world. Even if it meant challenging the celibacy I'd desperately held my entire life."

This book was quick, hot, and so deliciously good. If this is only a quick taste of what this series is going to be I can't wait to read the rest of the books in this series.

I loved reading Heart of Eve by Pam Godwin. I am a huge fan of Evie and the Trilogy of Eve series. This scene took me back to the very beginning and I loved seeing Father Rourke with Eve. I loved reading about his temptation and how things unfolded between them. Even if you have never read this trilogy you can enjoy the heart, struggle and steam!

Heart of Eve is a short novelette which introduces the Trilogy of Eve series. Heart of Eve takes places in Europe during a time where an epidemic hit, leaving ten percent of humans, the rest mutated, and only one woman- Evie alive in the world.

Evie is a bold character. She knows how to handle guns and knives, she's direct, you always know how she feels and what she's thinking. Simply put- I like her. Her partner in crime is Roark.

Roark, is a hot priest with a sexy build not only battles monste

If Pam Godwin plans to use this quick little novella as a gateway into the Trilogy of Eve, she has definitely succeeded with this reader. I'm totally intrigued and cannot wait to read this series. It's seductive, sensual, and downright sinful! Literally sinful! The hero in the novella is a priest! He struggles with his attraction to our heroine, Eve.

Her eyes fluttered open. “I’ll ruin you, Roark.” I’d never wanted to be ruined so thoroughly in my life, but I would wait for God to give me som

I first read Heart of Eve in the For the First Time anthology released earlier this year.

This short story is the priest's (Roark) pov from the time he spent in his bunker with Eve from Dead of Eve. I strongly suggest it's read first but if you choose not to you can still easily follow.

Since Eve is the last female on Earth, Roark has made a vow to protect her. Not just from the creatures but also from men. But being in confined quarters is seriously testing his vow of celibacy. When he finally gi

Heart of Eve by Pam Godwin
Evie & Rourk
WHAT A GREAT INTRO

This is from Pam's Dead of Eve Trilogy. It's from the first book, Dead of Eve. It's from Rourk's POV when he meets Evie and they're staying together in his underground bunker. I am in love all over again!

Rourk is an Irish Priest stuck with the last healthy woman on earth after the plague. He's celibate at the moment, but for how long? He's constantly tempted and having dirty thoughts about Evie and what his body would like to do to hers. Go

5/5 stars

This can be read first, as an introduction to the Eve trilogy, or it can be read in between books 1 & 2. This short story takes place in the first book, “Dead of Eve.”

In this dystopian story, there was a worldwide plague over a year and a half ago that decimated the population. No children or elderly survived neither did any women, except for one. Roark is a Catholic priest and the only woman to survive the plague is Eve aka Evie. As fate

If I am ever tempted to read another priest romance, then it's going to be by one of my favorite authors.

I've been savoring this trilogy for the current Fall season, and I am so glad that I did. Just like all of her other works, Pam draws you into this dystopian tale of an Adonis-like priest and the last of the female race. This novella is only the beginning to what I know will be an amazing journey and I can't wait to fall under the trance of hearing Connor Crais and Michelle Sparks again. I l

What a fantastic introduction to the series where we find out about two very interesting characters Evie and Roark.
Roark is trying hard to stick to his vows of celibacy but somehow in the madness he's survived a saviour comes to him in the form of a beautiful woman Evie who tempts him beyond what he thought possible. They form a special bond that both of them need and they find themselves drifting closer and closer together until neither of them can stop the intense attraction which burns within

This is such a great introduction into the Dead of Eve trilogy. But if you want to read it where the storyline fits in the trilogy, then read it after book one, Dead of Eve.

This takes us back to when Evie (Eve) was living with Father Roark in a bunker in England after a worldwide plague has killed all the women on the planet and is told from his POV.

I loved being inside Roark's mind as he struggled with his vow, his thoughts about Evie, and what he felt during his first time. Reading this shor

Pam Godwin can make me love anything!

I fell in love with Pam Godwin after reading Beneath the Burn. I don't normally read post apocalyptic genre, but she made me love it. This novella is currently free so why not try it if you've never read her work. It also includes the first couple chapters of Dead of Eve.

Good addition

I really enjoyed his POV and how conflicted he really is. Evie should have been honest with her feelings so he could deal with it better. OverAll this was a nice addition to the trilogy.

7/10: Good solid read, something to get your teeth into.

She was my vow. Mine to protect. She was my strength. Mine to love. She was my heart. Mine to fight for.

This short novelette is meant to be an introduction into the Trilogy of Eve. It serves its purpose. We get a little into these characters and the world around them. It seems this is a post apocalyptic / dystopian book.

I enjoyed the characters. Which happen to be a priest and the woman he saved/saves, which is the only woman left after a plague. It is just an intriguing story line.

The only issue I have is the very little bit we get into this world. That had me slightly confused. I personally wou

Heart of Eve can either be read as an introduction to the Trilogy of Eve or as a bonus between books 1 and 2. I read it as an introduction the the trilogy. I haven’t read a lot of paranormal stories so I am always cautious about them and this one is actually free so it worked out perfectly! It is a short quick read that will keep you on your toes! A little bit of seduction into an extremely off the charts steamy scene!!! It gives you a little bit of the paranormal background but not a lot. I am ...more
