Heaven's Heart #3

Winged Passion

Rate this book
Once an angel, now a blood slave.

Seraphina would do anything to protect her fellow Darts—even become a blood slave. But can an angel survive living in the depths of Hell, surrounded by demonic killers?

Trick’s entire life is a lie, which is exactly how he likes it. Ruler of the Halcyon Guild, he is one of the most powerful demons in Hell. But for the first time in centuries, he’s been outwitted—and by a damned angel.

His bad luck doesn’t end there. Hades has a mission for the guild: one only Trick and Seraphina can complete. The catch— they have to complete it within a week or their lives will be forfeit.

Can Seraphina and Trick set aside centuries of prejudice and work together, or will their pride see them both destroyed?

Amanda Pillar is back and her third book in the Heaven’s Heart series has me once again singing her praises as an author to take note of! Remember when paranormal romances had action, adventure, passion and characters that were so strong, so dimensional, you could swear they would jump out of the pages they live in? You know, the ones that become real in your mind and are unforgettable?

Get ready to meet Seraphina and Trick, Hell’s Odd Couple who will both fight to the bitter end or team up and fight to survive, because they have one week to complete a mission for Hades or die trying. Can an angel enslaved by a demon whose life is a total lie outwit him at his own game?

WINGED PASSION is the whole paranormal package, sensual tension, witty banter and two kickass characters who try their hardest not to fall for each other. Trick definitely has that bad boy vibe going for him, but he also has a few secrets up his sleeve. Seraphina took the angelic fall for her fellow angels, and finds herself enslaved to the hottest demon around. A true opposites attract story or just a desperate couple looking only to survive and possibly enjoy what could be their last days?

From the brutal opening pages to the ultimate twist at the end, this one deserves to be on every paranormal readers shelf along with the rest of the series!

I received a complimentary copy from Amanda Pillar!

This is a the third fantastic instalment in the Heaven's Heart Series... if you have not read the previous two books
Deadly Passion: Heaven’s Heart #1
Benevolent Passion: Heaven’s Heart #2
Then not only are you missing out on the first two fantastic instalments but bucketloads of kick ass story, brilliant world crafting, character building and a whole lot of romantic and smexcy good times!!

You could red this book as standalone... BUT.. why would you!! 😈😈
The focus on this book is the secretive Trick, leader of the Halcyon Guild, finding himself down a angelic blood slave he agrees to have Seraphina, a fallen angel and fellow 'dart' to take over Z's contract. His life is all about keeping the guild running and maintaining control over his guild.... and stopping them from eating each other's pets! 🤣🤣

For Seraphina, finding out that demonic guild life is not what she expected, that demons aren't what she expected and after being set a deadly task by the god of the underworld, tracking down a mythological artefact and stealthily liberating it from its owner that Trick is not what she expected either. As the two race against time they are drawn closer and closer together.

When we met Trick in book 1, I hoped he would have a book of his own... I was drawn to his character and knew there was more to him than meets the eye...and I'm happy to say he is paired up brilliantly with Seraphina... they are true opposites but they are brilliant together.

Their banter, chemistry and interactions were perfectly created. Having suffered somewhat similar histories and being made to feel 'less' by people who are meant to love them, allowed them common ground. Both our leading lady and leading man are witty, clever and controlled. But also filled compassion and sacrifice for others... which are fundamental themes that run through this book.
This series grows in strength to strength, I have loved every book in this series and this book is no different. I dove in and did not put it down! This book and it's wonderful wordsmith of an author, checked all my book pimping great read boxes 🙌🏻💯💯💯

Angels, demons, witches and gods... whatever your craving for flavour wise in paranormal romance... this series has you covered.

Winged Passion

Fantastic and fun! A great addition to the series that focused on Trick and Seraphina. I really enjoyed learning more about them and reading their journey together.

This is book 4 and I am so delighted that we have not had too long to wait in between the books of this series. I totally fell in love with as soon as I read Deadly Passion and not too long ago, Benevolent Passion came out.

This year is shaping up really nicely and a big thank you to Amanda for the ARC.

In this book, we get to have Trick and Seraphina's story. We have known both of them since book 1, but here they are joining forces. To be fair, this was set up at the end of Benevolent Passion so I knew it was coming.

Going back to the series, I want to make sure to recommend that you start from Book 1, it gives all the background info needed to enjoy the book and get the know the characters quite well. I mean, if you do want to read it as a stand alone, I do believe it is possible; however, a lot of important bits will be unclear and IMHO, as a reader you would lose out a bit.

I say, start from book 1 and really, they are enjoyable entertaining reads and they are quick to finish, so if you have a concern that they will take too long to read then rest easy.

So back to the book, we are still more or less following on the trail of the missing Heaven's Heart but Trick and Seraphina get sent on a tricky mission by Hades (yup that Hades!!) and all I can tell you is that it is not easy.

I really liked Trick from book 1 and I am glad that he gets his own story and we get to know more about him. There are some surprises that even I did not see coming (so kudos for that!!) and I just loved it.

I am not going to get into details because, well spoilers and you know me; I try not to ruin your fun reading, but just as the other 2, Winged Passion was a great read and I loved every second of it. To be honest, I have grown very attached to the characters and as we go, I am looking forward to the next book.

Now, I know already who the main will be for the next one and based on what I read here, I am curious about how the story will turn out.

That is going to be tricky!

I cannot wait to see what Amanda has in store for us.

If you have already read the first two books of the series, then I can assure you that you will love this one too! If you haven't and you are discovering the series for the first time with this post, then I promise you that you are going to get hooked like I did and I encourage you to start from Book 1.

You can trust me on that.

As you can imagine, I am going to very highly recommend Winged Passion to you all, and I do hope that you love it as much as I did!

Cannot wait for book 4. Let me know what you think!

Finally the one I have been waiting for Trick and Seraphina!! Amanda Pillar did not disappoint on this one, she really hit this one out of the park. Seraphina knew what needed to be done and did it, she sacrifice herself and ended up finding her match. Trick really tried to fight it, but Seraphina took him down! I was surprised to find Trick to be more of a good soul than I originally thought.

This tells a story of a impossible mission given to Trick and Seraphina in an even more impossible time frame, a week. They really use all the tricks to pull it off. Trick is the perfect cure to Seraphina's horrible ex problem and I was happy to see how that particular story arc ended.

By far, the funniest of the series so far. I can't wait to see what's next.

Holy Hell what a truly amazing read this book was Amanda Pillar killed it, this book deserves more than 5 stars.
The time line is fast but the story is paced just right. The characters well if you’ve been reading the series they are growing and finding out that sometimes what we are told and taught isn’t always true. They are just amazing characters to read about.
Trick man that guy has got to be more than what we are reading his got to have a secret there somewhere. 🤭
Seraphina is a great strong female that will gladly kick your butt if required hell she’ll even try to do the impossible and almost succeed. 🤭
Hades man I just want to meet the guy and say Hi even if I am shaking in my boots.
This series started off great but with each new book it just keeps getting. I really cant wait to get my hands on the next book.

Seraphina knew her sacrifice was going to dark her soul, but she was decided to fight and not submit. But, who would think the Master of the assassin guild was going to challenge her resolve? With his lot Trick had made his choices and gained. Powerful and resourceful now he had to struggle with his feelings for the fallen angel, please Hades and avoid death. Who would think there would be so much drama? Seraphina and Trick were a match made in Hell, pun intended, and they had their hands full. Liked their characters and their intense feelings and emotions for those they cared for. Intriguing plot development with suspense, good primary and secondary characters, magic, mystery, romance, passion and a half truth that arise doubts. Who, really, were the bad guys? Each time the series gets better!

The Heaven's Heart series goes from strength to strength.

This installment was more fun and lighthearted in tone. The witty banter and innocent moments between Trick and Serpephina made their story very sweet and charming.

Trick's character surprised me. I hadn't expected him to turn out to be such a good soul. He was the perfect antidote to Serpehina's horrible ex and I was gratified to see how that particular story arc unfolded in the end.

I loved the idea of mythical, magical artefacts and having to track them down. It made for high adventure with lots of magic and disappearing tricks.

This was a great read, highly addictive and unputdownable.

I can't wait for the next adventure!

This third installment is even funnier than the others. It tells the story of a Seraphina and Trick as they are given an impossible mission and only a week's time to do it in. Seraphina is strong but also kind (think Wonder Woman here guys) and Trick is the funniest hero I think we've met yet. He's so unapologetic. I just love it!!
Anywho, you guys should check out the series. Everybook ups the intrigue about what is actually going down and who the fuck stole heaven's heart.
So for all of you that hate me for those, maybe you should go try out Amanda's stuff. She's nicer than I am--plus there's sexy times in every book 😜

This book was fantastic!
I absolutely love this series each book just get more and more awesome.
There’s so many surprises hidden within this story that I actually felt like I was sitting inside a huge whirlwind.
I’m impatiently waiting for the next book in this series because I guarantee it’s gonna be a shocker.
But anyway yes I definitely do recommend this book but if if you haven’t read the the first two books in this series then I highly suggest that you do that way you don’t get confused with what’s happening and who’s who.

Demotion from being an angel means more than just losing your job and being placed in a less prestigious position. It can mean you are dismissed from being a warrior protector of the Sanctum...and being punished hurts.

This is such a fantastic series that each book draws you in more and more. I highly recommend you start from the beginning. It's definitely a different take on the eternal battle of Heaven and Hell, Angels vs. demons.

I received and ARC of this ebook, and I absolutely loved it!

Fabulous. This time we have a new fallen angel to follow. Seraphina exchanges herself for Z as Trick’s blood slave, allow Z to stay with Peony. As usual life is never easy when Trick is involved. Hades sets the two of them a task to be completed in a weeks time. All is not as it seems though. To find out what happens grab your copy, your favourite beverage and curl up in your favourite reading spot and become lost in another world. Highly recommend.

If I could give this book more than 5 stars I would do so gladly. I adore this series, but this one in particular is breathtaking. Seraphina was always a little aloof and mysterious and I found it a little hard to intergrate her properly, but in this one she really comes into her own, and combine that with the most intriguing demon ever and it's a real roller coaster of a read. Extremely fast paced and full of suspense, I found this book impossible to put down.

I just love this series. The wity humor is on point. The romance is at the perfect speed, a build up to an amazing moment. I loved getting to learn more of Trick's life and history and why he is the way he is. Oh and you love all the nicknames he tries to give Seraphina they will have you cracking up. Amanda doesn't disappoint with a twist you never see coming. Last but most importantly I loved the twilight references, had me crying I was laughing so hard.🤣

This is the third book in the Heaven's Heart series and focuses on Seraphina and Trick. I really enjoyed how funny Trick was and how Seraphina handled him. The characters and world building are perfect and their growth works perfect with the timeline. I can not wait to see what is in store for the next book. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

This book was awesome! I stopped in the middle of one book so I could continue this series as soon as I got my hands on it. This book had some unexpected twists with the characters. It was great seeing the relationship grow with the 2 main characters. Definitely worth the read!

This series just keeps getting better and better! I guessed from the start who Trick was and flew through the book trying to get to the reveal and I was not disappointed! I love this series and I can’t wait for the rest.

Still obsessed with angels in urban fantasy and these are some of the hottest. Also genuinely interesting characters and I'm loving each character arc as it builds on the story.
