Is the truth really worth dying for?

Becoming a bodyguard isn’t exactly on Yael’s list of dream jobs. In fact, he’s much better at killing than he is at saving people. But when the most powerful witch Crone in the Americas asks him for a favor, he isn’t left with much of a choice. And the worst part? His new client doesn’t believe in magic and she’s human.

Every book in this series just gets better and better. Amanda Pillar’s attention to the smallest of details brings her characters to life. Every one of their emotions and actions seem like a perfectly choreographed dance leading up to an incredible ending that will leave readers screaming, “Encore! Encore!”

ASCENDING PASSION starts out slowly with a little comedy from the most powerful witch in America! But even her light-hearted banter has a serious side as she encourages (read that: gives him n

Awesome PNR Series

One of my favorite PNR series. I think this might be the best of the four so far. I can’t wait for the next one.

Each book gets better and better, in this fourth book you get to follow Yael and his beautiful witch, who thinks she is human nonetheless. Lots of laughs in the beginning, full of light-hearted banter. The most powerful witch in America asks Yael to be a bodyguard for her granddaughter, Rowan, while she goes on a archaeological dig in Egypt, he agrees hoping to find redemption along the way. Yael used to be my least favorite character, but this book changed my opinion of him. He is

Touchdown! Amanda jumps right over gold and into platinum. If you're looking for an action packed, adrenaline pumping, heart pounding, pulse racing, jaw dropping, page flipping bombshell. Congratulations my friends, you've just sunk neck deep in it. This baby hooks you from the start and reels you in for the duration. Nah, you won't be able to put this baby down. Wrangling through the trials and tribulations trying to get one step ahead and coming up short. A throng o

“Seeing is believing and still, doubt what you see." That seemed to be Rowan's motto. What a difficult woman! With a strong will and hidden desires, she was taking down Yael’s defenses. He was her protector and the fallen angel knew what his heart wanted but, was he enough for her? Could he choose his destiny, or all would be lost for him? Interesting the demon characters that had their own role in the story. Enlightening and entertaining the search for the artifact and the history behind. Amuse ...more

This series is a firm favourite of mine. Yael and Rowan's story is a fun read with plenty of twists. Despite there is a little bit of sadness at the start of the novel as Rowan grieves her fiancé, humour really fills the pages along with the intrigue and suspense involved in searching for another piece of Heaven's Heart.

I loved that their treasure hunt took them to Egypt and to an active archaeology site. I like Egyptology but I really love reading about the early digs there and the superstitio

Another fantastic instalment in this kickass series.

When we met Yael in the previous books I would have happily told you he was probably my least favourite character. This book completely changed my perspective of him for the better. I will admit that Rowan’s blinkered was drive me a little potty...but that was the point..her inability to accept what was right in front of her face, made this all the more a great story.
The plot is thickening and the pieces are in place for a big kick ass reveal

Heaven's all good...Hell's all bad...but not really! Throw together a fallen angel and a most powerful witch who doesn't even know she's a witch, and watch the sparks fly. Add in a few more fallen angels, Lucifer, Hades, and scores of demons; stir in curses protecting a pharaoh's tomb; mix well with the 2nd piece of Heaven's Heart and you have a heck of a story to tell. And then there's the sexual tension...WOW!!

Amanda Pillar has done it again! This series is fantastic fun with more twists and t

OMG this book started off slow it needed to because unlike the rest of the characters in this series Rowen isn’t a believer of anything other than her work. She’s just a plain old boring human!!! Yeal on the other hand he’s one of the fallen darts and he’s not so friendly. But as the story moves along you’ll find yourself enjoying the read and watching the characters blossom especially Rowen. If you love ancient history especially ancient Egypt you love this story. The book has an ending I didn’ ...more

Ascending Passion is Book 4 in the Heaven's Heart series. Another awesome entry in this series. Yael (a fallen angel) and Rowan (a witch but she doesn't know it and does not believe in magic) story is filled with action, strong characters, magic, curses, suspense, passion, romance, excavating an Egyptian tomb. The storyline is well written and intriguing with very well developed/interesting characters. Looking forward to the next in series. This is one fantastic story which I highly recommend. R ...more

What another fabulous instalment in the lives of these angels. Despite not wanting a bodyguard gig, Yael taken on the request from the most Powerful Witch in America to protect her granddaughter. What ensues is not quite what he expected. Rowen uncovers a lost tomb and then all sorts of magical things happen to them. I totally love these stories and look forward to each new one as it is released. Grab a copy and lose yourself in the world of angels, demons, magic and some mayhem. Highly recommen ...more

No spoilers of any kind included.
So all I’m going to say about Ascending Passion is I thought it was awesome.
Amanda Pillar is an amazing story weaver.
Her books always hook me before I even get to the second chapters which is why she will always be on my favorite authors list.
So I am going to say heck yeah I do most definitely recommend this book but if you haven’t read any of the books before this one then I highly suggest that you do.

I continue to love this series more and more. The story of Rowan and Yael had so much growth not only the two of them as characters but then story as well. There may just be more to Heaven's Heart then just a quest of punishment and the more you learn the more you question who is truly evil. Also loved that this one had so much history in it. With Rowan going on an excavation you get to learn alot about Egyptian history. ...more

I've loved this series from the start and this new book is no different. Yael was one the most difficult of the fallen for me to identify with, because he's always been shown to be so prickly and abrupt. In this book, his characters is developped and explored and I finished up really liking him. Rowan has always had my vote, and in this story she really comes into her own. A little bit more of Trick and things would be perfect! ...more

This book takes place in Egypt, with a team of archeologists trying to find a specific artifact. Rowan has lived her life by living off of her gut instinct. Yael is hired to be her body guard, but can he keep her safe? This book adds on to where the other books have lead to. It keeps you intrigued!

Yael has previously come across as a bit of an ass in the earlier books and so it was eye-opening to find out what was going on behind the scenes with him and just what made him tick. This whole book was fantastic from beginning to end. I love a good bit of Egyptology and this nailed it for me.
