Even salvation can be delivered through the love of the damned

Beauty can be a curse.

Faith can be a cage.

Only love can set you free.

A few long weeks after being reluctantly ripped from the comforting embrace of her sacred prophets religious communethe only life she has ever knowna terrified Delilah is thrust into a world enveloped by evil and swimming in sin.

Steadfastly devout in her faith, and retaining the deep belief that her soul is innately tarnished as a branded Cursed woman of Eve, Delilah is determined to find her way home to her people in The Order and away from the corrupt and damned outlaw motorcycle clubThe Hades Hangmenwho hold her at their secluded compound for her protectiona 'protection' she strongly resents.

Delilah yearns to return home, convinced that only amongst her own people, and under the holy guidance of the Lords revealed prophet, can her Satan-spawned soul be truly saved. Conditioned her entire life to believe she is a witch... a life-long temptress the devils whore... Delilah increasingly resents her beautiful face, her shapely body and her sensuous effect on men. But when a man of the motorcycle cluba deeply sinful yet stunningly beautiful manis charged with her care, Delilah begins to see that this dangerous and moralless sinner from the 'outside' may offer her something she did not know could truly exist: unconditional love.

Kyler Ky Willis loves his life: a daily abundance of brotherhood, liquor, the freedom of the open-road andbest of allhis pick of hot women. Raised a biker brat and now VP of the most notorious MC in the States, Ky has no shortage of club sluts warming his bed; a situation he takes full advantage of until a certain blonde enters his life a gorgeous pilgrim-blonde he cant get out of his head a pilgrim-blonde he and his club recently-rescued from some backward religious cult and a pilgrim-blonde hes been ordered to keep the hell away from and his whorish hands off.

When yet another in a lengthy line of drunken blunders forces Ky to reluctantly take charge of the pilgrim-blondes care, he realizes that there could be more to this woman than just supermodel looks and a stacked set of tits. He begins to see that she could be the woman who could do the impossibletame his wild ways and capture his reluctant heart.

But the unyielding bonds of Lilahs past are strong, her people determined and, with a new Prophet in charge and hell bent on revenge, they are mightily reluctant to let her go...


I shifted my eyes to a silent and pensive Maddie who was sitting on her bed, her arms wrapped around her curled-up legs as I paced the dark hardwood floor. I continued. Where is Mae? I must speak with her at once!
Maddie sighed in exasperation and gazed longingly out of the single window of our small apartmentthe one we never ever left apart from to go to do our daily prayers by the river, escorted by Mae. Styxs apartment was above this so-called biker club in which we were incarcerated, The Hades Hangmen, whatever on Earth that was.
What I did know was it was a living hell in which we had been forced to exist after being ripped from our home, ripped from all we knew: the commune. The Order. The Lords Prophet. We belonged with Gods Chosen Ones. It was the only way to claim our salvation from being born of the devil, born as sinful seductresses. Instead, we had been plucked from our people and dropped into this den of evil. We did not know what had happened to our people, after these so-called Hangmen had fired on our brothers and sisters. They killed our prophet! All this just a few short weeks ago.
I hate it here. Hated every single thing about it: the daily sinful acts of debauchery taking place downstairs in that louche bar, the violence I witnessed, the guns, and especially the men. Especially him. Ky. The Hades Hangmen whore. The man who grinned at me whenever in my presence, licking his lips in that absurdly salacious way.
He made my skin shiver. He might be beautiful on the outside, all long blond hair and crystal-blue eyes, but he had a corrupted soul.
He cannot be trusted None of them could be trusted.

Ladies grab a box of Kleenex, seat back and enjoy the ride that is Tillie Cole.
This is the second book in the Hades Hangmen Series and is about our beloved bad boy Ky and the ever innocent Delilah.
Ky is the VP of the Hangmen and was taught from an early age that women were good for one thing and one thing only and after that just let 'em go. He has put this belief to use more times than not and never wanted to keep a woman around for love or kindness until he laid eyes on the beautiful Delilah. From that very first glimpse, he wanted her and knew that as innocent as she was, she would never want a man like him.
Delilah has spent her life in a very religious sect and knows that her looks are a curse and for that reason she prefers to avoid men at all cost. Since being rescued she has hidden out in a room to avoid being forcefully taken and receiving punishments. The Hades hangmen to her are the devil themselves and there is no way anyone could convince her otherwise.
These two come together after the prez, Styx, ask Ky to teach Lilah about the outside world. Ky  hates the idea at first as he knows that being around Lilah will only make him want her more. Lilah really doesn't want anything to do with Ky because he makes her feel things no man ever has, and in her world it is a sin to have these feelings.
The relationship between these two characters will grab your attention and hold you  tight and not allowing you to put the book down until you have read the last word. I got the reasoning behind Ky and made me love this man even more. The way he takes care of Lilah is both hot alpha and tender.  Lilah breaks my heart on more than one occasion as I can't imagine finding out what has been drilled into your head has basically been nothing but lies after lie. And then something big happened and I cried until my eyes were swollen. Those scenes were wrote with so much emotion that it makes you feel like you are right there in the mix of all the chaos, wanting to just reach out and hold this precious woman and take the hurt away.
The ending was perfectly written and upon reading the last word all I could do was say, DAMN, Tillie did it again! And that my dear ladies is she knocked a 5 star rated book out the park and made me crave more of her writing. It takes an epic writer to grab her readers every time the way she does, and Tillie Cole never fails to astonish me with her capabilities.
5 stars all the way and anxiously awaiting the next installment, which,  is about my man Flame ;-)
 I highly recommend this book to anyone that enjoys a great combination of both love, MC action,  and the angst that comes from tugging at your heart strings.
