4.5 Star Review by Jennifer Hagen

Delilah is one of the three cursed sisters that were saved from a religious cult.  Her sister, Mae, was featured in the first book of the Hade’s Hangmen series, and Mae is currently shacked up with the mute MC president, Styx.  The cursed sisters are all beautiful and were deemed temptresses by their cult prophets – hence the term “cursed.”  While in their cult they were believed to be the spawn of the Devil and those words still have Delilah believing their truth.   

Delilah was rescued from the cult and is currently residing at the MC clubhouse along with her other sister, Maddie.  Delilah is having a difficult time adjusting to life outside the cult sector.  Going from speaking religion in tongues to seeing tongues invade promiscuous women in the clubhouse is a drastic change for Delilah.  She and Maddie do not leave their clubhouse apartment, instead look from their window at their new life, wishing to go back to their old one where the ways of the cult were what they considered normal.  

Ky is the club vice president, and a self-professed whore.  He is living the words his late father constantly reminded him of:  Pussies are to be licked good and fucked hard – never worshipped.  Ky has never once come close to settling down.  He has a woman, or make that women, hanging on him practically all hours of the day and he takes full advantage of their offers.   As much as a pig as Ky was when it came to women, he earned points from me the way he always gave his mute president respect.  He is currently transfixed with dirty thoughts of Delilah.  It doesn’t help his wandering thoughts when he is put in charge of conditioning Delilah to the outside world. 

Delilah was sheltered so much in her cult that she doesn’t even know what coffee is!  She still places her trust in God and believes that the prophets will come for her and return her back “home” to the cult.  She doesn’t know how to live in this world without still focusing her attention on God and speaking in tongues and worshiping him – even though the words of the Lord were corrupted by the cult members and were lies.  Ky has a difficult time explaining to her that she was brainwashed. 

Ky and Delilah spend a lot of time together and Delilah begins to feel safe whenever she is with him.  He may be vulgar and lives the life of a criminal, but she sees beyond all that.

Things had changed so drastically in regards to this man.  My feelings were so strong that I almost could not stand it.  He was becoming the center of my world.  He was completely changing my life.

The MC believes that the cult is out of order following their deadly ambush on the cult fortress.  Little do they know what is happening…the cult is becoming larger and stronger than they could ever have imagined.  Rider (Prophet Cain) is still pining away for the woman that he lost to the MC president and is planning his revenge.   Revenge turns into war…war turns into rescue…rescue turns into salvation…salvation turns into despair.

And for the first time in a long fuckin’ time, I started to cry.

This book is not for the faint of heart.  I enjoy a good MC story and this went beyond my expectations, exceeding the first in the series.  There are several scenes of graphic violence and sexual violence.  If you can’t handle the f-word, then Ky isn’t the man the for you (according to my search feature it is used 523 times).   I loved seeing Ky accept his feelings of knowing that Delilah was going to be so much more to him.  He has a very brusque way of showing endearment towards Delilah, but in the life of the MC it is fully acceptable. 

In the first book I knew that Flame was going to pique my curiosity, and now we are able to see more of Flame and the demons that must constantly haunt him.  Flame’s story will be featured in the next installment of the Hade’s Hangmen.  I truly believe this man has a story that is going to pull at every emotional string in existence.



Mae! Get your fuckingirl under control, we need to split!The man with long blond hair who had killed Brother Noah, my redeemer, shouted behind Mae, his blue eyes harsh in his command. He kept watching me, his blue eyes intense. From the minute I had left the cell, he had stared at me, continued to stare at me still.
Maes dark lover whistled from beside him and indicated for us to follow with a wave of his hand, but fear seized my heart, and instinct caused me to flee.
Lilah!Maes voice screamed as I darted into the throng of terrified sisters. My head whipped from side to side as I tried to find a place to hide, and seeing an entrance to the forest, I lifted my feet and scrambled in that direction.
But before I had moved a few steps, a large body wrapped me in his arms and lifted me off the ground, preventing me from getting away.
I screamed and screamed as a strong, unyielding arm clad with leather wrapped around my waist. I was terrified, tears pouring down my face as his legs picked up speed and started running.
Pleaseplease let me go!I begged, but a mouth suddenly placed at my ear cut off my voice, long blond strands of hairnot belonging to mefalling on my cheek.
Nope. Youre coming with us, sweet cheeks, so stop trying to run this sexy ass away. Although, I could watch that fuckinperfect peach of a view all day long and never get tired of it. But Mae wants you at the club, so youre fuckincoming to the club.
My breathing hitched at how this blond outsider spoke to me and I froze in his arms, not daring to move, worrying that if I did, I might meet the same fate as the slain brothers on the ground. Then, as I carefully tuned my head, I saw who held me in his arms, carrying me as though I weighed nothingthe blond man from before. The one who kept staring at me like I was something he wanted to devour.
The same man, who when my eyes first met his, an ache throbbed within my chest.


Amazon & USA Today Best Selling Author, Tillie Cole, is a Northern girl through and through. She originates from a place called Teesside on that little but awesomely sunny (okay I exaggerate) Isle called Great Britain. She was brought up surrounded by her English rose mother -- a farmer's daughter, her crazy Scottish father, a savagely sarcastic sister and a multitude of rescue animals and horses.

Being a scary blend of Scottish and English, Tillie embraces both cultures; her English heritage through her love of HP sauce and freshly made Yorkshire Puddings, and her Scottish which is mostly demonstrated by her frighteningly foul-mouthed episodes of pure rage and her much loved dirty jokes.

Having been born and raised as a Teesside Smoggie, Tillie, at age nineteen, moved forty miles north to the 'Toon', Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, where she attended Newcastle University and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts honours degree in Religious Studies. She returned two years later to complete a Post-Graduate Certificate in Teaching High School Social Studies. Tillie, regards Newcastle to be a home from home and enjoyed the Newcastle Geordie way of life for seven 'proper mint' and 'lush' years.

One summers day, after finishing reading her thousandth book on her much loved and treasured Kindle, Tillie turned to her husband and declared, "D'you know, I have a great idea for a story. I could write a book." Several months later, after repeating the same tired line at the close of another completed story, she was scolded by her husband to shut up talking about writing a novel and "just bloody do it!" For the first time in eleven years, Tillie actually took his advice (he is still trying to get over the shock) and immediately set off on a crazy journey, delving deep into her fertile imagination.

Tillie, ever since, has written from the heart. She combines her passion for anything camp and glittery with her love of humour and dark brooding men (most often muscled and tattooed theyre her weakness!). She also has a serious side (believe it or not!) and loves to immerse herself in the complex study of World Religions, History and Cultural Studies and creates fantasy stories that enable her to thread serious issues and topics into her writing -- yep, there's more to this girl than profanity and sparkles!

After six years of teaching high school Social Studies and following her Professional Rugby Player husband around Europe, they have finally given up their nomadic way of life and settled in Calgary, Alberta where Tillie spends most of her days (and many a late night) lost in a writing euphoria or pursuing a dazzling career as a barrel-racing, tasselled-chap wearing, Stetson-sporting cowgirl... Ye-haw!
