Damnable Grace (Hades Hangmen, #5) by Tillie Cole
Five Royal Crowns
EVEN THE BROKEN, THROUGH LOVE, CAN FIND GRACE…
Secrets never stay hidden.
The burden of guilt never lifts from the heart.
Born and raised in The Order of David, Sister Phebe knows nothing but cult life. Head of the Sacred Sisters of New Zion, Phebe was groomed from childhood for one purpose: to seduce. Prized as a harlot, as a New Zion whore, Phebe is taken from the doomed cult by Meister, the notorious leader of the Aryan Brotherhood. Taken as his possession. Taken to be the woman who will obey his every sexual demand. Under his heavy hand, Phebe finds herself in a place much worse than she could ever have imagined… with absolutely no one to help. And no glimpse of hope.
Xavier ‘AK’ Deyes is content with his life as Sergeant-At-Arms of the Hades Hangmen. Leader of the infamous ‘Psycho Trio’ and ex-special ops sniper, AK knows how to fight. Experienced in warfare and schooled in military operations, AK is vital to the Hangmen. When his Vice President needs help retrieving his missing sister-in-law, Phebe, from a Klan-funded trafficking ring, AK volunteers to go in. AK remembers the red-head from New Zion. Remembers everything about her from the single time they met—her red hair, blue eyes and freckled face. But when he finds her, heavily drugged and under Meister’s control, her sorry condition causes him to remember more than the beautiful woman he once tied to a tree. Saving Phebe forces hidden demons from his past to return. A past he can never move on from, no matter how hard he tries.
As AK fights to help Phebe, and in turn she strives to help him, they realize their secret sins will never leave them alone. Kindred broken souls, they realize the only way they can be rid of their ghosts is to face them together and try to find peace.
Despair soon turns to hope, and damaged hearts soon start to heal. But when their deep, painful scars resurface, becoming too much to bear, the time comes when they must make a heavy choice: stay forever damned; or together, find grace.
Dark Contemporary Romance. Contains explicit sexual situations, violence, disturbingly sensitive and taboo subjects, offensive language and very mature topics. Recommended for age 18 and over.
***NOT a standalone. MUST be read as part of The Hades Hangmen Series***
Another amazing book by Tillie Cole!
I breathlessly wait for each installment of the Hades Hangman series. It is one of the most original MC series I have ever read. Mixing a religious cult and a hardcore MC is insane! And Tillie weaves an amazing tale.
In this 5th installment, we get the story of Sister Phoebe. We have read about her already. How she was the Head Sister of the Order. She is carrying an insane amount of guilt on her blinded treatment of her sisters. Her heart is heavy with a secret that almost breaks her. Lucky for her, a Hangman caught her eye, and will save her or die trying.
Xavier ‘AK’ Deyes is the Sergeant-At-Arms of the Hades Hangmen. He has seen with his own eyes the devastation heaped on these women. He has helped bring them to salvation. There is one more he will save. He sees his brothers in love with these souls… and he wants the same. Carrying his own heavy heart with a shattered past, at the very least, he will save his Red.
Phoebe and Ak are haunted. They live in the past, and can not see a future. They live day by day…but they are not truly alive. The smiles they rarely smile are just a front. They are dedicated and find in each other, the same broken soul.
Their journey is like nothing you have ever read! So please read this asap!
