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 redhead 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.
~ Maria’s Review ~
I just love the Hades Hangmen series. I thought author Tillie Cole had ruined me for any other books in this series after Souls Unfractured, but I was wrong. She continues to capture my attention, break my heart and have me believing in love all at the same time. Damnable Grace is a beautiful, heartbreaking story filled with hope, forgiveness and redemption. I loved it.
AK’s character is so well developed. He lets you in slowly. But once you’re in, you’re all in. He is gorgeous, dangerous, brooding and protective. Phebe may be my favorite of the women characters. A modern day Salome, Delilah and Mary Magdalene, without any malicious or evil intent. A beautiful seductress. A lost soul. Together, they find the hurt within each other that no one else can see, touch or understand. My heart hurt for both of them. I was angry for them. I wanted their pain to go away. I wanted them to find a HEA.
Author Tillie Cole has a unique way of bringing out my emotions. I laughed. I swooned, the sex is hot, not gonna lie. I got emotional and my heart pounded at times. I had to close the book and breathe. This series is so original in its premise. She is so skilled at bringing her characters to life. The author’s descriptiveness and development of story and character give a real feel to the incredible things they face.
Damnable Grace brings back the characters we love from the previous stories. I love that because even though this is AK’s book, the Hangmen are brothers. Thus, an integral part of the story. They enhance and add critical support to the plot.
The series is different than other MC Romances. I highly recommend it. If you like MC and or darker romance, give it a try. You should read in order to avoid spoilers and to understand and follow the bigger story arc that is in all the books. Looking forward to more from the Hades Hangmen.
After graduating from Newcastle University with a BA Hons in Religious Studies, Tillie followed her Professional Rugby player husband around the world for a decade, becoming a teacher in between and thoroughly enjoyed teaching High School students Social Studies before putting pen to paper, and finishing her first novel.
Tillie has now settled in Austin, Texas, where she is finally able to sit down and write, throwing herself into fantasy worlds and the fabulous minds of her characters.
Tillie is both an independent and traditionally published author, and writes many genres including: Contemporary Romance, Dark Romance, Young Adult and New Adult novels.
When she is not writing, Tillie enjoys nothing more than curling up on her couch watching movies, drinking far too much coffee, while convincing herself that she really doesn’t need that extra square of chocolate.
