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.

Review by Kristi Lynn

This was book 5 in the Hades Hangmen series. In this book we get Phebe and AK. These characters met in a previous book and the red headed siren has stayed with AK. Will AK be able to find and save Phebe? Will these two broken souls be able to heal and become whole?

What I Loved About This Book
Sweet mother of God and all that is holy!!! What did I just read?? I loved EVERYTHING about this book!!! It took me a bit to write this review because I could not wrap my mind around the story and these characters. This series has become one of my all-time favorites and Tillie Cole does not disappoint with this book. The story of Phebe and AK was raw, gritty, dark, painful, overwhelming, consuming, and bloody fantastic. It was an intense ride and left me breathless, with tears at times, screaming at my kindle, etc. I was gripped within these pages and wanted to savor every word. I found myself taking small breaks while reading because I did not want the book to end. Tillie brought out so many emotions in me as a reader and I was completely invested in this story. I fell head over heels in love with these characters. I love getting to see the other characters I know and to see what is going on with their lives. Getting a deeper dive in to AK and Phebe and all that they have endured was not easy. It was emotionally challenging for me but it is one of the reason I love Tillie and this series. You have to read it and you have to know the why’s and the how’s. This book and this series are not for the faint of heart. These books are dark and twisted, but they are so freaking fabulous. When a series gets to book five, you think you will start to see a repeat of what has already been written and that is not the case with these books. I find each out to be different and unique and that is a credit to Tillie and the way she tells a story.

What I Did Not Love About This Book
I loved every page and word of this book!

I give this book 5 stars!! This book and series is on my must read list!! If you like dark and emotional reads, this book and series is a must read!!

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.
