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 prophet’s religious commune—the only life she has ever known—a 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 club—The Hades Hangmen—who hold her at their secluded compound for her protection—a ‘protection’ she strongly resents.Delilah yearns to return home, convinced that only amongst her own people, and under the holy guidance of the Lord’s 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 devil’s whore… Delilah increasingly resents her beautiful face, her shapely body and her sensuous effect on men. But when a man of the motorcycle club—a deeply sinful yet stunningly beautiful man—is 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 and—best of all—his 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 can’t get out of his head… a pilgrim-blonde he and his club recently-rescued from some backward religious cult… and a pilgrim-blonde he’s 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-blonde’s 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 impossible—tame his wild ways and capture his reluctant heart.

But the unyielding bonds of Lilah’s 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…

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.

Another tear trailed down Mae’s cheek. “I have no idea how to make her and Maddie want this life. There is no more commune, no more Order. I am unable to help her… them. What will happen to them if they cannot adjust?” Her huge wolf eyes focused on me as Styx wiped at her cheeks with his thumb, his nose flaring with protectiveness. “I need your help, Ky. Not for you to make this even more difficult. If they left me, I do not know… I do not know…”

Styx turned Mae in his arms and she cried into his chest. His jaw clenched and he glanced in my direction.

Great. He wanted to murder me again.

Running my hands down my face, I jumped to my feet, and Mae lifted her head in surprise.

“I’ll keep the fuck away from Lilah. I swear,” I vowed.

Mae nodded, though her face remained blank. “Thank you.”

But Styx was still looking at me… and I knew that look. He was plotting something. I went to leave the room, when Styx cleared his throat, his infamous take-no-shit look on his face. Styx’s hands lifted to sign behind Mae’s back while her face was still tucked against his chest, her arms wrapped tightly around his waist.

Go find Lilah. Shell be down by the river or in the apartment. Its the only two places she ever goes. Tell her youre fuckin sorry for practically assaulting her tonight. Right?

I nodded my agreement rather than say it out loud. He obviously didn’t want Mae to overhear our “conversation.” A lift of his finger made me pause again, and I watched a smirk curl on his lips.

Im putting you in charge of her and I aint telling Mae. Lets call it your atonement for being a whore-assed fuck-up.

I rolled my eyes at his shit attempt at a joke, but I could tell my brother wasn’t fuckin’ around.


Heart Recaptured

5 beauty is not a sin stars!

Oh my heart I loved this! Yes, when it comes to Tillie Cole and MC books, or any book for that matter, I’m kind of biased cause I’m used to loving everything she writes and when you anticipate a book and it turns out to be fantastic, that’s the best feeling in the world.

This one picks up where It Ain’t Me, Babe left off, the club invaded the commune taking Mae’s sisters with them and now, Lilah and Maddie are trying to adjust to this brand new world they know nothing about.

Ky and Lilah’s story, that tiny glimpse was addictive. Ky is the classic MC VP asshole that will not commit to a woman. But usually those are the ones that fall the hardest. And fall he did. #TeamKy


My old man’s words of wisdom came straight to mind: Pussies are to be licked good and fucked hard — never worshipped. 

Lilah, Mae’s sister is just as clueless about the world as Mae was but the only difference is that unlike Mae who wanted to get away from a life with the commune and the prophet, Lilah  never wanted to leave.

“I wish not to be in this life, Mae. I am faithful to the prophet’s cause and nothing will change that.”

Heart Recaptured Ky and Lilah

Lilah not only has difficulty adjusting to this new life but Ky’s fixation with her is making her beauty is a sin alarm to go off. That is a huge part of the story. Lilah is basically brainwashed into believing that she’s cursed and this is not like a oh poor you, you’re way too pretty situation; this is a real on going mental and physical abuse that has really made her hate her beauty. And of course Ky’s constant flirting and commenting on it only made it worse. It’s hard to explain the situation to someone that hasn’t read the book but I loved the way it was explained, I felt for the girls and it filled me with rage to read about it.


To say that I loved them would be an understatement, I loved how them falling for each other was effortless and I fell in love with them just as easily. Nothing felt forced or too much, it was just right.

Honestly, hands down I love this series. Great characters, amazing writing, mind-blowing plot. What’s not to like?

Can’t wait for Flame’s story… seriously I can’t!
