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 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.
Five Thrilling Stars! Phebe has been trained to be used by the men in control. She doesn’t enjoy it and has been hurt for most of her life. AK is the Hangmen’s Sergeant at arms, he is damaged and haunted by the demons in his past. AK is determined to get Phoebe back but will he be prepared for what he will find? This is a beautifully written story about two broken soles who are trying to heal each other. This story is dark, gritty, and not for the faint of heart. The characters connection is instant and genuine and I fell in love along with them. I was hooked from the first chapter and was unable to put the book down until I finished it! I found myself crying tears of sadness and tears of joy as I read throughout the book! The story is about finding hope when you think you lost all of it! I thoroughly enjoyed the book and will most definitely go back and read all of the other books in the series! This book is the fifth book in the Hades Hangmen Series and I can’t wait to see where Ms. Cole goes from here. I highly recommend this book!
