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...

My Review:
I am convinced that this entire series is made to be an unpredictable roller coaster of emotions. A lot of books are like that actually, but this one took things to the extremes. Sharp turns and steep drops that made your stomach fly up into your throat and drop down into your butt. It was heartbreaking and disturbing. It was fascinating.

I can't even describe how much Lilah got to me. I had a hard time coming to terms with beauty being a curse. I had a hard time coming to terms with the fact that someone so pure and honest and beautiful was abused her entire life simply because she was beautiful and she couldn't control it. She was made to believe that her beauty made her disgusting- inside and outside as well. Out of the three sisters, I think Lilah was the one who held onto her faith like it was a life line. She truly believed everything that was said to her and all she ever wanted was to be saved and to finally be free. It was devastating to watch her crawl back into her she'll every single time she began to make progress. I couldn't imagine for the life of me how anyone could bring themselves to harm someone so gentle. Every time she or her sisters would flinch when someone got angry I felt a pang in my chest and I just wanted to hold them close.

Ky was perfect for Lilah. He was the loud to her quiet. The loud that she desperately needed to seek her out of her dark place. Ky is fun and wild and he loves to have a good time. Even though he isn't perfect, he had so many things to teach Lilah that she needed to know. I loved watching them get to know each other and putting their initial judgments about one another's lives.
