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

What's that? Why that's my jaw dropped to the floor, excuse me while I pull myself together.

Tillie, Tillie, Tillie, you have done it once again lady. Heart Recaptured certainly lived up to its title. It was gritty, angsty, intense and downright sexy. Ky and Lilah will suck you into their world and you will never want to leave! 

This Hades Hangmen novel is certainly just as amazing, if not better, than the first in the series. In this book, we continue on where book one finished but with two new main characters. Them being none other than the very gorgeous manwhore himself, Ky (Hades Hangemn VP), and of course Lilah, Mae's sister from the cult in which they grew up in.

Do you know what I love about this MC series? That it is DIFFERENT from many of the other books in this genre. This story holds an original storyline and those who have read book one I'm sure would agree with me. The Hades Hangemen motorcycle club is based in Texas. They are outlaws, criminals,  and completely crazy at times. The one thing I love about these badass brothers is their alpha male tendencies. Yes ladies, total.alpha.males!

Ky is loyal to a fault, protective over his family and is a self confessed man slut. To put it bluntly, the man is sex on a stick and he damn well knows it. Now cockiness to the extreme is normally a big turn off for me, but no, Kyler could be as cocky as he wants and I would still melt into a puddle at his feet.  He's a charmer, a smooth talker and very popular with the ladies, specially the lickin' twins. He's content with his lifestyle choices and regrets nothing, except for maybe laying eyes on a pilgrim blonde during a rescue/cult massacre. Life took a turn for Ky after that night and it all had to do with a beautiful blonde, blue eyed Lilah.

For the first time in my sorry twenty-seven years on this godforsaken Earth, I care about something more than the club, the freedom of the road, and my brothers. - Ky

Lilah has been a part of the same cult as Mae since she was young girl, taken from her home. She believes in the prophet, holy and completely. She does not believe that it has all been lies and finds it very difficult to adjust to the outside world. She isn't coping, and the questionable acts she see's from the Hades Hangmen are not helping her situation. Can Ky help Lilah find her place in this dark, outlaw world? Or will Lilah fall back into the faith she has always believed in, leaving Ky, her sisters, and the club behind?

Without giving too much away, I highly recommend this book. I also recommend reading the first in the series before starting Heart Recaptured or this story will simply not make sense. Tillie has given us another compelling novel that is not to be missed. I CAN NOT WAIT for more from my Hades Hangmen family, Flame and Maddie are up next!
