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...

I really hate to admit it, but I stayed up until 4 AM reading this train wreck of a book. I suffer from insomnia so that’s not an uncommon thing, but still – ugh. There was so much I disliked about this book, I really don’t know where to start. Why did I just keep reading you ask? Did I mention it was a train wreck, so I just couldn’t look away.
Let’s talk about the Main Characters. I didn’t like either one of them. I love alpha male characters but Ky was just an ass and a man whore. His obnoxiousness level hits epic heights as evidenced by this statement:
“Hookers, drop your panties and wet those cunts. Your fuckin’ sex God has finally arrived”
Or this one:
“My Old Man’s words of wisdom came straight to mind: Pussies are to be licked good and fucked hard – never worshipped”
Sounds like a winner – not. Oh, and of course he has a 10 inch cock. Nothing OTT there. He also said “weren’t gonna” or “weren’t good” all the time. In my head he sounded like a cast member of the movie Deliverance. Yet he also used words like “stunning” to describe Lilah. I’m from the south so I can tell you with some authority that someone who says “weren’t gonna” isn’t going to call some chick “stunning”. He’s going to say she was “right purty”. He did lose some of his obnoxious ways as the book went on, thank goodness.
Lila was judgmental as hell, and dumb as a box of rocks. Yes she was brainwashed by a cult and I truly felt bad for her, but still she was the most unlikable h I’ve come across in a good long while. She comes from a cult full of pedophiles that repeatedly raped her from the age of 6 (starting with good old Dad), brutally killed her “sister” and yet she thinks the bikers are the ones going to hell. She spent almost the entire book wanting to just go back to her den of pedophiles and refused to listen to anyone who tried to tell her that the monsters were the men in the cult, not the bikers who were caring for her and protecting her. She also expected Mae to give up her life and go back to the brutal pedophiles so Lilah and her so deserving of salvation pedophile cult members could be “saved”. She did have the hots for Ky though so I guess we were supposed to see a glimmer of hope there. I’m not even going to put one of her quotes in, because almost every sentence out of her mouth pissed me off. I will put in a quote of Ky’s about Lilah, because it made me laugh with how fitting it was.
How the fuck does a bitch that hot be so fuckin’ psychotic?
The story line had several big craters of holes in it, which just added to my frustration. I seriously just wanted to chuck my iPad against the wall. You want to know the craziest thing though? I really want to read Flame’s book which means I actually have to give this book 3 stars.
