Publisher's Summary

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 moral-less 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 LIKED THIS BOOK

The publishers summary is spot on. This is a very different MC series. Fitting that the MC's name is Hades Hangmen since they fight a religious cult. The KKK joins the cult in taking on Hades Hangmen.

I never give spoilers but I think people need a warning with this series. The cult, adult men, rape girls starting at the age of eight years old all in the name of religion. Of course, the men also have more than one wife.

This book sets up the rest of the series. It's dark, gritty, and sometimes sick. I cringed through parts of the book.

Ky is the VP of Hades and Styx best friend. Ky is charged with the task of watching Delilah. She's never been outside the fence of the cult so Ky starts taking her places around town so she can see what she's missed out on.

Tillie Cole has once again written an all consuming series. I also love her Scarred Souls series.

J.F. Harding, Bunny Warren and Biff Summers gave a fantastic performance.

This is absolutely worth a credit if you like dark and gritty.

Prepare ~ An Emotional Roller Coaster Ride!

Heart Recaptured is an intense, dark, gut wrenching story with little light, but like a moth drawn to the flame, I was helpless too look away, and found myself right there with the characters enduring each up and down. It's impossible to listen to this without feeling a world wind of emotions from anger, disbelief, sadness, disgust, frustration, to acceptance and love. The journey for these characters was not easy, at times, it was cruel, hard to bare, and some characters will be left with more scars than others. However, when they finally arrive at their bittersweet happy every after, you finally get to feel a sense of peace, acceptance and love.

The character development was great! There's both likeable and unlikable characters. Ky's the VP in the Hades Hangman MC, who lives hard, rides hard, and never considered being with just one women or having an "old lady." When he's assigned to care for one of the women rescued from the Commune, she will have him longing for more, and will bring out his protective instincts.

Lilah's been brainwashed by the Commune and truly believes in their teachings. Because of her beauty, she has been deemed a "cursed." As a cursed, it is believed she is Satan spawned and will tempt men from their righteous path. Under the Commune's wrapped beliefs, she will never be worthy of love, or allowed to marry. When she finds herself at the Hades compound, she has a hard time reconciling the life she grew up with against her new environment, and hangs onto her beliefs with an ironclad hold. Ky's been tasked to care for Lilah, and help her adjust to her new found freedom; however, with Lilah's deep seeded beliefs, Ky may never be able to get her to accept her new life.

This is the first audio I've listened to narrated by Warren and Summers, and they both did really good. Summer's delivering of some of the dialogue was actually funny, and I found myself laughing a few time throughout the story. Harding's performance is always great! I enjoyed the three narrator approach, and how it helped to separate the MC from the Commune.

While the story may be dark, the plot's well written, suspenseful, gripping and will have you hanging onto every word. Love It or Hate It! It's another unforgettable Hades Hangmen story that will linger with you well after you've finished it. I LOVED It, and found myself unable to stop listening. It was well worth the time!
