Publisher's Summary

A fortuitous encounter. A meeting that should never have happened.
Many years ago, two children from completely different worlds forged a connection, a fateful connection, an unbreakable bond that would change their lives forever...
Salome knows only one way to live - under Prophet David’s rule. In the commune she calls home, Salome knows nothing of life beyond her strict faith, nor of life beyond the Fence - the fence that cages her, keeps her trapped in an endless cycle of misery. A life she believes she is destined to always lead, until a horrific event sets her free.
Fleeing the absolute safety of all she has ever known, Salome is thrust into the world outside, a frightening world full of uncertainty and sin; into the protective arms of a person she believed she would never see again.
River ‘Styx’ Nash knows one thing for certain in life - he was born and bred to wear a cut. Raised in a turbulent world of sex, Harleys, and drugs, Styx, unexpectedly has the heavy burden of the Hades Hangmen gavel thrust upon him, and all at the ripe old age of twenty-six - much to his rivals’ delight.
Haunted by a crushing speech impediment, Styx quickly learns to deal with his haters. Powerful fists, an iron jaw, and the skillful use of his treasured German blade has earned him a fearsome reputation as a man not to be messed with in the shadowy world of outlaw MC’s. A reputation that successfully keeps most people far, far away.
Styx has one rule in life - never let anyone get too close. It’s a plan that he has stuck to for years, that is, until a young woman is found injured on his lot...a woman who looks uncannily familiar, a woman who clearly does not belong in his world, yet a woman he feels reluctant to let go...

Warning ~ Not For the Faint of Heart!

Wow! What an emotionally charged story!

I fell in love with the story and look forward to listening to the rest of the series; however, this was one of the darkest MC's I've listened too so far. It may not be for everyone.

Tillie Cole did an amazing job creating a heart wrenching story that captures the essence of the MC world, and the horrors of a depraved fanatical religious cult. Told from two POV's from different worlds, we follow the characters as they are reunited by chance, deal with the horrors from their past, hang on to each other with everything they have, and what one man will do to keep the love of his life.

Some spoilers:
Styx's whole life has revolved around the Hades Hangman MC. This club doesn't hold back, it's tough, crude, does illegal activities, and all the sex, drinking, and killing has shaped Styx's into one of the toughest MC's Prez. Due to a speech impediment, he's only been able to talk to three people, his dad, best friend and the young girl he's been obsessed with every since their unexpected meeting years ago. Because he doesn't talk around others, he's earned the scary reputation as the Hangman's Mute.

Mae was raised by a fanatical religious group, and due to her beauty, she was deemed a "cursed." As one of the cursed, it was believed they would more than likely sway a man from their righteous path. Due to these wrapped views, she suffered many horrors from an early age. Fearing for her life, she made a desperate attempt to escape, and was hurt badly. Barely alive, she found herself at the Hades Hangman's MC. Recognizing each other from years ago, a bound between Mae and Styx starts to grow. Styx would do anything to protect Mae, and she's never felt safe except with Styx.

While the journey for these characters was hard, intense and at times not easy to listen too, I found myself totally engrossed and unable to stop listening. The characters and plot were well thought out, developed, and had twist all through the story. This was one of the best MC's I've listened too; however, I have to warn you, it's dark, unapologetic, full of bad language, and has sexual abuse, but it's a story that will stick with you well after you finished it.

J.F. Harding and Annie Green's performance was AWESOME. Due to one of the main characters, this was not an easy story to narrate, but this dual nailed it. They really brought this story to life!

Definitely worth a credit!

Not for the faint of heart

This MC romance is definitely hard core. Women are bitches, there are club whores, there's gun running, torture and murder. Unfortunately, that's not the worst of it.There is also a look into a religious cult that santions rape of 8 yr old girls. If you are sensitive or gave triggers, this isn't for you. That being said, there are also some wonderful characters that develop beautifully throughout the plot. The thesis seems to be that the human soul can overcome unbelievable adversity. Worth a credit, in my book.

pure filth and a bit of fun.

okay it's not the best bit of writing ever, and it did make me laugh at points unintentionally due to the cheesy writing, but I liked it full of sex and fighting. great!
