Damnable Grace by Tillie Cole BLOG TOUR!


Secrets never stay hidden.

The burden of guilt never lifts from the heart.

Born and raised in The Order of David, Sister Phebe knows nothing but cult life. Head of the Sacred Sisters of New Zion, Phebe was groomed from childhood for one purpose: to seduce. Prized as a harlot, as a New Zion whore, Phebe is taken from the doomed cult by Meister, the notorious leader of the Aryan Brotherhood. Taken as his possession. Taken to be the woman who will obey his every sexual demand. Under his heavy hand, Phebe finds herself in a place much worse than she could ever have imagined... with absolutely no one to help. And no glimpse of hope.

Xavier ‘AK’ Deyes is content with his life as Sergeant-At-Arms of the Hades Hangmen. Leader of the infamous ‘Psycho Trio’ and ex-special ops sniper, AK knows how to fight. Experienced in warfare and schooled in military operations, AK is vital to the Hangmen. When his Vice President needs help retrieving his missing sister-in-law, Phebe, from a Klan-funded trafficking ring, AK volunteers to go in. AK remembers the redhead from New Zion. Remembers everything about her from the single time they met—her red hair, blue eyes and freckled face. But when he finds her, heavily drugged and under Meister’s control, her sorry condition causes him to remember more than the beautiful woman he once tied to a tree. Saving Phebe forces hidden demons from his past to return. A past he can never move on from, no matter how hard he tries.

As AK fights to help Phebe, and in turn she strives to help him, they realize their secret sins will never leave them alone. Kindred broken souls, they realize the only way they can be rid of their ghosts is to face them together and try to find peace.

Despair soon turns to hope, and damaged hearts soon start to heal. But when their deep, painful scars resurface, becoming too much to bear, the time comes when they must make a heavy choice: stay forever damned; or together, find grace.

Dark Contemporary Romance. Contains explicit sexual situations, violence, disturbingly sensitive and taboo subjects, offensive language and very mature topics. Recommended for age 18 and over.

Even the broken, through love, can find grace.

Damnable Grace blew me away. I love the entire Hangman series. These books are unlike any other MC books out there. I’m going to try to keep this one short, sweet, and spoiler free- because the impact it will have on you reading it will be huge. This story is emotional, moving, and brutal at times. Yes, it’s truly brutal. In a lot of ways, it’s the darkest of the Hangman books.

AK is part of the Psycho Trio, and you really get to see more of him in Flame’s book. I didn’t know what to expect from his story, but wow. You get a lot of AK’s back story from when he was a special-op sniper in the Marines. You get to see what happened to him and his family and how it shaped him into the man he is. You also get to see how he found Flame and how all that tied together.

Phebe is Lilah’s sister and was born and raised in The Order. She is SO different than the other heroines in this series. Phebe was groomed as a child to essentially be a whore for The Order. She was the Head of the Sacred Sisters. When everything went down with The Order, she was taken by Meister, a leader of part of the KKK. There have been some pretty terrible and despicable characters in this series, but I haven’t hated many the way I hated Meister.

AK makes it his mission to save Phebe, to get her back to her sister and out of the hands of that monster. Since he first saw her at New Zion, he’s always remembered her and she held a special place for him. He likes Phebe for Phebe. Not for her body or what she can do for him. She’s never found a male that has treated her that way.
I was not sure, but . . . but I hoped, and I prayed, that he actually liked me. For me. Not my body. But just . . . me. I did not understand how that could possibly be true, but I desperately wanted it to be.

Although AK and Phebe had very different upbringings and lives, they are more alike than you could imagine. They truly understand one another. I loved their connection. Nothing is better to me than watching completely damaged and destroyed souls start to mend together. It warms my heart. I loved this couple, but seeing all they had been through was hard. This book is not for the faint of heart. If you can’t handle disturbing scenes, violence, rape etc in books- you may need to skip this one. I hate to say that, because it’s a book that needs to be read, but I understand these types of stories aren’t for everyone.

I love all things Tillie Cole, but her Hangman series is truly exceptional. AK and Phebe’s story is powerful. It’s a captivating read. I highly recommend all these books, and after reading the end of this book and the sneak peek OMG! What’s coming… I can’t even wait! I know there are lots of epic books to come, but there is one I’m looking forward to even more than the others! Lil Ash! GAH! For all readers of The Hangman series, pick this one up ASAP! You won’t be disappointed!
She’d hooked me in, I’d taken the bait, but unlike the other unlucky bastards, she was never leaving me . . . because I’d hooked her in too. For good.
