A broken woman.
A damaged man.
A free spirit intent on saving them both.
Elysia ‘Sia’ Willis lives a solitary life. The only person in it is her big brother, Ky, vice-president of the infamous Hades Hangmen. She loves him, but she has absolutely no love for the outlaw MC he belongs to.
Raised in secret by her mother, Sia grew up separated from her brother and distant father. No one knew she even existed.
After the tragic murder of her mother, Sia spiraled into a rebellion against the rules of the Hangmen. A rebellion with dire consequences that now, years later, she still can’t escape.
As she lives once again in secret, happy on her own at her secluded ranch, a devil from her past comes calling. A devil who wants to possess her once again and take her from the simple life she never wants to lose.
And he will stop at nothing to collect what he believes is his: her.
Valan ‘Hush’ Durand and Aubin ‘Cowboy’ Breaux have finally found a home in the mother chapter of the Hangmen. The notoriously private Cajun twosome have, for now, put aside what chased them from their beloved Louisiana. But as threats toward the club build, Hush and Cowboy are given a task—protect Elysia Willis at all costs. Cowboy welcomes the job of watching over the blond-haired, blue-eyed beauty.
Hush fights against it.
Scarred by events from his past and a secret that plagues his everyday life, Hush refuses to let anyone else get close. Only Cowboy knows the real him. Until a certain sister of the club’s VP begins to slowly knock down his defenses, shattering the heavily built walls that guard his damaged soul . . . with his best friend leading the charge.
As lost and open hearts begin to meld, taking each other from indescribable pain to the never-before felt relief of peace, the newly-mended threesome must first endure one more rocky path.
Only then will they finally shake free of the shackles of their pasts.
Only then will they shed the bonds that have for too long held their happiness captive.
And there is only one way to survive that path . . . together.
Dark Contemporary MFM Romance. Contains scenes of violence and explicit sexual situations. Over 18’s only.
Where do I begin, I have no idea how to explain this book, other than its one of the most beautiful love stories I have read for some time. Is it your conventional love story, No. Not by a long shot. Is it broken and heartbreaking, Yes! But its beautiful all the same.
This is also not quite the typical Hades Hangmen story either. The violence and no-nonsense way of dealing with things are the same but the emotions that poured from this book was like none other from the past. The Klan feature heavily in this book and for me, it’s a tough subject. Maybe even more so than previously tackled. The pain felt in this book, really tore me apart. The hatred of others that are different, from the “norm” is not easy to take in and deal with. Why? Is a question that can never be truly answered.
Hush, Cowboy and Sia are the main characters in this book but all the Hangmen feature somewhere in its pages. Even some that haven’t appeared before. The Menage theme was brilliant and the way it came about was truly due to a un-selfless act of a true best friend and brother. And a special bond that is timeless.
In true Hangmen style nothing has an easy path in their world and you are taken on a rough journey through time and past lives, lived by the three main characters. Hush/Valan, Cowboy/Aubin and Sia/Elysia. This trio is meant to be and you will see that through the pages of this book. There is one saying that will stay with me for a lifetime to come. “Love doesn’t see colour, Only pure hearts”.
This books ripped my heart out in places, I sobbed so much reading it. But by the end, my heart was mended and put back together again. I really recommend this amazing book and series. Although you will find it very different but it’s just as good as the rest.
