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...

FOLLOW TILLIE COLE HERE!!
Heart Recaptured by Tillie Cole is one of those books! Fellow reviewers, you know when you sign up for that book you really really wanted. You read it and wow, it was everything you expected and more. Now your suppose to write a review and it was so deep and dark.... just heavy- you don't even know where to start. Nothing you say will even come close to giving this book justice. Yeah that's where I am right now!
Tillie Cole is exceptional, well that is an understatement. She weaves stories that make you stop and think is this Poe or Cole,? She so eloquently puts together two complete opposites and she forces them together. No matter who likes it, these two are forced to be together. One being from a religious cult, that knows nothing of the outside world. Brainwashed to teachings of being cursed just because of her beauty. The other is a notorious outlaw, all he has ever known is a life of hell raising, he is twisted in more ways than one. How can these two stand to be together?
Delilah, poor Delilah, she was ripped from the only home she ever known, she is so devout in her faith. She knows she doomed to a life banned as a "cursed woman". She stills holds fast to her beliefs and wants to return to life in the compound. Her beauty is her curse and Delilah resents it more and more each day. She is put in the care of Ky one of the motorcycle club men for her protection. She starts to see little by little that maybe she could be loved.
Ky is used to a take what I want attitude when it comes to women, they never have mattered to him. He has used them for his release. That's all women were good for, that is the way he was taught to be. When he is put in charge of Delilah's care, he starts to change. He has been ordered not to touch her but he can't quit thinking about her. She is a backwoods religious cult pilgrim and he starts to see there is so much more to her than her stunningly good looks.
It is really hard to change the way you were raised when you were raised in a normal healthy home. I can't even imagine being brainwashed and raped, thinking you were cursed just because you were beautiful. This would be so hard to overcome, Cole did an excellent job with the character emotions. You felt how scared she was and how she really didn't want to defy her faith. Cole's character development is extraordinary, she has layered these guys in this story, Cole draws you in this story and holds you there until the last word.
I give Heart Recaptured 5 Platypire
or 5 stars however you like to count things!
AND KEEP READING Y'ALL!!
