"For fractured souls are like magnets.
Drawn to collide into an impossible bliss…"

Labeled a ‘Cursed’ woman of Eve from birth, Maddie has endured nothing but pain and repression at the hands of The Order’s most abusive elder, Moses. Now living with her sister in The Hangmen’s secluded compound, finally, Maddie, is free. Free from the suffocating faith she no longer believes in. Free from endless years of physical and mental torment.

Just… free…

At age twenty-one, the timid and shy Maddie is content to live within the confines of her new home—safe from the outside world, safe from harm and, strangely, protected by the Hangmen’s most volatile member; the heavily pierced and tattooed, Flame.


The man who ceaselessly watches over her with his midnight dark and searing eyes. The man who protects her with a breath-taking intensity. And the man who stirs something deep within her numbed heart.

But when circumstances conspire for Flame to need HER help, Maddie bravely risks it all for the broken man who has captivated her fragile soul.

The Hangmen’s most infamous member, Flame, is ruled by one thing—anger. Plagued by haunting demons from his past, an all-consuming rage, and isolated by an abhorrent hatred of being touched, Flame's days are filled with suffocating darkness, pierced only by a single ray of light—Maddie. The shy, beautiful woman he cannot purge from his thoughts. The woman he has an overwhelming need to possess…
... the only person who has ever been able to touch him.

Flame’s mission in life is to protect Maddie, to keep her safe. Until a trigger from his troubled past sends him spiraling into madness, trapping him in the deepest recesses of his disturbed mind.

His Hangmen brothers fear that Flame is beyond saving.

His only hope of salvation: Maddie and her healing light.

Nancy’s review

“And it had to be true, because in front of me was my Flame… and I was his Maddie. Two fractured souls made whole only by the other’s unconditional love.”

I thought the first two books were heartbreaking! I was wrong! This one gutted me! IT. GUTTED. ME. I TELLS YA! I cried… a lot! It was emotional. Flame and Maddie’s story is one that I will never forget. This is my favorite book so far in the series. I loved it so much!

Flame, our troubled but lovable hero has become my new book boyfriend! He projects violence, but with Maddie, he looked at her with nothing but adoration. He believes Maddie calms the flames running their his veins. These two have been through a lot of shit and reading their story was not easy, yet I also felt so much hope.

“He had midnight eyes. Was pierced. Tattooed. Strong. And filled with pure rage. But he was mine. And when he was mine, he was gentle, caring, and just as broken as I. And I adored that it was me who got to witness that side of him, and me alone.”

The scene where Flame lets Maddie touch him? Yep, I was crying a river, folks! It was such a huge step for them. Watching them overcome their fears, it made me so happy that the tears just started flowing. He believes she calms the flames within him. Together they chased away the demons from their pasts.

“I held you, and you held me.” Her hands moved and gestured down her body. “And your touch did not harm me. The flames you believe run in your veins, did not engulf me. Instead, you gave me life. You gave me back my light.” Another tear fell down her cheek, and she whispered, “You, Flame. My Flame. My tortured boy. You gave me life and light.”

Flame may not be good with words and feelings but his actions say it all. This man stole my heart and I don’t want it back!

“But fuck, Maddie, I know this. I fucking love you. You fucking saved me. You fucking understand me. And you’re fucking mine.”

Tillie Cole, you are the best! I. LOVE. YOU, WOMAN! You know just how to tear my heart apart and put it back together! This book was everything!
