Description

They are the Fallen. A brotherhood of murderers whose nature compels them to kill. But guided by their leader, Gabriel, the Fallen have learned to use their urges to rid the world of those it is better off without.

For Raphael, sex and death are intertwined. Where there is one, there must be the other. He is a lust killer, luring his victims with the face of an angel and a body built for sin. 

And Raphael lives to sin. 

His newest mission takes him into the sadistic underworld of Boston’s secret sex clubs, and puts him face to face with his greatest fantasy made flesh.

Maria is everything he’s ever dreamed of, the kill he’s always longed for. She’s not his target. And he knows he must resist. But the temptation is too strong…

Yet Raphael is not the only one with a mission. Maria is not quite what she seems. And as her secrets and Raphael’s unravel, Maria begins to question everything she thought she knew—about evil, about the place she calls home, and about the beautiful sinner she was sent to destroy.

Dark Contemporary Romance. Contains sexual situations, violence, sensitive and taboo subjects, offensive language and topics some may find triggering. Recommended for age 18 years and up.

The Fallen: Genesis a prequel novella in The Deadly Virtues Series and MUST be read before RAPHAEL (DV: book one).

    Raphael (Deadly Virtues #1) is hauntingly good and it’s darkness at it’s finest!! This book is a perfect example as to why Tillie Cole is the queen of dark romance. I devoured Raphael within a matter of hours!! I was heavily engrossed as the storyline is unique, wicked and twisted in the best way possible. Raphael is not for the weak or the faint hearted. It has really dark moments with its compelling storyline that brings emotions to a world where these feelings just do not exist. I was so entranced and overwhelmed with a rollercoaster of emotions that made my heart break, my heart stop and my eyes welled with tears. I thought I knew what to expect going into this book however once again, Ms. Cole outdid herself by writing a brilliant masterpiece. Raphael (one of the seven members of The Fallen) who’s heart is black as night and Maria with her angelic and innocent heart really challenged me. The more I read, the more I knew these two broken souls who suffered so much tragedy and pain, were destined to be together. Trust me when I say, you need this sinfully beautiful book in your life. I’m highly anticipating reading the next stand-alone in this series.
