SynopsisMary Persephone Hail Mary—well-wished-for child. Persephone—destruction. Hail—well that speaks for itself. Her name is painful to think about. Mary, his newfound daughter, isn’t a wished-for child. Persephone, though? Yeah, destruction is a fitting description. And Hail? Yeah, that’s just the final f-you. The moment that her mother drops her off on his doorstep, Dante’s hell becomes complete. Or so he thinks. What can make life worse after losing one’s wife and kids, you ask? Here’s what: being given a baby that depends on him for her survival. Finding out that the baby’s mother is dying of brain cancer, and has a husband that he never knew about. A husband that Dante knows in the marrow of his bones is trying to kill her just as surely as the cancer eating her brain. Dante’s a bad person. He’s done some not so nice things, and now he’s being punished for his misdeeds. Karma is finally catching up to him. This child that he’s been stuck with is of his flesh and bone. This child is his salvation. This child is the final nail in the coffin of his wife and daughters’ too short lives. He doesn’t want this child. But this child will save him whether he wants her to or not. With the help of a friend—yes, a woman friend—Dante finds his way back to life. But what he finds when he gets back isn’t the same life that he left behind. Turns out, he has to start living a new one. One where he’s suddenly having feelings for a friend that helped him get through some tough times, and loving a daughter that won’t let him quit.

Hail Mary by Lani Lynn Vale
Hail Mary is book 6 in the Hail Raisers Series. It can be a stand alone but I highly recommend that you read the books in order as you'll get a better appreciation as a whole for the series.
Dante is barely existing after that devastating loss of his family. Everyone is worried about him. In drops Mary, a daughter he didn't know existed until her mother, who is dying of brain cancer shows up on his doorstep. Much to his reluctance Mary is bringing him back into the land of living. She is such a sweet little girl. That had me at times saying 'aaahhh' as I read along in the story.
Also showing up in his life is Colbie, Mary's mother's best friend. Life hasn't been kind to Colbie either. When she's faced with some difficult news of her own Dante doesn't let her face them alone.
Dante and Colbie's attraction to each other is something that Dante fights against due to the tragedy of his past.
There is another party doing his best to keep them from having a HEA.
This book is very well written. I was absolutely gutted by Dane's loss of his family. His up and down emotions of moving on with his life were so realistic and pulled me that much more into the story. The characters are well developed and have great dialogue. I love the twist of intrigue and suspense, too. My favorite type of story to read.
I love that we got to know Rafe a little more. Just enough that it has me craving for more.
