“All my life, I battled with the knowledge I was twisted… fucked up to want

something so deliciously dark—wrong on so many levels. But then slave fifty-eight

entered my world. Hissing, fighting, with a core of iron, she showed me an existence

where two wrongs make a right."

Tess is Q’s completely. Q is Tess’s irrevocably. But now, they must learn the

boundaries of their unconventional relationship, while Tess seeks vengeance on the

men who sold her. Q made a blood-oath to deliver their corpses at Tess’s feet, and

that’s just what he’ll do.

He may be a monster, but he’s Tess’s monster.


OH MY GOD! I'm speechless, really....I asked for dark...I got dark! I asked to be shocked....boy, was I not only shocked...I found myself cringing at times! I also have to mention the covers of this series....cover love!!!! This series is deliciously intense, erotic, twisted, dark, passionate, and tragic.....a perfect escape from real life! 5 stars.

"You’re my obsession, I’m your possession. You own the deepest part of me."

QQ picks right back up where Tears of Tess left off.  Tess is back with Quicy and they are trying to give a real relationship together a chance. Things are awkward at first, Q is trying to keep his dark tendencies locked down and Tess wants them unleashed.  Within days of their reunion their world is turned upside down, leaving Tess broken and Q unable to fix her. Q is savage, he will stop at nothing to bring the woman he loves back from the brink of destruction, but is it already too late?

“You’ll never be free of me. I’ll never be free of you. It’s fate who decides, and fate gave us each other.”

Looking for a book to make you feel every emotion, shock you, entertain you, and leave you thinking gahhhhh...what the freak did I just read? This is the series for you! This series is right at the top of my favorite dark/gritty reads.

Pepper Winters wears many roles. Some of them include writer, reader, sometimes

wife. She loves dark, taboo stories that twist with your head. The more tortured the

hero the better and she constantly thinks up ways to break and fix her characters.

Oh, and sex… her books have sex.

She loves to travel and has an amazing, fabulous hubby (who speaks French—hot!)

who puts up with her love affair with her book boyfriends. She loves to hear from

her readers so hit her up at
