“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.

Clare's Review:
Holy. Fuckballs.
I have just been taken on the darkest, most painful, gut wrenching, eye burning, breath hitching, erotic ride of my life. If you thought Tears of Tess was a journey, wait until you read Q. Fuck me.
It's almost impossible to put this into words. And I really don't want to give ANYTHING away, because it would take some of your pain away, and that is NOT what Q is all about.
Tears of Tess was hot and dark, but was merely the introduction of Tess and Q's story. Neither one of them knew how they would make the relationship work in line with their needs. Quintessentially Q is about each of them being completely broken down (Completely. Broken. The. Fuck. Down.), so they can rebuild a new relationship and life together.
I liked Tess and Q from the very beginning. And as this book goes on, I fell completely, painfully in love with both of them. They have such strengths and such weaknesses and SUCH demons. And they fight SO hard! Fuck do they fight. It'll take your breath away.
As a disclaimer, I should probably say that this book might not be for everyone (I mean, I think EVERYONE should read it, but they might not be able to handle it). When I say dark, I mean throw other "dark" reads out the fucking window. It's raw and it hurts. But there is redemption and love and really poignant sensuality. It's perfection.
(By the way, it's crazy hot. I literally ached with need and the results of this are things that would probably make me blush if I were someone different. Reading is fun!)
5 stars. 6 stars. Fuck it---a million stars- whatever. Read it.

Deleted Snippet 1:
The more I opened the eyes where Tess was concerned the more I saw. I had an affinity with languages and slowly I grew to know Tess’s. That thought stopped me short. Had she come to read me as much as I grew to read her? Were we both screaming the truth and we just couldn’t understand each other?

Deleted Snippet 2:
For a brief moment, I was the one in control, not Q. He punished me for giving him pleasure? Anger percolated again and I glared at him. “I will never understand you.” It seemed almost an oath and the moment I said it, I wanted to take it back.

A New Adult Dark Contemporary Romance, not suitable for people sensitive to grief, slavery, and nonconsensual sex. A story about finding love in the strangest of places, a will of iron that grows from necessity, and forgiveness that may not be enough.
“My life was complete. Happy, content, everything neat and perfect.
Then it all changed.
I was sold.”
Tess Snow has everything she ever wanted: one more semester before a career in property development, a loving boyfriend, and a future dazzling bright with possibility.
For their two year anniversary, Brax surprises Tess with a romantic trip to Mexico. Sandy beaches, delicious cocktails, and soul-connecting sex set the mood for a wonderful holiday. With a full heart, and looking forward to a passion filled week, Tess is on top of the world.

But lusty paradise is shattered.

Kidnapped. Drugged. Stolen. Tess is forced into a world full of darkness and terror.

Captive and alone with no savior, no lover, no faith, no future, Tess evolves from terrified girl to fierce fighter. But no matter her strength, it can’t save her from the horror of being sold.

Can Brax find Tess before she’s broken and ruined, or will Tess’s new owner change her life forever?

Series: Monsters in the Dark, Book #3
Author: Pepper Winters
Genre: Erotic/Dark Contemporary Romance
Release Date: Early 2014

Twisted Together Synopsis:

“After battling through hell, I brought my esclave back from the brink of ruin. I sacrificed everything—my heart, my mind, my very desires to bring her back to life. And for a while, I thought it broke me, that I’d never be the same. But slowly the beast is growing bolder, and it’s finally time to show Tess how beautiful the dark can be.”

Q gave everything to bring Tess back. In return, he expects nothing less. Tess may have leashed and tamed him, but he’s still a monster inside.
