Included in the following edition are:
TEARS OF TESS
“My life was complete. Happy, content, everything neat and perfect. Then it all changed. I was sold.”
Kidnapped. Drugged. Stolen. Tess is forced into a world full of darkness and terror.
“All my life, I battled with the knowledge I was twisted… fucked up to want something so deliciously dark. But then slave fifty-eight entered my world. ”
Q may be a monster, but he’s Tess’s monster.
“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.”
Q gave everything to bring Tess back. In return, he expects nothing less.
**Not recommended if you don’t enjoy dark romance, angst-filled plots, and BDSM.
I am a huge fan of Pepper Winters – the Indebted Series were the first books that I have ever read of hers and they are wonderful. I ventured into the world of Q and Tess with an open mind, knowing the dark side of Ms. Winters. And she did not disappoint. Let’s just say the tears and tissues were flowing in my world while I read this.
This story was gut wrenching from the first chapters and had me in tears throughout. If you love a good dark angsty read, this is definitely a series for you. From kidnap to salvation, Tess shows that she is stronger than any woman should ever need to be.
Q, what can I say about Q that will not give away too many of his secrets. He is so not the man he portrays himself to be. He taps into his inner monster in such a marvelous way, but can be the sweetest man too. I wanted to climb into my kindle and give him a hug more than one time.
To say that I am now hooked on Q would be an understatement. I LOVE that man! Pepper does such a great job of making us fall for the ‘bad’ guy.
Excerpt from Twisted Together (MITD, #3)
Desire unfurled faster and faster in my belly.
Q frowned, impossibly making him more roguish and handsome. “Tess…? How do you feel?”
How did I feel? Amazing. Lusty. Powerful. Consumed.
I stretched again, arching my back as water lapped around my body. I wanted to moan with how good I felt. I’d never been so warm or contended or horny.
My eyes snapped to Q’s. Him. I had to have him.
“You’re so beautiful,” I murmured.
Q froze, his eyes searching mine. Slowly, his lips turned up into half a smile.
I pressed my thighs together. I couldn’t stop my body from overheating and needing. I’d been cursed or charmed—some sort of potion lived inside. I had no other explanation for how much I needed him.
I laughed, throwing myself headfirst into whatever spell I was trapped in. My voice fell from my mouth, tinkling and chiming like a bell. Was that truly me? I sounded magical. I sounded like a princess straight from a storybook.
Who was I? Sleeping Beauty who’d been woken by her prince?
My eyes locked onto Q’s. No. I was the one who’d fallen head over heels for a beast who spoke in foreign tongues.
A flush of heat and wetness built between my legs. I would give anything to have his tongue on me. I wanted his head between my thighs. I wanted his fingers clawing at my hips. I wanted to be used, bruised, adored.
Q cocked his head, chuckling under his breath. “I think Franco miscalculated the dose.”
I shook my head. I didn’t understand. All I understood was his voice had the power to make me come. The deep tenor vibrated through my heart, sending tiny orgasms exploding in my veins.
I needed to be touched. I needed to be kissed.
