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.
After surviving the darkness, a new dawn has begun. Twisted Together wades through black to grey, chasing the light of true love to banish the shadows forever.
Pain is a requirement, connection a necessity. But ultimately Q and Tess must face their demons, before they can embrace their future.

Twisted Together – Excerpt

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.

Kiss him. Let him know.

Launching upright, I splashed a wave over the tub. Q jerked back, but wasn’t fast enough. Wrapping my arms around his neck, I dragged him down toward me. His hand slipped on the rim, plunging his arms into the water, landing on either side of my body.

His mouth opened to curse, but I swallowed whatever he said. My lips stole his, and the moment I tasted him, I went a little mad.

My core squeezed with delirium, demanding to be filled. My eyes rolled back at the sheer bliss of kissing.

He tasted like freedom and violence and pain.

Esclave…wait…” Q tried to speak, but he only gave me the opportunity to slink my tongue into his mouth. Joy bounced and fizzed in my heart, demanding more.

I moaned, dragging him closer. My hands dug into his hair, tugging with sharp-laced desire. His mouth opened, either in shock or passion—I didn’t hesitate. I thrust my tongue deeper into his mouth, willingly drowning myself in all things Q.


Christine’s 4 STAR Review!!

So after reading Tears for Tess and Quintessentially Q which I loved, I went into this book hesitantly because I loved what I had read so far and wondered if book 3 would meet my expectations and Pepper Winters certainly did not disappoint.

Twisted Together is the final chapter with Tess and Q, a couple who I have come to really know and love throughout this series.

After reading all the books, a question begs to be asked – can time heal all scars?

Tess and Q have been to hell and back as a couple since book 1 and in this next phase, we see hope, trust, faith and love slowly building again for the future that this couple so richly deserves. Q is the epitome of a book boyfriend in this book with his patience and dedication, giving Tess everything she needs to get back to where she once was. Q’s patience in letting Tess not only find herself but put her first despite his own wants and needs made me fall in love with him even more.

Now mind you that though Q has changed somewhat, his dark monster is still present, still wanting and seeing Tess be afraid of something that once bonded them so close together was so heartbreaking and gut wrenching for me because their connection was so deep and I hope beyond hope that they will be able to find it once again. Her fears are SO understandable but again drives home for me this hard journey that this couple has endured to date.

This series as a whole was so well written and poignant. I enjoyed this couple’s twisted, boundless and strong love for each other and to learn even more about the possessive monster underneath.

Their journey to happy was filled with agony and torture but also moments of complete beauty and bliss that put a complete smile on my face and hope in my heart. Twisted Together was just as exciting, action packed and scorchingly hot as the previous books and fans will not be disappointed to pick up this book and devour Tess and Q’s conclusion.

I would be remiss to add that at times this book was a little too dark and somewhat repetitive for me but nothing that took away from the magnificent world that Pepper Winters has written for us.

“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?


Monsters in the Dark, #2
Amazon | Amazon UK | B&N | Kobo | iTunes | Paperback


“All my life, I battled with the knowledge I was twisted… screwed 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 do 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.

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
