Book Trailer:

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?


Warning: This book is for the adventurous, who can think out of the box and have a hint of erotic torture in them. It isnt for everyone.

Sweet mother of pearls! This book rocked me off my chains. It was intense from the start. I think it even had the best prologue I have ever read. It drew you in right away. I loved what Pepper did with the theme with the birds. I could see the metaphor it represented in the book. Tess is a strong girl whose life was leading to needing change. Being kidnapped was the worst and best thing that happened to her. It was her being set free and being the person she was meant to be.

This was an all-time favorite book this year. Tears of Tess leaves you on the edge of your seat the whole time. It is a dark story, but it was beautifully written. Great job, Pepper Winters! You made me a fan. Your competition in this genre need to step it up. Books are to take you into a new world that you wouldn't even think of happening. Don't read this book if you cant handle dark and taboo. But if that curious itch in you wants a beautifully dark story, this book is for you!

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
