New York Times Bestselling Trilogy. All Books OUT NOW

“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?

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.

  • Tears of Tess (MitD Vol 1) -- Pepper Winters

    By OpheliaShalurne
    Theme song: "Demons" by Imagine Dragons (I waited to read the entire series (Je Suis à Toi withstanding) before reviewing the entire trilogy) When Tess is kidnapped on a vacation with her (for a lack of better words) "choir-boy" boyfriend, thus begins her evolution from a quiet, well-mannered lady into a fierce, take no prisoners woman. And then she meets Q, and he makes everything within her contradict. All she knows is that Mr. Mercer is dangerous to her sanity, and the sooner she escapes, the better off she'll be...or so she believes. Q is one of those villain/hero types, like Cat Woman (..then again, I've never seen a film with that character, lol.) Tortured by his past, he struggles more than ever when Tess tests his control and everything's he's kept buried. But as she wars with her body and mind, she's shattering his resolve. Book one revolves physicality as volume two is emotion and three mental. Each one tests all three wellness areas, and while these damaged character tumble and fumble, they'll have to learn their limits and push their barriers. Written in "dual" language (English primary + French) Tears of Tess is truly a beauty and the beast type of tale with a helluva intense *ahem* steam. (Lol, there's a reason it's rated 18+) Seriously. ((I'll admit, this was my first dark romance, so I had no idea what I was getting into. XD BUT, that being said, what an introduction into the Romance world!)) As the first installment of the series, these monsters will have to find each other in the dark. I'll part with a quote from Albus Dumbledore that sets the tone for the series. "Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times if one only remembers to turn on the light." Pepper is consistent with her characters--thank you, God! Even as they evolve, their personalities don't earthquake shift. Winters syntax and how she incorporates literary devices/elements is one of the best I've seen! Furthermore, this is her DEBUT novel!!! One might expect (like JK Rowling--not that I have anything negative thing to say about that awesome woman) that the first isn't the best in terms of pace, syntax, editing, what have you. But, Pepper impressed me straight out of the gate! Between plot and construction of the story (again, mechanics, pace, believability), Pepper excels at both! I definitely recommend buying the Kindle series set, it'll save you a bunch of "tax" money! LOL Unless you like the individual covers like I do! I hope to someday own the paperback copies. 🍉🍊🍍 Hero rating: 5 stars Heroine rating: 5 stars Writing mechanics (literary elements/devices usage included): 5 stars Plot rating: 5 stars Dialogue rating: 5 stars Storytelling rating: 5 stars Story ending rating: 5 Sexual tension rating: 5 stars Sex scenes rating: 5 stars Sex scenes frequency: 5 stars (not good nor bad, just occurrence rating) ********************************************** Overall rating: 5 stars Would I recommend this series: Yes. Would I re-read this series: Yes (I already have!) Would I read future books by this author: Yes!!!!!

  • Best book I've read in a long time

    By Happygurk
    I was captivated along with Tess. I felt her inertermoil and longings. This book is incredible.
  • Disappointed

    By Ashmcphierce
    Was very disappointed with this book. Which was sad since I loved the other books Pepper has written. I didn't mind the darkness that centered the story but what drove me crazy was the heroine. She was extremely indecisive. One minute she wanted to fight, then she was begging to "belong", to then crying out of guilt. She's all over the place and lacked the strength and growth I was looking for. I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone. It's not the worth the time unless you want to read about a character who can't connect with its readers or feel something other then frustrating annoyance.
  • Great

    By SassiCassi416
    Love the series title. Monsters inside of all of us. Just have to be brave enough to explore them.
  • Trash

    By Prettyhearty7
    I have never written a bad review for a book before. Actually I rarely write reviews and when I do it's good ones. I take into consideration the amount of work that writers put into their books. So after reading this I let it simmer. However very time I think about the book, I think one word..trash!
  • Only ok

    By StellabeanSalt
    I really liked shades of gray, so it wasn't the content that bothered me, I just hate it when the heroine does or thinks something really stupid. This heroine does a lot of that. I finally gave up on pg 375. I just couldn't take it anymore. She gets humiliated, and slapped then two pages later she's bawling because she ran away and is sorry about it. I don't buy it.
  • Power and dark

    By Annmric8
    If your looking for a dark erotic romance you will love this one. Not the kind of fetish I'm a fan of, but it's written in a way that will have you craving more. You will question your own sanity asking yourself how can I keep reading this it is so wrong. Maybe for the light hearted it is not, but if you understand anything about the world we live in you might be surprised what some people need to survive. You will find yourself consumed by Q's darkness and question his sanity. It's a f###ing fantastic read. I'm already starting the second book. Download it now!
