Product description

Product Description

Our love is imperfect in the most perfect way. It is love done our way. Raw. Unconventional. Sexy as hell. More importantly, it is honest to the core…Or so I think.
One little, white lie shouldn't do so much damage. Yet, it changes me forever.
The worst part is that Declan whispers that sweet nothing out of protection. My safety is in the forefront of his mind, especially since there are others who’d hurt me simply to get to him. I never consider that he will be the one to cut me so deeply. But it all starts with that first prick—the night he saves my life.

***
His perilous stare deepened as his grip fastened around my waist. As maniacal thoughts passed over his eyes, his grasp tightened. That look confirmed that I wasn’t the only one who wanted all the space between us eliminated.
I
could hardly breathe when his gaze fell to my lips. It left me without words. It was the very way a passing glance could leave you speechless. But Declan didn’t just take a glimpse. No, he unapologetically looked me over. He
loved
me in not so many words, but I heard them all the same. I heard them with each moan that echoed in the air. I felt them as he held me gently in his arms. Even if I didn’t feel the desire radiating off of him in a fury of passion, he bore that intensity in his gaze. The world around us melted away until there was only me and
him.

This is the first book I've read by Sarah J. Pepper, but it will not be the last. I loved her spin on Rumpelstiltskin. Declan Stilts is one sexy man. Piper Miller is one feisty female and I love that Declan's pet name for her is Pied Piper. This is a love story, but it's so much more. You will be surprised at the twists in this book, so go one-click now. I highly recommend this book. I can't wait to read the next one

4.0 out of 5 stars Dark romance that leaves you wanting more and more! Twisted, fantastic read! 28 February 2016
By Deb A. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Why does Sarah Pepper do this to me! The draws me in with the beautifully developed characters and story line, then BAM! Yep, didn't see that coming. I agonize over it every time, and love it every time. It is impossible to not have a book hangover - particularly with her twisted fairy tale stories.

If you haven't, it's recommended you read Priceless first, though it's not required. It is part of the anthology Fairy Tale Confessions.

The story of Declan and Piper continues. Piper is about to die, and he saves her by sharing his curse, making her a succubus. There is so much I could say, but I don't want to give too many spoilers!

I don't know how she does it, but the author makes me forget that I've met these characters before, and that this is her modern retelling of their story. The whole time I was reading it, I found myself trying to determine who the good guys were and who were the bad. One thing I have discovered about Ms. Pepper's books, is that she does not like things to be black and white, and write some of the best anti-heroes I've had the privilege of reading. It does end with a cliffhanger, and I greatly look forward to the continuation!

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply amazing storytelling! 23 February 2016
By snscuster - Published on Amazon.com

Soulless picks up right where Priceless (from the Fairy Tales Confession anthology) ended. Declan doesn’t go through with giving his curse fully to Piper, instead he chooses to share it with her. I was really hoping that it would work out for both of them. Sure it’s not a traditional love story but it was definitely passionate. My hopes were sent on a rollercoaster journey as Piper struggled with her love for Declan and her fear of becoming a monster like him. The emotions from both Declan and Piper were real and raw. My heart was breaking by the end, so much torment. The secondary characters of Opie, Hans and El, and Ula completely have me hoping and praying they will have their stories told. Sarah J Pepper is by far my favorite author of reimagined fairy tales.
5.0 out of 5 stars Sarah has a way with words. 26 February 2016

Have I ever said how much I love Sarah's books? Cause I do! They are fantastic, and this one was just as wonderful. She has a way with words and telling a story that keeps you hooked. I find myself rereading certain lines over and over again because they strike a cord within me that speaks to my soul.

Soulless picks up right where Priceless left off. I strongly recommend reading Priceless first. It is the beginning of this beautiful tale and can be quite confusing and leave a disconnect between you and the characters if you don't. There is so much information in Priceless that is needed to truly enjoy this story. And enjoy I did. I've been waiting for this continuation and I wasn't let down a single bit.

Poor Piper. The girl didn't know what she signed up for when she said that she wanted to stay with Declan. There wasn't time for him to feed her all the facts. It was keep her or set her free, and Declan is a selfish, selfish man. It's in his nature to be. It's also in his nature to twist truths, no matter how big or how small they are. His love for Piper is something he hasn't felt in hundreds of years. It almost makes him feel human again. But no matter how much he does for Piper, the real reason he's doing it is selfishness. He couldn't let her go, and he didn't want to pass on the curse and leave her after he fell for her. He wants it all. All she wants is to not hurt anyone and love him, but that isn't going to happen now that she's a succubus. There tumultuous love is riddled with secrets and twisted truths that are tearing them apart. There's a thin line between love and hate. I always say that hate is a fierce way of loving something or someone. It's definitely happening here when Declan hides her away to wipe out a threat that could destroy them both. Piper learns a lot in his absence, mostly horrible truths about Declan and what she has become, but when they are together, their passion for one another blinds them. Piper has to decide if their love is strong enough to accept her new nature and trust in Declan. There really is no lesser of two evils here.

And to top it off, Sarah slapped us in the face with one of her epic endings making us curse our kindles and almost throw them across the room. So here I sit wondering where the hell she's going to take us in the next installment and if that is going to release tomorrow, because I wanted it yesterday. I loved the other fairytale characters included in this story and the twists Sarah gave to them. So fresh and imaginative. Pick up both stories. Devour them. Such wonderful stories, you won't regret your time spent on these pages.
5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderfully twisted and modernized version of Rumplestiltskin, by Sarah J. Pepper! 24 February 2016
By Shannon Keith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Soulless is one of the best books I've read this year. It is a twisted fairytale that brings the tale of Rumplestiltskin into modern times, portraying his character as a wealthy MMA fighter who also happens to be a demon that feeds on the darker desires of mankind. We were first introduced to Declan Stilts in a short story from the anthology "Fairy Tale Confessions" and if you haven't read that story, I suggest you begin there.

This story is so much more than just a retelling of the German fairytale about an imp, who spins straw into gold in return for gifts (and the binding promise of the woman's firstborn child) from a desperate miller's daughter. Sarah J. Pepper seamlessly infuses her tale with characters and bits of storyline from other fairytales (such as "Pinocchio" and "The Pied Piper of Hamelin"), as well as certain paranormal aspects.

"I had never believed in unconditional love. I’d never known it to be true until I met the bad boy who had a death grip on my heart." -Piper Miller, Soulless

I, also, love that the universal truths that the characters uncover, throughout the story, apply to everyone. This is truly in the spirit of the "Fairytale", with the obvious goal of teaching a lesson and uncovering truths central to each character and each reader.

"During the worse trials of one’s life, their grace showed. It was a testament of their strength." -Declan Stilts, Soulless
4.0 out of 5 stars Great dark and twisty read 25 February 2016
By Cheree~For Love of Books4 - Published on Amazon.com

I absolutely LOVED ‘Priceless’ the twisted tale of Declan and Piper in Fairy Tale Confessions. So when I heard there was gonna be an entire book full of their goodness! Yah, you could say I was a wee bit excited. I was lucky enough to have gotten my hands on an ARC copy, and I was not disappointed.

This story didn’t go as I had expected, which is good, because a book where you see what is coming is just no fun at all. Soulless starts off right where Priceless ended. With Declan turning Piper, and a little twist added to that part of the story. There was someone in the bathroom watching, someone with a dark agenda. And the stage has been set. As soon as their life together starts, Declan must hide Piper away to keep her safe. But can he really trust the people he thinks are trustworthy? Will their love overcome the things they go through in the first few days of Pipers new life, and will she be able to live with who she is now and all the truths she comes to know? That is the question of the hour here. Warning…you may not get all the answers you were hoping for, this is book 1 of course. There is so much more to come in book 2, and I can’t wait to see where Sarah takes us from here!
