*6 out of 5 BRANDING stars!!! THE BEST BOOK OF 2013!* Prima Donna

“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 hard to read subjects. 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.

It's taken a while for me to write a review on this book. I have never read a book this dark, torture filled, at times for me horrific. That being said once I started I could not put it down. Yes it's very graphic and violent but it flowed and without it all it would not have been as captivating. This is a story that will leave you with mouth gaping and heart breaking but also give you a longing to know what happens between Tess and Q. Remarkable!

This story evokes all kinds of emotions. I love Tess, her strength is amazing. I am still coming to terms with Q. As for the darkness of this story, I am still working that out for myself. All I can say is that it is page turner and strangely enticing. I too want to wreak revenge on those men who kidnap women and children and sell them into slavery, they are scum.

I listened to the Audio version of this book. I Love Pepper Winters but I could not get in to this story. The first half was really good but then I just wanted to slap Tess and tell her to stop being such a push over

This is the third Pepper Winters book I have read and I just cannot get enough, just like her characters in her books.

So taboo, so crude, so delicious. I loved it and can't wait for the next one.

I absolutely LOVE the cover, it's just gorgeous!

Ah-f*%king-mazing!!!!! (Sorry for the language but it so called for it!!) This book just blew me away, I've so been taken to the dark side and I LIKE it!!! lol. It's now over 24hrs since I finished the book and I'm still thinking about it, I haven't even attempted to read anything new yet.

This is Pepper Winters debut novel and she has done such a brilliant job, she has a beautifully unique writing style that really opens up to you and you become apart of the story. Every emotion Tess felt, I felt. Every intense, scary, painful, exciting, thrilling, smouldering, panty wetter moment (Sorry, but there are many in this story LOL), you're feeling it too. Just the Prologue alone had me hooked, but with every turn of the page I got in deeper and deeper.

Tess, she's living a normal, plain old life, she's in love and happy. But there's something that she's been suppressing for awhile now; Tess has dark fantasies (who doesn't have those to some extent). She's completely ashamed of these thoughts and feelings, and hates herself for them.

Tess's boyfriend Brax (the "normal" type boyfriend) decides to surprise her with a romantic getaway to Cancun, Mexico and this is when she thought she could show him a little of the real Tess.

Excitement soon turns into complete and utter fear, after having a day of adventure they stop at a cafe and Tess knew before she even walked into the place that something bad was gonna happen.

Can you imagine being kidnapped and than sold to a complete stranger, someone who could do anything they wanted to you and you couldn't do a damn thing?! I was so scared for her, I went misty eyed so many times I wanted to jump in and kick these psycho's butts.
