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


“Merde, esclave, stop. For fuck’s sake, you’re ruining me.” Even with the 
ferocity of Q’s anger, I thrilled with the knowledge I was winning in some small measure—the former slave training the master. If I’d been a poet, I would’ve written how serendipitous it all was. How fate entwined and cursed us both. Q gripped my hips, propping me higher. Pulling out, the heat of his erection nudged my ass; I jolted with urgency. 
Sitting higher on his knees, Q muttered, “This is going to be fast and hard, and I don’t want you to say a word, do you hear me?”
I nodded, breathless already. “I’ll do anything you want, as long as you let me come.”
“You can come, but only when I say.” His nails imprinted crescent moons into 
my skin, digging deep. “But if you come before, I’ll punish you worse. I won’t feel regret or remorse. I’ll find a way to punish you that doesn’t make me suffer, too.” He rocked, and his cock eased down my ass, between my spread thighs, nudging my core. 
Words were beyond me. I nodded wildly, scrabbling at the carpet. The strands wrapped around my fingers and I held on for dear life. 
With urgent hands, Q untwisted my coiled ponytail and grabbed a handful. 
With a jerk, he forced my head back. My spine arched as he plunged inside me. 
Excruciating fullness. 
I opened my mouth to scream, but he clamped a hand over me, riding me, 
containing my cries. “Shush, esclave. Not a sound, remember?”
The intrusion was pain personified, the rocking endless bliss. 
The way he took me held no remnants of the sometimes sweet man beneath the blackness. This was purely brutal and dark and animalistic. 
I loved it.
With his cock deep inside, his fist wrapped around my ponytail, and his other 
hand clasped over my mouth, he fucked me. Bucking so hard, carpet burn 
incinerated my pantyhose in a matter of seconds. 
But every time he thrust, I pushed back to meet him. I bowed more than I’d 
ever bowed before, relishing in the burn of my hair being tugged. My lungs strained as Q grunted and rutted, taking me true to his word.

This book was amazing. This book was dark. It was heart breaking, and real and it left me speechless so many times I lost count!

Pepper Winters drew you right back into the dark and twisted world that is Tess and her master Q. She took you on a turbulent ride that had so many twists and turns you had no idea which way the story was going to turn next.

I say this with the most respect ever, but this book is not at all for the faint at heart! I was speechless from the compassion and love between these two intense characters, the passion they share and how their love grew but I was also speechless from the acts or horrors that took place in the pages of this book!

I LOVED what Tess and Q were in the beginning of this book, trying to figure themselves out while trying to figure out what they were together. Tess already knows she loves Q but he doesn't realize he loves her with all his heart & soul until something unthinkable happens right underneath his nose leaving Q reeling and Tess in danger!

Tess survived the horror of the dark again. In this book though, it's a constant battle to see if the dark is too much for Tess this time around and Q is willing to do anything to save her! They are each other's weakness as well as each other's strength!

They tell a beautiful, broken tale that holds you from beginning to end! I am trying so hard not to give any spoilers away, but man I just loved this book. The writing done by this author is intense and insane but SO SO powerful and so real! I was devastated and happy, murderous and sad, and all the emotions any one book could ever evoke from someone! I felt it all because of the writing of Pepper Winters and the way she told you this story! 

I'm DYING, yes slowly and painful, dying to get my hands on Twisted Together because I need to continue this journey with my monsters in the dark!

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
