From New York Times Bestseller Pepper Winters comes the highly acclaimed USA Today Bestselling Series: Monsters in the Dark.

Included in the following edition are:

"My life was complete. Happy, content, everything neat and perfect. Then it all changed. I was sold." 

Kidnapped. Drugged. Stolen. Tess is forced into a world full of darkness and terror.


Tess was innocent and her need for more than what she was getting in life was missing. She was happy with Brax but life was boring and "stale." Events lead to her being taken and what a struggle it was to be free again. She lost her will to be the strong, vibrant person that she once was but Q helped her in so many ways. This handsome, soulful man was a savior.  Q was the one thing that could make or break her.  Both lives torn by different things.  Could they intertwine and become one? Would their lives make or break them?  There were many Tears of Tess...good tears, bad tears...strong tears and heard tears but tears that made them who they were.  This was just the beginning!!

"All my life, I battled with the knowledge I was twisted... fucked up to want something so deliciously dark. But then slave fifty-eight entered my world. "

Q may be a monster, but he's Tess's monster.


I never knew what true darkness was until Quintessentially Q.  My heart broke, mended and broke again with Tess and Q's battles.  Q became a monster to some but to me, their monsters intertwined and became something different.  I really enjoyed the second story in the series.  Tess came back to him and they fought hard to break through what was happening to them.  Just when they thought things were going well...everything started again but the darkness took them both to another level.

Tess had to endure another terror that could not only break her but Q on another level!! Were there strong enough to pull through and get back to each other?

"After battling through hell, I brought my esclave back from the brink of ruin. I sacrificed everything--my heart, my mind, my very desires to bring her back to life."

Q gave everything to bring Tess back. In return, he expects nothing less.

**Not recommended if you don't enjoy dark romance, angst-filled plots, and BDSM.


I loved the Monsters in the Dark series.  Q and Tess fought their individual things but the final book in the series battle was more than the typical battle.  Q brought Tess back from something that most would have not been able to come back from.

Tess was taken again in book two but this battle was Tess's battle. She had to fight to bring Q back from a hell that no one should ever have to fight through.  Pepper gave us the end of a series that made me open my eyes to a darkness that had my heart breaking into pieces but slowly becoming stronger!

Tess slowly became what we all knew she could be and Q's monster was tamed into the loveable person that I wanted.  There are not enough stars that could be given for this series!!   Congratulations to Pepper for a fabulous series!!

MITD - Excerpt

Excerpt from Twisted Together (MITD, #3)

Desire unfurled faster and faster in my belly.

Q frowned, impossibly making him more roguish and handsome. “Tess…? How do you feel?”

How did I feel? Amazing. Lusty. Powerful. Consumed.

I stretched again, arching my back as water lapped around my body. I wanted to moan with how good I felt. I’d never been so warm or contended or horny.

My eyes snapped to Q’s. Him. I had to have him.

“You’re so beautiful,” I murmured. Q froze, his eyes searching mine. Slowly, his lips turned up into half a smile.

I pressed my thighs together. I couldn’t stop my body from overheating and needing. I’d been cursed or charmed—some sort of potion lived inside. I had no other explanation for how much I needed him.

I laughed, throwing myself headfirst into whatever spell I was trapped in. My voice fell from my mouth, tinkling and chiming like a bell. Was that truly me? I sounded magical. I sounded like a princess straight from a storybook.

Who was I? Sleeping Beauty who’d been woken by her prince?

My eyes locked onto Q’s. No. I was the one who’d fallen head over heels for a beast who spoke in foreign tongues.


A flush of heat and wetness built between my legs. I would give anything to have his tongue on me. I wanted his head between my thighs. I wanted his fingers clawing at my hips. I wanted to be used, bruised, adored.

Q cocked his head, chuckling under his breath. “I think Franco miscalculated the dose.”

I shook my head. I didn’t understand. All I understood was his voice had the power to make me come. The deep tenor vibrated through my heart, sending tiny orgasms exploding in my veins.

I needed to be touched. I needed to be kissed.
