Quintessentially Q - Fan Made Book Trailer Youtube link:

“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.

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

Wow effing wowwww! Pepper knocked it out of the park with the Quintessentially Q (Tears of Tess #2)   I have to say Quintessentially Q surpassed my expectations.  I liked Tears of Tess (Book #1) and I wasn’t sure what to expect from book two.  Sometimes POV/sequels are just regurgitated stories of the first book.  This wasn’t the case.  This was the story is all about the aftermath of what happens when Q and Tess reunite.  Once again Tess is collateral damage in this dark and twisted story of control, love and pain.  Q is a monster with a heart of gold…but is his heart big enough to save Tess from the monster inside of him?  Can Tess dig herself out of her own downward spiral? Will anyone survive this emotional abyss? I can’t say much without spoiling this one.

Pepper’s character development and writing style just sucked me into this book. I devoured QQ in a day. This subject matter isn’t for everyone…but if you can deal with it read this book and this series. I highly recommend reading Tears of Tess prior to reading QQ.   One click it now…especially if you like dark and disturbing Kindle Crack (like me:)

EXCERPT:  Quintessentially Q 
With nerves lodged in my throat, I pulled out ropes, cuffs, bondage of all types. 
Tess watched remotely as I piled my arms full of things and headed back to the 
bed. Placing them on the towel at the foot of the four poster, I looked at Tess. “Tie 
me up.” 
I never thought I’d ever say those words. But I needed her to bind me. I 
wouldn’t be able to go through with this if she didn’t. I’d run like a fucking coward, 
or lash out and hurt her.
She picked up the leather cuffs, the buckles clinking. “Where?”
Trying to curb the terror and anger and so many fucking things, I forced myself 
to sit on the mattress and lie down. 
My heart was a fucking crazy thing going a billion miles an hour; I couldn’t look 
at Tess. I couldn’t look anywhere but at the large canopy above my head. The four 
posters were sturdy—half a fucking tree sturdy—once she bound me, I wouldn’t be 
able to get free.
My stomach rolled and I swore I would be sick. Shit. Oh, shit. What the fuck am I
Tess glided closer to the bed, looking like a malnourished ghost. She eyed the 
cuff, then my limbs. My fists pressed against my thighs, every muscle locked tight.
I hadn’t undressed. The element of having jeans and a T-shirt on
was my only 
armament; I wanted to keep it that way. 
I gritted my teeth, spreading my legs for her.
She swallowed and obediently looped the soft leather around my ankle. 
Black spots appeared in my vision as she tightened the buckle around the 
bedpost. She fastened it and I wriggled. 
“You need to do it tighter. I can get free.” I hated every word. I wanted to chop 
out my tongue for being such a traitor, but I wasn’t doing this for me. I was doing 
this for Tess. To somehow break the barrier she’d fortified. If it took dynamite in the 
form of making me shatter, then so be it. 
Tess nodded, tightening the buckle until it bit into my skin. Heat travelled up my
leg, causing me to shiver with helplessness. 
Torturing me with fluttering touches and slowness, Tess secured my other ankle 
before sighing heavily. She looked at me with a thousand wishes in her eyes and no 
hope. Moving toward the head of the bed, she chose a length of silk rope. 
Our eyes never left each other as she bent and captured my hand with hers. 

The moment her delicate fingers touched my trembling skin, I bucked. My cock

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.

“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?
