Tears of Tess Blog Tour: Spotlight, Review & Tour Giveaway

Hey all, welcome to our stop on the Tears of Tess blog tour. Kick back, relax and enjoy the post! ^_^

Tears of Tess
(Tears of Tess, #1)
By Pepper Winters

Genre: Erotic/Dark Contemporary Romance
Tour Organized by: As the Pages Turn


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?

My Review:

 I absolutely LOVE the cover, it's just gorgeous!
Ah-fucking-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.
Tess is an amazing character, the strength and courage she possess's is just wow... I'm in such awe of her. After everything she goes through she still will fight till the end. When she (we) meet Q everything starts to change. Q is a scary, dominant, f'n hot, dark man (he'll bring a little something dark out in all of us). This man just oozes pure lust! Once we get to know him and start to understand him, he really isn't as scary as he seems. I know I speak for myself and quite a few other ladies (^_^) he's won my heart. (Once you go Q, you never go back!!) ;-)
I can't WAIT to read Q's story, just to get inside that man's head... phew! *fans face*
I could seriously go on forever but I really don't wanna give much more away, this book needs to be slowly devoured...just sink your teeth into it and Q will be there to tie you up and entertain you fully.



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
